Crystals

Crystals are minerals formed underground from three-dimensional repeating patterns of atoms. A crystal's appearance depends upon the natural characteristics of its type and the conditions in which it grows. Some take on strange shapes, some are very small and others grow very large, developing over thousands of years.


Different crystals have different energies and properties, and between them can affect mental, physical, spiritual and emotional aspects of ourselves. Simply holding the right crystal at the right time can bring about a change in our attitude and well-being.


The right crystal can affect the energy of an environment, and the energy it holds can influence you whether you simply hold it in your hand or place it by your bed or on the mantelpiece.


You should always cleanse any new crystals you get to clear away any old or negative energy and start afresh. If you use them for healing or meditation or guidance, cleanse before and after. Use your intuition to choose a cleansing method – whatever feels right for you and the crystal you want to cleanse.


HOW TO CLEANSE YOUR CRYSTALS:


  • Moonlight: Simply leave your crystals overnight outside under the moonlight, preferably a full moon. This is the safest method and suitable for all crystals and crystal jewellery.

  • Other crystals: Some crystals are good at cleansing other crystals. Choose amethyst, clear quartz, carnelian or selenite crystals that have been cleansed and are bigger than the crystal you want cleansed. Crystal geodes or clusters are great for this.

  • Earth cleansing: Bury your crystals in the earth (either outside or in a pot plant). Leave for two or three days and then uncover.

  • Smudge: You can smudge crystals using Sage or Palo Wood, simply hold it while you smudge around all sides of the crystal. 

  • Smokeless cleanse: For a smokeless cleanse, try our essential oil cleansing mist range, infused with the properties of Moonstone crystals, Sage or Palo Santo.

Essential oil blends

The sense of smell is a tool that can trigger powerful mental, and emotional responses.


Essential oils are used in many wonderful ways and are becoming increasing popular around the world including their use, not only in alternative medicine but also in common medicine practice, there is no turning a blind eye to the incredible properties displayed by essential oils. Some essential oils induce uplifting or invigorating effects, while others are more calming.


Essential oils are absorbed via the smell receptors, which have a direct link to the limbic system. This system is part of the brain that supports a variety of functions, including smell, emotions, behaviour, and memory. For this reason, essential oils have an especially powerful effect when used for topical and aromatic application.


We use only the very best essential oils in our products to ensure purest quality and benefits.


Each essential oil blend comes with its own unique product card which will have directions and cautions on how to use. Some examples on how to get the best results from your blends are as follows.


USING ESSENTIAL OIL BLENDS:


  • Mists: Spritz blends around your body or surroundings. Inhale, and allow essential oils to be absorbed by your senses giving instant uplifting, calming or inspired emotion.

  • Rollers: Apply topically to the base of the neck, on temples, wrists and bottoms of feet for slow release of aromatic properties. Or for a quick effective way to experience the oils, roll in the palm of your hand, cup together and inhale.

CANDLES

Each of our beautiful crystal infused candles are hand-poured, in-house and customised with your choice of crystal and scent. To ensure you receive the most burn time, you will need to give your candle a little extra care by following the instructions below.

CARING FOR YOUR CANDLE:

  • When you first burn your candle, you can either remove the crystals or keep them in. Please note, leaving the crystals in may result in potentially covering the wick and putting it out. If you monitor the burning candle every so often with the crystals in place, making sure they don't move towards the wick.

  • When burning your candle for the first time, allow the wax to melt until it reaches the edges of your vessel before extinguishing. This will create a candle memory and a clean and even burn in the future.

  • Never leave your candle burning longer than 3 hours at a time. Once the wax reaches half way down your vessel, carefully monitor the burn time and extinguish the flame after 1 hour.

  • After use when the wax has cooled and set, trim your wick to 5mm again before relighting to avoid wick 'mushrooming'.

  • Always trim your wick to 5mm before lighting your candle to ensure you receive the maximum burn time.

  • Discontinue use when the wax reaches 10mm-15mm from the bottom of your vessel.

  • When you have finished burning your candle, simply wash out any leftover wax with hot water and detergent.


Cleansing

CLEANSING TOOLS:


  • Palo Santo Wood: Sweet, sugary, intoxicating scent, works quickly to increases relaxation and bring about feelings of positivity in any space.

  • Sage Wand: Assists in purification, cleansing the emotional body of negative thoughts, anxiety, anger or feelings of unworthiness.

  • White Sage Incense:  Used to bless, cleanse and heal the person or object being smudged. Also used to 'wash off' the outside world.

  • Selenite: Enhances the properties of other stones, dispels negative energy and blocks, making it the perfect protection stone.

  • Black Tourmaline: Assists in purification, cleansing the emotional body of negative thoughts, anxiety, anger or feelings of unworthiness.

HOW TO SMUDGE:


Think about why you are smudging, the intention and what you want to achieve. Holding that intention, light the sage or palo santo and gently blow it out to allow the stick to smoulder.


Crystals: Hold the crystal amongst the smoke repeating a mantra with an intention to cleanse and replenish energies.


People: swirl the smudge stick gently around the person, from head to toe. This will cleanse their aura.


Spaces: open the windows and walk through the area with the smudge stick, allowing the smoke to get into all the corners and cupboards.


When you are finished, place the smouldering smudge stick in sand or dirt to put out completely.
