    • Happy holidays! I love the look of brown paper wrapping with a pretty ribbon – it would be great to wrap these goodies in.

  1. I love the idea to make magnesium cream and lotion. I already make a magnesium oil, but I hadn’t thought to make anything like that for gifts. I think people would really like it! Brilliant idea!
