Birthstone of the Month: Pearls

Birthstone of the Month: Pearls

Happy birth month to all you June (Gemini + Cancer) babies! This month, we're celebrating PEARLS, the June birthstone. Read on to find out a little more about the history of pearls, their healing properties, and a few of our top picks in store right now. Brief History of the Pearl Pearls have been around for centuries- at least as far back as ancient Greece.

Navigating the Full Moon Scorpio Eclipse

Navigating the Full Moon Scorpio Eclipse

How’s Eclipse Season treating you? Truthfully over here…it’s been pretty good so far.

Mental Health Awareness Month: Mantras + Crystals for Peace of Mind

Did you know? May is Mental Health Awareness Month! And while we feel like that’s *a bit* misleading because mental health should ALWAYS be part of the conversation (a much bigger part than it usually is)…we’re decidedly happy to acknowledge it and bring more awareness where we can. Mental health encompasses so many different things for different people on different days.  Sometimes, zoning out to a reality show for an hour can actually be a supportive and accessible way to unplug. Other times, getting away on a luxurious spa retreat is the answer…but not everyone has the privilege of that...
