1/2 cup olive oil, divided

1 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt, divided

3/4 teaspoons black pepper, divided

Wellness Practice: Crystal Healing

I used to think crystals were a little “woo-woo” because I didn’t understand them or how they worked. Over the past several years, though, I’ve learned more about crystals and their fascinating properties.

Garnet Crystal Gemstone

Here’s a quick summary.

All natural substances, including humans, vibrate at specific frequencies as a result of the movement of their atoms and molecules.

Crystals have unique frequencies, and are believed to interact with the body. Different frequencies can elicit different physical and emotional responses.  

This week, let’s talk about Garnet and the effect its frequency can have on the mind and body.

Garnet is considered to be the crystal of courage, and is thought to stimulate energetic and emotional balance in the body.

Garnet is believed to influence the following:

  • Courage and determination
  • Passion & creation
  • Sense of safety, security, and protection
  • Feelings of being centered and in harmony

We infuse Garnet Crystals in two of our essential oil roller blends: Root Chakra Blend to encourage feelings of safety, security, protection, and groundedness, as well as in our Seize the Day Blend to promote energy and feelings of courage, determination, passion, and creation.  

 

Live well. Be kind.
