Here at Appalachian Botanical Co, we work hard to make buying our lavender a worthwhile endeavor. We’ve spent countless hours thinking about and caring about getting body care, aromatherapy, culinary and home goods “just right” for our customers, because we want you to benefit from our labor......wait a minute......who else has literally labored and spends their days thinking about and caring about others? MOMS, that’s who!
May is just around the corner and Mother’s Day is calling (just like how you better all call your moms on Sunday, May 9). As laborers ourselves, we know how much work goes into finding a great gift. We also know that the perfect Mother’s Day gift keeps Mom in the center. Show how much you care about your mama by choosing a gift that focuses—for once—on them.
It seems obvious, but so many times, haven’t you been given a gift and thought “Who is this for? The gift-giver or me?” Especially if you live with small kiddos, Mother’s Day somehow misses the mark by revolving around the choices of others. While it’s undoubtedly awesome to watch your littles make you breakfast in bed or gift you with a #1 Mom mug (seriously, that is fun), you know you’re secretly wishing for Calgon to just take you away. But since most of us lack access to a private island, we think these gift sets prove to be a nice substitute. They hit the bullseye by pampering and delighting the senses, which any mom would appreciate.
For the mom who loves when you go all out: our Lavender Gift Set features some of our most popular body care and aromatherapy products—all custom formulated to hydrate, revitalize and refresh skin, and brighten spirits. The sachet serves as a special extra to tuck under a pillow or in a drawer to freshen linen and clothing with a wonderful lavender scent. All of the products are nestled in a decorative box with an outer clear wrap tied up with a satin bow.
For the lavender-uninitiated mom: we recommend our sample travel kit. This set leaves tired moms refreshed and calm. Each travel kit contains lavender mist, lavender hand sanitizer spray, organic lavender body cream, and a lavender sachet.
For the mom who love to get creative in the kitchen: we recommend the Lavender-Infused Honey Duo. This lovely pair of raw, gourmet honeys—each infused with lavender grown and hand-harvested from our apiary in Ashford, WV—make a very thoughtful culinary gift. The lavender-infused wildflower honey is locally sourced. Stir into tea or drizzle over fresh fruit for a fragrant, lightly floral treat. Our lavender-infused goldenrod honey has an exceptional sweetness. The infusion of lavender makes it perfect for teas and foods where a stronger floral note is desired.
ABCo realizes this May holiday is all about the moms while simultaneously acknowledging that many people are without their moms and/or miss them terribly. We get that. We really do. So whether you are celebrating a new mom or a “seasoned pro” mom—or if you are honoring the memory of your mom—we have something “just right” to acknowledge the occasion. It’s undeniable that there’s nothing quite like a mother’s love. ABCo wishes a day filled with relaxation and gratitude to everyone who celebrates this unique holiday. Let ABCo make it easy to pay tribute to the special women in your lives.
Happy Mother’s Day from Team Lavender!
Being a mother is not about what you gave up to have a child,
but what you gained from having one.
