This Mothers Day you can give the Gift of Wellness for Mum and for Mother Earth by choosing Natural Medicine, Natural Beauty Products, Healthy Organic Gourmet meals and time outdoors with Mother Nature. The bounty that Mother Earth offers makes it easy to enjoy her special day. What more could a Healthy Mum want on Mothers Day
We should all work to reduce chemicals in the home and on the body. While we are not suggesting getting Mum natural cleaning products for Mothers Day, if you are stuck for gift ideas, she may really appreciate the prompt to overhaul some personal care products. What’s good for Mum is good for the environment. Our tip is to keep it simple and maybe skip the surprise element (or make sure you can refund or exchange) since the key word here is ‘personal’ it’s best to give Mum a choice!
Gifts that keep on giving
- A supply of luscious face wash or body wash that she’ll use everyday
- A high quality essential oil and oil diffuser – since a little goes a long way
- A plant for the home – just remember that part of the gift is to water it for her!
- A good book or e-book
- A selection of organic herbal teas
- A good quality blender or food processor to tackle all those healthy recipes that require them!
- Help Mum sleep like a baby
- A new pillow – look for something ergonomic
- A new sheet set – go for organic cotton
- A bath product to help her wind down in the cooler months – lavender is always a good choice
- Magnesium – read on!
Magnesium Magic for Mums
Mum might already be familiar with the magic of Magnesium. We consider it to be a top priority and ensure that we recommend the right type and dose to each individual, whether it be for energy, muscle relaxation, stress reduction or hormonal support.
In combination we can increase its effects dramatically and our prescription only range of Metagenics products offer a selection of Magnesium formulas that are tailored to different health needs. While they are strictly practitioner only and must be prescribed within an appointment Mum might know that it’s just the thing she is after (call it Mother’s Intuition).
Gifts we can vouch for – Livewell Gift Vouchers
A Wellness check can include a good chat about health and result in a simple supplement routine, helping to take out any guess work. If Mum is a Wellness Warrior (and a Wonder Woman!) why not send her our way to support her to continue to feel her best, with a little help from those magic minerals. Livewell Gift Vouchers can be applied to any consultation, treatment (including Acupuncture, Kinesiology, Bowen therapy and Massage) and prescribed supplements, so there’s plenty on offer to please her for Mothers Day
Mother’s little helper
What better way to treat Mum than to give her the day off cooking – why not write up a menu and let her select breakfast, lunch and dinner (and a healthy treat!) Give her a few choices a day or two before so you’ve got time to plan and prepare. If Mum is a fan of health food remember it doesn’t have to be boring. Let the healthy treat be the star – think fancy like chocolate avocado mousse, chocolate beetroot cake or a lemon dessert for something light and tangy. If you opt for giving her a new kitchen gadget perhaps do let Mum in the kitchen to take it for a test drive! Breakfast in bed, picnic for lunch, homemade 3 course dinner – a great way to help make the day special and easy to share!
Keep an eye out for any organic ingredients you can source – perhaps go for pantry items like olive oil or vinegar that Mum will keep using in weeks and months to come which will be a lovely reminder of her special day with special ingredients and very special people! Giving a little back to Mother Earth by buying organic is an extra touch. If you are stuck for recipe ideas head on over to our recipe page here
Sharing the present in moments – Grace her with your presence
Family meals are always a wonderful way to come together. Just make sure you don’t get close enough to cause her to spill her coffee while she has breakfast in bed! Enjoying time outdoors is also a favourite – simply cherishing what we like to do as often as possible but could always do more. A bike ride, a bush walk, trip to the beach or just having some time to relax and laugh – it doesn’t matter as long as it’s enjoyable and relaxing. Look through some photo albums or make new memories – create a quirky photo shoot and dress up for fun!
Mum’s the word
Mum might have a yoga class online that she’d love to do, so check in and see if she needs an hour to herself at her preferred time. She might also want to enjoy using any new beauty products so let her have a mini spa treatment on her own – perhaps while dinner is being prepared. A little quiet time is a lovely way to acknowledge her and for a busy Mum a little goes a long way. When it comes to time for herself, she knows that quality over quantity counts, so schedule it in on her special day. In fact, ask her if she would like to add something to her weekly schedule for the year ahead – encourage and support her to have a regular break that is productive like taking a class, pursuing a hobby or a catch up with friends or date night.
Healthy Mum, Healthy Family
Spoiling Mum comes with lots of benefits! Being thoughtful and health focused on the day of the year dedicated to her is a great way to show her that you recognise her efforts as a mega multitasker and Wellness Warrior. Sharing family values that centre around being eco-friendly and eco-conscious is a sentiment that is vital for everyones health and wellbeing and something to build on through gift giving, meal sharing and encouraging healthy behaviours. Sharing the love makes for those feel good vibrations so make the most of this Mother’s Day and do what comes naturally!
