There’s always something special about homemade gifts. Each year, the girls like to make something to give to family members during the holiday season This year, they decided to make skin balm and it couldn’t be easier. This particular recipe is my favorite because it does wonders to soothe the skin during the cold winter months …
Each of these ingredients have amazing moisturizing benefits on its own but together, they really complement each other to help soothe and improve complexion and skin tone.
Place all the ingredients in a glass jar. Bring a pot filled with about 3 – 5 inches of water to a simmer. Put the jar in pot and let it sit there until all the ingredients have melted, stirring occasionally. Once the mixture is melted and evenly combined, pour it into the container that you ultimately will store it in. Let it completely cool / harden before closing the jar’s lid.
Having the girls make homemade gifts is a fun way for them to put their creativity to work and get into the spirit of the holidays. It all depends on the year, some years the project will take a bit more planning – such as the year they decided to make knitted washcloths for everyone. They wanted to make a set of 3 but I think they didn’t account for the time it would take so everyone ended up with a rather small washcloth … but it’s the thought that counts right : ) This year’s project is a lot easier and something I think all receivers would appreciate.
