As we wrap up 2021, let’s take a minute for some self-reflection and self-care.
Self-care is so important, especially during times of stress and change and busy schedules.
Around this time of year, we become easily overwhelmed and very underserved that we often forget to check in on those around us, including ourselves.
That is why, at the Ubuntu Community Collective, we have intentionally prepared this giveaway for two lucky winners. This giveaway is more than getting caught up in consumerism, it’s about extending gratitude to one another and most importantly to self. It’s important to pour back into self and what better way to start than with the new year.
As we gathered together as a collective, we carefully and consciously hand-picked and packed sensual self-care items that we could see ourselves, and many others who look like us, benefit from all of the amazing items. Self-care is not linear and can look very different for everyone, but with all the goodness that this package offers- it really is perfect for anyone.
The New Year Self-Care Package includes:
1/2 kg epsom salt in a hand-sewn African fabric bag
epsom salt is magnesium sulphate that dissolves in water and absorbs into your skin. Magnesium and sulphate ions help to soothe tired muscles, relieve aches and pains, and reduce swelling. These minerals are believed to draw out toxins from the body and restore balance. Add 2 cups to your warm bath for best results.
Pumice stone from the volcanic areas of the East African Rift in southern Tanzania.
a bar of dark chocolate
2 Beeswax candles (tealights)
100g of red rose petals in a pouch
gelatinized (pre-cooked) maca root powder.
Reishi mushroom powder
Ubuntu's handcrafted Rich Kawfi:
250g of raw unscented shea butter from Mama's Life Products
Ubuntu's handcrafted Immune Boost ACV tincture
Ubuntu's handcrafted Gardener's Hand Salve

WHAT ARE ADAPTOGENS?
Adaptogens are herbs that may help your body to adapt to stress. They help you to cope with a range of stressors on your body and they may help you to recover from the adverse effects of stress by helping your body to regulate your nervous system.
What’s a sensual self-care day without the beautiful scents of essential oils to accompany you. That’s why we made sure the kit includes:
a very fragrant and sensual flower that opens the sacral and heart chakras.
Tip: Combining a few drops of essential oils to your favourite body butter can change it
from a simple body butter, to a healing body butter.
However you choose to hold space this holiday season, start the new year with clear, stress free intentions - this New Year Self-Care Package has everything you need and much more.
