Celestial Diosa Box Delivers Tools and Techniques For Times of Stress

Hi Diosas!

How is the first part of August going for you all!? We are right in the pre-shadow phase of our next Mercury Retrograde. Yep, it’s back.
The Celestial Shadow Diosa Box is here to deliver powerful Earth-based ingredients that will help keep you grounded and centered during times of stress. These self care tools give you remedies that are safe, effective, and truly within reach – because sometimes a hot bath and a glass of wine are just not as convenient as a modern goddess would hope for.

LUNA Healing Crystal Oil – Balanced Roots – $12

10% off your next Balanced Roots product purchase with coupon code: SAVE10 

I am so thrilled to introduce Balanced Roots, created and hand crafted by Lauren Venable. Lauren has so many gifts to share with the world and we are lucky to get our hands on a very special healing blend that she has masterfully crafted exclusively for Diosa Box!

She understands the cosmic energy that is filling our space this month. So together, we were able to create an oil blend that serves as a solution to that cosmic energy. She had also previously posted an August Energy Reading stating that “August is going to be a
POTENT month” so if you have 5 minutes to spare and some clarity to gain, definitely check it out.

The LUNA Blend is all about awakening your own Inner Goddess so you can show up for life feeling more whole, balanced, & powerful.

Inside each roller you will find Moonstone, which fosters a connection to the Divine Feminine – a beautiful source of power and creativity. The addition of Black Agate promotes a sense of balance as it grounds & settles your energy. Throw in a carefully crafted blend of therapeutic grade essential oils to enliven your senses, enhance your focus, and lift your spirit. LUNA is sure to be your best friend this month!

Use this Crystal Oil when you’re feeling defeated, lost, or overwhelmed and let the Goddess guide you.

As mentioned in our previous blog post, the energy in August is going to be pretty intense. Have you started feeling it yet? I sure have! This is not a shameless plug here, this stuff really works!

In the last year, miraculously, none of our products have arrived damaged. But this time, some rollers arrived broken, which is always a risk. But why now? My day job was ramping up, my birthday was on a Monday, I had out-of-town visitors with more coming, AND I was trying to get my to-do list done before leaving for a much-needed vacation. So of course that’s when it finally happened, throwing my entire schedule off balance at the worse possible time. If anyone needed anxiety relief and help with focusing, it was me.

Upon opening the damaged batch of oils, I was doing my best to it clean up and I applied some oil on neck and on my wrists to avoid wasting it completely. Normally, I would have met this situation with plenty of concern and a dash of panic, but not this time. I was able to approach the situation calmly,  clearly think of a solution, and accepted that what will be, will be.

After what felt like a very Zen conversation with Lauren, she sprung into action and whipped up a new batch of oils and sent them overnight. Sometimes things happen at the worst time and we overreact or worse, we SNAP! Under these circumstances, this was a smooth process and I have Lauren and her magical oil blending skills to be thankful for.

Moon Time Ease Oil by Herbal Chest – $11.50

This Moon Time Ease Oil is made to help ease cramping, soreness, and pain from the menstrual cycle. It’s handmade in small batches and these carefully combined herbs form an oil that includes Ginger, Cramp Bark, and Mugwort since these warming, going,  antispasmodics  herbs are especially beneficial for this time of the month.

It’s common to experience pain around the lower abdomen, during your cycle, but it’s also common around the lower back. I occasionally have pain in my legs as well. Fortunately, I was able to put this oil to the test at just the right time and I will say the oil
has a great consistency for massaging smoothly and easily. Not only did it relieve the pain in my sides, but also in my tight and achy calves!

Directions :

Pour the Moon Time Ease Oil in your hand, gently massage into your abdominal area until well absorbed, and cover with warmth afterward. Apply two to four times a day or as needed.

Take a look at these healing ingredients :

  • Ginger(Zingiber officinale)
  • Cramp Bark (Viburnum opulus) – named for it’s ability to help with “cramps”
  • Mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris)
  • Olive Oil
  • Vitamin E Sweet Marjoram Essential Oil
  • Rosemary Essential Oil
  • Chamomile Essential Oil
  • Ginger Essential Oil
  • Vitamin E Oil

The consistency is thick, so it will feel a little sticky. Cover with a warm towel to get the maximum benefits. It’s gentle enough to use on all skin types, and for sore muscle cramping that may not be associated with period cramping. Adverse reaction is not expected, but we always recommended that you do a patch test before using since everyone’s skin is different.

Lavender Marshmallow Cleansing Oil by Mother Mountain Herbs – $17

Use code word DIOSA to get 10% OFF your first order with Mother Mountain Herbs

Celebrate your face with the nourishing power of medicinal herbs and oil. Organic cold pessed sunflower oil comes together with soothing, skin-loving flowers and roots to make an all purpose cleanser that your skin will thank you for. Specifically crafted for all
skin types in order to maintain health, vitality, and glow. Sunflower oil is non-comodogenic and will not clog pores. Suitable for use with the Hot Cloth or Oil Cleansing Method.

Have you tried the oil cleansing/hot cloth method yet? If not, you’re about to fall in LOVE. Check out what acne.com has to say about oil cleansing:

“Oil dissolves oil. One of the most basic principals of chemistry is that “like dissolves like.” The best way to dissolve a non-polar solvent like sebum/oil, is by using another non-polar solvent similar in composition: Other oils. By using the right oils, you can cleanse your pores of dirt and bacteria naturally, gently and effectively, while replacing the dirty oil with beneficial ones extracted from natural botanicals, vegetables, and fruits that heal, protect and nourish your skin. When done properly and consistently, the OCM can clear the skin from issues like oily skin, dry skin, sensitive skin, blackheads, whiteheads and other problems caused by mild to moderate acne–while leaving your skin healthy, balanced and properly moisturized.”


  1. Pour a quarter sized puddle of oil into the palm of your hand.
  2. Gently massage oil onto your face, including the eye area to dissolve eye makeup.
  3. Run a wash cloth under hot water and ring it out.
  4. Place hot cloth (not so hot that it burns your skin) over your face and let it sit for 30 seconds to a minute. This allows the pores to open and impurities to be removed.
  5. Gently wipe your face clean with the hot cloth.
  6. Follow up with your favorite toner and moisturize.
  7. Done! It’s that easy. A 5 minute self care ritual that will leave you feeling like you just walked out of a mini-facial. So refreshed and clean!

Ingredients include:

  • Organic cold-pressed sunflower oil
  • Organic marshmallow root
  • Home-grown calendula flowers
  • Organic lavender flowers
  • Lavender EO
  • Clary Sage EO

Calming Kit by Doug For It – $13

Chances are if you go to work, go to school, or just live in this country you deal with some form of stress or anxiety.  Anxiety is the most common form of mental disorders in the US. According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA), “40 million Americans over the age of 18 are affected by anxiety — roughly 18 percent of the nation’s population. Of those 40 million people, almost 7 million of them suffer from GAD, with 15 million suffering from social anxiety disorder, 14.8 million suffering from major depressive disorder, and 7.7 million affected by post-traumatic stress disorder.” If you’re like me, just reading that sentence gave you anxiety!

Anxiety can be very real for some people, so it was a goal of mine to find something that could help alleviate the need to physically exert that fidgety energy that comes with anxiety. It was also important to find tools that help build healthy habits to easily practice any time or anywhere – which is usually when anxiety tends to hit.

This energy calming kit is easily portable and the perfect size to have with you on the go or at your desk so it’s there when you need it. Slowing down and breathing can be the key to conquering fear and anxiety as well as dealing with stress, anger, or emotional issues.

Breath combined with positive self talk can be the anchor that helps keep you grounded, or gets you into the state of mind that you want to be in.

Each kit comes with :

  • 1 set of mini-affirmation cards
  • 1 set of breathing exercise cards
  • 2 oz. jar of non-toxic dough infused with pure essential oils
Affirmation + Breathing Cards

If you don’t have a morning self care ritual yet, this may be a great way to start. It’s super easy and takes very little time. If you do, awesome!

You’ll want to keep the affirmation cards somewhere you will see them. Shuffle the cards, take a deep breath, and pick one card. Read it out loud and remember it throughout the day. Even if you think it doesn’t relate to you at that moment, it may serve you later in the day in an unexpected situation.

Included in the kit are a pack of simple and straight forward little cards that make practicing your breathing super easy and fun. These are great to keep in your wallet or by your desk in case you need a mid-day reinforcement to keep calm. Take some time in the morning to practice a few and feel the difference it makes filling your body with nutrient rich oxygen.

Lion’s Roar Breath : 

In honor of this Leo month, try this exercise and tame the beast!

“This may be an exercise you want to do at home or somewhere in private. With this breath you want to inhale a nice long inhale through the nose. Then for the exhale, open your mouth wide, stretch your jaw and face and roar out your exhale.  If appropriate, do an actual roar. Repeat several times. ”

These are quite fun to try and definitely help keep you focused on something positive when you are focusing your mental energy or emotions on something that does not serve you.

Stress Relief Doug : 

Take a deep breath. Squeeze, pull, and twist the dough in your hands when you are feeling anxious or frustrated. The essential oils in the dough will release and help calm nerves. Each dough ball acts and feels like a stress ball, but without any of the toxins found in putty. It also smells better because it comes infused with Lavender and Chamomile essential oils. Ahhh…

Here are a few tips to keep your stress dough at it’s best:

It will dry out if you leave it in the open, so store it in a sealed container. If it does feel dry, add a drop of water and work it into the dough to revive it.

If you see salt crystals on the edges, put it in the microwave for about 3-5 seconds then work the dough, the crystals will reabsorb into the dough.

A note about microwaving:  This can revive and soften your dough if done for just a few seconds, but if over done it will ruin the dough. First it will melt, then it will harden like a rock. So microwave with care, in a microwaveable container, not in the metal tin!

Winter tips: If it has been stored somewhere cold (below 70 degrees), the coconut oil in it will harden up a little. As the dough warms up in your hands it will begin to become soft again or you can warm it in the microwave for about 5 seconds (don’t do more than 7 at once), it will soften up immediately and feel silky smooth.The hardening when cold is just a property of coconut oil and it doesn’t adversely affect the dough in any way.

Keep out of direct sunlight and away from heat sources.

Store the unused dough in the fridge to keep it fresh longer.

Summer tips: If the dough feels melty or just too soft, that’s just the coconut oil. Put it in the fridge for just a bit and it will stiffen right up.

If you notice a little residue on your hands after you use the dough for more than a few minutes, don’t panic, it’s just the essential oil and carrier oil, you can just wipe it off or rinse it and you will notice that your hands smell great and feel soft!

Vitamin B12 Energy Booster by MdSiy – $24.99

Help combat fatigue and boost your metabolism with these easy to swallow water soluble vitamins. These liquid drops are sublingual, meaning they are meant to be put under your tongue and absorbed through the mucous membrane that lines your mouth. The amount of B-12 your body needs daily is only between 2.4 and 2.8 micro grams, but its poor absorption through the stomach means you need to take more if by supplementing.
To use, just put 10 drops under your tongue and hold them for 30 seconds before swallowing to quickly absorb into your system.
to support adrenal function and maintain a healthy nervous system.

Look at all the ways B12 can help improve your state of mind and well being:

IMPROVE MEMORY AND CONCENTRATION – B12 improves clarity of thought because of the way it acts on the nervous system. In particular, maintaining healthy vitamin B12 levels helps prevent age-associated cognitive decline.

INCREASE ENERGY – Because of its role in fatty acid metabolism, vitamin B12 provides an energy boost to the body.

BLOOD CELLS – B-12 is needed to make red blood cells, produce energy, synthesize DNA during cell division and to maintain normal cognitive function.

PREVENTION OF PERNICIOUS ANEMIA – Vitamin B12 is essential in the process of making red blood cells. Supplementing this nutrient can help prevent certain kinds of anemia.

VEGAN FRIENDLY – Great for vegetarians & vegans

May the moon’s magic bring you powerful energy this month!

Diosa Box Honors the Queen of May this Mother’s Day

On the eve of May Day, the ancient celebration of Spring across the Northern hemisphere, today seemed like the perfect time to share this with you all.

All things seem possible in May. We are noticing the brighter mornings with melodies being sung from our visiting feathered friends and Mother Nature is bursting with flora.

The evenings are warmer with cool breezes and we still have over a month to breath in spring air while dreaming of summer days to come.

Everything feels healthier, warmer, and more colorful. We are literally growing into a state of abundance!
To celebrate this time of esteem and vivacity we look to the Welsh Goddess of Flowers and Love. Creiddylad (cree-THIL-ahd) is the eternal Queen of May, who is forever constant and always seeking peace and stability.
Photo Source: Spring/Summer 2014 Cameo The Label Lookbook

Creiddylad is a fruitful Celtic fairy promising love, a golden glowing sun-flowing and giving of life sort of love. And she, like the month of May, reminds us of the necessity of self-love and balance, and how endurance through tougher times rewards us with growth and abundance. In nature and in life.

To compliment your liveliness as you venture forth as a Mother Queen of May flowers we have selected a bouquet of floral inspired products, with 100% natural ingredients.

Some have the power of healing through live botanicals. Others linger with hypnotic aromas like jasmine, and rose, with its everlasting magical fountain of youth. Additionally, you can expect the therapeutic properties of lavender to help you calmly conclude your day.

What do you think about this theme this month?  We’d love to hear from you, so let us know what you think and who you’d like to see honored as our next mighty Diosa.

Did you know May’s full moon is also called the “Flower Full Moon” or as some Native American tribes call it, the “Mother Moon”? How beautifully magical  is that? 

Love and Light,
The Diosa Box Team

Today is the last day to pre-order this curate selection. Click the image to pre-order the Flowers and Love Diosa Box for the special goddess in your life. 


New Moon Diosa Box is here and we have some AMAZING tools for you to get your new year started off RIGHT! 

Money Magic Manifestation & Affirmation Cards - MSRP $19.00
Money Magic Manifestation & Affirmation Cards – MSRP $19.00

We are thrilled to have partnered up with Ethony, headmistress of The Tarot Readers Academy, to bring you her custom made Money Magic Manifestation cards! 

Ethony is a Reiki Practitioner, Aura-Soma Consultant, award winning Photographer, Artist, Eco Faerie, Gamer and all-round Goddess. She has been working and learning the world of Tarot for most of her life and has made a it her profession to work with clients and aid them in finding clarity, illumination and personal epiphanies. I invite you to check out her IG page, @ethony, which is phenomenal and peruse her website at http://ethony.com/ for a wealth of knowledge on tarot, oracle readings and many other free resources to help you connect with your higher self. 

“Magic is everywhere and our lives can be truly enchanted if we are open and awakened” – Ethony

If you have never used manifestation cards, it’s one of the easiest things you can implement into your daily life. It’s as easy as “pick a card, any card.” Literally.

  • Keep the deck in a place where you will see it often, maybe on your desk at work, your personal meditation altar, or on top of your dresser or night stand.
  • Clear you mind, take a deep breath and pick one card from the deck and read it out loud.
  • Then carry the card with you or keep it somewhere you will see it throughout the day.  Try keeping it in your wallet, on the fridge, or by your computer monitor. You want to make the card your daily mantra so that these words will become so familiar to you they eventually become real. 

2017 can be a time for clearing out your old thought patterns and negative self talk, be it about money or yourself. The numerology for 2017= 1 (2+0+1+7= 10; 1+0= 1) and 1 is the beginning, the start of everything. If you are not actively changing your self talk, you may have a thought process or inner dialogue that sounds something like, “I don’t have money!”, “there isn’t enough for that” or “I can’t afford that!”

Money comes and goes but your attitudes about money determines everything. There have been countless books written about the psychology of money and our relationship with it. A lot of money issues stem from us just not thinking we are worthy of it. For example, “money is the root of all evil”, or “people with money are greedy and selfish!” All of this is nonsense! People who are good and noble deserve money too, we all do. You deserve money and abundance in all shapes and sizes! We truly believe these cards will get you into thinking positively about your relationship with money and yourself.  

“It’s more important to grow your income than cut your expenses. It’s more important to grow your spirit that cut your dreams”

– Robert Kiyosaki, Author of Rich Dad Poor Dad

Money Magic Manifestation & Affirmation Cards
There are 48 Money Magic Manifestation affirmation and statement cards in this deck. Deck dimensions are 4.5cm x 9cm – Perfect for your Altar, pocket or around the house. All decks are charged under the full moon with the intention of aiding money magic for their new owners.

With practice and a daily card your positivity will lead you to the path of spiritual and financial abundance. You will go from “I can’t afford that” to “how can I afford that?” and the latter puts you into action mode. There is a solution at the end of that question. The former is just a statement about what simply is and that’s pretty much the end of it. Make yourself a promise that you will believe in the solutions this year! Start by picking one card, any card. . .

Masa Olive Oil Face Cleanser- MSRP $8.00

We also snagged up another favorite item from F&M called Masa & Olive Face Paste! This is like nothing we’ve ever seen before, and in the spirit of a new year full of awesome new things we felt it was only fitting.  This cleanser gently exfoliates while being super hydrating!  That’s because its key ingredients are organic masa, aka corn flour, known for it’s grainy texture, which acts as a gentle polisher and stimulator. These gentle scrubbers are delivered via organic olive oil that dilutes and dissolves the pre-existing oils on your skin allowing the pore clogging dirt and bacteria to surface and be cleaned away. You’ll never have soap-stripped dry skin after cleansing again! This scrub will work with all skin types.

Directions :

To use, take a small knife or toothpick to stir before use. These are all natural ingredients with no preservatives or thickening agents! Think of the way all natural peanut butter separates.  Stir to blend and get a nice balance of all the goodness this gem has to offer!  Once smooth, take about a half a’ teaspoon of the scrub and rub in between your fingertips, spread, and massage into your face. If you are in the shower, apply the scrub and leave on to let the steam open your pores. Then rinse off with water and towel pat your face dry when you’re done.

Your face will be SO silky smooth and hydrated you will need less moisturizer and that is great on your wallet, right? This is perfect for those of you who are still fighting the winter chill.  Let us know what you think in the comments below!

Palo santo holy wood
Eco-Friendly Palo Santo Holy Wood - Retail $4
Eco-Friendly Palo Santo Holy Wood – Retail $4

To top it off we’ve included some Palo Santo, also known as “Holy Wood”, a sacred wood that comes from the Palo Santo trees of South America. It is similar to Frankincense, Myrrh, and Copal resin incense. Each eco-friendly incense stick is harvested from naturally fallen branches from Peruvian Palo Santo trees. These branches lay dormant for up to 10 years before harvesting. During that time they develop a natural resin which is what makes the smoke so fragrant. 

Directions :

Burn the end and let is smoke for a few seconds and then blow out the flame. You should see the red amber glow.  Set it down on a safe glass, ceramic or metal holder and allow the sage-scented smoke to energize your space. It will only smoke for a minute or so, relight as necessary. To make it smoke continuously, place over a small coal, cone incense or keep a lit candle near by.

When burned, the smoke is believed to have medicinal, cleansing and therapeutic healing power. Burn while meditating, manifesting or cleaning your home and let this sacred sage-scented smoke clear away negative energy and energize your space in 2017!
