Okay. Every year I have really, really good intentions. I say, "I'm going to get ahead. I'm not doing everything I do at the last minute. I'm starting in November at the latest."

Yeah, right.

Well, this is going to be my year for following through. It's a great time for craftsmas: the economy still stinks, and guess what? Handmade really is nicer.

I'm starting simple. Manageable. Here we go.

Full Sun Body Scrub
1/2 cup olive oil
1 cup coarse salt (try to find the really coarse kind -- you can get it at many asian grocers)
10 drops lavender essential oil
5 drops geranium essential oil

Winter Woods Body Scrub
1/2 cup liquid glycerin (available in health food stores or online)
1 cup coarse granulated sugar
10 drops rosewood essential oil
5 drops lemon essential oil

I'm packaging mine in hermetic compote jars.
