Contrary to popular belief, Mother’s Day was not conceived by Hallmark. The ancient Romans and Greeks praised the Great Mother of Gods. Here in the United States, Mother’s Day started nearly 150 years ago, when Anna Jarvis, an Appalachian homemaker, organized a day to raise awareness of poor health conditions in her community — a cause she believed would be best advocated by mothers. She called it “Mother’s Work Day.”
We love our moms. They accomplish more in a day than most of us do in a whole week, all while smelling like roses and honeycombs. Their voices humble us in seconds, and their hugs contain a potent energy that forever warms the soul.
This year we’ve made it a little easier to show your appreciation with a list of five awesome Mother’s Day gifts that are good for health and habitat. We’ll even wrap your gift in eco-friendly packaging with a personalized note of your choice, lovingly printed on the wings of angels. Or maybe just nice recycled paper, angels are hard to catch.
Big Dipper Wax Works Beeswax Sphere Candle: Created by in-house artisans, these intricately sculpted candles are eco-friendly and safe to burn. Most candles are made with paraffin, a petroleum by-product that’s neither natural nor safe! In contrast, this beautiful 100 percent pure beeswax candle will keep your lungs clean while burning for over 50 hours. We only have a few left since the model was discontinued, and we’re offering them for a very sweet deal!
Virgin Raw Bee Panacea: This tasty treasure combines well-studied beneficial bee products (raw honey, pollen, propolis, royal jelly), with select algae, herbs, botanicals, probiotics, and other ingredients to form one of the most nutritious superfoods available. Two sisters make this small wonder with planet in mind, using glass containers, locally sourced ingredients, and made-in-the-USA pride.
PurO3 Beauty Set (20 Percent Off): Activated oxygen, also known as ozone, is created by taking pure oxygen and electrically charging it. Puro3’s organic ozonated oils are saturated with so much oxygen and ozone that when you open the lid, it smells like a lightning bolt just went off nearby! The oils, which are all organic, breathe new life right into skin’s cells. To help the planet and maintain the highest level of purity, all of PurO3’s oils are made in the USA and packaged using glass containers. This is an amazing product offered at 20 percent off for limited time only.
EcoLunchbox Three-In-One: Ready to make plastic baggies a thing of the past? It’s time to say goodbye to leachy plastic food containers and give EcoLunchboxes three-in-one stainless steel bento box a try! This nifty BPA-free lunchbox is great for packing on-the-go lunches, which typically contains three items: a sandwich and two side dishes.
Chocolatl Chocoholic Combo: For years we’ve been giving moms chocolate filled with sugar and milk. But real raw cacao is surprisingly good for health, especially for the heart. Probably the most influential love compound in chocolate is PEA, phenethylamine. This chemical activates dopamine, a neurochemical directly associated with sexual arousal and pleasure. So bring the feeling of love into your mom’s bloodstream with Chocolatl. This combo features a jar of Chocolate-Maca Sauce and three varieties of raw, fair-trade chocolates (one box of Cordyceps-Maca, a box of Mystic Mint, and one Goji-Maca).
