This year, as the Christmas invitations roll in, prepare your hostess gifts early to avoid a last-minute run to the store. Whip up some of these easy and inexpensive homemade products, add some festive Christmas packaging and enjoy the party! Your hostess will adore you.
Homemade Herbal Toner
Give the gift of radiant skin. Witch hazel is really inexpensive at the drug store and is a fabulous toner. Pour a bottle over your favorite herbs or fresh cucumbers, seal and allow the mixture to soak for a few days in the fridge.
Develop your own concoction using lavender, rosemary, cloves, basil or mint. You can also add a drop or two of essential oil for added fragrance. Strain and pour into plastic or glass bottles with your “custom” label and add a bow and some sparkle for Christmas flare. Be sure to focus on quality rather than quantity because the toner will spoil if not used relatively quickly.
