Is it just us, or has the whole world gone love-crazy? From chocolate-covered strawberries to grandiose romantic gestures, this time of year can be overwhelming (or depressing, if we’re being honest). In all of the pressure to please others, don’t forget to take a little time for yourself and bring some serious self-love to the table.
With that being said, we’ve created the ultimate “Treat Sheet” that can bring joy to any couple (or solo readers just as well).
1. Take An Essential Oil Bath
For the curious holistic, experimenting with essential oils can be an accessible way to be introduced to the benefits of aromatherapy. Finding the right blends can be tricky, but we recommend dropping a few peppermint or lavender drops into a nice, hot bath. Peppermint to rejuvenate and increase circulation and skin sensitivity. Lavender to soothe and relax.
Pro-Tip: Drop a CBD Bath Bomb pre-soak and enjoy all of the topical benefits of cannabis without the high!
2. Upgrade Your Chocolates
Who said that chocolate has to come in a heart-shaped box? Somatik’s Emerald Cup Award-Winning vegan-chocolate covered goji berries* are the perfect little chill pills to enjoy pre or post lovin’. These 2:1 CBD:THC goodies keep the vibrations high without an overwhelming psychoactive effect.

3. Get A Mani-Pedi
Never underestimate the power of a mani-pedi. Eh-hem, gentlemen, we mean YOU too! Nail care is one self-care regimen that we stand behind wholeheartedly. Take an hour out of your day and put the phone away while someone pampers those tired fingers and toes. You’ll thank us later.
4. Try Something New
The best way to show self love or add spice to your coupling is to try something outside your comfort zone. Never been to a sound healing? Try one. Or try taking a meditation, tantra, or yoga class. We only expand our minds by trying something new.
