-OK, so Emma is kind of a scrooge saying she only wants consumable gifts … but if we’re being honest, don’t most of us feel this way? Here are few tutorials to make your own for gifting this season:
Sugar scrubs – whipped peppermint hand scrub, vanilla latte coffee scrub, rosemary and lavender sugar scrub, and pumpkin spice sugar scrub.
Homemade beeswax candles.
Homemade soaps – buffalo check rosemary soap, gemstone soaps, grapefruit and mint soap, DIY soap on a rope.
