Mother’s Day is almost here, so let’s take a moment to be thankful for the incredible women who have nourished us, watched us grow, called us out on our mistakes, wiped our tears, bandaged our knees, and answered the phone again and again.
There are many ways to be nurtured and mothered, so let’s also thank those who may not be our biological mothers but have stepped up to the plate when we’ve needed them– grandmothers, step-mothers, or even a friend’s mom.
And on Mother’s Day, of course we can’t forget about Mother Earth, who supports and nourishes us most of all.
Check out our Mother’s Day Gift Guide for a little something to show your appreciation, no matter what type of mother she is!
Mama to Be
For the expectant mother, Mama to Be Tea from Homestead Apothecary nourishes and supports a healthy pregnancy with a mix of Spearmint, Nettle, Dandelion, Raspberry leaf, Oatstraw, Alfalfa, Rosehips, Ginger, & Lemon Peel.

Give yourself and Mother Earth a gift this spring with Seed Bombs. Say a little thank you note and spread flowers to bare spots of the earth! Throw them into neglected roundabouts, flower beds, and planters.
Or, light Tamed Wild Apothecary’s beautiful Mother Earth candle and meditate on Gaia: the goddess of all goddesses, the ancestral mother of life.
