Best Gifts for Relaxation
Before I tell you about some of the best Montana Gift Corral products to help you relax, let’s do a little relaxation exercise. Find a comfortable chair to sit in. Close your eyes. Focus on your breath; gently inhaling for a count of four, hold it for four, and exhale 1...2...3...4. Starting at the top, relax your face, unfurrow your brow and unclench your jaw. Now relax your shoulders and let your arms rest limply on the arms of your chair or lightly in your lap. Feel the chair beneath your thighs and your feet against the floor. Take a moment and just...breathe.
I don’t know anyone who isn’t due for an evening of self-care and relaxation. We’re here to share some of the items that will help you let go of all that stress and tension.
If you’re like me, you know how lighting a good candle can almost instantly help you unwind after a long day. Boondocks Candle Co. in Ennis, Montana makes some of the absolute best scented candles to help your worries melt away. Boondocks Candles will take you to the places they’re named after: smell the summer sweetness of Flathead Cherry, the gentle refreshing air of Fairy Lake, and the rich scent of ponderosa pine along Jack Creek.
When I think of relaxation, I imagine drawing a bath and sinking into the warm water. To get the best bath (or shower) experience use Windrift Hill Goat’s Milk Soap. With a wide range of fragrances inspired by the natural beauty of Montana, there’s something for everyone. No preservatives are used in the making of these soaps, just high quality fragrances and essential oils. Windrift Hill makes all their products in Montana with help from their goats, a herd of 40 happy, healthy Nubian Goats who spend their days grazing in the shadows of the Rocky Mountains. Your skin will feel replenished with Windrift Hill moisturizing goat’s milk soap!
