Floral oils can ease a troubled mind. By helping us be aware of beauty, they open our hearts to more positivity and love. Some of these oils are precious, like rose and neroli.

Others, like lavender, are more common. Pick your favorites to make Mom a personalized aromatic “bouquet” of oils!

1. Rose Absolute Oil

Latin name: (Rosa x damascena)

The queen of flowers, for the queen of your family! Rose is a precious floral oil that inspires love and forgiveness, allowing stress to naturally dissolve (this is especially great gifting for new moms!).

2. Lavender Oil

Latin name: (Lavandula angustifolia)

One of the most popular oils in the world, lavender is a perfect gift for moms! It has a wide array of uses, and is proven to calm stress from multiple angles.

3. Neroli Oil

Latin name: (Citrus aurantium var amara)

Made popular by a princess (the princess of Nerola), beautiful Neroli remains a precious oil today for overcoming emotional distress.

Juicy and sweet, this oil smells like lime candy! It’s distilled from organically grown fruits in the Italian countryside. She's bound to love this gift of summer for mother's day!

*Like many citrus oils, lemon is phototoxic, meaning it can cause reactions like burning, blistering, and discoloration in sunlight or UV light. Please refer to the individual product pages for specific safety information for each oil. (Orange and distilled lime are NOT phototoxic.

Famous for its “chill vibes,” patchouli oil can help mom let go of worries and unwind. Its rich aroma is different from the popular incense.

Hydrosol trio

Hi, my name is Karen Williams. As a professional aromatherapist, I love to create amazing blends that inspire and promote a healthier lifestyle. I got my start many years ago as a registered nurse working in the hospital system. But along the way I knew something was missing. I wanted to help people more holistically. Then, I discovered essential oils, and my approach to life changed forever. Now, I’ve made it my mission to share what I’ve learned about aromatherapy with my friends, family, and the world. Because - life is so much better with health, happiness, and community.
