My amazing mom is such a hard worker. She excels at everything that she does, is a ton of fun, and has always been a wonderful mom. Now that I’m older and have kids of my own, I really appreciate all of the long hours that she has put in to raise us four kids. From being the PTA president when I was in elementary school, to being patient with me during my picky stage when it would take endless hours and five different stores to buy one dress, she has been the epitome of a selfless mom. Because of this, I want to give her the gift of relaxation and pampering so she can be rewarded for all her years of awesomeness!
Since Mother’s Day is coming up, I made a homemade peppermint sugar scrub that takes just a few minutes to make, smells amazing, and is a GREAT way for you to pamper your hard-working mom, especially when combined with other spa items in a nice gift basket. Because all moms deserve some serious pampering, right?!
First I’ll share the scrub directions with you, and then I’ll share how I packaged it all up for a great Mother’s Day gift!
Homemade Peppermint Sugar Scrub
- 1 cup sugar (I used regular white granulated sugar, but you could also use Turbinado sugar for a coarser scrub)
- 1/4 cup coconut oil + 1 Tbsp.
- 8 drops high quality peppermint oil
You can use either fractionated coconut oil (which is odorless and always a liquid) or regular organic coconut oil (which has a nutty coconut scent and melts at 76 degrees). I used the regular coconut oil, and melted it to liquid form.
Place the sugar in a bowl, add the coconut oil, and mix thoroughly. Then add in about 8 drops of a high quality peppermint oil and mix.
Super easy, right?!
You won’t believe how amazing this easy homemade peppermint sugar scrub smells…. it’s absolutely heavenly! I put my scrub inside a small glass jar with a cute metal lid that I found at Target, and placed it in a basket with lots of other spa and foot care items for Mom.
When Mom is ready to use the sugar scrub, all she has to do is scoop up a small amount, rub it into any dry areas of skin, then rinse off. Her skin will be left soft and smooth after this amazing scrub!
My absolute favorite thing inside the spa gift basket is the Amopé™ Pedi Perfect™ Electronic Foot File. This electronic foot file is SO cool!! It’s the gadget you didn’t know you needed until you have it, and then you wonder how you got along without it for so many years!
The Pedi Perfect™ Electronic Foot File is a great way to get soft beautiful feet effortlessly. All you do is turn on the foot file, and place it on hard skin areas on your feet. The hard skin is buffed away by a refillable roller that makes your feet nice and smooth. I follow up with Amopé™ Foot Cream that feels so luxurious on my feet at the end of a long day.
I found the perfect basket to hold all of the pampering goodies I bought, which include my DIY Peppermint Sugar Scrub, the Amopé™ Pedi Perfect™ Electronic Foot File, Amopé™ Foot Cream, a natural bath sponge, a massaging brush, exfoliating gloves, a nail brush, a loofah with a long handle, a spa mask, and a bath sponge. My mom is going to love it!
You can find the awesome Amopé™ Pedi Perfect™ Electronic Foot File at Target for $39.99 in the Footcare aisle and Side Cap displays. Right now Target has an awesome Cartwheel offer for a FREE $5 Target Gift Card when you buy 1 gadget from 5/3 – 5/9! If your mom is a pink lover like me, you’ll love that Target will also have a special limited edition pink gadget that is only available while supplies last (as well as the standard blue gadget).

Now that you know that I’m going to pamper my mom with a fun spa gift basket, how do you plan on spoiling your mom on Mother’s Day?
