What is sacred skincare?
The use of crystals in healing and meditation has become so mainstream recently (at least on my Insta feed) that they have finally showed up in some of my favourite beauty products!
But using crystals isn’t just a fad – it’s an ancient practice that has been used throughout time. The ancient Egyptians used lapis in jewellery and malachite to produce makeup – both of which were believed to have healing properties. Sacred skincare will make you shine with beauty outside and heal you deep within.
So if you’re still wondering what the big deal is, here’s my take on it.
From Alternative Healing to Beauty
From facial oils and bath soaks to face masks, there are some amazing beauty brands out there that have worked crystals into their formulas – whether they’re ground up, placed into the bottle in raw form, or simply used to ‘charge’ a product with their energy. Whatever crystals touch, they amplify.
With their healing, calming and detoxifying properties, it's not a stretch to see how they have worked their way into beauty products. For example, Alyssum Alchemy’s Rose Radiance Mist is infused with rose quartz, and the Siren Song Bath Soak with aquamarine and pearl.
Rose quartz is the ultimate stone of love. It emits vibrations of unconditional love, joy, beauty, and healing, and helps to banish fear, resentment, anger, and jealousy. Prized in the ancient world for its powers of physical beautification, facial masks of rose quartz have been recovered from Egyptian tombs.
Aquamarine evokes the purity of crystalline waters, and the relaxation of the sea. It is calming, soothing, and cleansing – and inspires truth, trust and letting go. It protects all who travel by, over, or near water, and opens the channels of clear and heartfelt communication. Aquamarine emits a gentle and compassionate energy, promoting moderation and responsibility for ones' actions. It also inspires judgmental people to be more tolerant, and helps those overwhelmed by responsibility to find order.
Malachite is the deep healing green of nature, so it’s all about facilitating transformation, and assisting you in changing situations. It heals on both physical and emotional levels, drawing out impurities and stimulating the life force throughout the aura and body.
I bundled my favourite sacred items into a kit for Christmas. Along with a detox tea, body scrub and Shemana body oil, The Sacred Kit includes the Alyssum Alchemy Siren Song Bath Soak and Sacred Space Mist. The bath soak creates a perfectly luxurious bathing ritual with the purifying benefits of Australian salts, kelp and pink clay. The mist activates your Crown and Third Eye chakras to calm an active mind. Perfect for meditation, yoga or space cleansing.
These sacred luxury products are designed to stir your soul and help you to feel deeply connected to your own spirit and to the cycles of the earth and the moon. Each of these highly vibrational elixirs supports you physically, emotionally and energetically. They are beautiful reminders to be mindful and to live consciously.
