According to the American Gem Society, precious stones like amethyst, quartz, and sapphire offer healing to all who wear them, and beauty enthusiasts everywhere are tapping into this age-old belief.
The idea of the healing power of gems and crystals has been around for centuries, but in recent years, including them in daily life has become much more mainstream. Everyone from Tik Tok influencers to famous models sings the praises of these beautiful masterpieces, and now, we see a huge surge in the beauty market. From makeup to hair care, brand owners are formulating products with gemstones to lend a mystical healing experience to their loyal customers’ beauty routines.
One brand that masterfully fuses beauty and wellness with the use of gemstones is Meraki. Meraki is a vegan beauty and hair care line that is cruelty-free, non-toxic, and made with fair trade botanicals. Each batch is created with ingredients sourced from around the world, and the products are then activated with gemstones. Owner Amber Makupson, a licensed aesthetician, swears by the benefits of using gems in beauty products.
“Applying a product that is infused with gemstones and crystals can be extremely beneficial for empaths and [energetically sensitive] people like myself. You can embody the vibration and healing properties of each gemstone or crystal once applied to your skin and hair. When a gemstone or crystal is placed inside or infused into beauty products, this crystalline frequency becomes a beautifying conduit for healing, cleansing, and elevation,” Amber says.
The Meraki collection offers a beautiful selection of products that include shampoos, curl primers, and multipurpose oils that you can use on your skin and hair. Check out a few of the products from this incredible line below!
