Beauty by the moon

All those who wander are not lost… they are on a treasure hunt – for the beauty we lost in our mad rush to get ahead of lives. It is indeed magical to slow down once in a while, look around and see the magic that breathes through every creation around us. Those, who can see it, are gifted, I believe.

Discovered in wildflowers and bushes sprouting through sidewalks on NYC streets, Fat and The Moon celebrates the same kind of magic. Rachel, the in-house-creator-of-magic, discovered mugwort and its medicinal properties almost accidentally. But this turned into a passion and celebration and ultimately, the creation of the most boho-chic beauty brand I’ve come across till date – Fat and The Moon.

Every product at Fat and The Moon is handcrafted. But that’s not the only reason to go for it. The ingredients – aloe, chamomile, lavender, yarrow, calendula – are grown right on the farm where Rachel has her workshop. The plants are planted by the moon cycle, and when the team is not harvesting the produce and turning it into a magic potion for your skin and hair and well-being; everybody is busy weaving, basket making, cooking, hammering out jewelry, tanning all kinds of hides, scavenging treasures at low tide and last but not least, downloading audio-books. (That’s what Rachel tells!)

When you create something with such passion and infuse it with joy, love and fun; it ought to be magical. Many of the Fat & The Moon offerings have had me glued to them. However, if you are confused at where to get started, you should definitely go for their stains and eye coals – they are just AMAZING!

A New Ritual

Life is so easy to identify in the little patterns and insignificant rituals we form. Once created, they continue to repeat themselves over and over again, claiming space in our lives; constructing, destructing and defining the way we are.

The ritual I am specifically talking about today is a superficial one, but nonetheless important – skincare. Think of all the things that have been rubbed off or rubbed in your skin through all these years. Now, take a minute to think how many of those were actually harmless; how many of them were actually safe and made your skin feel happy.

We’ve all been there once – using chemicals blatantly to keep up the appearances, to keep the ritual going on uninterruptedly till one day we got to see the ‘ugly’ side of beauty and tried to turn towards the nature. Erika, the brain, body and soul behind Ritualist Skincare is one of those people.

Through a simple change in my skincare routine, I learnt that sometimes, you have to break down and over a ritual that you once created for self, to begin again and create something even better, more beautiful and more gratifying. I am certain that Ritualist Skincare would make you, too, feel the same way. Explore the entire range here.
