December "OILY" Flash

Jessica Pineda Garcia

Christmas!!!!!! It's finally here!!! My favorite time of year!

Words cannot describe how much I love Christmas time! I love all the lights, snow, decorations, and especially wrapping presents!

Like I mentioned before, this will be my last newsletter. Do not freak out! For those who are on Facebook, we still have our own little personal group called "For The Love Of Oils" and for those who aren't, trust me, I will keep in touch via email or text with specials and promotions.

For this last newsletter, I will like to give you some ideas on how to use your oils for faboulous DIY Christmas gifts! Who doesn't like gifts that actually come from the heart and have been given a special touch for doing it all by yourself?!?!?

Christmas is around the corner!!!

How cute are these little scent satchels! Such a great & simple idea! You can make your own sachets or buy them at any craft store. You need cotton balls. Add essential oils of your choice to the cotton balls. They are great to freshen drawers or closets.

Project #7 - Rudolph Sugar Scrub

Recipe makes one Rudolph Sugar Scrub Gift

Mix 1/2 cup of raw sugar with 1 tablespoon of almond oil. Blend well and add 8-10 drops of essential oil and mix again. Choose any essential oil for the scent.

Lavender is a favorite of mine.

Spoon into bag and secure the top with the rubber band.

Take one pipe cleaner and wrap it around the rubber band twice and give it a twist in the back to secure. Then cut two additional pieces of pipe cleaners at least 3″ long and wrap around the first pipe cleaner about an 1 1/2″ from the end. Secure by twisting in the back.

Glue on the red pom pom nose, and optional googly eyes, and you’re done! Easy…and so darn cute!
