Here are a couple of easy ideas for giving your mom (or partner) a special homemade gift she will actually use.
Here’s the quick method to making an herbal oil. I used rose buds but you can use any dried herb in the same way. If you want to try the Folk Method instead, it’ll take longer but no artificial heat is needed so it’s a tad easier, especially if you are crafting with kids. Either way, herbal oils are fun to make and so useful~ you can use them just as you would any oil on your body, face, hair, or in a bath. You can use them to make salves, body butter, serums, body scrubs, perfumes, and more. Rose oil would make a lovely Mother’s Day gift and you have time to do the Folk Method if you prefer as long as you start soon. Happy Creating!
