Need a gift for mom that’s super special and handmade? We got you!

There’s nothing more thoughtful than a gift made by hand, and we’ve rounded up some super simple, stylish, DIY ideas that are not only great for Mother’s Day, but can be given year-round.

We especially love that they are free of toxins and harmful ingredients – additions that are sadly often found in beauty and bath products.

French Green Clay Mask

This beautiful mask is made with French green clay, calendula, apple cider vinegar and our luxurious Rose Regenerative blend.

Rose Regenerative facial oil is an extremely potent, effective blend of rare essential oils formulated to refresh and support stressed, aging and dry skin. Rose Regenerative promotes longevity while stimulating circulation for a healthy glow and more youthful appearance.

Pair this mask with a couple beautiful hand towels and some chocolate in a nice basket and you have the perfect special little gift of luxury.


2 T. French Green Clay
2 ½ T. Apple Cider Vinegar
½ T. Calendula VPO
5 Drops of Rose Regenerative EO
Small Amber Jar

Instructions: Place all ingredients in a stainless-steel bowl. Blend until combined as a smooth paste. Add to a small amber jar and put in fridge until ready to use. (Can be left out of the refrigerator for about a day). To use, apply mask to face and let sit for 15-20 minutes. Remove with warm water and a washcloth.

Rose Lavender Bath Soak

Perfect for a relaxing bath after a long stressful day! We’ve paired up Lavender, Rose, and Orange with some Epsom salts for this simple soak. Lavender is a wonderful essential oil for promoting relaxation.

Rose Otto is among the most luxurious and precious of essential oils, requiring 50-60 million blossoms to make just one liter of oil. Its beautifully deep, earthy, floral scent is prized in perfumery and works as an emotional tonic, soothing distress and encouraging balance, perfect for a beautiful bath soak.

We added a little Orange essential oil to the mix because it pairs beautifully with Rose and Lavender and gives a bright, sweet, uplifting aroma.


2 C. Epsom Salts
15 drops of Lavender essential oil
10 drops of Rose essential oil
3 drops of Orange essential oil
Handful of dried rose petals (optional)
Handful of lavender flowers (optional)

Instructions: Place Epsom salts in a glass bowl. Add oils and mix until oils are well
distributed throughout the salts. Stir in your lavender flowers and
Rose petals. Store in a glass jar. For a luxurious bath, add 2-3 T. of the mixture to your tub.

Nighty Night Sleep Spray

With so many of us leading stressful lives that can impact our sleep, a little spritz of this spray on your pillow will have you off to slumber in no time.

For this spray, we’ve paired up some relaxation powerhouses. Lavender has been used for thousands of years and is perfect for calming the mind. Roman Chamomile has a calming & relaxing personality and is especially suited to promote emotional health. Last is Bergamot with its spicy-sweet citrus personality. This oil is pure joy, promoting relaxation while easing tension.

2 oz. Amber Glass Spray Bottle
30 Drops Lavender Essential Oil
5 Drops Roman Chamomile Essential Oil
10 drops Bergamot Essential Oil
Distilled Water

Instructions: Add all essential oils to bottle. Top with distilled water. Shake vigorously. Can be used as a pillow, linen or room spray.

We hope you enjoy this exciting line-up and your mom does, too! Happy Mother’s Day!

The transition from spring to winter can sometimes be difficult depending on where you live.

The harsh, cold temps and the gray days can have an effect on our mood, skin, and can sometimes give us a cold chill. That’s where the power of essential oils comes in. They can help lift our mood and, when paired with an extra virgin plant oil, can help restore moisture and life to the skin. Let’s take a closer look at some of our favorites. Orange Essential OilBright, citrusy, and sweet, orange essential oil has an uplifting aroma and is great for boosting your mood. It’s also great for diffusing to achieve restful sleep and deep relaxation. Lemongrass Essential OilLemongrass with its bright, spicy lemon scent is one of the best known essential oils. We love this one in the diffuser, especially paired with other citruses to help purify the air and encourage calm and relaxation. Ginger Essential OilDistilled from the rhizome of the perennial Ginger herb, this essential oil has a warm, fresh and zesty aroma. It’s great paired with an extra virgin plant oil for massaging onto the abdomen when experiencing digestive issues.To help make the seasonal transition a little easier, we’ve rounded up some simple recipes for warming the bones, increasing circulation, and uplifting our moods as we eagerly await the full swing of spring.
