Lunar Beauty Rituals: Caring For Your Body Using the Cycles of the Moon
Awaken Your Inner Goddess ....
We all know that the Moon affects our mood and emotions, but did you know that the Moon also heavily influences our hair, nails and skin as well?
Our bodies are made up of mostly water and just like the Moon governs the tides of the ocean, the Moon can also govern the tides of our own bodies. The Moon has an emotional and spiritual effect on us by illuminating things, helping us to release things and helping us to manifest things, but the Moon also plays a role on a physical level and governs the cycles of cell growth and repair.Many farmers also use the cycles of the Moon to plant and harvest crops, and in many ways our hair, skin and nails work in the same way
After the New Moon (Waxing Moon) It has been found that when you cut your hair or nails after the New Moon, which is during the waxing phase, they will grow back thicker, longer and healthier.
This means that if you are getting a haircut and want your hair to grow faster, choose a date just after the New Moon.
This my friends does work and is tried and tested , I was also told this in Oregon at a herbal apothecary in the Witches Village. I did get a trim and and boy! Did my hair grow...
After the Full Moon (Waning Moon)
When the Moon is waning, which happens just after the Full Moon, it is the perfect time to wax, shave, pluck and exfoliate your skin.
When you shave, cut or wax your hair when the Moon is waning, the growth is said to be much slower and will even come back finer.
Just after the Full Moon is also a great time to start a detox or to do any type of cleansing when it comes to the body
I just want to point out that the mind is a powerful thing and sometimes it sees what it wants to see, so I will admit there could be some bias in my results but I do feel that it worked!
