Brand Focus: Gemstone Organic

Gemstone Organic is a very special and unique line created and founded by Debra Haugen. Whether you believe in the beneficial properties of gemstones and crystals or not, you can easily enjoy the other amazing ingredients and reap their benefits. I don't have a crystal or gemstone collection nor do I really have a concrete opinion on them, but the concept of the brand and limited number of ingredients is what really encouraged me to try out the products.
These unique essences are created from select crystals and powerful gemstones.
The energy of the earth, fire, water and air are all carried in the gemstones as they are being weathered and formed. Infused into purified and ionized water they create a highly vibrational, pH balanced H2O. Gemstone Essences offer your skin a revitalizing energy similar to mineral springs, which have been used for centuries as a regenerating modality for both internal and external healing.

They were kind enough to send me samples of the *Organic Calendula Gem Hydrosol and *Ruby Creme. Ruby was the only one that didn't contain coconut oil and my skin gets very irritated during the colder months, so it seemed like the perfect fit for me.

*Organic Calendula Gem Hydrosol (with Quartz Crystals): Healing and gentle for all skin types, use on abrasions, sun burns and skin disorders, fresh herbal and slightly floral scent, and infused with Quartz Crystals to renew and refresh body and spirit. Along with containing Quartz Crystals, this Hydrosol is Gem Essenced using color coded stones to work in conjunction with the plant, bringing its full healing potential to you. Keep these Quartz Crystal points long after you Hydrosol is gone!

Retails for $22.95 USD/4 oz, $14.95 USD/2 oz, or $10.95 USD/1 oz. Available in Calendula, Rose, Lavender, Wild Sage, Ylang Ylang, and Helichrysum.

I love calendula and I love hydrosols, seems like a match made in heaven no? It is! The mist that comes out of this little blue bottle is super fine and lovely. I hate when a toner/hydrosol basically spits in your face instead of evenly distributing the mist. The refreshing scent is both calming and uplifting, and I feel as though it instantly calms my skin when it's a bit red. The quartz crystal is actually at the bottom, you can hear it when you shake the bottle. Since I didn't receive a full sample (the tiny bottle pictured above only came about 1/4 full, if that), it was used up within a week of receiving it. Based on the short amount of time that I had to use it, I really enjoyed it and will be purchasing a full size once I use up some of the toners and floral waters that I currently have.

Ingredients: Calendula floral water/hydrosol and Quartz Crystal.

*Ruby Creme:  Organic Ruby is a face and body créme perfect for extra dry skin and skin conditions. Made with Gemstone Essence from Ruby and other select Crystals this créme raises skin temperature promoting circulation and the elimination of toxins, improving skin disorders. It is our only créme with Shea Butter and it's high Vitamin A content soothes dermatitis. Essential oils from Lavender and Sandalwood enhance blood circulation and are anti-inflammatory to the skin. Lemongrass and Neroli essential oils give this créme a fun and bright citrus scent.

Ruby is our Fire & Passion Créme. It connects your Root and Heart Chakras and brings wisdom in teaching you how precious you are. The oldest healing uses for Ruby gemstones have been found to be cleansing the blood of toxins. Ruby ignites your creativity with vivid strength, vitality and confidence. 

Retails for $24.95 USD. Available in Ruby, Rose Quartz, Moonstone, Jade, and Gold.

I. Love. This. Creme. Face creams are really hard for me to try, I'm always worried that they're going to break me out or mess up my skin, but this one blew me away. The scent of lemongrass is mild but uplifting as I inhale while massage it onto my skin every morning. The creme quickly melts between my fingers and applies beautifully to the skin, leaving a demi matte finish. Not quite matte, not quite luminous. Just perfection and a great base for makeup. It also immediately calms down my skin and takes down any redness, seriously! This little jar is jam packed with amazing ingredients to help nourish, heal, calm, and moisturize the skin. Oh, and don't be fooled by how small the jar is because a little goes a very long way. This jar also wasn't full, however, I still have some left after using it for a couple of months.

Ingredients: Hemp Oil*, Rose Water*, Gemstone Essence, Shea Butter*, Beeswax*, Capuacu Butter*, Babassu Oil*, Borage Oil*, Black Seed Oil*, Aloe Vera Powder*, Lavender*, Lemongrass*, Neroli* and Sandalwood* Essential Oils
*100% USDA Certified Organic

I am incredibly impressed by this brand and their products, and would 100% recommend to anyone. The cremes don't necessarily need to be used on the face, they can also be used on the body to help alleviate or keep skin ailments at bay, as well as soften super dry skin. One thing that I will note is that international shipping is a bit steep. If you live in the USA, shipping is free (I believe) so you're golden.

All products mentioned, and more, can be purchased through Gemstone Organic.

Have you ever tried this brand? Is there a particular product that you'd love to try of theirs?
