DIY Mother's Day Beauty Gift Ideas


It is wonderful to make gifts for loved ones, using products you may already have in the house and recycling old glass jars.

I'm going to show you 3 easy beauty products that would make a thoughtful gift for Mother's Day or any day!

I have used ingredients that are easy to find in paper or glass packaging. Utilise what you have in the house before buying anything new.

1. Lemon Lip Scrub

It is still cold here in Ireland in March so this is a scrub for lips that get dry easily. The sugar naturally and gently removes any dead skin from the lips and the oil will leave the lips soft and moisturised.

You'll need....

2 tbsp sugar

1 tbsp olive oil

2 drops pure lemon essential oil

Lemon oil is FDA approved to be safe to ingest.

Mix all the ingredients together and place in a jar. This is a mini jam jar. Make sure to sterilise all jars. For this just boil the jars in water for 15 minutes and let air dry.

Store in a cool, dry, dark place.

2. Lavender and Rose Body Oil

There is nothing quite like a beautiful smelling body oil. They are expensive in the shops and yet very simple to make.

You'll need....

5 tbsp sesame oil

1 tbsp jojoba oil (or argan oil)

10 drops lavender oil

5 drops geranium oil ( or ylang yang oil)

5 drops rose oil ( or jasmine oil)
