Indie Holiday: Zoe Organics Mama’s Ritual

zoe-organics-mamaritual-pin

As wonderful as the holiday season is, it can be a stressful and sometimes difficult time for many of us. The family gatherings, holiday parties, traveling chaos—uff dah. It’s a lot. Taking a few moments each day to unwind is so important, especially during times of stress. As a mother who has struggled with anxiety both pre- and postpartum, I admit that it’s hard finding a balance between being a total giver to my family and also carving out a few precious moments to myself.  I am so happy to have discovered The Mama’s Ritual collection from Zoe Organics which was created support, uplift and nurture wellbeing. These products have become staples in my household, and I know you’ll love them, too.

The Mama’s Ritual collection is packaged as a gift set ($86) but you can also purchase products individually; they’d all make beautiful gifts on their own! The Aromatherapy Oil ($26) is a purse-friendly rollerball that instantly calms with essential oils of organic lavender, bergamot, chamomile, petitgrain and sandalwood. The notes are familiar and soothing, but also rich and warm. It’s the perfect pick-me-up to pack in your purse, although mine faithfully dwells on my nightstand as a part of my bedtime routine. I dab a little on my wrist and temples, breathe deeply and prepare for a restful sleep.  If I need a little more pampering, a hot bath with the Mama’s Ritual Bath Soak ($34) becomes a great cure-all after a hectic day. The epsom salts soothe tired, sore muscles, while the signature oil blend helps to whisk your cares away. Zoe Organics suggests drinking a large glass of water after soaking in these bath salts, and I agree—you will feel refreshed and hydrated! Second to a hot bath, there is nothing more soothing than the glow of a candle. Made with the Mama’s Ritual oil blend and organic beeswax, this candle imparts relaxation and fills the room with it’s comforting scent. When I’ve had a stressful day or am feeling particularly overwhelmed, I light this candle to help me focus and slow down.

Mama’s Ritual products are handmade and certified organic. Please note that while the bath salts are not for pregnant women, Zoe Organics has a great selection of products for the mama-to-be!
