There’s a season in every parent’s life that is so busy it can be torturous to our bodies and mental health… Birthday party season.
You know it’s true! For some reason my closest mom friends and I all had babies in the same month- April. So every weekend we’ll be at birthday party after birthday party and then there’s also Easter weekend.
Add to this both my daughters’ birthdays are in April so we have one big birthday bash for them both. That was this weekend and there was no rest after we successfully threw an awesome Playdough Birthday Party. On Monday everyone was off to school and work. I was dying.
I had one of those tired headaches that you’d think an extra cup of coffee would fix, but it didn’t. I was so desperate for the pounding to stop that I tried to take an afternoon nap but I was so tense and my mind was racing- I just couldn’t relax.
Later that day a package came in the mail from Okanagan Lavender. A small batch lavender company that grows and harvests their own herbs in Okanagan British Columbia.
If you’ve been following Maturing Mama for a while, you’ll know I’m obsessed with all things lavender. And my obsession has led me to the realization that not all lavender products are created equally. There’s nothing more disappointing than finding a lavender product that’s watered down or synthetic.
Anyway, I was so excited to open this package from Okanagan Lavender. It included bottle spray toners for different skin types. My heart soared. I love a good toner!
I gave my face a good wash thinking, this will at least wake me up so I can get things done instead of dragging my feet with this horrible headache. Afterwards I sprayed the Botanical Toner for Dry Skin on my face. I was hit with pure lavender and it was heaven!
After doing this I suddenly found myself sat down on my bed. Then I just laid down. My mind was actually relaxed. Like all of the tension drained out of me. Then I closed my eyes.
That was definitely pure lavender!
I’ve been using this toner every time I wash my face. I try to wash my face the moment I wake up and then after going for an afternoon run. My face is left glowing and my mind is relaxed. I love how settled and refreshed this toner makes me feel.
These toners from Okanagan Lavender can be used at any time of the day for a refreshing herbal mist. I love that it’s all natural and not just good for my skin but especially good for my mind.
