There's nothing sweeter than receiving a hand made present from a special child. Here is a way for kids to make a matching set of body scrub and bath salts for someone special.

You can make pretty tops with a fabric circle and piece of string.

Cut some fabric about 2cm larger than the jar.

I had some lovely blue gingham, but Michelle said no!


Add sticky labels, or tie a tag onto the string.

Notes
Safety: This activity should be done under supervision - the sugar and oil are safe to eat, but it's not advisable for kids to eat the essential oils (some are safe, some are not). Epsom salts are safe to eat in small amounts, but have a laxative effect. Keep fingers away from mouths and wash them afterwards.

Essential oils: For a bath gift, I like either calming or invigorating oils.

Calming oils include lavender, rose, chamomile and mandarin.
Invigorating oils include any of the citrus oils (lemon, grapefruit, sweet orange) and peppermint.

Bergamot can do both!
