Soap Free Face Routine

Here’s a million dollar question : How do your wash your face… with NO soap?

Faced with skin stripping soaps and a pressing question, Triiinity was determined to solve the riddle. We already opted for mild soaps and natural/well sourced soaps but even those can be a overly stripping of the natural oils in delicate face skin. They were even beginning to cause Triiini small dry patches and we couldn’t have that. So thus began the journey to find a gentler, more natural face washing method. After lengthy research and experimentation, we came to a combination and established a face routine that I plan to keep for a while to come.

Tools Needed:

Bentonite Clay

Honey

Apple Cider Vinegar

Face Pads/ Cotton pads

Natural oil

 

What to do?

Step 1: Bring bentonite clay and honey into a viscous paste like mixture {you may use a bowl or just mix it in your hand. For this I like to use Garner’s Garden Bentonite Clay. More honey than bentonite clay will give you the best ratio of ingredients to allow for proper spreading}

Step 2: Open your facial pores using a hot towel

Step 3: Spread mixture all over your face, massaging as you spread & allow it to sit {2 to 5 minutes is more than sufficient, though if you decide to let it sit longer it won’t hurt}

Step 4: Rinse with warm water until face is fully free of substance.

Step 5: Use cotton face pad to apply apple cider vinegar to your face {this step closes your pores while adding the skin benefits of acv}

Step 6: Finish by applying a dime sized amount of natural oil to your face. {I use a homemade mixture of coconut oil, olive oil, & rosemary} . Let the oil soak in before applying any makeup.

Honey, Bentonite Clay, & ACV are 100% natural ingredients with natural detoxifying effects and amazing skin benefits! Together they make the perfect facial cleanser. Keeping the skin at the proper oil balance {especially using oils that boasts their own skin benefits} aids in anti aging effects, so once youve applied your natural oil…you’re unstoppable!

In the past few months of doing this routine, I have seen such an increase in the quality & lusterous smoothness of my skin. It’s always glowing & it feels like I’ve snapped every pore into prime position! Now I might look like a monster every morning when I was my face, but the end result is well worth it.

My Body My Choice

IMG_20160405_111239

Nudity empowers some. Modesty empowers some. Different things empower different women & it’s not your place to tell them which one it is. This is not just a cool saying people, it’s the TRUTH. Every women {and man} is in charge of their own body and it is up each person to do with it as they wish. It sickens me that people would go out of their way to report images they dont have to see, judge when they could just let be.

Rape culture tells us we have control over other peoples bodies. Rape culture tells us the less clothes someone is wearing, the less deserving of respect, but I’m here to show you that is not true. We are all deserving of bodily autonomy & we do not deserve to be shamed or suffer unjust penalty because of the choices we make.

Rape is not the penalty for nudity. Shame is not the penalty for exposed skin. It is my right, & her right, & his right to cover or expose my body as I choose. To shave or not shave. To wear makeup or not wear make up. To have sex or not have sex. To identify as whatever sexual orientation or gender I please. Or anything else you may not agree with. It is not your right to make anyone put on clothes, take them off, or make someone do anything they do not want to do. Nor is it in your control. When it comes to the body of another, your assumptions means nothing. Every being is worthy of respect. You dont have to understand or identify. But you must respect.

Campaign Consent | Sexual Assault Awareness

IMG_20160401_145826

It’s April 1st & the first day of #SexualAssaultAwareness month. Free Spiiirit is activating our power in feminist activism to take a stand against the patriarchy, rape culture, & sexual assault. Sexual acts of violence and the attitudes leading to them are all too often trivialized & embraced as a normal part of our culture, but no more! We have created ●Campaign Consent● because consent is a necessity. Consent is a respect that must be given at all times. If we hope to erradicate the laissez faire attitude toward #sexualassault, our culture must be educated of this vital notion.

We aim to use ●Campaign Consent● as a vehicle for change, by spreading awareness throughout the streets of Los Angeles & all over social media about the importance of consent & ending rape culture. Join Triiinity Tafari, myself & the Free Spiiirit Tribe  in our mission to spread awareness about this important issue! Tag #CampaignConsent or email freespiiirit3@gmail.com to share your stories, facts or photos of you smashing the patriarchy! We will repost the lovely spiiirits that share on our Instagram!

It’s the first new moon of the year & a great time to set 2016 goals & intentions. The Capricorn New Moon focuses our attention on our ambitions. This moon’s conjunction to Pluto & Uranus empowers us to overcome self doubt, stick to our agenda, & take on meaningful challenges in our lives. Use this energy to reaffirm any new years resolutions, goals, or plans you may have set. This moon’s energy will help you climb your ladder to success

.New Moon • Death|Transfiguration.

20160109_231526

Wearing my African bloodstone yoni egg as I embrace the energy of the new moon. She assists me, amplifying my power & establishing my vision as I set my intentions. The first new moon of the year is a powerful time for planting the seeds I desire to grow. I asked Spirit what energy I need to embrace to manifest the intentions I’ve set & this is the card I received. This card represents the end of things as previously known. Symbolizing death of the old self to pave the way for regeneration & enlightenment, it allows removal of fears by confrontation. It connotes change through transfiguration and the realization of new opportunities. There are some things that I’d been holding on to in the recesses of my mind, that the retrograde has returned to conscious thought. It can be frustrating coming face to face with emotions you’d only hoped you’d done away with for good. But it’s all a part of healing. And repressed is not the same thing as released. Dead leaves will only feed to no avail until the whole plant dies. And I’m trying to grow a garden. So tonight my job is to let go. I release what is dead. I die to be reborn. I trust the Universe to bring me the highest good. And it shall.

How are you embracing the Capricorn New Moon energy? What do you feel you need to do to manifest your intentions in the new year?

Happy New Year Spiiirits!

Can you believe its 2016?

Yesterday I pulled my first card of the new year and I’d love to share it with you guys. I have decided that I will pull a card a day, every day this year, come hell or high water. I find it to be a great way to practice my divination and get more & more in touch with my cards. I will attempt to share them with you all every day as well (via instagram or here on zee blog) but I’m asking in advance that you all bear with me. I will share as often as I can. In keeping with my new daily tarot plans, I also pulled a card for today. I will share both.

1|1|16 .{The Hot Seat}.

Hot Seat

Yesterday I asked my deck about the energy of my 2016 & what Spirit wanted to communicate to be about the year. The answer? THE HOT SEAT. Synonymous with the {Emperor} card in the traditional tarot. This card bears the number 4 signifying the deeper self rooted in firm foundations & convictions, balance & the four pillars of the Universe. This card signifies power & great responsibility, for the “Hot Seat” is the seat of the master of the Universe. Any persons prepared to take this seat has achieved adequate work and is ready for the continued work & responsibility that awaits them. This card indicates a position of authority that has been bestowed that one must make themselves equal to. Great urgency is required as decisions must be made that require inner convictions and powers of leadership. This card foretells a way through to the realization of ambitions. Meditate on the correct channeling of energy through the higher will, transforming & blending the psyche.

1|2|2016 .{Island of Jewels}.

Island of Jewels

Today, I simply asked for the guidance in relation to the energy of the day. I used my crystal wand as a pendulum to amplify my natural magick in choosing a card. Spirit’s choice today? ISLAND OF JEWELS. Synonymous with the {Star} card in traditional tarot. This card bears the number •{17}• which combines the numbers •{1}• & •{7}• together to signify the inner light of spiritual attainment through an exalted path of occultism. The Island of Jewels is perceived as being outside of the influence of time. It represents the visualization of the ideal self. Comprised of all the celestial forces that influence the world, it is understood as being not bound to the world but above it as a pure transmitter & receiver of the celestial influences.

This is a highly auspicious card as it suggest the realization of hopes & aspirations achieved through the practice of visualization & opening of the inner spiritual eye.

Connoting inspiration, insight, & spiritual breakthrough, this card is one of optimism & success. Maintain faith in your higher self. This faith in the deepest aspirations of your heart and soul shall aid you in finding expression for these desires in this world that lay the foundations for realization & illumination in the next. Meditate on the limitless possibilities of the Spirit.

——————–

I am glad to have received such auspicious messages from Spiiirit at the dawn of this new year. I am inspired & prepared to tap in and take hold of all the cosmos has to offer me this year!

Let me know if any of these cards resonate with you and the energy surrounding you this year!

Soul Cleanse: Spiritual Baths

.{Spiritual Baths}.

image

Baths have long been revered for their sacred healing properties. Spiritual Baths are an ancient method of spiritual cleansing. These magical baths cleanse our auras & aid us in purging all the mental and spiritual dirt we may retain.

Spiritual baths are a powerful mystical remedy that utilizes the purfying power of steam along with herbs, essences, & spices to heal, restore, & rejuvenate us inside and out. While normal baths are taken to cleanse our bodies, these baths are taken with the specfic intention of removing unwanted energies & ridding oneself of negative vibrations. The purifying power of a spiritual bath an restore harmony & balance to your life.

A good spiritual bath may be the perfect way to end this year & bring in 2016 with a soul that’s fresh, clean, & ready for a new start.

There are many types of spiritual baths. My favorite {and one of the simplest to perform} is the vinegar bath.

image

 

 

 

 

Vinegar has long been used has an agent of protection & exorcism. It banishes evil, misfortune, negativity, illness, & even pesky germs. It’s pH balancing properties provide natural toning and conditioning to skin and hair. Adding it to your bath will provide body & soul benefits.

Step 1

Prepare Your Station.

Prepare any ingredients you will be using for your bath {in this case, it’s just vinegar, but other times it could be a combo of herbs, oils, etc.} If using herbs you will need to either pre-soak the herbs in hot water or prepare a bath tea bag for the herbs to sit contained in the tub, while the water takes on herbal essence.

Step 2

Cleanse Your Body.

Before partaking in any type of spiritual bath, you must first ensure that your temple is clean. Take a normal shower or bath previous to any spiritual bathing to rid yourself of any physical dirt.

Step 3

Prepare Your Bath.

Fill your tub with warm water. Add your ingredients. If using pre-soaked herbs strain your mixture to pour in the herb infused water. If using herbs in a bath tea bag/container, add these herbs now and let them soak for about 10 minutes before you get in. {If pre-soaked, you don’t have to wait any}. In the case of the vinegar bath, simply add 7 to 9 caps of vinegar to warm steamy bath water. Feel free to light candles or do anything else you’d like to set the ambiance for healing.

Step 4
Take your bath. Hop in and enjoy the warm water and steam filled with healing elements surrounding you. As you indulge in this peaceful experience, keep your intention stayed the spiritual cleansing/healing you seek. Trust the process to accomplish its purpose. Do not use soap or any additives in this bath. You may perform the motions of washing, using the infused bath water all while holding the intent in your heart that you are cleansing your soul. Remain in the bath for at least 15 minutes for maximum benefit.

Step 5

Air Dry.

Once you have exited the tub, Do Not dry with a towel. You may drape a robe around you or some other comfortable clothing if you wish, but allow your body to dry naturally.

Step 6

Enjoy & Let Simmer

Enjoy the soul lifting effects of your bath. It is best to wait 12 to 24 hours before your next bath.

Again vinegar baths are my favorite, as they are easy & effective. But I looovvveee herbal magical baths for spirit as well. Depending on the combination of herbs there is so much variant magical soul work that can be accomplished with a spiritual bath.

If you’ve never tried a spiritual bath, start with the vinegar one & tell me what you think!

Happy Bathing & Happy New Year!

Liquid Gold & Yoni Power : Goddess Body Yoni Oil Review

{Yoni: Sanskrit for vagina or womb. It is a sacred space & the source of all life }

image.png

Power to the Pussy! All Hail to the V!

The Yoni is both sacred & divine and should be treated as such for maximum health & joy. This power-packed organ is highly resilient, but also sensitive, and must be properly cared for to flourish at its full capacity.

I am very careful what I allow on or in my Yoni. I eat healthily, I do not wear tampons, I wear yoni eggs for spiritual & physical yoni maintenance, and I’m sure to do my kegals to keep my yoni operating in its proper perfection.

As stringent as I am a about what goes near my sacred space, you know that any product I use down there must be to a high standard. And Goddess Body Yoni Oil is so quality it not only meets but, dare I say, exceeds this standard.

{Yoni Oil: A combination of 100% natural herbs & oils that provide preventative maintenance & ultimate feminine healing}

image

Benefits:

Anti microbial
Restores balance to feminine pH
Strengthens vaginal muscles
Regulates feminine cycles
Increases natural lubrication
Prevents excess of bacteria & rids infection

Usage: This oil can be used externally or internally for daily maintenance & minor infections.

-daily maintenance- using your fingers, apply 1/2 – 1 teaspoon internally via the vaginal opening as well as on the vulva. Apply right after your bath or shower, or as needed.
-minor infections- apply internally to the vaginal opening as well as externally on the vulva 2-3 times a day until the infection no longer persists. A sterile syringe or dropped may be used.

It also makes a great lubricant & massage oil.

I have been using this product for the past year now and I swear by it. Not only does it smell beyond delicious, but it does all it boasts! I have a very regulated menstrual cycle that operates like clockwork. I also used to have much more painful periods. Thanks to this liquid gold, now my menstrual cycle is practically painless. My vaginal walls are strong & tight. Natural lubrication is no problem, as she is the juiciest of fruit. Goddess Body’s Yoni Oil definitely amplifies my divine feminine essence by keeping my yoni running in exquisite perfection.

P.S. With its perfect consistency and anti microbial properties, I also find use for yoni oil as a sealant on my facial skin and in small quantities mixed into a homemade spray for my scalp. This stuff is amazing!
