DIY: Mother’s Day Sugar Scrub

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.
