DIY| Pomegranate Lip Gloss & Peppermint Foot Scrub

So i recently saw this really interesting and simple way of making your own Pomegranate lip gloss & Peppermint foot scrub from SELF. These could be great yummy gifts for the holidays and they're so easy!  

Pomegranate Lip Gloss         

• 1/2 cup petroleum jelly
• 1 scoop or 2 packets Natural Cherry Pomegranate Crystal Light
• 3 or 4 small jars or tins with lids

• 1tsp Water

Mix petroleum jelly and Crystal Light in a bowl, adding the water a few drops at a time, until gloss turns berry red. Use a spatula to smooth the formula into jars.

Peppermint Foot Scrub
• 4 strawberries
• 1/2 cup sugar
• 2 tbsp olive oil
• 2 tbsp vegetable oil
• 8 drops peppermint essential oil
• 1 decorative jar

Make this the night before gifting it—it's perishable after 2 weeks because of the fresh fruit. In a bowl, puree or mash berries, then add sugar and olive and vegetable oils. Mix until well blended. Add peppermint oil 2 drops at a time until scrub smells minty. Spoon into jar, then stash in the fridge. 
Write the expiration date on a card.
