Rose Quartz is an opener of the heart and is traditionally connected to love, compassion and healing both on a personal and planetary level. It’s a natural de-stressor, a softener of edges and a soother of emotions which is why it’s such a perfect companion to weave into the ritual of sleep. Placing a stone by your bedside or under your pillow at night promotes peaceful dreaming and a restorative sleep.
It radiates gentleness and the sight of it’s pinky hues alone are a balm for tired eyes. Its vibrational qualities are mirrored deep inside its internal structure which is massive in form, with no crystal faces or terminations. No sharp edges, just an open and flowing energy.
The simplicity and beauty that this humble stone emanates is the reason young children are so often drawn to it when encountering crystals for the first time, because it matches the inherent gentleness and openness of their nature.
Our fascination with crystals and gemstones can be traced far back through time. Revered by ancient Tibetan and Chinese cultures, rose quartz was used as a token of love as early as 600 BC, whilst in the tombs of ancient Egypt, facial masks made of rose quartz have been discovered and it’s thought that the ancients believed its properties would promote clear complexions and prevent wrinkles.
We have a large piece of rose quartz placed in the Amly water tank at source. It quietly amplifies the water with its calm and cleansing energy at the very first stages of the process. This weaving of water, silver, plants and crystals continues with the addition of rose quartz powder to our Beauty Sleep Mist, so that this ancient ally can transport you into the mysteries of sleep with its physical and subtle healing properties by your side.
