Your pals here at makesy have made it super duper easy to begin including liquid gemstone extracts in your skin care line, but let’s dive deep into the amazing benefits of each new gemstone extract.

malachiteOhh malachite. You may be familiar with this precious stone, as it was once used as an ore to make copper. However, more recently it has been well known as a beautiful gemstone, with its gorgeous blue-green color! The deep color does not fade over time…and we repeat… does not fade over time (even with light exposure)!

Additionally, malachite stones shield against oxidative stress to boost cellular defenses. They are also known to stimulate the natural antioxidant pool, offering protection and potent detoxifying benefits. With its natural and stable colorant, it brings a spectacular blue lagoon color to formulations. Interesting fact: The stones used to create blue malachite liquid extract are actually sourced in central Africa.

If that isn’t impressive enough, malachite also has beneficial emotional, physical, and spiritual healing properties. The gemstone encourages quick healing, as well as provides emotional benefits by flushing out toxic, unwanted energy. See ya! It has also been known to provide inner strength and confidence during periods of change. 

Next, green peridot liquid extract comes from the ancient gemstone, peridot. Peridot was used in Egyptian jewelry dating to the time of the pharaohs. It is also referred to as chrysolite, whose Greek roots mean “golden stone,”  alluding to its gold-green brilliance. This gem is particularly amazing because it is super rich in magnesium, which is a trace element that plays a crucial role in cellular activity. green hematite

Let’s talk benefits. This gemstone active increases cellular oxygen consumption which boosts cellular energy levels (majorly awesome).

As with the other gemstones, peridot has physical, emotional, and spiritually healing characteristics. It’s a powerful cleanser, releasing and neutralizing toxins on spiritual and emotional levels. This gemstone is also known to stabilize moods, and have spiritually cleansing properties. Interesting fact: It has firm, brilliant energy that glows so bright it symbolizes abundance in life. What a gem!
