  • #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.

Since ancient times, Andalusite stones have been used for protection. They believed that the Andalusite meaning as a sign from God, as it has a very unique, natural black cross within it.

  • #PROTECTIONCRYSTALSWEEK {Guest edited by Heather and Timmi at @energymuse} Peacock Ore’s (also called Chalcopyrite) rainbow color surrounds you with light to inspire positivity. It is a stone of creativity, innovation and blessings that helps to increase creative energies and stimulate new ideas. Hold it in your hands and say: Negative energy will not enter my space. I am surrounded by light and peace. This will amplify its properties for peace and protection.

Chalcopyrite is a wonderful meditation stone because it breaks up energy blockages to open up the crown chakra. It is also believed to be one of the strongest healing stones in the mineral kingdom, as it has the ability to align every chakra when placed upon it. Using it in body layouts causes a transformative experience that removes negative energy and replaces it with strong, positive energy. Meditating with them on a regular basis increases your intuition and helps you to become more in tune with the universe. It is also said to help us overcome the idea of “perfection,” encouraging us to embrace who we are and accept ourselves. 💎

  • #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.

  • #NATURALMASCARAWEEK @w3llpeople claim their Expressionist Mascara is a “boundary-breaking formula that creates big, bold, fluffy lashes instantly”… and they’re absolutely spot on.

7 Best Natural Deodorants

April 15, 2018

While mainstream health sites like to suggest there is no link between deodorant use and cancer, it doesn’t take a scientist to understand toxins/chemicals applied to the skin can be absorbed into the bloodstream. How quickly? Many conscious-minded beauty bloggers suggest it’s just 26 seconds, but this can all depend on what it is you’re applying.

When it comes to our underarms, the skin is thinner than some other areas of the body, meaning likelihood of absorption is much higher. So, use of deodorants that contain the likes of aluminium, are, in my book, a huge no-no.

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.
Your privacy is respected, always.

New research has shown clear links between aluminium and detrimental affects on the brain. Beyond aluminium, there are also other ingredients you want to avoid including parabens, steareths, triclosan, propylene glycol, TEA, DEA and artificial colours.

So what is a sweaty person to do? Choose natural, of course. But of the nature-derived underarm deodorisers out there, what ones actually work and have less likelihood of irritation? The latter can depend on your personal sensitivities, so trying a few is often par for the course.

I’m helping your cut through the deodorant confusion, putting forward some of my favourites that I can say without doubt have worked for me.

The Herb Farm Fresh Deodorant

There are some beautiful all-natural products formulated in New Zealand, and those from The Herb Farm are no exception. Founder, herbalist Lynn Kirkland, started the company in 1993 with the mission to give consumers—and her family—an option to choose wholly natural products, free of synthetics and undesirable chemicals. Fast forward to now and the company has a suite of completely natural products that crosses skincare, haircare, mum and baby, healing and therapeutic. I’ve used their deodorant many times, not only because I resonate deeply with the company philosophy, but because it actually works, controlling odour without clogging—thereby allowing the body to cool naturally. Himalayan crystal salt sole is formulated with echinacea and calendula tinctures for their antibacterial and soothing properties.

 

Living Libations Poetic Pits

This isn’t the first time I’ve posted about Poetic Pits range, but I had to add it to this week’s lineup, simply because it’s one of my favourites. I’ve personally used the Ginger Lily formulation, which boasts essential oils of vetiver, lavender, ginger lily, and sandalwood. However, there are other scents in the range such as Rose Glow, Vetiver and Classic. There are no fillers or preservatives here, folks. Just pure oils in a combination that will have you smelling like you’ve stepped out of a shower (all day long). Ethical natural and made with love.

Schmidt’s Geranium Flower Sensitive Formula

I remember when Schmidts Naturals first came onto the market—a waft of fresh air in the deodorant aisle, to be sure. As with many natural formulations, Schmidts original line included bicarbonate soda—an ingredient that doesn’t always agree with those who have sensitive skin. The brand’s solution was their sensitive line, including my favourite Geranium Flower, as well as natural minerals and scented only with essential oils. It’s an award-winning formula that is designed to neutralise odour and absorb wetness naturally.

Woohoo! All Natural Deodorant Paste

This is a great odour buster if you’ve got ultra-sensitive skin. Woohoo! All Natural Deodorant Paste in Mellow has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial ingredients such as magnesium hydroxide, activated charcoal and zinc oxide, which help to neutralise bacteria. There’s also olive leaf extract to boost antibacterial, antifungal and antioxidant action, kaolin clay and tapioca to help absorb moisture, plus olive oil and shea butter to nourish and soothe.

Meow Meow Tweet Grapefruit Baking Soda-Free Deodorant Cream

If you’re looking for an underarm deo that does without the bicarbonate soda (aka baking soda), then Meow Meow Tweet Grapefruit Baking Soda Free Deodorant Cream is one to try. While it’s gentle, it still does a brilliant job of controlling odour, thanks to dietary magnesium and arrowroot powder, which help control odour and moisture. The formulation also includes nourishing plant oils and butters to soothe and condition, as well as essential oils to keep you smelling fresh as a grapefruit. Also available in lavender.

Soapwalla Deodorant Cream

If you haven’t heard of Soapwalla, well, it’s about time. Don’t let the all-natural ingredients make you question its ability to kick odour to the curb. Formulated with super-fine vegetable powders and clays, along with pure lavender, peppermint and tea tree essential oils, this is a deodorant that absorbs moisture and stops bacteria in its tracks. Great for all skin types, Soapwalla Original Deodorant Cream is vegan and made with only organic and food-grade ingredients. Its scent is perfect for men and women.

Bumble & Bee Organic’s Almond Coconut Pit Putty Organic Deodorant Cream

Sweet almond is blended with toasted coconut and a hint of cinnamon in Bumble & Bee Organic’s Almond Coconut Pit Putty Organic Deodorant Cream. I can’t say it much better than the brand itself: “While the almond scent starts out strong but within a few minutes mellows and you can smell the coconut come through. It’s not a sunscreen-style coconut, but more of a toasted coconut aroma. The cinnamon is used in a minute amount for its natural anti-microbial properties.” Bumble & Bee uses a less than five percent concentration of baking soda. Why? Because this ingredient, while natural, can still cause irritation for people with sensitive skin. Using a smaller amount can be useful for those who do find they react to the ingredient. Worth noting: The cream will darken after about three months or so, but will still be usable and effective. However, as the colour will be darker it does have the potential to stain light clothing.
