Turquoise and Golden Peach Agate Adjustable Hemp Bracelet This is the spoiler and I am so happy with this! This bracelet has a row turquoise and golden peach agate beads, alternating between the colors. These beads are strung in a golden brown hemp cord with a silver tone oval button and has two loops for adjustable. This is such a beautiful bracelet, as the bright blue shade of turquoise works beautifully with the golden color of agate ~ which I thought were amber beads at first, as that is how close the shade is ~ with the hemp cord. This bracelet measures 3/8 inches in width and 11 inches long, with the first toggle opening at 7 1/4 inches and the 2nd at 8 3/4 “. This is just a fun bracelet and looking forward to August’s box, this will be a great layering piece! RV $45.00
Turquoise: 5th Chakra ~ Throat Chakra Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man’s history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors… Turquoise strengthens the meridians of the body and the subtle energy fields, enhancing communication between the physical and spiritual worlds. Placed on the Third Eye, it supports intuition and meditation. On the Throat Chakra, it releases old vows, inhibitions, and allows the soul to express itself once more. It explores past lives and regards fate as ongoing and dependant on one’s action at any moment. Turquoise is a stone for finding wholeness and truth, and communicating and manifesting those qualities. It stimulates and harmonizes the Throat Chakra, making it easier to articulate and bring forth one’s deepest wisdom. source
Golden Peach Agate helps promote truth, intelligence, longevity, happiness and wealth. It can be used to help reduce and eliminate fear and also aid in communication.
Hemp I have to get up on my soap box here as I have written about hemp before in my blog.. I will repeat it here as I still love hemp! Hemp has gotten a bad name in the last century or so, because people associate it with marijuana. But it wasn’t like that in the past ~ It has been cultivated for 12,000 years as a major food, fuel and fiber product. America used to grow hemp and it was used to make rope, fabric and paper and in some states, you had to grow hemp and if you didn’t, you would go to jail! Back in the days of King Henry Henry VIII , if you were a farmer, you were encouraged to grow hemp, as it was used for their Naval Fleet ~ from rope, riggings and sails. That is how valuable that resource is. Hemp is an amazing renewable resource and it can be used for anything ~ I’ve read about how “plastic” can be made from hemp and Henry Ford and Rudolph Diesel used hemp to create biomass fuel ~ and this in the late 19th and early 20th Century.
Can you tell I am a HUGE hemp fan? I think if we can ever get over the smear campaign in the 20th century with hemp (Reefer Madness, anyone?), it will become a huge player in newable fuels and to get us off the archaic fossil fuels that we are so dependent on. If you want to read more about hemp and how great it is, check out this site www.hemp.com So, I am really happy to get hemp products ~ they are few and far between, but I do think that the future will show a resurgence of hemp products.
Sacred Summer Sandalwood, Turquoise & Rose Quartz Pendant Necklace OMGERD! This is amazing. This 34 inch long necklace with a HUGE 1.5 inch pendant drop ~ so 35 1/2 inches in total ~ is fab 🙂 The pendant is solid thick rose quartz disk ~ a delicate pink shade ~ and hangs from a strand of beads made from sandalwood, turquoise and either moonstone or white quartz ~ this necklace is a show stopper! Even using two small crystal clear quartz beads to help anchor the pendant ~ the attention to detail and the presentation of this necklace is amazing. I love it. The sandalwood has that nice, lovely soothing scent of incense and yeah, I love this necklace ~ I am so happy I purchased this box! RV $136.00
Sandalwood For over 4,000 years, sandalwood has been used to help calm and clear the mind of negativity. It helps bring deep states of relaxation and relaxes the heart and throat chakras. It helps aid in mental clarity and opening the Third Eye, awaking intelligence and lifting depression.
Rose Quartz ~ Primary Chakra: Heart-Chakra Rose Quartz is the stone for unconditional love. It helps open the heart to all love ~ self, family, friends, romantic. Quartz stones have a high energy vibe, but it is also soothing and calming. This energy helps bring about empathy, forgiveness, reconciliation and removes anger, envy and resentment. It also us to heal and remove those negative emotions. Rose Quartz also can attract romantic love, add loving energy into current relationships and can help soothe and heal a broken heart.
