Caring Crate Review February 2018
Caring Crate is a unique, monthly subscription box service for those dealing with mental health issues, chronic illnesses – or anyone who needs a little extra self-care. From mood enhancing aromatherapy and teas, to personal journals and healthy snacks, Caring Crate is the perfect solution to indulging in a little self-care, or gifting a thoughtfully curated box to friends, family & loved ones. They kindly sent us this box for review.
Caring Crate is one of those feel-good boxes. It’s based around the idea of self-care, and we could all use a little more of that. Am I right? It’s a box focused on well-being and it provides you with a few little goodies each month that will make you feel pampered and will entice you to slow down and look after yourself. What’s not to love?!
From the website:
Our care crates are curated to give you the “tools” for self-care.
Each box subscription offered by Caring Crate includes a carefully curated selection of products. From healthy snacks and wellness products, to journals and aromatherapy, there’s a little something for everyone in every Caring Crate box.
Unlike other box subscription services, Caring Crate is focused entirely on your well-being. We skip the roundup of one-use products and instead provide you with the “tools” you need to care for your own well-being. Think of it as a gift to yourself, sans guilt.
When you sign up for a Caring Crate subscription you can choose from the following options:
- Monthly-to-Month Subscription
- 3-months Subscription
- 6-month Subscription
- Gift Subscription
Here’s a closer look at the items we received in the February box…..
Urban Forest Apothecary Magicknesium Body Spray
Magnesium is a mineral that helps to calm muscle tension and cramps, promote relaxation and can be helpful in easing you off to sleep. This body spray is one of the easiest ways to apply magnesium, plus it’s soothing to the skin and has the calming scent of lavender and marjoram essential oils.
I always knew magnesium was an important mineral, and I’ve been known to take it as a supplement from time to time. But I never thought of using it as a spray. This is genius. I absolutely love the idea of this spray. This is an item I will be keeping in my bedside table.
Heavenly Hot Packs Hand Warmers
For when you need soothing warmth, these hand warmers do the trick. Place them in your mittens or coat pockets, or use them as individual eye pads or to apply targeted heat to sore areas. They can also be placed in the freezer to use as cold packs.
How stinkin’ cute are these little hand warmers. Buffalo check is one of my favorite patterns. There’s just something so cozy and comfy about it. I can definitely see myself using these for my next movie night. You can even use them as foot warmers. Simply heat for 1-3 minutes and enjoy the warmth.
Is it Bath Time Yet? Oatmeal Coconut Milk Bath
Ease yourself into a warm and soothing milk bath! Made with oatmeal, this bath soak is gentle enough to use on even the driest of winter skin.
In keeping with the cozy theme here we have a wonderful little bag of milk bath. Nothing says cozy like a warm bath and a good book. It’s been a while since I took the time to relax in the bath. It’s something I really enjoy but don’t do often enough.
Domo COCO Organic Hot Chocolate
Made with all-natural and high quality ingredients, this delicious hot chocolate contains antioxidant organic cocoa and organic raw cacao. Gluten-free, GMO-free, and soy-free.
Lastly we have a delicious hot chocolate mix. It’s all the things I love – organic, vegan, non-GMO, and gluten-free. I like to make a cup of coconut milk hot chocolate as a treat every now and then so this will definitely come in handy.
Caring Crate Review February 2018 – Final Thoughts
Caring Crate did a really lovely job with the February box. They went with a cozy/comfy theme and that makes me really happy. It’s still pretty cold where I live and I’m at the point where I need a little extra motivation to get through the last little bit of winter. I find it much easier to survive dark mornings and cold days when I have a few products that help me enjoy a cozy evening in. it gives me something to look forward to and makes me appreciate this time of year. Spring and Summer are a little easier to endure if you deal with mental health issues, but Winter isn’t so easy. It’s nice to have a few self-care items specific to the cooler months so I appreciate the items Caring Crate has put together for us this month. I kind of want to test out the hand warmers right now……accompanied by a warm cup of cocoa.
