Kylie likes them life-sized, Miranda Kerr uses them to attract her boyfriends ... Even Lena Dunham's dry wit + scathing sarcasm has found a place for a tumble stone or two. And while celebrities definitely weren't the first people to start harping on about the unique properties of healing stones (hey ancestors), crystals are definitely in vogue and here to stay.
WHAT IS A CRYSTAL?
Okay Science Lesson 101, crystals are solids formed with a repeating crystalline molecular pattern. Due to the unique arrangements of atoms within these crystal's structures, as well as where they are geographically, the conditions they grew in + how they were harvested, crystals carry a unique energetic vibration.
Crystals also have the ability to absorb and transmit light (the highest universal energy known. They draw in this light energy, reflect it among their internal crystalline structure, and transmit it outwards. As the upmost universal energy, this light is the most healing lifeforce.
SO WHY CRYSTALS + SKINCARE?
The ability that crystals have to send + receive energy is a pretty potent force which can be harnessed for physical + metaphysical healing. And because we're obsessed with all things skin wellness, we've been inspired to infuse this super high-vibe healing into our plant powered products.
We've set a different crystal beauty at the heart of each of the SKINTENTION ranges, and chosen botanical waters that best compliment their individual healing properties.
So without further a do, let's meet the crystalline trio:-
THE QUEEN OF THE GLOW - ROSE QUARTZ
The heart of the GLOW collection, Rose Quartz is the ultimate feel-good stone. Renowned for it's ability raise love vibrations + encourage self-care + kindness, we couldn't not include this rosey beauty in our line-up.
THE BAD VIBE SLAYER - SMOKEY QUARTZ
Next is the the stone of cleansing, rebalancing + getting rid of all things negative, otherwise known as Smokey Quartz. This sooty coloured stone at the heart of the BALANCE collection is the ultimate aid in detoxification for us because it's super-grounding.
