Vanilla & Lavender Body Scrubs

As promised here is the recipe for the body scrubs:
After I made this, I tried some {just on my hands} to see what it feels like, as Cheri and myself have this most difficult skin type. … very sensitive.   
I liked it, my hands felt softer immediately, and I had no strange reaction or anything of the kind.  But, I have to admit – I absolutely LOVE the Vanilla!!  The smell … heavenly!
6 parts Epsom Salt
2 parts Sea Salt {I used Maldon}
1 1/2 parts Bicarbonate of Soda
1 part fine Coconut
1/2 part Almond Oil   {you can increase or decrease this as you prefer}
Few drops Lavender Essential Oil  {quantity depends on your preference}
Few drops Vanilla Essence   {   ”   quantity as above   ”   }
Vanilla seeds  {   ”  quantity as above   ”   }
Few drops Blue Food Coloring
Few drops Yellow Food Coloring
– Mix the Epsom Salt, Sea Salt, Bicarbonate of Soda and the Coconut – add the Almond Oil {start with a small amount and add until you reach your preferred texture} – Divide the mixture in two.
– Add a few drops of Lavender Essential Oil and Blue Food Coloring to one half – mix well.
– Add a few drops of Vanilla Essence, Vanilla Seeds and a few drops Yellow Food Coloring to the other half of the mixture – mix well.
I used two small containers, added  labels, some bows and an ice-cream stick – all ready to use or to give as a gift  !
Would you make Bath salts and Body scrubs for yourself or only as a gift?  … or both ..?
