It has been a stressful time in our country, so it’s no wonder many of us are eager to create calming rituals for ourselves at home. But with all that we’ve been juggling in our daily lives, and the landscape of how we are moving forward continuing to change week to week, it can get a bit hectic.
While the world seems to be a bit uncertain, it’s nice to carve out simple things to do for yourself to lift your spirits and bring a sense of calm. Having a daily ritual that makes you feel good or brings you joy or peace—even if for a few simple moments—can bring you much “ahhhhhhhhhh.”
Here are some of our favorite tools to help you create a peaceful, healing ritual of relaxation from home.
Beauty Everywhere has a beautiful box called I Am Love Kit, which includes a gorgeous 30-day journal for sharing your morning musings and evening reflections. It’s a great way to take a few minutes every day to sit and just write freely. The box also includes essential oil, a bracelet, and small cards to share with loved ones. The kit is all about manifesting love, whether you are looking to call in your soul mate, bring more love in your existing relationship, or build up your confidence.
LUSH has long been a go-to beauty brand for creating the ultimate bath experience. Their beautiful Bath Bombs are often multi-colored and offer a multisensory experience. The sound of the fizzing and effervescente scents quickly flow throughout the bathroom, and watching the bombs explode in a symphony of color is the ultimate satisfaction. No bathtub? No problem! Lush also features a beautiful collection of scrubs that will engage your senses and make you feel a million miles away from your very own bathroom.

There’s something very special about putting on a comfy, cozy robe that eases you right into a heavenly headspace of relaxation. Wrap yourself up in goodness with Farm to Home’s Organic Terry Cloth Robe. Take comfort knowing you can look good, feel good, and do good in the world as these are certified to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), the highest-level environmental criteria along the organic textiles supply chain (it requires compliance with social criteria as well).
Setting up a little spot in your house to meditate, pray, or do yoga is a nice way to bring Zen to any space. The Crystal Cove Square Meditation Pillow (pictured above) from Brentwood Home is not only beautiful, comfortable, and a good size, but it’s good for you too. It’s made with non-toxic, sustainable materials like a liner crafted from organic cotton and a buckwheat hull fill. And, with reinforced handles, its durability is unmatched.
It’s very easy for us to just fall into bed after a long day of holding your household together, working, and keeping the kids occupied. But when we get set to do our evening routine to brush our teeth and prep our skin for the night, don’t forget your body. Treat yourself well by spritzing on the beautiful Rahua Body Oil. This delicate mist is powerful, fast-absorbing, lightweight, and deeply hydrating. Its restorative formula boasts Omega-3 and Omega-9 fatty acids, antioxidants, carotenoids, and vitamins C and E, which work to repair, heal, and moisturize dry skin.
