DIY Mother's Day Salt Scrub Bar

Today Julie Blanner is back with a fabulous activity that’s perfect for a Mother’s Day celebration. Rather than hosting a regular meal, why not gather your favorite mamas together and let them create their own custom salt scrubs? This super simple DIY will give the special women in your life the chance to really treat themselves — and to have fun in the production process! Just provide the materials for this deliciously scented scrub (might we suggest adding a mimosa bar to the soirée?) and you’ll be set for a lovely afternoon!

  • Orange Mint Sugar Scrub

    – 3 cups sugar
    – 1 cup grapeseed oil
    – Orange essential oil
    – Mint essential oil {Julie personally loves spearmint}

    Directions: Combine sugar & oil well. Add essential oil — generally about 2/3 orange & 1/3 mint, but this can be customized to each person’s liking. Spoon into containers & add a few extra drops of essential oils to the top of each scrub.
