Normally I would make my mom some sugar scrub. She loves it & helps keep her feeling soft. Unfortunately with the chemotherapy- it makes her skin super sensitive & anything abrasive just isn’t good for her right now. So I did the next best thing- bath salts. She loves to soak her feet. It’s one of the things that the kids have grown to love about our time when we are able to visit her. Each night they all sit around the tub & fill it with all sorts of great smelling salts & bubbles & talk about all the fun they had that day. It’s something they just love to do together & it’s also a fond memory that they will always have.
So because of that I made her these coffee infused bath salts. They smell HEAVENLY if you are a coffee fanatic like I am.
Even if you are not a coffee drinker- I know many that just like the smell. So you will love this too.
1 Cup Rock Salt
1 Cup Epsom Salt
1/2 Cup Baking Soda
1/4 Cup Ground Oats (I just pulsed mine in a blender)
1/4 tsp Coffee Extract
Combine all in a medium sized bowl- mix & stir with wooden spoon until well incorporated & the color of the extract is no longer in clumps.
Transfer to decorative jar. Print gift tag & tie on jar.
Simple & easy gift that will be appreciated with each use.
I also made a free printable for you to download to go along with your gift.
I made them large so that you could scale them down to whatever size jar you are using.
I also found some other fabulous homemade gifts that others have made that I thought you would really enjoy.
They are so creative & definitely something mom would enjoy!
Visit them all & get creative. Mom will be so happy!

Oh wow! I bet this smells great! Nothing better than coffee smells. What a lovely gift for a special mom! I’ll be back tomorrow to link! I cants believe I had time to make something! 🙂
These are great! I’m hosting a new linky party at http://hickorytrailblog.blogspot.com/2013/05/efforts-and-assets-linky-party-1.html
I would love to have you!
These are some great ideas! I’m not a coffee person, but I bet you could substitute another extract for the coffee extract, yes? Like almond. Mmmmmm. I love almond. 🙂 Too bad I have no time to be creative this week!

i’m not sure if my mom would actually sit to soak her feet, but i certainly want to make this for me!! i love bath salts! thanks for posting and the tags are adorable.
How much do you add to the bath water? Or did I miss seeing the amount in the recipe? I plan on trying this. Thanks!
Wow that sounds amazing! I might make some bath salts as gifts for my co-worker at the end of the year!

Hummmm.. Maybe I should send my daughter here to your blog so she can make me some salt scrub.. What a great idea. I remember the first time I used salt scrub it was right after I shaved my legs.. Yes I am a true blonde.. I never made that mistake again.
I will have to try this out! I am new from southern charm! I would love for you to check out my blog and follow me! nicole
I don’t drink coffee, but make it every morning for my husband. The smell just says ‘home’ to me. Love your bath salt idea.
Thanks for the inspiration,
PS – Woud love to have you link this up to Saturday Sparks.
Thank you for featuring my DIY Tile Photo Coasters! I don’t know why I didn’t see this before, but thanks!
