Keep reading below and we’ll tell you exactly what they chose and why!
Here is our top list of must-have self-care items that the Spirit Nest’s buyers team can’t and won't live without!
The Sage Witch Face cream is a powerful anti-aging cream. It is luxurious, earthy, and completely all-natural. This was chosen quite a few times as a favorite due to the fact that it’s super hydrating. It is also noted as being wonderful and nourishing for sleep-deprived moms, students, and career women as it helps maintain your complexion looking youthful and radiant. The Sage Witch Face Creams is enriched with green tea, aloe vera, olive, and cucumber seed oils.
Do you have dry or curly hair that tends to frizz? We know all about that. That’s why we absolutely love Dead Sea Salt Hair Spray! This amazing hair mist is the perfect fix for dry hair. It kills frizz and provides vitality and bounce for dry, tired hair. Do you know those beautiful, soft curls people get after swimming in the ocean? Now you can get that same look at home by bringing the sea salt to you! Inside this bottle, you’ll find the perfect blend of salts as well as 100% pure aloe vera gel, rose-infused coconut oil, and ylang-ylang essential oil, all combined into a great refreshing scent.
We all have to deal with dry lips, especially during the wintertime. Even when it’s not windy, it’s important to keep our lips hydrated and nourished year-round. That’s why one of our favorite must-have products in the Mango Lassi Vegan Lip Balm! It’s a yummy lip balm that is easy and convenient to keep in your purse or around your workspace. Sweet mango blended with yogurt, cumin, and cardamom makes up this creamy moisturizing blend. It works so well you’ll only need to apply it once or twice a day! The best part about this lip balm is it doesn’t just layer a coat of oil over your lips as most commercial brands do. This mango lip balm actually penetrates down into your lips for deep, healing hydration.
When numerous staffers chose the Summer Witch Vegan Body Lotion as their favorite we heard two main things: it has an amazing dreamy, romantic, floral scent and it brought great relief to dry skin and hands. That dreamy scent they mention is a luxurious blend of patchouli, labdanum, citrus, anise, and tonka absolute. It’s also not surprising they found it to bring relief to dry skin. The ingredients in this body lotion were hand-chosen for their intense, non-greasy ability to penetrate the skin and provide long-lasting moisture. This all natural and vegan body lotion is formulated to be both lightweight and deeply hydrating.
The High Vibe Dream oil is a deeply relaxing, botanical oil infused with magical Mugwort. This oil was cited as being a nighttime favorite for its ability to help you relax, slow down your mind, and fall asleep. It provides a deeper, higher quality sleep. The High Vibe Dream Oil can also be used to help you achieved a deeper state of meditation; providing more relaxation and insight. It really is a wonderful item for self-care and is recommended to be used nightly.
Are you looking for a morning or afternoon pick-me-up that will help wake you and your face up? That is exactly what the Spa: Soothing Facial toner can do-It's the espresso of face care! The Spirit Nest’s buyers team loved this product for providing an uplifting and refreshing mist that is easy to use and a must-have to keep in reach during the day. Inside this magical bottle, you’ll find the soothing ingredients of aloe, lavender, and rose water to lift your spirits while calming irritated skin. While our favorite use for this toner is just a nice refreshing spritz on the face.
The Witches Brew Body Oil is new on the list of favorites among our staff.
It brings has a sexy scent while providing deep nourishment to the skin and relief to sore muscles. This oil is infused with crystals and contains notes of candied apples, cinnamon, toasted marshmallows, amber, and patchouli. One of our favorite uses for this is right after bath time! After you’ve dried off, apply some of this soothing oil over your skin for the ultimate hydration and nourishment.
If you’re looking to spoil yourself during your next full moon bath, look no further! The Full Moon Bath Bomb is crystal infused and Reiki charged to aid in harnessing the energy of the New and Full Moon. Not only does it smell divine, but it is also the perfect bath bomb for your full moon super spoiling bath ritual! While all of that is amazing on its own, this bath bomb is also wonderful for your skin. Made with dead sea salt, cocoa butter, and coconut oil, it is both nourishing and moisturizing for the skin and body.
Every time the Love By the Moon Surrounding Mist was mentioned by our staffers they all said the same thing: it is the perfect surrounding mist to reset and refresh the energy in your space. Inside you’ll find the invigorating and soothing scents of organic rose water, patchouli, jasmine, vanilla, and lavender. It also makes a wonderful pillow spray before bed to bring balance, rest, and sleep.
The crystal elixir is an aromatherapy balm that is embedded with Rose Quartz. This item was named as a must-have to use before meditation or anytime your Heart Chakra could use a boost. However, it holds a lot more magick than just that! This Rose Quartz Crystal Elixir can be used under the nose for its aromatic properties, on the wrists as perfume, and on the skin or hair to hydrate. It has many uses and benefits which is why it’s one of our must-haves for self-care we take with us everytwhere.
The Luna Vegan Perfume Oil blends midnight jasmine, musk and patchouli into a gorgeous floral scent with earthy green undertones. For some reason, this scent always reminds us of the 90s (the best decade ever). It’s smooth, clean, and sweet. Since it’s made with oil and not alcohol, it lasts much longer than traditional perfumes. It goes on silky smooth and won’t leave your skin feeling greasy or oily. Another great point brought up by our staff is Luna Vegan Perfume Oil’s ability to be completely portable. It is small enough to carry in your purse or keep next to you on your desk or nightstand.
Last on the list, but by no means least, is the Moonstone Crystal Candle. It offers an uplifting scent that also promoted creativity and healing. This candle is hand-poured with all-natural, American grown soy wax and is made with eco-cotton wicks and premium fragrance oils including rum, vanilla, and coconut. Best of all? There is a free hidden moonstone crystal inside! You’re sure to fall in love with this candle just as quickly as we have.

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.
