Mother’s Day. Often associated with Brunches, Bling and Bouquets, there’s no denying that it’s a hallmark holiday (gasp). Regardless, there is something special about setting aside a whole day to honor and celebrate the women who raised us.

Mother’s Day is a holiday that honours motherhood and that is observed throughout the world. Festivals celebrating mothers and motherhood can be traced back to the ancient Greeks and Romans, who held them in honor of the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele. It’s more recent origins go back to 1870, when Julia Ward Howe – an abolitionist best remembered as the poet who wrote “Battle Hymn of the Republic” – worked to establish a Mother’s Peace Day.  Howe dedicated the celebration to the eradication of war, and organized festivities in Boston for years.

In 1908, Anna Jarvis conceived of Mother’s Day as a way of honoring the sacrifices mothers made for their children following her mother’s 1905 death. It became recognized as an official U.S. holiday in 1914. Jarvis later denounced the holiday’s commercialization and spent the latter part of her life trying to remove it from the calendar. While dates and celebrations vary around the globe, Mother’s Day most commonly falls on the second Sunday in May and traditionally involves presenting mothers with flowers, cards and other gifts.

How We Celebrate Mother’s Day

Sometimes, I get to start the day with a special breakfast. Never in bed; because, you know…Crumbs.

I’m not a fan of tchotchkes. To me, one of the biggest indulgences is time. My family knows that I don’t expect presents so my gift is being able to steal away for an indulgent afternoon. Over the past few years, I’ve been fortunate enough to indulge with my sister (also a mom) and my mother for a glorious break that involves window shopping, walking and tea. In our food obsessed family, a celebration wouldn’t be one without food! Our lazy afternoon is often capped off by dinner prepared by the men and children in our family.

To Moms everywhere – Happy Mother’s Day this year! I hope that you are indulged and loved by all those you care for.

BEST NATURAL DEODORANT I'VE TRIED!

I'm loving this deodorant from Apothekari! I'm very skeptical about natural deodorants because I perspire a lot and had always used antiperspirants. Wanting to go more natural, I've tried a few natural deodorants and this is by far the best. I can apply in the a.m., go overnight, and work out the next a.m. without having to reapply. I also love the smell. I have scent sensitivities and this citrus-ginger mix doesn't bother me at all. Super-happy with my purchase.

My recent order of apothecary

I’m so pleased with my products! My skin is already more radiant, pores are tighter !

Great deodorant!

I’ve tried many natural deodorants with mixed results. The Apothekari deodorant works GREAT, even when doing intense workouts. I also like the scent of all of the products. The skin of my underarms seems to have improved texture as well. I will definitely repurchase.

It works wonders! But strong scent...

This is the first and only natural deodorant that has kept me fresh for more than 6 hours. I put it on at night after my shower and it keeps me Oder free for around 12 hours. LUMÉ couldn’t do that for me! I wouldn’t buy this particular scent again though, I thought it would have a nice balance between the Neroli and Rose, but I cannot smell Rose at all - in my opinion it comes off smelling very manly. Next time I will order the lavender and bergamot scent.

The deodorant is great, gently shake and roll on. It’s very watery so I rub my arms back and forth to get it applied everywhere and then wait for a second in front of the fan before putting on a shirt. But it sooo worth it!!! Amazing deodorant and no rashes! My skin feels healthy. I have been using it for about a month.

Game Changer!

I've tried prescriptions and other products that claim to help with vaginal dryness and none compare to this product. So natural and no added hormones or perfumes. A real game changer for me! Also BEST name for this!
