Rock Solid: Crystal-Infused Beauty

On a quest for positive energy? Try these mood-boosting spa treatments and products for a high-vibrational shift

Words by KELLY ATTERTON

 

With crystals having a mainstream moment, it’s easier than ever to bring Mother Earth’s revitalizing vibes into your beauty rituals. Whether you’re a die-hard believer or a casual admirer, there’s really no downside to adding a little magic into the mix.

“Pink Himalayan quartz is the stone of the divine feminine and selenite protects and ushers in peace,” says Courtney Abbiati, co-founder of The Urban & The Mystic. The crystal intuitive also favors clear quartz. “[It’s] programmable: Set your intention for your … day with this crystal, and it will help you call in that vision.”

When incorporated as an ingredient in skincare, the minerals in crystals are said to physically enhance a product’s benefits and are beloved by devotees for their purported energizing virtues. Colleen McCann, a Los Angeles-based shamanic energy medicine practitioner and the author of Crystal RX, says, “Our ancestors intuitively knew crystals could bring about energetic shifts and changes, whether worn as adornment, kept in close proximity or used in ritual.”
