Unlike the saying, you may not be 100% clear on crystals.

Far from the dark and dingy crystal shops of the past, crystals have adopted a new, trendy identity concurrent with the rise of the wellness trend.

We explored this the world of crystals to give you the scoop on what crystals do, what benefits they have and how we have incorporated them into our Sodashi range to amplify your beauty ritual.

What is a crystal?

Generally speaking, a crystal is an organised group of molecules or atoms that have crystallised through various methods. In the case of Rose Quartz, this crystallisation process occurs beneath the earth as magma travels to the surface and cools.

Crystals come in many forms, shapes, sizes and densities, and all have various benefits and uses for mental and physical wellbeing.

Although probably the most well-known and widely-used crystals are sugar and salt, other more enticing examples include beautiful Diamonds, Amethyst and Rose Quartz.

How do they work?

As you may know, everything in (and outside of) the world possesses energy. And with energy comes vibration.

Sometimes, due to stress or otherwise, the vibrations within our mind and body can get a little bit out of sync. Physically, this can affect circulation as well as sound cognitive function – otherwise known as a huge ‘mind block’.

As crystals emanate different frequencies, interaction with them can offer a balancing effect on the mind and body. Like auto-tune does for a pitchy singing voice, crystals can serve to realign the body and mind for optimum function.

But they aren’t just used to realign the body.

Crystals have long been used for many practical purposes, such as modulating light emissions in screen devices and regulating time accuracy in quartz clocks.

How does Sodashi harness the power of crystals?

The ‘love’ crystal, Rose Quartz, is specifically incorporated within our Samadara Age-Defying Elixir to enliven the pure plant formula and give the Elixir a stabilising energy.

We also offer two Rose Quartz Crystal medallions with our Samadara Age-Defying Crème to maximise benefits via sumptuous, rhythmic massage.

Sodashi also incorporates crystals into our signature treatments:

  1. Crystal Opulessence Luxe Facial

This sumptuous facial reawakens the skin and aids oxygen circulation to harmonise wellbeing. Combining loving Rose Quartz, energising Carnelian and gentle, balancing Aventurine, this energetic trio works in synergy with Sodashi pure plant essences to promote optimum energy flow.

  1. Chakra Balancing Treatment

As the name of this luxurious treatment suggests, a variety of selected gems (such as Golden Citrine, Amethyst and Mookite) work alongside Sodashi’s Chakra Blend Oils to instil a deep sense of relaxation and equilibrium.

  1. Samadara Ultimate Age Defying Facial

Drawing on ancient Ayurvedic principles, this heavenly treatment embraces nurturing Rose Quartz; using these crystals to enhance a luxe, stimulating facial massage. The soothing vibration of Rose Quartz crystal removes stress from the skin, allowing botanical formulas to work to best effect.
