    summer solstice rituals

    A solstice is a time for celebration. The summer solstice is the longest day of the year and the shortest night. Having rituals honors occasion and in this case it honors the new season and the changes that come with that. We suggest honoring the Sun God in a few simple ways. An of course we have things you can buy for each idea but you can easily find or make your own items. 


    Do you need to dress up for solstice? Of course not! But why not have fun with the occasion and make it memorable for you and those you celebrate with. This time of year there is an abundance of flowers. You might notice lots of weddings too. The sunlight allows these flowers to grow and we like to honor that process with a floral crown or headpiece. Perfect for that beach-y or forest-y wedding and perfect for your solstice celebration. $59, shop here.  Make your own a la Lauren Conrad, read here


    Writing down your intentions is always good practice. The changing of the seasons is a great time to set new goals or intentions and writing them down helps to solidify them. We also like to write down what we want to change or get rid of and then burn it! Yes, throw those pages in the backyard bonfire and say goodbye to old bad habits. Aum Journal $38, shop here. DIY- grab any old paper you have, write down your thoughts and burn or manifest.


    basil and orange bath oil

    We talk about essential oils a lot at FaithHaus. They have such a deep history in spirituality and religion. Long used in rituals and this blend is perfect for a solstice bath. Basil oils and nectarine (orange) oils are all associated with the summer heat. Draw a bath and add a few drops of this luxe oil and set intentions for an uplifting and productive summer. Bath oil $20, shop here. DIY- our go-to make of all things essential oil at Fresh-Picked Beauty, see here.

    We are obsessed (underscore and exclamation) with the incense cones from Age of Earth. Mystical blends that take you to another place- we love these for meditation and any ritual that calls for a beautiful blend of vetiver and holy basil. Buy here, $14  DIY- yes you can make your own incense cones! Find out how here
