Every mom knows that feeling, there’s so much to do and so much to give—it’s easy to slip into survival mode. We all know how important self-care is but it’s easy to forget in the hustle and bustle of everyday family life. This is your reminder, mama! The best gift you can give your family is your own happiness.
No matter how many kids you have, how old they are, whether you’re struggling with infertility or considering surrogacy or adoption; whether you’ve got a career or you’re a SAHM or somewhere in between; no matter where you live and with however many people, it’s crucial you take care of yourself.
We’ve rounded up four products that, while they’re perfect for little ones, can do double duty as some serious mama self-care. Make time for yourself in whatever way you can, whether it’s a nice soak in the bath or just a few minutes to really moisturize and care for your skin. We hope those little moments to yourself help you recharge and reenergize so you’re the best you can be, for your family AND for yourself! You’ve got this, Mama.
We know you pamper your little(s) all day long, so take a moment to pamper your own skin with this rich and silky smooth cream. With soothing shea butter, calming mint and other natural plant extracts your hands will be in heaven!
What mom wouldn’t love a vacation? The truth is, mamas need to grab any extra time for themselves that they can and that is more often than not a few minutes, rather than a few days for a trip or getaway. Running short on “me” time? Commit to taking five extra minutes in the shower. Just five minutes! Lather in this yummy and refreshing lemon conditioner, let it soak into your strands and allow yourself to take a quick, mental vacay.
Oils are an amazing way to nourish and soften skin. Our massage oil is perfect for baby but has all the same benefits for mama as well. We recommend taking a break from the bubbles (did we just say that?!) and giving yourself a luxurious, grown-up bath. Grab a book or a soothing beverage, fill up the tub, add a few drops of oil and let the lavender and rosehip goodness wash over you!
No time for a soak in the tub? We hear ya! Every mama wants to feel and smell fresh throughout their busy day. Add a few spritzes of freshening spray to your hair or clothing for a clean and yummy smell, while the essential oils sooth your mind and your skin.
