Keep reading for the low down on what crystal water bottles are, what each healing crystal achieves, and how they can have a positive impact on your overall wellness.

What are crystal water bottles?

Crystal water bottles are simply glass water bottles embedded with natural crystal or gemstone chunks in their interior. Crystal water bottles are completely safe and non-toxic, and are designed to be sustainable and re-used again and again.

You’ll find crystal water bottles fitted out with a range of different crystals known for health and healing properties, from rose quartz and clear quartz to amethyst and amazonite.

The idea behind crystal water bottles is to imbue the water inside with the energy of the specific crystal soaking within. Different crystals are used for different healing or spiritual purposes. People have long been using crystals as a part of their meditation or spiritual rituals for centuries. For example, rose quartz is often used to attract love, while amethyst is known for strength and healing.

Drinking this crystal-infused water allows you to benefit from the energy and intentions of your chosen crystal.

Are you Drinking the Right Water? Tap vs Bottled vs Filtered

Filtered water benefits

We all know how important it is to stay hydrated and get in our 8 glasses of water each day. But have you ever stopped to think about the quality of the water you’re drinking?

From tap water to bottled and filtered water, there are some pretty big differences between each one. It’s important to consider not only the quality of the water itself, but also the potential implications on our health and the environment.

If you’re wondering what kind of water is best for your family, keep reading for a full breakdown as we compare each one.

Tap water

Tap water is cheap and readily available from our very own home, making it the most common source of water for many families. However, tap water can actually contain potentially harmful pollutants that increase the risk of health problems when consumed in large quantities.

In Australia, our tap water is known to contain small traces of chemicals such as aluminium, nitrate and chlorine – even elements of heavy metals and pesticides. Our tap water can be contaminated through both natural and man-made sources on its journey to our kitchen sink, from industrial pollution to pipe contaminants and chlorine-resistant bacterias. So although it might be easily accessible, it’s definitely not the purest.

Bottled water

For those who don’t like the taste or quality of tap water, bottled water is seen as a convenient solution. However, around 40% of bottled water is actually just rebottled tap water, and may still contain small traces of the chemicals and pollutants mentioned above.

Bottled water also increases your exposure to BPA – a synthetic hormone disruptor used to create plastics. If you are opting for bottled water, be sure to look out for bottles labelled as “BPA-free” as an alternative.

Putting the health risks aside, bottled water can also have a devastating impact on the environment, falling under the umbrella of “single-use plastic” that is often discarded after consumption. With the current war on waste movement in Australia, it’s become more important than ever to reduce single-use plastics where possible.

Filtered water

If you’re searching for the purest, healthiest and most eco-friendly water solution, filtered water would have to be the winner. Drinking pure filtered water can have countless benefits for our health and wellness, from improving digestion to maintaining healthy skin.

Introducing a water filtration unit into your home helps to remove all of the contaminants from your everyday tap water, ensuring the water you consume is pollutant-free. A water filtration unit also allows you to conveniently refill your drink bottle each day from home, without having to waste plastic (and money!) on purchasing bottled water again and again.

Our water filtration units are the perfect addition to a healthy, mindful and eco-friendly kitchen. See our full range of water filtration units online, with AfterPay and ZipPay available! Don’t forget we offer free shipping Australia-wide for orders over $100.

5 Amazing Ways to use Geranium Oil for Health and Beauty!

Ways to use geranium oil

Geranium oil is probably best known for its lush floral scent, but did you know this oil also serves countless benefits for hair, skin, beauty and more?

If you’re looking for a new essential oil to add to your collection, we think geranium oil is a must-have. From DIY skin masks and hair treatments to everyday stress-relief, keep reading for 5 amazing ways to use geranium oil for health and wellness.

Geranium oil for skin

Geranium oil is widely known as one of the best oils to promote clear, healthy skin. Being a natural astringent, geranium oil is also perfect for anti-aging as it helps skin, tissues and muscles tighten and contract.

To prevent breakouts, simply add 1-2 drops of geranium oil to your facial moisturiser and apply as usual.

For spot treatments, apply geranium oil directly to the affected area after cleansing using a q-tip or cotton ball.

For anti-aging, create your own nourishing serum by filling a small amber bottle with a carrier oil like jojoba or rosehip, and add 4-5 drops of geranium oil. Massage gently into the skin each night after cleansing and moisturising.

Geranium oil for hair

Geranium oil is packed with antioxidants, which makes it ideal for repairing and strengthening damaged hair follicles and strands. Geranium oil also helps to balance the PH levels of the scalp to regulate sebum production.

Create your own moisturising hair mask by simply mixing 5-10 drops of geranium oil with ½ cup of coconut oil. Massage gently into hair from roots to ends, and leave to sit for 20-30 minutes before washing as usual.

You can also add a few drops of geranium oil to your regular shampoo to assist with deep-cleansing of the scalp.

Geranium oil for fragrance

Geranium oil is best known for its beautiful floral scent, which is why we love to use geranium oil for a natural fragrance!

Create your very own DIY perfume using a small roller bottle filled with 90 ml of a carrier oil like jojoba oil. Then, add 15 drops each of cedarwood oil, geranium oil and sage oil for a light, floral and fresh everyday fragrance.

Geranium oil for stress relief

Geranium oil is also known for its calming and grounding properties. To help reduce stress, tension and anxiety, diffuse geranium oil throughout your home or workspace using an essential oil diffuser. Or, add a few drops of geranium oil to your favourite aromatherapy jewellery to carry with you on the go.

Geranium oil for insect repellant

Not just a beauty staple, geranium oil can also help you keep your home pest-free, too! Geranium oil can help to repel small insects like fleas, mosquitoes, cockroaches, ants and ticks. Fill a spray bottle with distilled water and add a few drops of geranium oil for your very own natural insect repellent.
