Celebrate Mothers
It’s May, which means Mother’s Day is right around the corner. It’s been a long, strange year, and in many families, the person holding it all together has been Mom — whether she’s got little ones at home all day, every day or college kids who’ve flown back to the nest to attend school from their childhood bedrooms. Maybe a bouquet of roses or carnations isn’t gonna cut it this year. So, how can you honor the moms in your life? You can still buy th...

To Support Your Emotional Wellness, Turn to Plants*

To Support Your Emotional Wellness, Turn to Plants*

Let’s Talk About Periods

Let’s Talk About Periods
It wasn’t too long ago that mentioning the word “period” could clear a room in ten seconds flat. Luckily, we’ve come a long way in a few decades. And yet, there’s still stigma around menstruation. Which is kinda ridiculous, considering it’s a totally natural process that happens to half the population and is essential for the continuance of the human race. So let’s bust those tabooed doors open and talk about periods! Women have a lot of periods. O...
