Here is a project that a friend shared with me. She found the link here at Under the Table and Dreaming. What a fun and easy project. I made a bunch for gifts this year.
Now I need to make a jar for myself. It really does make your hands feel smooth. I get major winter hands, so maybe this will help!
2 1/2 c. sugar
1 c. extra virgin olive oil
few drops of essential oil (I used mostly lemon and a drop of mint)
Mix together and fill jars. I made a double batch and it filled 7 half pint jars.
Use on dry hands to avoid contamination.
I found the tags here. They were blank, so I used my paint program and added the names and labels.
(Lemon Mint pictured below with wooden craft spoons for applying.)
The jars are little canning jars. I love this style. They are more pricey than the regular half pint canning jars, but for little gifts like these it is worth it. That being said, it was still only $4 for 4 jars. I found them at Walmart, but grocery stores sell them as well.
