In honor of the most important women in our life (who, frankly, should get a whole weekend instead of a day) this blog is all about you, Moms! Thank you for raising us. The future generations of healers, geniuses, and those who will change the world and make a difference. You are the ones who do it all, and we cannot thank you enough. How did Mother’s Day start, by the way? Do you know the history? Here are some fun facts about the day we all treat our Mothers like queens:
