Can you guess what mom’s REALLY want for Mother’s Day? Let me give you a hint: it’s not jewelry, it’s not flowers or chocolates. According to Parents Magazine, the top two on the list are #1 SLEEP and #2 Time to Herself.
It’s no surprise that moms are stressed out and exhausted. This year in particular, has been full of the typical duties that moms take on PLUS homeschool, lockdown, and so much added stress that comes with a pandemic. This is an important Mother’s Day to go the extra mile and help mom fully relax and take care of herself.
More and more moms are turning to a new way to relax - CBD. Recent studies show that CBD use is way up, especially in women, and in a High Times study, the majority of women are adults, educated, healthy and self-sufficient. CBD is quickly becoming the preferred way to take the edge off without the adverse effects of alcohol. That’s right, Good-Bye Wine, HELLO CBD! Also, goodbye to the extra calories, dehydration, and (sometimes) hangovers that come with Wine Night.
Chances are if you ask a friend, she has tried CBD gummies. Have YOU? They are quickly becoming a fave go-to for chilling out during the day. You can slip a tin of Aqueous Wellness CBD Gummies in your purse and take a gummy or two during the day. Enjoy subtle relaxation and still feel on top of #momlife. Remember, there’s no “high,” so it’s a perfectly safe anti-stressor. Women especially favor them as a natural sleep aid before bedtime.
Another GREAT way to surprise mom with a treat, but without the high price of spa time: make sure mom gets some just-for-her bathtime. Draw a bath, add some Aqueous Wellness Bath Boosters to the water. Light some candles, maybe ask “Alexa” to play some of her favorite songs. Oh, and very importantly, keep the kids busy and far from the bath haven you have created.
Not only will the bath surprise be ultra-relaxing, but the Bath Booster, with spectrum nano hemp oil extract, is infused with lavender and rose botanicals. It’s the perfect combo of high-quality, robust CBD and natural aromatherapy. Not only will it bring anxiety levels down, but it will aid in recovery from physical activity. And can you imagine NOT having a good night’s sleep after a bath like that?
Now that mom is relaxed and happy, time to get mom’s skin to GLOW. Natural pain relief CBD is the hero of anti-inflammatory, and anti-inflammatory also transfers to skincare. CBD is excellent for calming irritation or redness or even plumping up tired skin (which moms have, right?). The problem is, mom doesn’t always have time for self-care. That’s where Aqueous Skincrush comes in. It’s a full-spectrum nano hemp extract water-soluble body spray that you can spray all day! Infused with lavender and rose essential oils, it not only is at a relaxing aromatherapeutic experience but incredibly hydrating, leaving skin smooth and the appearance of lines and wrinkles minimized. What more can you ask for in a daily spritz?
Don’t hesitate to introduce CBD to the special women in your life this Mother’s Day. They make great gifts for moms, your friends, even YOURSELF. Just like they say on an airplane, put your lifejacket on first! Let CBD be a part of your daily wellness ritual. A more calm and stress-free life is good for you - and your family.
Of course, this is always the new year buzz, especially coming out of a year like 2020; chances are more bad habits have been made. Many of us got into new cycles that we’d like to break, change, or amend. Wine-to-wind-down more often than usual? Check. Netlfix on the couch more often than not? Yep, that too.
