When is Mother's Day?

In the UK Mother's Day falls on the fourth Sunday of Lent, or three weeks before Easter Sunday - and as the dates of Lent varies every year, so does Mothering Sunday. This blog post explains the history and traditions of Mothers Day around the world.

1. The gift of a great night's sleep
Made with a custom blend of relaxing essential oils, spritz Sleep Easy pillow & room mist on pillows and bed linen for deep sleep, around a room, on a piece of clothing or even a yoga mat to give a sense of peace and serenity.

2. The gift of relaxation
For the mum who loves a bath, College Green bath soaks are pure bliss. A combination of three different salts, pure essential oils and skin soothing colloidal oatmeal make the perfect combination for a luxurious soak.

3. The gift of a gorgeously scented room
Reed diffusers fill a room with a beautifully subtle scent for weeks on end. No need to light a candle, or even remember to flip the wicks on these - once set up they can be left to work their magic, ready to greet you every time you walk into the room.

4. The gift of a cosy night in
A gently flickering scented candle in an amber glass jar is just the thing for a cosy night in with a new spring collection available and a choice of 180g or 500g three wick jars set with gorgeous crystal gemstones.

5. The gift of abundance
Combine a pillow spray with a candle, a set of natural soaps or a complete wax warmer set - there are lots of different gift box combinations to choose from.

6. The gift of choice
