What are you surprising the moms in your life with on May 12th?


  1. Can essential oil be added to the sugar scrub to give it diff scents?

  2. The link to the Eau Good Water Bottle seems to be the wrong one because it forwarded me to the Eco Tools brushes. You might want to fix that.

    Other than that, great suggestions! Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Hi Van,

    The broken link is fixed. Thanks for letting us know! And we’re glad you like the inspiration!

  4. We know individuals who have successfully used essential oils to personalize the sugar scrub. One tip, though, make sure to use a glass container because essential oils can compromise a plastic container.
