Amethyst is a member of the beloved quartz family, and is a cleansing stone that evokes visionary inspiration. This stone has been revered for centuries for its ability to protect one’s sacred aura and energy and on the physical plane, supporting the immune and endocrine systems, digestive health, hormones and more. It is known as a stone of purification, encouraging greater ease and balance in the beholder’s life & awakening the Third Eye Chakra.
The color purple corresponds with power, royalty and wealth, and the word “amethyst” comes from the Greek word amethystos, which actually means “sober”, and this stone is thought to help maintain one’s sobriety as well as encourage a calm, sober mindset. Additionally, the Hebrew word for Amethyst is "ahlamah", which translates to "dream stone". Amethyst is said to support vivid, potent dreams, which makes sense, as the metaphysical energy of this gem is often tied to the spiritual realms, supporting one’s spiritual awareness, meditation practice, intuition and intellect, and helping to bring one’s vision into reality. This stone is a loyal companion for sparking creativity, deepening one’s connection to divinity, and cultivating a sense of strength, inspiration and deep healing.
Sip The Qualiteas of Amethyst:
Gotu Kola is an herbaceous plant ally, sometimes called “the herb of longevity”. It is a staple in eastern medicine and can enhance brain function, awaken the Crown Chakra, and boost liver and kidney health. Energetically, Gotu Kola can help create spaciousness and expansion within. From strengthening memory and nerve function, alleviating anxiety and stress, as well as easing insomnia and depression, Gotu Kola is a fantastic tonic for supporting your mental clarity and boasts anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial benefits.
Butterfly Pea Flower is an extraordinary beauty enhancer, nootropic and memory booster. It is collagen-producing for our skin, hair and nails, boosting blood flow to our scalp and strengthening hair follicles. It also reduces the appearance of skin inflammation, wrinkles and soothes our complexion. Butterfly Pea Flower supports brain health and cognitive function, provides increased energy and productivity with a sense of ease and relaxation, supports digestion, weight management and flushes toxins out of the body. Butterfly Pea Flower tonifies and strengthens our sensual energy and purifies our being from within.
Hibiscus is a tart, antioxidant-rich herb that supports the regeneration and revitalization of our cells, and nourishes the health of our blood and circulation. You can think of it as an immunity powerhouse. Specifically, it helps lower blood pressure and cuts fat from the blood. It also boosts liver health and possesses antibacterial qualities. It is another fantastic ally for nourishing the gut and supporting weight loss, to encourage slimming and eliminate bloating.
Rose Petals have been used medicinally in China and India for thousands of years. They bring a lush bouquet of vitamins A, C, and E, enhancing inner and outer glow. The luxurious rose is revered for the healing effect it has on the heart, digestion, and in beautifying the skin from the inside out. Roses are high in antioxidants quercetin and ellagic acid, which contribute to bright, lucid skin, and a buoyant heart.
Lemongrass contains three powerful compounds called chlorogenic acid, isoorientin, among others, that battle free radicals, protecting the cells from damage caused by stress, age, and various degenerative health conditions. It can help prevent cavities and oral infections, alleviate stress and promote ease, and support the immune system.
