Mother’s Day Lavender Basket + DIY Lavender Body Scrub

May 2, 2017

Purchasing a thoughtful gift on Mother’s Day is a no-brainer, I’ve even made a helpful Mother’s Day gift guide that I’ll be sharing later this week, but there is definitely something to be said about creating a homemade gift for your mama on her special day. I just love putting together themed baskets and this lavender one is the ideal option for Mother’s Day. It’s a great mix of homemade elements, with a do it yourself lavender body scrub, and some beautiful purchased gifts like a lavender-linen scented candle and the softest Turkish towel. I love that this basket can also lend inspiration so that you can create any special theme that your mom would love. I find lavender is such a calming and relaxing scent so this basket would be perfect for a busy mom who needs some time to relax and pamper herself, but I also think that a rose or even a lilac (if you can find the flowers) themed basket would be just as beautiful. 

DIY Lavender Sugar Scrub:

-1/2 cup organic coconut oil
-1/2 cup sugar
-10-15 drops lavender essential oil
-2 tsp dried lavender buds + more for topping

To make:
Simply add the ingredients into a bowl and gently mix until combined. Transfer your scrub into a sealable jar and top with a few dried lavender buds. You can also add some ribbon and a sweet tag for a personalized touch, but I left mine plain since it was going into this basket.
For The basket I used:
– DIY lavender scrub (instructions above)
– Card (here)
– Lavender and Linen candle (here)
– Lavender linen spray (here)
– Lavender soap (here
– Turkish Towel (here)
– Dried lavender (should be available at your local florist or lavender farm)
-Silk ribbon (here)

{Tie dried lavender with a silk ribbon for an extra special touch}
