It’s that time of year when we’re all thinking about how we can pamper that special woman in our lives. Mom, Mother, Mama, Grandma, Granny, Gigi … whatever your term of endearment, it’s time to show them some love.

And like most years, Mother’s Day falls near the end of the school year too, so we can’t forget to plan ahead and spoil the teachers who’ve poured into our children all year long. And what better way to celebrate the women who make such a big difference then by treating them to good-for-you products that will make them feel incredible, all free from the toxins that bog us down.

We’ll be focusing on the ladies here but if want to celebrate a male teacher or get a jump on Father’s Day, be sure to check out Oils For Dudes.

Bath Bombs & Body Butter, Oh My!

Relaxing in the tub just got better! Bath bombs are a fun and fizzy way to unwind. Utilizing two of the most calming essential oils, these bath bombs earn bonus points for being filled with nourishing ingredients and no unwanted additives. Lavender essential oil—renowned for its soothing and calming aroma—makes the Lavender Calming Bath Bomb perfect for unwinding after a long day, while the Stress Relaxing Bath Bomb is a special treat thanks to the inviting, vanilla-lime scent of Stress Away oil.

These natural bath bombs are made without colorants, synthetic preservatives, parabens, or animal-derived ingredients, making them some of the best bath bombs you can get your hands on! Instead of artificial ingredients and harsh chemicals, we’ve made these vegan bath bombs with a mineral-rich formula and skin-loving ingredients, such as coconut oil and sweet almond oil. That means they’re not only fun and relaxing—they also leave skin soft, smooth, and moisturized.

And what better way to deeply moisturize your skin post bath than with the scrumptious Coconut Lime Replenishing Body Butter! It features Lime essential oil and uses plant-based ingredients to deeply moisturize your skin with a non-greasy formula. This coconut oil body butter is fragranced with the natural scent of coconut oil and Lime oil that will transport you to the tropics without leaving your bathroom.

Made without parabens, petrochemicals, colorants, or animal-derived ingredients, this vegan body butter is filled with skin-loving ingredients. Using a deeply indulgent formula, this natural body butter nourishes and smooths skin with help from two fruit seed butters: mango and cupuacu butter. Mango butter includes emollients that help soften and soothe skin, while cupuacu butter contains fatty acids that help skin maintain a youthful appearance.

Beauty Bonanza with ART

If it’s one thing women are guilty of it is putting others’ needs before their own. That’s why it feels extra nice when we are gifted with something we might not normally buy for ourselves. It’s even better when that something helps skin glow, radiate that natural beauty and put our best face forward.

Young Living’s incredible ART line of creams, cleansers and serums brings beauty to a new level. There’s more ART to explore, but here are three indulgent products where the power-of-nature makes a face oh-so-happy.

ART Intensive Moisturizer ART® is a deep, ultra-hydrating lotion that recaptures the qualities of younger-looking skin by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and helping skin feel smoother and more pliable.

Made completely from naturally derived ingredients, ART Intensive Moisturizer nourishes the skin with ingredients such as pracaxi seed oil and blue bird hibiscus leaf extract to even skin tone and promote hydration. Five premium essential oils are included to create a light floral scent and luxurious experience that leaves your skin feeling soft, refreshed, and radiant.

The ART® Creme Masque is formulated to deeply moisturize skin using an exclusive blend of hyaluronic acid and pure essential oils. Other spa-quality botanicals are added to help tighten and restore the look of youthfulness to the skin. It is suitable for all skin types.

ART® Renewal Serum is an intricate blend of exotic orchid extract and essential oils that benefits the most delicate areas of the face. These premium ingredients are formulated to deeply nourish, hydrate, and help maintain a youthful appearance.

Pucker Up.

Did you know that most conventional lipsticks are laden with heavy metals and other toxic ingredients? Uhm, Yuck. It’s totally not okay that our special humans are exposing their sweet smoochers to this gunk daily. L’Briante to the rescue.

Young Living’s answer to a beautiful pucker free from toxins, L’Brianté™ lip gloss/essential oil scent duos are perfect for revealing your natural beauty on the go.   Yep! It’s more than beautiful lips, but L’Briante’s dual-sided tube comes with a surprise blend of essential oils to keep that lady smelling incredible all day long. And, there are three options!
Winter features a nude gloss and a sophisticated essential oil blend that includes Vetiver, Sandalwood, and Ylang Ylang. Summer features flirty pink gloss and a sweet essential oil blend that includes Tangerine and Patchouli. Amoressence features gloss with a rich red color and a romantic essential oil blend scent, including Jasmine and Vetiver.

Just say aaahhhhhhh.

I’m sure most moms and teachers (especially moms who are also teachers) can relate. Many days feel like a flurry of quasi-organized chaos that takes multi-tasking to a new level. Sometimes half the day can go by without taking a deep breath. Essential oils help calm the mind, rejuvenate the spirit and release that “mother”-load of stress. There are dozens and dozens of essential oils that aide in this process but fan favorites include the masterfully formulated blends of Joy, Sacred Mountain, Release and Surrender.

Joy is a beautiful medley of floral and citrus aromas that does just as the name implies and brings a joyful mood to every day. It contains the valuable Rose essential oil, whose sweet, rich fragrance is prized among all essential oilers.

Sacred Mountain is in my personal top 5 of oils I can’t live without. It’s a blend of sweet Ylang Ylang and woodsy/piney conifer oils that evokes the sense of sanctity found in nature and promotes feelings of strength, empowerment, grounding, and protection when diffused.

Release is a little bit earthy, a little bit citrusy and a lot of lovely. It is a blend with a relaxing aroma that facilitates the ability to let go of anger and frustration. It also promotes harmony and balance when diffused.

Surrender is a blend of Lavender, Black Spruce, Roman Chamomile, and other essential oils that provides aromas to help cast off inhibitions that may be controlling your life or limiting your potential.

Simply smelling these therapeutic grade pure essential oils, either by inhaling them directly or enjoying them via diffuser, can immediately uplift mood and promote a positive perspective for the day.

So many choices!

It’s true. But don’t delay, shop today. Mother’s Day and end of year teacher gifts are right around the corner. What better way to show your love and appreciation than by gifting goodness that improves the health and happiness of the ones you love?!?

A well-deserved cheers to all the moms AND teachers out there.
