Green Gifts for the Holidays

Posted on December 11, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Ever wonder what a real green Holiday Season looked like?  Just click on these links and see that wonder and joy is also organic and earth friendly.  If you are thinking about making homemade body scrubs and bath salts, well that’s as easy as one-two-three right here with Sheila.  You’ve got the recipes on this blog and it is so easy.

You might be wondering about the best way to extend the shelf  life of a recipe.  Just mix the dry ingredients and put them in a pretty gift bottle (ala cookie mix in a jar).  Then give the lucky recipient instructions on how to prepare their green skin care by using moist ingredients that they have on hand in the kitchen (honey, egg whites, apple juice, whatever).  Have some fun being creative and save some money too.

When you want to see what other gifts are in Santa’s bag take a look at these links:
