It's June, y'all! We're almost there!!! The purpose of this month's box is to prepare our minds for vacation mode. I know it's not summer for everyone, but it helps to start thinking about what's to come in order to keep going. I have never started a classroom countdown this early, but here I am (haha). Its is totally fine to have a countdown and look forward to summer vacation. After the year we have been through AND the chaotic summer of 2020, we NEED this break. This Summer Is 'Mint' To Be box is here to help you get ready for the break and enjoy the present, guilt-free.
In the spirit of summer, what better way to get started than with cold drinks on the patio, beach or poolside?! This can cooler from Rustic Moms Boutique is great for enjoying a beverage of your choice without the cold condensation getting on your hands or clothes.
For our bath and body items, we want you to relax and get some GOOD SLEEP! To jumpstart your summer, begin with a good night’s rest using this super soft sleep mask and eucalyptus essential oil from Opal Massage Therapy. Eucalyptus oil is proven to help soothe muscle aches and relieve headaches. It is perfect to apply in the shower on your wrists, back, or temples. As an added bonus to your pampering, use the chamomile hand gloves from Avry Beauty to moisturize and nourish your hands. Mine have been so dry from using so much hand sanitizer this year and are much smoother after using the hand gloves.
You will also find peppermint tea from Tea Drops that will help contribute to a good night’s rest. I added a bit of honey and lemon to my tea and it’s delicious! Try a new recipe using the pineapple tray molds. These can be used to make adorable ice cubes, candy, jello, or even chocolate. For your mental health, I teamed up with Kat & Rachel from Holding Space For Educators. They included this adorable vinyl sticker to be completed and put in a place that you will see often. Think about what area in your life you need to hold space for, write it on the sticker, and refer back to it as needed. Lastly, I teamed up with my mom, Camille Peay to discuss the importance of rest, boundaries, and having fun over the summer, guilt-free.
