Mother’s Day is all about family. I shop for my mother’s card each and every year, carefully opening several to read the inside before settling on the perfect card. This year while shopping for mom’s special card at Walmart, I picked up this amazing card from PS Hello and the inside had me giggling because it reminded me of a few close mom friends of mine. Our group consists of four of us and we’ve lovingly dubbed ourselves Majestic Mess. We text and video chat daily, sharing our struggles, triumphs, and even bodily functions (believe it or not, ha!). These women and I are bonded in motherhood and have come to love each other as deeply as sisters. They’re my family. They’re my tribe.

The fun card, while hilariously calling out a love of spirits also sends a message of how grateful I am to be mothering alongside them in life. I’ve come to build relationships with these girls where I can be truly transparent, share my transgressions, confess my shortfalls, and not feel judged. Instead, their love wraps me up and helps me to be a batter wife and mother. My Majestic Mess gals are truly a blessing in my life.

This Mother’s Day I wanted to celebrate our bond and friendship, so I decided to create some relaxing Hibiscus Oatmeal Bath Tea for my ladies in opes it would encourage them to slow down, relax, and take some time for themselves. This simple DIY makes a perfect Mother’s Day gift, birthday gift, or just because gift.

YOU’LL NEED

  • dried hibiscus and tea leaves
  • oats
  • epsom salt
  • mason jar
  • cheesecloth

I start by adding a couple tablespoons of epsom salt to a small mason jar.

Next I add about a quarter of a cup of oats.

And then about a third a cup of dried hibiscus and tea leaves.

I layer them in my jar, close the lid, and give it all a good shake to combine.

The fragrant bath tea is filled with relaxing elements for my friends to soothe aching muscles, relieve dry or itchy skin, and the hibiscus will help to chill them out after a long day of mommin’. To use the Hibiscus Oatmeal Bath Tea, they’ll simply add a few spoonfuls to a cheesecloth and tie it shut using floss or twine. Then they can just drop it right into the warm bath water.

I wrapped up the sealed jar in tissue paper and sweetly designed bags from American Greetings to make it extra special for my three friends. I loved choosing bags that reflected each of their personalities and the aisle was filled with plenty of beautiful gift wrapping options, cards, and even small gifts. The PS Hello section is always filled with plenty of fun options for all of life’s celebrations year round. When you use the Ibotta app, you can earn $2 when you buy two cards!

See how American Greetings can help you make Mother’s Day extra special for your own tribe or mother.
