  • #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} 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.

Inspired by Mum: MOOGOO SKINCARE

April 28, 2018
moogoo

While the name would suggest it’s not vegan-friendly, most products in Australian skincare range MooGoo are, in fact, formulated with plant-based ingredients, with only a handful containing milk protein or honey.

A favourite of those suffering from skin conditions such as eczema and psoriaris, MooGoo’s collection has grown dramatically since its humble beginnings in owner Craig Jones’ Perth kitchen. Now, it includes products across hair and scalp, body care, cleansing, baby, dry skin, and most recently, dental.

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.

From a made-by-hand start, to winding up in many an Australian household, MooGoo is now sold internationally. However, until recently, it wasn’t available “across the ditch”, but due to popular demand, the company recently launched in New Zealand.

I caught up with MooGoo owner and founder, Craig Jones, to find out more…

Can you tell me a little bit about MooGoo’s history?

MooGoo came about after I found out that my mother was using a product made for cows to help treat her skin condition – psoriasis. The “Udder Cream” being used in dairy farms was designed to help keep the skin on cow’s udders in prime condition for milking. Cow’s udders need to be soft and supple, not dry or cracked. However the original Udder Cream my mother used was very thick to apply.

So, 13 years ago, in my little kitchen in Perth, I set about adapting this cream for humans by making it lighter and non-greasy.

What product has become your cult product and why?

We don’t really have a cult product. From time to time different products become our most popular. But what we are known for are our creams for eczema, our natural hair products for people with scalp problems, our natural deodorant and natural sunscreens.

Interestingly, we now have a range of around 30 other products. What I am hoping becomes very popular, because we spent so much time developing it, is a toothpaste with a safe alternative to fluoride. The role of fluoride is important because it fills in cracks and scratches in teeth before it leads to decay. We are using a new alternative ingredient that is edible and studies shows remineralizes at least as well as fluoride.

What products in your range are okay for vegans and cruelty-free beauty buffs to use?

For MooGoo we use milk protein and honey in some products, but all the remaining ingredients are vegan. Our makeup range, Dusty Girls, doesn’t use honey or milk protein – as such they are vegan.

What I am hoping becomes very popular, because we spent so much time developing it, is a toothpaste with a safe alternative to fluoride.

We are cruelty free but almost all Australian brands (except for those that export for retail sale in China) are cruelty free. In fact, animal testing is banned in Europe and soon will be in Australia too which is great. Our ingredients are edible and not too exotic so there is no need or reason for animal testing anyway.

moogoo

What is your stance on animal testing?

Many brands make a big thing of being “cruelty free” which implies most brands do test on animals, but that’s not the case. Almost all brands are “cruelty free”. I don’t know of any brand that tests on animals in Australia and very few overall do so I believe, except maybe the large multinationals. Animal testing is also banned in the EU.

Brands that register their products for sale in China agree that their products may be tested on animals as part of their “safety policy”. For this reason we don’t export our products to China for sale in stores. People can still buy our products online if they live in China of course.

You are committed to formulating natural products. Is the entire range 100% natural?

Because there is no definition of “natural” that is impossible to answer. People have argued that petroleum derived ingredients are “natural” because they come from the ground. We don’t use petroleum derived ingredients, all are plant derived so that would be what most people describe as natural. Because skin care is not food, most ingredients that wash or moisturise have to be modified. We can’t just use soap bark as it doesn’t work well.

For us it is more important that an ingredient is safe, edible and not an allergy trigger. Most poisons are natural derived. Many natural ingredients trigger allergies.

What do you use as a preservative?

We use hops. That is why our products usually aren’t totally white and also have a bit of a hoppy smell sometimes. But that’s a compromise we are prepared to make to stay safe.

Congratulations on your launch into the New Zealand market. What prompted bringing the brand to NZ?

Even though New Zealand is only across the ditch and lots of Kiwis have been buying MooGoo online for years, we haven’t had a huge presence in stores there until now. It was surprising a distributor hadn’t approached us earlier.

When we were approached, we decided it was time to move ahead in NZ. It is incredible watching something we make on the Gold Coast loaded into a container to help people so far away. We primarily export to the United Kingdom and we are especially big in Ireland. At the moment we are only in eight stores in New Zealand but we expect that to change very soon.

We would like to see New Zealand become our second Ireland – similar population, similar temperature and environment, leading to similar skin conditions, especially eczema and dryness. We believe we have products that can help certain people experiencing such skin conditions.

What’s next for MooGoo?

To convince everyone to stop buying chemical filled toothpastes and sunscreens and switch to MooGoo instead.
