Citrus Rose Scrub Project by Christen Hammons

Whenever the occasion calls for a gift, I prefer to give something that is handmade. Time doesn't always allow for me to make something extravagant, so I often whip up a batch of body scrubs using my go-to recipe. Everyone loves receiving something homemade, especially when it encourages pampering. While a handmade gift is always nice, it's easy to play with the packaging to make the scrubs extra special.

Citrus Rose Scrub Recipe:

Packaging Materials:

Citrus Rose Scrub Project Instructions:

  1. Combine the salt (or sugar) in a small bowl.
  2. Add oil, and mix with a wooden spoon or stick.
  3. Lightly rub a green inkpad over an entire sheet of labels. Repeat with the black inkpad. (Your goal is to give the labels a slightly grungy, distressed appearance).
  4. Stamp your desired word(s) on the label and adhere to the glass jar.
  5. Wrap the top of the jar with a length of twine or jute.
  6. Add a bit of lowers or herbs, and tie a knot.

This recipe originally appeared in the May issue of Willow and Sage. You can find the complete article inside this issue.
