Mothers give us unconditional love all year round and they always deserve appreciation for it. Once a year, however, we celebrate Mother’s Day to honor motherhood and to shower moms with an extra dose of love and affection.
This Mother’s Day, give Mom the gift of glowing skin with luxurious skincare products from Yon-Ka Paris and receive a special free gift. French-inspired skincare brand Yon-Ka Paris is partnering with Palais des Thés, purveyor of fine teas, to make this Mother’s Day one to remember.
A Brief History of Mother’s Day
Mother’s Day, celebrated on the second Sunday of May each year, became an official U.S. holiday in 1914. Created Jarvis in 1908, Mother’s Day grew out of the 19th century tradition of Mother’s’ Day Work Clubs.
In the years before the Civil War, a woman named Ann Reeves Jarvis started the first club to help teach local women the ins and outs of motherhood. The clubs eventually became popular around the country.
In 1870, Julia Ward Howe released the “Mother’s Day Proclamation,” calling mothers across America to unite in promoting world peace. A few years later, Ward campaigned to make Mother’s Peace Day an official holiday to be celebrated every June 2nd.
By the 1900s, Anna Jarvis, daughter of Ann Reeves Jarvis, had begun her own campaign to create a national holiday honoring the sacrifices mothers make for their children. The first official Mother’s Day celebration was held at a Methodist church in Grafton, West Virginia in 1908. By 1912, many states had adopted the tradition and Mother’s Day was officially established as a national holiday by President Woodrow Wilson in 1914.

Motherhood is a difficult and often thankless job. Raising a family takes a great deal of time and energy, so much that many mothers struggle to take time for themselves.
We all deserve to feel special and appreciated, so what better way to say “Happy Mother’s Day” than to give your mom the gift of a little bit of pampering.
Family-owned for more than 67 years, Yon-Ka Paris offers a versatile collection of luxuriant skincare products. Known for innovation in aromatherapy and phyotherapy, Yon-Ka creates products that merge botany, wellness, and beauty in formulas that deliver scientifically proven results.
This year, when you spend $175 or more on gifts for Mom, you’ll receive a free Phyto Contour + a Grand Jasmin Chun Feng miniature tin of Palais des Thés.
In partnership with premium tea purveyor Palais des Thés, Yon-Ka is also offering a 1-ounce tin of Grand Jasmin Chun Feng tea and a ceramic mug. Use these bonus gifts to create a fabulous Mother’s Day gift basket or enjoy a little pampering yourself.
Share the Love with the Planet
While you’re showering Mom with love this Mother’s Day, why not show a little love for the planet as well? Both Yon-Ka Paris and Palais des Thés are on a mission to design products that demonstrate respect for nature and for the people of our planet. In fact, Yon-Ka has exemplified their environmental commitment since 2014 with their Save the Bees campaign.
Since 2014, Yon-Ka has helped establish beehives that provide safe homes for thousands of bees. Originally established in Provence, Yon-Ka’s hives created shelter for over 400,000 bees. Since the start of the project, however, Yon-Ka has helped save over 750,000 bees internationally.
When you shop with Yon-Ka Paris this Mother’s Day, you’ll not only be supporting Mom but you’ll be supporting Yon-Ka Paris’ and Palais des Thés’ mission to support the beautiful world we live in.
