Ritual: It’s time to choose yourself. Carve out time where you can tune out the noise and chaos of day-to-day life (and this past year), maybe turn on some music that reminds you of the warrior that you are or that inspires you to appreciate who you are fully. Switch on that “do not disturb” toggle on your phone and get ready to bask in a complete self love ritual.
A Whole Mood: Self-Love
First things first-Make yourself a cup of relaxingMasala Chai Tea.When you hear the whistle of the tea kettle and turn off the stove, let it remind you that it's time to switch off any lingering running thoughts. Pour hot water over the heavenly smell of cinnamon, cardamom and nutmeg spices, take a deep breath and give yourself a quick thank you for taking this time to yourself.
Draw a warm bath and pour in relaxingCBD Bath Soak, full of minerals and 500 mg of cbd powder- a savior to help with any aches and pains. Enjoy the soft floral jasmine notes or calming restorative lavender aromas. Find the surprise crystal hidden inside and before stepping in, set your intention or choose affirmations for the rest of your ritual.
Also, don’t forget to light...
- AVanilla Coconut Candle to create an atmosphere of paradise for yourself. The smell of pure, eco-friendly coconut soy wax and essential oils, sound of the crackling wick in a real Thailand coconut shell will invoke full release into relaxation.
- Sage is an absolute must for all self-care rituals. Burning rose sage brings spiritual cleansing to any negativity clouding your aura-which hinders self-love. Once you light it, close your eyes and let yourself be intuitively guided to purge any bad energy and purify your space.
- Incense to stimulate awareness of what you want to attract. One of the best ways you can care for yourself is to give presence and attentiveness to what you desire and choose for yourself. Align yourself to higher vibrations-the final piece for creating an atmosphere with purpose.
