If you’re wondering why Mom would want this at all, please see the previous article as to why Mom’s Hate Mother’s Day Brunch Out..
Continuing on with Gestures as Gifts for Mother’s Day, this concept creates an area of peace and quiet for Mom inside the house away from any noise and distractions.
Using a room that Mom may use all by herself (at least for an hour!), set her up with some juicy reading, a snuggly blanket, slippers and a glowing candle. I recommend the The Splendor Santa Barbara candle* because it’s clean burning and non-scented. Although scented candles are nice for well-ventilated areas, they aren’t all that great for smaller spaces. As you are creating a space for Mom, this means you may have to shut the door and you don’t want her getting an gaggy overdose of scent. The handcrafted Splendor Santa Barbara Candle is made of pure beeswax and coconut oil. These oils are not only air ionizing, but the oils are so pure that Mom can apply the candle to her skin for moisturizing! (What is ionizing? See below) The golden wax produces a barely-there scent of beeswax, keeping the air clean and purified. It will also outlast her hour of bliss with a 40 hour burn time.
This handpoured sustainable candle actually emits negative ions. Here comes the science.. Stay with me..this is actually pretty cool. Pollen, dust, dirt and pollutants all carry a positive charge. The negative ions released from burning beeswax negate the positive charge of air contaminants. The neutralized ions are sucked back into the burning candle or fall to the ground. Many air purifiers and water filters harness the same negative ion technology.
For Mom’s Indoor Nook of Peace, make sure to include a beverage of her liking! I think a glass of pinot noir pairs nicely with quiet. What do you think?
