Crystals magnify the surrounding energy, which is why it is essential to keep their frequencies cleansed and fully charged; that way, Aquamarine and other gemstones in your collection will work at their highest frequencies. There are many methods and techniques to use for your daily cleansing practice, but these are the ones that we find to work the best.
Following the traditions that Native Americans have used for hundreds and hundreds of years, our favorite cleansing practice is a combination of Sage and Palo Santo stored in an Abalone Shell , which will also catch the ashes from the smoke. The indigenous tribes believed that the Abalone Shell and sage combination helps connect the physical world with the spiritual realm. They also believed that a water vessel should be separated from the fire element, which is why we suggest placing a small amount of white sand in the Abalone Shell, which will help ash out burning sage and incense sticks while also protecting its beautiful iridescent sheen from burn marks.
Aquamarine properties contain the healing, vibrant powers of our ancient seas. Evolved over millions of years, this stone rocks when it comes to soothing unpleasant emotions such as grief or loneliness. Aquamarine is an essential component to a healing crystal collection because it helps to reconnect us to the life-giving waters of the earth. Summoning the legendary spirit of seafarers, sailors, and magical mermaids, this gemstone reflects the deep layers of our vast oceans and its various shades of cool blues and greens. Aquamarine is also known to enhance feelings of peacefulness by encouraging inner strength and bravery, whatever the situation.
A simple and effective way for the modern mermaid to benefit from Aquamarine is with a cleansing and rejuvenating beauty ritual. Belonging to the mineral type beryl, which includes emeralds, Aquamarine is known for its incredible anti-aging effects. For youthful and vibrant skin at any age, make beauty water with pieces of raw Aquamarine, which works best for this cleansing water. First, cleanse your crystals with warm filtered water, making sure that it's free of dirt and loose particles. Keep in mind that it's common for these crystals to still have earth on them because of their natural state.
Once the crystals are clean, place them in a glass bowl and cover with filtered water. At sunrise, set the ball in direct sunlight and let the gemstones absorb the amazing power of the sun. If it's a full moon, you also have the option of placing the Aquamarine stones under the moonlight overnight. Now that you have a beauty water infused and activated with Aquamarine healing properties, splash on your face in the morning and night while saying self-love affirmations such as "I am worthy," "I love myself," or another mantra that speaks to your true inner spirit. Refill the bowl with water and return it to the sunlight or under the moonlight, and always have a constant supply of invigorating and soothing Aquamarine water, a rejuvenating addition to your daily skincare routine.
Restore balance and tranquility into your energy fields with Aquamarine, the stunning and vibrant crystal that evolved over the millennia from our incredibly vast and beautiful oceans.
