Last Minute Gift Ideas – Handmade Lavender Hand Scrub

As we get closer to Christmas we are starting to prepare all of our gifts. This week our girls wanted to focus on gifts for their teachers so we used our favorite Seventh Generation hand wash to create a simple homemade gift idea. I am an active mom of three, I like to think that our family does a lot of healthy activities. We also use and partner with brands that align to our needs and ideals as parents. We are happy to partner with Seventh Generation® as a brand ambassador. As always all opinions are our own.

Seventh Generation Hand soapsSeventh Generation formulates products with a plant version of synthetic ingredients, taking the time to ensure that not only do they work, but that they are kinder to our families and the planet. Their hand wash is one of the products we use most in our house an essential with cold and flu season upon us.

We really wanted to say thank you for all of the wonderful things our girls’ teachers do for them all year long. What better way to say thank you than with a little pampering and I wanted to create something handmade that is easy enough for my kids to do. That’s why a handmade salt scrub is such a great gift. Seventh Generation Homemade Lavender Mint Salt Scrub IngredientsThings You Need –

Just add half a bottle of hand wash to the Epsom Salt. Seventh Generation Homemade Lavender Mint Salt Scrub (3)To personalize each salt scrub container we wanted to write who it was to and who it was from. So among the many gifts on her teachers table Brooklin’s teacher would know her gift was from her.Personalized Gift For Teachers From Student Then to finish the scrub you’ll want to add in the dried lavender. Then combine the mixture to spread the lavender throughout. Seventh Generation Homemade Lavender Mint Salt Scrub Teacher GiftBrooklin wanted to top her scrub with a fresh piece of lavender.

    The only DIY gifts I have made have been cookies and candy. This lavender scrub is a wonderful gift, definitely going to give this try and gift some to my mom. 🙂

    I really love what you made here and I bet this lavender hand scrub is amazing and makes hands smell so good. I like to make Holiday treats and take them to my sister’s Christmas party on Christmas Eve.
