Celebrate EVERY woman in our community by taking part in Mother’s Day with Purpose – an initiative to support and honor mothers by gifting them with a self-care item, sugar scrubs. Sugar scrubs will be donated to women’s shelters in our community.

Supplies Needed (to make 25 bottles):

  • 4 1/2 cups of white sugar
  • 4 1/2 cups of raw cane sugar
  • 2 1/4 cups of oil (olive oil, coconut oil, etc)
  • 4 1/4 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • a few drops of bottle of cinnamon essential oil (available at major retailers including Target and Whole Foods)
  • 25 4-ounce jars (Example of jars – or contact JVC)


  • Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl
  • You can change supplies based on how it feels – if it is too oily, add more sugar. If it is too dry, add more oil.
  • Scoop out mixture and put into jars
  • Add a note and tie to the jar, if you want. Messages can include – “thinking of you!” “enjoy!” “treat yourself!”
