Because of our beginnings, Mother’s Day holds a very special place in our hearts. Without the love of a mom, Goddess Garden wouldn’t be here today! Our founder Nova created her first products because her daughter’s skin reacted to the chemicals in conventional products. So she found a better way! If that doesn’t exemplify the unstoppable love of a caregiver, we don’t know what does.
Mother’s Day is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate that unconditional love and the strong, caring women in your life. It’s a small way to show appreciation for everything they’ve done and the positive impact they’ve had. And if you’re feeling stuck trying to find a gift capable of doing all that, we’re here to help!
In some ways, Mother’s Day sets a high bar. You want something that says a huge “thank you,” but also something she’ll actually use. It’s part grand gesture and part something-from-her-shopping-list. Being a mind-reader is hard, but if your mom is the type who tries to minimize her impact and use clean, eco-friendly products, we have some great ideas for how to pamper her this Mother’s Day!
DIY Gifts and Gestures for Mother’s Day
Simple yet thoughtful ways to make the amazing caregivers in your life feel loved and relaxed on their special day.
Renewing Essential Oil Bath Soak
What’s better than a nice bath on Mother’s Day? A bath with stress-relieving essential oils that smell like spring! We chose a blend that’s floral, relaxing and detoxifying, but feel free to customize if you know your mom’s favorite essential oils! Just steer clear of citrus oils, which can irritate the skin after prolonged exposure.
- 7 ounces of coconut oil
- 20 drops of essential oils. We used 8 drops of lavender, 6 drops of geranium and 6 drops of neroli
Pour the coconut oil (or use a different carrier oil, if you prefer) into an 8-ounce bottle and add the essential oils. Close tightly and gently shake. To use, mom can add one or two tablespoons to a full bath, step in carefully, since the oils can make the tub slippery, breathe deeply, relax and enjoy. Write instructions on a gift tag, make it fancy with some ribbon and gift away!
Softening Spring Sugar Scrub
The perfect recipe for feeling pampered? Body scrubs that make your skin feel fresh and irresistibly soft. Because turbinado sugar is quite coarse, this recipe is great for exfoliating away rough skin on feet, knees or elbows. If desired, use a finer granule like brown sugar for a face, lip or hand scrub. For this recipe, you will need:
- 3 cups of turbinado sugar
- 9 tbsp of sweet almond oil or another carrier oil
- 15 drops of essential oils. We used 5 drops of clary sage, 5 drops of basil and 5 drops of neroli
Add the sugar to a bowl and mix in the sweet almond oil one tablespoon at a time. Too much oil can dissolve the crystals, which you need to do the exfoliating! Add in the essential oils from the recipe, or customize with your mom’s favorite spring scent. Transfer to a nice jar, add a tag with directions and maybe a bow or ribbon for a polished finish.
Plant a Tree
This might not be your typical DIY gift, but hear us out! Instead of buying flowers this year, plant a tree in your mom’s yard in honor of Mother’s Day, either together or as a surprise. Flowers are beautiful, but they fade quickly, as if signaling the end of the holiday. Planting a tree allows you to give back to the environment and share a gift that symbolizes your undying appreciation and love. She’ll be able to watch it grow and, depending on what tree will thrive in your climate, enjoy its leaves, buds or fruits each year.
Clean Her Home with Clean Products
Want to help mom really relax on Mother’s Day? Surprise her by cleaning house! Invite her to put up her feet (or use her new Bath Soak or Sugar Scrub) while you neaten-up the nest. For an eco-friendly and people-friendly cleaner, mix 7 drops of grapefruit essential oil, 8 drops of lemon and 15 drops of lavender in 14 ounces of water. You can also include 2 ounces of white vinegar if you want extra cleaning power.
