Here is a unique idea to pamper Mom! 
Make a great face wash using our local honey and fresh olive oils. Honey promotes skin healing and has natural antimicrobial properties. Olive oil is full of antioxidant vitamins A & E and is a great moisturizer!
Just use a teaspoon of honey and add a few drops of Lemon or Blood Orange olive oil to the honey. Mix together and rub on your face to clean. Use a little olive oil as a moisturizer after washing!
Spicy Olive Salt or Sugar Scrub
Fill decorative jar with coarse sea salt or sugar crystals. Fill jar with The Spicy Olive’s Lemon or Blood Orange olive oil and put on lid. Mom can use a small spoon to scoop out a little into the palm of her hand and exfoliate away any rough spots on her hands as she washes! The Lemon or Blood Orange oil leaves hands with a great fresh scent!
