The May 2021 Self-Care Box


Before In Mzansi, Ease was a physical business. The first self-care box was a physical one, which was delivered in the first week of May 2021. You can view the contents below, buy them at your leisure, download the guidebook and enjoy a month of self-care whenever you want.

The May 2021 box contained: a chocolate brownie from The Baker’s Delicacies; a pot plant from PotsaboutPlantsCT; a pack of The Secret Love Project stickers; S Collection tissue oil, body lotion and perfume; a Loose Sketchings postcard; tips from psychology practice Sage Therapy; a discount coupon for golden hour glo; and access to a community of self-care devotees, suggestions for self-care practice, and community activities. One lucky subscriber also found a pair of Andalusia pearl studs from klassik in their box.

Spotlighting Brands in the Box

Behind each item is a wonderful small business made up of dedicated founders and creators. Here are just some of the fabulous brands featured in this box.
