As we settle into 2021, we are reminded that self-care was one of the best tools to manage all of the twists and turns of last year. February brings the season of love and while we’re all about celebrating our loved ones this Valentine’s Day, perhaps this should also be the year of self love. Maybe this year, Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be about romantic love, but could be more about unconditional love… for ourselves.
If we’ve learned anything from 2020 it’s that self-care shouldn’t be on the backburner. The energy and care you show to others should be a mirror for the love you show yourself. Whether your self-care rituals include journaling, baking, meditation, buying yourself fresh flowers, lighting scented candles, yoga or walking in nature, the most important thing is that you are making time to practice radical self love.
Your celebration of yourself for Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to mean you’re solo. It might also involve friends and family and take the form of a dance party in your kitchen, a Galentine’s Day Zoom, or a home spa day. No matter how you decide to spend the holiday, our wish for you is that you create experiences that bring you joy and happiness on this day of love.
Of course, a Vosges Valentine’s Day wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without chocolate, so we wanted to share the collections that we think are the perfect addition to your self love practices and soirees.
If you are still looking for gift ideas for the special people in your life, we’ve got you covered with our list of the best chocolate for Valentine’s Day.
This limited edition set contains two of our most prized comfort foods: Caramel Marshmallows and Peanut Butter Bonbons. Light, fluffy marshmallows meet caramel, nuts and cacao and rich peanut butter is paired with chocolate and pink salt, for two treats just right for an indulgent party of one.
Celebrate your beauty with these beauties. Our Bombalinas are made with our proprietary ganache blended with I.G.P. Piemonte hazelnuts and Reishi mushroom. They are layered on top of Dulce de Leche and finished with cacao nibs and a touch of 23-karat gold. They are truly jewels, just like you.
The Sacred Love Tower is the ultimate Valentine's Day gift and includes two of our limited edition Sacred Love Collection. At the base of the tower is our most adored Bastet – A Sacred Hi Vibe Chocolate Collection. Worthy of a warrior goddess and dedicated to this fiery protector, this limited edition Valentine's Day heart-shaped box is as extraordinary as Bastet herself. At the top of the tower is our exclusive 15-piece Eternal Love Truffle Collection. These heart-shaped boxes are a wonderful love letter to yourself!
Strong rituals created in a sacred space, belief in your intention and eating chocolate with focused energy can heal through the activation of mind, body and spirit. These sacred personal cacao ceremonies better align us with our purpose because they allow us to radiate our intentions and express our willingness to receive. Our Self-Love Ritual Collection is housed in our new ritual collection gift box and includes our nine-piece Dark Chocolate Truffle Collection, Shining Light Palo Santo bundle with Selenite crystal*, Hartley and Marks amethyst silk journal and a guided ritual card.
*At times crystals may vary in the collection due to availability.
Crafted with adaptogens and superior source ingredients, this curated collection of six wellness chocolate bars includes an assortment of our bestselling wellness parfums. Perfect for any occasion, the chocolate bars are presented in a keepsake library box. Self love often calls for a balance of wellness and decadence, which is why we have a Honey Bar Chocolate sauce recipe made just that.
Keep the self love going long past February 14th with a monthly delivery of chocolates.
These indulgences will be delivered monthly for three, six or twelve months and include our classic and bestselling collections, as well as, items from our kitchen and Lab. It’s a great way to spread the self love throughout the year and be in the know about all of Vosges’ newest creations.
With all of these chocolate gifts, we encourage you to find the space and time to have your own ritual for self love. We have included this one for your use:
LET US BEGIN…
Prepare your gift of chocolate for YOU. All of our chocolates are crystallized in a healing sound frequency tunnel of 528Hz to infuse loving and healing energy.
Journal three things for which you are grateful to yourself. Connect with your body by breathing. Visualize loving yourself as you are right now.
Begin to heal parts of your body by addressing the relationship you have with those parts. Place your hands on your body that you often criticize and send loving energy and thoughts to this area.
Repeat the ho'oponopono words, "Thank you. I’m sorry. Forgive me. I love you.”
Notice how the energy shifts in your body. Send the intention of nourishment and love into the chocolate. Breathe seven times, deeply.
Say out loud: I am at love. I am in love. I am love. They are love. Close your eyes and visualize this for 11 minutes and 11 seconds.
Open your eyes and taste. As the chocolate melts into your mouth, notice all sensory cues: how it sounds, feels, smells, looks and tastes.
Place your hands gently over your heart. Close your eyes and know in your heart and soul that love surrounds and guides you.
May this ritual guide you. And if you can take away anything from what we’ve shared, remember this…
You deserve infinite amounts of good energy.
It is yours to make, so make it. You are already a hero.
You have everything you need.
You are beautiful and so very worthy of love. It is your birthright.
You are worth loving.
Care for yourself.
Open your heart and forgive yourself.
Loving yourself allows you to love others and they to love you.
However you celebrate Valentine’s Day, we hope that you serve up a gift of love for yourself this year. It could be the best Valentine’s Day gift you’ve ever received.
