As a huge advocate for personal development, I was thrilled when the self-care subscription box from Loti Wellness arrived on my doorstep.
For me, beauty is in the details and what first caught my attention was the thoughtful packaging and design. “Be Kind, Be Bold, Be Glad. Live Loti.” Such simple yet powerful advice! And the handwritten note inside was such a lovely personal touch (thanks Kitty!)
Even more interesting is the brand’s backstory and inspiration behind their name. Loti Wellness was founded by an occupational therapist and psychotherapist who specializes in cognitive behavioral therapy and positive psychology. All the products in this box are expert-approved and carefully curated to provide total mind/body wellness.
When many people hear the term “self-care” they associate it with luxury and indulgence, but Loti Wellness takes a more disciplined approach to self-care. Like myself, they believe that self-care is a crucial component of improving and maintaining your mental health and well-being. They offer research-inspired therapeutic activities and practical strategies to work through life’s challenges, reduce anxiety and develop positive habits.
The name “Loti” was inspired by the lotus flower. Unlike other flowers, a lotus blooms from the mud – a symbol for overcoming adversity and unleashing your potential. As a writer, I can’t help but love a good metaphor. Bonus points for creativity!
Upon opening the box, I was excited to see such a wide range of goodies (please note all pricing is in Canadian dollars) :
WAY OF WILL Natural Deodorant Spray 130 mL
Calling all essential oil lovers! This all-natural deodorant spray contains bergamot and elemi, two of my favorite scents. Both are refreshing and rejuvenating, and even on my hardest workouts, this spray got the job done. I tested it before and after my morning runs and soccer sessions.
WAY OF WILL Jumbo Lip Balm (Lemon + Jojoba) 14.15 g
I’m always looking for a good lip balm to throw in my bag, and this one looks and tastes amazing. With apricot kernel oil, jojoba oil, and shea butter ingredients, it is naturally moisturizing and leaves my lips feeling incredibly soft and smooth. As an added bonus, it’s infused with vitamin E, antioxidants, and lemon essential oil, so needless to say, this lip balm packs a powerful punch.
ANTO YUKON Cypress Hills Soap 4 oz.
Filled with all natural ingredients, this handmade cypress and citrus soap is from the Yukon Territory, with original artwork of Canada’s Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park (artist: Meghan Hildebrand). The combination of cypress, grapefruit, and lime creates a uniquely beautiful scent!
SOAPTOPIA Sisal Soap Sack
I’ve never seen one of these before! This biodegradable soap sack has really come in handy. Believe it or not, this natural sisal fiber material helps your soap last longer. It’s also a great exfoliant. I definitely noticed a difference after using it for a few days.
XPAND No-Tie Lacing System
As a runner, I was pumped to test these out and they are definitely a time saver. Made with zero-memory elastic rubber, Xpand Laces will fit comfortably in any shoe. One size fits all shoes – for adults and kids.
PEAK Water Bottle Ice Tray
First thought when I saw this product: the person who invented it is a genius. Made from silicone and steel, these trays are designed to fit in all water bottles. It’s one of those products you don’t even know you need until you see it. Everyone has experienced the struggle of trying to smash a square ice cube in a round water bottle. Thank you Loti Wellness, this has definitely made my life easier. Bonus: it’s also dishwasher safe and BPA free.
LOTI ACTIVITY: Self-Care Recharge Workbook
Saved the best for last. Love journals and workbooks! Regardless of where you are in your self-care journey, it’s important to check in with yourself on a regular basis. This self-care recharge workbook is designed to help you stay on track with your goals and supports your development in all areas: emotional, psychological, physical, social, spiritual and professional.
THANK YOU LOTI WELLNESS! These products are incredible. Can’t wait to share them with my friends and followers!
