This is another idea for home-made gifts. I discovered when I made this that you can also use body splash or your favorite perfume for fragrance.

The idea of adding essential oils and food colour, in particular, is a real nice one. I tried this with peppermint essential oil and it left my skin feeling cool, soft and smooth. Thanks for posting!
