How to Make 6 Homemade DIY Body Scrub Gifts for Mother’s Day

Mother's day gift idea: homemade body scrubs + free printables for the jars!

My mom does so much for my entire family. She deserves to take a load off once in a while and just take care of herself. I love giving my mom spa gift certificates and other goodies like that.

Pamper your mom on Mother's Day this year by making her homemade DIY body scrubs out of all natural ingredients. The following tutorial includes recipes and printables for six different scrubs:

  1. Oatmeal and coffee scrub
  2. Orange sugar scrub
  3. Coconut salt scrub
  4. Green tea and aloe sugar scrub
  5. Lavender sugar scrub
  6. Coconut and lime sugar scrub

I placed the scrubs in unique glass jars that I purchased from Hobby Lobby and created labels using Maestro Label Designer, the OnlineLabels.com online design program. I used the labels and printables below to make them!

I love the look of the clear labels so you can see the ingredients inside the jars. It's so pretty.
