Who could use a little extra pampering right about now? Mothers, teachers and brides-to-be always come to mind for me, especially in the spring. Homemade body scrub recipes are easy to make and look so cute in small jars as gifts for Mother’s Day, Teacher Appreciation Week or bridal showers. Of course, you deserve a little pampering too! Make a homemade body scrub for yourself to exfoliate and get your skin ready for summer.
Warm spring weather makes me think of sandals, flip-flops and getting ready for summer! One way to get ready for summer is to remove all those dead skin cells that have built up over the winter with an exfoliating homemade body scrub. Making a homemade body scrub yourself at home is easy to do. In fact you probably have most of the ingredients you need right in your kitchen.
I’ve seen so many inspiring homemade body scrub recipes at our weekly Think and Make Thursday link party that I had to round them up to share with you. If you like any of these ideas though, please click through and pin from the original source, not from Kenarry: Ideas for the Home. These bloggers work very hard to create fantastic content and deserve all the credit. If you want to save the entire collection for later, you’ll find a collage image at the end of the post for pinning and sharing.
I especially think a homemade body scrub would be a great DIY gift idea for Mother’s Day, Teacher Appreciation Week, a bridal shower or a friend who could use a little pick-me-up!

Another option is to create a Stress-Be-Gone Spa in a Basket like Jamie at All That sRocks did. Jamie has a great printable shopping list with suggestions to stock the basket with goodies. She also shares her recipes for Vanilla Mint Body Scrub and Stress Away Bath Salt.
Homemade Body Scrub Recipes
Now that I’ve shared a few ways you could incorporate a homemade body scrub into a gift basket, let’s take a look at all the incredible homemade body scrub recipes I found. Almond, mint, citrus, pumpkin, gingerbread cookie, pomegranate, vanilla… the list of possibilities for making a homemade body scrub is endless. While most of the homemade body scrubs I found use sugar as the exfoliating agent, a few used salt and some even used coffee grounds.
