New Moon Rituals for Beginners

The past year I really started to pay more attention to the moon cycle. There is just something so mystical about the moon. I love New Years because to me it is a time for reflection and renewal. I always reflect back onto the previous year and see what I accomplished and see what really sucked!! I always try to be mindful and open to positive change for the New Year. This is so true of many people but unfortunately it can fade away as the days pass on. I think one of the wonderful aspects of becoming aware and in tune with the moon cycle is that every New Moon can be similar to the feeling of wanting and accepting positive change every New Years. The great thing is that the moon cycle is that it happens many times over the course of the year so there are so many opportunities available. I like to take the time out to create small rituals for every New Moon so that I can welcome the New Moon and feel really good about it. Plus the rituals keep me motivated and are fun!
Simple Ways to welcome in the New Moon:
*Smudging- This is a great way to enter in a new moon. This can be done by Palo Santo wood or a smudging stick. This will help clear negative energy and allow for positive changes to occur.
*Crystals- I love to surround myself with crystals all the time specially though when I am reflecting,mediating or practicing yoga,
*Essential Oils- Aromatherapy works wonders for me, You can diffuse oils or apply them topically(best with a carrier oil in a roller ball)
*Tea- You can even make your own loose leaf blends to customize your mood and goals.
*Moon Deck- I received a moon deck in a Mindfulness Subscription Box a while back and I love them. They include cards for all moon cycles and really help with reflection and planning rituals for the moon cycle.
*Bath Ritual- create a special bath blend with Epson salt and fresh herbs.flowers.  This will also have an added bonus of magnesium from the Epson salt.
*Candles- Find some candles that appeal to your senses and use them while mediating. I have a current obsession with crystal and herbal/floral topped candles!

So for me an example of something I do is take a bath with special bath salts mixed with herbs. This helps me focus and relax. I apply essential oils after with a diluted roller ball.  After I would use a smudging stick around the house.  I usually take a break after that. Then I usually journal and focus on reflection from my moon deck. I light candles and surround my self with crystals while doing this as well. This is also a great time to sip on some herbal tea as well. As you can see everyone can fine tune how they want to welcome the moon. It is really such a wonderful way to take time out for yourself and really tune into yourself.

I am going to go more in depth on each way in separate blog posts so stay tuned!

Monday Must Have with Elite Creed Natural Hibiscus Rose Soap

Today I am sharing about an amazing handmade soap I tried from Elite Creed Natural. I received a discount to try this soap in exchange for a review to share my thoughts. I wanted to try the Elite Creed Natural Hibiscus Rose soap because I love trying out handmade bath soaps and really love any beauty products with rose!
The soap came individually packaged and the soap is about 4 ounces.
The retail price is $6.
The ingredients are:
-Saponified Organic Coconut Oil
-Infused Hibiscus Oil
-Rose Essential Oil
-Hibiscus Flower
-Rose Flower

The soap lathers very nicely and provides a relaxing experience. My skin felt so soft after using the soap I really like how moisturizing the soap is. This soap is also supposed to help improve elasticity for your skin as well. That benefit sounds great to me! I really enjoy using this soap and love that it has natural ingredients I can read and feel good about using. The soap is also beautifully packaged and makes for a really nice gift as well. To purchase the Elite Creed Hibiscus Rose Soap and the other wonderful soaps Elite Creed has visit: https://elitecreed.com/product/hibiscus-rose-soap

My current skincare status is my skin never has enough hydration. Excellent hydration is one of the most important foundations to healthy skin. Neutrogena provided my with five free products from the Hydro Boost line to test out. Hydration is what I need so these products sounded like a perfect fit to try out. The Hydro Boost line is formulated with Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic Acid is the ingredient I always look for when I am looking for a product to moisturize and hydrate.
