It is time to make self-care a normal part of life for men. Why? Because they are worth it too! Inherently self-care has been centered around women. When we think of self-care, we often think of a woman with a face mask on in a bubble bath, maybe sipping a glass of bubbly alongside, or getting a relaxing massage in a candle lit room. The media markets self-care as a necessity for women and often overlooks the need for the men in our lives.
Self-care is for everyone and is not gender inclusive. Self-care is simply the act of taking time to focus on yourself. A time to relax and recharge for the days ahead. Everyone needs these moments to refill their battery for life and everyone deserves these moments for themselves.
Vital You has created their ‘For Him’ bundle perfect for the men in our lives. After all, who can say no to a gift of self-care and relaxation? The bundle has everything men need to unwind and relax, including a bath bomb crafted specifically to boost male vitality. In addition to the bath bomb, there is a choice between a delicious Old Fashioned cocktail mix or their Deep Relief salve, the perfect ally for aching muscles and mental stress to complete the bundle.
The Dusk bath bomb is one that will convince anyone that baths can be relaxing, soothing, and needed. With 200mg of CBD it is packed with the soothing and healing powers of CBD, relaxing the body and soothing inflammation after a long day. Crafted specifically for men, the bath bomb is infused with a proprietary blend of nutritive herbs known to support male vitality and wellness. It has a deep alluring earthy blend of essential oils that makes you feel like you are deep in the forest while relaxing in the tub. Additionally, the bath bomb has a root chakra blend of flower essence helping one to feel grounded and ready to take on life's challenges. This bath bomb will soak away the long day and aid your loved one to get ready for the days ahead.
The Strongwater Old Fashioned cocktail syrup is so delicious you can drink it on its own or pair it with your favorite whiskey, rye, rum, or bourbon. Strongwater worked on their recipe many years, crafting it to perfection to create the granddaddy of cocktails. Fun fact; the Old Fashioned was one of the first known examples of combining spirits with bitters and sugars to create a stunning drink, more delicious than the individual parts. The syrup has caramel notes of organic demerara sugar, the citrus tang of an orange peel, and a tart sweetness of organic cherries, all rounded out with a nutty and complex blend of cinnamon, clove, cardamom, and bitter herbs. This mix is sure to please the cocktail lover in your life.
Lastly, but certainly not least, you can choose to include a deep relief salve in your bundle. This salve great for aching joints and muscles after a long hard day and could even be a great addition to an at home couples' massage. Formulated to ease muscle tension and sore muscles, the salve leaves you deeply relaxed. It has 200mg of CBD, perfectly blended with essential oils that provide additional relief and benefits including frankincense and rosemary. With menthol crystals, the salve has a cooling burst when applied, soothing the muscles it touches, and a relaxing blend of arnica and comfrey botanicals are added to ensure the deepest level of relaxation.
The ‘For Him’ bundle has everything a man needs and deserves to relax and take much needed time for themselves. This year let's give the men in our lives a bundle specifically for their self-care.
