Challenge 19 - Gifts - Lip Balm/Sugar Scrub

Want some amazing gifts to prepare for Christmas time?  Leslie, Scrapy Land's DTM, created these and they are adorable.  What an inexpensive gift for your coworkers, friends, family, teachers, etc.

Peppermint Sugar Scrub
(Note you can make any scrub with sugar and any oil, just not baby oil)
Swap out the essential oils for any aroma to create another aroma such as Lavendar, Orange or Citrus

1 C Sugar (brown, granulated or superfine) – I used granulated
1/2 C Oil (Olive, Coconut, Almond, Apricot or Grapeseed) – I used Olive Oil
Add 4-6 drops of Peppermint (essential) Oil one at a time until desired aroma is met.
Optional add 1tsp of Vitamin E Oil

Peppermint Lip Balm
1 T beeswax
4 T Almond Oil (can also use olive oil)
7 drops of peppermint oil
Lipstick or Crayon shavings for color if desired
Optional add ¼ tsp of Vitamin E Oil

Place the Beeswax in a double broiler on the stove or you can also use a melting pot. Warm the beeswax until it melts, once melted add in oil and stir for 1 to 2 minutes, add in extract and shavings if desired; stirring to incorporate. Pour melted liquid into containers and allow to cool.
