Unbox Your Inner Aphrodite!

February Diosa Theme Revealed!

Hi Diosas!

Who better to inspire our February theme than Aphrodite, the Roman goddess of love and beauty!? Not only is she the goddess of romantic love but she is the essence and the embodiment of Self-Love. It’s her adoration of identity that empowered her to do what and how she pleased.

Just as we aspire to do, Aphrodite lovingly appreciated her body with acceptance and joy. She lived in the now and relished in each moment. She was unapologetically herself.

This February, unbox your inner goddess-power of self-love with the Love and Beauty Diosa Box! We’ll deliver products that’ll make you shine so bright that your affection and joy will spread to those around you. Being yourself has never been more powerful.

Gratitude Diosa Box November 2016

Hello Diosas!

We hope you love the selection for you this month. Below you will find our recommendations, ingredients and instructions for items in November’s Gratitude Diosa Box.

We knew we wanted our debut theme to focus on “Gratitude” while embracing self love. November kicks off one of the most stressful times of the year so we wanted you to have something very special to look to when you need to unwind and take a few deep breaths. 

So let’s dig in!

Finding Gratitude Journal – $14.95

Writing is SO GOOD for the mind. It helps you visualize which leads to plans and then actions. You can also work through emotions or situations that you may not know how to process yet. By pairing that with the act of being grateful you have a winning combination. Google “benefits of gratitude” and you’ll get about 26.3 MILLION results.  That’s because science is fascinated with the correlation between gratitude and it’s positive effects on humans. Now, with the Finding Gratitude journal, you too can experience a ton of those benefits first hand!

Here are 5 ways to get the maximum benefit of your journal 

  • It’s highly recommend to start by keeping the journal and a pen bedside so that you’re ready to go when the time comes! Trading in the journal for the ritualistic cell phone scroll will help you sleep better at night or start the day off strong!

 

  • Commit to 5 minutes of writing, either first thing in the morning or right before bed adding time as you get more comfortable. Need to stick to a schedule in the morning? Set a timer so you can make it part of your daily routine. (We prefer morning writing because you simply can’t wake up on the wrong side of bed this way. It also gives you great momentum for your “to-do” list!)

 

  • Start small and keep it simple! Remember, this is for YOU and you only, so go easy on yourself.  It may be difficult when “life” moments make it challenging to find what you’re grateful for, but I promise there is always something!  It’s in these moments we really need to remember that too. So start with the basics. I’m grateful that I have a bed to sleep in! I’m grateful for my pillow!…I’m grateful for my toothbrush! No really… can you imagine?

 

  • If you ever get stuck just re-read your entries and see how they have evolved over time. You can be grateful for a lot of the same things all over again and re-appreciate them. Another great way to keep the momentum going is by listing your accomplishments. This will surely inspire you!

 

  • CONSISTENCY IS KEY!  If you really want to see change, like in anything else, you gotta stick to it! It takes 30 days for something to become a habit? If you miss a day or two, no biggie. Just try to get in a few things as often as you can. The benefits are endless!

kona

Kona Body Scrub – $18.99

A special blend of all natural ingredients will nourish and heal your skin by hydrating, softening, and alleviating the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks. The most important aspect of this scrub is it’s exfoliation process. In order to get the benefits of a moisturizer you must first clean the surface of your skin and remove dead skin cells that are literally creating a barrier between you and all the goodness your moisturizer has to offer.

TIP: Put the scrub contents in an airtight container or something that you can keep close by your shower. You want to get a lot of use out of this product without the paper packaging falling apart if left in the shower.

In case you have never used a body scrub, this is best to do in the shower. Start by rinsing your face and body with water so the scrub can stick to you. Focus on areas like your tummy, butt, thighs and any other areas that could use a little tightening up. With moist hands gently rub but don’t scrub, that’s what the coffee is for, avoid the eye area and rub in circular motions. Let it sit for 10-15 minutes and then rinse well with warm water. Be sure to get it all off, and just in case, use a dark towel to dry off. We are dealing with coffee so any residuals will show up on the towel. It should wash out but we wanted to prepare you and save you from the same mistake we made, just in case!

green-goddess

Green Goddess Face Mask – $18.95

French Green Clay, Spinach, and Alfalfa create a delicate mask that gently exfoliates while packing in TONS of anti-aging vitamins and minerals your skin will thank you for

This is a very light mask and only needs a little bit of liquid. Any ceramic disk works best to mix the mask together. If you have a mask brush use it to apply or a as always a clean finger will work! Be sure to test a small patch of skin before using with the apple cider vinegar. Our Sensitive Skin Diosa, Amanda, had no issues with adding Bragg’s apple cider, but everyone is different. If you have very sensitive skin, just use water to mix the mask and test an area before applying. We recommend the following mixture :

1 tsp of the mask

1/2 tsp of water

1/2 a tsp of Bragg’s apple cider vinegar

TIP: ACV is a GREAT additive for facial masks and helps to fluff the mask while reducing fine lines and wrinkles! We love this mask and think it’s a great addition to your routine once or twice a week.

nourish

Nourish Face Serum – $13.50

A perfect pick me up for dry, dull skin, made with a unique blend of “liquid gold.” Comprised of approximately 80% fatty acids as well as a high content of vitamin E, argan oil gives skin a natural boost while hydrating and softening. Apricot Kernel Oil, Rosehip Seed Oil, Geranium Essential Oil, Rose Essential Oil, Ylang Ylang Essential Oil 1/2 oz glass bottle with dropper

These high quality oils are sure to nourish your skin, leaving you touchably smooth and supple.

We suggest using this after your mask so your skin can fully absorb the amazing natural oils in this serum. Great for night and day use. After cleansing, pat dry and apply a few drops to you fingers and spread evenly across your face. Depending on your skin’s moisture levels you will need to adjust. For normal skin start with 4 then add another two in places that get really dry, like forehead and right below your cheeks, spots that are always dry in the winter. The best thing is that this absorbs and doesn’t leave you greasy. If you do feel greasy, after 15 minutes, you’ve put too much. Lightly blot and adjust on your next application.

pike-place

Pike Place Herbs – $6.00

We can’t guarantee that this will last all month, since we’re pretty sure you’re going to love this!

Every herb in this jar is hand raised, picked and processed into the amazing blend that we have loved and shared with many friends at dinner parties and brunches!  This works in pretty much anything that needs a flavor kick.

TIP: We love the purity of this herbal blend through the marriage of  extra virgin olive oil and served with warm, crispy, doughy bread.

We recommend using this delightful blend as a Thanksgiving dinner appetizer or you can take it out to your next dinner party with a french baguette. When you’re short on time, show up with this and you’ll leave your guests asking for the recipe.  

2 Tbsp Pike Place Herbs

5 Tbsp of extra virgin olive oil

Let sit for at least an hour then enjoy! 

If you need to serve immediately put oil and herbs in a saucepan and do a very light warming on the lowest flame you can for 5 minutes. Do not let the oil bubble or simmer!
