I gravitate towards different items each month. These are the items that I found myself reaching for a lot during the month of November.
I love supporting small shops and I love natural products. So when I got the chance to review some products from Daily Holistics, I was super excited.
Daily Holistics is owned and operated by Margareta Thorsen. She’s a certified reiki practitioner, yoga enthusiast, doTERRA wellness advocate and tarot card reader.
In her shop, Daily Holistics, she offers an assortment of natural skin and body products as well as custom essential oil blends. Her products are great and her prices reasonable.
I received three of her products to try out. A hand sanitizer, an energizing body spray and some lavender oatmeal soap.
The hand sanitizer comes in a 3 ounce plastic bottle. A really generous amount! It’s 100% alcohol free and is made with aloe Vera gel which adds extra cleansing benefits, almond oil for moisturizing, and essential oils for sanitizing.
I really liked this! It was my first time trying a natural sanitizer gel and I was pleased. It is a bit of a different consistency than standard hand sanitizer, but I’m not complaining. At first when you rub it into your hands it feels a bit gooey and almost slightly sticky. But it dries and absorbs very quickly and then you’re left with perfectly soft and sanitized hands.
Traditional hand sanitizers are really rough on our skin and aren’t really the healthiest. So this natural option is a big win for me! Also, a little bit goes a long way! So one bottle should last you awhile.
The second product I was able to try was the energizing body spray. It contains water, witch hazel, lavender and grapefruit essential oils and comes in a 4 ounce glass spray bottle.
I loved using this spray first thing in the morning to help me wake up, or at other times during the day when I needed a bit of a pick me up. I would spritz it above my head and towards my face a bit, breathing in the lovely scent. It smells freaking delicious.
You could also use this spray as a room deodorizer or even spritz it on your bed. I also had it in my car and sprayed the interior. Made for a very pleasant drive.
Last but not least is the lavender oatmeal soap. This smells so good! It’s made with goats milk, lavender essential oil, dried lavender flowers and oatmeal.
It’s super moisturizing and cleansing. And it lathers up like a dream!
This soap felt super special to me, so I’ve been using it for special occasions. I feel like I pick up a lot of energy with my hands, so before I do any magickal workings or meditate, I like to cleanse my hands. And this soap has been absolutely perfect for this!
The lavender in it is cleansing to my energy and it’s also calming. Getting me in the right mindset for spiritual or magickal work.
If you’re looking for some beautifully handmade and natural products, I highly suggest checking out and supporting Margareta with Daily Holistics.

Whether you’re someone who struggles with confidence or you’re someone who is a generally confident person, we all have times where we could use a boost of confidence.

Selenite is such an amazing crystal with lots of great benefits and qualities. Selenite is a form of gypsum and it’s named after the Greek Moon goddess, Selene.
Selenite can help balance and cleanse our entire energy body. A great way to do this is to take a selenite wand (like one pictured above) and simply scan your body with it. Hold the crystal several inches from your body while you sort of sweep the air around you. I personally like to envision a white light emanating from the selenite and strengthening my aura.
You can do the selenite aura cleanse each morning, anytime you’ve been in a large group of people or whenever you feel a bit drained, energetically.
Selenite is a very cleansing and high vibrational crystal and is one of the few crystals that never need to be cleansed. In fact, selenite can be used to cleanse other crystals! Simply place your crystals needing to be cleansed or charged, next to the selenite for a bit. You could also do the energetic aura cleanse with your crystals. Just swipe the selenite around the crystal you want to cleanse.
I like to keep a small piece of selenite near my card decks as well, to keep them nice and cleansed. Similar to cleansing your aura and crystals, you can use selenite to cleanse your tarot and oracle decks as well.
Selenite is a very soft stone, so be careful not to get it wet. But since you don’t have to cleanse this crystal, there’s really not much of a reason to get it wet in the first place.
Physically, selenite is excellent for headaches and migraines! Lay down and place a piece of selenite near the top of your head. You may even like to place a piece of amethyst on your third eye. Lay there quietly with your eyes closed for about ten minutes. I suggest placing a grounding stone near your feet as well, such as smoky quartz or black tourmaline. And don’t lay there longer than ten minutes. As I mentioned, selenite is very high vibe and laying with it at your crown Chakra for an extended period of time can cause that Chakra to open too widely and may cause some dizziness for you.
Another physical benefit of selenite is for sore muscles. Since it’s so good at breaking up blocked energy, it can help loosen muscles. If you’re feeling sore or tight, just run the selenite over the area or let it sit on that area for a bit.
Establishing a daily spiritual practice may seem like a daunting task to accomplish. I mean, we are busy as human beings. Jobs, family, responsibilities and more. But that’s all the more reason to start incorporating a daily spiritual practice into your life.
In Episode 2 of The Goddess Life Podcast we discuss the benefits of having a daily spiritual practice and why it’s important. We also talk about simple and easy things you can do for your spiritual practice. Spoiler alert! It doesn’t have to be time consuming or elaborate.
I’m going to get to New Orleans one way or another, sooner than later dammit. I just created this blend that will help me manifest myself to New Orleans!
Cypress is good for meditation to help you visualize what you desire. Cypress also grows in New Orleans with the beautiful moss hanging from it. Granted, the cypress this Oil is from isn’t the same genus as what grows in New Orleans, but still.
Myrrh 8 drops
Myrrh is a very spiritual Oil, and one of the reasons I want to go to New Orleans is for the spirituality and religion. Myrrh is also a great Oil for money and prosperity. Gotta have that cash flow to make it on my trip!
Cedarwood 3 drops
Cedarwood is helpful when creating sacred spaces, and New Orleans is definitely a sacred space. Also helpful with abundance.
I mixed these oils in a 10ml roller bottle topped off with fractionated coconut oil and also added in black obsidian and amethyst crystal chips.
Black obsidian to ground my dreams into reality and amethyst for spirituality and because it’s basically awesome in everything.
I also added in some dried Spanish moss. When I think of New Orleans I always envision the Spanish moss hanging from the trees.
I’ll be using this oil daily, especially during visualization. Whether it’s closing my eyes and meditating on being in New Orleans or while browsing the internet looking at New Orleans while envisioning and really feeling myself there.
You could use this technique for any trip you want to go! Simply mix in oils that resonate with the location for you!

From acne to dry skin to discoloration to aging and everything in between, our skin can really cause us some issues. Using a lot of store bought, chemical filled products only makes things worse. Even those products that claim to fix your problems are usually bad for you. Luckily, there are companies that make truly great skin care products. And even more luckily, you can make your own really easily by using essential oils!
In this prerecorded, Facebook Live video class I talk about various skin concerns, which oils are best to combat those issues and how to use them. I also walk you through creating your own primer water and makeup setting spray that can be tailored to your specific skin needs!
In the video I mention carrier oils. Savory Lotus has an excellent post about various carrier oils and their skin benefits.
Here is a handy reference to figure out which oils are best for your skin type…
