5 Fabulous Self-Love Tips for Valentine’s Day (and Every Day)


For some, Valentine’s Day, celebrated annually, is an incredibly special and sensual time for those in a relationship. For others, it can be downright depressing and excruciatingly painful to once again be single at this time of year. Whether you are coupled up or eating for one, this post is for you.

Saint Valentine’s Day, a holiday originally known as the feast day of Saint Valentine, has historical and religious origins that have evolved into a cultural and commercial celebration of romance and love.

We think that learning to love yourself is THE most important lifelong lesson we all need to master. If we are unable to love all parts of ourselves, we cannot declare to the world that we love another person. Love changes with time; it eases us into letting go of everything we thought we knew and dissolves stress and tension. It is the only thing that is real.

Here are our top 5 tips to fall in love with you…

1. Observe your thoughts

Practice Kindness Towards Yourself

Think only kind and loving thoughts towards yourself. Everyone makes mistakes, and nobody's perfect; to practice self-love and kindness is crucial for personal growth. Embracing your imperfections is part of the journey. Love is the ultimate building block of the Universe. It is the very essence of all Creation. Humans are born into the arms of loving parents and ideally die with their loved ones around them. We live and die by love alone and in the words of Gautama Buddha: “In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.”

The Power of Positive Psychology and Affirmations

Your ability to love yourself and others is all that really matters, and when we begin the journey of taking better care of ourselves, all life benefits. According to the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation, self-love is a state of appreciation and respect for oneself, encompassing kindness, self-forgiveness, refraining from self-judgment, and valuing one's worth. They also highlight the health benefits of self-love, emphasizing its positive impact on mental and physical well-being.

Positive affirmations are NOT about living on a cloud; they are a conversation that we are having with our subconscious minds and everything in our reality. Speak to yourself with kindness, care, and love, even when you are struggling or going through the most difficult times. Taking care of yourself is essential for your mental health, emotional well-being, and overall well-being.

Building self-esteem is crucial in self-care, as it enhances happiness and focus and reduces stress and anxiety.

Think Big and Take Action

Having a bit of positive thinking can help you realise things that were never thought possible. Thinking big is possible and the life you have imagined is on its way to you if you do the work on yourself. It is important to nurture the relationship with yourself alongside relationships with friends and co-workers.

Commit to yourself as well as those you love to create powerfully a life you can love. Instead of reacting, commit to creating from your heart and soul, out of love rather than fear. Recognise and embrace the thought that each moment is perfect regardless of its outcome. Prioritise your own needs to enhance your well-being and set healthy boundaries.

2. Food gratitude

We give thanks to the earth for the sustenance, bounty, and abundance of optimum health and healing. We know that self-love and self-care very much include how we look after the earth, and when we look after the earth, the earth takes care of us. Find ways to be grateful every day.

3. Self Care with Essential Oils and Candles

Aromatherapy for Mental Health and Physical Well-being

Aromatherapy is very effective in making you feel good mentally and physically by the way it affects your senses. What you see, touch, and feel affects you in your daily life, either in a positive, negative, or even neutral way. Aromatherapy slots in as a positive influence as it treats your mind and body through your sense of smell, restoring and promoting balance when you need it most.

The Benefits of Different Essential Oils

For example, if you feel stressed, plants like lavender will help you to relax. If you breathe the lavender scent, it will soothe you. So will the oils when absorbed through the skin either through massage or when you have a bath. If an illness made you feel low in energy, essences like mint will give you that extra stimulus to make you spring back into action. They act as stimuli on the brain, provoking a reaction in your chemical makeup through your sense of smell and through the skin.

Aromatherapy has become the alternative medicine of choice for women in the busy society we live in. It is a benefit because the oils and scents are pure and natural. But, of course, you cannot legislate for substances you might be allergic to, even ones that are considered benign.

The Healing Power of Candles

Candles play a significant role in boosting mental health and well-being. The legend of Saint Valentine restoring sight to the jailer's daughter adds to the theme of love and healing associated with candles. The soft glow of candlelight creates a calming atmosphere, reducing stress and anxiety. Infused with essential oils, candles provide aromatherapy benefits. For instance, lavender-scented candles help you unwind, while peppermint candles invigorate and boost energy. Lighting a candle during meditation or a bath enhances relaxation, promoting peace and tranquility. Incorporating candles into your self-care routine is a simple, effective way to create a soothing environment that supports mental and emotional health.

4. Get moving!

The Importance of Exercise

Life can be difficult and full of worries, and when you’re not taking good care of yourself, things can become quite demanding. Just as Saint Valentine faced immense challenges under the control of the Roman emperor while ministering to persecuted Christians, we too must emphasize resilience and self-care. Without a proper diet and exercise, along with proper sleep, you could find yourself running down extremely fast. This causes unwanted stress and anxiety in our everyday lives. A major part of improving your personal life revolves around elements that can keep you from going off the deep end.

Simple Steps to Stay Active

Getting the right exercise for your body does not consist of trying out for a marathon. Walk for 30 minutes twice a day with a backpack containing up to five books. Instead of having an extra alcoholic beverage, eliminate it, replacing it with water. Substitute daily one serving of starchy carbohydrates with two servings of green vegetables. Rather than skipping breakfast and lunch and overeating on snacks, try snacking consisting of five small meals daily.

Benefits of Massage Therapy

Massage therapy offers many benefits. It helps to start your day relaxed, which is essential for balance. A simple practice would be starting at your head and scalp. What people fail to realise is that until they have massages, they do not know how much stress they are carrying. Once you have an awareness of where stress is lodged in your body, you’ll know exactly which pressure points to work.

5. Surround yourself with beautiful bouquets of flowers

The Power of Flower Therapy

The study of flower therapy has shown that not only the scents but also the colours of our favourite blooms affect us positively. This science is known as flower therapy and extends to categories such as aromatherapy, as many of the essential oils we know and love are made from flower-extracted oils. Flower remedy had its beginnings in ancient civilisations and is currently making a strong comeback in other countries. The idea behind it is the natural ability of flowers to help us feel better, ultimately helping to treat and prevent diseases.

Brighten Your Mood with Flowers

The sight and smell of flowers, especially when received as a gorgeous bouquet, help brighten moods, and the positive effect remains as long as the flowers are blooming. As common as flowers are after lovers’ fights or hospital stays, flowers never become common themselves. This is because they truly manage to inspire calmness and happiness, which helps us to overcome the emotional distresses that keep us down at night.

Spoil yourself this Valentine's Day, or celebrate, just because, with our exquisite Valentine's Day gift boxes and Valentine's Day flowers collection. Treat yourself or someone special to the joy and beauty of fresh, lovingly arranged flowers that bring warmth and happiness to any space.

The flowers are representative of healing and self-love.


In specifics, pink and white roses go with healing and self-love. Pink roses are symbolic of thanks, grace, and joy, while white ones stand for peace and purity, which are very important during the processes of healing and self-acceptance.


More specifically, Stargazer Lilies and St Joseph Lilies connect with healing and renewal. The lilies symbolize purity and devotion; thus, very befittingly, being used on a journey of self-love and inner peace.

When incorporated into your daily life, be it through fresh bouquets, essential oils, or floral-themed decor, a nurturing, healing environment will be set.

The Impact of Colours and Scents

The first thing we always notice about flowers is their appearance. Be it a joyously bright bouquet or a quiet pastel, one day, the colours grasp our attention and our emotions. Colours are made of light-wave frequencies, and these frequencies travel down the optic nerve into the brain. There is evidence that different light waves can cause the production of hormones in our body, which, depending on the frequency, can calm, stimulate, or improve our moods.

The sense of smell may not catch sight of a bouquet as quickly as our eyes, but may very well have a stronger influence over our emotions. The part of our brain interpreting emotions is the same part that interprets the olfactory sense. Scents and mood are closely tied; a smell often brings back memories, which inevitably bring up feelings – good or bad, depending on the association. Thanks to the delightful smell of flowers, they more often than not overflow us with positive emotions and memories.
