I’m going to give you a little secret: Moms who are raising kids stressful challenges, like medical issues, autism and developmental delays tend to forget about Mother’s Day. Sometimes their kids don’t know or can’t understand why this day is special or how to make it special because of their disabilities. Rather than thinking of yourself this Mother’s Day, I want you to think about a mom who won’t get any gifts or special treatment this year because of her child’s special needs.
Help a Special Needs Mom on Mother’s Day
These moms have never gotten a present from their child – so step in do this for them! Arrange to watch her kids so she can get some “me time” or a date night. Take her out for a pre-Mother’s Day lunch while the kids are at school or respite. Better yet, buy her a nice gift. What could be more lovely than a basket full of non-toxic goodies just in time for Mother’s Day? Stumped on where to buy her clean, organic goodies? I have just the ticket. Herban Lifestyle carries safe, clean, organic bath and beauty products.

Review: Herban Lifestyle Products
I was offered a sample of their products, and I want to share with you my experience using them!
I loved washing with these! I simply poured these grains out and spritzed on my cleanser. They felt very gentle on my skin and thoroughly did the job. They are sold by the glass bottle (glass, of course) but in the near future, Herban Lifestyle will offer refillable grains so you don’t have to purchase the bottles all the time.
I have lots of trouble finding a great shampoo that is safe for the kids but I feel confident using this on my girls. Their hair gets soft and shapely with this soap, and very clean. I would not overuse the soap – it can be a challenge to wash off if you use too much, but it does clean hair very well and is perfect for the whole family – as long as you tell your husband it’s shampoo and NOT soap. (Be honest – yours shampoos with soap, too, I bet!)
I tested the lip creme for myself and loved the way it felt so I decided to give it to Amelia. Again, I love that these products are so safe for my sensitive kids! She has a real problem with dry, cracked lips – and then she licks them and they get worse. So every morning and night, I let her use this lip creme. She now enjoys it and her lips are refreshed and soft when she leaves for school.
The best part? After using these products, my husband keeps complimenting me on how nice I smell! Organic, natural and full of clean and effective ingredients, I highly recommend Herban Lifestyle as the perfect gift source for the special needs mom in your life this Mother’s Day.
Herban Lifestyle, Mother’s Day and special needs moms: the perfect combination to put a smile on a truly deserving face!
