This makes a lovely just because gift or the perfect stocking stuffer. Don’t forget to put a label on the jar and list the ingredients ! (There’s a rather infamous designer drug made to resemble legal products and sold under the name ‘bath salts’  Reassuring your intended giftee that your gift is legit by listing the ingredients along with the name of the recipe on a tag or label is just smart!
