Have A Happy Galentine’s Day: 3 Ways To Treat Yourself & Your Gals

If you’re single this Valentine’s Day, don’t mope over a box of chocolates and a weepy film when you could live it up and celebrate your freedom. Some women get really down on themselves when Valentine’s Day rolls around and they don’t have someone to share it with, but is this really you? It doesn’t have to be.

Just because you may not have a lover to have a romantic evening with doesn’t mean you can’t grab another gal pal (or two or three!) and have your very own ladies get-together; Galentine’s is all about ladies celebrating ladies after all!


What is Galentine’s day?

First seen in an episode of “Parks and Recreation” where Amy Poehler’s character throws her annual Galentine’s bash, which falls on the 13th of February, this pseudo holiday has transcended the TV screen and is now a real holiday celebrated by women everywhere.

So whether you’re in a committed relationship or a single gal, gather your girls and enjoy your Galentine’s. Here are a few ways you can treat yourself and feel like a Queen this Galentine’s day.

It’s all about the bubbles

Ladies, we aren’t talking only about a bubble bath here. Add a glass (or two) of champagne while you’re at it.

Before you head out for your Galentine’s party, or perhaps taking time to unwind afterward, run a steamy bath and don’t be afraid to pour in those bubbles! Just make sure you choose a bubble bath that is organic and natural, so you fill your bath with skin lovin’ ingredients, like natural oils or a little chamomile to help deepen that sense of calm.

Pour yourself a glass of the good stuff (we’re not judging you girl!) and sink into those bubbles, emerging now and then to take a sip of your fizz.

Grab Your essential oils

Scent is so powerful and certain scents have the power to transport you back to a cherished memory or lift you out of a funk. Essential oils are a wonderful way to fill your home with beautiful aromatherapy scents that leave you feeling good. And there’s a scent for every mood…

If you’re feeling romantic, diffuse some rose; jasmine if you’re feeling sensual; lavender to soothe and calm; and orange to lift your spirits. 

And you can always take the aromatherapy benefits of essential oils one step further and slather yourself in them. CaLoveCo.’s silky, creamy and oh-so-decadent body butters are formulated with rich shea, mango and cocoa butters, luxurious oils, and they’re scented with all natural oils.

Not only will you feel like an absolute goddess, your senses will be treated to a wonderful aromatic aromatherapy experience. Not to mention the healthy-skin glow you’ll get so you can flaunt your natural beauty.

These are just three ways you can pamper yourself so you can feel like the Queen you are this Galentine’s Day.
