DIY Dry Shampoo
Any busy mom needs dry shampoo in her arsenal. It really saves the day when washing your hair just cannot be squeezed into the schedule. This version for brunettes is made with cornstarch, cocoa, and baking soda. You probably have all that in your cupboard right now!
DIY Coffee Scrub for Smooth & Cellulite-Free Skin
There's something so rejuvenating about the smell of coffee—but this recipe isn't for your morning cup. Caffeine offers excellent benefits for the skin, such as skin tightening and improving circulation. Any mom would appreciate that.
Vanilla Latte Sugar Lip Scrub
Lip scrubs are another fantastic way to use coffee grounds. This vanilla latte sugar lip scrub smells amazing and can keep lips smooth all year round.
Silky Smooth Legs Sugar Scrub
Get those legs ready for pool season! In the summer, when you trade leggings for shorts and dresses, you want to put your best legs forward with silky smooth, moisturized skin. This scrub made with sugar, coconut oil, and lemon essential oil or citrus juice will help you do just that.
Vanilla Coconut Homemade Shaving Cream
Speaking of smooth legs, you don't want to go to all that trouble exfoliating only to use harsh shaving creams (or worse—soap!) to shave your legs. This moisturizing DIY shaving cream makes shaving so much easier, and it's made with only two simple ingredients.
Easy DIY Coconut Salt Scrub Craft
If salt scrubs are more your style, this 3-ingredient recipe is as simple as it gets. With coarse salt, coconut oil, and essential oils, you'll have a batch ready to go in no time flat.
DIY Bath Bombs For Kids (and Moms) in Five Easy Steps
You may have wanted to make your own bath bombs before only to find that you lack one crucial ingredient—citric acid. Lucky for you, there's no citric acid involved in this bath bomb recipe. You'll find all the ingredients in your kitchen or pantry. A nice, long bath with some amazing-smelling bath bombs is just what Mom needs on Mother's Day.
