Caretaker Quiz Results
Caretakers, we see you being the rock in your family and community.
You brilliantly balance the needs of other people, showering your loved ones with the care and attention that make their hearts sing.
We see your constant outpouring of love and care. We see the countless sacrifices you make in a day. Whether it’s your children, a parent, a sick loved one, or simply the people in your life, you always show up for the team and give it your all.
But do your needs keep falling last on the list?
Even with your inspirational patience and unshakeable commitment, your system can still get overloaded. The toll of caretaking may make you feel strained and drained, exhausted and worn-out.
You’ve given all you have to give and there’s still more to be done! We’ve been there too. Balancing the need for self-care with taking care of others is a delicate act.
These routines and products have worked for us, and we hope they bring some balance to you.

The 5-Minute Time Out
Sometimes five minutes to yourself is all you can manage. With Kiskanu’s Botanical Day Drops, you can feel the calming, mood-lifting effects of CBD in as little as 5 minutes. These botanical drops are non-intoxicating, meaning it won’t get you “high,” so you can still be clear-headed as you take care of your responsibilities. Blended with calendula, lavender, comfrey, and chamomile, these drops can help you feel calm and focused.
We recommend taking a five minute “time out,” starting slow with 0.25ml (approximately 8.25mg of CBD), and a quick hit of meditation. Close your eyes if you need to, take a few deep breaths, and practice self-compassion. Once you’re grounded, you’ll be able to get back in the game. Note: If you’re not feeling the desired effects, add another 5-15 mg and repeat.
The End-of-Day Hurray!
You’ve made it to the end of the day, congratulations! While it can be all too easy to collapse on the couch or get lost in our phones once the day’s work is done, a nightly self-care routine is a great way to manage stress and start tomorrow feeling refreshed.
Our recommendation for a caretaker who deserves to take care of themselves? A head-to-toe massage with Kiskanu's Skin Rub. This light, nourishing salve can deeply moisturize your skin and ease muscle stiffness. And massage is always a great way to circulate blood, reduce stress, promote relaxation, and even support your endocannabinoid system.
However you decide to practice, having a self-massage routine makes for the perfect end to another day, one where you took care of what matters most.
Looking for breast health support?
Caretaking can have its toll on our emotions, and that stress can lead to poor drainage of toxins through our lymphatic system, especially in our chests. One of the best ways to support your breast health is by practicing regular lymphatic or breast massage.
Bosm’s Breast Health Oil is has carefully-selected and well-researched ingredients to help detoxify and nourish our breasts and lymphatic system while encouraging us to develop a relationship with our bosom through the practice of massage.
