Happy Mother’s Day

This Sunday is Mother’s Day, a time to celebrate those that have been a major force of support and inspiration in your life. Be it your mother, caregiver, or any person in your life who has guided you, it is time to say thank you – and shower them with love (and gifts!).

Origins

The origins of Mother’s Day start with the Greeks and Romans celebrating mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele with festivals. The contemporary inspiration comes from the older Christian tradition of “Mothering Sunday,” in which devoted followers would return to their mother church for Lent services. As the years progressed, the tradition turned into holiday in which children honor their mothers with gifts, such as flowers and mementoes.

Modern Holiday

Traditional American Mother’s Day owes its place on the calendar to Anna Jarvis. After the death of her mother in 1905, she pushed for a permanent way to honor all mothers, as well as establish a holiday that celebrates the achievement of women (at the time most holidays were androcentric). Anna Jarvis’ mission to pay tribute to mothers resulted in President Woodrow Wilson declaring the second Sunday in May officially Mother’s Day.

Thank You

Though every day should be Mother’s Day, it is time to officially pay tribute to mom. Did you know Mother’s Day holds the record for most phone calls made in a day, topping every other day of the year? Time to make that phone call, send those flowers and gifts, and remind moms everywhere how important they are.

The Perfect Gift

Still looking for that special something to send mom this year? HollyBeth Organics offers a wonderful selection of inspired gifts, including new Flourish Calming Perfume, our exclusive Rose Geranium Soy Candle, gift certificates, and more!

Atlanta Shopping – Fig & Flower

Atlanta Shopping: In Search of the Perfect Gifts

February is a month of gift-giving occasions for me. Of course Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, but I also have my friend’s wedding anniversary and my sister-in-law’s birthday to celebrate. So, my present list consists of a fella who insists he doesn’t need anything (my husband), a fashionista with impeccable taste (my friend), and a mother of two who is always on the go (my sister in law). Sounds like a busy weekend of shopping in Atlanta!

Highland Row

Rather than run around the city, I decided to go to one of the best shopping spots in the Poncey-Highlands area of Atlanta. Often referred to as “Highland Row,” this charming lineup of boutiques offers a variety of unique crafts and gifts. First stop, Highland Row Antiques. This two story antique store has something for everyone. I find a musical gift for my husband in one of the used record bins and head next store to Young Blood Boutique, the perfect spot to find artisan crafted jewelry. I pick out a beautiful necklace sure to please my fashionable friend and head to my favorite store on the block: Fig & Flower.

Fig & Flower

This green beauty boutique offers natural, cruelty-free beauty products, including HollyBeth Organics, the only 100% USDA Certified Organic skincare product line in Georgia. I go straight for HollyBeth Organics’ Rose Geranium Face Moisturizer, a favorite of my sister-in-law not only for its hydrating power but also for its delightful flowery fragrance.

HollyBeth Online

Knowing my sister-in-law’s love of HollyBeth’s rose geranium aroma, I hopped online and sent her one of HollyBeth Organics’ limited edition Rose Geranium Candles, each hand-made with eco-friendly soy wax and packaged in a porcelain vessel made by Atlanta’s own Honeycomb Studio. Go to HollyBethOrganics.com to purchase this one-of-a-kind candle, beautifully gift wrapped and ready to go.

Looks like I’m all set! Now time to shop for some more HollyBeth Organics products just for me ;).

The Perfect Valentine’s Day Gift for Her – Rose Geranium Candles

Valentine’s Day is around the corner: another gift-giving holiday that may leave some of us clueless as to what to give that special someone. If you’re like me, you’ve probably gone the roses and chocolate route every year, which is totally understandable – who doesn’t love flowers and candy? But why not add a little something special with one of HollyBeth Organics’ limited edition Rose Geranium Candles.

Eco-Friendly Candles

Made with premium kosher, EcoSoya wax, each candle is hand-made with love and scented with HollyBeth’s favorite rose geranium essential oil. Enjoy flowery notes of sweet rose and soothing geranium, a luxurious aroma inspired by trips to the Botanical Gardens and the fresh flowers at Hall’s Atlanta Florist.

Hand-Crafted Vessel

Each candle comes in a unique, artisan-made vessel adorned with gold leaf accent rings, crafted at Atlanta’s own Honeycomb Studio. Reuse the vessel as a vase, pen holder, or even a drinking cup. A thoughtful Valentine’s Day gift for anyone in your life seeking roses and romance.

Limited Edition

HollyBeth candles are hand-made in small batches, allowing her to create one-of-a-kind, limited edition scents inspired by the flavors of the season. Stock is limited, so be sure to order soon if you want to surprise that special someone this February 14! And don’t forget to treat yourself, too ;). The perfect Valentine’s Day gift for her – and you!

*Each candle comes gift wrapped in gold tissue paper with ribbon.
