Self-care … in a luxe box

What is self-care?  It’s a general term that describes everything you do deliberately for your mental, physical, spiritual, social and emotional well-being. As simple as it sounds, many of us pay little attention to self-care. This is why ‘deliberately’ is one of the most important words in the definition. You need to be conscious of your well-being before you can achieve true self-care. It starts with simple acts … not checking emails at night when you know it affects your sleep, enjoying a cup of tea alone before everyone wakes up, and extends to more important decisions like practicing mindfulness daily, going away for the weekend or booking a massage when you feel you need one.

It’s easy enough to say … not always so easy to put into practice. There’s always, it seems, an impending deadline, a child’s attention, a friend who needs help.

Hello Sanctum Self-Care, which makes the art of self-care easy by bringing it right to your home. It’s a box carefully curated with a new theme each month … a box filled with full-size eco-luxury products plus a few samples and a lifestyle activity. You can choose a Luxe option (five or more products) or an Essential box (three or more products). And the products are really sensational. In the first Self Love box, there’s a sensational scented candle, a bottle of Rose Tonic and one of ylang ylang, neroli and jasmine body oil, a fynbos body scrub and bath soap, a slow beauty collection and a hair voucher, as well as affirmation cards and samples.

“As a mother with a demanding career, I craved the opportunity to take time-out. When there was a spare 30 minutes, I would either feel too guilty to take a break because there was always something to be done, or would spend the time scrolling aimlessly through social media. I  just didn’t know where to start. So the idea of receiving a box every month, that basically says – ‘here, take me, this has been made for you and only you, try us, you’ll be a new you in half-an-hour’ – seemed like a welcome solution”, says  Sanctum Self-Care co-founder, Liza-Jane Saban.

The Essentials box costs R599 (valued at R1700), the Luxe Box R895 (value of R2200), and you can buy a one off (fabulous gift for anyone who needs a little self-care), or subscribe for three, six or twelve months, giving you a regular spoil and a monthly reminder to be consistently reminded to take time for yourself.  For details and subscriptions, visit www.sanctumselfcare.com
