By now, we must all be tired of saying it: 2020 has been a challenging year. Possibly, one of the most difficult years of our entire life. Our habits, our hobbies, our social experiences have all been put on hold, in the name of a communal good.
We have been forced to spend a lot of time indoors, sometimes even alone.
With restrictions all over the globe, and some countries still in full lockdown, we at Muse & Heroine have decided to put together a special selfcare bundle, filled with little treats and small luxuries to make our forced at-home weeks a little bit more pleasant and bearable. In our humble opinion, the best way to tackle this sticky situation is to focus on our emotional and physical balance and wellbeing, creating a personal self-love routine, and transforming our home into a sacred space. Wonder how? Here is our advice. Introducing the Muse & Heroine Self-Care Package: Lockdown Edition.

Next Level Beauty Tools
The BODY PLANE tool is inspired by the rituals of ancient Greek and Roman bathhouses. Strigils were metal scraping tools used for oil cleansing from head to toe. Our modern take on the strigil is the Body Plane, crafted from premium teak wood. The stainless steel blunt edge is plated with colloidal sterling silver which is naturally antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, leaving skin soothed and smoothed.
This minimalistic, circular massage brush with 100% medium-strength natural bristles is the ideal brush for your daily dry brush ritual. Body dry brushing is an ancient, Ayurvedic healing method and has numerous benefits for your health and well-being. Just a few minutes of dry brushing each day are enough to sustainably increase your health and energy level!
Ruhi brush was specially designed for dry brushing the body, with the perfect bristle thickness for your skin - not too soft and not too hard! It exfoliates gently and effectively - without scratching.
A tongue cleaner, also known as a tongue scraper, is an ancient detox tool, used in Ayurveda for thousands of years. Bacteria on your tongue multiply while you sleep, feeding on food particles and dead cells. That’s why you wake up with your breath smelling so...unsexy. Use a Tongue Cleaner to scrape bacteria off your tongue, first thing in the morning, it is up to x5 more effective than using a toothbrush.
Adopting this quick, small wellness ritual inspired other good habits and was ultimately the catalyst that helped us quit sugar, fall sick far less often and finally give priority to our health.
Gua Sha is a massage technique from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), where it has been used for thousands of years. Our Gua Sha Tool made of rose quartz can be used alone for facial massage and lymphatic drainage, or for massaging in the Master Elixir, so that the powerful herbal ingredients can be better absorbed by the skin.
