Moon Days: Lunar Beauty

I really try to follow the Moon phases for my beauty routine. The Moon really affects our bodies through each of the different phases, so take note how She affects you. I hate to generalize, as everyone is different, but try this out for month and see how it works for you! I would love to know!

New Moon: This is a great time to start a detox or new diet or lifestyle change. The sun and moon energies are aligned and the New Moon marks new beginnings. It will be easier and your body will respond more. Get out your dandelion tincture and start adding it to your tea!

Waxing Moon: Our bodies absorb the best during this time, so drink lots of water, eat plenty of fresh fruit and veggies, and apply the lotions and potions for maximum efficiency. Want your hair to grow faster? Cut it during the Waxing moon to stimulate more hair growth. Also, I try to incorporate more movement and exercise during this energy of growing movement.

Full Moon: The Full Moon is the peak of the cycle, so this is the best time to have a facial, and applying face masks for extra potency. Be careful though, it is also said pain is heightened during this time and we are more likely to bleed more, so do not opt for surgery or painful beauty treatments.

Waning Moon: Purifying and detoxing treatments are best during this phase. Whip out your bath salts, get in a sauna, do some hot yoga, and create your own facial steams right now. Dye your hair during this time too, as it should last longer. And since hair growth is slower, pluck your eyebrows and get any waxing treatments done now too. You are less likely to bleed as much.

Astrology signs play a role too! Water signs < Pisces, Scorpio, and Cancer> help absorption; Fire signs < Leo, Sagittarius, and Aries > are better for purifying; Earth signs < Virgo, Taurus, and Capricorn > nourish; and Air < Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius > are more stimulating. Keep these in mind!

I hope these little beauty tips help! Luna is always a great guide :)

10 Day Fast in Moments

1// Nature walk.
2// Hello I'm Marissa and I am addicted to guacamole.
3// Homemade tea latte.
4// Happy mail day.
5// New Moon brewing.
6// Trying my creations.
7// Unleashing my inner-warrioress. aka working out.
8// Studying.
9// Museum date.
10// Label making!

Basically, I felt isolated and lonely during my fast, but it put things into perspective. Balancing the technology world and physical world we live in, especially us bloggers and online business owners, can be a challenge. I will not be adding FB back on my phone- so not necessary to me now, but I am happy to go back to the private groups I am in for support. And instagram! I will continue to add these moments into my days though. Balance is key. Overall, it was a very productive 10 days!

Happy Valentine's Day! Hope it is a lovely one. I'll be staying in tonight with my boys (Jimmy and little Theo). I am not one to emphasize today, but Valentine's is special to me because it was also our second date. I wasn't sure if he knew that and I definitely didn't want to mention it at the time. No pressure! He later told me he knew, and tried to get me some flowers but they were all sold out, haha. We went to a little whole in the wall Italian restaurant and then watched Amelie <3 So that's why Valentine's day is special to me :)

Love and Blessings,

Daughters of Earth Launch



I am partaking in Laura Emily's Daughter of Earth Launch and Magazine, where a community of healer women, warrioress women, women leaders, and mostly all of the above, come together to support each other's gifts and offerings.

Are you intrigued? Want to find out more? I know I am.

Well LE is offering a free call for whoever wants to find out more:

Daughters of Earth - Holistic Offering Launch Q + A Conference Call 
If Daughters of Earth is calling your name but you're unsure, join me on Jan 13th. Let's get cozy with a mess of quilts, a cup of tea, and have ourselves a heart to heart chat. Get a feel for what Daughters of Earth is all about, the intentions and goals surrounding this circle, about the DoE magazine/podcast launch members will participate and contribute with, or simply ask the growing question, "what is the difference between the Apothecary Circle and Daughters of Earth?" :)

I'm looking for the Baba Yagas. The Wild Women living out in the dark, ready and willing to step out, cultivate their Light offering, and build something beautiful for 2013.

This call will be recorded and playback details will be provided afterwards.


Sunday, January 13th 12 pm Pacific Time

Dial-in Number: (605) 475-4000 Access Code: 943191#


See you there!
Love and Blessings,

Marissa Moondaughter
