Mom , Mother , Mommy....Happy Mothers Day, and to all women who are stand in Moms, caregivers and nurturers on every level, who continually put themselves second and never get the thanks they so rightly deserve, we Thank You for your never-ending selflessness .
Being a Mom can be a tough emotional journey that women persevere through, doing the best that we can. So it is very nice that once a year (at least) we take the time to acknowledge all that Moms do for us! Which should include our Mother Earth! Sometimes, I feel that she speaks out to us about how poorly we have misbehaved, in regards to our beautiful planet, that she shakes us to the core (quakes), cries in abundance (floods), or frowns at us (with scorching heat and droughts). To remind us that we are severely, out of alignment with what she has given us.
So this Mothers Day lets make EVERY Mother happy and show our Moms how deeply and truly we appreciate them, by giving mindful, well thought-out gifts of Natural and Organic products. Dedicate some time from a busy schedule, to make a hand made gift or create a gift basket that promotes natural well-being and a healthy lifestyle, these gifts truly exude love and gratitude.
I read an article recently on the website VICE.com that uncovered the debilitating life of (mostly) women, who work the flower plantations of Columbia. These moms are not on the joyful receiving end of the flower market, but actually the complete opposite. They work long hours for little pay and suffer physiological damage from pesticides and herbicides that go unregulated in Columbia. While flowers are beautiful and a top "go-to" gift for Mothers day, try putting a bit more effort forth and find a "local" grower to make your beloved Mom a bouquet. You help a local merchant and these blooms will be fresh and hopefully pesticide free for your Mom to enjoy! Above all, spend some sincere quality time with your Mom, go on a walk or hike with her, fix her a meal and do ALL the clean-up. Spend this one day out of the year truly dedicated to her!
Bake!...Yes, I said make something with your own two little or big hands! Nothing says more to a Mom than actually going through the sometimes "torturous" effort of making something all by yourself! Trust me it doesn't need to be Julia Child perfect...just make it , don't buy it. If your Mom loves, bottled "smellies" skip the toxic synthetic colognes, unless you can afford the real deal of perfume (avg $100+ a 1 oz. bottle ), give her an array of organic essential oils, such as the Veriditas line, carried here at Organic Living. We have several perfume oils very reasonably priced and you can start her a collection to include natural remedies, plus you can add an oil diffuser, which allows her to permeate her home with sumptuous scents any day of the week. All Veriditas oils are 20% off for the month of May! Timing is everything!
Every Mom would love a little indulgence. Moms are the first ones to put themselves at the bottom of the list to buy something special for, so help her remember she is also a special "girl" as well as a special "Mom" and gift her with some wonderful and healthy organic body products. Organic Living carries top of the line organic merchandise that includes luscious body products for her skin and hair. You can include organic pajamas and a robe or treat her to soft and beautiful (pesticide-free) organic sheets, comforters and towels.
We have many products for EVERY price range that shows both your Moms, (earth mama included) just how much they have nourished, nurtured and tolerated us throughout our lives. We welcome you to stop in Organic Living and let us help you make this Mothers Day a memorable celebration honoring every Mom.
