That’s right, babes. It’s time for some You Time. Some self-loving. An aromatic bath. A gigantic ice cream sundae with mountains of hot fudge. A solo dance party. A break. It is time for you and I to put aside the woes/stressors/drabness of day-to-day life and take care of ourselves!
Let’s start with a bath – the perfect place to start. Not just a regular bath either – one with aromatic scrubs, locally-made soaps, and BATH BOMBS! A hot bath is a form of heat therapy, which relaxes the muscles in your body, relieving the physical and emotional stress that we accumulate throughout the day.
Throw in one of our bath bombs to start (they come in various scents, including rose, raspberry, and French pear!). Watch it work its fizzy magic. Hop into the tub and let those scented essential oils and soothing coconut oil set in. Throw in some locally made soap and give yourself a DIY facial with Moon Rivers yummy Peppermint Lavender scrub. This may seem like a lot, but hey, you deserve it!
Once you’ve pampered yourself to the point where your skin is exactly twice as soft as a baby’s, it’s time for you to…pamper yourself some more, mentally and spiritually, with the coolest self-help book in the land: Basic Witches: How to Summon Success, Banish Drama, and Raise Hell with Your Coven, by Jaya Saxena and Jess Zimmerman.
“Basic Witches” is not just for those who practice Magic, but it offers a deep overview of self-love and care through a historically magical lens. In short, it is for any glamorous and confident femme in training, offering advice on everyday obstacles included but not limited to toxic relationships, energy loss, a lack of creative inspiration. Also, the illustrations are INCREDIBLE! If nothing else, pick up this book for the illustrations.
Be sure to strategically surround yourself with candles and crystals while you read, to ward off all possible bad juju and welcome radical positivity into your life. (Note: Agate that forms the shape of Cookie Monster’s face ((see below)) is not absolutely necessary, but preferred).
In conclusion, I, Alex, Queen of Hearts blogger/self-help consultant, urge you to use this coming Valentines Day as an opportunity to show love to the most important person in your life, YOU.
