Beauty and magic are a harmonious match, they flow together eternally. Since its officially the start of November, it’s time to practice the art of self-care. With Halloween and Samhain out of the way, witches shouldn’t neglect their skincare and beauty routine. Especially during the cold and dry winter.
Your beauty and wellness routine should be a daily ritual. With the right potions, lotions and application methods, you can concoct a powerful DIY regimen for beautiful skin. We are here to break down the best wellness tricks hidden up our sleeves to make your skin look immortal.
1. Vanish Pores
Pores are THE enemy.
If you’ve struggled to keep your skin free from blackheads and oils, all it takes is Witch Hazel. Adding it into your routine will help clarify and detoxify the skin from all impurities. Add a few drops of Tea Tree Oil into a bottle of Witch hazel can also help protect and restore your skin, you’ll easily find these around your pantry.
Add to that this a sparkle of the toner infused with essential oils and organic herbs will balance and tighten pores to maintain skin’s clarity. Spritz Bewitched Face Toner on your skin to unclog pores to essentially reduce acne and prevent breakouts from happening.
2. Strong Strands
In our polluted world, where our hair suffers from damage, bring your hair back to life with a magical potion for tresses like Rapunzel.
If you’re hunting for the perfect product to protect your hair, an egg hair mask will keep your locks healthy and beautiful.
Yes! The best hair DIY trick is in the price of an egg (and a few drops of castor oil)
For an easy hair growth mask, mix 1 tsb of castor oil into a beaten egg. Apply it onto your scalp and ends and leave it on for 30 minutes for luscious locks.
Pay attention to your store-bought hair products ingredients which are stripping our hair of all the natural oils and proteins, instead, switch to the Witch I Love Your Hair Magic Mist to deeply nourish and grow your long healthy witchy hair!
Another way to save your lips is by using a vitamin-rich Honey Rose Lip Balm that contains geranium rose pure essential oil to provide an elegant aroma to soothe the senses!
4. Feel Good, Smell Good
There’s nothing more exhilarating than smooth and sumptuous soft skin. Raw shea butter or cocoa butter provide a silky blend of textures to hydrate the skin from winter dryness and rough calluses. Add a couple of lavender oil drops and massage all over your body before bedtime to unwind.
If you don't like the oily texture try to sooth the rough skin patches on your body with the Winter Witch Vegan Body Lotion with its blend of a sexy patchouli, frankincense, myrrh, sandalwood, vanilla, musk and rose.
5. Feed Your Skin
You can be a vegan and eat a healthy diet, but what we put on our skin is integral to our overall health and wellness. Decongesting your skin with a homemade organic face mask only requires 2 green ingredients… avocado and cucumber. Blend half an avocado with 1/4 cucumber and apply on the skin for 20 minutes. Both ingredients work to balance your skin to reduce acne and blackheads. It's super refreshing and it'll keep you cool as a cucumber...
Another easy mask to draw out impurities from the skin is the Moon Goddess Face Mask with its activated charcoal, bentonite clay and fuller's earth clay. The result? Your skin is rejuvenated and glows from within for days!
6. Luxurious Bath
When it comes to reinvigorating and nourishing your body, a soothing bath using organic natural ingredients will calm your senses. Making your own homemade coconut oil soap provides lots of conditioning without harsh chemicals. To create your soap at home, melt coconut oil with water and glycerin to make soap paste. Dead skin will be gone for good, keep in mind that a homemade soap needs to cure for 4-6 weeks.
Alternatively, using an Artisan Soap will intoxicate your senses to bring your skin back to life! Cleansing with clove, cinnamon, and orange essential oils treats your skin to an uplifting bath that will help your skin heal from toxins.
These are just a few ways to physically and emotionally heal from stressors and toxins to bring your senses back to a healthy state. Your skin and mood will be nurtured and protected.

It’s yet again the transformative, emotional, and highly energetic time of the year, where we welcome in the notorious Mercury retrograde. Despite the fact that Mercury retrograde is an occurrence that happens multiple times each year, it never seems to fail to stir up the same old feelings of needing to bunker down and lie low for a few weeks. This is because, unlike planetary retrogrades, Mercury’s reversed influence can make our lives do a complete 180-degree turn, which can cause some difficulties in our communication, career development, and relationships.
However, while Mercury retrograde tends to get a bad rep for its ability to completely change our lives, it can also be an excellent time to complete tasks, work on creative projects, as well as do some inner workings. With that said, today, we’re going to talk all about Mercury retrograde, what it is, and what you should and should not do during it.

As we transition out of the warm nights of August, we steadily begin making our way through the abundant month of September, welcoming with it the many transitional properties of the autumn season. However, September isn’t just a welcoming period for the autumn itself, but for the second of the three harvest festivals of the Wheel of the Year, known as Mabon. Mabon, also known as the autumn equinox, is the sabbat that marks the time of which day and night are equal, when we gather our crops once more and enjoy the last bit of warmth before the cooler months take over. On a deeper level, Mabon also has many powerful energetic transitions taking place, which can push us to seek change, deeper spiritual connections, and inner wisdom as we approach one of the most symbolic days of the year.
With so much going on energetically, it can be hard to know the best ways to celebrate the energy of the season and fully welcome it into your space. So to help you out, in this article, we're going to go over everything having to do with the divine autumnal sabbat of Mabon. From its history to its correspondences, traditions, and a few ways you can celebrate it today, let’s dive into everything you need to know about this powerful sabbat.

As we welcome in the cooling harvest month of September, we make way for a transformative period of energetic change as we work to create better balance in our lives. We kick off this autumn month in the sign of the practical and goal-oriented Virgo, shifting our focus towards progression on our goals. This will provide the signs with some initial direction and clarity, which will help us to start the month feeling positive and rejuvenated. However, Mercury, the planet of communication and knowledge, will also be lurking in the background this month as it prepares to go retrograde for the third and final time this year, pushing us to do some inner reflection as we begin to work through stirred emotions. This could also bring about mental fog, miscommunication, and misunderstandings with partners, coworkers, and loved ones, so be prepared for some potential rough patches throughout the month.
Towards the end of September, on the 23rd, we will then shift into the partnership-focused Zodiac sign of the Libra, which will turn our attention towards family, friends, and community as we continue to grow and strengthen relationships as well as our own independence. We will also reach the Autumn Equinox the day before this, on September 22nd, which is considered to be a truly divine time of balance, inner reflection, growth, and gratitude as we prepare for yet another change of season into a calmer, more stagnant time of the year. This is also the time of which the veil between our world and the spirit world is growing increasingly thin, upping our intuitive abilities and connection to the other side. For this reason, be prepared for some deeper spiritual movements to occur this day, as it is an incredibly significant time of year for magical workings.
