Get creative and pamper mom this Mother’s Day!
Things may look different this Mother’s Day, but that doesn’t mean mom can’t be treated and celebrated! Here’s a quick and easy sugar scrub recipe to spoil mom on her special day. All you need is three simple ingredients and a cute little jar. Homemade gifts are an awesome way to show that special someone in your life that you care.
DIY Mother’s Day Sugar Scrub
- 1 cup sugar
- 4 tablespoons organic coconut oil
- 10-15 drops essential oil (I used sweet orange, but use whatever scent mom loves!)
Heat 4 tablespoons of coconut oil into a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high until it’s completely melted, about 25-30 seconds.
Pour the melted coconut oil into the sugar and mix well until combined. You can add a little more sugar if the mixture is too wet. Mix until you get the consistency you like.
Add the drops of essential oils and mix until well combined.
Scoop into a small mason jar with a lid. Tie a nice ribbon or twine around the jar to give it that something extra and pair it with a bouquet for fresh flowers for mom!
Store any extra sugar scrub in an air tight container in a dry place to prolong its shelf life.
