A good self-care subscription box can really help to make self-care easy, accessible and will also serve as a monthly reminder to get your self-care on.
In today's blog post, I'm sharing the best self-care subscription boxes that I've found on the market. I factor in three things: quantity, quality and price. When those three things align, I think the box is worth checking out.
The benefit of a self-care subscription box
One of my favorite ways to grow my collection of self-care and spiritual items is through self-care subscription boxes. A few months ago I shared my favorite witchy subscription boxes, which is how I've collected the majority of my crystals, essential oils and sprays, candles and incense.
My self-care routine is how I connect with myself, ground and manage feelings such as anxiety. You don't need much to practice self-care–I started out with just a candle and a journal–but self-care tools and items do help with inspiration for practicing self-care.
And who doesn't love a gift in the mail every month?
The best self-care subscription boxes
I decided to scan the market for self-care subscription boxes and share my favorites here. For me, self-care is more than just some pretty items. The boxes below are the ones that I found to have substantial tools that could truly aid in the implementation of self-care.
I really like how this box seems to come with a lot of usable items every month without being expensive. I also like that they seem to focus on lots of aromatherapy products, which I always use to help ground and de-stress myself.
