It’s nice to share, isn’t it? Especially when it’s things you love!
1: Mahanarayan Oil
I’d been using some oils from Banyan Botanicals for a while, then one day read about Mahanarayan Oil, which they make. I don’t find it really does much for joints, although I use it to massage my feet in the morning — but boy, any time I have a muscle ache this is da bomb!
You can buy it here (Amazon Affiliate link). I bought the smallest bottle, by the way, but I couldn’t generate a link for it; the link is to a larger bottle. I’ve been using it for 2 months, so a little goes a long way.
2: Self massage
I have taken to doing some self massage before showering these days (see one of my new favorite oils above). That’s part of my solution for no longer getting massages (someday I will!). It really is so relaxing (and good for your health!). Mr. Judy also gives me the occasional back rub, and never asks for one in return. I massage my feet each morning.
3: The gift that keeps on giving
That would be my husband’s 60th birthday gift — remember that infrared outdoor patio heater? Well, it never really got used outside; too awkward to take in and out, not to mention the amazing amount of rain we had last Summer. Not to fear, I sit with it warming me almost every day of the Winter. I didn’t buy it for myself — except in the end, apparently I did.
4: The other gift that keeps on giving
Several years ago my husband gave me a towel warmer. I love that thing so much! I use it to warm the towels, sure. I also use it to warm my clothes so I can change into nice warm clothes. Or to finish drying something that didn’t completely dry in the dryer.
5: An early birthday present
I only buy from Etsy once in a blue moon (my last purchase was at least a year ago) but I bought myself a couple of crystals that I totally love, and they threw in an extra small geode.
I admit I have a love/hate relationship with February. It tends to be the worst month of the Winter, but it’s my birthday, and I embrace birthdays. Why not celebrate? It feels better to celebrate than to feel depressed. Sometimes it’s just the little things, like a nice foot massage.

Do you think you’d enjoy doing a foot massage (or at least your feet would enjoy it)?
