Becoming a mother really deepens the understanding and respect we have for our own mothers, our grandmothers, and our friends who are mothers. As mothers we sacrifice so much for our children and families and don’t ask for much in return.
Mother’s Day is a great day to celebrate and lift up all the mothers in our lives. This year for Mother’s Day we are making Homemade Lavender Vanilla Sugar Scrub to pamper all the mother’s in our lives.

My earliest memories are of the my mother and grandmother picking me up from kindergarten (many years ago when it was 1/2 days), going out to lunch, and then shopping. I always had to have a purse and that purse often got lost. Even after a long afternoon of shopping with four kids ahead of them, mom and grandma always backtracked to find my purse, which was most often left hanging on my chair at the restaurant where we ate lunch.
I loved those special days with mom and grandma and love that I can celebrate them on Mother’s Day with a little pampering.
This sugar scrub is super easy and quick to make. It can be made quickly with items that you likely have on hand. It’s a great gift for the kids to help make.
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup coconut oil (we used slightly less than 1/2 cup) You could also use olive oil.
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 5 drops of lavender essential oil (more or less depending on what your prefer)
1. Melt the coconut oil and add all the items to a baggie.
2. Knead the bag until all ingredients are combined.
3. Add the sugar scrub to a small jar.
This recipes makes enough to fill a 8 ounce jar.
Pick up American Greetings cards and gift wrap at Walmart to finish off your gift.
