Happy May! We’re officially in the swing of spring. With the school year coming to a close, summer vacation and camp planning underway, and the longer hours of sunlight encouraging us to spend more time outside, we might find ourselves a little overwhelmed by the busy-ness of life. Sometimes we need to remember to stop and smell the lotus! The items in this month’s box were selected to help you slow down and nourish your body and spirit. The May box includes:
Locally made Relaxation Eye Pillow: Sometimes we need to block out visual stimuli and give our eyes and minds a break. This soft and sweet, humble little eye pillow is locally made with up-cycled fabric scraps, flax seed and essential oils, and can be warmed or cooled as desired. It can relieve irritated eyes caused by too much exposure to computer or TV screens and also calm your mind. Light pressure on the eyes lowers heart rate and stimulates the vagus nerve, sending a neural signal directly to your brain and triggering a wave of relaxation throughout your body. Let this simple yet powerful tool for healing, health, and happiness be your new best friend for relieving stress and connecting to your spirit.
Aura Cacia Lavender Essential Oil Roller: Who doesn’t love lavender? One of the most versatile essential oils, it’s most commonly known for its calming and relaxing effects. In addition to soothing nervous tension, lavender is also great for repelling insects and soothing bug bites. This Soothing Lavender Roll-on from Aura Cacia combines the therapeutic power of pure lavender with skin-nourishing jojoba oil and coconut oil triglycerides. No animal testing, no synthetic fragrances, colors or stabilizers, paraben and petroleum free, and tested for purity. Keep this gentle and effective aromatherapy application with you for a quick breath of calm and to soothe irritated skin.
Amazing Grass Protein Superfood: Need a quick and nutritious meal for your life on the go? This organic, all-in-one protein nutrition shake thoughtfully combines a superfood blend of plant-based protein with farm fresh greens and nutrient-dense fruits and veggies. With a rich vanilla flavor and satisfying texture, it’s a convenient way to get the whole food nutrition your body needs with an amazing flavor your taste buds will love. Each serving promotes lean muscle, aids in digestion and satisfies hunger with 20 grams of complete plant-based protein, 7 alkalizing greens and 2 full servings of fruits and veggies. This is fast food you can feel good about!
We hope this month's will remind you to slow down, take a deep breath and be present to your life. Be sure to place your order for the June box by the 25th of May for some inspiration for fun in the sun! Get inspired, be happy, stay healthy!
Chocolove mini Dark Chocolate Bar: Chocolate = Love! Phenylethylamine (PEA) is a naturally occurring compound in chocolate that, when consume, releases endorphins in the brain and produces a mild feeling of euphoria, similar to the feeling of being in love. Other naturally occurring compounds in chocolate include serotonin, theobromine and anandamine, which elevate mood, increase circulation and enhance sensory perception. This strong, bittersweet Belgian dark chocolate from Chocolove is Non-GMO Project verified, contains 70% cacao and has a silky smooth taste. To make it even sweeter, each bar resembles a love letter, complete with a romantic poem. Consider this a love note to yourself when you need a little mood boost. Indulge and enjoy mindfully!
