Self-care step 1: There is no fixed time for smudging. Whenever you want a meditative, de-stressing moment, you can smoke the Smudge Sticks. For an especially clearing effect, it can be helpful if you clean up the room in which you want to light the Smudge Sticks beforehand.
Self-care step 2: Take enough time for your personal smudging ritual, for example to walk from room to room.
Self-care step 3: Ask yourself what you want to achieve today by smudging to find your focus.
Self-care step 4: Light the stick or sticks and blow out the flame. Now you can spread the smoke in the desired space. Please make sure to use a fireproof vessel if you want to smoke in a room permanently.
Self-care step 5: Feel how the olfactory experience clears the room, your body and your mind. How do you feel now?
Note: Please be careful not to leave open fires or glowing sticks unattended.

5 self-care steps to restful sleep with The Good Night.
Self-Care Step 1: Consciously apply the desired amount of cream in the palm of your hand about 30 minutes before you want to go to bed.
Self-Care Step 2: Take deep breaths in and out.
Self-care step 3: Begin to gently spread the cream between your palms. This way you gently warm up the sleeping cream. While doing so, consciously direct your attention to the cream between your hands. Enjoy the light flowery fragrance that The Good Night exudes.
Self-care step 4: It is best to apply the cream to both forearms, the neck and the shoulders. When applying, concentrate on yourself and on noticing your body's signals. Feel the pleasant consistency of the cream glide over your skin. To enhance the relaxing effect, stroke the neck and forearms in a massaging motion. Notice the soothing scent as you slowly settle into bed.
Self-care step 5: Feel the relaxation take hold. How do you feel now?
