Happy Holidays, Diosas!

Another new month, another new way to love and pamper yourself!  This month we have paired SIX all natural and organic FULL SIZE items to help you enjoy, relax and recover this month! Our theme this month was inspired by LAETITIA – The Roman Goddess of joy, gaiety, and celebration, and is especially linked with holidays and festivals, which is why we chose her!  

Below is a little more about the items we chose for you this month. We hope you love it as much as we do! Let us know what you think in the comments below!

La Lueur Luxury Soy Candle – $23


This hand poured soy candle lets you celebrate the magic of Christmas all year round!  This scent is called Blue Spruce and it is perfectly light and fresh with top notes of pine needles, spearmint, evergreen, and spruce. Middle notes of cinnamon, cypress, lemon, and base notes of moss, musk, sandalwood, and cedarwood. What is great is that the scent is not overpowering. 

We loved burning this candle while soaking in a hot bath with Moon Body Soul’s Moon Dust! These candles are pure soy and free of harmful chemicals so can burn these candles without the worry of breathing in anything gross or toxic!

Tip: Be sure to trim the char off the wick when you relight the candle. Glass can get hot so be sure to use protection when moving the candle while it’s hot.

Moon Dust by Moon Body Soul – $9


A completely natural meditative bath soak. This fizzy bath soak promotes relaxation & detoxification.  Unlike other bath soaks, Moon Dust is made with only the best stuff Mother Nature has to offer with no fillers, dyes or synthetic fragrances! Use this soak to calm your nerves, detoxify your skin and magically release the tension in your body & mind. Perfect after a night of dancing to soothe those achy feet. You will be floating on air after a soak with Moon Dust. 

Ingredients and benefits:

  • The sodium bicarbonate is made from natural deposits and is extracted by a simple water process that uses no chemicals.
  • The Citric Acid is 100% pure & natural with no use of GMOs.
  • Organic Coconut Oil and  100% Vitamin E Oil is added for super hydrating power. 
  • The added healing power of Magnesium Sulfate will soothe your muscles.
  • A signature “Moon Scent” is infused with 100% Vanilla Absolute Essential Oil & 100% Lavender Essential Oil for a calming and meditative bath experience.
  • Topped off with culinary grade dried Rosebuds & Petals for an exceptionally exotic bathing experience. Let them float in the water or use them to gently exfoliate your skin.

Fig & Honey Lip Balm by Farmstead Apothecary – $5.99


Chapped lips don’t stand a chance against this soothing and hydrating lip balm. Formulated with the purest blend of organic shea butter and coconut oil for a smooth and silky balm that your lips can easily absorb. Tastes like sweet honey and figs picked fresh from the farm!

Since this arrived on our doorstep it has not left our sides! We love this giant lip balm! It truly has saved my dry and flaky lips. Every winter it seems like the little kid with a red ring around her mouth wants to reappear. Not this winter!

In addition to being all natural, this balm is packaged in 100% biodegradable paper tubes, for the nature lover in all of us. Hooray for Sustainability!

Party Detox from Herbal Zap – $15.99


The Party Detox herbal blend is for those times when we overindulge in one way or another. Yes, it is great for the morning after a bit of boozy night, but it is also great for when you have overdone it with food, lack of sleep or whatever your party time included.  Overall, this is a GREAT item to have in stock around the house.

This stuff truly works! When the day came that we needed to test it out we agreed that after drinking the mix the hangover feeling starts to fade away. The herbs start to do their job almost immediately and depending on how much you’re hurting, you can usually restore your balance in 1-2 doses a day. (We don’t claim you can drink everything and be fine the next day, standard adult life rules still apply!)

There is a bit of a kick to these packs, hence the “ZAP” in the Herbal Zap name, but you easily get use to it and the bite means it’s working, right?! However, if the zap is too strong you can always water it down as needed and it’s still as effective. The flavor profile is close to a slightly sweetened ginger tea.

This box contains 10 packets and each packet of Party Detox uses the power of herbs to soothe your stomach and detox your whole system.


Ginger supports digestion and detoxification. Amala and Black pepper are nourishing and detoxifying.  Turmeric is one of nature’s best antioxidants. Coriander is soothing support for the whole body. Key lime which is bound to a small amount of cane sugar are the carriers for the herbal extracts. Nothing else!

Bee Joy from Hallelujah Honey – $6


Hallelujah Honey is owned and operated by Christopher Carlberg and a small team, including his wife, who have made it their life’s mission to save the honey bees!  Hallelujah Honey has teamed up with local organizations and civilians to get petitions enacted to protect honey bees, which we depend on to pollinate crops for food production.  

The mission of Hallelujah Honey is to rescue bees all over southern California and integrate them into new, permanent bee homes. Christopher goes out on bee rescue missions to remove bee hives from people’s homes so they are not exterminated. We were told that he is sometimes called the bee whisperer by local farmers and is so tuned in to his honey bees that he can tell when the queen is present and the overall health of the swarm. AMAZING right!?  When we heard the story behind Hallelujah Honey, and the love that really goes into each jar, we knew we had to help promote their livelihood and that of their wonderful honey bees. They say that happy bees make the best honey and you are sure to taste the difference in this jar of orange blossom Bee Joy honey from Hallelujah Honey!

This specific honey is a perfect addition to teas, holiday desserts, or drizzled over some banana and toast! The perfect breakfast when you’re short on time!



1 piece of whole grain toast

½ a banana sliced

1 Tbs of peanut butter

½ tspn of honey

Pop your bread in the toaster. While you wait, slice the banana into rounds. Once the toast is ready, spread the peanut butter over the toast and top with the banana rounds, spreading them evenly.  Finally, drizzle with honey in a zigzag motion and enjoy!

Check these out!

You can find 15 “Buzzworthy” honey recipes here, courtesy of Southern Living. We are huge fans of pancetta and goat cheese, so the Pancetta Crisps With Goat Cheese and Pear gets our vote! YUM!


And if you’re a fan of bourbon, try this recipe at your next holiday party! Simply, amazing! 

JOY Wall Art & Card – $5.50


This card obviously jumped up at us when we were putting this box together. We will have to update this picture to the framed wall art version so you can see how cute it looks and what our original idea is for this!  During the holidays it is easy to get stressed out or worry about how things “need” to happen.  Just remember to find ways to have fun! Focus on the positive and just go with the flow so you can enjoy more and stress less!

Happy Merry Christmas, from our family to yours!

Love, Team Diosa!

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 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 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 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 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!
