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.

As we prepare to say farewell to 2022, we welcome December, a month of change and renewal to send us off with flying colors into the new year. As the last month of the calendar year, December is likely to bring some closure to the events going on in our lives and present the signs with the opportunity to sit down, reflect, and plan out their future. As such, this is likely to give us a chance to get our life together more, slow down, and enjoy the moment with loved ones.
Aside from the general vibe of the month, December is likely to be quite an active month for the planets, with key influences coming from Mercury, Mars, and Jupiter. To start, we will kick off the month with Neptune going direct in Pisces in the first week of the month, stirring up a dreamy and imaginative aura that is likely to help us find better clarity in our lives. Mercury will then move into the sign of the Capricorn on the 6th of the month, boosting our communication and pushing us to speak more freely about the things on our minds. A few days later, Venus will move into Capricorn, which is likely to put a focus on our relationships for the next several weeks and help us find more stable ground within them. On the 20th, Jupiter will enter the Aries sign, encouraging expansion, new energy, and passion in our lives.
Then, on the 21st, we enter the season of the Capricorn, which is likely to push the signs to become more serious about the path ahead and work to start planning out their future better. This is also the same day that Yule begins, bringing with it a powerful period of restrospection, transformation, and rebirth. To end the month, Mercury retrograde will begin in Capricorn on the 29th, ushering us to reflect and slow down as we move into the new year with a steadier and calmer pace. And, with Mars retrograde still actively going on until January, this is likely to slow our energy even more so.
As you can see, December is likely to be full of many unique energies that are likely to inspire many changes within us as well. But, to give you a better idea of some energies that may be present around you this month, today, we're going to go over what energies and changes each Zodiac sign can expect throughout November and how you can adjust your life to make the most of them.
