🌟Read on for our list of fun, free, community-building resources that can be enjoyed from the comfort of your home 🌟
We hope that, if possible, you’re staying indoors, washing your hands, and feeling connected to a supportive community. It goes without saying: this week has been weird, and a lot of us are feeling off-center... Sometimes the world unveils a plot twist so disorienting, even our best habits get thrown for a loop.
It’s scary. We’re all allowed to admit it. But through it all, don’t forget to address yourself with love and affirmation. In putting the good of your community first, you must also be good to yourself.
Hand sanitizer has been in the spotlight, but we want to quickly shout out our favorite tools for calm-making. Stress squeezers, scented candles, back scratchers, jade rollers – whatever it may be, don’t be ashamed to show them extra love. Scent and sensation are incredibly grounding phenomenons, and taking a time-out to enjoy them can help you reclaim your inner-anchor.
If you’re curious about Eir items that could be of good use, we have a few humble suggestions:
Our Rolling Liniment is great for a quick reprieve. With the cooling touch of peppermint and camphor, it’s the perfect glide-on relief for your neck, shoulders, or anywhere else you might carry stress.
For all of our bath lovers out there, we recommend our Post Session Salts for a bite-sized spa experience. We formulated this with toxin-abating Himalayan sea salt and calming bergamot and ginger essential oils knowing they would feel miraculous at the end of a long day.
We love seeing our products in action, but a true antidote for anxiety could never be bottled and sold. A silver lining: the internet is a treasure trove of ingenious ideas and kind souls taking action against the threat of cabin fever…
To help you make the most of your time indoors, we rounded up these awesome, 100% free resources we’ve compiled from around the web. Please stay home and stay safe.
