Something a bit different for you today, whilst not strictly beauty related, these Ritual Kits from The Owl & The Apothecary are something I know will appeal to many. I have known Katy, the founder of The Owl & The Apothecary for a few years now and her business is a really fun and innovative one.
The Owl & The Apothecary is all about rituals, small acts that help us focus, forge our own paths or recover from set backs. Personally I am a big believer in finding small daily rituals to help us feel more connected to the world, it is easy to write small things off as unimportant, but I don’t think so at all. I wrote about my experience of creating a moodboard, to help with setting and achieving goals and creativity after attending one of Katy’s workshops last year. As well as the workshops, which I highly recommend, Katy has created a selection of Ritual kits complete with ritual guide for a little touch of magic any time.
Katy kindly sent me the Abundance ritual kit, featuring some lovely items. You get a smudge stick for cleansing; I have to confess, this is something I have never done before, but it involves burning bundles of dried aromatic herbs. There is something very satisfying about watching the smoke gently flow from the smudge stick, certainly a ritual I will be doing again.
Next there is a beautiful Citrine crystal, I only own a handful of crystals, but I love how they look on display, even if I don’t know always know much about their properties. Citrine is specifically chosen for this kit for bringing prosperity, the guide gives some lovely affirmations to use with the crystal, which is a nice touch.
The beautiful luna candles make the rituals really visual and fun. I have always found lighting a candle to be a soothing and calming act, so having the luna candles as part of the ritual kit is a wonderful addition.
Last but not least you get the gorgeous Abundance Pulse point with clary sage, lavender and geranium essential oils. A really beautiful oil to use for meditation and general relaxation. The ritual kit is such a sweet gift either to a loved one or to self and comes so beautifully presented. A lovely way to set some good intentions for the months ahead, I loved using mine.
