Self-Care Box: Assorted Gifts from Monastery Creations

Product Overview

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

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

  • Lip balm (mixed berry): Made from all-natural ingredients.

  • Morning dew premium all-natural handmade soap (5 oz.): Clean, fresh scent of a spring morning—light and clean. 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 (lavender, 4 oz.): This scrub will turn your daily shower into a heavenly and luxurious experience.

  • All-natural handcrafted lotion (unscented, 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.

    Good scents

    Had this mailed to my sister as a gift. Wish they could have included who it was from. Even just a post it note would have been better than nothing.

    It was a bday gift for my sister. She absolutely loves it. She stated everything was so nice. All the scents are lovely and the lip balm is so smooth. I will probably purchase again for holidays and other birthdays. I might even treat myself! :) Thank you so much for all the work you put into producing this lovely box of goodies!

    Monastery Creations-Self-Care Box

    The person I gifted this box to absolutely loved this, but had it for 2 days and didn't know where it came from because they did not include the note I wrote in the personal message. Thankfully somebody sent me an email a couple of days later in response to my request to include a note indicating they don't include personal messages, so I was able to send her a separate email asking if she received a package and letting her know it was from me, but that's a little awkward and takes the fun out of the surprise. She didn't know if it was something she had ordered for herself and just forgot or what. I find that a little odd since the majority of people are sending these as a gift and every place else I have ordered from allows you to include a note if not a card. That's the only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5.

    This is a wonderful product that my mother in law enjoyed. She loved the prayer cards included as she lathered herself in lotion.
