Mommy – Get Ready To Bloom!

Mommy – Get Ready To Bloom!

There is no substitute for a mother’s love.  Some have been fortunate to have loving, supportive mothers.  Others lost their moms at a young age, some barely knew their moms or knew them not at all.

Mother’s Day, like many national holidays, can bring up a mixed bag of emotions.  As I wrestle with my mom’s latest illness, I realize the enormous love my mother has had for me and I for her, but I cannot discount the fact that mother/ daughter relationships can be fraught with complications.  In the end, love is the greatest healer.

We all need to be mothered in one way or another.  One way to heal the mothering energy is to nurture ourselves.  When we nurture ourselves, it’s easier to nurture others  from a pure place. We bathe those in need with unconditional love.  This is the behavior of a healthy, mother energy.  If you’ve had a mom who has impacted your life in a most positive way, I know you count your blessings daily.  For those who have not had that kind of love, I think of you, especially on this occasion and send you Light and Love.  And for those who have recently lost their Mothers, I feel your pain more now than ever…  Mother’s Day can be a great time to put together a memory shrine for your mom no matter when she made her transition.

We have two botanical offerings to help invoke that nurturing energy, our Spiritual Spritzer called Nurturing and our Sea Scape Perfume.  Both are made with real jasmine essential oil and elements from the sea to calm and heal, not just for this special occasion, but for all year round.  Yemanja, Auset, Mother Mary, Privhti we call on you!

Happy Mother’s Day To All!

      Roberta, That’s so funny because I would never imagine you a Sea Scape type. That means you love jasmine, an exquisitely beautiful and funky fragrance. You certainly can use it living in the dessert of Nevada. Enjoy!

      It’s because of women, sisters like you Jaki who lift others up, that inspire me. Everyday one this planet is a day on new terrain and trying to figure out how to best navigate this journey. Trying my best to reflect amazing women like yourself. Happy Mother’s Day.

        Also Jaki hearing from you has reminded me I left out the pain of all those mothers who have lost a child. Perhaps you’d be willing to write a blog post for Anu Essentials that addresses that aspect of motherhood. Hugs and kisses!
