It’s June! It’s a perfect time to celebrate the Strawberry Moon and have your own safe moon virtual
party with friends or family. Or, have your own soulful moon bath. Here are some ways to drench yourself in the Strawberry Full Pink Moon that will be up in the night sky on June 5th.
Strawberries-the red delicious fruit that grows wild in the fields, or maybe you have them in pots, or in your garden, are so juicy and ripe this time of year. I love using strawberries in fresh salads, drinks, and desserts. I think that strawberries have a lot of possibilities. Here are a few recipes that I love to create with strawberries.
This is my favorite Betty Crocker recipe. The classic recipe from Bisquick/Betty Crocker is delicious. I usually follow the recipe right on the box and also use their Heart Healthy Bisquick mix. You can substitute with Stevia or Honey for the sweetness.
|1 quart||Strawberries (Sliced)|
|2 ⅓ cups||Original Bisquick™ Mix|
|3 tablespoons||Sugar, honey or Stevia|
|3 tablespoons||Butter (Melted)|
|½ cup||Heavy Whipping Cream/Canned Whipped Cream|
Heat oven to 425°F. In large bowl, mix strawberries and 1/4 cup sugar; set aside.
In medium bowl, stir Bisquick™ mix, milk, 3 tablespoons sugar and the butter until soft dough forms. On ungreased cookie sheet, drop dough by 6 spoonfuls. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, in small bowl, beat whipping cream with electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form. Split warm shortcakes; fill and top with strawberries and whipped cream, or you can use canned whipped cream.
Strawberry Fizzy Drink
1 can of seltzer-flavored or unflavored-chilled
Fresh strawberries -sliced
Pour a nice cool glass of seltzer. Add your lemon doTERRA essential oil to the seltzer. Gently stir. Then, add your fresh strawberries. Sip and enjoy.
Strawberry Full Moon
Look up at the night sky and you should see the moon every so gracefully becoming full on June 5th then becoming the complete New Moon on June 21st. It’s a great time to set your intentions for goals and what you would like to accomplish from moon phase to phase.
The strawberry moon was named for the time of the year that the strawberries were ripe and ready to be picked in the fields.
Gather your crystals for moon bathing. The glow and energy of the moon are perfect to soak your crystals in. It just creates that positive vibe that I love. I love to do that. Or, soak yourself in a nice warm bath surrounding yourself with your crystals and candles.
clear quartz: clarity
amethyst: intuition and balance
malachite: nature and connection
As you know I am always an advocate for beeswax candles. More importantly, out of all that I have recommended, the most important is mindset. Go into your gathering and your moon bath as a treat for yourself. Think positive. Think rejuvenation! So, let’s talk about that bath…
Strawberry Moon Bath
Inside~Intimate and Personal
Now, it’s time to soak it all in! Ahhhh…Welcome, June! Welcome Strawberry Full Moon. Welcome positive vibes. Welcome Summer Solstice. Follow these easy steps and add these doTERRA essential oils to make a nice, soothing bath or shower to soak your cares away.
Steps to Make A Strawberry Moon Bath
1. Clean your bath or tub (it’s part of the process)
2. Draw yourself a nice bath. Make the water temperature just right for you.
3. Add your doTERRA essential oils…
1 drop lavender- calm restless mind and allows you to relax
1 drop bergamot-balances blood sugar and cholesterol
1 drop chamomile-calms anxiety
4. I like Epsom salts for exfoliation. Use about 1/4 cup
I don’t have a bath, but I have a shower and use my oils right on the river rock in my shower. You can even use a beach rock and drop the oils on the stone and place the stone in your shower for a natural diffuser.
5. Set your crystals-if you’re in the bathtub you can even add candles! (lucky) 😉
6. Have a strawberry fizzy drink and enjoy your personal spa!
7. Don’t forget to set your intentions. Make those goals and celebrate what you have accomplished!
Outside~Have A Strawberry Moon Party
You can bath outside, just add some clothes for that chilly night. A moon bathing outside is just finding a cozy spot and soaking in the moonlight. That’s it. Set out a blanket, light a fire, lay out your crystals, have some friends to gather virtually, or social distance safely and soak up the moon. You can go solo too. Work with your gut.
