If you’re feeling a little stressed out this season, you’re not alone. Months of worrying about Covid and watching the nightly news have taken their toll on many of us. And now that winter is around the corner, it’s the perfect time to upgrade our self-care routines so we can face the (shorter) days with renewed hope and optimism. And Pink Moon, a woman-created, woman-run wellness company, has products to help!
My introduction to Pink Moon was through their Clair de Lune candle, which I’ve been burning on my desk every morning for the past several weeks. Warm, spicy, and floral, the scent is comforting without being overpowering — perfect for a fall morning. Then they sent me their Drops of Sunshine essential oil blend, which I loved even more than the candle!
I went to their website to see what other wonders were to be discovered, and was immediately intrigued by their gua sha facial tool and Lunar Drops oil — they’re next on my list to try. Want to feel even better about indulging in a little retail therapy? Pink Moon donates a portion of their profits to charities including UNICEF.

Why we like it:
- Made with naturally immune-boosting and antibacterial oils
- Bright citrus essential oils lift your mood
This blend of orange, mandarin red, lavender, rosemary, and cedarwood essential oils is the perfect pick-me-up for dark winter days when you could use a little extra sunshine in your life. Add a few drops to an essential oil diffuser, sprinkle it lightly in your bath or shower and let it steam up, or just take a whiff directly from the bottle, and your mood will instantly lift. You can also add it to a mixture of white vinegar and water to make an uplifting, all-natural cleaning solution.
Why we like it:
- Notes of jasmine and pink peppercorn are a perfect mix of sweet and spicy
- The cooled wax can be used as a moisturizer for dry patches
When the sun sets early in the winter months, lighting a candle is one of the best ways to feel cozy and raise your spirits. And this one, with its comforting, warm notes of jasmine, bergamot, and pink peppercorn, is absolutely delicious! Sweet, spicy, and not overpowering, it also doubles as a body oil — really! Just rub the cooled wax into elbows, knees, or other dry areas. Made with ethically sourced coconut and apricot wax, it burns clean and won’t make the room smoky. One candle burns for 40-45 hours.
A happy customer wrote, “This is composed of a well balanced blend of floral and citrus. Its is not overpowering like some candles. I can’t get tired of this one. Makes my space feel fresh and uplifted.”
Why we like it:
- Encourages lymphatic drainage (goodbye, puffy eyes) and helps ease headaches (even migraines!)
- Eases tension and promotes healthy blood flow
Never heard of a gua sha tool? Me neither, until I read about this one from Pink Moon. Made from rose quartz, which has long been hailed for its healing properties, the smooth edges of this heart-shaped stone are meant to be massaged over your face to boost circulation and encourage lymphatic drainage (the culprit behind puffy eyes and bloating). Used as part of Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years, gua sha tools can help tighten saggy jowls, as well as release headache-causing tension — some migraine-sufferers swear by them! It comes in a carrying pouch, with instructions are included.
A reviewer on the Pink Moon site wrote, “This tool is very light and the rose quartz is beautiful … I had never tried it before and can honestly say I not only felt so relaxed after, but my face was significantly less puffy. Highly recommend!”
Why we like it:
- Soothes inflammation and irritation
- Suitable for all skin types
Using the gua sha tool is easier with a little oil, and this one is specially crafted to complement the Pink Moon gua sha stone. Made from organic, antioxidant-rich sunflower and moringa oil, it’s non-comedogenic and works on all skin types, soothing inflammation and smoothing your skin’s texture. The gua sha stone glides easily over your skin with just a few drops of this oil — which is made in small batches by the creator of Pink Moon herself, Lin Chen. (It’s certified cruelty free, as well!) Get the oil and the stone together in the Over the Moon Duo (Buy on Pink Moon, $75).
One satisfied buyer raved, “I love the way my skin absorbs the oil and feels dewy for hours after application with gua sha tool. I’ve received compliments on my glow after my morning routine as well!”
