Self care has become quite the buzzword this year, and for good reason, it’s so so important for our health and overall well being. One thing that’s always stayed with me, and I don’t remember where I first heard it, but you can’t serve others from an empty take. If you’re running yourself ragged working, spending time with friends and family, and keeping your house up things start to get harder and harder and it effects your overall mood and well being.

When you take the time to practice some self care you are taking the time to refuel your tank, rest, and make yourself feel good so you have the energy and good health to be able to do all of the other wonderful things that you do. There are several ways to practice self care, you can find a list of ideas with my 50 ways to practice self care post, but my favourite way to practice self care is to take a little me time and pamper myself.

I recently met Evelyne, the founder of Ellie Bianca, and loved how she’s creating high quality, all natural beauty products, all while empowering woman through sourcing Shea butter/oil from women run co-ops in Africa. Their oils and lip balms have been a great addition to my self care routine, and I’m happy to partner with them for this blog post and a giveaway.

The Citrus Verbena Body Oil does a great job of oiling up and moisturizing my dry summer skin without leaving it feeling greasy. It absorbs nicely in the skin leaving it feel soft and supple. Their moisturizing Peppermint Lip Balm has become a permanent fixture on my desk, but I’ve been most impressed with the Luxe Oil. It’s been a great addition to my usual night routine by moisturizing my face and clearing up dry spots, all while somehow drying out pimples. I don’t know how it’s done, but it’s amazing!
