Mother’s Day DIY Salts & Scrubs

We are so thankful our sponsors at Sprouts Farmers Market let us test their epsom salts and create some fabulous Mother’s Day recipes!Mom Gifts

Looking for the perfect Mother’s Day gift? Something personalized, homemade, that promotes relaxation – Sprouts Epsom Salt makes the best foot scrubs and bath salts! Our sponsors at Sprouts Farmers Market are expanding across the Denver Metro Area and want to help make your Mother’s Day just a little bit more fun. Head over to Sprouts to pickup your groceries (yes – most locations let you order online and pickup!) and grab a package of their Sprouts Epsom Salts to craft the perfect gift to help mom relax – while you’re at it, mix up a few extras to indulge yourself in some much deserved pampering!

Whether you are making a gift for your own mom – or hoping to leave a hint for your partner and kids – we have a DIY guide to three different bath salts and a simple but cute way to present them! Want to get the kids involved? Have them help mix the scrubs and decorate the jars. You can spell out MOM with the three jars or add a bath pillow and candles to complete the presentation. Customize the foot scrub by adding marbles to the bottom of the jar to add an extra element to the experience. The scrubs and salts should last six months but the metal on the mason jars may begin to rust. Did you know you can swap out standard mason jar lids for a lid from a bottle of parmesan cheese and it will fit (and prevent any rust)?
