Why to Use a Body Scrub Before Putting on Your Crystal Jewelry
We recently introduced our Intention Check-In Guide, which teaches you how to reset and refresh your intentions going into the second half of the year. But it’s also important to check in with how you feel on an energetic level at this point in the year, and how you want to feel going forward. One of our newest energy hacks is pairing our crystal body scrubs with our new crystal jewelry collection and we want to share this powerful new practice with you.
Not only is this an amazing daily practice, but it’s even more powerful to right now during the waning period of the moon and before the next new moon. This is the perfect time to scrub away whatever is holding you back, and step into the energy you want to embody. While the intentions may differ from piece to piece and scrub to scrub, the combination of using scrubs and jewelry for any intention allows you to clear the energy of the places where the jewelry will sit (your arms and chest), and then you can wear the intention and soak in the energy from the crystals even more directly. Here’s how to do it:
Step 1: Scrub
Scrub a handful of your Crystal Body Scrub of choice onto your skin in the bath or shower, or standing over the sink, to release any stagnant energy or energy that no longer serves you. Make sure to scrub your chest, as well as your hands and forearms all the way up to your elbow, since this is where you accumulate most of the energy on a daily basis.
Step 2: Rinse & Visualize
Wash the scrub off all of the areas you applied it. As you rinse, visualize the unwanted energy you released leaving your system. As the water goes down the drain, see all your unwanted energy, thoughts, patterns or beliefs going down the drain with it. Repeat steps 1 and 2 until your energy feels clean and clear.
Step 3: Put on Your Crystals
Now that your energy is clear and you are energetically prepared, put on your crystal necklace and/or crystal bracelet to carry your intention with you throughout the day. Your crystals hold the energy you want to embody. Allow that energy to soak into your energy field, filling your mind, body and spirit throughout the day.
Our Favorite Crystal Jewelry & Scrub Combos
While you can use any scrub and wear any piece of jewelry that calls to you, there are some extra-special combinations of energies that can support specific intentions. Here are our four favorite energy combinations:
For daily energetic maintenance: The Cleansing Body Scrub + The Light Keeper
To keep your energy clear, cleansed, and filled with light, there’s no better combination than the Cleansing Crystal Body Scrub and The Light Keeper bracelet. While the scrub, featuring essential oils and a Labradorite crystal, clears your aura and brightens your energy field, the Light Keeper harnesses the high vibration energy of Clear Quartz to surround your spirit in a bubble of white light and positive energy. This is the ultimate pairing for daily use to maintain your energy, or for an on-the-spot treatment after a difficult day to uplift your spirit.
When you need a boost of energy & motivation: Energizing Body Scrub + The Motivator
Think of this combo as a complete mood-booster! The awakening effects of the Energizing Crystal Scrub combined with the active energy of Carnelian in the The Motivator Bracelet work together to give you a boost when you’re feeling low energy. Whether you’re physically or energetically sluggish, using this combination will revitalize your spirit and help you tap into your power so you are ready to take on the world. Call on the citrus essential oils and Carnelian crystal in the scrub to refresh your energy, and let the Carnelian crystals propel you into action.
When you need to breakthrough financial obstacles: Remover of Obstacles Body Scrub + The Manifester
Achieving your financial goals is a two step process: first you have to release the energy that is preventing you from reaching your full potential, and then you have to attract the energy you want in your life. The combination of the Remover of Obstacles scrub and The Manifester Necklace allows you to do just that: release and attract. The scrub features Smoky Quartz and Lapis Lazuli crystals, plus black salt and essential oils, which help you clear away unwanted and negative energy from your energy field. The Manifester harnesses the power of Pyrite crystal to raise your vibration and enhance your manifestation power. Together, this dynamic duo provides the energy you need to break through any obstacles to financial success so you can manifest all that you desire.
When you need to detox from technology: Detox Body Scrub + The EMF Harmonizer
If you’re on or near technology all day, your energy will take a hit whether or not you are aware of it. At the end of the day, or whenever you feel you need a mini tech-detox, this combination is here to help you release any build up energy or harmful frequencies from your devices. The Detox Crystal Scrub, made with Shungite powder, a Hematite stone, and essential oils, removes the physical and energetic effects of EMFs to restore your energy to its natural state. After using the scrub, you can bring in the energy of Shungite through The EMF Harmonizer bracelet to protect, shield and harmonize your energy.
