Would your mother prefer a gift that you made yourself? Try this DIY recipe for bath salts. Let mom spend some time relaxing in the tub on Mother’s Day!
The recipe requires coarse sea salt, epsom salts, baking soda, and essential oil (in a scent your mom likes). Food coloring is optional. Follow the recipe and put the bath salts into a nice container.
Does your mom like candles? Make a quick and easy DIY Mother’s Day gift by repurposing an empty, glass, baby food jar (or more than one).
In addition to the clean jar (with label removed) you will need a votive candle or tea light and some creativity. Decorate the jar by using sharpie markers, a lace doily, or by crocheting around the base of the jar (to about halfway up). Your mom will love that you made her gift yourself!
