Living Homegrown Podcast with Theresa Loe

LH 169: Easy Ideas for All-Natural Gifts From Your Garden

There’s something special about a homemade gift. But it becomes even more special when it includes a little piece of your garden as well.

It can be as simple as a dried flower or an herbal sprig. But that added touch means that you are sharing something that you nurtured with your own hands. And THAT can't be found in a store.

In today’s episode, host Theresa Loe brought back garden author, Stephanie Rose, to share her tips and insights into making extraordinary crafts that can be shared as gifts. And she has graciously included a recipe for Tub Tea that you can print out and make this holiday season…or any time of the year. Just got to our show notes at: www.LivingHomegrown.com/169 to print the recipe/instructions.

You will learn:

  • Why botanical gifts can be the best gifts of all
  • What type of equipment is needed when crafting at home
  • Why we should avoid chemicals on our skin
  • The difference between essential oils and fragrance oils
  • What a lotion bar is and how they are made
  • What are bath melts
  • The joys of Tub Tea
  • Tips for gift wrapping the things you make
  • How long homemade body products last
