With Mother’s Day just a few days away, I have two super quick and simple homemade gifts you can make your mom, so she can feel pampered morning and night. For the morning, an energizing grapefruit & mint sugar scrub. And for the evening, a relaxing lavender chamomile linen spray.

These both take literally minutes to make so once you have your ingredients, you can mix these up and have a homemade gift ready to go in no time!

And…as an added bonus, I’ve teamed up with a good blogging friend, Melissa, who has designed you some beautiful labels to use and has put together a gift wrap how-to over on her blog, so be sure to head on over there to get your free printable and gift wrap how-to.

Here’s what you’ll need to make the sugar scrub and linen spray:

  • 1 jar
  • 1 glass spray bottle
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • distilled water
  • grapefruit essential oil
  • peppermint essential oil
  • lavender essential oil
  • chamomile essential oil

Energizing Grapefruit & Mint Sugar Scrub

Grapefruit essential oil is balancing and uplifting and great for skin. Peppermint essential oil is purifying and invigorating. This grapefruit & mint sugar scrub is the perfect way to get your day off to a great start.


In a small bowl add 1 cup sugar.

Gradually add 1/2 cup melted coconut oil (can also use sweet almond oil) until you reach your desired consistency.

Mix together until well blended.

Add 20 drops grapefruit essential oil.

Add 10 drops peppermint essential oil.

Mix well and scoop into jar.

To use: Scrub lightly on skin in shower and rinse off. This scrub will exfoliate and moisturize, leaving your skin soft and smooth.

Relaxing Lavender & Chamomile Linen Spray

Lavender essential oil is well known for its calming and relaxing properties. Chamomile is used to combat anxiety, insomnia and stress. This relaxing lavender & chamomile linen spray is the ideal way to calm the mind and promote rest at the end of the day.


Fill a small 4 oz. glass spray bottle with distilled water.

Add 30 drops lavender essential oil.

Add 10 drops chamomile essential oil.

Shake and spray on pillow and linens before bed.

*If you are using a smaller or larger spray bottle, just adjust the amount of drops accordingly.

Additional uses:

  • Use as a room spray to freshen the air.
  • Spray on towels before showering.

Treat your mom this Mother’s Day, or make these for a friend, or yourself! And don’t forget to visit Melissa’s beautiful blog for free gift tag printables. Enjoy!
