  • #PROTECTIONCRYSTALSWEEK {Guest edited by Heather and Timmi at @energymuse} A Selenite wand (pictured) is the ideal energy tool for all types of energy cleansing. Everyone needs one in their home. It is one of the the very few minerals that has the ability to quickly unblock stagnant energy and remove negative energy. Place one on each of your windowsills to protect your space and raise its vibration. Selenite crystals also greatly magnify the energy of anything that is placed upon them. Place your tumbled stones on top of them to clear their energy. 💎
Selenite is one of our must-have crystals—it’s one that we both wear each and everyday. It is a mineral that holds a very, very high vibration, working on many different energetic levels to cleanse, purify and clear your body of any negativity or energy blockages. Selenite crystals dispel all negative energy from the body and mind, bringing calming energies, deep peace and mental clarity.
Unknown to many, Selenite also promotes fertility as well as unlocks any creative blocks. It is excellent for healers, light workers and people in the public to wear, as they act as an energetic shield surrounding your aura. Some even believe that its' natural ability to cleanse, purify and create energy flow throughout the entire energy system will help to restructure and regenerate cells. It is often used in holistic medicine treatments for physical healing, including cancer treatment and tumor reduction. 💎
Wearing a selenite necklace also shields and protects you from lower energy frequencies, especially energy vampires, spirits or ghosts. Selenite is a form of liquid light that infuses your aura and spirit with white light when worn or held.

  • #PROTECTIONCRYSTALSWEEK {Guest edited by Heather and Timmi at @energymuse} Black Tourmaline is one the ultimate protection crystals. If you are looking to clear, cleanse and unlock any energy blockages in your home, place a piece of Black Tourmaline in each of the 4 corners of the room or at the 4 corners of your property. This creates a protective shield of energy to ensure that no negative and harmful energy permeates your space. The human body is constantly bombarded with positive and negative energies. When you come in contact with people everyday, you often pick up some of their energy. To maintain a balanced mind, body and spirit, you want to make sure that your energy is 100% your own, so knowing how to remove negative energy from your energy field is key. 💎

  • #PROTECTIONCRYSTALSWEEK {Guest edited by Heather and Timmi at @energymuse} One of the oldest stones on the planet, Shungite is a must-have for any crystal collection. All gemstones have healing qualities, but in the case of this super stone, the unique purifying and cleansing properties of shungite make it unlike any of the other protection crystals. Found only in Russia, shungite has been a source of healing since long before the discovery of fullerenes within the stone. The natural fullerenes within this carbon dense stone have the ability to reduce the concentration of free radicals. That's why we always recommend setting shungite protection properties on your desk, to shield against the free radicals cast off by your tech devices. It's also great to place shungite in a glass of water to create a healing elixir. The high-carbon content within shungite acts as a filter. Modern water filtration systems use active charcoal carbon for the same reason. In Karelia, Russia, where shungite is found, they've been using shungite in their water for centuries! 💎

  • #PROTECTIONCRYSTALSWEEK {guest edited by Heather and Timmi at @energymuse} Energy is your most precious human resource. Your energy makes you, you. Your physical energy, emotional energy, mental energy and spiritual energy all contribute to how you feel and show up to your life on a day to day basis. 
Your mind, body and spirit are constantly bombarded with positive and negative energies. Even when you do your best to maintain a positive mindset, you are still susceptible to the energies of others and your surroundings. When your co-worker or loved one is stressed, you may pick up that energy and take it on as your own. If you walk into a room where an argument just occurred, your energy field picks up the energetic residue left in the space. This is why it’s of utmost importance to prioritize protecting your energy.

When you feel safe, secure and energized on all levels, you just feel good. You are grounded, calm and able to make better decisions. Your performance at work sky rockets. Your relationships become easier. And your home feels like a safe, harmonious haven.

So what can you do to protect your energy? That’s where crystal energy comes into play. Throughout this week on the @ecobeautyeditor feed, you’ll learn what crystals are best for protection of your space and your energy.

7 Best Natural Body Scrubs

May 31, 2018
best natural body scrubs

Using an all-natural body scrub is about so much more than just getting skin that glows. As your body’s largest elimination organ, your skin — and more specifically its pores — needs to be cleaned properly so it can eliminate daily toxins more effectively.

Knowing that what we put on our skin goes within, it’s crucial to choose a natural product that is formulated by an ethical, reputable company. Synthetic scrubs are often laced with plastic micro-beads, which are not only detrimental to your health, but also the planet, as they get washed down the drain and cause all sorts of environmental issues.

Learn how to use essential oils SAFELY and for most benefit
Essential oils are potent and offer most benefit when used correctly. Did you know? Each oil possesses particular chemical make-up and the application is often specific to the particular oil. Therefore, it's important to understand how to best use an oil to suit your particular situation. Learn how to use pure essential oils safely, and for most benefit by subscribing to my essential oils education newsletter at left.

Here are some of the best natural body scrubs…

Koko Cacao and Blood Orange Coffee Scrub

Koko Cacao and Blood Orange Coffee Scrub is a blend designed to invigorate, energize and firm the body. The antioxidant-rich combination of cacao, fair-trade Arabica coffee and Vitamin E rejuvenates skin while citrus and coffee stimulate blood flow.

Organic cane sugar scrubs away dead cells, leaving the organic coconut and macadamia oil to hydrate and plump, minimising stretch marks and warding off further free-radical damage. Leave it on a minute or two (you’ll want to with the gorgeous aroma of blood orange and coffee!).

Chic Republic Detox

I’m a huge fan of activated charcoal for tummy upsets, and for whitening teeth. But did you know it’s also fabulous for the skin? Adding it to an all-natural body scrub makes a whole lot of sense.

Chic Republic Detox Body Scrub, with its sugar base (great for removing dead skin and blackheads while cleansing and polishing) have infused their scrub with activated coconut charcoal to absorb dirt from the pores, along with oils such as grapeseed, coconut and jojoba. It’s also formulated with aloe vera, shea butter and plant extracts, so your skin is left feeling deeply cleansed (and detoxed) and beautifully moisturised.

Eco by Sonya Driver Pink Himalayan Salt Scrub

I wouldn’t be able to talk about body scrubs without including the widely adored Eco by Sonya Driver’s Pink Himalayan Salt Scrub. A international multi-award winner, this organic natural body buffer is best used prior to showering.

Whip on the brand’s exfoliating glove for an even more intense scrub. With certified organic lemongrass and coconut oil, it leaves your skin feeling intensely hydrated (plus the smell is completely yummy). This Aussie-made beauty essential won gold in the Janey Loves PLATINUM AWARDS 2016 and was awarded highly commended in the Natural Health International Beauty Awards (2016).

Honor Coffee Body Scrub

I don’t know about you, but anything natural to help me wake up in the morning is a good thing! It’s just one of the reasons I love Honour Body Scrub‘s Cucumber and Mint Organic Coffee Scrub (coffee and mint in the same formulation – need I say more?!).

While the peppermint has a cooling effect, the organic, fair trade coffee helps to stimulate circulation, while cucumber is wonderful for improving skin elasticity and regeneration (cucumber is one of my favourite smoothie ingredients for that reason). This New Zealand-made scrub also includes organic shea butter, which is rich in vitamins A, E and F.

It also has essential fatty acids and nutrients for collagen production. Other beautifying and nourishing oils include apricot kernel, jojoba, and Vitamin E. The organic pink Himalayan salt stimulates circulation and soothe sore muscles.

Weleda Birch Body Scrub

Ah, Weleda, is there anything you don’t do well? Their Birch Body Scrub is a highly commended, natural beauty award winner for good reason. Infused with grapefruit and cypress, this is a scrub that helps to calm inflamed skin, all while stimulating circulation and encouraging cell renewal.

You won’t find synthetic anything in this all-natural beauty must-have. Dead skin is sloughed away using natural beeswax pearls, which also help to nourish and rebalance the skin. If you haven’t heard about birch before, it is said to remove toxins, while fostering the kind of glow we all hanker for. A favourite in my best natural body scrubs collection.

Buff Mama Sea Salt Body Scrub

A scrub for the mamas in the house! Buff Natural Bodycare has formulated a deeply moisturising scrub, with essentials oils of mandarin, lavender and frankincense, to uplift, soothe and comfort. What I also love is, this is a product that does double duty (when you’re a busy mama, this is a very good thing) as a bath soak.

It’s also safe to use from the second trimester and during breastfeeding. Ingredients: 100 percent natural and lovingly handmade with certified organic coconut oil, grapeseed oil, hand harvested sea salt and mandarin, lavender and Frankincense essential oils.

Wild Hill Botanicals Salish Seaweed Salt Scrub

I can’t help but go a little ga-ga when I see organic, wildcrafted and food-grade in the same sentence. The folks at Wild Hill Botanicals who run their artisanal distillery and apothecary on Vancouver Island, Canada, grow their own herbs that are used in their all-natural, vegan products.

They use only the freshest organic oils and house-made hydrosols. All products, including their Salish Seaweed Salt Scrub, are made in small batches—by hand—to ensure freshness and quality control. This divine scrub is formulated with a blend of Pacific sea salt, French green clay and wild harvested seaweeds from the Salish Sea to stimulate circulation, provide vitamins and minerals, while gently buffing away the old, dead skin. An organic medley of oils and shea butter add moisture and nourish.
