Self-Care Box: Assorted Gifts from Monastery Creations

(7 reviews) Write a Review

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.

    Beautiful Box of Care!

    This self-care box from Monastery Creations is a joy to receive. I ordered my first box at the start of this COVID-19 pandemic when I first saw it offered. It was just what I needed to comfort me! I have almost used up everything from my first box and when I saw the chance to purchase it again...I went for it! It is nicely packaged for a gift to me or for someone you care about.
