Sometimes self-care can be as simple as giving yourself a break in the middle of a busy day to take a few deep breaths. Other times, self-care can be an all-out pampering extravaganza. Whatever you like to do to give yourself a little love, we’ve found some things that you’re sure to use again and again.
Ready to treat yourself?
1. Happy Wraps Microwaveable Neck Wrap
Got a pain in your neck? Pop this aromatherapy-powered neck wrap in the microwave and wrap it around your cervical spine for some healing TLC. The warmth will help sore muscles relax and loosen up, and the smell of lavender has proven relaxing qualities. Plus it comes with an eye pillow for when you need to block out the world.
2. Thena Relaxation Bath Soak
Unwind in a nice hot bath with this relaxing soak that soothes achey muscles. Peppermint, rosemary, and eucalyptus oils help to ease aches and pains and open up stuffy sinuses. Plus, this soak packs the pain-relieving power of arnica, an herb that’s commonly used to treat everything from osteoarthritis to sore throats.
3. Bedtime Tea for Stress and Anxiety Relief
Whip up a cup of this soothing hot tea to settle in for a better night’s rest. Packed full of relaxing herbs like chamomile and valerian root, this tea will help you get in the mood for a good night. To sleep even better, cut down on screen time in bed and listen to some chilled-out tunes.
4. Aromatherapy Candles
This four-pack of aromatherapy candles is sure to put you in the mood to relax. The softness of candlelight combined with the calming scents of lavender, vanilla, eucalyptus, and rosemary will put you in a quiet headspace so you can really unwind. Each candle should burn for about 20 hours and they all look cute to boot!
5. Himalayan Salt Lamp
Some people say that Himalayan Salt Lamps ionize the air, giving those who suffer from depression and other ailments a positive boost. Whether you believe that or not, you can still enjoy the soft pink light of a salt lamp. They make for great mood lighting and if positive ions are real, then you can reap those benefits too.
6. Massage Sandals
You’ll probably never post a selfie in these bad boys, but they just might become your favorite pair of kicks. These massaging sandals are designed to give your sore tootsies some much-needed relief. They harness the power of reflexology to fight pain by hitting pressure points in your feet.
7. Acupressure Mat and Pillow Set
Got an aching neck or back? Thanks to increasingly sedentary lifestyles and “tech-neck,” complaints of neck and back pain are at an all-time high. This acupressure mat and pillow set fights muscle tension, back pain, and even headaches, by using little needle-like spikes to hit pressure points. You probably won’t fall asleep on it, but you will get up feeling better.
8. CozyPhones Sleep Headphones
Fit in a nap anytime, anywhere with these soft sleep headphones. You can also use them at night to play white noise to block out the sounds of a snoring partner or pet. Plus, the soft headband can be pulled down over your eyes when you want an extra layer between you and the world.
9. Scalp Massager
It looks like a metal spider but it feels like a dream. This handy head massager is oh-so-relaxing and sends little tingles all over your scalp. It can help provide relief from headaches or take your mind off your cares for a minute or two. Plus, it’s small enough to keep in your desk drawer or glove compartment for a moment of zen on-the-go.
10. Da Bomb
Sometimes in life, all you can do is drop the F bomb. Finally, there’s a bath bomb for that. The F Bomb is a fun and fizzy lavender-scented bath bomb that contains a fun surprise inside. Make sure you hold on to this one while it dissolves so you don’t miss out on finding your treasure.
11. Coloring Books
Adult coloring books are a hot trend that’s not going anywhere because they really, truly, help you relax and feel better. I personally love to unwind with my favorite TV family, the Belchers, courtesy of my ‘Bob’s Burger’s’ coloring book, but there’s a wide world of grown-up coloring books out there. Choose one that suits your style and start coloring your cares away.
