Super Easy Handmade Gifts For Mother's Day

Mother's Day is coming sooner than we realize. It's less than a month away. Here are two really simple items that you can make for mom on her special day. Because we all know that homemade screams love.

Lavender Bath Bombs

Bath Bombs are super easy to make and they are fairly inexpensive. And they are something that gives mom a little taste of luxury that she deserves.

Here's What You Need

1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup citric acid
1/2 cup Epson Salts
1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil
1 Tablespoon Lavender Essential Oil
5 drops blue food coloring
5 drops red food coloring
1/2 cup lavender petals

Here's What You Do

Mix all of the dry ingredients thoroughly. Then mix your wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Then slowly mix in the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients. If it begins to fizz a little stop pouring in liquid and mix more quickly. When all of the items are mixed thoroughly. Press the mixture firmly into a mold. I used plastic Easter eggs. They are inexpensive this time of year. Allow them to dry for about 15 minutes and then remove them from the mold.

Rosemary Orange Honey

This one is for those mom's who love baking and cooking. This is a super tasting gift that she will love.

Here's What You Need

1 quart light colored honey
1 Tablespoon chopped rosemary
1 Tablespoon orange zest

Here's What You Do

Put your items in a pan, and heat it on a low heat for about 20 minutes. Don't let the heat get too high or you will burn the honey. When the honey has cooked pour it back into a bottle. Store the item in a cool dark place.
