Must-Have Self-Care Gifts!

If 2020 had a Marketing Campaign; it would definitely be that one from the vintage Calgon Bath and Body Company. For you youngsters, the commercial featured a woman so overwhelmed with daily life, she finally screams…“Calgon! Take me away!” She sinks into a bath, and all of her problems disappear. Since most of us are now at home more than usual, there is a good chance that everyone is all up in everyone else’s grill, and that alone could be a bit more than we can handle day after day. That being said, it’s so crucial for us to seek some quiet time and take a little edge off to “take us away” from it all. These glorious products allow us to unwind, chill and get some of that pent-up energy out so we can press on with life. Times are tough, and we need all the help we can get!

Shower Steamers

I love a bath, but being a mom of 2-year-old twins, I rarely have time to take one, so I cherish every second of my 3-4 minute showers. With these nifty little shower steamers, it becomes even more of a spa-like experience. Similar to bath bombs, these tablets are created with essential oils, citric acid and baking soda. But unlike the bombs, you don’t submerge them into the water, but you place them on the floor just out of the shower stream, where water is less likely to make direct contact with the tablet. The shower’s warm steam begins to gently release the essential oils’ aroma as the tablet slowly melts away… hopefully, along with all of your cares and worries. (Well, at least for those 3-4 minutes!)  

Scalp Massager 

This cheap and cheerful little gadget is made from super-smooth silicone, and it’s easy to grip. It not only feels fantastic on your noggin, but it also soothes itchy scalp controls dandruff and oily buildup. More than just washing your hair with your fingers, this stimulates your scalp for healthy, clean, and shiny hair. It promotes healthy hair growth for longer, more beautiful hair, and better blood circulation. It also doubles as a fantastic back scratcher! 

Warmie Microwave Friends 

I bought these initially for my twins to snuggle at nap and nighttime but ended up buying one for myself because they are not only super cute and soft but are filled with lavender and flax seeds, so they smell divine and calm you for sleep. They also warm up nicely in the microwave and stay warm for about 45 minutes to an hour.  

Smudge Sticks, ABC Carpet and Home

Have you ever walked into a home or space and get the heebee jeebees? I do, a lot. I am a firm believer that places hold residual energy and this energy can be positive and sometimes yucky, so it’s super important to keep our living spaces spiritually clean as this energy can rub off on us! “Smudging” is one of the ways to do this. Smudging is an ancient ritual used in many cultures where our ancestors burned herbs, flowers, and resins and believed the sacred smoke assisted with elevating vibrations and neutralizing negative energies. The smoke fills and purifies the environment and with some minor preparations and a little prayer or mantra, you can send those yuckies a packin’ and clear the air.
