The Ultimate Nitty Gritty Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Devon No Comments

What does the herbal mama want for Mother’s Day? All the goodies from Mountain Rose Herbs, of course! Tea, creams, books, and seeds all for the special mama.

This is a sponsored post. This means I received product and/or monetary compensation from the company or organization mentioned in this post. This helps to support my blogging efforts and my family. I only partner with brands that I value and respect, and all thoughts and opinions share herein are my own.

As a holistic, herbalist blogger my niche is, well, specific.  My audience is full of the salt of the earth mamas. All kinds of mamas – not just the mamas to tiny humans.  Furthermore, I would hazard a fair guess to say that my lady readers out there are hard-working, nitty gritty types that rarely, if ever, spoil themselves.

Which is why when Mountain Rose Herbs asked me to partner with them to create the ultimate nitty gritty Mother’s Day gift guide, I said “YES”!!!

Selecting the right gifts for those of us practical, herbal types can be difficult.  What do you buy a woman that spends more time studying plant identification, gardening, and blending teas than paying attention to the newest trends in handbags and footwear?  Mountain Rose Herbs actually makes it incredibly easy with their wide selection of herbs, essential oils, teas, and other holistically minded products.

So, what does the herbal mama really want for Mother’s Day?  Here is my nitty gritty ultimate Mother’s Day gift guide!

Nitty Gritty Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Classic Glass Teapot & Flowering Tea Sampler Set:  Sometimes it seems a shame to shutter your gorgeous tea behind a ceramic pot – and doubly so when you have “blossoming” tea to admire. This classic teapot is a timeless shape.  It is also fitted with a glass infusing cup for easy cleanup and clear tea.  The flowering tea collection is composed of eight “tea balls” in four flavors.  As the balled tea soaks up warm water, the ball unfurls to reveal a beautiful blossom.  Indulgent, aesthetic tea.

Rose Hydrosol:  Call me old fashioned (I wear that badge with honor), but I love the scent of roses.  It’s impractical to carry a bouquet of fresh cut roses around all day and rose essential oil is frustratingly expensive.  Rose hydrosol is the perfect solution.  The aqueous by-product of essential oil distillation, hydrosols are heavenly scented waters with a myriad of uses.  Wear rose hydrosol as your perfume, use in homemade creams and lotions, or spritz onto your linens for an aromatic experience.

Lavender Cream: Even this dedicated DIYer loves to be spoiled with occasional ready-made lotion or potion.  This lavender cream is a lightweight, yet exceptionally hydrating cream, perfumed with the ever lovely lavender.  Just what a mama needs to keep her skin calm, happy, and help her surrender to some much-deserved rest.

Strictly Medicinal Seeds:  Mother’s Day is perfectly coordinated with the planting season.  While I am usually filling my seed trays with garden veggies, this year I will be adding more medicinal herbs to my beds with Strictly Medicinal Seeds.  In partnership with MRH, Strictly Medicinal Seeds offers a wide selection of treasured herb seeds from astragalus to zaatar.

A good herbal tome:  Sometimes my husband asks me if I really need another herb book.  Silly man, of course, I do – and so does your herbal mama!  I am absolutely in love with Dina Falconi’s Foraging & Feasting: A Field Guide and Wildfood Cookbook.  Filled with pages of excellent wildcrafting advice, 50 glorious and detailed botanical illustrations, and dozens of wild food recipes, this is the book to peruse while sipping your flowering tea and enjoying breakfast in bed.
