Aphrodite inspired self care ideas

I absolutely loved putting together my ultimate Disney pamper night post, since it is Valentines coming up I thought I would create another little themed self care edit!
Aphrodite is an ancient Greek goddess thought to inspire love, beauty, passion and enjoyment. Here are some Aphrodite inspired self love and self care ideas, with themes of rose all day, loving your body and of course, beautiful food!

Adorn your space with beautiful art: 
1. Self love girly pamper print πŸ‘ˆπŸ» I love this adorable print, it's so girly and cute

2. Aphrodite art print πŸ‘ˆπŸ» perfect for creating a little Aprodite shrine within your own home and a subtle nod to what she represents

3. Self love body print πŸ‘ˆπŸ» a really cute self love wall print that celebrates the body, a nod to self love and self appreciation within this gorgeous print!

4. Rose quartz art print πŸ‘ˆπŸ» I adore this dreamy rose quartz wall print, it's the most beautiful thing! Perfect for creating a little self love cave or space.

Celebrate everything chocolate: 
5. The most gorgeous Espresso Martini chocolate slab πŸ‘ˆπŸ» the perfect treat yourself gift! Since Aphrodite represents enjoyment and indulgence, these beautiful handmade chocolate slabs are the perfect way to channel her vibes, these look totally delicious and are super affordable too!

6. Rich chocolate room spray πŸ‘ˆπŸ» the most perfect way to celebrate chocolate without eating it is filling your room with its rich and beautiful scent!

7. Cookie Dough whipped soap πŸ‘ˆπŸ» dessert inspired bath and body products are the best! Confusing the senses in the nicest way, this is like dessert for your body.

8. Dreamy massage bars like this chocolate and vanilla body butter bar πŸ‘ˆπŸ» perfect for rubbing over your skin after you take a bath or shower and doesn't come with any unnecessary packaging either. I think this sounds incredible!

9. Chocolate scented wax melts πŸ‘ˆπŸ» I thought I would throw in these amazing hot chocolate scented wax melts, they are incredible, another way to incorportate the scent of chocolate in to every day life! I love to pop wax melts in to drawers to make everything inside smell amazing, they make amazing drawer fresheners!

Adorn yourself with love symbols: 
10. The cutest love potion drinking flask πŸ‘ˆπŸ» how quirky and adorable is this drinking flask? It's love potion inspired, the perfect Aphrodite inspired accessory!

11. Rose quartz necklace πŸ‘ˆπŸ» Aphrodite is closely associated with rose quartz as they both share energies of love, happiness and fulfillment. Rose quartz is said to promote love, healing, a sense of calm and self confidence and is the perfect crystal to take with you to look after you. There are so many pretty rose quartz treasures on Etsy, the matching earrings are gorgeous too!

12. Love potion pin πŸ‘ˆπŸ» this love potion pin is the most adorable thing I have seen, this would look amazing attached to your coat, bag or pencil case!

13. Heart symbols like these Aphrodite pearl heart drop earrings πŸ‘ˆπŸ» they are so swoon worthy, I absolutely love these!

14. Rose quartz crystals πŸ‘ˆπŸ» to inspire love and positivity wherever you go. You can find the best rose quartz tumblestones here, they are perfect for adding to your shelves or in a little pot to create a little self love shrine in any part of your home.

Pamper night essentials: 
15. Love potion scented candle πŸ‘ˆπŸ» richly scented with blueberry and papaya, this is a dreamy fruit cocktail waiting to explode in your room!

16. Rose water facial toner πŸ‘ˆπŸ» a toner is an amazing product to use before your moisturiser, to provide your skin with some extra moisture before locking everything in.

17. Rose clay gentle exfoliating face polish πŸ‘ˆπŸ» this gentle, dreamy and beautiful face mask will be perfect for pamper nights. This will be amazing for all skin types, especially oily, as the clay calms and cleanses the skin and absorbs excess oil.

18. Rose petal hydration mist πŸ‘ˆπŸ» the perfect pamper night essential and rose being one of Aphrodites major symbols, I thought I would include quite a few rose infused products. Rose is known for being gentle and super kind to all skin types, an anti inflammatory, antioxidant ingredient in skincare, it smells incredible too.

19. An actual love potion πŸ‘ˆπŸ» I thought I would also link to this amazing little real life love potion aura mist, containing rose and ylang ylang.

20. Pink bedding - adorn your bed with pink throws and sheets, plus extra pillows to create the illusion of grandeur, the perfect ones are these eco friendly pillows!

21. Elegant desserts - have a go at crafting some beautiful and iconic desserts, like macarons, madeleines or mille feuille vanilla slices to treat both your eyes and tastebuds.

22. Warming scents - like cinnamon, vetiver, ginger, with tonka too, evoke romantic emotions and encourage you to create connections and pursue your dreams. 

I hope you like the treasures I found! Also filling the room with music that makes you move, that will really create an atmosphere of fun and enjoyment and spontaneity and make room for impulsive acts of self love, like making your pyjama drawer smell incredible, baking yummy vegan brownies or making a self love crystal bowl

  6. I love mythology, so this was a fun post to read! I would totally want to drape myself in lush white cloth like an Aphrodite haha, though maybe just for fun at home. Does it count like self-care? :P
