How to Make 3 Homemade DIY Body Scrub Gifts for Mother’s Day


Pamper your mom on Mother’s Day this year by making her homemade DIY body scrubs out of all natural ingredients.

I made three different kinds for my mom: an oatmeal and coffee scrub, an orange sugar scrub and a coconut salt scrub. I placed the scrubs in unique glass jars that I purchased from Hobby Lobby and created labels using OnlineLabels.com online design program. I used their 3″ x 2″ Clear Gloss Scalloped Oval label and their 2″ Clear Matte Circle label. I love the clear look so you can see the ingredients inside the jars. It’s so pretty.

Here are the recipes:

Oatmeal and Coffee Scrub

  • 1/4 cup of coffee grounds
  • ½ cup of olive oil
  • 1 cup oatmeal

Pour the quick cook oatmeal (or grind your whole oats in a food processor) into a mixing bowl. Gently stir in the coffee grounds. Pour in the olive oil and mix in well.  After it is mixed, scoop it into your glass jar.

Orange and Sugar Scrub

  • 2 cups of sugar
  • ½ cup of olive oil
  • orange zest

Zest an orange to get 5 tbsp of zest. Pour sugar, olive oil and zest into a mixing bowl and mix gently until it’s evenly blended. After it is mixed, scoop it into your glass jar.

Coconut Salt Scrub

  • 1 cup of coconut oil
  • 1 cup of pink Himalayan sea salt

Use a spoon to mix together coconut oil and sea salt in a mixing bowl. After it is mixed, scoop it into your glass jar.

The scrubs are good for 2 weeks and will stay fresher if they are stored in the refrigerator.
