5 Holiday Must-Haves

Posted By Mariana

Its the year 2020, and I dare say holiday season gift-giving is not cancelled. But what to give this year - that is the question.

The holidays are fast-approaching, and despite everything that has happened this year, it gives us more reason to take self-care more seriously. Many people have been deeply affected by the global pandemic, either through sickness, death, or financial strain. The stress is overwhelming, and we cant help but empathize with everyone that is suffering.

Amidst everything that has happened, it would stand to reason that we treat ourselves, family and friends, during this holiday season. Not only as is dictated by tradition, but as a testament of hope-that things will get better.

To get into the spirit of things, we rounded up the best products to give as gifts to your special someone for this years holiday season. Let's take a look at these must-have items!

1. Herbivore Botanicals Calm Ylang Ylang + Vanilla Soaking Salts 

As we spend many days and long hours in our homes during this pandemic, we search for ways to unwind and recharge. One space that can provide the relaxation we crave is the bathroom. A simple bath does wonders to improve our mood and skin. Soaking with a bath salt such as
Herbivore Botanicals Calm Ylang Ylang + Vanilla Soaking Salts is a sure way to calm your frayed nerves. The pale Himalayan pink-white salt infuses the bathwater with minerals. While the aromatherapeutic blend of Ylang-Ylang, a soft tropical flora is known as the "flower of flowers" proves to be an intoxicating aroma. At the same time, Vanilla calms the senses and the mind for a truly refreshing bath experience. Getting out of the tub will prove to be tricky once you indulge in these soaking salts and let the cares of the world drift away.
