Moon Magic Subscription Box – August 2015 Review and Giveaway
I will be honest and admit I know almost nothing about Chakras and stones. If I am being completely honest I will also tell you that I am not 100% sure that stones work – but I am open-minded enough to learn.
The first thing I wanted to know was what are the chakras, what area of the body it uses and it;s effect. A Chakra is an energy point or mode in the subtle body (which is your mind, intelligence and ego) not the physical body. There are 7 Chakra points and each has its own objective. The 1st Chakra is the Root Chakra which is at the base of the spine (tailbone area specifically) and it represents our foundation and the feeling of being grounded. The 2nd is the Sacral Chakra is located in the lower abdomen (about 2 inches below the navel) and represents connection and ability to accept others and new experiences. The 3rd is the Solar Plexus located in the upper abdomen in the stomach and represents the ability to be confident and in control of our own lives. The 4th is the Heart Chakra located in the center of the chest above the heart and represents our ability to love. The 5th Chakra is the Throat located in the throat and represents ones ability to communicate. The 6th Chakra is the 3rd eye which is located in the forehead between the eyes and represents the ability to not only see but also focus on the big picture. The 7th and final Chakra is the Crown located on the top of the head and is the highest chakra and represents ones ability to be fully connected spiritually.
Once I read about the Chakras the contents of the box began to come together. I received the August 2015 Moon Magic Box and had no idea what to expect so I was excited to delve in the box, and read about each product, including:
- Blue Obsidian – This is a blue and clear stone that aids in astral travel and enhances telepathy. This stone also assists you in self esteem and self-respect.
- Onyx – This is a pure black stone that can assist you in life challenges specifically those cause by a drain of energy. This also can assist in protecting your personal energy.
- Rainforest Jasper – This is a green and brown marbled stone that can assist in deepening your connection to the earth and nature spirits. This is also good for detoxification.
- Blue Calcite – This is a light blue that is assists in speeding up development and growth.
- Aventurine – This dark green can assist in protecting against environmental pollution and can assist in diffusing negative situation and can turn it around.
- Orange Calcite – This orange rough stone can assist in cleansing. This is a highly energized stone especially when placed on the lower chakras. This can assist in dissolving problems and maximizing your potential.
- Apatite – This teal and white stone that could be marbled is an inspirational stone in that it assists in promoting humanitarian, as well as stimulating creativity and intellect.
Happiness Mist: This is made with 100% therapeutic grade essential oils which is a light citrus mist. Spray this on yourself or your environment to pump a little happiness in your life. When I smelled it I thought it smelled of jasmine and citrus. I had Jason smell it and he thought of root beer smell, which i also could see. Either way it smells good and will be a nice living room spray.
Chakra Booster: These are temporary tattoos that will last 3-8 days depending on skin type, activity level and exposure to the elements. They are easily removed with baby oil and a cotton ball. These assist the 3rd Chakra and are to be place them on the Solar Plexis in the front and back.
Votive Candle: This is a yellow and happiness candle. The instructions suggest to carve your name and date of birth in the side to assist energy flow to you. The longer the candle burns the stronger the intentions are. This candle is made with Juniper, Pine and Patchouli. I loved watching this burn and love the color yellow, so a win for me.
I am not sure if the items in the box worked, but that could be largely because of me. I am a skeptical person and generally believe that this stuff works by the placebo effect. That being said, I loved the quality of the products included and the clarity and shine on the stones. I plan on putting the stones on my credenza, allowing me to enjoy them more often than if they were squirreled away. I feel like for the price the quality and the amount of products included is worth the money and a great value. I love that the box necessitated the need for me to step out side my comfort zone and learn something that I really knew nothing about. I believe any opportunity to step out side ones comfort zone should be taken – take a step with me.
