We are entering that time of year where a dose of pampering is just what the winter blues are calling for! Detoxing is a great way to increase our energy and support our bodies in removing unwanted toxins. Working with gemstones can step up your detox in a gentle yet effective way!
Here are a few easy detox steps using gemstones to cleanse, rejuvenate and radiate!
Gemstone Herbal Facial Steams
~ facial steams area great for deep pore cleansing and the herbs add nutrients to nourish and tone. Adding the gemstones to the water creates a second level of cleansing and nourishing. Two of my favorite crystals for detoxing that are safe for water and skin are:
- Rose Quartz, lovely for releasing impurities, to clear the skin and give you a soft completion while also working with your heart chakra to stimulate the true life force ~ LOVE
- Moonstone: works to assist in the elimination of toxins and increase the assimilation of nutrients while also working with your energy body to cleanse your chakra’s of negativity and enhance your intuitive nature
For steps on how to use and prepare the gemstones for your facial see my article in MindBodyGreen. Remember, not all gemstones are able to handle the boiling method and will be damaged.
Gemstone Mineral Masque: Using a masque created with gemstone powders is a powerful way to detoxify and cleanse the skin. Our Mineral Masque is made with Black Tourmaline and Amethyst ~ both gemstones contain electric charges and emit negative ions and far-infrared rays. Infrared rays are able to penetrate all layers of your skin to gently soothe, stimulate and detoxify the body and mind. The negative ions attract the toxic particles to help draw them out of the body. Both gemstones are also known to improve circulation, inhibit bacterial growth and support cell regeneration. Your face will love you for it!
Gemstone Baths: Adding gemstones to your salt or clay baths will increase the detoxifying affects and give you additional benefits. Again, some of our favorite gemstones to add are Amethyst and Black Tourmaline but here are few other combinations that you may enjoy for the skin and soul: Adding agate or clear quartz with your Amethyst will add extra cleansing and healing to the skin; or for a little added stress relief add smoky quartz or turquoise with your black tourmaline! Step it up again and add essential oils such as lavender or peppermint ~ adding them to the salts or clay prior to placing in the water is best. Or better yet, take a Ceremonial Chakra Bath and move those energy center blocks!
Gemstone Essence: creating high vibrational waters are a great way to increase your internal detox. You can create a gentle elixir by placing clean, polished gemstones into a glass of water and leaving it over night (place the water under the moon light for extra energy benefits) or place it in the sun for 2-3 hours and then remove the gemstones. You can add a few drops to your lemon water, tea or shakes as needed or drink it gradually throughout the day. As with all of the above methods the benefits of creating waters with the Amethyst or Black Tourmaline will give your waters the extra boost they need to help give you a beautiful cleanse internally and externally.

Gemstones are uplifting when held, looked at or worn ~ using them to support us in cleansing is a natural step. Try any or all of the above and you will radiate!
