As promised, although VERY late - I am sharing the craft I made for Jessie's Valentine Craft Party. She has pictures up of the party on her blog here so I won't be redundant and post mine, which are virtually the same. But I will post pictures of my craft:
Pink Lemonade Sugar Scrub
I basically followed this recipe by Christy at From Glitter to Gumdrops, however I made a few alterations/additions.
Here are the ingredients I used, basically the same measurements as Christy's but I made a LOT of this scrub (I needed to make enough for 15 people).
As you can see, I swapped Mineral Oil for the Olive Oil in Christy's recipe. I did this because Mineral Oil is odorless and colorless, and I wanted to be sure to have pure colors/scents. I did try a batch with Olive Oil but I didn't like the way it tinted the color, and the smell over-powered the lemon scent. I also added lemon extract in place of lemon juice, and the zest of 2 lemons to my entire batch (would work out to just a scant amount per recipe using her measurements).
All you do is mix the ingredients together until combined. I used my stand mixer for this because a) I had to mix a LOT of sugar scrub and it made it much easier and b) all of the ingredients are food safe (mineral oil is used as a laxative, so although that's not appealing, it *is* technically food safe right?? LOL) so there was no worry of tainting my mixer.
And then scoop it into a pretty jar...
Add some ribbon, a label and gift tag, and Voila! Pink Lemonade Sugar Scrub, ready to gift! Couldn't be easier, but will definitely make your friend or loved one feel so special!
Hope everyone had a wonderful Valentines Day with the ones they love!
Until next time - Love,
