Goddess Provisions April 2018| Live your truth, Visualize your truth, Speak your truth.

I *sadly* arrived back from Cancun yesterday. When I checked my mailbox I did find this months Goddess Provisions box, which made me a bit more happy about returning to cold and boring Missouri.

This months Box is all about your Chakras. Which I admittedly know nothing about. Good thing this month came with a free digital download to teach you how to open your throat, third eye, and crown chakras.

This months mantra: “I’m aligned with my highest truth.”

Kailo Crown Essence $42 Value

This oil is meant to help align your crown chakra. You are supposed to roll it on, breath deeply and visualize the color violet. While you do this you are supposed to repeat bija mantra OM or the affirmations. I am going to have to educated my self a bit more.

Thistle Dry Shampoo $15

I love a good natural dry shampoo. I have eczema on my scalp, so most store bought dry shampoo send up making me itch pretty badly. I do wish the packaging was a bit more sturdy. As you can tell, mine arrived dented.

Little Moon Essentials Mist Clear Skies Ahead $3

I love the Little Moon Essentials company. I have so salt soaks. I also have another aromatherapy mist that I keep at work. This specific one has a very relaxing scent and I know I will get a ton of use out of it. It’ll probably end up at work as well sense it is meant to relieve stress.

Rainbow Symphony Sun Catchers $10

These gem decals are very cute. They are meant to open your third eye with the rainbow of light. I can’t wait to put them on my window, they are going to look very pretty.

Spirit Whispering Crystal Grid $10

I know nothing about Crystal grids. Like, at all. I am definitely going to have to do a bit of reading on them before I form any type of opinion.

White Sage Bundle $5

I do know a bit about sage. And I know everything needs a bit of cleansing and healing every now and then. I have never burned sage, maybe starting this practice will rid my space of some of the negative energy around me.

Bixby and Co Blueberry Whippersnapper $3

This energy bar sounds delicious!! I am going to take it to work as a mid day snack when I need energy. I also don’t want to wait to eat it because it sounds amazing.

“Carry this throat Chakra stone when you want to speak your truth.”

I am taking this as it is meant to give you confidence when you are going to be saying something you find important. Like a speech, or an important conversation. I like this a lot. I find it hard to speak to people in general, much less when it is important.

That is this months Box! I definitely have a lot to learn, and I am excited to further my self on my spiritual journey.

Thank you for reading 💜

Goddess Provisions March 2018 | Tap into your body’s wisdom

I was very happy to come home today and find my Goddess Provisions Box on my bed. I had a fantastic experience with last months Box, so I was really looking forward to this one.

This months Box is centered all around Ayurvedic Wellness, and I am very intrigued. I have had some Ayurvedic products in Vegan Cuts boxes, so I have been interested in learning more for a while.

Monthly mantra: “I’m aligned in body, mind, and spirit.”

Idiots Guide to Ayurvedic By Sahara Rose $20

I can not wait to read this. I really want a better understanding of Ayurveda, and I believe this book will be very helpful.

Paavani Tridoshic Spritzer $12

“Aromatherapy mist for harmonizing all three sos has featuring lavender, geranium, and cedar.”

The scent is lovely and very calming. Once I learn more I am interested to see how well this product works.

Copper Cup Turmeric Latte $19

This latte mix is meant to reduce inflammation in the body.

I am not the biggest coffee fan, I prefer teas. But, my person loves coffee so I will probably have him give this a try.

Gonesh Sandalwood Incense Cones $2

I love the scent of sandalwood and I really enjoy burning incense. Sandalwood is a scent I find very relaxing, so I am sure I’ll get a ton of use out of these.

Copper Tongue Scraper $10

This instrument is meant to remove buildup and bacteria from your tongue. I have never heard of one of these, I am going to have to do a bit of research.

Balanced Guru Scalp Treatment $11.50

“Relax your mind and body with a gentle head massage using this scalp treatment that delivers nourishing Botanicals straight to your roots.”

I really like the idea of this product. I do get really bad eczema on my scalp though, so I am hoping this won’t cause a flare up if I try it.

Ahimsa Essentials Zen Oil Blend $13

This blend is made of lavender, peppermint, and bergamot. It smells fantastic. It is very close to the oil blend I have already been using and loving at night. I already know I am going to love this oil.

Carnelian $2

“Good for Pitta imbalance, this stone promotes self-empowerment, boosts will power, enhances vitality, and amplifies life force energy.”

This crystal seems like the perfect worry stone for work. I think I am going to place it on my desk and fidget with it when I become anxious or unmotivated. It is also just really nice to look at, I love the warm orange and brown tones.

That is it for this months GP box. I love everything and I am really glad a book was included! 🐦🐦🐦🐦🐦 out of five pigeons!

What is your favorite aromatherapy products??

Thank you so much for reading 💜

One of my new years resolutions was to stop being such a big baby and just do things that I want. This included making Youtube videos. I decided to make my first one about a company that is dear to me. It is not makeup related like what I will usually be doing. But, it would still mean the world to me if you would check it out, subscribe, and thumbs it up!

Watch it here!

Please tell me what you think and suggest future videos! Anyone else new to this, let’s learn and grow together!

Zoe Organics Refresh Oil | An Organic Review.

zo

*I got this product in a Vegan Cuts box a few months back, picture courtesy of Target.com*

Lately, I have been obsessed with making aspects of my life more natural. I thought the most important place to start was with the medications I put into my body. I was on a lot of different mood stabilizing medications,  which in turn as caused really bad kidney problems. So, I did something that I was advised not to do, and cut them out. Instead replacing them with natural oils, essences, and habits. And I have never been so relaxed and content in my entire life. I have decided to explore and expand these changes with all of you- starting by reviewing a product I have been using for a while now and can’t function with out.

The Zoe Organic Refresh Oil is made with 100% organic ingredients. It is meant to ease queasiness. With anxiety, for me anyway, comes with extreme queasiness. This oil contains peppermint, lime, and ginger. The peppermint and ginger especially, are very refreshing and relaxing to me.

I put this on all of my pressure points every morning, any time I travel, at work, and whenever I start to feel a little anxious- a long with another oil for anxiety. My favorite way to use it is to put it under my nose and breath deeply. If I have makeup on, I’ll put it on my wrist and smell them, deeply. I apologize for that ridicules wording, I could not for the life of me think of a substitute word!

When I get through this roller I am 100% buying another!

I also think it is very important to mention this is a pregnancy safe product! I know that queasiness is a big part of pregnancy, at least it was for me. I would have loved to go back and use this instead of taking the medications I did. I honestly believe they played a huge part in my son being born two months early.

You can get it here, for $14!

I hope you enjoyed this little review! What are your favorite oils and essences? Comment below, especially for anxiety and depression. You can also find me on Instagram and Snapchat as manda_janette
