Last Minute "Naturally" Homemade Mother's Day Gifts


What to get Mom? 

If those four little words have left you realizing that you're empty-handed with only days left until Mother's Day, know that I'm here to help. 

Despite your best intentions to plan ahead, like mine, in picking the perfect gift, and showering your lovely mom's with all of the appreciation that a mom could ever hope for, things don't always go as you envision. With our busy schedules and impromtu to-do's, even so, it's never too late to make your mother a present she'll love.  Especially one that will only take minutes to make and create with all the love.


Truth is a lot of the times, Mother's Day gifts are usually the ones I put off until last minute, I'm always considering other types of gifts but almost 100% of the time I tend to gift my fellow mama's self care, beauty and wellness gifts.



This Lavender body scrub and Lavender & Lemon Room Spray are not only easy but the best gift anyone can receive on any special ocassion.

You all know I'm all about natural and organic as much as possible so its no surprise I would somehow come up with a homemade gift that involves one of my many favorite self care regimens, Young Living essential oils.



Lavender and Lemon are an amazing combination, and with both essential oils providing excellent support for fresh, healthy skin; as well as soothing dry irritated areas.  Sugar scrubs are quite exfoliating and moisturizing to the skin.  Scrubs can be applied to most areas of the body and are especially beneficial to the hands and feet.  Use 1 tablespoon as needed.  To smooth rough areas gently press the granules in the body scrub in a circular motion and rinse.

What you'll need to the wonderful smelling and beautiful looking all natural body scrub. 

Lavender & Lemon Essential Oil Body Sugar Scrub

4 oz plastic or glass jar with lid
Sunflower oil 2 tbps
Coconut oil ½ cup
Sugar (fine granulated) ½ cup
Lavender essential oil (YL preferably) 10 drops
Lemon essential oil (YL preferably) 4 drops
Dry Lemon zest or dry lemon peel
Dry lavender buds
Let sit 48 hours before use

Feel free to print a label or add a tag and ribbon.  The presentation is hardly necessary in this case, but feel free to add this to a gift basket or all by itself, any mom would love you for it.


Use Lavender as part of your evening routing or to just freshen up the room with a calm and soothing scent.

What you’ll need;

Lavender & Lemon Essential Oil Blend Spritz

2 oz spritz bottle (amber glass spray bottles work great I order mine from Amazon)
Lemon essential oil (YL preferably) 4 drops
Lavender essential oil (YL preferably) 10 drops
Witch hazel – fill half the spray bottle
Distilled or filtered water – top to fill 
Close with top and give a good shake! Mix well.

**Optional: You can mix and match scents like peppermint, lavender, lemon, rosemary or chamomile essential oils.

This a great gift and addition to any other gifts you plan to gift to mommy friends, co-workers or your mom!  It's not only a Room Spray but can also be a facial or body spritzer.



These two homemade gifts, are essentially going to make any special mama very happy.  Not only for the purpose but especially because they are from you.



Happy Mother's day to all you special mom's!
