5 Self-Care Essentials You (and your Mom) Need

A year of virtual living bringing you down? Us too. Sometimes finding the motivation to do the little things for ourselves can be tough.  As we get closer to summer and hopefully a slower pace, we’re reminding everyone to practice active self-care; from spending time outside, balancing nutrition and exercise, meditating, or whatever you do for your mind, body and spirit.  Who else needs this reminder? Mothers. Mother’s Day is coming up quick, so think about your mother figures and how you can show them some love for all they give to you.  Now let’s get into our skin care pairs for Mother’s Day!  Relax + Recharge Mother's Day Bundle This bath tea and candle bundle is perfect for the person who works (too) hard and gives more than they take. Let them take some time for themselves with a soothing, candle-lit bath. Tip: this bundle pairs PERFECTLY with a bottle of wine.  Comes with: Your choice of Matcha, Chrysanthemum, Rose or Lavender Bath tea by Nana x Livy Your choice of Original, Cinder, Flora or Recharge candle from Woodlot Spa Night Mother’s Day Bundle Treat Mom to a spa night at home.

A pump of body wash in the shower and a spritz of spray on the go! This is perfect if you or your mother figure are busy but still love the refreshing power of self-care.  Comes with: Eucalyptus Coco Body Wash Eucalyptus Mood Mist Bath Salts and Teas There is truly nothing that says self care like a soothing back. It’s good for the muscles and the soul, as far as we’re concerned.  We’ve got a collection of bath bombs and teas in our marketplace, so you’re sure to find mom’s favourite scent in one form or another.  Here’s a few to get you started:  Restore Rose + Resin Mineral Bath Soak by Kodo Collection Matcha Bath Tea by Nana + Livy Face Masks & Oils If you can do them together over FaceTime or in person, face masks are such a fun way to relax, soothe your skin and feel refreshed! They also go quite well with a bath or spa night.  We have a range of face masks from classic sheet masks to powder masks you can activate with water, honey or even yogurt depending on what you’re looking for.  If you’re looking for the full luxury experience, we recommend a face oil. Nothing feels fancier! Pair it with a roller or to end your nighttime routine for hydration and glowing skin.  Find our selection of face masks and oils here. Ultimately, this is a reminder that in increasingly weird times, we hope you're taking care of yourselves and the people you love.
