Christmas Neighbor, Teacher, Coworker Gifts

This Christmas has really snuck up on me. I am no where close to getting my sewing projects done (more on that later), and I realized that I needed to get teacher gifts and coworker gifts done super fast. So I took to the internet to see what I could do that was quick with items I already had at home.
Then it hit me......... Sugar Scrubs!!!
As I searched the internet I found that most all of the recipes were basically the same.
Basic Sugar Scrub Recipe
3 Cups White Granulated Sugar
1 Cup + 2 TBL Olive Oil
10 Drops Essential Oil
4 7oz Containers with lids
Ribbon and Tags
*makes approximately 4 jars 
Mix ingredients in a glass bowl with a metal spoon. (Essential oils are likely to permeate a wooden spoon, or a plastic bowl.) Fill jars and seal with lids. Decorate with ribbons and tags.

I was so excited to have everything in house for this gift idea except the jars. So a super quick trip to a local big box store and I found these 7 oz Mason jars for about $1-$2 each. I used my Young Living Peppermint essential oil and oooohhhhhh it was divine!!!
I did add a few extra drops to each jar and mixed it in really well. The ladies at work loved it!!!

Happy Holidays!!!!
