Can you believe it's already September? Time seems to just fly by. It's time to take a break from the chaos and learn how to create a cozy evening full of relaxation, mindfulness, and calming vibes. Each of our boxes is created as a full experience that we encourage you to indulge in. We curate each element to all fit together to create something special for our subscribers. Let's take a look at what is in our Calm and Cozy Evening Box.
Lavender Shower Steamers
Lavender is a calming soothing scent perfect for evening. These shower steamers set the stage for your experience. After dinner when it's close to winding down, throw one of these steamers in your shower to fill your senses with the scent of lavender. This will help you relax as you feel the warm water cascading over your skin. Don't make this a rushed shower. Invite all your senses to the party. If you are a morning shower person, we highly encourage you to do an evening shower for this experience.
Lavender Face Mask
We continue the lavender scent with the face mask. You will feel like you are in the spa with this hydrogel face mask. Leave it on for about 15 minutes or so to refresh your skin. In the meantime, slip into your most comfy pj's and maybe make a cup of tea or even cocoa. After 15 minutes, remove the mask and wash any residue that may remain. Use your softest towel to dry your face which will no doubt add to that spa feeling.
Smoked Bourbon Maple Candle
To add to the cozy feeling, we need a candle! This candle is the perfect scent for fall. The sweet maple is balanced out by vanilla, woods, and spice. These are soy candles and the best part is the wooden wick which makes crackling sounds as it is burning. The sound of a fire is so soothing and relaxing, and mixed in with this fantastic scent, it brings the feeling home.
Now that you have your spot all picked out with your candle to relax, it's time for the main part of the show. We picked this puzzle because it's unique. It's pieces are wooden, and it is irregular in shape so it's great to frame and save if you want to. The theme of the puzzle is perfect as it represents fall with the sunflower and bee. Doing puzzles is a great way to relax. It also encourages you to be in the present moment and focus on what you are doing. You may not finish the puzzle in one evening and that's ok! In fact that would be ideal! It gives you more evenings of self care to unwind before bed.
Hopefully you can see now how all those pieces fit together to create your experience. We all need to remember the importance of self care in all it's forms. We have another blog coming up on the importance of winding down before bed and how it's beneficial to you, so keep an eye out for that one. What do you guys think of this box? What do you do to unwind before bed?
