A Healing Box brings hope. Find Healing Boxes at www.healing-boxes.com
We are a non-profit organisation based in Wales making boxes of healing, support and wellness goodies for you.
Six years ago I wanted to send a gift box to a friend in hospital. I looked but couldn’t find anything even remotely suitable, so we made our own. Living with serious illness myself I sent lots of post to similarly bed-bound friends. Word of Healing Boxes spread and we grew from there. Want the whole story? Read on below, dear one.
We have hand-picked items we love and use ourselves to share with you here. When a loved one is sick, when you are just diagnosed and struggling or when a health crisis pops up and you need some extra smiles – that is why Healing Boxes is here.
You can give a gift of cheer, smiles, relaxation and support. Either make your own box up from the selection of products on the website or have a bespoke box designed for you.
The Healing Boxes themselves can, for example, include ginger sweets or tea for nausea, a journal or a c.d of mindfulness mediations for pain, illness and stress. Books, affirmation cards, a smooth glass palm-stone (metal free to hold during scans etc) are all popular items.
We also have information on many health conditions through years of research and so we can include a pack of essential information to save people trawling through google when newly diagnosed. We have found the best and tossed the rest, this is well researched information from reputable sources we ourselves use and love. We make boxes for health crises but also for celebrations. Happy Boxes are available for treats and cheering and we can create boxes for birthdays, graduations, weddings, birthing and pregnancy etc.
Your milestones deserve to be recognised and honoured.
How can I get a box?
At our website www.healing-boxes.com. On the website you can to make up your own box, order a bespoke box personally tailored by me or volunteer and get involved.
Why send a Healing Box?
I feel so passionate about the boxes as I am living with several serious chronic health conditions and so know the importance of support. When housebound, bed-bound or just plain sick, love and parcels can take on a big importance and can make your whole day. The products we include in the boxes are things we have personally used and loved. We tailor the boxes to you.
After all, if someone is in hospital, after bringing fruit and flowers what do you give? If someone has just been diagnosed with a serious illness and a “get well soon” card won’t quite cut it or just isn’t appropriate what can you send?
When a loved one is ill and your heart is hurting for them and you just wish there was something you could give them or do to make the whole awful experience a little easier…. that’s why I make Healing Boxes.
We use our years of experience living with chronic illness and my huge mentality towards research and investigation to seek out the most needed and best products available for the boxes. We have extensively surveyed communities living with and caring for a wide range of health conditions and people overwhelmingly love Healing Boxes.
We buy the products at wholesale prices which, as we are non-profit, is how we can offer them so afford-ably to you. An equivalent range of products bought online or on the high street would be much greater. We’ve brought them all together, from Britain, USA and Europe, saving you the time and postage costs of sourcing them yourself.
Healing Boxes stands for compassion, sparkle, enlightenment, comfort, an organic, vegan, ethical, service which is caring and thoughtful. I did all this before I got paid for it. I used to do this without pay, but being paid allows me to bring Healing Boxes to the world.
What’s your story?
So we created our own box. It was such a hit, we made more for other friends. Soon they were requested by friends of friends and we were getting referrals, unfortunately it was all from our own money and unofficial. We realised that the boxes deserved a wider audience. After a deeper personal health crisis (potentially cancer but then was actually an osteoporosis diagnosis) I threw away my fears and threw myself into making Healing Boxes a reality. My own story is over in the Bio. How do you do?
“Thank you so much..it cannot fail to bring hope into and light to even the bleakest and dreariest day. Your willness to help has lifted a great weight from my mind as I had started to lose hope and feel alone. The information you have sent is wonderful. Thank you.” Ian – living with M.E, fibromyalgia and a heart condition.
“Healing Boxes- is a non-profit organization run by a family that is so in-tune with you that once you receive a box small, medium, or large you feel that no other gift or show of caring will do for a friend or family member.
They are customized beyond belief and having been a reciepent of all three sizes and types I have completely been taken aback by the inate ability of the owners to zero in on just what is needed at that moment to cheer up a loved on who is ill, someone in the grieving process and many other reasons.
I also think that make fabulous executive thank you’s for companies you do business with and have that special hand worked touch that is superior to any company I have every been in contact with. Give the specialist the parameters and ideas you have and watch while a gift is sent that could not sooth, comfort, thank, or express friendship to romance better.
But most especially Healing Boxes do just what the name implies. They give that extra bit fo fairy dust to a person who is ill that allows them to feel special, loved and cherished. I will always use them as gifts of love and comfort and hope you do too. You will not be disappointed. And if life has you down order one for yourself and have a little fairy dust spread into your own life.”- Dr. Callie Broussard-Wheeler president and founder of Basic Missions www.basicmissions.com
“Your box has been the only thing that has made me smile for ages, love you to bits because people like you make the world a special place. I use the affirmation cards every day and they help lend me the strength to face my day” – Nicola Berry, Artist and Art Therapist. Founder of Works of Heart, art therapy charity.
