Self-Care Basics For a Relaxing Night In

September 16, 2020 3 min read

This September, we want to remind you to prioritize yourself. While it can be easy to move self-care practices to the bottom of your to-do-list, they’re an essential part of taking care of both our mental and physical health. Self-care isn’t selfish, and it’s not unproductive. It’s the things we do to recharge and manage stress, so we don’t burnout - a very real phenomenon.


Read on to see the 6 self-care basics we recommend for the most relaxing night in! Let us know in the comments what your self-care essentials are!

 

1) Candles

Set the tone for your night of self-care with a scented candle. Murphy & Jo candles are all individually hand poured with lots of love. Their paraffin free soy candles are made using locally sourced ingredients. Changing the scent of a room is a good way to denote time for self-care. With many of us working from home right now, this is a great way to separate work time from personal time.

 

 

2) Adaptogens 

Relax and unwind with Adapt Daily’s adaptogen gummies. Unfamiliar with adaptogens?Adaptogens are non-toxic plants that help protect the body from the impact of stressors through supporting the adrenal glands, which regulate our hormonal responses to stress. Gummies that help manage stress? Yes please!

 

 

3) Bath & Body Products

Turn your place into a relaxing spa with MIFA bath and body products. Committed to promoting self-care from the inside out, MIFA’s plant-rich bath and body offerings are created to restore, refresh and reset our experience by encouraging daily connection to self, deep breathing and relaxation. We’re coveting their EUCALYPTUS COCO Body Wash, formulated with concentrated essential oils for aromatherapeutic affects both internally and externally.

 

 

 4) Skincare

Skincare is a common form of self-care, the daily ritual of taking the time to care for your skin is one of the few times many of us truly take for ourselves. A brand that knows this well is jELN, a Toronto-based, self-care line focused on natural beauty and positive energy. Emphasizing natural beauty and suitable for all skin types; jELN aims to nourish, rejuvenate and heal the skin.

 

 

5) Bedding You Love

End your evening of self-care with a good night’s rest in White Terry organic luxury bedding. We’re obsessed with their sustainably, ethically made organic sheets. Their bedding checks all the boxes you want in your linens and more. Is there anything better than hopping into clean cozy sheets on a cool fall night?

 

 

6) Sleep Mask

The last step to getting a good night’s rest to wake up rejuvenated is slipping on your silky Encircled Renew Sleep Mask. Rest easy knowing this sleep mask is good for the planet, and safe for your skin. Made from eco-friendly Tencel™ Lyocell and recycled polyester fleece, this mask is created from upcycled textile waste that we’ve saved from the landfill.
