If you make “novelty” or “food” Bath & Body, this suits perfectly, you can serve ithis scrub as a “scoop”, or if you love the texture, but prefer a non-food type product, a Bail Jar, Economy Tub or Wide Neck Jar will also work beautifully to present the scrub.

Since fresh flowers aren’t always in the budget, and because I have a brown thumb, I started thinking about what I could do to brighten up our apartment with flowers without actually using flowers.
