Springtime means that Mother’s Day is fast approaching, and this is one holiday you really can’t afford to slack on. You want to stay on Mom’s good side, don’t you?
Sometimes, moms are easy to shop for. If your dear mum has a growing collection of jewelry charms or a penchant for a particular fragrance, you might be tempted to fall in line and gift her something she already knows, loves, and has probably been receiving for years. Consider breaking out of the norm and spoiling mom with some new treats of the vegan variety instead. Whether your mom is vegan or not, she’s sure to appreciate a unique gift from an ethical company.

If your budget doesn’t allow you to lavish mom with purchased gifts, you know she’ll always love something handmade and from the heart. Perhaps your mom was the first person to tell you that, when life hands you lemons, you should make lemonade. As an ode to our mothers’ wisdom, I like to hand out small jars of homemade Lemon Sugar Hand and Lip Scrub on Mother’s Day. It’s quick and inexpensive to make, and works wonders on dry and chapped skin.
Lemon Sugar Hand and Lip Scrub
Yield: About 12 oz
2 1/2 cups sugar (make sure it’s vegan)
1 cup extra virgin olive oil or unrefined coconut oil (melted)
4 Tbsp lemon juice
- Stir all ingredients together in a large bowl.
- Scoop into clean, dry containers.
- Store in a cool, dark place or in the refrigerator.
That’s all! Mom is sure to love it, and you may even have enough leftover to pamper yourself a little, too.
