  • Red food coloring if you want to make it look a bit more festive.

Mix your ingredients together, keeping the red and white mixtures separate. Then, add to a mason jar, layering the white and red until you reach the top. Add a string or some ribbon and a handwritten label and voilà: You've got yourself a homemade present that feels way more thoughtful and special than any store-bought body scrub you could buy.
