An Evening Empowering Self-Love Rituals | Found Natural Goods
A week prior to the day coined around celebrating Love — Valentine’s Day — we want to empower our Found People to remember first-and-foremost that Self-Love is Queen.
That said, we’re staying open late Friday, February 8th from 5 pm - 8 pm to offer all our sustainable goods into your world with a small addition of counsel depending on what you’re in need of. Rest? Ritual? Some fun? Maybe just the reminder that Valentine’s Day can be about something larger than the pressures around the holiday. Make it about YOU.
Gift yourself a something that you just love. That makes you know how beautiful you are inside and out with each mist. That reminds you how important and loved you are with each application. How sexy you can be in a silky or velvety something. How balanced you can be mentally after a hot bath soak. Or how cherished you are with a ring on whatever finger you wish, all gifted to yourself.
Once you take care of yourself first, it’s much easier to see how you can be there for another love in your life. XO
