Summer Self-Care Box: Assorted Gifts from the Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration

Product Overview

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

  • Short pillar candle (Magnolia, 13 oz.): Hand poured and blessed with holy water. No carcinogens are produced when burning. Biodegradable and water soluble.
  • Lip balm (coconut milk and peaches): Made from all-natural ingredients.
  • Premium all-natural handmade soap (Cucumber Melon, 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 (Lemon Chiffon, 4 oz.): This scrub will turn your daily shower into a heavenly and luxurious experience.
  • All-natural handcrafted lotion (Black Raspberry 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.

    Great Gift, Smells Great

    Posted by Mariana Verona on Dec 29th 2021

    I was looking for a gift that was thoughtful, handmade, and organic for my grandmother since she has sensitive skin. This product came in so quickly, and smells so great. I loved that the sisters make it with holy water and pray for the people that will be using their products. What a beautiful way to evangelize!

    summer self-care box

    I gave the box 5 stars but actually bought it as a gift for a friend so am anticipating her pleasure in receiving it. I tend to buy from Cedar House for gifts but have been disappointed that they never include product description and info about who and how they were created. That is what draws me to the product and I would like to be able to share that with the person I'm gifting. Would you consider enclosing such information in your products?

    Fabulous! This box was filled with wonderful, useful treats. My favorites were the candle, hand lotion and the heavenly lemon sugar scrub. The scents are delicious and the ingredients are superb. I will definitely be purchasing another one of these.
