For Mother Earth
Mother’s Day (or Mothering Sunday, as it is known in the UK) is almost upon us again! This year it seems to have crept-up behind us as quickly and stealthily as Spring! For the less organised among us, we at BITB have done the hard work for you, scouring the stores for the best in gifts so you can easily pick-out the perfect present for your mum in time for Sunday and there’s something for all budgets.
Natural beauty products, free from nasties, gentle on her skin, yet luxurious. Mother Earth will love the indulgent Mummy Pamper Kit from NEOM organics. There’s a body oil, bath oil and mini candle all in their best selling scent, Real Luxury, and there are no synthetics, petrochemicals or parabens – just pure essential oils & the finest organic ingredients. The NEOM candle is perfect for bath time mood lighting and is made of 100% vegetable wax candles, so there’s no unsightly black soot or toxins.
