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?

Kicking off a new month, we welcome hot summer nights, new beginnings, and self-care into our space as we all learn the importance of slowing down and grounding to our current environment. Entering the month of July, we are led by the sign of the emotional and intuitive Cancer, encouraging all signs to slow down and live more in the moment. This could have us turning more to our roots and becoming more in touch with our intuition and our emotions, helping us to build a more grounded foundation within ourselves mentally and spiritually.
In terms of planets, this month, we have the influence of many different planetary changes going on this month. This includes Venus, Jupiter, and Chiron as some of the main events. With that said, Venus will enter Cancer mid-month, highlighting a nurturing, compassionate, and gentle approach to love. This could also bring changes to the way we connect with and communicate with those we love, as well as invoke a deeper, more caring approach to our self-care routine. Following this, Chiron will turn retrograde on the 19th of the month, pushing the signs to turn within for wisdom and introspective for the next several months. We will then enter the Leo season on July 22nd, helping us to channel some fiery new confidence that invokes creativity, hard work, and a shift in focus towards creating the life we want. And finally, Jupiter will also go retrograde on July 28th in the sign of the Aries, pushing the signs to deeply examine and evaluate their life and their path to better navigate where they want and need to be.
As you can see, July is likely to be full of many unique energies that are likely to inspire many changes within ourselves as well. But, to give you some deeper insight into what you can expect this month, today, we're going to touch on what energies and changes each Zodiac sign can expect throughout July and how you can adjust your life this month to make the most of it.

As we move through June, we soar into new beginnings as the hot nights of summer take over and guide us to a season of fun, laughter, and adventure. Often referred to as the season of new hope, summer is a rich time of year full of optimism and new beginnings. It is a time when we channel more energy towards our personal endeavors, spend time with those closest to us, and make plenty of new unforgettable memories. Not to mention, it is also a time of personal empowerment as we embrace more of the fiery light within ourselves and allow it to shine freely with the guidance of the sun and the Solstice.
Because of this, doing what we can to welcome in and honor this energy is essential to truly make the most of it and can help to enhance our spells and rituals at this time. And what better way to do that than by setting up a summer altar? So in this blog, we wanted to share a few of our favorite ways to decorate your altar to welcome in and celebrate the summer season, as well as a few product recommendations that align with the energy of this time of the year as well. So, without further ado, here’s our personal guide to setting up a summer altar to make the most of this beautiful season.

Summer is finally here, and it’s time to get out, let loose, and get crafting on all your summer spells and rituals. With new opportunities beaming around us and a new burning flame of passion within us, this is the perfect time to align more with confidence and motivation as we pick up the pace in our lives and become more fearless in our approach to our goals and dreams. And one of our favorite ways to do that is by making sun water.
Energetically, the sun is known as the divine master healer of the cosmos and the creator of solar energy. It is the cosmic force that gives health and life to all, and without it, we and all life of our world would cease to exist. For that reason, the energy of the sun is incredibly powerful to work with in our practices and can help us to channel health, vitality, and healing within ourselves. Not to mention, it can also help us to see more of the light in the surrounding world as well as within ourselves. For that reason, sun water is a popular thing to make in the summer to absorb some of this radiant energy to truly make the most of the solstice and the season. For that reason, today, we’re going to direct our focus to sun water, its benefits, and a simple step-by-step guide for how you can make it for your summer practices. Let’s get started.
