Cool Off and Let the Goddess Ganga Guide You into the Autumnal Equinox

As summer winds down and fall approaches, we are reminded that another transitional time is on the horizon.

September is a wonderful month to reflect on all the warmth and cosmic power the summer months brought us. What were you thankful for this summer?

Feeling gratitude with each peaceful leaf that falls from the trees, our bodies and minds begin to sense the need to go inward, rest, and revitalize from all energy we expel during the summertime.

September’s next full moon, which will be on the 6th, is in the water sign of Pisces. We are now working toward the Autumnal Equinox and Harvest moon in the coming weeks. Which is why we felt this next Diosa was perfect to guide you into the grounding and cool harvest time — Ganga.

Ganga is a Hindu goddess, a personification of the sacred Ganges river in the holy land of India. Embodying coolness, cleansing, health, mercy, and purity, it is believed amongst Hindus that one drop of Ganga’s sacred waters could wipe away a lifetime of sins.

According to Hindu mythology, Ganga was a celestial creature that descended from heaven to earth bringing purity and spiritual divinity to the people.

In the spirit of Ganga’s purifying power, we hope this months products will kick start your cleansing and detox ritual. Each product was carefully selected for their purifying properties, making them a great addition to your skincare routine as the season changes and we move into cooler weather.

What did the past season’s heat bring up for you? Anything you want to let go of?

Honor the water element to bring about some of Ganga’s cleansing powers  over the next few weeks. Put out a jar of fresh water under the next full moons — which will be in Pisces on September 6th, and the one after that which is the Harvest Moon on October 5th — and let it charge with pure lunar energy.

Use this water in your homemade essential oil sprays, or in a ceremonial bath. This is also a great time to re-charge your crystals and clean your altars before we move deeper into the darkness and hibernation season.

May Ganga’s cool water element calm us as we let go and look forward to a new opportunity to karmically cleanse and nourish ourselves physically and mentally.

Blessing + Love,

Team Diosa

La Lueur Luxury Soy Candle – $23

candle-2

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.

lipbalm

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!

Party Detox from Herbal Zap – $15.99

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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.

Ingredients:

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

pb210706-select-honey

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!

toast

Recipe:

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!

JOY Wall Art & Card – $5.50

details_eh394_joyfulbrush_lo_squ

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!
