  • #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.

Ingredients for Success: JOSH ROSEBROOK

April 26, 2011

Josh Rosebrook and his all-natural, organic beauty line is not only a healthy approach to skincare, but are also amongst the growing number of authentically natural products making an impact on a market dominated by brands made with chemical ingredients.

While his products aren’t yet widely distributed, they’re gaining an enthusiastic following in Hollywood and beyond.

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.

I recently tried the Enzyme Exfoliator from his collection and instantly fell in love with not only its purity and texture, but also the results.

So, just what was it that ignited Josh’s passion for eco beauty? I wanted to find out, so caught up with the popular LA-based hair stylist for a chat…

How did your beauty journey begin?

I was fascinated with taking care of my skin since I was about 18. I loved the fact that if I did a  few things every day, over time, I would always look younger. I began reading the ingredients on the skin care products, researching and testing them on myself. I was always finding ingredients and products that I thought were working and researching to understand why. I have always been fascinated with plants and herbs. It is so amazing to me that these botanical extracts and essential oils contain such mind blowing properties for health and anti aging.  All the bases are covered in nature and it is absolutely complete with the highest forms of all vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids, enzymes, proteins and nutrients.

Our bodies are natural, so I believe everything necessary to keep them vital, healthy and youthful remains in nature. I believe that the conventional, chemical based synthetic cosmetics industry are only trying to mimic that which is in nature in a cheap, quick and now proven dangerous way.

Basically, with all my knowledge of health, skin care and nutrition, I would seek products in the stores that I couldn’t find. I realized there was not any really great organic and completely chemical/synthetic free exfoliators out there. It was very disappointing. I would mix my own oils and experiment with different types of granules to exfoliate my skin pure and natural.  Most exfoliators have too few or not the right size granules and are mostly a cleanser, which cheapens the product. I wanted an anti aging treatment exfoliator.

After a lot of testing, I found I was creating great products on my own. I would mix organic raw cacao powder with essential oils to create an antioxidant mask that completely changed the tone and texture of my skin. My friends noticed and asked for some. I gave them all samples and they came back begging for more and trying to get more for their friends who noticed how amazing their skin looked. I found myself overwhelmed with the response from my friends who noticed minimized pores and reduced fine lines from my Cacao Mask. This process inspired me to have these products manufactured by a top-of-the-line organic chemist.

You’ve worked with some major beauty companies over the years, what did you learn from that time?

I’ve learned from working with major beauty companies over the years that there is very little integrity in their companies and products. It’s about selling something over on consumers to make the most amount of money in the shortest amount of time. There is nothing wrong with making money, it’s the greed and the lies about the products that makes everyone and everything suffer. There is very little accountability and truth running the company, the way the people working for the company are treated and then trickling down into the quality of the product. I’ve found most companies only care about the bottom line. It’s very sad. People, the planet and the animals suffer and ultimately die because of it.

Chemical free, plant based, organic skin care is not just an alternative to chemical laden products, I believe it’s the only way to truly experience anti-aging and true health of the skin.

What people don’t realize is that greed creates a mechanism that only feeds off of itself and continues to perpetuate deeper and deeper angles of greed. This ends up killing life and destroying the world. These greedy corporations don’t realize that if they were honest and took care of people and were conscious of all relations within the company, ultimately, they would make just as much money, and most likely more. That is what I believe.

A lot of companies would rather under pay, under appreciate an employee and try to squeeze the most out of them for as long as they can, than treat them right, pay them fairly and appreciate them and have a long term happy, healthy employee that would radiate the into the quality of the product and the brand.  This to me is poor business and ethics and it’s just not right. When a product is created and corners are not cut, quality is never compromised, standards are at the highest level and the intention is the best possible result at any cost, you have then created a product that needs to be on the shelves.

Why was it so important to create a cruelty-free brand?

Nothing is more important to me than the health and happiness of people, the planet and animals. Ultimately, If you don’t  have that, you don’t have anything I believe. The only way this planet will survive is through the shift in our consciousness that honors all living beings and the planet above all else. When that is practiced, sustainability is automatically there and it’s an effect of living in a world as One.  The only way humanity will survive is through shifting to sustainability. What people also haven’t fully realized is that chemical free, plant based, organic skin care is not just an alternative to chemical laden products, I believe it’s the only way to truly experience anti aging and true health of the skin.

I believe you shouldn’t put anything on your skin unless you can eat it, what are your thoughts on that?

I completely agree. The skin actually has less defense against toxins than when you ingest them. This is because a lot of the time the digestive system can break things down and the skin cannot. What goes on the skin goes straight into the bloodstream. It is all the same. Would you eat a diet of chemical, synthetically created food with petrochemical preservatives and think that you will thrive and stay youthful? No, same thing goes for your skin.

The power of pure, completely natural skin care cannot be matched by chemically derived and processed ingredients and you should be able to safely eat everything you put on your skin, and in that, it will be the best thing for your skin and keeping it vital, glowing, tight and smooth.

The synthetic chemical ingredients currently being used in most lines is absolutely horrifying. Sulfates, petro chemicals, parabens, phalates, 1,4 dioxane, TEAs, artificial fragrance etc. They are extremely harmful. I believe they are causing countless health related problems and cancer. People are not educated and  have no idea how dangerous these foul cheap chemicals are destroying their health, their nervous, brain and respiratory systems. We could be seriously damaging our DNA. It’s very scary, but we have power as consumers to make choices. We have so much power when we choose to deny certain products and choose other ones, other companies. We must do this now.

Your products, such as the exfoliator, really do smell good enough to eat. Can you talk me through the ingredients?

My Enzyme Exfoliator is to the most powerful anti-aging exfoliator treatment on the market today. There are several reasons why it is so exceptionally effective. First, the perfectly sized walnut granules combined with the perfect amount of them in the product work to slough off dead skin cells to reveal fresh young new skin. Exfoliation happens on a second level in my product while the enzymes (small proteins that break down dead skin cells and promote new cell growth) reveal fresh, bright new skin, papaya enzyme and herbal infusions work to do this.

The base of my exfoliator is honey. Honey is packed with vitamins, minerals and enzymes. It works as an antibacterial also. Very powerful healing ingredient. There are more botanical extracts in my products than I have yet to find in any other line. Botanical herbal extracts and infusions are where you get all your anti aging antioxidants, amino acids, fatty acids, nutrients, vitamins and minerals, all the things that nourish, hydrate, detoxify and help the skin remain youthful.

My exfoliator contains sage and neem for detoxification and to balance oil production. Yucca and coneflower are anti bacterial and work deeply as anti inflammatory agents. Chickweed, fennel, stevia and slippery elm are extremely powerful in tightening, regenerating, softening and increasing elasticity and hydration.

The power of pure, completely natural skin care cannot be matched by chemically derived and processed ingredients and you should be able to safely eat everything you put on your skin, and in that, it will be the best thing for your skin and keeping it vital, glowing, tight and smooth.

Eyebright is absolutely magnificent in skin care bringing massive anti oxidants, A, D, E vitamins, eyebright works to tone and smooth the complexion to give a bright glow. Hawthorne berry and marshmallow root protect the cell and prevent hyper pigmentation.

Together, all of these ingredients plus many more infused botanical extracts in my products cover a vast array of benefits for the skin. At the end of the day, my method is to detoxify, nourish, skin, hydrate, and protect the skin. All of this being achieved through many ingredients together. I do not follow a singular miracle ingredient approach to skin care that relates to the latest trends. Great skin is about a lifestyle where you practice health of the skin and prevent damage by a healthy routine and well crafted natural products Combined with a diet rich in plants, low stress and some exercise, beautiful, balanced skin will prevail.

You do believe the use of toxic beauty has contributed to the rise in dis-eases?

Absolutely. Without a doubt in my mind. I believe it in my heart and tests and research have already begun to show this as a fact. We have to realize that the people creating these toxic products don’t really care about you and your children’s health. Parabens have shown up in UK studies unchanged from their original form in women’s breast cancer tumors. A doctor from the university of identified abnormalities in male infants that directly correlated to the level of phthalates found in their mothers. Sulfates and parabens mimic estrogen. It is a proven fact that estrogen causes cancer. It is messing with our reproductive systems. This is not okay!

Artificial fragrances are secret killers. Under the ingredient listing of fragrance that seems so innocuous, are up to a hundred different chemicals creating that toxic mixture. Fragrance can contain neurotoxins and is among the top five allergens ever. Fragrance can hold phalates and 1, 4 dioxane. The chemical 1, 4 dioxane is a contaminant produced during manufacturing.

Research shows 1, 4 dioxane easily penetrates the skin. It’s common in sulfates, anything ending in oleth exynol or in ceteareth. It is a carcinogen and is linked to birth defects, kidney, neuro and respiratory toxicity. This is all very sad and the most susceptible to all these dangerous ingredients are the fetus and children. We have to question everything.

Do you have any celebrity followers?

I have a lot of young Hollywood actors and actress clients who love my products and swear by them. It’s wonderful to have people get so excited by the results of my line. They truly notice the difference it makes in their skin. I’ve found most people are not used to getting visible results from their skin care investments. So this is amazing! I also know that Tori Spelling has my product. Hopefully she loves it!

What are your plans for the brand?

To share it with people and use it as a vehicle to spread awareness about how vitally important it is to make sustainable choices everyday in all aspects of our lives. We have the power as consumers to choose what we believe is right for our health and the planet and we make that choice with all the things we buy. It’s a vote toward a way of life. We need to use our purchasing power to support businesses and products that have a holistic integrity.

I hope that my brand can bring awareness to people who are still very ignorant about how toxic and dangerous the conventional body care industry is. I would love for people to have the products they deserve that are truly healthy for them and to get what they pay for.

Where can readers buy Josh Rosebook products online?

My line is available at www.theparlourlosangeles.com/shop/shop and www.joshrosebrook.com. It is also available at The Parlour on 3rd in Los Angeles. Soon to be available at other high end retail and spa locations. We ship anywhere.

Your favourite eco indulgence?

I think my favorite eco indulgence is probably gourmet vegan cuisine. I absolutely love really amazing vegan food that was prepared with the highest quality organic ingredients and a lot of love. I also love well designed clothes made from hemp or organic cotton. Most importantly I love indulging in organic and completely chemical-free skin care that has been free of all toxic and chemical processing.
