July Astral Box - Chakras
I have been receiving monthly Astral Boxes from Astral Collective for about three months and wanted to share what was in this month's box with you. The theme for the July box was Chakras, and while I don't know much about the chakras, this has been my favorite box so far.
A Set of Gemstones & A Chakra Card Set
The set of crystals is my favourite thing in this month's box. This month. we received seven gemstones which were all in a lovely pouch. The gemstones correspond to each chakra:
- Red Jasper - Root Chakra (Muladhara)
- Carnelian - Sacral Chakra (Swadhisthana)
- Tigers Eye - Solar plexus (Manipura)
- green aventurine - Heart Chakra (Anahata)
- Lapis Lazuli - Throat Chakra (Vishuddha)
- Amethyst - Third Eye Chakra (Ajna)
- Clear Quartz - Crown Chakra (Sahasrara)
The cards were pretty neat as well. The cards list the gemstones, essential oils, and, colours they correspond to. With the cards, you can draw one randomly to see what area of your life needs working on ( did this and pulled the heart chakra, which is all about love, joy, and inner peace; I haven't been feeling the best lately, so it was very timely).
A set of upper chakra essential oil rollers infused with crystals
I absolutely love these essential rollers; each roller is 10ml (the size of a full-size roller perfume) and is mixed with almond oil as a carrier oil. Because it uses a carrier oil I have no qualms about using it on my skin and have been using them on my wrists, behind my ears, and on the chakra points they correspond to (I don't like using neat essential oils on my skin, you can read more about why here). The oils are also infused with crystals, and the roller balls are crystals as well.
- Crown Chakra - lavender essential oil with clear quartz
- Third eye chakra - peppermint oil with amethyst
- throat chakra - eucalyptus oil with lapis lazuli
Chakra & Lava Stone balancing bracelet and Neat Natural Perfume Mini
I have wanted a piece of lava stone jewelry for the longest time, so you know I was super excited that I received one in this month's Astral Box. This bracelet is made of glass & gemstone beads and lava stone to keep you grounded. The thing that excited me most about this bracelet is that you can drop essential oils on to the lava stone for day-long aromatherapy (I want to get a lava stone necklace at some point because I feel a little self conscious about walking around sniffing my wrist).
The Neat Naturals perfume mini was another item I was excited about. I first heard about Neat Naturals while skimming through a magazine at the doctor's office and instantly wanted to buy their perfumes (their packaging looks amazing, and their roducts are natural and cruelty free). The mini I received in my box was Little petal, which contains sweet almond oil, vanilla, rose, jojoba, jasmine, and bergamot; it's a little sweet and a lot floral, which is right up my alley..
Astral Collective Balancing Bath Soak
The last thing in my box was Astral Collective's balancing bath soak (as well as their monthly subscription boxes, they also sell skincare, e-courses, and other spiritual goodies). The bath soak contains a blend of salt and essential oils and is designed to keep you balanced, realign your chakras and lock in the light. I don't have a bath, but this soak can be used as a foot soak or in the shower as a steamer (a steamy essentially oily shower does sound kind of nice, but I think I'd rather wait until I was somewhere with a bath to use it).
I am so happy with this box, and I can't wait until August's theme is announced.
