My brain has been going on strike lately. I swear, I get into these slumps where I walk around and forget what I got up to do in the first place. The joys of getting older I suppose. That plus I always tend to take on way to many projects at once. Makes it so much harder to keep things straight when I do that! Maybe the February MoonBox can help put my thoughts back in order!
MoonBox, who very kindly sent me this box for review, is a monthly spiritual/new age subscription service. Before each full moon, you'll receive a box filled with holistic crystals, oils and other moon related items. With everything you need to complete the months included moon ritual, you can use these gifts to deepen your connection to the moon, your inner self, and the community that supports you. Want to test it out? MoonBox is offering DDG readers 20% off your first box! Just use code VIRGOLOVE at checkout! Valid thru 3/20/16.
I'll say this. New Age subscriptions are not my typical everyday kind of box so I'm never sure what to expect when I open one up. This one makes s great first impression though. It's packaging is unique and well done!
February was the Virgo Moonbox and the included information sheet gives you the rundown on all the products featured in your box.
Enclosed is a gorgeous card with details on the Virgo Moon and what it signifies. Also included is a scroll with all the steps to guide you through your meditation. Subscribers are also emailed a link to the in depth, full length recorded meditation.
I love a good cup of tea, don't you? A perfect meditation tool to help you relax and get into a good headspace. This particular tea is made from a blend of fennel, dandelion root, ginger, hibiscus, holy basil, elderberry, licorice root & rhodiola root.
Don't believe I have ever seen a gemstone spirit essence before. Created under a full moon, this is an energetic remedy that works through our energetic and emotional body.
I may not be heavily into the New Age movement, but I can always appreciate a great essential oil and its properties. This one is made with Lemongrass, rosemary, marjoram, thyme, white and black spruce, spearmint and peppermint.
Now crystals I can dig. I've always had a fascination with the mystical and spiritual connections behind certain gemstone. Here's a bit about each type included:
Peridot --- a green, heart chakra stone found in Pakistan. Enhances connections with friendliness and relationships with compassion. Peridot is a stone of rebirth, renewal and repair.
Quartz Point --- A clear stone found in Arkansas (my home state!) that connects to all chakras. It amplifies all energies and is the time keeper and healer of our planet. Great for magnifying your intentions.
Labradorite --- Comes in various colors and found in Madagascar, this stone connects to the third eye and crown chakras. Steeped in mystic magical mystery and is known as the stone of the stars. Use this gem to connect with those mysterious realms we all dream of.
Despite the fact that I am near clueless in the New Age department, I still really enjoyed this box and what each item represents and ties to. It's a great mixture of items and the meditation instructions are very clear and super easy to follow, even if you are clueless like myself! Moon Box is definitely a box to try and a great way to connect and clear your mind, body and energy all around you!
