{With a Shot of Brandy}

Treat your loved ones with this super scrub by Brandy!!

* * *

Hey!! My name is Brandy and you can usually
find me blogging away over at With A Shot Of Brandy. I am so happy today to be
participating in the 12 Days of Christmas at Everything Under the Moon.
(Big Thanks to Nikki!)

A little bit more about me, I am a
technology manager by day but a crazy crafter and jewelry designer (Agora Bliss) by
night. I blog about all of the things that I love {like} food, crafts,
and event planning. I am aspiring to grow my jewelry boutique and start
my own entertainment production company. Wish me the best!

Today, I wanted to share with you a

creative gift that is quick and easy and a wonderful treat this holiday
season! As a crafter, I know that everyone is always working with their
hands and sometime we don't treat them as we should. It's time to give
your hands a little TLC with my {Lemmon Sugar Scrub}. This a great gift
for your mother, sister or your girlfriends. It's an easy way to say that
you were thinking about them.
Want to give the gift of of soft hands this
season? You can do it in less than 10 mins!

Ingredients: {Makes 12oz of hand scrub}

- 2 & 1/2 cup of sugar
- 1 cup of extra virgin olive oil
- 4 Tablespoons of Lemon Juice {or drops of
lemon scented essential oil}
Mix 2 1/2 Cups of Sugar with 1 Cup of Extra
Virgin Olive Oil. Add in 4 Tablespoons of Lemon Juice {or scented
essential oils to your liking}. This mixture will make enough to fill a
12oz. Mason Jar.

For this gift, I was trying to think of a
few creative ways to package the Lemmon Sugar Scrub and a mason jar seems
to work best. I purchased a mason jar, a few holiday vinyl transfers and
cute red ribbon and paper accessories.
This packaging is simple and very cost
effective, especially if you have quite a few that you want to do! The
jars are wonderful and can be reused for another project or just to store
the next batch of more Lemmon Sugar Scrub.
*Another cute idea: Print the or
hand-write the recipe on a tag and attach to the lid of the jar. This
makes it super easy for your recipent to enjoy this wonderful gift over
and over again!*
