Building on the awesomeness of my Rose Quartz Soap, “How Deep is your Love?” I feel like I have to own up to my latest obsession – Crystals. Oh wait, you know that one. OK. (breathe deep) It’s the Bee Gees. In particular, I’m slightly obsessed with the track ‘Nights on Broadway’ – it’s the harmonies! I play this song heaps at home and I know Chris loves it wayyyy less than I do.
Interestingly, when you use the Google machine you find all sorts of weird shit that people think this song is about. One theory is that it’s about a stalker. But I think not. I think it’s about someone who, in a room full of strangers (you know you sung that right), suddenly notices someone he or she once knew and loved, an old love, standing across the room. It’s about an old love affair and it’s one that has finished. But in that moment we remember. But have we really moved on? Or do we just want one more glimpse of what could have been?
I mean we’ve all had THOSE relationships – the ones where we fell hard and strong, we were head over heels thinking this one is it! But alas, there came a break up. We’ve also all had those accidential meetings (or glimpses) of our past loves, and wondered how they moved on, or even if they have.
Each piece of this magic soap has 3 tumble stones on top, which bring to your life the power of love and healing. Rose quartz has been used in love rituals and ceremonies for centuries, and remains the stone of the hopeless romantic. Clear Quartz is about healing and amplifies any energy it is near.
As a variety of quartz, this heart-based soap will program your bath water to hold the energy of love. As the water envelopes your body and replenishes your skin, you can place your Clear or Rose Quartz stones on your heart and welcome the loving energy.
The pairing of Clear & Rose Quartz will bring you deep inner healing, enhancing self-love, self-trust, self-worth and self-confidence. They can be used together to attract love into your life and maintain a happy loving relationship.
While using your soap you can incorporate this inspiring affirmation:
"I open my heart to give and receive love. My experiences have made me who I am and I am thankful and healed."
Used together, the Clear & Rose Quartz will open your heart to compassion for yourself and for others, and raises self-esteem. You may find you are not focussing on the negatives such guilt. You will feel your emotions more ‘in-tune and balanced’, your stress should decrease and I hope you feel peace and happiness.
It is totally safe and easy to bring Clear & Rose Quartz into your bath water to surround yourself with the energy of these beautiful stones.
(some crystals aren't so good in water. Don't ask me how I know)
This soap is the same scent as “How Deep is your Love?” – it is alluring and bursting with floral and citrus notes, highlighted by mandarin and bergamot with classic florals rose and jasmine and finished with sensual musk and patchouli. My soap recipe is chock full of organic shea butter, loads of kaolin clay, bamboo silk and coconut cream. All JOURNEY soaps are vegan, unless otherwise specified.
And in the spirit of honesty and transparency yes I do sing this song in the bath. I even know the harmonies off by heart now.
Shine bright, Pauline xoxo
