We’re spoilt for choice these days when it comes to the range of brands that are using a variety of methods to infuse the energy of crystals within their beauty elixirs. Numerous natural skin care brands place crystals in their labs to energise the production process and products. Whereas, a handful of artisan makers are adding crystal infused water to their products, or placing a little cluster of crystals within the face mist bottle, to further energise the product. We stock two respected brands which harness the powers of crystal alchemy within their skincare.
1 : AEOS energised organics
AEOS is the only brand that I have come across that works with an alchemist who takes up to 12 months to transform the actual solid crystal in to a liquid tincture that is then added to each product so that the beneficial properties of the crystal can be absorbed by the skin, and in to the bloodstream for assimilation. This is as sophisticated as it gets in regards to the use of crystals in skin care application. Having visited the lab where this takes place and experienced the results when applying these spagyric crystal tinctures to my own skin, it’s extraordinary to say the least.
Why AEOS use crystals
The creators of AEOS know that there’s more to a healthy complexion than just treating it to the highest quality botanical ingredients. Our emotions can affect our physical body and our skin can reflect long-standing emotional states. AEOS utilises the benefits of colour therapy which combines plant pigments and liquid tinctures of crystals to enhance our emotional wellbeing, which in turn can enhance the wellbeing of our skin. The colours that are of most benefit to us depends on our unique circumstances.
Being attracted to the calming hues of blue signals the desire to find more peace and serenity in your daily life. To choose blue is to invite stillness and calm within, to find peace and acceptance with your circumstances. The Blue formulations are rich in skin-soothing chamomile and enhanced with spagyric crystal tinctures of amethyst, turquoise and emerald, that help you slow down, breathe deep and soothe away the effects of stress from your skin.

When you’re drawn to the warm hues of pink, you instinctively recognise the desire to bring more kindness, caring and love into your life. Feeling drawn to pink is a gentle reminder to nurture and look after yourself a little more, just as you nurture and look after your loved ones. The pink formulations are enhanced with spagyric crystal tinctures of fire opal, rose quartz and rubellite, that help to support the heart chakra and assist you in achieving the rosy complexion that replenishing these pink qualities within yourself helps to create.

2 : Gemstone Organic
Gemstone Organic combines organic botanical ingredients with gemstone essences, resulting in unique skin care products that bring about soft, supple, luminous skin. Seriously. These face cremes are THAT good. The scent. The texture. The way they sink so beautifully in to the skin. The hydration they provide. And the way my skin glows.
How & Why Gemstone Organic make their crystal essences
By combining ceremony with science, the makers of Gemstone Organic infuse the gems into an ionized water to create the high vibrational, pH-balanced essences. The water is then left under the light of the full moon, or the presence of the new moon. Just as the moon controls the tides of the ocean she has an influence over our own ebb and flow, as our bodies are made up of over 60% water. Using moon water can help us stay connected to ourselves, as well as to the cosmos. Once the mineral and energetic properties have been obtained, the essence is finished and ready to be used in our skincare.
This is an effective combination because water is highly conductive and a beautiful path for activating the healing properties of the gemstones. Each Gemstone Organic essence contains a different blend of gems and crystals for their unique skin care purposes, which are matched with essential oils to boost the healing properties of the waters, plants and minerals. Your skin is a porous organ so these high vibrational waters are absorbed into your bloodstream, offering their healing properties that work to balance your complexion and energetic body.
Gemstone Organic also make a range of gemstone bracelets, each with its own genuine, high-vibrational gemstone quality, to activate love, healing, calm and peace.

HAVE YOU TRIED ANY OF THESE CRYSTAL INFUSED SKIN CARE PRODUCTS? WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE?
Our brand and product selection is based on thorough research, based on 20+ years of industry experience. If we are not certain that an ingredient is safe and effective at bringing about desired results, we won’t stock the product. ‘Natural’ and ‘organic’ products and online shops are becoming more prevalent these days. Whilst this is great, it also is rather confusing, as many ‘natural’ and ‘organic’ brands out there contain toxic ingredients that sound ‘natural’ or ‘naturally-derived’ but are indeed irritating to the skin and internal organs. If you are unsure about any ingredient, product or brand, please don’t hesitate to get in touch in the comment box below.
