With Mother’s Day only a couple days away, you should already have a gift prepared for her. But if you’re like me, life happens and things don’t get done on time. There’s no time to order anything already made online, and buying something from the store, just won’t cut it: mom deserves a lot more than just a run of the mill gift from the store.
Yes, you could get her some flowers and a chocolate, but how much thought did you put into that?
But don’t worry: I went all over the web and found a nice variety of gifts you can make for Mother’s day with ingredients you have in your pantry and a few drops of your (and your mom’s) favorite essential oils. Let’s get started!
1. Moisturizing Body Oil
Giving mom a nice bottle of aromatherapy moisturizing body oil will calm her spirit and refresh her skin. Extremely easy to make, but oh, so special! Here’s the recipe I used for my mom:
- 1/2 oz Jojoba oil
- 1/2 oz Grapeseed oil
- 5 drops of Lavender essential oil
- 7 drops of Frankincense essential oil
Combine all oils in a dark glass bottle and decorate as you wish. Lavender oil is relaxing and frankincense is a great oil for skin all around. Mom will definitely enjoy this gift!

2. Creamsicle Lip Scrub With Wild Orange Essential oil
I love the fresh wild orange smell of this lip scrub, and since it’s so easy to make, this would be a nice option for my mom. You only need a few ingredients to make this lip treatment: sugar, coconut oil, vanilla bean paste and essential oil. Take a look at Holly’s step by step tutorial to see how easy it is to make this yourself.
3. Coconut Lime Sugar Scrub
Sugar scrubs are extremely easy to make, yet with the right presentation they make an amazingly luxurious gift for any occasion and Mother’s day is no exception. To make this yummy smelling skin softening sugar scrub you’ll only need 4 ingredients: white sugar, coconut oil, shredded coconut and lime essential oil. Amy has some gorgeous pictures of the process, worth seeing.
4. Stress Relieving Foot Soak
Every mother I know is on her feet for way too long! Wouldn’t it be great if at the end of the day she could soak her feet in a stress relieving, relaxing, dream inducing mixture with essential oils? Of course it would! This recipe can be ready in minutes, and Katie even has printable labels so you don’t need to stress over how to make it look beautiful ;).

Have fun making these great mother’s day gifts with essential oils for mom on her special day!
