Skanda Mata is considered as the fifth form of Goddess Durga. SkandaSkandaSkanda
The fifth manifestation of the Durga worshipped on Navratri...
Mata is the daughter of Himalaya, and got married to Shiva. She was the mother of Skand Kumar (KartikeyaKartikeyaKartikeya

) Thus given her the name Skandmata.  Skanda (Lord Kartikeya) who was chosen by gods as their commander in the war against the demons.

Skand Mata is depicted as the Goddess, who has three eyes and four hands. She holds Lord Skanda in her right upper arm and a lotus flower in her right lower hand, which is slightly raised upward. The upper left arm is in a pose of granting boon and in left lower hand, is raised to holds a lotus. The tone of her body is very bright. She is seated on a lotus flower in Padmasana.

By worshipping the goddess Skandamata, the devotees gets all their desires fulfilled. They start experiencing the Supreme joy even in this very physical world. The gateway for salvation to him is spontaneously opened. Her worship automatically includes the worship of Lord Skanda in his infantile form. The devotee should particularly be attentive to her worship. Being the presiding deity of the sun god, she bestows an uncommon luster and radiance on her devotee. He is always surrounded by an invisible divine halo.

There is a belief that by the mercy of Skandmata, even the idiot becomes an ocean of knowledge. 

We see the energies of Skandmata transforming healing blessings of the other goddesses also to bring good vibration into the home and place of work.
