What is a self care business?
A brand dedicated to promoting positive self care, self love and/or self appreciation. This may include skincare, candles, jewellery, clothing and so many more!
Why choose a small business?
By choosing to shop with a small business, you're helping support individuals instead of faceless 'big brands'. Often times, small business will be eco-conscious, have a more personal approach with customer service and genuinely appreciate questions, comments and queries.
How can I shop from those listed?
I've included a link under each title and there's a comprehensive list of all brands included at the bottom of this article.
1. SELF CARE CO.
The clue is in the name!
Founded in 2018 by Nicole and Adelaide with their two cavapoo’s Bramble and Willow.
Nicole discovered aromatherapy as a therapeutic outlet through difficult periods of anxiety and low mood in her early 20s and from that Self Care Co. was born.
Run by owner Emily, LovingClobber provides pieces dedicated to positivity and mental health awareness.
All products are embroidered and designed in Yorkshire with a zero waste approach - meaning each design is made to order.
3. Solvi Jewellery
You didn't think I'd do this list and not include my own little brand, did you??
Designed to promote self love and acceptance, each piece carries it's own symbolism - as well as donating 10% of it's profits to a UK based mental health charity.
Most designed are available in silver or gold, and our new Self Love range donates an extra 10% to charity in order to further promote self love and appreciation.
4. Natural Wellness Box
Natural Wellness Box was founded by Catherine, a Mum of two with a passion for subscription boxes and all things natural.
With an interest and passion in natural health and wellness, along with beauty, it was hard to find a subscription box that included everything to help achieve a balanced body and mind. We all love a treat too, so a box that ticked all the boxes would be amazing! Catherine now balances running Natural Wellness Box with raising her beautiful family.
5. Aura Crystals
Owned by the incredibly talented Becca, and run alongside her sister shop - AuraCosmetics - AuraCrystals supplies stones and jewellery in aid of positive living.
Becca's shop includes a huge range of crystals including pink quartz, laboradite and malachite [as well as so many others!]
Her Instagram page also regularly includes affirmations and videos of her products up close.
A little afterword...
All the shops listed on this Top 5 list have been carefully selected by myself. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend each of these businesses to anyone looking for self care gifts, for close friends/family or themselves!
