As a mom myself, I can vouch for the fact that we are always running around and taking care of everyone else. It’s quite literally go, go, go from morning to night. You know what though? That’s fine because the truth is that we love it. I truly enjoy caring for my family. It gives me joy. That being said, moms also need to make time for themselves. Everyone needs a little R&R – a little me time. This Mother’s Day, show the moms in your life how much you enjoy caring for THEM by giving her a pampering gift. I love to whip up batches of bath salts right in my kitchen. It’s such an easy and quick gift to make, but the best part is that these bath salts are divine. They are the perfect aromatherapy with the mix of natural lavender and citrus scents. The combination of the various salts help to soothe tired muscles and leave the skin soft.
