Not quite sure what to put out as your wedding favor on your big day?  Many couples want to share a little something that has meaning behind it or matches their theme of the day.  For a garden wedding or even bridal shower, this herb infused salt scrub would make the perfect favor!  We can already see it…the wedding favor table filled with cute little jars of the scrub with tags saying “Thanks for coming, you’re the salt of the earth!”  Ok ok…a little silly, but wouldn’t they be cute!?

A personally-made wedding favor or gift is always a wonderful gesture that makes both the giver and the recipient feel good. This fragrant salt scrub gift that the girls from GATHER Events created will pamper your guests with its spa-like calming and healing effects. They won’t have to know how truly easy it is to create!  Garnish with a fresh herb sprig and gift away! This would even make a lovely favor for a bridal or baby shower, a hostess or housewarming gift, etc. Who wouldn’t want a little spa indulgence made with loving care?
