everything in box
Just look at how jam-packed full of Mystical Mermaidy magic this box is! It contained such amazing beachy mystical mermaid magic goodies & was so much fun to uncover each item within. It felt like trinkets from Ariel’s sea cavern.

All of it nice
Let’s take a closer look at the contents of the beautiful Mystical Mermaid box, shall we?

The Crystals:
(This month all the crystals were cleansed in moonlight!)

All Rocks plain

It’s a very peaceful & uplifting stone providing spiritual growth, clear communication, enhanced intuition & a strong connection to the Collective Consciousness. keep this stone with you to keep your chakras unblocked & balanced. This stone will also allow all of the energy received by the upper chakras to be integrated into the lower chakras.

Aquamarine:
Aquamarine resonates with the energy of the ocean, helping the holder to connect with the spirits of the sea. Seamen carried Aquamarine in ancient times to promote safe travel on the water & to protect against drowning. Aquamarine is known to be extremely soothing & can help with courage, protection, & to ease fears & phobias. It allows you to realize your innermost truth & live genuinely. It can also help to hine your intuition, bringing higher frequency information in through the Third Eye Chakra.

Sodalite
:
Sodalite is known to stimulate the Pineal Gland & open up the Third Eye for clear & powerful intuition. It can also help deepen meditation practices as well. With the combination of the Third Eye & Throat Chakra balancing energy it ca help you clearly express the knowledge & information you receive through intuition & connection to the Collective Consciousness. Sodalite can be a bit off-putting at first for some because ut brings to the surface any issues you may be having so that they can be dealt with & worked on.

selenite wand alone
Selenite Wand
:
The name Selenite comes from the Greek word Selene meaning moon. It is a stone of clarity. It can dispel negative energy in people, objects, homes & other crystals. It is one of the only stones that never needs to cleansed or charged, but can be used to cleanse & charge other crystals. Because of this trait, it is very helpful during moon manifestations & rituals to keep your mind & intentions clear & get rid of any lingering negativity or doubt you may be feeling. It is also a very protective stone & can help shield you from outside negativity.

Aligns with the Third Eye, & Crown Chakras & Zodiac sign Taurus.

I’ve always wanted a Selenite Wand in this unicorn horn-type style. I was really surprised & pleased to see such a high-quality one included in this box. It’s incredibly smooth & flashes lovely glowy tones under light. It really is something. I wish I could capture its beauty better in the photographs. It really is a stunner!

Special Duo Rocks with Cards
Aura Amethyst
:
Aura Amethyst fuses amethyst & titanium & has all the same properties of an Amethyst mixed with metal to enhance the energies of the stone. These crystals can bring about change & give you the confidence, strength & power to support moving toward a place that is more aligned with your highest good. It energizes & aligns all chakras & activates & enhances psychic abilities increasing self-awareness & confidence. It draws in Divine energy & repairs breaks in the aura. It enhances spiritual awareness & wisdom & promotes  higher state of consciousness.

Aligns with All Chakras & Zodiac signs Aquarius, Capricorn, Pisces & Virgo.

This Aura Amethyst is also gorgeous! I had trouble capturing its rainbow titanium aura sheens. I know one of the pics is quite blurry but I included it because I felt it did show off the rainbows that the crystal flashed. It came nestled in a little box for safe keeping. Amethysts are one of my very favorite crystals.

Mystic Mermaid Fizzy Bath Salts

These Mystic Mermaid Fizzy Bath Salts smell amazing! They really do envoke a beachy mermaid vibe. I like the cute little touches of the sea shells inside the jar, as well as the pretty ocean blue hue of the actual bath salts themselves.

Pearlized Donkey Ear Sea Shell, & assorted Sea Shells

Shells

You can use to the Pearlized Donkey Ear Shell to burn sage, incense or keep as a little dish on your altar. This trio of sea shells are very nice specimens that look lovely on my altar space.

House of Good Juju Mermaid Magick Soy Candle

I was beyond delighted to see a House of Good Juju Candle in this box! I have seen a lot of her beautiful candles while browsing all things magical on Instagram & I had not had the pleasure yet of getting to try one of her amazing candles out until now. What a perfect candle to include in this Mystical Mermaid themed box. The scent of the candle is beyond words! I can’t smell it & not think of mermaids. It really embodies everything mermaid in a scent if that is possible. Plus, I love the quality, craftsmanship & overall beauty of the candle with the pretty little sea trinkets scattered about the top. It’s a little treasure of the sea candle that brings the ocean vibes right to you!

Gypsy of the Sea Lip Balm*
*an Awakening in a Box Exclusive

lip balm big
This Gypsy of the Sea Lip Balm has a Vanilla Mint flavor/scent that is just the right amount to me. Sometimes lip balms can tend to be overpowering but not this one. I really like it, especially for this time of year.

Mystic Mermaid Tail Soap

This is such a pretty scented Mermaid Tail Soap. I love the color! It is such a cute design!

Mermaid Pouch

Mermaid Pouch
This is such a cute little drawstring pouch! The sea shells were inside. The mermaid reminds me of Ariel from the Little Mermaid. The glitter mermaid design accent is very pretty & is great because it doesn’t fall off or get everywhere like some glitter things can tend to do. This is very well-made.

Awakening in a Box
is quickly becoming one of my favorite crystal/mystic subscription boxes out there right now. The Enlightened boxes are packed with wonderfully curated magical contents to fit the monthly themes. The crystals included in the boxes are great quality & the products chosen to accompany them are amazing.

Favorites
While I of course loved everything included in this box, I had to choose some of my stand-out favorites which were the crystals- especially the Selenite Wand & Aura Amethyst which were both so gorgeous! I also loved the House of Good Juju Mermaid Magick Soy Candle for the beachy-intoxicatingly oceany scent & the little Pearlized Donkey Ear Sea Shell for the beautiful pearly magic sheen that it had to it. It is perfect to collect sage ash from one of the little mini sage bundles that I have.

All of it
