Aloe Bud is your self-care companion.

It’s not your parent(s), partner, friend, or a random person on the Internet telling you what to do. Aloe Bud is your future self, reminding you to put your present self first.

Aloe gently brings awareness to activities of daily life, using encouraging push notifications, rather than guilt or shame. Helpful reminders from yourself, to yourself; saved within Aloe Bud so you can keep doing you!

What areas of self-care do you need more of in your life?

Whether you're trying to stay hydrated, or need reminders to reconnect with loved ones. Check in and reflect on yourself in real-time or whenever you need. Aloe Bud should feel casual, yet play an important role in your life.

We offer 11 self-care-related activities for you to choose from. It’s 100% up to you to set up your dashboard and work towards building accountability by checking in with yourself using push notifications.

Aloe Bud sends reminders ONLY when asked and can be set at specific times from daily to weekdays, weekends, or any other arrangement you can think of. Reminders bring awareness to important activities that get lost amidst life.

Celebrate tiny victories in your personal activity log, which can be accessed when you touch the icon at the top. Scroll through recently completed check in’s and reflections and look back on your progress day by day.

It’s not meant to and should not replace mental health care or the support of loved ones, but it is a valuable—and free—tool to help bridge gaps in making self-care as accessible and personal as possible.

Aloe Bud can be fully enjoyed for free, but if you would like to enhance your experience and help support our growth, we offer in-app purchases. It allows you to add as many self-care activities, check in’s, journal, and activity log entries, as well as unlimited customization reminder schedules.

Designed out of the pure necessity of their own mental health struggles; Aloe Bud creator Serenity Discko searched the App Store for something, anything to help with basic self-care. After trying and ignoring countless self-care apps and feeling guilty for doing so, finding one that met their needs and lifestyle became frustrating. They believed there was no better time to start designing a gentle, all-in-one personal care app, using their own experiences, an affinity for pixel art, and the needs of their communities to bring this simple idea to life.

Found what I was looking for!

I always feel glum and lost. I have loads of ideas and there are a lot of things I want to do accomplish, but I just can’t get them done because I lose the motivation and energy to complete them. This app is exactly what I need. Not only does it remind me to start reaching for my goals, it also pushes me to finish them too. At times when I feel defeated, it inspires me to keep going. I love this app!

Positive, caring app

I installed a beta version years ago and set some reminders for drinking water and eating. I never took them very seriously, but the apps positive and encouraging tone has now made them a reassuring, calming part of my day. Can’t say much about the more advanced features but 5 stars for being well-intentioned, continuing to support the app, and continuing to be cute and free.

(Mini) diary of a plague year

Incredibly effective, lightweight tool for tracking self care tasks during the apocalypse (When did I last go outside? Did I eat? ...showers?) with gentle reinforcement rewards in the form of sounds and graphics. Gentle reminders to take medication, get some fresh air and recharge prove invaluable in a world on fire.
