The bath bombs are colorful and aromatic.

The large range of soaps look like slices of cake with colourful icing. Some of the common ingredients in many of them are organic coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil, lye, French pink clay and essential oils. They sound tasty but not recommended for internal use.

They do look delicious.

An extensive range of aromatic candles are available with every sign of the zodiac represented. I honed in on the Leo one, which said I was brave, passionate and dynamic. (I wish).

Himalayan salt lamps are decorative lights you can buy for your home. They are carved out of pink Himalayan salt and believed to have various health benefits. In fact, advocates of salt lamps claim they can clean the air in your home, soothe allergies, boost your mood and help you sleep.

They can brighten up your life and well being.

Crystals and quartz. Many different colours and qualities. There are little notes with many proclaiming their qualities. The crackle quartz is said to counteract negative energy and is useful for regaining positive emotions and energy.

There is a vast array of other feel-good items, such as incense sticks, neck pendants and many more.

Something for everyone here.

There are books available on titles such as "The Beginners guide to Tarot Cards", "Modern Mystic" and "The Moon Oracle."

A final quote from Roseanne. "Rasling Raw is a certified Australian Made & Owned, home-based business in Gembrook, Victoria. Products are hand made by me, paying attention to detail, to bring you a selection of soaps, hair and skincare that I'm sure you will love!"
