When we were on vacation, one of the restuarant’s we ate at had an amazing salt scrub in their restrooms. I was too cheap to buy it thinking, “I could make that”. Today I spent some time getting ready for Valentines. I love Valentines Day because it is a chance to tell those around you how much you care and appreciate them. One of things I made was scented salt scrub. It was easy to make and was very economical because most of the ingredients I already had.
To this mixture I added lemon zest and lavender oil. In one batch I blended the oil with dried lavender also. It smells great and the ground lavender adds a great texture, but it is brown. I like it but will probably keep it for my self because of the color.
The next step was the packaging. Presentation can be so important. I made some labels that I liked and added them to the containers (Dollar Store) that I had filled with scrub.
I think my favorite part of this is the bamboo spoons that I am attaching to each scrub. At Christmas I bought some bamboo serving spoons. I did not use all of them and I cut off the bottom (about three inches) and then sanded the cut. They made cute spoons for dipping the scrub.
Each one will have a bow and spoon before it is delivered on Valentine’s Day. We have a folder with all the Valentine free printables we will be featuring. We hope they help you tell those around you how much you care.
