Last Minute Gift Making - DIY Peppermint Sugar Scrub

Each year we make something special for extended family and friends, just a little homemade gift to share on christmasday. This year we made Fresh Peppermint Sugar Scrub which we did already test...... and we are very pleased with the outcome!
This Peppermint Sugar Scrub can easily be made with children. As soon as the melted coconut butter is not hot anymore everyone can help mixing together the ingredients in a large pot or bowl. Can be a bit messy indeed.... but is there anything more beautiful than a crafty mess? Ha! 
For our Peppermint Sugar Scrub we used Sugar, coconut butter, very finely crushed dried peppermint leafes from our garden and Essential Peppermint Oil from Young Living with its strong, clean, fresh, minty aroma. 
For the DIY Sugar Scrub You will need:
  • 2 Kilogramm white granulated sugar (about 12 little jars)
  • 250 Gramm coconut butter (melted)
  • very finely crushed dried peppermint leafes
  • About 10 drops Essential Peppermint Oil
  • Mix all ingredients well in a large pot.
  • Store in the sanitized, jars, packing the sugar tightly. 
  • Store in a cool place away from direct sunlight.
Enjoy!!!

Happy St. Nicholas Day!

I came here from the forest
I tell you, it is a very holy night!
All over the tips of the firs
I saw bright flashes of golden light ...Sankt Nikolaus und Knecht Ruprecht von Marie-Laure Viriot

Advent

“The first light of Advent is the light of stones.
Stones that live in crystals, seashells, and bones.
The second light of Advent is the light of plants.
Roots, stem, leaf, flower and fruit by whom we live and grow.
The third light of Advent is the light of beasts.
Animals of farm, field, forest, air and sea.
All await the birth in greatest and in least.
The fourth light of Advent is the light of humankind.
The light of love, the light of thought, to give and to understand.”

Rudolf Steiner

Two Children of the Forest for Jennifer inspired by Elsa Beskows Book

Children of the Forest by Elsa Beskow

Children of the Forest affirms the life children experience within the stillness of the forest floor. They are little people who wear acorn caps and toadstool hats and spin yarn from cotton grass.
The children of the forest live deep in the roots of an old pine tree. They collect wild mushrooms and blueberries and shelter under toadstools when it rains.
They play with the squirrels and frogs, and when autumn comes, they collect and prepare food to see them through the long winter, until the warm spring breeze starts to blow.
