Let me share with you my favourite gift ideas for mums.

“When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.”Sophia Loren

That’s right. You are never alone. Not even in the loo. Let’s be honest here – mums can be our biggest fans… and our toughest critics. They can melt our hearts… and drive us crazy!

You’ll find one of my ‘Mum, you’re driving me crazy’ stories below. Sometimes all we want is to be in our mother’s arms and other times we can’t get away from them fast enough.

Of course, the scary thing is that when we become mums ourselves, we discover the job isn’t nearly as simple or easy as we thought it might be.

I totally agree with writer, Jane Sellman, who said, “The phrase ‘working mother’ is redundant.” For most, being a mum is a 24/7 job, with little thanks and no time off for good behaviour!

Spoil Them With Natural Goodness

So, as we approach Mothers Day, it’s a great opportunity to think of our mums and be thankful for them. And if we can to spoil them a bit. And what better way to do that than to pamper them with the best, all natural products? Products that they’ll love, which are also good for them.

I’ve also included a DIY recipe below that you can make and give to your mum with love.

She Drives Me Crazy

Mums look after us, but sometimes it’s not easy to get our mothers to take care of themselves! My mum has been quite resistant to getting rid of some of the toxic chemicals in her body products. As a result she’s suffered with ‘unhappy skin’ for a long time.

Finally, after years of begging and pleading with her to try some of the natural Young Living products, Mum was complaining to her sister about her skin. Auntie Norma said, “It’s probably all those chemicals you’re using!”

Next thing, Mum’s on the phone to me asking, “Do you think that for Mother’s Day you could give me some of those natural body products?”

OMG Finally! Sometimes she drives me crazy, but I love her dearly. And thank goodness for Auntie Norma… and Young Living.
