Every year, we try to find something to make the moms in our lives feel extra special. Mothers do so much for us. We are not just talking about our personal mamas. We are talking about ALL the women in our lives that help us every single day. Thank goodness for the mom down the street that picks up our kids when we are running late. Thank heavens for the mom that drops off meds when we are too sick to go to the store. Bless the mom that brings us wine when we are losing our minds. Thank you, thank you, thank you to the mom that reminds us to take care of ourselves.

Every mom on this planet has come to a moment where self-care needs to be first on the list of things to do. However, sometimes the power of a mother's unconditional love is so overwhelming that we forget that we need to love ourselves too.

My friend Natascha and I were talking the other day about how moms, including us, need to take care of ourselves. She is a firm believer in holistic care or caring for the body as well as the emotional side of one's being.

And women alive! Being a mom requires the need for lots emotional support and well-being.

That's why Natascha is an advocate for using essential oils. She feels they are effective, accessible, easy to use, affordable and most importantly help support emotions so our bodies can work at optimal levels. Stress can wreak havoc on our bodies and manifest itself in many ways including aches, pains, eczema, foggy thinking, sluggish movement, depression, tiredness, and sleepless nights.

Natascha invited me to test out some of the dōTERRA oils she recommends. It was a lovely few hours experimenting and learning. Some oils may help calm and energize. Some oils may help to purify and clarify. Some oils may help to clear breathing and support digestion. It was interesting to hear how each of the oils could offer a level of support in some way and how she uses these oils to create something important in her life.

Natascha gifted us this lovely Morning Mama Body Scrub recipe. This DIY scrub makes the skin feel amazing. More importantly, it will make any mom create a moment to pause and take care of herself. This recipe smells lovely, is easy to make and is a simple DIY gift for Mother's Day and beyond.

Morning Mama! Body Scrub*

*Sensitivity to the scrub or an allergic reaction could occur. Discontinue use if a reaction occurs. Remember to use caution and care when bathing or showering with any scrub.

Step 1: Place sugar and coconut oil in a bowl and combine. Add the Vitamin E Oil and the dōTERRA oils and stir well.

Step 2: Add the scrub to the jar and decorate with the tag and ribbon. There will be plenty of essential oil to make many more jars of body scrub. 

Thanks to Natascha, this delightful scrub offers any mom a moment of self-care for her body, mind, and spirit. If you would like to learn more about essential oils contact Natascha here:
