Healing Gemstones and Skincare

December 4, 2017

The aesthetic and energetic power of crystals and minerals have been known and used for thousands of years! Ancient civilizations, like the Egyptians and the Chinese, have used gemstones in skincare since the dawn of recorded history.

Known as electro-stimulants, minerals in gemstones function as semi-conductors for your skin! This is essential to increasing cellular productivity, performance, repair and penetration the skin while leveraging the effects of any other ingredients.

 

 

TONING

You can infuse filtered water with gemstones, minerals and crystals. The elevated frequency emitted from gemstones and precious minerals helps direct energy to specific areas of need, constantly adapting to your skin under any condition, allowing for maximum performance and benefits.

How To:

  • Add your crystals to filtered water

  • Let the crystals sunbathe or moonbathe for 5-10 mins at a time (so the water doesn’t evaporate)

  • Remove the crystals

  • Transfer the water to a spray bottle

  • Spritz on your skin to heal, replenish and refresh!

 

MASKING

Use your crystal toning water as the base for your face mask! This infuses your skin with extra mineral healing powers, which goes straight into your bloodstream.How To:

  • Add the crystal water to a bowl

  • Add your favorite powdered mask

  • Mix to a muddy consistency

  • Use a fan brush to gently paint the mask onto your face

  • Wash with filtered water

OILS & SERUMS

You can also infuse your serums with the power of gemstones and crystals! To get the best results for gorgeous-looking skin, add these exceptional minerals to your daily routine.

How To:

  • Fill a kitchen bowl with your favorite oil (organic olive oil, jojoba oil or almond oil for any skin tone!)

  • Add your crystals for 3 minutes to infuse

  • Remove crystals and your oil is ready to use!

  • Use liberally on face, hair and body for ultimate, healing hydration!

 

Good Healing Crystals to Use:

-Crystal Quartz

-Rose Quartz

-Citrine points

-Ocean Jasper

-Natural pyrite cubes

-Laboradorite

-Moonstone

 

 

You can also use various minerals to make DIY makeup.

Much of the makeup and even glitter products we use are made of various minerals from the Earth.

Such as:

-Talc

-Clay

-Titanium Dioxide

-Mica

-Zinc Oxide

-Iron deposits

- Magnesium Stearate

 

Homemade Mineral Make-up can help to hide redness, blurs imperfections, removes shine, and has a naturally occurring UV-A and UV-B radiation blocking properties.

 

Most ingredients you can find in your backyard or online!

 

www.pvsoap.com is a recommended site for ingredients! Amazon is also a good site to use as it is sometimes hard to find the right ingredients.

 

DIY Recipe:

Step One: Find your Ingredients and tools to use

  •  

  • Micronized Titanium Dioxide

  • Zinc Oxide

  • Sericite Mica - Matte Finish

  • Magnesium Stearate

  • Yellow, Red & Brown Iron Oxide Pigments

  • Jojoba Oil

  • Vitamin E Oil

  • Essential Oil (opt.) I like carrot seed oil for its skin-rejuvenative properties, or tea-tree oil as an excellent treatment for acne

  • Mortar & Pestle or small grinder

  • 30g (1oz) Sifter Jars

  • measuring spoons

  • Kabuki brush (large full brush for foundation)

Makes approximately (3)-30 gram jars (3 oz)

 

Step 2: Mix Dry Ingredients

In the mortar or grinder, combine:
 

  • 8 tsp Micronized Titanium Dioxide

  • 3 tsp Sericite Mica

  • 4 tsp Zinc Oxide

  • 1 tsp Magnesium Stearate

  • 1/2 - 1 tsp Yellow Iron Oxide

  • 1/16 tsp Brown Iron Oxide

  • Pinch of Red Iron Oxide

  •  

Take time smashing it up with your pestle/grinder. It won't seem like it's doing much at first, but slowly you'll start to see your color emerge. Continue smashing until it looks uniform.

 

Step 3: Mix Wet Ingredients

 

Add the following to the mixture:
 

  • 1/4 tsp Jojoba Oil

  • 5 drops Vitamin E Oil

  • 4-8 drops any essential oil

  •  

Smash again, making sure to distribute the liquids evenly. They'll appear to just get swallowed up by the minerals, but remember that they need to be worked around until you have a uniform mixture.

Now add 1 tsp. Sericite Mica for a nice matte finish.

 

 

TO TWEAK THE COLOR:

Change the tint by adding more of any of the iron oxides. 
Add more titanium dioxide, zinc oxide or sericite mica if you desire a lighter overall shade.
Make note of your additions/changes so that you can duplicate when necessary.

 

Step Four: Transfer

This is the step to transfer your miracle mixture into a usable container!
Using a funnel, transfer foundation powder into a 30 gr sifter jar for easy application.
