Mother’s Day is about celebrating and pampering our Mums. It’s about acknowledging and appreciating how nurturing, caring, loving, empowering and resilient they really are and showing our true appreciation of them for always being there for us.
Spoiling and pampering is a must for Mum on Mother’s Day and gestures from the heart are all the more special because we give not only in monetary terms but we give of our time – something that we all seem to be a little short of these days.
We’ve put together 3 ideas that we’re sure you’re Mum will love.
The Ultimate Nurturing experience for Mum is the chance to indulge in a luxurious bath. By using carefully selected essential oils you can create a relaxing environment where Mum can revive and rejuvenate.
Pour a small amount of carrier oil in your palm (use Joboba or Almond oil) and add 3-6 drops of essential oil (or a combination of oils). Place your hand under the running tap as the bath fills. We love to use a combination of two or more of the following essential oils in the bath… Lavender, Bergamot, Clary Sage, Geranium, Rose, Ylang Ylang, Lime and Rosewood.
2.The Power of Flower Essences for Mum
Unfortunately Mums are often over-worked, over-committed and stressed. Flower essences are used all over the world, in many cultures, to help manage the emotional demands of everyday life.
If your Mum could do with some emotional support why not grab her a flower essence. The Australian Bushflower range has traditional drops, mists, and a range of skin care infused with Bushflower Essences – they are absolutely divine.
Or if Mum is really stressed – try Mammoth’s specially designed “StressBuster” Flower Essence. It contains the following Bach Flower Essences…
Oak for those who struggle on with their day to day duties although clearly exhausted
Elm for those who feel overwhelmed
Olive for those who are just exhausted both in body and mind
3. A Feast
My most favourite memories are always with people I love and generally involve a beautiful meal. Most Mums cook for their families every night so having a carefully prepared feast cooked especially for them would be the ultimate expression of love.
I am a great believer in food having its own energy and taking on the energy of those who prepare it. If a meal is prepared with love and care, then the food takes on some of that energy and when we eat it we get the benefits.
I personally believe ‘Creating the Magic of a Shared Table’ this Mother’s Day, is the Ultimate Gift.
Happy Mother’s Day Mum…
