‘Mother your Mother’
Mother’s Day is a perfect time to pamper Mum, yourself or a friend – you could get together and host a ‘Pamper Party’, or simply spoil mum and give thanks without it costing you a visit to an expensive spa – create your own surprise home spa and have fun making your own natural beauty products!
Whilst you are preparing your ‘Home Spa’, make mum a cup of herbal tea such as camomile or rose to help her unwind and soothe her nerves and don’t forget to light a few Allumi T Lights to set the scene – the fragrance oils of our Purity collection are a perfect combination to help uplift and balance her hormones! Mums are busy ladies, and I bet she has many bottles of body oils and lotions she has never had the time to use! – we put others first and forget to pamper ourselves, so whilst the Cleansing Scrub is working it’s magic, treat mum to a hand or foot massage, or perhaps both! Make it extra special by adding a drop of lavender essential oil as it is extremely healing in so many ways!
Lavender soothes the soul, restores the nervous system and the fragrance is so relaxing she will immediately unwind! Massage the feet and hands and I promise you this will be among the most memorable of mother’s days. It will be more beneficial because you are doing it! Think of all the times over the years that your Mother has pampered you. Let’s Mother her this Mother’s Day. Enjoy giving your gift of time and ‘Mother your Mother’ this March!

Here’s 2 great quick and easy recipes for you to try!
Scalp Cleansing Scrub
Our hair gets overladen with commercial products so this exfoliating treatment will really help to stimulate and cleanse the scalp. It’s a simple combination of sea salt, olive oil and lemon juice and makes a gorgeous ‘One use only treatment’. This blend can’t be stored so be sure to make it on the day of use!
1. In a clean bowl mix together ¼ cup of fine Sea Salt, Juice of ½ a lemon and 1 teaspoon of Olive Oil.
2. Apply to the scalp and gently massage in before washing and conditioning as usual.
Any leftover scrub can be massaged into the hands and rinsed off before drying for super soft hands.
Persian Face Mask
This hand blended face mask is used by the Princess of Persia and will complete your home spa treatment giving mum a rejuvenating experience leaving her skin silky smooth. This is so quick and easy to make!
1. In a clean bowl mix one egg yolk with 1 teaspoon of clear honey and one teaspoon of olive oil.
2. With clean hands, or a very soft therapist brush apply to a cleansed face and leave for approximately 10 minutes.
3. Remove with a warm face cloth.
A vegan version can be made with soya or coconut yogurt, olive oil and honey.
