Regular, consistent self-care is a game changer. In this post, I’ll be sharing the ultimate list of self-care subscription boxes that will inspire you to incorporate more self-care time into your schedule.
The benefit of self-care subscription boxes
One of my favorite ways to grow my collection of self-care and spiritual items is through 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?
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.
Site description: Each box includes research inspired therapeutic activities to wire your brain for more joy plus 5 to 7 self-care wellness goodies to reduce stress & enhance your life. We aim to inspire more love & happiness in every box through mindfully curated products to feed your mind, body, and soul. For all finders & seekers of an inspired life.
How many items per box: 5 to 7 consciously crafted, natural, organic, or artisan self-care wellness goodies to promote relaxation and wellbeing.
Delivered: ships at the end of the month

I am all about the hygge life! Cozy, slow, reflective, bliss…are the words I associate with hygge.
Site description: Hygge is the Danish lifestyle of coziness and happiness. It is about preserving happiness everyday by slowing down, being humble, expressing gratitude, feeling safe, and connecting with loved ones. This subscription box is for anyone seeking to bring hygge into their home and life. Each box includes seasonal handpicked items to inspire and evoke hygge.

I have been learning so much about the energy of crystals over the last year and I definitely include crystals into my self-care routine. You can hold them, lay them on your body, or put them in the bath with you (not all crystals can go in water though). They help with so many things but I especially am drawn to the grounding stones and gems.
Site description: A curated selection of crystals and minerals sourced from around the world. We offer two different subscriptions: The single specimen Crystal of the Month plan or the multiple Crystal Variety Box. Each plan includes a bonus assortment of mini crystals and minerals. Every crystal is hand-selected with care and intention each month.
How many items per box: the smaller box comes with one main crystal a month plus mini crystals or a cloth pouch | the larger box comes with 4-8 crystals a month and a handmade cloth grid, plus the mini crystals or a cloth pouch.
Cost: Crystal of the Month box is $16 | Crystal Variety box is $58

I like the items this box sends and it seems carefully curated. I also really love that they feature items made from woman-owned businesses.
Site description: For any woman in need of some pampering and a reminder to pause and unwind. She will receive a beautifully-presented and specially-curated box with 5 items such as high-quality spa/beauty products, indulgent goodies, & much more.
How many items per box: 5 high-quality items

If I had to choose a box out of all the ones I have listed here, this one might be it. It’s got self-care apothecary items along with crystals or incense and a meditation card. I feel like the creators of this box really focus on the importance and ritual of consistent self-care.
Site description: Our mission is better woman and better earth. The Sage Woman Care Package (and smaller option– Holy Wellness Care Package) is a monthly wellness subscription care package with natural and organic seasonal goods for body, spirit and daily practice. Herbal goodness, women-makers + ritual for self care–it’s a monthly reminder to refill your cup.
How many items per box: The smaller box comes with 2 apothecary items, mini incense pack or crystals and a monthly mediation card | the larger box comes with 5-7 full size and deluxe items.

The Incense Box
The Incense Box
Update: This box was canceled as of September 2018. Their supplier actually passed away and they were no longer able to continue since the new supplier charged so much more. I’m going to be trying this new incense box, Karma Scents, and will report back!
I like that this box is focused solely on baths and they send quite a few items. A long bath can truly be a chance to completely unwind and relax your body.
Site description: Bath Bevy is a subscription box for the bath lover. We deliver a high-quality selection of bath products to your door every month. Subscribe to receive bath products so tantalizing that they will pull you out of your daily grind and into the tub. Just add water.
How many items per box: 6-10 items per box
Rating: 5 stars out of 95+ reviews
I really, really like this box because it comes with tools to implement personal growth! Plus I am huge into reading personal growth books. I attribute so much of my mindset success to keeping these types of books on my nightstand.
Site description:This community is for the self-help loving, personal growth devoted woman who is on a mission to be the best damn version of herself she can be. Receive a thoughtfully curated box each month that helps you to put the ideas from the book into action. Join our virtual book club & online community.
How many items per box: the first option comes with a book and either a workbook for the month or a webinar; the second option comes with the book plus self-care items and tools; the third option comes with everything plus a one hour group coaching call. I would go for the middle option, personally.
Cost: the Go Love Yourself Essentials box is $30 | the Go Love Yourself box is$49.95 | the Group Coaching box is $75

I like this box because in addition to self-care items being sent, there’s a focus on yoga and fitness as well. They also send some beauty items which I like.
Site description: We all could use an extra dose of living mindfully and practicing self-care in our everyday routines—which is why we created the Feeling Fab box. Let us be your guide to living an authentic lifestyle despite the everyday stress. FFB will give you the raw materials and encouragement to make a little more time for yourself.

This box caught my eye because I’m an introvert and love the idea for a box like this! It’s essentially a box that sends a book with self-care items to help you just tune out the world and introvert.
Site description:Get away from it all and recharge your introverted social batteries with Introverts Retreat. All boxes feature a novel plus self-care items, treats and gifts that are perfect for your time alone.

I was hesitant to share two bath boxes but I think they’re different enough from each other and too awesome to leave either one off the list. This box has a more spiritual and natural feel to it, which I’m really drawn to.
Site description: Salty Bath offers a unique, monthly self-care service that is carefully designed to help you relax and rejuvenate. Every month our subscribers receive a quintessential bath-in-a-box experience that lets them discover total relaxation. Each box includes a curated mix of our all-natural bath and body essentials and artisanal delights for the soul.
How many items per box: 5-6 full sized items
Rating: 5 stars out of 11+ reviews
Those were my top picks out of all of the self-care boxes I checked out. I’ll keep this post updated every month and will add new quality boxes as I find them. I hope you enjoyed reading this post and please leave me a comment below if there’s a self-care box you love that I left off the list.
Lots of love,
