Christmas Self-Care Box: Assorted Gifts from Monastery Creations

Product Overview

About the Box

This uniquely packaged Christmas box contains a variety of amazing all-natural products that have been hand crafted by the Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration:

  • Short pillar candle (frosted spruce, 13 oz.): Hand poured and blessed with holy water. No carcinogens are produced when burning. Biodegradable and water soluble.

  • Lip balm (flavor-free): Made from all-natural ingredients.

  • Premium all-natural handmade soap (peppermint patty, 5 oz.): Contains a few drops of holy water and a prayer for those who will use the soap. Carefully blended, cut, and placed in a cloth bag.

  • Sugar scrub (citrus mint, 4 oz.): This scrub will turn your daily shower into a heavenly and luxurious experience.

  • All-natural handcrafted lotion (vanilla, 6 oz.): Indulge yourself with our luxurious lotions that are made from food-grade ingredients. You can confidently use them on your face, your feet, and everywhere in between.

A lovely photo of their monastery graces the inside of the box, reminding you that you are being held in prayer. In the chronicles of the Sisters' early history, an 1882 entry reads, “The Sisters made their own candles and soap.” Many years ago the sisters made soap because they needed it. In recent years the sisters have re-discovered the value and joy of hand-made fragrance soap, using modern techniques but with the same careful attention to detail that they use in all their hand-made items of pottery, weaving, and sewing that they have crafted for years. Work and prayer go hand in hand in their daily life.

    I bought several of these boxes for Christmas gifts. Everyone loved them! They smell amazing and it is so special that the sisters use Holy water and pray for the recipients.

    I gave this as a gift and the person who received it sends me pictures of how beautiful the candle is. She hasn’t tried the rest of the items but picture after picture of such a beautifully made candle and it burns so well.
