Winter Self-Care, Herbal Chai + A Giveaway!

[GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!!!! Thank you to everyone who entered, and congrats to Kelly Rose Heath for winning!]

I’m SO excited to be partnering with one of my favorite people on this post and giveaway. Max of Roots & Crowns is literally one of the kindest, most warm-hearted people I know. She’s wildly talented and her line of herbal apothecary goods is one of my absolute favorites. We teamed up this holiday season to bring you all an amazing Douglas Fir Chai recipe, a DIY Immune-Supporting Bath Salt recipe and an AMAZING giveaway. One lucky person will win the Ultimate Winter Self-Care Kit that includes:

TO ENTER:

Contest closes on Tuesday, December 12, 2017 at 11:59PM PST. Winner will be chosen and announced on Wednesday, December 13, 2017.

Adaptogenic Douglas Fir Chai
[Makes 2 16 oz chai lattes]

32 oz (4 cups) of hot water
1 1/2 Tablespoons Roots & Crowns Doug Fir Chai
3 Tablespoons coconut butter
1 Tablespoon tocos
1 teaspoon reishi
1/2 teaspoon ashwagandha
Optional: 1 teaspoon raw honey

  1. Using a tea strainer and jar, or just a large mason jar and mesh sieve, steep chai covered for 10 minutes. [Covering while steeping allows for a deeper, richer flavor.] Strain out tea and reserve liquid.
  2. In a high-speed blender, blend chai liquid and all other ingredients on high for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Pour into mugs, sprinkle with cinnamon and enjoy!

From Max:

Winter is the season of going inward. Of short days and long nights. It’s a time when comfort and warmth are necessary elements of self-care. Here are some of my favorite winter self-care tips:

1.) Bring the Heat: Whether it’s fires in the fireplace, lighting lots of candles, warm baths, going to the sauna, drinking warm beverages, or cooking with warmer/spicier ingredients – follow your body’s wisdom when it comes to telling you what you can do to nurture the warmth during the cold season.

2.) Mind Your Body: It’s easy to become a little more physically stagnant during the winter months because there’s more of a lethargic energy surrounding daylight and the liveliness of the natural world, but keep moving. Bundle up and get some fresh air. Sweat it out.

3.) But Also, Embrace Rest: Winter is definitely a time for being more introspective and reflective. It’s ok not to feel as social and extend yourself as much as you would do in the lighter months. Just as we see the animals getting quieter and going into hibernation, our spirits crave that slower living during this time as well!

Baths with mineral salts are an age-old remedy for soothing sore muscles, healing skin conditions, improving circulation, and speeding up recovery from illnesses. This bath salt recipe is extra warming and immune-supporting. The oils included will help uplift the spirits, open airways for deeper breathing, and also add an anti-microbial, anti-viral aspect of protection for you against seasonal germs.

DIY Warming, Immune-Supporting Bath Salts
[Makes an 8 oz jar]

4 oz epsom salts
4 oz Dead Sea salts*
Essential oils of Rosemary, Eucalyptus, Clove, Lemon
1/2 Tablespoon oil (such as Jojoba, Coconut or Sweet Almond)
8 oz glass jar or metal tin

  1. In a large mixing bowl, add the two different salts.
  2. In a separate small bowl, mix jojoba, coconut or sweet almond oil, then add one drop at a time of the essential oils as follows: 2 drops Eucalyptus, 1 drop Rosemary, 1 drop Clove, 1 drop lemon. Mix well.
  3. Combine oils with salts and mix well so that the oils disperse appropriately.

[Note: I recommend a full 8 oz. of salts for a nice bath, and even sometimes indulge in a double recipe with 16 oz. of salts for an even more luxurious bath. When running the bath, pour the salts through the running water and let them dissolve.]

*Dead Sea salts have over 21 minerals in them and are extra yummy for your skin, but if you can’t find Dead Sea salts, you can use 8 oz of epsom salts instead.

My favorite self-care ritual is to take a long hot bath after work every Friday. It’s a really nice way to unwind before the weekend, and helps me stay in the mindset of taking care of myself as I go about my weekend plans.
That being said, I’d love to try the Forest Bath and the Rose Face serum from Roots & Crowns. All these products look dreamy though!

I have to choose three because I just can’t narrow it down to two! I would loooove to try the “rest well,” I currently sleep in a cloud of lavender essential oil. Then ofcourse I want to try the chai. I have been very into milks/hot drinks recently, must be the weather. And finally, I would LOVE to try the coco – confessions of a chocoholic…

I do self care sundays (even though self care should be done daily). That consists of a coconut/ argan/ jojoba hair mask, Amy organic greens powder I use in smoothies as a face mask (powder and a little water until it is the right texture) and I just moved into a new house with a BATH!!!! That being said any of the bath salts (the floral on looked amazing) would be the highlight of my next Sunday! The other product I would love to try is the Rose Face serum from Roots & Crowns. All these products look absolutely dreamy though! Ps already follow all you beauties

There is so much I would like to try by Roots and Crowns, but I feel I would use the You’re Okay Mineral Bath Salts, You’re Okay Roll on and the Roots & Crowns Doug Fir Chai Tea Blend the most. The bath salts would be great in the tub after hiking through the woods or even just a long day at work. The Roll on would become somewhat of a centering ritual mantra I could incorporate into a busy day as it would help remind me to stay in the present moment and not get ahead of myself. Lastly, a homemade chai sounds like the ultimate self-care luxury!

My favorite self-care ritual is to immerse myself in a forest and hike deep into the woods to deepen my connection to the life force energy on this planet and in all living things. Excercise is medicinal and mediation for me; it calms me, centers me and helps me recharge for whatever dreams or goals I’m working towards. I was already following Alison from @alison__wu & Max from Roots and Crowns but, in addition, I’ve followed those required for entry and am looking forward to continuing my Instagram journey with the other recommended accounts!

Reply
Allison Burt-Tilden December 6, 2017 - 5:54 pm

My favorite self care ritual is to go to bed on time. It may sound simple but investing in time for true relaxation and rest is huge and so often I let it take a back seat in importance. As winter approaches, I have been much better about getting in bed early enough to do some reading and turn the lights out when I know I should. I also never bring my phone to bed with me!
As for Roots and Crowns, I’ve love to try their Doug Fir Chai (it’s so hard to find herbal chais!) and Forest Remedy. It’s so hard to make myself spend time outdoors when the temperature drops and I feel like Forest Remedy could be a good substitute.

I’m currently a premed student and have put a lot of effort into finding self care rituals so that my life is not run by stress. My favorite self care ritual starts with me doing something physical that clears my mind, this usually means yoga but sometimes it’s just going on a walk outside and listening to my favorite podcast. Then I make a big mug of stress relief tea and run a hot bath with Epsom salts and essential oils. Add in some magical soothing music and all my worries float away.
I loved checking out Roots & crowns website! They’re herbal first aid kit for being on the road seems like a game changer to me and is especially appealing because I have upcoming travel plans. I would also love to try to stress relieving mineral bath salt soak- seems like it would fit well into my self care routine!

Reply
Samantha Eberhardt December 6, 2017 - 5:57 pm

My favorite winter self care ritual involves watching a movie in the morning! Preferably by the fire with a warm tonic and my breakfast. It sounds silly to watch a movie in the morning but I normally work outside all day (I’m a flower farmer) and staying inside to do something so decandent on my rare days off puts me in an amazing mood! I would love to try Roots & Crowns Doug Fir Chai and the Breathe chest rub! Or any of the bath salts to soothe my achy farmer’s body. (P.S. I follow everyone on Instagram)!

The cocoa dust and the sea buckthorne cleanser look so amazing. Natural and aesthetic. My favorite self care ritual is to wake up early, make a cup of coffee, and just sit and read for a few minutes in the morning. With my cat of course. Reading whatever I want, whatever I am feeling that day. Every day is different, and I love having this flexible routine in the mornings to let my mind warm up and my soul be happy.

Ahh forgot the part about self-care ritual!! My favorite self-care plan is very introspective. I take time to reflect on my day/life/mindset and figure out what needs more care and love. Then, i journal about it to make a plan to move forward. I find that being my own listener provides guaranteed action and trust.

My favorite self care ritual is right before I go to bed, when I write 3 things I’m gratefulfor that day.

Salutations! My absolute favorite self care ritual when I’m having a bad day or a really good one or one that’s in between is to wash my face with my roots&crowns rose serum magic, put on this very specific comfiest outfit, and go explore the woods behind my house. I live next to Marquam Nature area in Portland and there is something about the air out there. It’s crisp no matter the temperature and so rejuvenating to my skin, body, and soul. After that, I usually come home and take an epsom salt+lavender and other essentials I’m feeling that day bath, followed by tea and time to reflect without being distracted by my phone or the internet. Seems to do the trick every time ✨
The item I’m dying most to try is the Ritual Oil now that it’s been released on its own!!! I’ve also been wanting to try the new shimmer stick because well glitter<3

The adaptogens in their cocoa dust will keep me healthy and strong through this stressful time.

Once a week I do a face mask too 🙂 Thank you for your daily inspiration and wisdom Alison!

My favorite self care ritual is my morning routine. I wake up around 4:30 am and spend the next few hours journaling, meditating, doing yoga, and drinking a quiet cup of tea or coffee before my daughter wakes up. One thing I’ve learned is how vital and important it is for me to have a bulk of alone time as a person in order to be fully present for others as a mom and a full time special education teacher so this morning ritual is my daily vitamin :).

My favorite self care ritual is slowing down. I think all too often we praise being busy, but being busy is easy. Slowing down is hard. Especially as we move into winter, it’s a season for turning inward. So, I’ve been blocking time out of my patient schedule to allow me to stay in bed a little bit longer or to read a book or do a face mask with some wine and a bath! Whatever it is that feels right to me at the time.

I would love to try Root & Crowns’ moon herbal remedy for cramps, mood, and all uncomfy PMS symptoms. I specialize in women’s health and I would love to support my patients with this healing tonic. I would also love the beloved sensual mineral bath salts!

Blues Away and Moon. Favorite self care ritual is taking a warm bath with essential oils and epsom salt at the end of each day. With a good book, candles and beautiful music. This helps me to wind down, I also do a little before bed meditation in the tub. It saves my mental and physical health.

Max has been a huge inspiration as far as digging into my roots, so happy to have a chance to enter this giveaway and follow along and learn from you ladies ❤️
My self care ritual is always rolling out my mat. Doesn’t matter what happens after, but as soon as I step onto the mat, I feel bliss.

My favorite self care routine is a herbal face steam, diy face mask, bubble bath and a bottle of Vino! I really try and do this once a week. It’s a reminder that it’s OK to treat yourself, we work hard and we earn a little TLC. The two products I’d love to try from Roots & Crown are the Rose face serum and the you’re OK bath salt (or any bath salt really) I feel they would help aid my stress and help me unwind and feel amazing! Thank you so much xo love from Hamilton, ON

As a philosophy student studying ancient Chinese thinkers, I learned the great importance of Li (ritual). I believe that following ritual practices across all facets of our lives enables us to cherish our relationships with others and ourselves.

I enjoy drawing a bath, slipping in some therapie Himalayan detox salts, sipping a cup of chai tea, and reading something to open my mind to new ideas – right now I’m reading The Meditations of Marcus Aurelius.

I would love to try the Forest Bath: Mineral Rich Therapeutic Woodsy Bath Soak & Doug Fir Chai.

May everyone enjoy their self-care rituals and think of expanding on them!

My favorite thing as of late is dry brushing. I do that before I shower at night then follow up with a lavender lotion. Makes me so relaxed. Although now that I’ve started jade rolling (Per your discount!) thats creeping up to the top of my favorites list.

After peeking the Roots & Crowns site I’d be interested to check out are the Fire Elixir and the Rose Face Serum.

Winter-time!! I love it but my skin hates it. Self-care includes dry-brushing, moisturizing like crazy, and quick baths in not-too-hot water (or else I get dried out). I usually like to go outdoors for walks and hikes, but now that it’s getting colder, I’ve joined a yoga studio where I am trying different styles of yoga for the first time and being more consistent in my meditation practice. Finally, part of my self-care is surrounding myself with the company of loved ones so I enjoy bringing people together for festivities, gift-exchanges, and good wholesome food.

I would love to try the “You’re Okay” bundle especially because I’m coming up on some really challenging parts of my educational training/career development. I also think the “Forest Remedy” would be awesome — I’ve never had a chance to visit the Pacific Northwest but I really want to. The description sounds lovely and puts me in the winter-time mood!

Taking a bath is definitely my top self care ritual. I have an extra long (old style) tub, so no knees stick out, I can stretch fully out in the tub. I’m in the middle of moving to a new apartment and was so lucky to find another apartment with the same size extra long tub. I can’t wait until the move is done, and I can soak in my new tub. I usually keep a variety of bath salts on hand. I like to put a little bit of bubbles into my salt bath, so it’s a little more fun. Lighting a few scented candles, having a glass of wine.
I’d love to try the Forest Bath and the Beloved perfume oil, they both sound delightful!

Thanks to you, I’ve been following Roots and Crowns for a few weeks now and her products look incredible! I was definitely eyeing The Ritual Box (which I think is unfortunately sold out now)! I love the idea of having those products all in one place. The Forest Bath also sounds wonderful and relaxing!

Hi Alison!

So first off, I would love to try Blues Away and Moon herbal remedies. (I’m emotional!) haha. As for my self care routine.. I do it every Sunday night to kind of regroup and allow myself to get ready for the week ahead mentally. I run a steamy hot bath with epsom salt, grab a few candles, put a face mask on, and turn on Norah Jones. I keep my phone in another room and sometimes I even grab a book. I just want to be present in the moment. I quietly talk to myself and set goals I wanna accomplish during the week. It gives me time to just sit with myself and my thoughts.

Also – followed all of the listed above on IG!

My favorite self care ritual is to get a nice facial. ? I’m an esthetician, and I am usually the one giving the facials, so it’s incredibly relaxing to have one of my esthie friends practice on me! ?? We usually get a diffuser going with some nice essential oils (my favorite right now is peppermint) and sprinkle the hot towels with the same oil. My skin is always so happy after a facial, and it’s pure relaxation! ❤️

I would love to try R&C’s Douglas Fir Chai (chai tea is my go-to holiday drink) and her tinted lip balm (I don’t like lipstick very much because it dries my lips out too much). ❤️❤️

Love you ladies!!! Your blogs are two of my absolute favorites on IG! ?

My favorite end of the day ritual would deffinately be my lavender bath with epsom salts. It is the perfect way to de-stress and soak up some magnesium so that I can transition into a restful sleep!

I love the looks of the Cocao Dust with the 9 mushrooms and adaptogens, I think that mushrooms and chocolate blend wonderfully together. I am also curious about the taste of douglas fir with chai spices, I thinik they would go well together!

My favorite self care ritual is to do something creative. When I’m feeling down or need some time just for myself, I like to paint (something I’m quite passionate about, but don’t always have the time to do), and it’s kind of like my form of meditation. A reset for my mind. A good soak in the tub doesn’t hurt either! From Roots and Crowns I’d love to try the Moon tincture and the Beloved fragrance.

Ok, I love to dry brush in the pm and then massage sesame oil into my skin. I then do some nighttime yoga to get my body to just REST. After, I will write in my journal about what I loved about the day and also what I wished I had done differently (LISTS have helped because thats just how my mind works). Before going to bed I will spray some lavender mist on my pillow and slowly fall asleep. I LOVE IT.
I really want to try Roots and Crowns Douglas Fir Chai (because hello, its chai and herbal…such a rarity!!) as well as the MOON herbal remedy (natural pain relief from period cramps would be amazing). Thanks for having this giveaway! I am so excited for the results 🙂

Mia December 6, 2017 - 6:33 pm

THIS isn’t is such an amazing offering! And I love all the tips you’ve shared in this post. Winter is such a difficult time for me but I’m slowly starting to cultivate things that help. The biggest self care practice recently though, especially with the holidays and family around, is realizing that if I’m feeling anxious or overwhelmed it’s better to just take a step back and get out of the situation for a bit to do something that fills me up – maybe a walk, a yoga class, some time at a coffee shop, anything. It’s been a challenge to realize that I don’t have to completely compromise what I want and need to do to feel my best because of who’s around or what they may think. Sending so many hugs! And definitely wishing for some of the autumn lip color and ritual oil from the amazing roots and crowns this holiday season.

My favorite self care action is a shower and bed rest in tandem. There is something beyond therapeutic about washing off the day and stress, while putting to bed any worries or concerns. Whether it’s a short nap or a full nights sleep, you always feel better.

It’s super important for me to be actively aware of my mental health, especially during these cold and dark winter months. That’s why my favorite self-care ritual is something I practice everyday. In the mornings, I use the Guided Mediation skill on my my Amazon Echo to clear my head and set my intentions for the day. In the evenings, I try my best to be phone-free at least 30 minutes before bed and instead take the time to read while sipping on a golden moon milk to unwind.

1.) Making a cup of chai tea with local honey, turning on the bath tub with warm/hot water and dropping in one of my favorite bath bombs from Lush. I turn on whatever music I am in the mood for and right now that is Christmas tunes. I light the candles and then I soak! I sometimes add oils for moisture or epsom salt to my bath as desired.
2.) First product I’d like to try is the Detox Cleansing Remedy as I have a gene mutation that causes my body not to detox on it’s own. The second product is Beloved sensual mineral bath salts – rose & sandlewood oils because I love taking baths and relaxing.

Mmm and that fir chai recipe you posted sounds delicious! Okay, well my favorite self care routine is a bit of a cliche but I’m really into bubble baths with bath salts, occasionally a bath bomb, a bunch of candles, and some crystals. But also – saying “no” has become a favorite self care ritual for me as it’s something I didn’t feel comfortable doing for most of my life until the last year or so.

My go-to self-care ritual is alone time in my fuzzy bathrobe and wool socks spent sipping a warm beverage (herbal tea, matcha, honey and ginger infused water) in candlelight. t’s so hard to choose just two Roots & Crowns products! I’m intrigued by the “Fire Elixir” for immune-boosting warming goodness and I love the whole concept of the “You’re Ok” bundle!

As a college student with finals around the corner, I prioritize my self-care ritual in order to maintain peace and self-awareness that gets replaced with a lot of anxiety this time of year. Recently, I have found a love for yoga, meditation, and journaling. I have been writing down one affirmation in the mornings when I sit down for a cup of tea and putting lavender oil on my wrists each day. Two products that I would love to try would be the Cocoa Dust and Blues Away.

Hi Ali! Thank you for this opportunity! My fave self care ritual? Hmmmm… just so many to choose from…a crucial one is my morning cup of tea, a blend of organic chamomile and green tea with a 1/2 tsp of cordyceps and a splash of almond mylk. It helps me start my day in a calm way.

As far as Roots and Crowns (cool name), I would really like to try the Cedar and Rose perfume oil and Autumn perfectly tinted lip balm.

Xoxo?

I’d love to try the Rose Herbal Cream or the skin ease herbal Salve. I’m finding that my current scented lotions coupled with the dry winter is making my psoriasis worse 🙁 so I think something more natural is in much need!

Kelly December 6, 2017 - 7:51 pm

My favorite self care is giving myself a facial while I take a nice hot mineral salt & EO bath. I set up my tub tray with mirror and everything ahead of time then melt into the bath while I pamper my face with a gentle foam cleansing, hot steam rag, exfoliation with salt or sugar scrub, detox with clay mask, calm with fresh aloe or honey, tone and then moisturize.

There’s nothing on their website I wouldn’t try but if I could order anything I’d get the Rose Facial Oil or the Sea Buckthorn Herbal Elixir!! Both seem like products I would incorporate into my daily routine and really benefit from using. I’ve been struggling with acne and really trying to treat my skin the best I can.

My favorite self care ritual is a face mask whenever I’m stressed or my anxiety is high. Especially as an athlete, doing one the night before a competition is so relaxing. I would love to try any of the bath soaks, more specifically the You’re Ok Stress Relieving Mineral Bath Salt Soak, as well as the Spruce and Cedarwood Roll on, because being 1000 miles away from Portland is so hard. Only 6 more months till I’m back for good! Thanks so much for your amazing posts, you seriously have changed my life!

I am cold natured so my self-care rituals involve bringing warmth to my bones. This often looks like activity (biking, gardening, hiking) and warm drinks (in the summer I love putting frozen berries in my green tea) but my f a v o r i t e ritual is bath time, especially to wind down after a day of pushing my body. I love a hot bath with the works: bubbles, salts and oils, candles, bath bombs, wine, and a podcast. Engaging and relaxing all my senses. After, I moisturize and put on the coziest garments within reach. Roots & Crowns entire product list appeals to me, but I am most interested in the woodsy soak and rose herb cream.

Self Care Is:
Taking a hot bath, filled with essential oils and and fresh flower petals. In my hand is a glass of my favorite Cabernet.

The most important part of the ritual is pure, uninterrupted meditation and reflection on life goals and self improvement. ???

So, Roots & Crowns “Beloved Sensual Mineral Bath Salts: Aphrodisiac Aromatherapy w/ Rose & Sandalwood Oils” reads divinity. Secondly, it’s a tie between birthing the day with “Cedar & Rose Grounding and Elevating Aromatherapy Body Oil Perfume” or “Cocoa Dust” as a post soak elixir. 😉

I would firstly like to say how much importance self care has in one’s routine, and with this year being full of loss for me and many around me I have had to put even more energy into rejuvenation and well being than ever before. I have found that my practices for self care in turn allow me to support and care for everyone else who needs it. My daily routine involves a home practice of yoga with some match or jasmine tea followed by an aroma therapy (simple lavender oil is what I have on a college budget) meditation to rebuild and hopefully a bath if there’s time. Another alternative activity is a photo walk around the neighborhood or some figure drawing to loosen things up. I hope you all have relaxing and meaningful holidays ?❤️

I’ve been following Max for some time now, and I’m so blown away with the warmth and intentions I feel from her. Although bathing is my go-to self care ritual, I would love branching out and loving my body with oils and a sense of calm and color. I would LOVE to try the new winter lip color, and the “you’re ok” essential oil roll on.

My favorite self care ritual is mediation. I recently started meditating ( using the 1 giant mind 12 step course) it’s awesome. I meditate in the morning before work and it’s so amazing how light, relaxed and even tempered I am after 15 minutes of meditating! I would love to try the roots and crown moon herbal remedy drops and the forest bath soak!

This giveaway is incredible and all of these comments are giving me so much self care inspiration!
My favorite self care routine has always been taking a long, warm bath with candles and music. Lately I’ve also been trying out different forms of meditation. Taking a few minutes out of the day to reflect on all the good things in life has helped my stress and anxiety levels so much lately – especially with a lot of the chaos this time of year brings.
The two items from roots & crown that I’ve been drying to try and the stress relieving bath soak and the rose face mist!
Thank you both for putting together this giveaway and being a constant source of inspiration! ✨

The photographs in this blog post are so dreamy!?? After looking through Roots & Crowns web site I decided I am going to try the “Herbal Tattoo Balm for Healing Tattoos & Pretty Much Anything Else” I love having a go-to product with multiple uses, and my hands are a nightmare in the winter. I struggle with dry and cracked hands once the cold weather comes and I think this balm would be a miracle worker for me! I also am going to try the “Sea Buckthorn All-In One Herbal Face Cleanser, Toner, Moisturizer”.. again I love the idea of one product with the benefits of many. I also suffer with dry skin on my face in the winter (pretty my my whole body??‍♀️) and have tried a plethora of different products with little to no luck.. (I did purchase the Avene product you recommended on your PD blog post and am anxious to get it & see results!!) My self care ritual consists of drinking herbal tea, doing a face mask and painting my nails, soaking in the tub & taking the time to meditate on all of the good in my life.? Thanks Alison!?

I love to have a quiet coffee in the morning or a tea in the evening and either plan my day or mentally reflect on my day (respectively). I’m also a huge fan of a simple yet indulgent bath. Things like oils, bath salts and candles can really elevate the experience for me and make a ‘mundane task’ a lot more special.

I’ve been dying to try A LOT of the Roots and Crowns inventory. The forest smudge wands, the forest bath salts, protector oil, the Douglas for chai, the magic cocoa dust. All of it.

If I had to choose two, I’d have to saw the You’re OK Stress-Relieving Mineral Soak, and also Breathe Chest Rub. But seriously every product on Roots & Crowns gets my attention! My favorite self Care ritual would have to be turning on very soothing music, lighting a candle with calming aromas, filling a bath with warm water and soaking in calming bath salts that ease the soul. Not to mention having a cup of tea that is calming as well. After this lovely bath I’d get into soft pajamas and probably curl up with my cat or make some art.

My favorite self care ritual is actually baking.

It’s my creative playhouse. I enjoy pushing the health points up by sneaking in super foods and healthy flour like quinoa and teff. When I bake for me, i get lost in the flow and feel grounded. When community gathers and enjoy ny treats, that’s a bonus.
Also, hiking in the mountains heals me.

I love elaborate self care rituals but for me the magic is in what I do every day. Right now this means pausing before I lie down in bed to massage calendula salve into my feet and calendula oil down the length of my legs. I began this practice several years ago. Back then my legs buzzed from peripheral neuropathy and somehow the oils dampened these sensations. This is part if the magic in herbal medicine. Sometimes they heal us in ways we can’t explain. All these years later the buzzing is generally gone and this practice has taken on new meaning. It is a time for me to connect with my body–to drop in and inhabit myself–in ways I had all but forgotten. Thank you for offering this prompt. Before writing this passage I kind of wrote off this practice with the attitude ‘it isn’t that much’ and now I see it for what it is — my daily devotion to stay connected to my legs and feet–and the ground beneath me whether I can physically feel it or not. Magic! If I could try any of Roots & Crowns products I would indulge my legs and feet by substituting her T.S. Scar Healing Salve and Rose Face Serum for my handmade oils and salves. I wasn’t quite sure if you are asking which products in the reward package I most want to try — in that case it is the Doug Fir Chai & Cocoa Dust <3

Then my husband takes the kids for a bit while I read a loving, inspirational passage out of one of my million books, write a few things I am grateful for while burning some Palo santo and sipping my elixir.

Getting out of the city (Brooklyn) and going for some type of walk or hike.

I have been a huge fan of all Roots & Crowns witchy goodness since my first visit to Maria’s shop Seagrape Soap, another one of Portland’s lovely small businesses where I purchased a few different Roots & Crowns bitters. As a Seattleite I come down to visit Portland as often as possible and I had the great pleasure of Max in person at a flea market where I continued exploring some other products, not once being disappointed by a Roots & Crowns purchase!
One of my go to self care rituals for when I’m feeling down begins by blasting my feel good playlist while brewing myself a cup of tea, gathering a small snack and drawing a bath with essential oils & epsom salt. I often listen to Joe Hisaishi while working on some sort of puzzle or reading and enjoying my snacks.

My fav self care ritual is the act of simply going to the grocery store. Not purchasing takeout or fast foods- took me quite a while in life to realize that shopping for Whole Foods and cooking my meals was the best way to feel good, look good and love myself.
Baths and tea and quiet time help too.

Max’s beautiful shop: Im dying to try the Forest bath and beloved oil (as well as the cedar oil). And the new winter lip balm looks right up my alley.
Thank you!

After reading this post I’m thinking I definitely need to re-evaluate my self-care routine. My go-to is to take a 30 minute nap but after looking at those products I’m definitely going to add some splurge items. I would love to try the face cleanser, toner, and moisturizer by Sea Buckhorn! It sounds fantastic!

My favorite self care ritual is taking five minutes to listen to a guided meditation. I use the insight timer app, which has a great variety of meditations. Taking a moment to clear my mind and breathe does so much good for my body and soul. Self compassion allows me to spread compassion to others. I love Roots and Crowns, and would love to try the Cocoa Powder (yay adaptogens) and the “Rest Well” Sleep-time Remedy.

Favorite self-care is sitting in a tidy, sacred space— quietly, restfully alone, bath or not, to allow for the ability to fall into myself after mothering 5 babies 24/7– 9 days a week (no that isn’t a typo).

As a virgo I love being in nature & forrest bathing, The Forest Bath: Rich Mineral Therapeutic Woodsy Bath Soak sounds super appealing to me. I can just imagine myself sitting in the middle of the forest floor or high in a tree with this gorgeous concoction.

Up next, the Sea Buckthorn herbal face all-in-one cleanser-toner-moisturizer sounds right up my alley because I’m #mommin247 I love fresh feeling skin.

And a 3rd product for fun that I know would be fabulous is the mushroom cacao — such a creative way to add a little spunk to my cup in the morning since I’m not a coffee drinker (drains my adrenals).

Elderberry syrup (to mix with seltzer for an after work healing “cocktail” and doug fir chai for morning grounding! One of my fav self care rituals is to wake up a bit early, light a candle, make something warm to drink,and go over the day before the mayhem begins!

Hi Alison!
One of my favorite self-love rituals is going for a long walk out in nature! I recently moved to Seattle, and it is fun to explore new parts of the city while moving my body and getting fresh air. Sometimes I’ll walk for 2+ hours.
I am interested in trying the cocoa dust (I’m a chocolate fiend hehe) and the floral bath kit.
Love & Peace!

I would loooove to try the breath balm and the tattoo balm. This time of year my sinuses are perpetually congested and I would do anything for some relief.

My favorite self-care ritual is definitely having a bath. I switch off all electric lights in the room and get maybe way too much candles around me. No music, just pure silence and warm, warm water. There’s no such a thing like this. Also, after that I’m not able to talk with anyone for something like 30 minutes. Another self-care ritual I love (that I have way much often since bath is a special treat for when I REALLY need certain kind of feelings) is my morning warm lemon water. I’m not able anymore to live without it, it’s the first thing I crave in the morning before anything else. Would love to try the elemental notebook and the self care “of flowers” kit.

My self-care go-to is always water. A hot bath or shower, essential oils, salts if I have them. Candles, a book, sometimes music.
Lately, I’ve been dancing with my littles a lot for self-care. Interestingly enough, my kids seem to like the loud Tori Amos I’ve been craving. (Tempered for tiny ears, of course)
I have been following Roots & Crowns for a while now. I have plans to get the Beloved oil and the Rose Face Serum, and want to get the You’re Ok bath salts also.

my favorite weekend self care ritual is yoga flow-ing to awaken my muscles and then going to local spa and following with a few therapeutic rounds of taking a sauna and bathing to cleanse my body and mind. my favorite weekday self care ritual is taking a break to sketch (it must be something different from a project I am working on.. just to open up more creativity) with a steaming cup of tulsi tea.

Hi!
My favorite self-care ritual is every time I have my house to myself, to brew a nice tea, get a hot bath running and put on a face mask. I just enjoy these few minutes no matter how long or short I get, where I can hear the silence in my house and reflect on alone.
That is probably why I chose both the “of Flowers” Kit and the Sea Buckthorn Kits from Roots and Crowns, perfect way to pamper yourself.

Sometimes a small glass of red wine takes place of tea, depends on what kind of day I’ve had. After a 40 minute soak, I make sure to drink 40 oz of water and I also like to have a good stretch session before crawling into bed.

My self-care ritual comes with a story; I had a stroke 5 years ago and also had a baby at the same time-whoa! It was crazy times. I’ve heard people talk about about stroke recovery and getting back to normal but not much talking is happening about what “normal” is and there’s that scary little fact that you can never get back to anything normal after a stroke. You have brain damage, your brain is different, you are different. Whatever normal is is now completely different and completely unknown. It took me a few years of dark times to come to this realization and then a couple more to start discivering my new brain and self. I was looking for that thing that makes time stop. That activity that puts you fully in the moment, and brings out all your emotions and makes you feel present. After trying things out, classes and such, much like a kid does, I found it! Trail running!! My self-care ritual is a 3K trail run as many times a week as I can fit in. This not only helps me with self discovery but also helps me regulate my emotions so I can be a better mom which is absolutely my most important value. Which brings me to my two favourite Roots & Crowns products; the “moon” herbal remedy and the “rest well” sleepy-time remedy which both help with things I need to be the best mom I can be!!
You’re an inspiration and a motivation Alison.
Thank you!

I love this Alison! Self care is so important yet so under valued. I start every morning with dry brushing and an Ayurvedic self massage with sesame oil, I light a candle and put on a guided meditation in order to open space for all that the day will bring in. Usually followed by 15 minutes of yoga and a mushroom elixir. Elixir drinks have taken the place of my morning smoothies during the winter so I’d love to try the Cocoa Dust, and the face/beard mist for my bf? which I would consider self care because I get to be close to that fresh face!

I love what Max said about animal hibernation. I definitely feel like that when it starts to get cold out, and a little guilty for not always wanting to play outside. But it’s a good reminder to allow your self it’s okay to slow down in winter like the animals we are.
Baths are my safe place. I started taking baths in winter because I was just so cold! But it’s become a meditative space where I can let go of my day. I sleep so much better if I’ve taken a bath right before bed. I’m definitely going to try that bath soak recipe!

I’ve been following Roots and Crowns since I got Instagram this summer. Love love her page! And when I first saw her posting, I started following Wu Haus and loving it as well!
The product I saw Roots and Crowns post about a few months ago that I’m really interested in is the Cocoa Dust! Chocolate is magic.
I would also LOVE to get my hands on a Pacific Coast Smudge stick if they are ever back in stock! (I keep checking back) So beautiful. You can tell the love a respect that goes into making them.

I love nothing more than a hot shower at night or a nap when I am tired and cold but sometimes I will make my self some miso soup and rice and it’s so comforting. 🙂 it’s the small things! Hehe as for My two favorite items would be the Cocoa Dust and Osha Herbal Anti-biotic Syrup or wellness tonic. My husband has been on and off sick for a while year with cold/flue that develops into a chest infection. (He suffers from post nasal drip) it causes him to get stressed, exhausted and depressed because he can’t work out and it’s the one thing that helps him tolerate his annoying job. I think those two would specially help him fight this thing that plagued him.

I’d love to try the Rose Face Serum and the Forest Bath: Mineral Rich Therapeutic Woodsy Bath Soak. One of my self care things is to play calming music and read a book. Just time for myself to chill and not do anything else. I turn my phone notifications off and just unplug for a while.

For me, self care is about healing, however small that exhaustion or wound may be. If we don’t practice our rituals regularly enough, those exhaustions start to build on top of us and weigh us down. As someone who grew up on the coast I firmly believe in the words of Karen Blixen, “The cure for anything is salt water – tears, sweat or the sea.” It took me years to find my salt water replacement after moving away from the sea, but I now practice my self care ritual at the sauna. Every other week or so, on a Tuesday, I set two hours aside just for me to sweat it out in the sauna. Although I typically go alone and meditate, I feel as strong female bonding, as women from a wide range of ages and backgrounds share the cedar room together for a common and ancient ritual.

I have also been wanting to try Max’s Douglas Fir Chai and Cedar Room Spray (and the new Winter Tint lip balm!) I’ve been trying to incorporate as much forest into my daily life as possible the last few months.

Thanks for sharing these amazing artists with us, all of which I also gave a follow via Instagram.

Cheers!

everything Roots & Crowns looks dreamy! if i had to pick 2, i would choose the doug fir chai because i LOVE chai and the be loved oils so i can give myself and my husband more love. i am currently working on making more time for myself and my self-care ritual. i have a difficult time balancing me and my work, even though i know i should come first. when i make the time, a good at home yoga session with chai, and get lost in the music. then i take a steamy shower and lather myself with my favorite Osmia Lavender mousse. thank you WUHAUS!

Two Roots and Crowns products I would love to try and haven’t are, the rose face cream- my face is so extra dry in the pcnw winter, and the cocoa dust- I’ve been taking adaptogens at home for a while, but I would love to try Max’s ready to enjoy mix!

Let’s see… where to even begin with self care regime. Self care is a mix of physical and spiritual for me. And often envolves doing something I would rather not do- like taking that extra money and paying an old debt off, but I’ve come to learn that that is self care. I’m blessed to have a mentor and a also to be a mentor to someone else and the work I do, making inventory of my life, coming to see my part in all my interactions- being put back into right size, and doing that same work for someone else’s growth, that is self care and I do that weekly. Growing up, taking care of my autoimmune disease, psoriasis felt like such a burden, and in my adult hood I’ve tried to make it feel like special time, when I cook healthy meals that heal me inside out and then later at night when I get to spend time with myself putting on creams, ointments, lotions whatever it may be, is an act of self care. After all that, waking up early on a day off, making coffee and sitting in my dark room with nothing but candles, writing in my journal, feels like the most luxurious thing I could do… and that might be my favorite. But I don’t think I could enjoy it, without doing the work of everything above!

Hi Everyone! I had heard of roots and crowns before as I’m from Oregon and am Familiar with a lot of the amazing local artists and makers in Portland in particular. I’d love to try to “protect” roll on oil and the breathe chest rub. This time of year I feel like I am surrounded by sickness and keep almost getting something but has luckily kicked it so far 🙂 they seem like amazing products to keep on hand when not so lucky and you catch something. My favorite self care routine is a very hot bath with lavender oil and at least a cup of Epsom salts (so relaxing and I need the extra magnesium), and I light a few candles and just close my eyes and breathe. It is an amazing way to end the day. I am so grateful for my bath tub!

My favorite self care ritual is to leave my phone at home and take a book to the park with a thermos of tea. Despite living in such a fast-paced city (NYC), I find that taking an hour to unplug in the outdoors lets me decompress and have time to have my mind thoughtfully wander. When it comes to Roots & Crowns’ products, I would love to try the Spruce & Cedarwood spray to bring some of the outdoors into my apartment as well as the Rose Face Serum to take care of my skin this winter.

As a first time Momma to a wild child I found myself putting self care on the back burner for the first year of her life. I was left completely depleted and realized that as a Mom we sometimes have to put ourselves first. We have to replenish our souls and take care ourselves in order to take care of our little ones. Although I don’t get a ton of time to do all of the self care rituals that I would like to, even just a simple hot bath (by myself) does wonders for me. Also being completely ok and not feeling guilty about saying “yes” to lunch with a friend or an aerial yoga class even if it means leaving my daughter with her Grandma for an hour. If I can’t go get a massage then I massage myself with coconut oil and put something comfy on after and just relax.
After looking at roots and crowns website I honestly want to try every single product minus the beard oil? My top two faves to try would have to be the You’re Ok Stress-Relieving Mineral Bath Salt Soak and the “Be-Loved” Aphrodisiac Organic Remedy

My favorite things for self care is to take a hot shower, put some soothing oils in the diffuser, make me a hot tea or latte and curl up with a book, some soft music and when I get done reading just pray and meditate. I love to do all that by the fire in the winter and in the warmer months I love to hang outside in the hammock. I love the outdoors and I’m always craving the connection with nature.
Would love to try the cocoa dust for lattes and the rose face serum because I’m always looking for great things to put on my face. All her products sound lovely.

Nothing makes you feel better then a warm snuggle puppy! I would love to try the breathe chest rub because I’m currently fighting off a cold and feeling pretty congested.

I would love to try You’re okay Mineral Soak Bath and Cocoa Dust 🙂 I’m finally done with my finals and nothing sounds better than a hot bath to promote my well being. Also, I’m a Nutrition student and have heard all about adaptogens but have never given them a try—the cocoa dust only heightens my curiousity. My wellness routine is pretty simple, I put a few drops of lavender essential oil in a spray bottle diluted with water. I mist it on my body before I leave the house and mist it on my pillow before I go to bed. Another wellness routine I practice is just being mindful and staying present — living without judgment.

Morning Ritual: I consume a full glass of water with ACV and then a cup of tea before anything else happens! Then I spend time getting inspired and setting intentions. I use a few books and a journal for this practice. Keeping this a regular practice has been so important- especially since I started graduate school.

When I need a little more: I take a bath, attend a restorative yoga class, or go for a long hike. I leave the cell phone far away.

I would love to try Roots and Crowns Ritual Box and the Self Care “of Forest” Kit. I could probably use all of the You’re Ok Bundle right now as I go through finals.

Self care is something I’ve been known to overlook because life gets busy for us all! It definitely needs to be a priority. Clearing my mind with meditation and then reflecting on life with journaling has been my main way. I had bought a few products that I absolutely love, the you’re ok roll on stress relief has been so helpful and I had gotten the tattoo balm and foredt clearing room spray. All of the products are so well made and I love supporting small businesses. I would like to try the cocoa dust and the you’re ok bath soak (which I bet is so relaxing, going off of my experience with the roll on!) Cheers!

For me, self care is health care! My self care routine changes every season. Right now, I love to get up early and do a candle lit yoga session while it’s still dark outside. Followed by a morning walk to get a fresh nose. When I get back home, I take a steaming hot shower with some eucalyptus oil after first dry brushing myself. I put on a comfy sweater, some tights and make myself a big bowl of oats with all kinds of goodies and a matcha latte. I just read the newspapers (with my cat on my lap) and catch on on some blog posts. I believe the Roots & Crowns Forest Bath & Roots & Crowns Cocoa Dust would be a perfect addition to my winter routine.

Packed schedules and an endless to-do list sometimes leaves us exhausted at the end of the day. The times when self-care is most important for me is when it is the last thing I feel like doing. It is then that I know it is something essential to stay grounded. I love filling up a hot bath and adding relaxing essential oils like Roman chamomile and lavender. I try to remove all electronics and just enjoy my breathing and the moment. I would love to try the Rose Face Serum + Smooch Lip Balm to help me feel and look my best in the cold months before my wedding! In addition, the mineral soaks would be an amazing experience for my self-care baths!

My favorite self-care ritual is keeping my body in motion – whether it’s yoga, dancing, or just taking a walk. I’m not always excited to do it but it’s the one thing that leaves me feeling the best if I’m consistent with it . The products I would look most to try are the chest rub and the bath salts.

Love this!! The photos are divine! My self care ritual is getting my nails done once a month. No matter what I’m up to or where I am, I will always splurge and go get my nails done in one of 3 colors after an especially tough work week. I love the tinted lip balms and need them all, especially with the surprise snowy weather we had in DC this week! I also love the You’re Okay bundle because what’s better than a little lavender?

Obsessed with all of this. The rose herbal face cream & forest bath salt sound RIGHT up my alley, but every Roots & Crowns product sounds luxurious. Even though my morning routine of yoga, meditation, tea, & reading is a perfect, grounding way to start my day, I think my favorite self-care ritual is bath time, because each bath can be so different, depending on what I need. I can gather all my plants & crystals to surround the tub with, I can add citrus or flower petals to the water, I can add salts or a bath bomb, or I can just light a candle & get a good book. The restorative nature of immersing the body in water never feels like wasted time, & the fact that each bath can be so different & yield such different forms of relaxation is rewarding to me.

I just met Max at the Portland Bazzar, and she seems as beautiful as the products she makes. Go her!
My ritual usually includes a long bath and making a comforting meal for myself– yes, I have enjoyed pasta whilst in the bath.
I bought a roll on fragrance at the bazzar but was so tempted to buy the bitters/tinctures she offers for fun winter cocktails. Plus, I saw a bunch of people buy the rose face serum. BUT unfortunately, I have been dealing with some serious winter eczema and since baths are my go-to relaxation method, the salts she makes would be amazing for me. And any other product that would help with this terrible winter itch! All of these vendors look amazing.

My favorite way to unwind and relax is to hike, or take in the nature that surrounds me. This followed by relaxing at home by the warm fire and enjoy some yoga and stretching. If I had to pick only two products from Roots&Crown that I feel would definitely enhance my relaxing rituals and happy states of mind they would have to be the Sea Buckthorn Face Serum an exfoliant, cleanser and moisturizer, which would help replenish. the skin especially during the dry winter months. Also contains Carrot Seed, which is a natural spf! The other product I would absolutely love to try would be the ‘Cocoa Dust’ with bio-available medicinal mushrooms full of antioxidants,and adaptogens and other beneficial herbs that ease muscle tension and Gingko which provide clarity and focus to the mind. I would like to add the cocoa dust to a bit of coconut milk and or make a baked good and sit by the fire with the ones I love most.

I love to do a self care ritual on Sunday nights to relax and prepare myself for the week ahead. This usually consists of showering in the evening, applying rosehip oil to my face and neck, and running some jojba oil through the ends of my hair. I love doing natural facemasks and a nose strip as well. While I’m waiting for the facemask to dry I will usually turn on my diffuser, put a couple of drops of lavender essential oil in and make a cup of tea and snuggle with my kitty. I love sitting in the space I’ve created for myself with some twinkle lights and looking at all the plants in my home and just taking some deep breaths and giving thanks to a few things in my life. It is so important to take time for yourself, even an hour out of the week so you can feel rejuvenated and recharged. If I could purchase all of the products on Roots & Crowns I would, they are all so amazing! I would love to try the Rose Face Serum and Cedarwood and Spruce Roll On Oil!

My favorite self care ritual is waking up in the morning before everyone else with no external alarm clock, I rely completely on my internal clock. I keep my phone off. I heat up 8 oz of water, pour in a mug and add one drop of lemon essential oil to hydrate my body. While the water cools, I do 10 minutes of guided mediation. After I meditate, I drink my warm lemon water and do my daily gratitude practice. I write 3 people I am grateful for, 3 things I love about my body, 3 things I love about what I do for a living, and 3 things I love about where I live. When that is finished, I will do a workout based on how my body feels-sometimes its intense cardio other times its yoga, but its about listening to my body.

The two products I want to try most are: The Rose Face Serum and the In Joy- Pure Albizia

My favorite self care ritual currently during these cold days is soaking my feet in Rosemary and Mint Epsom Salts + Magnesium Flakes + occasionally Oregano Oil and ACV to help with athletes foot. All while listening to some mellow Portuguese and banjo by “Rubel” while I write in my journal. 🙂
I’d be thrilled to try the Sea Buckthorn Herbal face cleanser, toner and moisturizer to help my immune system and dry face on these crisp days. Also, the Moon herbal remedy. I love the combination of nettles, burdock, red raspberry leaf, ladys mantle, ginger and motherwort.

Rituals… when I first began following your blog, and seeing your pictures of your baths , I was only beginning a journey of self love and care . One that I had only begun st the age on 25 . I am big into athleticism, and as a yoga teacher I spend a lot of time teaching class,taking class, and always active and on my feet. So my favorite ritual is to be coming home, put the tea kettle on, start the bath to which I add salt baths, esssential oils like lime , eucalyptus bath oil, and you inspired me to put rose petals. The bath runs , the hot water is ready and I make myself a chai tea with a little coconut butter and almond milk . I slip in the bath , with my tea there to sip and the petals floating around me and I close my eyes , so I can listen to a classical music playlist .

Having taken a look at the products , the two I would lost like to try are beloved sensual ritual bath salt and the sea buckthorn all in one face cleanser , moisturizer, toner .

This looks so lovely! I’m a first-year college student, so getting self-care into the hectic schedule of dorm life is really important to me! One of my favorite things to do when I’m feeling stressed or overwhelmed with work is to make myself a thermos full of herbal tea, put on my coat, and take a long walk to think and sip my tea. It clears my head and seems to put everything in perspective. After moving from a warm city to the cold northeast, I am on the lookout for an effective moisturizer and Roots and Crown’s Rose Herbal Cream looks like a dream. My second pick would have to be the Herbal Allergy Tea Blend. As an seasonal allergy sufferer and lover of herbal tea (see above), it looks right up my alley.
