Review of the Shop Fey Herba Organics & Interview with Owner Christina Dawson

March, 2019

Fey Herba Organics

Organic Skincare, Natural Beauty, Holistic Healing,
Enchanted Decor

If you have found your way to Fey Herba Organics Instagram feed, then you, too, have been feasting on bright, gorgeous photos, that leave a smile on your face. Fey Herba Organics sell crystals, along with, amazing looking handmade products… “crafted by the sun & under the moon.

I wanted to see for myself if Fey Herba Organics products were as full of herbs and bright smiles as they seemed to be. So the owner Christina Dawson, sent us a box!

I received a box of her products, a beautifully handwritten card, and an incense stick. The card was a personal note and a lovely touch. The incense stick was dragon’s blood and smelled beautiful, burned well, and long. All of this got me so excited to open the box!!

Let’s get to it and see what
I pull from this box first!

DeLuna Oil

For attuning to the moon. Moon charged. Includes labradorite, black obsidian, quartz, amethyst, moonstone, & a mix of herbs & oils. The bottle is made of glass and it’s a roll on. The smell is of a lovely sweet perfume. The bottle is FULL of herbs and crystals. I have never seen a company actually use more than just one crystal in their bottles. I am impressed, with what I can see and smell.

Crystals

Next up I find a pretty bag of
stones. What I like about these stones is that they are not the
usual stones you would get in a box! I received:

Peacock Ore with a gorgeous
blue patina.

Apache Tear, a node which reminds me of a moon or lava rock.

Amethyst a beautiful shade of
light purple.

Lepidolite that is so
iridescent, shiny, and smooth.

My picture does not do these
stones any justice. I took a billion photos but could not get one
better then this. I apologize. The shine, colors, energies, make up
for size. Plus they are more costly stones then the usual stones
given by most.

Lavender
& Rose Aura Cleanse Mist

A powerful mist to wear daily or use to cleanse your sacred space. Moon charged. Amethyst, black tourmaline, & quartz, rose water, & lavender with other ingredients. You can definitely smell the lavender and sage in there cleansing and calming your sacred space. The smell is strong without being overpowering. It’s soothing almost automatically. It comes in a glass spray bottle.

Mixed
Loose Herbs

This bag of wonderful smelling
herbs is to be be burned as incense or kept. I can see in the sachet
sage, lavender, rose petals… I’m gonna keep it as is.

Go
Smudge Yourself Oil

A smudge you can take everywhere with you. It is in a small glass roller bottle and contains all the ingredients you would need for a great smudge! Moon charged, snowflake obsidian, quartz, & sage infused with so much more. You can see all the stones and herbs in the bottle!! With no problem making out what is what! The smell is deep cleansing. The oil fades into your skin wonderfully and the scent permeates an earthy smell to ground you. In my final thoughts I added ideas of how I use it.

Complete
Box

My Final Thoughts on Fey Herba Organics … I am so impressed with Fey Herba Oraganics!! Now this is a shop that lives up to what it says. Quality handmade products. Christina Dawson has delivered exactly what she has shown in Fey Herba Organics pictures on her Instagram feed. Beautiful, make you smile products, that shine and they actually work! I have been taking Fey Herba Organics Go Smudge Yourself on the go with me and it grounds me everywhere. It is the perfect size. Fits right in your purse (I carry tiny purses). You can take it everywhere and when you feel negative energy, or just not right, or like me panicky, take a small dab to the wrist and sniff! I, also, use the Aura Mist in my bedroom to keep it peaceful. I enjoy the new crystals that Fey Herba Oraganics added to my collection. I didn’t have a few of them previously. It is nice to see something different in a box. I highly recommend Fey Herba Oraganics. Christina Dawson makes really top quality products!

The
Interview

I was lucky to get a chance to ask owner of Fey Herba Oraganics, Christina Dawson, some questions. Here’s our chat:

Jennifer
Wright: How did your business come about?

Christina
Dawson:
I started crafting
organic skincare and spiritual aids (such as my oils, mists soaps+)
because I wanted to share my love of the natural world with everyone.

Jennifer
Wright: How did you begin?

Christina
Dawson:
I’ve always had an
interest in plants and crystals, and once I got pregnant, I wanted to
ensure that everyone had access to affordable, organic skincare that
provides spiritually uplifting and protective qualities.

Jennifer
Wright: How do you choose what to create?

Christina
Dawson:
I follow my basic
principles of life: which include protection, peace, prosperity,
passion, and spiritual awareness. Each item is crafted by my hand
with loving intention per my customer’s need.

Jennifer
Wright: Where do you sell your products & do you make
subscription boxes?

Christina Dawson: I have an online shop Fey Herba Oraganics where I sell my products and I love to craft custom bundles.

Jennifer
Wright: Are you, yourself, Pagan?

Christina
Dawson:
I am a spiritual
naturalist, I love utilizing the tools from nature and incorporating
their magick into products for every day use.

Jennifer
Wright: What types of interests do you have?

Christina
Dawson:
I love reading,
gardening, cooking, and writing. My husband and I love hiking and
kayaking – anything outdoorsy. We have a young son we love to take
on adventures and love making memories.

Jennifer
Wright: Did you feel the Pagan world was missing something to make
you create your products?

Christina
Dawson:
I wanted to provide
natural options for those who are becoming aware of their spiritual
side.

My
goal is to aid others in amplifying their personal power. WE all
have our own magick and the right to claim it.

Jennifer
Wright: Do you have a site and sell other types of products?

Christina Dawson: My online Etsy store is Fey Herba Oraganics and my Instagram Page is @fey_herba. I craft skincare as well as spiritual aids.

I’d like to thank Christina Dawson for taking the time to talk with me about her wonderful shop Fey Herba Oraganics & herself. It was great getting to know about her and what drives her. It’s nice to see that behind a great product is a wonderful woman.

The Magickal Earth

 

Nature’s Miracles”

 

This month we are diving into a box that is deceivingly small by The Magickal Earth. Their Premium Subscription Box is packed to the gills with items “curated to offer guidance through the months astrological phase. The box will always feature a monthly astrological overview, a brief monthly horoscope, a tarot card chosen for you by the universe, crystals and gems to match the months energy, along with a variation of surprises including items such as, candles, essential oils, soap and, smudge sticks.”

All of this is included in the Premium Subscription Box for only $49.99 a month. This is just one of the Subscription Boxes that The Magickal Earth has to offer. They range in price from a mere $14.99 to $49.99 and cover a variety of wants and needs, from Crystal Boxes to Bath Boxes.

 

Now, let’s get into the box!


The smell emanating from the box is delicious and enticing. It makes me want to tear it open in a rush, but I must be methodical! So I open it carefully and peek inside.

First things first…what do we pull out???

 

Astrology Reading

When you are ordering your box you are asked to give your birth date. This is because The Magickal Earth includes a personal monthly astrology reading with this subscription box. I’m a Libra as you can see. You also get a pamphlet with planetary influences & energies for the month of the sign of the box.

 

One Card Pull

A one card Tarot pull is done for you. My card chosen was Temperance. They send you the card that is pulled for you along with another sheet that explains the Tarot card. It is up to you to read how this card plays in your life.

 

Abalone Smudge Shell

I am in love with this Abalone Shell. It’s large and very iridescent inside, delicate seeming, but sturdy, and gorgeous. The picture only sort of catches a bit of rainbow on the inside.

The iridescence is carried over the outside over a silver finish. There are a few “portholes” along the side that just add to the beauty. On the “mound side” there is a slight rusty patina on some of the holes giving it a real sea feeling.

 

BloodStone

Now this is an awesome piece of Blood stone that The Magickal Earth sends you. It is a big, smooth, tumbled piece. It is the size of the palm of your hand. It feels delicate, you don’t want to drop it. The color play in the stone is mesmerizing. A small card with some facts about Bloodstone accompanies the stone.

 

Quartz & Green Aventurine Stones

Two pieces of Quartz. They are both points. One is unique as it has a two points connected, one off shoot from the side. The larger one is a decent size, and the tinier one is on a small-scale but the uniqueness of it makes up for that.

The Green Aventurine is marbled with two shades of a light and dark green. It is smooth, tumbled, and medium-sized. A beautiful specimen.

 

Citrine

This is my favorite piece of Citrine that I have ever seen. I am amazed at the generous size. It is simply gorgeous! This picture does not do it justice. I could not get one that did. A huge piece of rough Citrine. A cloudy white base that rises to a deep yellow top that is flecked with almost rust colored specs. The vibrations coming from this stone are amazing.

 

Lip Care

Lip care by Night Bloom Apothecary is included in the Subscription Box. It feels very moisturizing on the lips. The scent is natural. It leaves a fresh feeling behind. When you rub your lips together it blends in nicely. It’s not overly oily feeling on your mouth or gooky.

 

Bar of Soap

Minty Magic is the name of the bar. The sticker on the back of the packaging tells you all the ingredients. It has a true mint scent, not a sweet mint, but a fresh mint scent. It lathers nicely and leaves behind a clean feeling, not dry.

 

 

Crystal Infused Energy Cleansing Mist


This blend is by NightBloom Apothecary. You can see the herbs & stones in this mixture. More so than I have seen in other’s that I have reviewed. You shake it and hear the many crystals chime against each other. When reading the ingredients you see they are pure de-stressers; lavender, clary sage, etc… The scent is amazing and it leaves you feeling soothed.

 

Stand and Smudge Stick to Complete Smudge Set

Now I am on the bottom of the box and what do I find? The Magickal Earth truly meant for this to be a Smudge Set. They have included a Stand. I thought the gorgeous Abalone Shell was just a stand alone. This is a great surprise. It’s a very nice wooden stand accompanied by a large smudge stick. This is a most wonderful Smudge Set.

 

My Overall Opinion…

I found The Magickal Earth to have a very impressive box. I really enjoyed their theme of cleansing in the box and think they kept it on target with great products made of wonderful quality. The portions in their Subscription Box were very generous. I have found my new citrine for working with. The Smudge Kit is a great gift for those new to smudging as well as those who have been smudging for years. The Energy Cleansing Mist impressed me the most with it’s quality. I also, really appreciated their personal attention with the astrology reading & one card drawing.  It really personalizes your box, you know no one else is getting a box like yours.  They spent time thinking about just you for the moment.  This box is most definitely Worth the Witch!

 

We got to speak with the woman behind The Magickal Earth boxes, Janet Barto, and ask her the usual from Worth the Witch. Here is what Janet had to say…

PaganPagesOrg (PPO): What brought the idea of your box to you?

Janet Barto(JB): When we started the Magickal Earth we started not with the subscription box in mind. I wanted to do what I loved most and that was crystals and rocks. The subscription box idea just came. We looked at the different boxes being offered and wanted to be unique. Thus, we came up with combining Astrology, Tarot and Crystals together.

PPO: How did you begin them?

JB: I won’t lie, it was a huge process. So much research went into every aspect. From Designing the box to how the contents would be included. I must say it is very hard work to start a subscription box. Especially ours and other like ours. So much attention to every detail. When you start you want every single piece to be absolutely perfect.

PPO: How do you choose what you include inside of them?

JB: First, we look at the Astrological calendar, then we look at the season, and from there I let my intuition take it home. Every item is hand chosen. Every item has a meaning of some kind to make it all part of the whole.

PPO: Is yours a recurring monthly box?

JB: Yes, we offer our box in many forms. We have a recurring box on Cratejoy and on our website. We then also off 3 or 6 month subscriptions at a discounted rate. Costing ranges from $14.99 delivered to $49.99 delivered.

PPO: Are you, yourself pagan?

JB: I am a second degree priestess within Chalice Hart in Washington. I am also a medium and I have trained in Shaman work.

PPO: Tell us about your interests.

JB: I have 2 business I now run full-time. But when I get to play we go on Jeep Runs. We do a lot of off roading in the mountains. I also love Football and Baseball.

PPO: Did you feel the pagan world was missing something to make you create your Box?

JB: This is a good question. I believe the answer is that I wanted ordinary people who had interests in Astrology and in Tarot to be able to order a box that was not just about witchcraft or spells. Kind of a middle ground. I wanted to really try to express that we are all part of the universe no matter what religion or craft you follow.

PPO: Do you have a site and sell other products?

JB: Our website is still a work in progress. As we are doing the boxes we are meeting people with many wonderful handmade items. Magickal Earth is about anything that comes from the Earth.

Our goal at The Magickal Earth is about personal attention. When you order from us we think hard about exactly the right stone or item to pick out for you. We understand how difficult it is for people to order crystals online. It is hard to not be able to see or feel. So when we are choosing for you, we are thinking hard about you and letting the universe help us chose the right one.

The Magickal Earth is growing everyday. And we believe that those who order from us become part of our family. It is all about our connection to them through the universe.

 

I think they really understood and connected with me. From my readings…to the crystals that really rang a note with me…this was an incredible box. Thank you Janet Barto for taking the time to chat with us. You really have an incredible box on your hands.

Retha’s Crystal Reflections

October, 2018

Protection Stones

This month I think is an appropriate time to discuss protecting yourself, your aura & your space. You can use many tools to remove negative energy from your environment, such as salt, smudge, herbs etc, but my favorite way is with crystal allies of course!

There are tons of crystals we could discuss but for lengths sake we will talk about my top 10 protection stones. They are not in any order, I encourage you to work with or wear as many of these amazing stones as you can!

Smoky Quartz: Smoky quartz is one of my favorite stones for many reasons, but for wearing as a protection amulet it is my go to. I try to wear it every single day. It not only absorbs any negative energy around you, it also transmute that energy. So its such an important tool we have been given by mama Gaia. I recommend smoky quartz for wearing and for placing inside the front entrance to your home. It will absorb any negative energy ickys being brought inside your space from all who enter. It doesn’t need to be a huge specimen, a simple smoky quartz tumble is perfect. It’s also a master healer and when placed on the body will remove toxic energies, neutralize negativity and infuse the body with healing white light. It also relieves painful emotions. I have personally seen how powerful this crystal is and can’t recommend a stone any higher.

Black Tourmaline: Black tourmaline is kinda the big gun of protection stones. It’s very heavy and strong. It removes negative energy within a person or a space.  I prefer black tourmaline buried on the four corners of the property lines, or placed in the four corners of the home. It’s also the perfect stone for protection in your vehicle as it protects from theft. I keep a black tourmaline pendant hanging from my rear view mirror. It cleanses, purifies and transforms dense energy into a lighter vibration. It balances, harmonizes and protects all chakras.  It’s also another great one to wear on your body as jewelry. 

Black Tourmaline Rutile: This is simply black tourmaline bars within a quartz matrix. Quartz is the ultimate magnification stone, so this is black tourmaline magnified. Black rutile cleanses and energizes the aura. It draws off negative energies and disease and helps one let go of the past. It also gives protection from the ill thoughts of others. I also love the look of black tourmaline rutile, it’s so neat looking. So this is a favorite in jewelry pieces. 

Garnet: Garnet is to me gentle loving protection, and I keep a huge piece of it on my coffee table at all times. It’s to me protection of the emotions and mind. If I’m feeling stressed or on edge this is the stone I turn to for comfort & safety. It’s a talisman of protection and unyielding strength. It increases willpower and resistance to all things negative. It’s a spiritual stone of psychic protection. One of my favorite stones to wear as jewelry. 

Black Onyx: Black Onyx is stone that absorbs, transforms and prevents the drain of personal energy. It helps provide emotional and physical strength when support is needed during stressful, confusing or tumultuous times. It’s a good stone for grief. It also protects you from psychic attack and guards the wearer from the evil eye.

Black Kyanite: Black Kyanite is a stone that instantly upon contact clears anything of negative energy. It also never needs to be cleansed. It’s a great stone to keep on hand, if you get a new stone or piece of jewelry you can just touch the black kyanite to it and its clear & ready to go. So simple! I also keep a blade of black kyanite with my tarot & oracle cards. When i pull them out to use them I always place my black kyanite on top for a minute before I shuffle. Black Kyanite clears all energy blockages and imbalances within the chakras. It aligns, grounds and centers. It elevates the level of good vibrations within the energy field. It repairs tears or holes when placed upon the chakra points with its healing energy. Obviously wearing this stone will keep you clean and clear of any unwanted energies as well. Its a spectacular stone!

Aegirine: This is a rarer more expensive stone but well worth the trouble to find. Its claim to fame and what makes this stone unique is its ability to act as a shield that guards the aura, all while assisting the wearer to discover their courage and confidence in refining their power and strength. It’s known as a “guardian harmonizer”. It removes negative cords and energy attachments within the auric field. It also protects from electromagnetic smog. 

Obsidian: Obsidian is strongly protective and forms a shield against negativity. It blocks psychic attacks and absorbs negative energy from the environment. It draws out mental stress and tension. It’s a cleaner of psychic smog created in your aura. Obsidian is an auric cleanser. Specifically golden sheen or silver sheen obsidian can be used as a “bar of soap” and run along the entire body making back and forth motions like you are scrubbing away all negativity from your auric field. 

Selenite: Selenite is a beautiful, easy to find and inexpensive crystal that u can use to clear other stones, clear a space, open ritual circle or sacred space and clear yourself. It has an angelic feeling to me. Pure white light. It looks like it’s literally glowing sometimes. Selenite resonates at higher frequencies. Used for undoing the effects of negative emotions on one’s mind and body. Placing on the body it removes unwanted or negative energies.  A great beginner stone as well. I love a flat piece of selenite or charging plate that you can place smaller stones or your jewelry on to clear. 

Shungite: Shungite is a detoxifier and a cleanser. It kills and devours anything that harms people and then restores what is good. Its been called “miracle stone” and “stone of life”. It has been used for water purification since ancient Rome. It’s also a good stone to protect yourself from harmful EMF’s. I keep a Shungite pyramid in front of my tv for this purpose. It’s also a perfect stone to wear, especially if you are around a lot of different energies in the workplace, such as hospitals and trauma centers. Shungite keeps you from picking up negative and unwanted energy from others and the environment. 

I hope this is a useful brief explanation of some helpful crystals to work with for whatever type of protection you are needing. These are all staples in my crystal collection and I can’t imagine doing without them! 

On another note, if you are looking to start gridding, or in the market for crystal grids, I encourage you to read my three grid reviews/interviews that are in this months content here on Pagan Pages. Grids for all price points and different materials. Check it out! Thanks for stopping by this month and I hope you will come back next month! 

Have a blessed Samhain!

Love & crystal blessings,      Xoxo Retha
