I get two day a year to do whatever I want. Two days a year that I don’t have to cook or clean. These two days are Mother’s Day and my birthday. Since Mother’s Day is just around the corner, I agreed to do a review of a Spicy Subscriptions monthly Box. They sent me the April Deluxe Spice Box to review and keep. Among the items in it was one product that I am not going to talk about, and I did not put in the picture. I apologize in advance if this upsets Spicy Subscriptions. My kids read my blog. Moms with young children read it with their kids in the room. Need I say more?
The items I want to talk about are designed to pamper yourself. They are from the DONA line in their store. I received the DONA cleanse body scrub, the DONA Sensual Chromotherapy, and the DONA Sensual Massage oil. The DONA Sensual Chromotherapy is an aromatic liquid that changes the color of your bath water. You use the amount you want to get the desired color. All three of these products have a fruity scent to them. I immediately thought of oranges when I used them.
My favorite of the three is the massage oil. I’ve been having problems with my neck and upper back. My husband used the DONA Sensual Massage oil to massage the areas that have been hurting me. When he started rubbing the oil in, I could feel my skin warming up. My muscles started to relax, and the pain eased up. It did more good for me than the medicines my doctor had me on.
I also enjoyed taking some time in the bath tub to review the body scrub and chromotherapy. I don’t usually get time to take a bath. It’s a quick shower, and then back out to take care of the kids. It was so nice to just relax, and let my husband take care of the kids. Afterwards, I felt relaxed and ready to deal with anything.
That’s one of the reasons that I agreed to do this review before Mother’s Day. If you are looking for something special to celebrate Mother’s Day with, Spicy Subscriptions is a good idea. It makes a great gift for the mom that is constantly stressed out. Moms of autistic children deal with a high level of stress. It becomes a part of our life. Sometimes, the stress can get so bad that our body starts to fight back. I believe that is what has been happening to me with my neck and back problems. I’m so over-stressed that my body is starting to rebel.
This review was the perfect reminder that I don’t take care of myself the way I should. It’s a reminder of how much my family depends on me to take care of myself, so that I can take care of them. With the Spicy Subscriptions monthly boxes, you get a variety of full-sized products and samples. You can also visit The Spice Shop to purchase the items individually. Spicy Subscriptions has provided a coupon code for my readers. It’s autismlearningfelt, and is good for 5% off of your order. I think you will enjoy their boxes as much as I enjoyed mine.
