New Moon Guide | July 31st, 2019

August 1, 2019

The new moon arrived on July 31st at 10:11pm CT.

 

Mercury finally turned direct yesterday — time to celebrate! Things should feel less out-of-whack in the coming weeks, particularly when it comes to technology and communication. While we’re not out of the woods yet (post-retrograde is real), allow yourself time to reflect on the lessons taught by Mercury Retrograde. Are you ready to pencil in a digital detox? Did a miscommunication reveal perspectives you hadn’t previously considered? This is the perfect time to turn inward and hold yourself accountable.

Try approaching goals on a monthly basis. What are a few things you’d like to accomplish in August? Meditate on it, write it down on paper, and keep the goals somewhere visible. (Think: bathroom mirror, on your desk, bookmarked in your journal, or by your bed.) Check in with your goals throughout the month to make sure you’re on track. Remember to use a positive and encouraging tone with yourself. Only had time to pencil in 15 minutes of meditation instead of a yoga class? That’s better than nothing andtomorrow’s a new day.

This new moon brings a shake-up — whether that be a break-up or breakthrough. It’s an ideal time to turn over a new leaf or start something you’ve been putting off. Start that blog. Apply to your dream job. Make that dating profile. It’s Leo season after all.

Remember to practice patience during this cycle. Try to slowly emerge from Mercury Retrograde and be mindful of lessons learned.

The new moon is always the right time to set intentions and question old habits. What’s working well for you? Where could you make space to try something new?

3 Tips for Choosing an Effective Eye Cream

June 24, 2019

If Eye Cream isn’t a solid step in your skincare regimen yet, that’s okay. While it’s a good rule of thumb to preventatively incorporate anti-aging products before you need them, it’s never too late to start. 

It can be challenging to navigate the “must-haves” and essential ingredients when shopping for an effective eye cream. We’re proud of each ingredient in our hyperclean formulation, but these three pack the biggest punch in our Eye Cream.

Vitamin K

Research has found Vitamin K to be an extremely healing ingredient. You’re likely incorporating the anti-inflammatory vitamin into your diet via greens like kale or spinach. On a topical level, Vitamin K can help diminish the appearance of dark under-eye circles, making it an instant no-brainer to include in our Eye Cream.

Caffeine

I know it seems a little on-the-nose to literally apply caffeine to tired undereyes, but the antioxidant-rich ingredient is known to reduce the appearance of water retention and puffiness. 

Organic Baobab Seed Oil

This multi-tasking ingredient is filled with Vitamin A, E, and omega fatty acids. In other words, it helps to hydrate skin and fight against external signs of aging.

May 7, 2019

Did you know Mother’s Day is less than a week away? (Don’t freak out!) We’ve compiled wishlists from moms and mentors at milk + honey HQ to guide you in the right direction. Sit back, relax, and scroll on – we’ve done the shopping for you.

milk + honey Home Fragrance No. 08

This is milk + honey spa in a bottle. I feel like I can breathe easier and unwind a little bit more once I’ve spritzed this around the house. I think of it as a simple way to spark joy. My favorite way to use? Open the windows on a sunny day, spray the pillows and sheets, and let the fresh air mix with the lavender/eucalyptus blend for a refreshing ambiance. – Marisa T., mom of a 19-month-old daughter

Luxe Face Oil

An oil that truly lives up to its name. One of my favorite milk + honey skincare items, it is an essential part of my nighttime routine. – Juni H., cat mom

milk + honey Bath Bombs

Opening a large bag of bath bombs on Mother’s Day would make my day! First of all, they smell amazing– such an easy way to bring the spa home with you. Second of all, they are a great way to bribe your kids to take a bath. Two kids in the bathtub = a quiet glass of wine for mom. – Michelle B., mom of two boys

Muscle Bath Soak + Bath and Body Oil No 18

Let’s keep the relaxation going, people. This is my favorite combination of milk + honey products and a great way to bring home the spa experience. – Juni H., cat mom

milk + honey Home Fragrance No. 46

I love my dogs but I definitely don’t want their smell to be the first thing that my guests notice. I layer this fragrance in all areas of my life – in my home, on my sheets, in the bathroom and even in my spin shoes post-workout. The warm, earthy notes revive any stale space. Hands down, my most favorite product on the milk + honey shelves. – Summer S., dog mom

The best part? All orders of $50 or more will receive a complimentary deluxe mini Luxe Face Oil.

Shop all milk + honey favorites.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide | New Mom

April 30, 2019

Gifting the influential women in our lives is obviously important, but sometimes it can be difficult to know where to start. Thankfully, we’ve recruited some mamas at milk + honey HQ to provide a quick (and easy) guide to shopping for Mother’s Day. Today, we hear from Marisa Tom, the Marketing Director at milk + honey and mom to a 19-month-old daughter.

Ultimate Facial
I’m a sucker for a facial and since it’s Mother’s Day, I want all the bells and whistles, too — aka extra cleansing, Ultrasonic Technology, and a Back Treatment.C

milk + honey Home Fragrance No. 08
This is milk + honey spa in a bottle. I feel like I can breathe easier and unwind a little bit more once I’ve spritzed this around the house. I think of it as a simple way to spark joy. My favorite way to use? Open the windows on a sunny day, spray the pillows and sheets, and let the fresh air mix with the lavender/eucalyptus blend for a refreshing ambiance. 

Wild Lather Cold Process Soap
I love stocking my shower with beautiful, invigorating bar soaps, which add a pop of color and texture to the usual lineup of shampoo and conditioner. Right now, I can’t decide between the Tokyo Roast and Kyoto blends, which both remind me of my trip to Japan (one of my favorite places in the world). Shop at milk + honey locations.
