"Health is adding a level of intention to every area of your life"
- Miranda Anderson
Mother's day is a week away! Have you made plans to treat your Mom to something special? Whether you're planning a pedicure, a massage, or making her a special dessert, here are some great ideas to not only show Mom you care about her, but also about her health!
If you're planning on treating Mom to a manicure or pedicure, consider choosing a nail colour that not only makes her feel special, but is also kind to Mother Nature!
A great brand that I love is Pacifica. Pacifica's products are 100% vegan, cruelty free and are always free of petrochemcials, sulfates, mineral oil, parabens, phthalates, peanut oil and propylene glycol. You can find their products in most health foods stores or at well.ca/products/pacifica-7-free-nail-colour_94347.html
Simply choose your colour and bring it with you!
Why gift Mom with a regular massage when you can supercharge it! Consider gifting Mom a massage with a practitioner who is experienced & knowledgeable in the use of certified pure therapeutic grade essential oils. Essential oils not only smell amazing, but also offer many unique benefits when incorporated into a massage. This may include increasing relaxation, supporting the immune system, decrease pain and elevate mood. I exclusively use doTERRA's Essential Oils as I have found them to be superior to other oils. Many massage therapist's are now incorporating essential oils into their practice due to their array or benefits.
I'm personally certified in a light touch massage called the AromaTouch Technique, but if you're outside of my area, there's likely someone near your that is also certified to provide this wonderfully relaxing service.

When choosing a dessert, there's an endless list of options to choose from. Why not choose something that's not only delicious but also supports Mom's health & happiness!?!
Does your Mom like chocolate? Check out this amazing Chocolate Mousse recipe!
Or maybe she prefers a fruit crumble? Try this yummy Rhubarb & Ginger Crumble! (You can easily substitute out the rhubarb for your preferred fruit, and adjusting the sweetener as appropriate)
If you're feeling particularly creative and have some time to spare, consider this 'Chocolate Cauliflower Ice Cream Cake'! Mmmmm.....
I hope this gives you some ideas to help you celebrate the Mom(s) in your life. Whatever you choose to do, if it comes from a place of love, I'm certain they will feel pampered & special.
Take Care and Enjoy your week!
