HOME-MADE GIFTS FOR CHRISTMAS...

We had a good group for the Hubs family Christmas despite the craziness of our schedules!  Several of us still made home-made gifts to exchange - here's what I made:

Coffee bean candles - Pinterest inspired.  My son had some coffee beans he thought were too old to be any good, so I decided to figure out some thing to do with them.  Supposedly (?) as the candle burns it heats up the coffee beans and smells good.  I put them in cute ramekins.


Here's the other gifts:  a red tray of treats (2 jars of home-made jelly and pecans shelled from the yard), Room freshener spray made up from essential oils, and a shadowbox winter decoration.


We enjoyed our time together mostly just playing games and eating a great Mexican meal together!

OK Chick...I used recipes from these two places: www.mamanatural.com and made up a few of my own. I used vanilla, witch hazel, distilled water (tried making my own...buying is so much easier!), Young Living Oils and on the one listed as Citrus, I added peppermint and spearmint. I bought the bottles on Amazon and shipped from Everything4Oils.
