Mother’s Day is quickly approaching and there are many posts around about gift ideas for moms. So today I am sharing some DIY beauty products that a DIY mom who loves “all things” essential oils might enjoy. These products are all made with natural ingredients that are very healthy for the body!
So why not gather up some ingredients and make mom feel real special by giving her a beauty basket that you have personally made? I think any mom would be delighted to have such a basket! After all, no money or time is too much to spend on mom right? Just consider how much they have done for us!!
Here are all the ingredients you will need to make these. They are linked to where they could be bought online. You may spend about $50 to $60 (less or more) depending on how much you buy of each product. But the ingredients will last a while because most of the recipes only require a little of each.
- African Shea Butter
- Raw Honey
- Dr. Bronner’s Liquid Castile Soap
- All Vegetable Glycerine
- Organic Coconut Oil
- Pure Avocado Oil
- Pure Sweet Almond Oil
- Pure Vitamin E Oil
- Epsom Salt
- Lavender Essential Oil
- Peppermint Essential Oil
- Dried Lavender Flowers (optional)
These can be purchased from a local grocery.
- Sea Salt
- Baking Soda
- Dried Rosemary Sprigs (optional)
- Cocoa Powder (optional)
Storage supplies: These are what I used but you can choose sizes based on the amount of each product desired to make.
- Soap dispensers (x2): At least 12 oz each
- Cosmetic storage containers (x4): 5 grams each
- Cosmetic storage jars (x2) 4 0z and 6 to 8 0z
- Large .5 gallon glass jar
Target is always a great place to find various sizes of storage jars, too. Just check out the dollar isle! I could never have enough of those little jars. They come in so handy!
Once you have gathered all these ingredients, you can totally make all 7 beauty products shown below! I have made all of these and so far, have not yet regretted or felt like I wasted time and money. Mom will feel refreshed with these products and will know that she is avoiding that harsh chemicals that come with store bought beauty products. Click on each Photo to see how to make them.
- Homemade Lavender & Rosemary Bath Salts
- Homemade Honey Face Wash
- Homemade Teeth Cleaner/Toothpaste
- Homemade Eye Cream

Don’t forget to throw in a few extras such as towels, bath accessories, small jars of sea salts, and a few bottles of your favorite (or mom’s favorite) essential oils, too, so mom can make her very own creations! Here is to hoping your mom enjoys her beauty basket!
Oh and here is a small treat mom might enjoy after a refreshing DIY pampering:)
What do you think of this beauty basket? Do you think a mom (or you as a mom) might enjoy something like this? At least to try it out and see how it works for you? I would love to know your thoughts in the comments!
