What Mom Really Wants


Mother’s Day is this Sunday (please tell me you already knew that).  Last week was one of the busiest, happiest, most hectic weeks of my life – more on that later this week.  So, maybe it’s just me, but I need a break.  And, really, what mother doesn’t?  Busy, tired moms just want a day to unplug and relax combined with a good night’s sleep. (And a sweet card.  And a thoughtful gift.)  Three favorites that I’ve recently ordered from The Detox Market would create the perfect end to any long day, so gift ’em up for Mom, or go ahead and pamper yourself.

Pursoma Digital Detox Bath:  I know it seems crazy to pay $32 for a bath, but this is no ordinary bath.  Pursoma’s bath mixes are incredible; I’ve tried most of them and they truly deliver.  Everyone could use a digital detox; aren’t you staring at a screen right this very second?  French Grey Sea Salt is hand- harvested from the ancient salt beds of Brittany aids circulation and relieves muscle tension.  Montmorillonite clay from the ancient volcanic peaks situated in the Haute-Loire region assists in attracting unhealthy, positively charged radiation that accumulates in the body through use of cell phones, laptops and electronic devices.  This bath helps me wind down and I wake up feeling lighter and more well-rested than usual.  Cost: $32 for one bath mix.

I recently blogged about the other two products here.

Lotus Wei Quiet Mind Serum: The name says it all; this aromatherapy serum cuts through all the mental chatter and lulls me to sleep every time.  I get in bed and pump a little onto my wrists and palms and rub my hands together.  Then, I cup my hands over my nose and breathe deeply for a few minutes.  It just works.  Cost: $50 for 50ml.

Moon Juice Good Night Dust: Be prepared for some amazing REM action.  Wildcrafted herbs promote natural melatonin release to create a gentle, safe sleep aid.  I always sleep so deeply when I take this little nightcap before bed.  Just mix a teaspoon into hot or cold water.  Cost: $55 for about 50 servings.

Happy gifting and relaxing 🙂
