Have I told you all that I love making shower favors?  I love coming up with fun and practical shower favors so when my friend told me she was hosting a baby shower this weekend, I had to help her make them.

I’ve loved seeing all the homemade beauty products throughout blogland so I immediately told her we had to make body scrub.

After looking around at different recipes online, we actually ended up keeping it very simple.  There really are so many to choose from but we needed to keep it cheap and easy.

After mixing up a few sample batches using different ingredients, this is what we came up with:


  • 2 cups epson salt
  • 3 tablespoons baby oil
  • 8-10 drops of essential oil – We used tropical from Michaels and it smells so good!
  • Jars
  • Food coloring (optional)


  • Mix everything together in a bowl and fill the jars.  Quick and easy!!
  • We added blue food coloring because her friend is having a boy (I’m sure you guessed that).

We wanted a cute poem to go along with the body scrub that reminded the mother-to-be and guests to pamper themselves.  This is what I came up with:

We cut out the tags and placed them between the lid and metal screw band of the canning jars.  We also added simple direction labels to the bottom of the jars that said:
Tropical Body Scrub
To use:  Apply to wet skin.  Rub and rinse
Leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth!
We are so pleased with the way they turned out.  We’ve tested them out and they really work!!  My skin feels so soft and the tropical scent smells so good.

If you need a quick, easy and inexpensive shower favor and/or gift idea, you have to make this body scrub.  We got all of our supplies at Walmart and Michaels for less than $20.

  1. I love this idea! I believe I will give it a try but how did you make the labels to go on the jars? My daughter is having a baby boy and we are having a shower in 3 weeks so we need quick and easy and inexpensive especially since it’s Father’s Day weekend also!
