We have deemed March "Crystal Month" here at The Kai Life...and friends we are going to dive in DEEP. It's been a cold, cold winter and we are craving some major spiritual energy.
We're breaking down these beauties from beginner tips, to practicing yoga with crystals, to choosing crystals, to cleansing and charging your crystals. We'll be documenting our journey of drinking out of a gemstone-infused water bottle for a month and playing with crystals during the new and full moon. We'll also be getting chatty with the educators and creators of some of the most relevant brands bringing us the crystal items that our world is currently obsessing over.
Be sure to sign up for The Kai Life Love Letter HERE so that you don't miss a single gem (see what we did there?!).
SORRY, I CAN'T. I HAVE TO CHARGE MY CRYSTALS.

Meet our new favorite way to stay hydrated.
"The use of gems to vitalize water is a traditional art dating from ancient Greece and practiced for millennia. Recently, this age old tradition has been rediscovered and tailored for the modern world.
Gemstones have the unique ability to store energy. Each type of gem, by nature, has a unique energetic charge and one-of-a-kind vibration and therefore affects the water in a unique way. The gems inside Gem-Water VitaJuwel vials transfer their energy to the water that surrounds the vial improving the water’s vitalization level. The line is masterfully crafted and engineered to enhance everyday tap or filtered water using the energy of gemstones enhanced in elegant glass vessels for on-the-go, tabletop and single-serve use.
The gemstones enliven your water, restoring some of its properties to levels comparable to actual spring water. Gem-Water offers a modern, beautiful, handmade way to infuse water with gems, enhancing the energy."
Jenny's going to be documenting her journey of drinking out of a Gem-Water bottle for a month!

CROWN WORKS CRYSTAL COMB
Our absolute favorite new ritual.
"Humans have long been adorning themselves, their homes and places of worship with gemstones, both for their beauty and for their ability to enhance well-being. The comb is an ancient matriarchal symbol, signaling new growth, fresh life and renewal.
Research supports that intentional use of gemstones and crystals have healing and transformative effects on humans’ emotional and mental state, chakras, skin and hair. Meditative movement through the hair is soothing to the nervous system, while stimulating blood flow to the scalp, improving circulation, hair growth, and skin health.
When you use CrystalCombs to comb your hair, you are using the power of gemstone energy to influence your aura and entire energetic system. You can also use the CrystalCombs for energy and body work."
