3 Homemade Mother’s Day Gifts to Help Your Mom Relax
Nothing says, “I love you, mom!” like a Mother’s Day gift that you made yourself—and makes her feel like a million bucks.
With most moms sheltering in place this year, it’s hard to think of a better, more convenient gift than one that helps relieve her stress and anxiety by transforming her bathroom into a relaxing, stay-at-home spa.
Here are three easy recipes you can use to create a soothing, mindful present for your mom and let her know just how special she is.
The best part? You only need a few ingredients (that you probably already have in your kitchen cupboard).
Make-It-Yourself Body Scrub
- ½ cup sugar
- ⅓ cup olive oil
- 10-15 drops Forest Remedies essential oil*
Combine sugar, olive oil and essential oil in a bowl and mix well. Transfer to a Mason jar or other airtight storage container.
Sugar dissolves very quickly in water. If you’d like your scrub to last longer, simply substitute sugar with salt.
Running low on olive oil?
No problem. For this recipe (and those below), feel free to substitute and/or experiment with other plant-derived oils commonly found in the kitchen—like sunflower, avocado, peanut, soybean, sweet almond or canola.
Make-It-Yourself Bath Salt
Ingredients (for 1 bath)
- ¼ cup Epsom salt
- ¼ cup sea salt
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 3 drops Forest Remedies essential oil*
Stir the salts, olive oil and essential oil together in a mixing bowl. Transfer to a Mason jar or other airtight storage container.
Make-It-Yourself Scalp Massage Blend
Ingredients (for 1 massage)
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 6 drops Forest Remedies essential oil*
Drop olive oil and essential oil into a small bottle with a lid and shake vigorously.
