DIY Orange Sugar Scrubs and Love2Love Frangrances

This Sunday is Mother’s Day, a day to celebrate, honor, and remember our mom, grandmother, and other special women in our life.  My mom is a wonderful person.  Here’s a recent picture of the two of us:

Jerri and Mom

She’s always there for us and is willing to help her children and grandchildren any way she can.  She constantly sacrifices her time, money (and occasionally her own sanity) and never asks for anything in return.  This is just one reason that I always like to get her something special for Mother’s Day.

When I go shopping for her gift, I run in to 2 problems: First of all, I’m shopping for someone who seems to have everything already.  Secondly, I’m working with a limited budget.  But somehow I always seem to work it out.  Today I’ve got a couple of gift ideas for Mother’s Day that are luxurious AND affordable!

Oatmeal & Brown Sugar Scrubs

As Mother’s Day draws near, not to mention the season to buy gifts for graduations, teacher gifts, and weddings, it seems like the perfect time to talk spa items!  Of course, there are a lot of websites where you can order brown sugar scrubs and other organic beauty products.  And these are fabulous, but sometimes they can be a little expensive, so if you’re on a budget, you should definitely try making your own at home!

Today I’ve got a recipe for an Oatmeal and Brown Sugar Scrub.  This is something that you can mix together in about a minute, and it makes for a really great facial and/or scrub that you can use on yourself or that you can package in a decorative jar and give as a gift. Hope you enjoy!
