Herbal Gifts for Mother's Day

L.HoltMothers Day is coming up. (It's Sunday, May 8th if you haven’t been paying attention.) My family has always tried to celebrate with a day dedicated to the garden (a great way to get kids involved with nature), but every mother wants something different. If you don’t already have that special day planned out, consider a few suggestions.


Sometimes the best gift is the chance to take a breath and let go of all the tension you carry around in the daily grind. If the mothers in your life take on more than their share of stress and worry, offer some homemade herbal lotion or massage oil and a chance to indulge, either together or as a private siesta. Take care of something you know has been bothering her or a task she’s been dreading to cross at least one thing off her to-do list.

• Marvelous Mint for Body, Bath and Hair
• Pamper Your Peds
• Herbal Facial Cream
• Calming Massage Oil
• Smooth Away Headaches Massage Oil
• Happy Feet Massage Oil 

An herbal arrangment is an aromatic version of a traditional Mother's Day bouquet.
