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?

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.
