10 Amazing Crystal Infused Beauty Products

By Diane Small

Crystals are making waves in the world of skincare. In ancient medicine they were used for their anti-ageing properties – in fact, the Chinese have been using jade rollers for centuries to smooth out wrinkles. But it’s only recently that crystals have moved from holistic medicine to high street shops.

Devotees claim that crystals and gemstones emit vibrations that can have an energising and healing effect on the skin. But the real question is: which stone is best for you? Here’s a quick look at the basics of what’s behind gemstones in beauty products:

Garnet: This is said to be a crystal of passion, sensuality, beauty and wisdom. It gives you the feeling that you can have it all.

Rose Quartz: A symbol of love, rose quartz is thought to be a healing stone that can reduce inflammation and cure headaches.

Sapphire: This is said to boost self confidence and understanding, and helps heal diseases of the throat and lungs.

Amethyst: This wonder crystal has the power to clean blood vessels, regenerate cells and increase the body’s healing ability, making it a great ingredient for skincare products.

Black Tourmaline: A stone with psychic energy, this is said to promote spiritual protection and to align the energy centres of the body.

Malachite Extract: Rich in copper, this is a great anti-oxidizing stone and is perfect for after-sun care.

Now that you have the lowdown on the stones, see which Crystal Infused Beauty Products could benefit you most.

I just love these perfumes: they’re made from 100% natural essential oils, all infused with flower and gem essences. Look closely and you’ll see quartz crystals catching the sunlight and twinkling!

I Love My Spirit, which is softly sweet and contains camellia oil, chamomile, bergamotnag champa, quartz chips, gem and flower essences.

Gem: Varies, but Love My Spirit contains Rose Quartz chips

The Founder has a degree in Geological Engineering and is a Shamanic Reiki Practitioner who is passionate about creating beauty products from the power of nature. One of my favourite products is their ‘Gem Juice, which uses the medicinal properties of plants and and increases their potency by combining them with colour-coded gemstones in the hue of each plant to create a vibrational link between mineral & botanical worlds. Gem Juices also contain small crystals which are energetically cleansed and ready to be programmed with your unique intentions. Simply hold the bottle in your hands and let your desires be known! When you are done with the hydrosol spray, remove the crystals from the bottle and keep them for continued intentional living.

    Interesting and unique article, but I just wanted to point out an error in the first product description. Whey protein is listed as a plant-based ingredient, but it’s actually a bi-product of cow’s milk. A small thing, but thought I would point it out to the author in case she wants to amend. Loving your magazine!
