On Monday I shared a fabulous Mother’s Day Wish Basket Giveaway and then I got to thinking about how many fantastic DIY Body Scrubs I have seen lately and how I have never tried that myself.
They are clearly so easy to make and I just LOVE a nice hot bath and a good exfoliating scrub (hello, Summer is almost here!) but I don’t always like the price tag on some of those fancier brands in the stores.
So I rounded up some amazing ideas and I think I am going to try one, if not all, very soon. That’s a lot of hot baths and I, for one, am perfectly ok with that. 😉 You won’t believe some of these scents – orange… lemon… root beer.. coffee… gingersnap and more!! I die.

I am completely inspired and I also love that there are so many fun packaging and personalized gift tag / label ideas. Almost all of these include ingredients we already have on hand or are that are inexpensive and easy to buy. Love that!
Oh, and even though it’s not a scrub, I also have to give an honorable mention to this awesome Homemade Olive Oil Night Cream by Jellibean Journals because… yes, please. Let’s moisturize after we scrub, shall we? You might recall Jelli posted her amazing Nutella Cream Puffs here recently. Yum.
So here’s to pampering ourselves AND our Moms or anyone else that means so much to us this Mother’s Day!
Which one is your favorite homemade recipe? Have you ever made your own body scrub or cream? I’d love to hear all about it! Now somebody needs to run me a hot bath, pronto!! 😉
