For the friend or family member who really adores body care products, this homemade, creamy white and almond-scented body scrub makes such a welcome holiday gift. Also unique is that a body scrub makes a delightful departure from the calorie-laden baked goodies that are so popular for holiday gifting. And it takes practically no time to whip it up in your home kitchen.
Recipe by Poppy of Bunny Kitchen
I have always had a deep connection with animals as far back as I can remember. It probably comes as no surprise, therefore, that I became a strict vegetarian at the age of 6 and am now a devout vegan in my twenties. I work in a wildlife hospital, treating and rehabilitating all kinds of wild animals for the hopeful eventual release back to the wild.
My spare time is usually centred around food, I love getting creative in the kitchen along with spending time with my 24 rescued pets!
GRAPEFRUIT AND POPPY SEED SUGAR SCRUB
Per cup of scrub, mix together:
200g/1 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
A few drops of vitamin e oil (optional)
Then stir in:
8 drops of grapefruit essential oil.
Jar and label and give as a thoughtful gift.
The finishing touch is a puffy, colorful bow taped to the top or one that’s wrapped around the jar.
