Mother's Day health and wellness gifts
By Carla Snuggs
Continuing on with Mother's Day Gift Guides, I've curated some of my favorite gifts for moms who are into health and self care. You’ll find gadgets that make life a little greener, a little easier and ease stress. These gifts are perfect for honoring women in your life who deserve to be celebrated and pampered.
Guru Nanda Aromatherapy Gifts
This is a great gift for moms who may be tardy to the aromatherapy party but still want to experience the many wellness benefits of this ancient practice. Mom will love a sampler set of Guru Nanda’s Top 6 Essential Oil blends that allows her to try a variety of formulas and pick her favorite. The deluxe, giftable set allows users to discover the different therapeutic benefits offered by each blend and find their favorites among them. Each of the six blends are made from 100% pure and natural, therapeutic grade oils sourced from the world’s top growers, across 6 continents. The sample set contains adorable 10ml. bottles of the following blends. The amber glass keeps out light and preserves the integrity of the delicate botanical essences inside. Also, a MUST, is the Guru Nanda Honeycomb Diffuser, which is a compact, easy to use, and one of the easiest ways to get started with aromatherapy. Honeycomb cycles through 7 different colors, providing a soothing, ambient light. It is also equipped with an automatic shut-off feature as well as overheating protection.
Etre Bien Self-Love Ritual Kit
The Rose Quartz Ritual Set is a compilation crafted to provide all the necessary tools for a loving self-care routine. Inspired by rose quartz crystals, which encourage self-love and the release of stress, this set includes our skin-softening Rose Quartz Body Elixir, soothing Rose Quartz Aromatherapy Essence, heart opening Rose Quartz Bath Potion and a beautiful heart-shaped Rose Quartz crystal. We recommend using this kit to craft your very own high vibe bath ritual to experience sweet and loving vibes. Includes: 1 x 1oz/30ml Rose Quartz Body Elixir, 1 x .34oz/10ml Rose Quartz Aromatherapy Essence, 1 x 2.25oz/63g Rose Quartz Bath Potion and 1 x Heart Shaped Rose Quartz Crystal. So often Moms become accustomed to putting the needs of their families above their own. However, now that self-care has permeated popular culture, it appears this loving practice is here to stay. You can't pour from an empty cup and moms know that when they take care of themselves, they're better able to take care of everyone else in their lives. This ritual kit is all about embracing self-love and taking the time to create a ritual with intention. The all-natural, cruelty-free, and vegan bath and body products are all infused with rose quartz crystals and all natural essential oils to create an immersive spa-like experience at home.

A perfect gift for mom, a wax warmer that will leave the house smelling fresh and homey all day long! Happy Wax is an all-natural soy wax company. They have an assortment of scents that come in cute shapes and an array of warmers with modern designs. Scents like grapefruit mangosteen are fresh and clean and perfect for Spring! Greener products are a must when you’re a mother, so gift her the scent that’s cleaner, lasts longer and is paraben and phthalate free! In other words, it’s healthy to breathe and healthy to make for our planet! It’s 100% biodegradable and is made from renewable resources from American grown soybeans.
Airfree Air Purifiers
One of the most overlooked answers for a unique Mother’s Day gift is an air purifier. Most standard air purifiers use filters which capture mold spores and cause mold growth on the filter causing more issues for allergy sufferers. Airfree is a new air purifier that sterilizes the air without the use of a filter and allows air to flow in and out while safely and effectively eliminating airborne allergens like pollen, dust mites, and mold. Airfree is the MOST TESTED purifier on the market. Airfree takes in our indoor air and uses high heat to destroy all airborne particles, allergens, mold spores, and microbiological antigens and returns it to the environment, providing you with clean, sterile air. I suggest the Tulip – the most beautiful air purifier out there – designed to resemble the tulip flower. Shop: Airfree.com
Show Mom how thoughtful you are with a subscription to Bite, the all-natural toothpaste tablet made with organic ingredients. Bite is a zero-waste company. They don’t use plastic in any of their products and their toothpaste tablets, called Bits, come in a reusable and recyclable glass jar that looks like something you would find in an old apothecary. The bits are made from sustainable sources and are also vegan friendly. Refills arrive in compostable packets. Bite Tablets are offered in two varieties: Mint and Mint Charcoal. You can also opt for The Duo and receive both varieties at once. Each variety is made from all-natural ingredients known to whiten teeth and they’re never tested on animals.
Earth Junky Reusable Produce Bags
Mom will love these reusable produce bags from Earth Junky. Did you realize that there IS an alternative to pulling plastic bags off of the roll in the produce department? They also happen to make an extremely thoughtful gift for around $20. The reusable product bags are a 7-piece set of multi-sized drawstring bags made from 100% ORGANIC COTTON and cotton mesh. There is also a bonus “swaddle sheet” which is a large square fabric which is used to gently swaddle your leafy greens and fresh breads, keeping them out of harms way of chemical-leeching plastic!
