A group of us have been meeting at park days and taking field trips together with our kids for over two years now. Each season brings different needs from the children and different offerings from the mothers. Recently, we began a series of Momma Workshops wherein once a week, a mom from our group would bring a presentation to share with the children.
One of our mothers is an aromatherapist and decided to create a Spa Day. Of course, all of the moms in the group were thrilled with this idea. Our excitment was contagious and the children eagerly sat in a circle to learn the healing properties of the various ingredients.
Our momma leader for the day, Amanda, brought in essential oils and various carrying agents. She taught us how to make bath salts, salt scrubs and aromatherapy spritzers. The children got to choose three essential oils that resonated with them, add it to the salt, blend it and package it in a jar to take home.
The children also mixed the face mask ingredients together and helped slice the cucumbers. We took turns applying the masks and the moms got a treatment as well.
It was an inspiring day that will never be forgotten. There are many ways to enjoy a Spa Day!
You can do this or any Momma Workshop! Ask your friends, or make new friends! Rotate houses or use one house that lends itself to the nature of the gathering. Potluck & share costs for supplies. It works well to set it on a reoccurring schedule: “First Saturday of the month,” “Second & Fourth Tuesday,” or “Every Friday.” Enjoy!
