cranberries for garland on the tree. There was always something special, hand-
made just for you under the tree from Mom. A lot of times it was out of fiscal

information. While I’ve tried most of these in one way or another over the

Rose Spiritual Center, Inc. present this information for adult use only and make
no representations as to their effectiveness or safety. For those with allergies
or sensitivities it is best to consult your allergist, dermatologist or physician
before using these homemade recipes. Just like when coloring your hair with a
new product, always test home made items on a small area of skin. Further,
when using them to give a gift it is helpful to the recipient to know what
ingredients are in the item(s). If you are unfamiliar with an item called for in the
recipe (these are all modern recipes and not historical, by the way) ask at your
local craft store or pharmacy. Nine times out of ten they’ll either have what you
need or be able to tell you where to go to look for it. Besides, it’s a great place
to get new ideas!
