Mothers Day Give Away

Yes we are having another give away ;-) . I normally try to only have one per month but with it being Momma Mary's month and mothers day I really wanted to offer something nice for mums out there . First I was thinking of new mums and doing the diaper give away and folding tutorial .However that would exclude many other mothers . So I thought of my bath salts and facial mask ;-) perfect fo5r all mums including grannies or great grannies too . Something to help sooth those aching bones after a hard days work of non stop go go go . Along with the bath salts and facial mask There is also a pack of calendula seed ( marigold ) and a wonderful book titled Mary's Flowers for inspiration . As a little gift is an Our Lady Guadalupe pin to wear on a jacket , purse etc.
About the items . The bath salts are epsom salts mixed with organic essential oils . We offer the lavender/ rose which have organic lavender buds and organic rose petals . The other scent is cedar/ orange which has organic dried orange peel and wildcrafted cedar from the cedar bog picked for palm Sunday and our own personal use . The Clay facial mask is natural grey clay from our own lake property here . It has been streelized and perpared with wild organic mint ( not peppermint ) this is real authentic mint used by my great grandmother ;-) all that needs be done is add your own water to make the clay of the consistancy you would like and smooth onto face . It provides a nice tingly feeling and is an excellent facial cleanser .
The calendula is grown here in our own garden and is collected in autumn it has also spread to the neighbouring Catholic church yard by the hundreds ;-)
The book Mary's flowers is a beautiful book full of history , prints of flowers and the legends that go along with the flowers . It is an inspiration for anyone hoping to begin thier own Mary garden dedicated to our Lady .
The Our Lady Guadalupe pin came from a wonderful store in MX city where I purchase these pins and other items for myself and gifts for others .
This give away begins now and will end the Monday after Mother's Day . Just a week not much time . So if you would like to enter your name or perhaps the name of your mother/ grandmother etc. into the flower pot please leave in the comment section or e-mail me . I only need a full name for now if you have won I will send you a message requesting addy etc.
Thank you for visiting my blog and hoping regardless if you win the give away or not maybe some inspiration has been sparked along the way ;-) God Bless
