Let’s make DIY Crystal 💎🔮 Infused Vibrational Perfumes

Hibiscus Moon Videos 16 Comments

So, let’s dive into creating our own High Vibrational Crystal Infused Essential Oil Perfume!

These sorts of perfumes are great because they’re:

  • holistic
  • all-natural
  • non-toxic (actually helping your body to detox and get healthier if you’re using the right kind of essential oils in them~!)
  • while also gently entraining your vibrational frequency

And, you’re gonna fall in love ♥ with how EASY this is!

CAUTION: Essential oils are super-potent and need to be diluted in a carrier oil like jojoba or fractionated coconut oil before applying them to the skin. DO NOT USE with elderly folk, pets, pregnant mamas or young children. If you have sensitive skin, you’ll want to stick to the recipe as given or maybe even dilute it even further. I’ve experimented with this recipe quite a bit. I now leave out all but a small bitty amount of the fractionated coconut oil for a more potent scent because my skin can take it. You’ll have to play with it and see what works best for you.

The first blend I go over in the above video is one that I’ve been making and wearing for over a year now.  🙂 I just love this particular combo of oils and crystals as an everyday vibrational essence.  It’s quite lemony, very fresh and also very calming with the lavender. Then it also includes just a couple drops of Frankincense to really bring the frequency up to the next level.

Tap into the Energies
The crystal chips I include are from those little bottles that you may find in your local metaphysical and craft stores. I also had the bottles charging up on my altar for a few days before using them in this essential oil perfume.

You may have noticed in the above video I used an ingenious little rose quartz gemstone roller bottle. I looooove how the gemstone roller adds that extra layer of feminine and divine goddess high vibey energy, allowing you to roll it right over the skin.

I got my bottle from this Etsy shop.

Additionally, you can take this whole exercise a step further and imbue your perfume with a special affirmation; words of intention, just like the late, great scientist and author, Dr. Emoto taught us by labeling your bottle with powerful words to infuse your perfume with that specific intention.

[caption id="attachment_20621" align="aligncenter" width="595"] That time I met the late great Dr. Emoto and we drank clear quartz gem elixir together. So grateful to this man and his work.[/caption]

If you know me, you know I like layering on the vibrational frequencies to amp it up another level, so yet another way to do that is to now bring in the corresponding oils.

The essential oils and specific high-quality fractionated coconut oil I used in the video are from doTERRA. If you’d like to learn more about why I chose doTERRA and how I use it as part of my abundant business model, click here.

You can choose to simply watch the above video for my recipes or grab the convenient downloadable Recipe PDF below… or do both. 🙂

I hope you enjoyed this DIY time and start mixing up your own high vibe Crystal Essential Oil Perfumes (if you’re not doing so already 😉). What’s your favorite combo?  Please share in the comments below.

Crystals for Autumn Equinox

Hibiscus Moon astronomy, gratefullness, Mother Earth 14 Comments

I REALLY LOVE this time of year! But I think I say that every time the seasons change. I get such a charge from the seasonal cycles.

The Autumn Equinox (or Spring Equinox for those in the Southern Hemi) is now upon us and for the purposes of this blog post I’m going to stick to the Autumn aspects, but if you’re from Down Under or just plain interested, you can read my classic blog post on Spring Equinox here.
Some Science, Of Course!
So, before I get to the crystals, a bit o’ science on the Equinox stuffs for a sec. I can’t help myself! This year’s Autumn (or Fall) Equinox lands on Friday, September 22.

There are 2 equinoxes each year; in September and March. Because of the tilt of our planet on our axis, we’re usually getting more sun on one hemisphere than on the other, but there are 2 times/year (Spring and Autumn Equinox) when we get pretty much equal amounts of sunlight on both hemi’s, so our night and day are of equal length everywhere on Mama Earth. So cool!

Autumn Equinox Energies

Balance Aspect: No matter where you are on planet, the equinoxes are all about balance & harmony, again this is b/c this is when we’re receiving equal amounts of sun & moon energy. Therefore, this is a great time to choose to focus on bringing balance into your life by aligning yourself to these energies at this time of year.

Preparation Aspect: As we take our annual vortex journey through our Solar System around our local star, the Sun, we flow through varying energies and the energy of Autumn or Fall is our time to do last-minute tweaks to any intentions or our manifestations we’ve had in the works for this entire year… before we go into our “hibernation zone” for the winter.

Winter is all about rest & cave time. Autumn has always represented harvest time with an eye towards prepping for going into our introspective hibernation time… so in the wintertime, we can focus on resting & renewing without being stressed out about simply surviving. We just had our September Harvest Moon; a time to reap the rewards of our hard work. In fact, the Autumn Equinox is the original time of our US Thanksgiving (giving thanks for the bountiful harvest) before it was changed to its current date for economic reasons.

You might be thinking to yourself right now…
“Hey! I’m no farmer and I’m not a squirrel or a bear… none of this applies to me!”
Yeah, what I’m talking about above is obviously so in nature and certainly applied to how we USED to live even just one hundred years ago… but not so much today. However, keep in mind, all this farmer talk can be applied figuratively to our everyday lives even if you don’t have your own ranch.  😉 If you really pay attention, you’ll note that your energy is leaning this way too. Feel into it. Am I right or am I right?

For me, this is a time of year to be grateful for all I have, reflect on my goals & check on the yield in all life areas. Are the results bountiful or lackluster? If you need to tweak some things, now’s the time to do it, before we go into winter (rest & reflection time). The energies themselves are balancing out; as we go from an intense time of growth and harvest to a time of preparing for quiet and retreating within.

Here’s the quick breakdown:

  • Time to reap the final harvest
  • Give thanks
  • Balance
  • Prepare for winter ahead: winter of the spirit, time to rest

Autumn Equinox Crystals for Balancing Aspects

  • Moonstone – embodies an enlightened female energy; soothing, moon energy, intuition enhancer
  • Sunstone – invites in enlightened male energy; abundance, solar energy, stone of leadership
  • Magnetite – aligns and balances energies + polarities

No matter where you are on planet, the equinoxes are all about balance and harmony so the stones I’ve listed above are the ones I like to work with at this time of year.  They are the ones that embody the balance between masculine and feminine energies, yin & yang, sun + moon, the 2 polarities. So, I like to use both moonstone and sunstone together to achieve this. The vibrational frequencies of these 2 stones together are PERFECT for reminding us to stay balanced in all aspects of our lives.  Then you can add magnetite to that mix to enhance even further while adding in a bit of grounding too.

You can also sneak in some Balance Essential Oil from doTERRA there too to further enhance these vibrational frequencies.

Autumn Equinox Crystals for Introspective/Preparatory Aspects
If you’d like to, instead (or additionally), focus on reviewing and preparing for the time ahead here are some crystals that incorporate the ideal energies for this:

  • Stilbite – introspection, preparing & inner peace
  • Tiger’s Eye – “the practical stone”, invites in practicality, introspection & discernment
  • Shamanic Dream Stone – this stone is also good for polarity balancing as well as for introspection

How to Work with the Energies
I’ll use these stones at my altar while meditating, within my sacred space or in a crystal grid to honor these energies.

Here are some ideas for you:

  • Include these stones on your altar or in your sacred space
  • Create an Autumn Equinox crystal grid
  • Do a crystal meditation
  • Drink a gem elixir tea
  • Indulge in an Autumn Equinox crystal bath
  • Bring your chakras into balance with a Full Chakra Balance session. I recommend doing a session like this 4 times a year; at each equinox and solstice for good energetic hygiene. You can do this yourself or dive deep for a real treat and have one done by a Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healer.

I hope you’re able to carve out some time to celebrate and prepare.  If you have your own ritual for calling in balance or working with a combo of crystals in your own sacred way to align with the Autumn Equinox energies please share in the comments below.  I always love to hear your ideas ❤

Happy Harvest and Many Crystal Blessings!

Top 4 Crystals to Work with Moon Energy

Hibiscus Moon moon, Videos 24 Comments

Let’s talk about crystals we can use to work with moon energy. Whether it be for the full moon, new moon or any phase of the moon.

I feel that when you’re working with different phases of the moon, it’s not so much about the specific crystals that you choose to work with, because there are several different ones, but more about your intention of working with that particular moon phase.

There are several crystals that have vibrational frequencies that align with the moon in general, no matter what phase the moon is in at that particular time. Which is great b/c it makes uncomplicated work of it.

Again, it doesn’t matter whether it’s full moon or new moon, what I feel is most important is that you be very clear on what your intentions are & that you align them with that particular phase of the moon.

Here’s a very general summary of those energies…
Full Moon Energy

  • It’s a time when you reap what you’ve sown.
  • It’s when you’re grateful for whatever lessons you’ve learned in last moon’s cycle, or for whatever intentions and seeds that you planted that actually came to fruition.
  • It’s about completion.
  • Yang energy.

New Moon Energy

  • A time to plant seeds and a time of new beginnings.
  • Starting and growing something new.
  • Great time to set intentions.
  • Yin energy.

** If you’d like to learn more about setting intentions with new moon energy, I created an earlier blog post on setting intentions at the New Moon over here. And if you’d like some tips on working with the Full Moon & Your Crystals head over here. **

The crystals I’m recommending here resonate very strongly with moon energy at all phases.
My Crystal Recommendations for working with Moon Energy

1.  Selenite
Selenite is a beautiful crystal that actually has a sort of iridescence or sheen to it that reminds us very much of the moon.  It’s got that tell-tale moon beam glow.

Selenite embodies goddess energy, and it’s a crystal that allows us to more easily communicate with our higher selves.

Selenite often comes in many different forms.  It can be polished, like a heart or a palm stone, or shaped into a wand. Sometimes you will see the natural selenite towers, which come in a range of sizes from small to large.

You may have even heard about this beautiful, magical selenite crystal cave in Mexico.  Have you heard of it?   It’s called the Cave of Giants, where these huge selenite, (actually, gypsum; gypsum is selenite) humongous crystals have grown.

It’s not a place we can visit. No, not a place we can go.  Too dangerous. It’s very difficult for even the geologists to go down there, but it’s just so magical to even think about and even know that a place like that exists on mama earth!  Ya know?

It’s like the fortress of solitude that Superman went to while growing up and he learned all his stuff and all his knowledge and connected with his higher self. 😉
2.  Moonstone
The next crystal for working with moon energy may come as no surprise to you, it’s moonstone.  I have a moonstone, that I show you in the video, that  just so happens to be carved into a sphere, so it looks very much like Luna herself.

It doesn’t need to be white moonstone, it can be any kind of moonstone, there’s even peach or black moonstone.

Some of them will have a  flashy iridescence to them that you can see in certain light which is quite beautiful.

[caption id="attachment_3212" align="aligncenter" width="600"] moonstone tumbled stones[/caption]

Any kind of moonstone is great for working with lunar energy at any moon phase.

It’s all about goddess and feminine energy. Makes sense b/c the moon itself is actually known to embody that goddess feminine energy.

Moonstone is also great for allowing you to more efficiently tap into your intuition.

It’s also about mystery.  So, if you’re looking to align with that while working with certain lunar cycles, then you’ll want to work with moonstone.
3.  Labradorite

Labradorite is another great choice to work with moon energy.  It’s actually closely related to moonstone and it has that similar flash; a blue flash that you get in certain light, that iridescent quality again.

Labradorite is all about tapping into magic.  Plus it’s also quite protective.  If you’re feeling like you need some protective vibrational frequencies during a certain phase of the moon, then go ahead and try working with labradorite.
4.  Opal

And another stone that we can work with to more closely align ourselves with that type of lunar energy is opal.

Opal allows us to align with that water energy so it’s also about purification.

Any type of true authentic opal will do, it doesn’t need to be white precious opal either. There are many different kinds.

Just don’t reach for opalite as a replacement, b/c that is a man-made “stone” & will not deliver the same kind of energy at all (which I talk about in this blog post.).

Well, I hope you like my picks for working with moon energy, Crystal Hottie!

Do you have certain stones you like to use for  the waning / new moon & during the waxing / full moon?  Are your go-to stones included in my list? 

I’d love to hear about the crystal connections you’ve made @ different moon phases.  Share with us in the comments below!

Crystals for Spring (or Autumn) Equinox

Hibiscus Moon astronomy, ceremony, Crystal Grids, Crystals, meditation, spirituality 13 Comments

Spring equinox is coming up!! Do you know what crystals to use with this event?

No, I don’t have a religion or dogma that I subscribe to but I’ve said it before, I really feel a strong pull towards following the cosmic cycles. Back to nature, ya know? Back to what the ancients intuitively did & many still do. There’s a reason it worked so well for so long.

When it comes to feeling what resonates with my soul, I go with natural cycles & have this aversion to our modern Gregorian calendar. Oh yeah, its all fine & good for day to day getting shiz done but when it comes to health, soul nourishment + spiritual balance, the natural cosmic cycles ring my bell.

So before I get to the crystals, let’s tawk equinox stuffs for a sec.

The  Spring Equinox (or Autumn Equinox for those in the Southern Hemisphere) is upon us (Wednesday, March 20, 2013).
2 Cosmic Cycles Toys:

  • Here’s a great site that explains all about the upcoming equinox.
  • How about an awesome FREE app that keeps track of the Sun & Moon, Equinoxes, Solstices + more (iPhone + iPad only)?

If you live on the Northern Hemisphere, the Spring Equinox represents renewal time. We just had our introspective hibernation time & its time to emerge & start the growth cycle again. I view this time as the NEW beginning. My new year! Its a time to set goals & plan them out. What am I going to do & how am I going to do it? This is so exciting & so much FUN for me!!! Is it b/c I’m a Capricorn? Nah, I think if you have the right perspective on it, this can be fun no matter what sign  you are. 😉
Spring Equinox Crystals for Growth + Goal-Setting + Planning
The crystals that embody ideal energies for growth + planning for me are:

  • green aventurine
  • dendritic agate
  • chrysoprase

I will usually set them out as I fill out planning sheets, work with my biz coach, plan vacations with my hub-bub, Frankie, etc. This is for BIG PLANS & GOALS…for the whole year. If I need mediation time to figure things out then I will mediate & work with 1 of these stones.

Spring Equinox Crystals for Balance
No matter where you are on Mother Earth, the equinoxes are all about balance & harmony b/c this a time that we receive equal amounts of sun & moon energy. EVERYWHERE on the planet.

So 2 more crystals I like to use are:

  • moonstone
  • sunstone

I’ll use these stones on my altar within my sacred space or in a crystal grid to honor these energies.

[caption id="attachment_653" align="aligncenter" width="422"] My sacred space & altar[/caption]

I REALLY LOVE this time of year!

These stones…for me…embody balance between masculine & feminine energies, ying & yang, sun & moon, 2 polarities. The vibrational frequencies of these stones are PERFECT for reminding us to stay balanced in all aspects of our lives.

Welcome Spring (or happy Harvest if you’re below the equator!)
Super Sparkles to you today!!!



P.S. Not quite sure how to “work with” & meditate with your stones for clarity, Lima Bean? My Get to Know Your Crystals eKit can get you all set on that path for the cost of 2 coffees. 🙂 You can check that out here.
