When it comes to beauty, I am probably the antithesis of the traditional yogini. I like make-up and curling irons and luxurious body oils (although I suppose that could be a form of ayurveda) but what I mean to say is that’s what I like. I think it’s fun to experiment with lash extensions (although I won’t say the same for hair extensions - had them for my wedding, woof they’re so hard to maintain). But make up or not, I feel my absolute best when I’m stress-free and at-ease.
These last few months I’ve been working really hard on maintaining a balance in my work and personal life, trying to keep my stress in check, and doing the little things to ensure I’m taking care of myself- getting enough sleep, drinking enough water, and de-stressing when needed. It has been such a process, but I’ve learned so much about myself along the way.
In this beauty essentials giveaway, I wanted to highlight products that I feel embody this idea of taking care of oneself as a part of the beauty regimen.
1. My Earth Kiss, Detox mask, $2.99 - This cooling detox mask is a favorite of mine for cozy Sunday mornings before a long bath.
2. Osmia Organics, Natural perfume sampler, $44 - These five earthy scents are perfect for fall. There's cedar smoke, bria, teal, ossod and juniper fire - all woodsy scents that remind me of a crisp fall day.
3. Vital Proteins, Beef liver pills, $36 - These beef liver pills are an excellent source of Vitamin A, a great way to balance hormones and maintain energy levels.
4. Chopra Center, Soothing tea, $14 - This soothing blend of chamomile, spearmint and fennel make up the perfect cup of tea at the end of a long day. The organic herbal blend is refreshing, hydrating and great for digestion.
This giveaway is open to those in the US (for products 2, 3, and 4). People in the UK can enter to win one of the detox masks.
How to enter
Let’s talk about how you best take care of yourself. What do you do for self-care on a regular basis?

Tell us in the comments below and then click in the rafflecopter widget to let us know. Two winners (one in the US and one in the UK) will be picked on the 30th).
