FLOWER MILL | CALMING CHAMOMILE MASK
Treat yourself to a much-deserved facial and turn your bathroom into a temporary oasis of aromatherapy with the Calming Chamomile Mask from Flower Mill. Suitable for sensitive skin types, this must-have mask thoughtfully combines white kaolin clay with chamomile and calendula flowers which help hydrate, strengthen, and soothe skin as pores are being cleared. Made with the most gentle form of Kaolin clay, this mask is a powerhouse as it still takes on the task of heavy-lifting by helping to draw out dirt, grime and blackheads. Chamomile meanwhile has anti-inflammatory properties and is one of the most important herbal ingredients for sensitive skin as it does wonders to help soothe irritation. The answer to the respite-seeking maskers dilemma– this mask smooths on easily and slightly tingles as it sits on skin as if to remind you to sit still and not touch it as it clears and tightens your pores!
YOUR TEA | WELLNESS BOX or MINI MAKEOVER BOX
We’re always on the lookout for ways to revamp your wellness routine. This season, let’s take care of your body with favored blends for a prosperous mind, body and soul. An Australian company bringing traditional herbal medicine back to the 21st century, Your Tea’s every blend is created by qualified traditional medicine practitioners and accompanied by endless health resources to complement this restorative herbal journey. Your Tea creates their blends based on an ancient modality that acknowledges the mind, body, and soul as one unit. The food we eat. The words we say. The way we move. The thoughts we think. The universal energies we live amongst. Energy flows through our bodies in the form of “Qi” and to be healthy, our energetic system must be in harmony. The nourishment we receive from food goes deeper than just fueling our bodies and these blends from Your Tea are created specifically for different times of the day (or night) to combat your different body needs. Let this be a jump start to your own highway to harmonic health!
DR. BOTANICALS | LEMON SUPERFOOD ALL-IN-ONE RESCUE BUTTER

Imported all the way from London to help alleviate your skin’s SOS, the Lemon Superfood All-in-One Rescue Butter is a multi-use, high-performance botanical body balm that works three ways: as a moisturizer, as a treatment or as a cleanser. Made with a 96% natural formula packed full of minerals, antioxidants and vitamins including Lemongrass, this wonder balm features antioxidant protection which helps soothe and replenish dry skin. The perfect evening ritual for restoring health back into skin in need of extra healing, this balm goes on smooth and soaks right in without clogging pores + it’s vegan and cruelty-free!

The Brilliant Organic Charcoal Toothpaste is a fresh-tasting fluoride-free blend of high-quality, activated charcoal, which works to help brighten your pearly whites. This organic charcoal teeth whitening toothpaste also combines coconut and tea tree oils to remove plaque build-up, combat bacteria, and promote healthy oral care.

TUB TONICS | DIVINATION SOAKING SALTS
We’re big fans of bathing, especially after a long day to celebrate a job well done. There’s nothing quite relaxing like lighting up a few candles, pouring yourself a glass of red wine and soaking in a tub of warm water — especially with divine bath salts! Transform your bath time (or detox foot bath, if you don’t have a tub) into a buoyant sea of relaxation. The Divination Soaking Salts are created to enhance your senses with an aromatic blend sandalwood + sage and the skin softening sensation of select soaking salts. Sage melts layers of tension away and sets the mood for relaxation while sandalwood helps reduce anxiety and stresses after a long day. Sandalwood has also been known to have healing properties that cures coughs, indigestion and even insomnia! Truly a calming salt blend that will give you a sense of well being and tranquility while softening and rejuvenating your body — a winning combo if you ask us!
AROMATIC MINT LIP SALVE
Ever reapply a lip balm all week long, then realize later that your lips are still chapped and it makes absolutely no sense? Or experienced a minor lip rash after switching balm brands? More than just a dry lip savior, a lip salve that pampers your lips, leaving soft, fresh and moisturized, the Aromatic Mint Salve combines organic coconut oil and beeswax with high quality oil to keep your lips supple and hydrated. This lip salve goes on smoothly and while there are some days when you might want ultra-pigmented balms, sometimes there’s nothing better than a barely-there salve that enhances the natural color of your moisturized lips.
SWEET CHEF | KALE + VITAMIN B FRESH PRESSED SHEET MASK
Riddle us this trendy leafy green isn’t just a nutritious addition for your green juice, smoothies & salad, but it’s also super good for your skin-care routine.

Superfood antioxidant- and nutrient-rich Kale contains skin-loving phytonutrients and vitamins C, E, and K that naturally calms the skin, Vitamin B which strengthens the skin’s natural barrier, and anti-inflammatory aloe barbadensis flower extract which soothes and moisturizes. Oh and this mask is vegan, sensitive-skin approved, cruelty-free and doesn’t contain any harsh shenanigans quenching your skin has never been so easy and leafy!
THE HAPPY SHOPPE | MORE SELF LOVE JOURNAL
020 has taken all of us for a wild ride. In what may have felt like a blink of an eye, the world shifted dramatically, unexpectedly and overwhelmingly. Emotions may still run high in the midst of these unpredictable times. It’s not at all easy and neither should it be. Moments like these may bring up feelings of loneliness, sadness, grief, despair, anger and it literally can take a physical toll on just about any of us. We all have such different needs during this time and we are all navigating our lives the best way we can. It’s important more than ever to be still and recognize that what you are currently feeling is valid. Feel your feelings and when you’re ready, channel those energies to focus on yourself. Use this time to take care of you. Be gentle with your body and mind and breathe through your fears or anxieties. Find ways to stay positive and create small moments of joy. Get cozy, take lots of naps, move slowly and enjoy the stillness, practice 10-minute daily meditations or sing and dance ‘til your lungs give up! Whatever it looks like for you, let yourself be and focus on what you need. When you become aware that you have unique needs and goals, you discover how to better accept and love yourself. Loving yourself can feel like a long journey―but you’re not alone. A pilgrimage for anyone who has ever lost their way or anyone looking to start a compassionate and loving journey to reclaim their authentic self, our custom-designed More Self Love Journal is rooted in prompts and practices proven to build self-esteem and reduce self-doubt. Within these pages are topics dedicated to establishing routine, introspection and trackers to aid in your journey of self discovery and self-care. This journal will help you identify obstacles in the way of healthy self-love and unearth and explore the deepest, truest best parts of ourselves — an easy to follow and inspiring way to chronicle your own journey to creating more self-compassion and self-understanding. Go through the pages and enjoy the journey. Looking for light in everything does not mean seeing how everything will suddenly be perfect or easy. Looking where the light pours in is realizing what a gift it is to be alive, once again. Open your heart and embrace new discoveries about yourself. Deepen your understanding and develop your self-love practice. Even in uncertainty, you have the capacity for love. There is such power in the small decisions we make and the accumulation of these decisions always create big-picture changes.

THE HAPPY SHOPPE CO | PAMPER TIME CARD DECK
Pampering yourself is one of those things you know you’re supposed to do consistently to avoid burnout- but when it comes to actually getting around to it, we often but it on the back burner. If your schedule is seriously busy, it might seem hopeless to somehow squeeze in a little “me” time. That’s where the challenge comes in, because the busier you are, the more important self-care becomes. It turns out there are simple things you can do to jumpstart a self-pampering mindset amidst the hustle and bustle of daily work life, even on the especially-busy days. It doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive, but it does require another valuable resource: time. There’s no other way around it. If you want to take a break from it all and indulge in your own little world of bliss, you need to set aside time, even if it is just a few minutes a day.Self-care means putting yourself first from time to time and putting a pause on work, obligations and caring for others. It’s like operating a machine; it needs to be tuned up regularly for it to be able to function effectively and serve its purpose. Think of self-care as like a do-it-yourself regular tune-up for your mind, body and spirit.
