Micrate Review, a Healing Natural Box

My Migraine Life review

I was given Micrate (pronounced my-crate) to review*.  It is the loveliest healing natural box curated by a fellow migraine fighter!  Filled with self care items, I used the products both quickly and had some that lasted.  It is a great gift for Valentine’s Day and everyday! Who doesn’t love a box of care sent to their house?

The idea is finding the best natural products for migraineurs and making them easily and affordably available in one place.-Micrate

Overall, I love how this box showered (pun intended) me with self care items that satisfied my cravings, soothed my body and mind while becoming part of my routine.

Shower Steamers

Each steamer contains dried lavender and chamomile as well as the following essential oils: peppermint, rosemary, and eucalyptus, all known for their calming and pain-soothing properties.

I love baths but don’t always have the time or energy to take one.  Standing under a hot shower loosens my head, neck and shoulders while enjoying the benefits of aromatherapy.  Inhaling the steamer for sinus and pain relief followed by the muscle salve is great combo.

*Note, anyone sensitive to smell should check the ingredients.  I found these products to be subtle and calming but everyone reacts differently. Knowing what triggers and soothes is an individualized circumstance.  I love lavender!

Muscle Ache Salve

…specifically chosen for their anti-inflammatory and nerve calming properties, as well as their ability to regulate circulation

Micrate tea and carob treats

Typically, I love coffee and crave chocolate.  In the evenings, I reach for tea and enjoyed it while loving the substitute for my normal chocolate fix.  I love that the treats don’t have corn.  I have a corn sensitivity and find it hard to find sweets without it. Yum!

Organic Teas

Herbs such as lavender, chamomile, and lemon balm are used for their ability to relieve stress and anxiety. While lemongrass and valerian root both have natural pain-relieving properties.

Carob Treats, from Missy J’s

…free from gluten, refined cane sugar, dairy, caffeine, soy, corn & GMO’s

In conclusion, yum!  These were delicious!  

Crystal Amethyst Roller

…aid in circulation, pain relief, and relaxation, and even easing tension in the eye muscles

Dry Body Brush with Massage Nodes

It can help stimulate lymphatic drainage and calm the sympathetic nervous system.

I have  incorporated the roller and dry brush into my routine. I did a bit pinterest searching about these products and found a way to use them that makes me feel good.  The dry brush is invigorating and the crystal roller is cool and feels great on my skin and aching face.

In conclusion, I think this box is an amazing gift.  I would recommend it to anyone who needs a little extra care. It’s a box that offers some new items to add into a routine and a variety of items to enjoy.

    This is a great idea for a self-care & healing box, and I love the variety of things to try. The ache ease muscle stuff looks quite good in combination with the roller and dry brush. Thanks for the review, it’s interesting to see all the boxes available out there at the moment! =]
