A. Our Crystal Collection is a mindfully curated, vibrationally charged, range of preblended aromatherapy elixirs. There are 7 Chakra blends, one to match each one of the body’s energy centres, and 2 more called Boosters, one for the immune system and one to assist with easy breathing. Each one of the 7 blends is charged with a specific intention: from the essential oils, the affirmation and the crystal choices. The blends are perfectly balanced to bring harmony to the body on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level.
Crystals and essential oils are seen as conduits for healing, not just for your body, but for the earth too. Their vibrations and emitted energy influence our energy flow towards greater health and wellness. This rare and precious range will be the essential jewel in your first aid kit.
A. Essential oils are concentrated plant extracts. They’re made by steaming or cold pressing various parts of a plant (flowers, bark, leaves or fruit) to capture the compounds that produce plants essence. It may take several kilograms of a plant to produce just a single bottle of essential oil.
Unique aromatic compounds give each essential oil its characteristic essence and fragrance.
Essential oils are lipid soluble and therefore are absorbed through the skin, penetrate cell walls and enter the blood stream and cross the blood barrier. They especially impact the amygdala, the emotional centre of the brain. In addition to their sublime scents, essential oils have powerful healing benefits when inhaled or applied to the surface of the skin.
Aromatherapy is the practice of using these powerful extracts for therapeutic and healing benefit. Raw essential oils need to be used with caution, it is safest to use preblended oils which are in base oils and have been blended in correct and safe to use ratios.
A. Our preblended elixirs contain a selection of 100% pure essential oils already mixed into a base preparation to enable you to use them directly on your skin without any risks or side effects.
The Tawa Labs superior, and adored, base blend of healing African Baobab, Kalahari melon, extra Virgin Cold Pressed Coconut and Abyssinian oils, elegantly envelop the mastery of each one of our precious Crystal Collection elixirs. This is the graceful holding space awaiting the cycle of vibrational release onto your body, into your soul and back out into the universe.
A. We have achieved this in 3 ways, firstly by our careful selection of only purest 100% natural essential oils. Secondly by the use of a precious crystal, again specifically selected, in each of the bottles of blends, and thirdly by the use of a specific intention and affirmation set for each blend, and then reinforced by having it printed on each of the bottled blends.
All people and particles dance to a vibration of resonance. Resonance is a way of storing energy by vibrating at a particular frequency, and everything — everything — in the universe resonates. If energy is added to something at its resonate frequency, it can store more and more of that energy by vibrating at that particular resonate frequency. Simply put this translates to, more energy = higher vibration, or, the more the energy the greater the life force energy. Our Vital Life Force energy, also known as Chi, Ki, Prana or Mana is directly linked to our wellbeing, vitality and happiness.
When using one of these high vibrational blends you are consciously choosing vibrant health and wellness.
A. The chakra system holds your body’s energy and your actions can help keep it in balance.
Each chakra holds the beliefs, emotions and memories related to specific areas of our life, organs of the body and glands of the endocrine system. The lower 3 chakras are related to earthly matters such as survival, sex, power, safety and security, creativity and vitality. The top 3 chakras are related to higher consciousness, truth, intuition and purpose. The heart chakra bridges the two worlds with empathy, love and compassion.
The Sanskrit word chakra translates to a wheel or disk. In yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda, this term refers to wheels of energy throughout the body. There are seven main chakras that align along the spine, starting from the base of the spine to the crown of the head. The spheres run along the spine, but extend through and past the front, back, and both sides of your body. Chakras are a spinning vortex of energy that is not seen by the human eye but can be seen, felt, and sensed with intuition. This invisible healing energy, called Prana, is a vital life force, which keeps us vibrant, healthy, and alive.
A. Since the beginning of time people have been turning to crystals for their healing benefits.
These beautiful treasures of Mother Earth are born from elemental energy. They capture the sun, moon, salt seas, soil and mountains and they can transmute all that healing power back to us.
Crystals have adorned the breastplates of priests and warriors, been used in shamanic service, have been guiding lights for ancient tribes, and have been stashed in the pockets of princesses, sailors, and healers for time immemorial.
In the modern world, these potent stones hold as much power. As time ticks on they only grow more & more potent and are one of the most valuable assets for helping us to reconnect to the natural world. They help us to channel our intentions, raise our vibrations, and bring out all the dormant potential of grace and beauty which each of us already have stored within.
We have all the answers inside of us, it is only a matter of remembering, a returning to our infinite and innate intelligence.
All life holds a vibration and if we can match our inner vibrations to the things we want in this world, we are able to manifest them into our lives. Crystals can help to bridge that gap with their cleansing potential and positive vibrations
