Autumn Self-Care Kit
This kit has been put together to bring a daily ritual into your life.
Autumn signifies a new cycle for our self-development, a time of reflection and rest allowing for our creativity, intuition and vision to develop and grow. As the nights draw in, the days are shorter, and as we spend more time in darkness, we face our own darkness within, our ‘shadow self’. During Autumn you are invited to embrace all of your shadow self through self-love rituals.
Discovering the parts of you that you suppress and love them regardless, will help you move forward in life. This is a time when nature goes to sleep, and the low rising sun looks more beautiful than ever. A time to remember loved ones and our Ancestors. The veil between spirituality and the earth will be at its thinnest, inviting you to embrace your psychic powers and intuition.
A Palo Santo Stick with Selenite to smudge whenever your intuition is guiding you. Palo Santo (also known as holy wood) has so many beautiful qualities and is used to bring good energy and luck into your living space. It raises your vibration and enhances creativity. In addition, it prepares you and your space for better spiritual connections. The healing benefits are to help stress, anxiety and depression and has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiseptic properties.
The magical and mystical tradition of harvesting the tree is very special. For the wood to receive its spiritual and healing properties the tree or branches of the tree has to die naturally. The tree and its branches have to then remain in its natural habitat for a minimum of four years. Only then it’s sacred qualities can come alive.
Selenite - named after the Greek goddess of the moon Selene, Selenite crystals are white in colour and have many healing and mystical properties - it is a crystallized form of Gypsum, which is used for good luck and protection. The powerful vibration of Selenite can clear, open, and activate the Crown and Higher Chakras and is excellent for all types of spiritual work. Selenite can also be used to strengthen the memory. Wipe your crystal with a damp cloth only and re-charge under a Full or New Moon, you can also smudge your crystal with your Palo Santo.
A Bay Leaf – On the night of the New Moon, write one intention on your leaf, then set fire to it holding tongs or a pair of tweezers. Make sure you have a fire proof dish and water close by. You can either release the ashes to the atmosphere or bury them in soil.
A Spell Jar for protection, cleansing, healing, remembrance, re-birth, bringing you closer to your loved ones and, happiness.

A Sage Clearing and Cleansing Spray to spray your aura and your living space. Made with pure essential oils, (sage, clary sage and lavender) aqua and magick.
This handmade smudging spray is a collaboration with Janet Halcrow from Crystal Healing and me, Emily from Crystalight Candles. Before this spray was made, an intention was set, to space clear and cleanse any area that you wish to clear stagnant stuck energy.
Sage is considered one of the most sacred of herbs and is known to clear and cleanse stagnant energy in your space. Sage will spiritually stimulate and clarify the mind while exhibiting a balancing, uplifting, soothing, and strengthening effect on the senses to ease negativity.
Clary Sage encourages calm and restoration. It has physical and psychological attributes and promotes contentment and self-love. Clary Sage awakens the subconscious, bringing harmony and purpose.
Lavender represents the warmth of Mother Earth bringing incredible calming and healing. It provides spiritual healing, encourages compassion & promotes love, protection and cleansing.
The Pentagram – this symbol has been around since the Stone Age and symbolises Protection, driving away unwanted energies.
Moon and Sun - the moon represents your subconscious mind and spirituality. The Sun represents your identity and how you express yourself to the world. Let this charm guide you in the light and darkness.
Tree of Life – is a reminder of our journey through life and the self-discovery and awareness along the way. As the tree grows its branches out and up towards the sky, while its roots go deeper into the earth, we too can use our minds to learn more wisdom and experience more, whilst feeling grounded and connected to Mother Earth.
