Canadian cozy, curated: The Hygge Holiday Box from Hygge in a Box 🇨🇦

I received the Hygge Holiday Box in exchange for an honest review.

Well the Christmas lights turned into a project this weekend but we finally got them on the tree (not this tree, our big tree) and with the scent of fresh pine in the air and the snow outside the windows I can almost hear the tap-tapping of Santa’s reindeer on the roof. Christmas is just a few days off and I have a to-do list as long as my arm but I’m revelling in the cozy hygge moments of the season.

Real orange peels go into the orange soap blocks; rosemary and tea tree oil scent shampoo bars; and rose petals and rosebuds mingle with Himalayan pink salts and mild Kaolin clay in the rose bath tea. It’s all about feeding the skin with nutritious ingredients — a hobby Amelia started on her maternity leave in 2017 and turned into a business a year later. She called it Nana + Livy after her two young daughters, Natalia and Olivianne, and somehow found the time recently to answer a few questions about the biz.  Continue reading “Nana + Livy handmade vegan bath treats + A giveaway!”
