Mother’s Day is sneaking up on us! Whether you're a new mom, a step mom, an aunt, or grandmother - YOU deserve to be celebrated on this special day. Like they say, it takes a village! Mother's Day always brings back priceless memories of crayon drawn cards and breakfast in bed from my two precious babies. Being a mom is my greatest joy!
Most of you are probably familiar with the overwhelming needs of raising babies. No amount of preparation can brace you for the lifelong journey of motherhood.
So in the spirit of celebrating the women who raised us, I’d like to show some “mommy love” and share a few tips to help you keep you emotional and mentally balanced while raising kiddos.
FIND SOME "ME" TIME
This is YOUR day. Find a little time to relax by yourself. A hot bubble bath is my favorite place to relax and rejuvenate. Some quiet time with calm music, and the soft, warm flicker of candlelight will create a spa-like atmosphere.
This weekend, I'll be lighting my Le Balm Fine Artisan Candle. Inspired by the cult favorite Radiant Cleansing Balm, notes of clove bud and cardamom transform any bathroom into a world-class spa. Center notes of bergamot, lavender, and oud wood will transport you into the peaceful, natural surroundings of a botanical garden. Then you’ll find yourself surrendering to the soothing, meditative undertones of eucalyptus and vetiver.
This is also the perfect time to apply a thick, even layer of the Clarifying Detox Mask. Masking is the epitome of luxury and self-care. Take 10-15 minutes to let the mask do its magic, like a magnet pulling out debris and impurities from deep within pores.
This at-home spa experience is a winner to create a peaceful, serene atmosphere. You’ll feel pampered, relaxed, and empowered.

Locking in moisture after a warm bath is essential for maintaining soft, supple skin. Still slightly damp skin is ideal for absorbing hydration.
After emerging from your soak, treat your clean, towel-dried skin with the Nourishing Body Lotion. Apply this restorative, highly-effective formula for a radiant glow. Botanical extracts, Swiss glacial water, and mango seed butter boost hydration and work especially well on rough, dry patches like elbows and knees. The soft, powdery scent almost reminds me of fresh clean laundry!

Between dishes and laundry and cleaning up messes, mom's hands start to feel a little beat up. The most simple, but greatly appreciated, gift for mom is a well deserved manicure!
Hydration is the key to keeping those cuticles looking sharp! By applying a small amount of Restorative Hand Cream throughout the day, you’ll replenish moisture to hands and cuticles with this silky-smooth formula. It is non-greasy nourishment for busy hands - and you’ll fall in love with its soft, calming scent of lavender and vanilla.
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY! Whatever you do on your special day, show yourself some love, and enjoy being pampered. You deserve it!
