It's spring! Although it's been a cold one here in the Northeast, the flowers haven't seemed to notice. A recent trip to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden left me overwhelmed by the generosity of flowers, by how lucky we are to live among such grandeur.
For me, Mother's Day is also abounding with reasons to be grateful. I have a fantastic relationship with my mother, which I know is nothing to take for granted. And the abiding love I have for my own daughter is the anchor of my life.
So sharing flowers with mothers just seems like the perfect match. Hey, it's a classic for a reason! Green beauty brands have harnessed the power of so many beautiful flowers. Take a look!
Cactus Flower: La Flora by La Bella Figura,. This beautiful, rare Barbary Fig Cactus Flower Oil is paired with Barbary Fig Cactus Seed Oil for a blend that helps with sun damage, hyper-pigmentation, and fine lines.
Jasmine: The intoxicating jasmine scent of May Lindstrom's Jasmine Garden adds moisture and extravagant beauty to any face ritual. Heavenly!
Rose: This decadent Petal Mask from Mahalo combines rose with 28 active ingredients for a plumping, glow-inducing treatment that has to be smelled to be believed!
Peony: Enlighten Spring Beauty Oil from 5YINA harnesses peony root and 24 other herbal components to help balance, protect, and soothe skin as it transitions from winter into summer. And oh my, that gorgeous packaging!!
Lilac: Bottega Organica combines French Lilac, Neroli, and other active naturals for the Overnight Renewal Cream that promises to rejuvenate, stimulate skin renewal and protect. Science and nature in accord.
And that gorgeous bouquet is from Farm Girl Flowers, a company committed to US grown flowers, minimal waste, and a what-you-see-is-what-you-get ordering process! So beautiful!
