Sometimes moms have everything and it is so hard to find a special present for them. Or maybe you are on a budget but you still want to surprise your mom with something they will enjoy!
Don’t look any further or spend a lot to make your mom feel super special on Mother’s Day!
DIY gifts have that extra little bit of love and personality from the maker which makes this a perfect gift for Mother’s Day! You could also gift this beautiful sugar scrub to your mom for her birthday or Christmas.
In this post we will show you how to make this personal and homemade Mothers Day craft project using products you probably already have at home.
Why We Love This Homemade Body Scrub Gift
- It’s easy to make. This quick sugar scrub will only take you about 10 minutes to create, from start to wrapping.
- It’s all natural. You will probably have all these natural sugar scrub ingredients in your pantry right now!
- It will make any Mother feel amazing. What does sugar scrub do? Well, the sugar naturally exfoliates skin, leaving it soft and glowing. While essential oils have amazing benefits such as anti-aging, mood-lifting and moisturizing. So sugar scrub benefits make this the perfect at-home spa treatment.
Easy Sugar Body Scrub Recipe
This recipe shows how to make a body scrub with coconut oil but you can change to any oil you prefer. Other oil options are olive oil or almond oil.
- 2 cups of Sugar
- ¼ to 1 cup coconut oil
- Optional Essential oil
- Food Coloring if you want to make your scrub extra pretty. Maybe in your moms favorite color.
- Be sure to add Vitamin E oil for extra skin care.
- Mason Jar
Mix some of the sugar and all of the oil in a bowl.
For the best homemade body scrub, we used raw sugar as it has better exfoliating power. If you want a softer scrub, use a finer type of sugar.
Add in your chosen essential oils while stirring the mixture. For our sugar scrub recipe, we found about 10 drops but this will vary, depending on the quality of oil you use and the type of oil.
For example, you may only need a few drops of stronger scented oils like peppermint but more for floral scents like Rose.
If you wish to color your sugar scrub add the food coloring at this point.
Pop in the oil from a Vitamin E capsule at this step too.
Add the rest of your sugar until it is the consistency you want.
Put your sugar scrub into a container. We love to put ours in mason jars to give as gifts.
