Happy healthy Halloween


Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

Halloween is an annual celebration in many countries on the 31st of October. It is a night of costume-wearing, pumpkin carving, trick or treating, and bonfires—a night of gatherings, family, and friends. And undeniably an evening where we celebrate everything light while acknowledging the darkness. 

Wellness vs overindulgence

Everyone recognizes the ease of overindulging on this night. Mainly of the sugared variety! So what can be done to combat this and monitor your health and wellbeing? You could start by ensuring you have healthy snacks to beat those sugar cravings and a healthy meal to enjoy; this could sound like a party pooper attitude. However, it can be more delicious with the correct planning than filling up solely on candy and cakes.

Halloween can be an evening of spreading wellness to others too. Treats could include small novelty toys, joke gifts, or healthier treats instead of all the sugar-laden candy. Gather a group around a bonfire to enjoy each other’s company. Serve some healthy snacks and savour the time spent together.

Herbs for the home

During this time of spirits and ghosts, place herbs around your home to nurture a peaceful and calming atmosphere. Not to mention dispersing any negative energies. Lavender, Sage, and Rosemary work wonders for this.

Halloween crystals

Red Jasper is a powerful protection stone in both the physical and spiritual worlds. It has grounding energy connecting you to the earth and promoting positivity and courage. Red jasper works through the chakras bringing balance and stability and making it an ideal stone to carry on you at Halloween.

Selenite purifies its surrounding environment. Place a small piece in each corner of your room to create a safe, calming space. It also cleanses the mind of negativity and stabilizes emotions. Moreover, it will help remove energy blocks and allow the user to connect with their higher self.

Last but not least, we always have a piece of clear quartz with us at Halloween due to its ability to amplify positive energies. It is a soul cleanser that connects both the physical and spiritual worlds. Hence another ideal stone to carry on this magical, ethereal, and haunting night.
