Get Mom More Connected to Mother Nature In Three Easy Ways

It's that time of year again - the trees are in bloom, the sun stays out later in the day, and my skin is no longer translucent (holler). Sans pollen and pollen-induced sneezing, springtime is always such a welcomed restart to get back in touch with good ole Mother Nature (as I guess any change of season is, but this one comes with Saturdays on the water, outdoor sporting events, and mountain-view hiking without 5 extra pounds of clothing). You know what also comes with Spring? Mother's Day. Yep, time to show that special lady in your life what you really think, which is "hey, I think you're seriously a rockstar for all that you do for me."

I don't know about your mom (or grandmother or best friend's mom or whomever you consider a mother-figure in your life), but my mom is always on the go. Either she's visiting myself or one of my sisters (not a one of us lives close by, whoops) or she's driving to Florida to manage the rental property that she and my dad have. She's always putting her children, her husband, heck, even her dog, above herself and her needs.

So I'm thinking that what Momma Flowers needs this Mother's Day is some RELAXATION. That's right, you heard me, she needs to chill. She needs to sit down, take some time for herself, and oh yeah, reconnect with Mother Nature. Mother Nature has gifted us all with an immeasurable about of things that are ours for the taking - the sweet salty smell of the ocean, the soothing sound of rustling leaves, and natural colored stones that actually carry calming properties within them! Calming stones - yeah, that's a thing, not kidding. So what does Mom need this Mother's Day? She needs to feel relaxed and calm, and the best way to do that is to wear Mother Nature's gifts right around her neck! And I'm here to tell you about three of those gifts - Rose Quartz, Blue Lace Agate, and White Howlite. Get one of each in necklace form so it's always close to her heart and a constant reminder of you - the Best. Gift. Giver. Ever. I recommend the Sarah Necklace.

Rose Quartz

The Jist - Rose Quartz is a love stone. It is a symbol of love, peace, and calming energy.

Tell me what it does - When worn, Rose Quartz sends a soothing vibration to the wearer and anyone in the room, bestowing a peaceful sensation. It lowers stress and tension in the heart, clearing out anger, jealousy, and resentment of others and allowing for the healing of heart issues associated with holding onto that negative energy.

Bonus - Though Rose Quartz is a symbol of all kinds of love, both familial and otherwise, it's also known to actually attract romantic love. Who doesn't want a little more romance in their life?!

Blue Lace Agate

The Jist - Blue Lace Agate is a gentle, calming stone that brings along with it tranquility and grace. It's even considered a happiness stone, as well as one of hope.

Tell me what it does - Blue Lace Agate lessens anger and calms nervousness. Perfect for a traveling momma who gets nervous when she (or her babies) are on the road!

Bonus -  It's a protective stone, as with all agates. This stone is especially known for its protectiveness over children (snag a Sarah Necklace in Blue Lace Agate for yourself to assure mom that you're protected, too).

White Howlite

The Jist - White Howlite is a stone used for calming upset states of mind. 

Tell me what it does - White Howlite decreases an overly critical state of mind, stress, and anxiety by bringing calm and relaxation (what'd I tell ya - Mom NEEDS this!) Howlite can also decrease anger, both internally and externally. 

Bonus - Howlite is also used to heighten creativity and expand self-expression!

The Breakdown

When mom needs to feel loved or destress from a long day - give her Rose Quartz

When mom gets nervous because her children are all over the country or she's about to go on a trip - give her Blue Lace Agate

When mom has a lot on her mind (and let's be honest, you do something not-so-wonderful that upsets her) - give her White Howlite

So, which Sarah Necklace colorway is your momma getting this Mother's Day?
