It’s that time of year again where kids and husbands alike start inquiring on what they should get for that special “mom” in their life. Let’s face it. Sometimes our creativity supercedes knowing what mom could really use. Don’t get me wrong. Us moms love the homemade cards, flowers, and crafts. But in reality, there are a few little additions that most moms would love to have in their home.
Here are my top picks that you just can’t go wrong with.
#1 Dyson Cyclone V10 Cordless Stick Vacuum
There is no doubt about it. If you want to make your mom’s life a lot easier, than this gift is number one on the list. This vacuum can do it all. I have yet to find a job that this little guy has not performed well with. With it being cordless it doesn’t tackle huge jobs, but for the continuous sweeping and maintenance of housework/farm-work, it is a beast! It is light enough that the littles have no problem running it. With a few quick connections, it is now able to head outside for car clean up. You will not be disappointed.
#2 Breville Juice Fountain Plus
It’s hard to find the time for proper detoxing and enzymes therapies. This will be a gift that keeps on giving as your family learns the importance of letting the digestive system rest while still receiving powerful nutrients. This gift benefits everyone in the home.
#3 NurtiBullet Pro
Meal time is just seconds away. This powerful blender takes the prep work out of meal time. Your family will receive all the benefits of a powerhouse meal that can literally be made in minutes and with easy clean up. This is great for those warm summer evenings when you don’t want to heat up the kitchen. You should not be eating heavy meals in the evening anyway so WIN WIN! For those of you with NO creativity, it comes with an entire booklet of recipes.
#4 The Family Wellness Kit
I have talked with many moms late at night that are needing advise on how they can help loved ones that are feeling under the weather. Of course, this never replaces emergency care if needed. The Family Wellness Kit offers a combination of supplements, herbs, and homeopathics for a natural approach to family health and safety. Moms can keep this easy-to-use kit in their home medicine cabinet for natural, effective, and non-toxic solutions for their common household ailments.
#5 Jumbo Salad Spinner
As you can probably tell, raw fruits and veggies are very important for our holistic lifestyle. We have a salad usually every day. We raise a large garden and grow it all organically which means we occasionally do have some bugs. Washing our greens is so easy now with this salad spinner. We all know how washing produce is so important…we might as well make it as easy as we can.
#6 Organic Wool Dryer Balls
I know! This might not seem to be a very sentimental gift to give mom for Mother’s Day. However, it is something she will appreciate very much. Especially if it is paired with a couple of her favorite, therapeutic essential oils. Allowing mom to use dryer balls during laundry helps to cut down on the toxic endocrine distrupers that are invading our homes. PLUS, it saves so much money!
A few of my favorite esssential oils for laundry:
#7 Wine Filter and Aerator
NO more wine headaches! For those moms that like a glass of wine at the end of the day, this if a great gift. This filter removes the histamines and sulfate preservatives without compromising the taste of the wine. This product will filter out all types of wines including sparkling! One filter will purify an entire bottle of wine.
#8 Dry Brush Kit
Every mom needs some time to pamper themselves. A dry brush kit works well for those rare moments where mom can slip away to work on herself a bit. Dry brushing helps to open up two of the main elimination pathways of our body, the skin and lymph. Ten minutes of dry brushing before showers helps to ensure momma’s overall health and if you follow it up with a wonder herbal bath then you’ve created a spa-like environment…which we all need from time to time.
-Draw a very HOT bath.
-Put bath herbs in a large tea ball, cloth tea bath, cotton handkerchief, some tulle or a clean white cotton sock. You can toss the herbs straight into the bath, but you will be cleaning yourself and the tub after…who wants to do that?
-Steep herbs in bath water until it cools enough for you to get in without discomfort.
-Soak in the herb bath for about 15 to 20 minutes, breathing deeply so as to benefit from the aromatics.
-Many bathers choose to “seal” the herbals in by applying a thin layer of good skin oil (jojoba, almond, avocado, coconut) to damp skin, then drying gently.
A few of my favorite bath herbs are lavender, calendula, chamomile, peppermint, rosemary, eucalyptus, and Aloe Vera. I will use these for different reasons. Not all herbs carry the same actions.
*You need to know the actions of herbals before you start using them.
I hope you find a gift that is just perfect for that special mom in your life and as always, I am here for any questions or for any natural health concerns you have. Feel free to email me and don’t forget to follow me of FB, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest.
