Last year I spoke about different gemstones that are good for the body, but they are also good for your tea water. Water is very sensitive and can take on vibrational energies, the same goes for plants (no wonder we sing and talk to them!).
If this is new to you check out my previous posts on maifan stones , gemstones and favorite gemstones. They will give you some background, but feel free to stick around to learn more about Rose Quartz (and what it can do for your tea).
It is a pink stone related to the quartz family, along with other such as amethyst and aventurine. This stone in particular can be called a love stone. How perfect is that for the water which makes us our dear tea?
Its subtle pink color is perfect for featuring in April with with Cherry Blossoms blooming in Japan for spring. You may be wondering why this precise stone, so let’s get into what it can do for us with tea (and in our day to day life).
Think of your mom, or even your grandmother, these people in our lives are just comforting being around them. It makes you feel loved and cared for.
For women this extra energy is gives us that big hug that makes us feel appreciated for all that we do. For men (we didn’t forget you), it balances out the ying and yang. Giving you that other side that you need (but maybe don’t want to say you need. Shhh we won’t tell anyone) by adding in a little feminine energy to the mix.
Think of this as instant self-care or affirmations (but in your tea!). A blanket of warmth loving energy comes through in the cup which makes it perfect for end of the day (or grounding a friend who is feeling down).
I believe that we don’t hear that we are loved enough throughout our lived ( #truth ), and want to feel that warmth. Boil your water with rose quarts in the kettle to give yourself some love. For extra credit, use this tea during your self-care time and feel that love wash over you.
As mentioned earlier, Rose Quartz is a balancing stone. We need both feminine and masculine energies to feel grounded and balanced throughout our lives. Also, it helps with stress and anxiety (bonus!) just by bringing you into balance. Infusing your tea water with stones is a simple way to get that in there with no fuss!
Happy Mother’s Day everyone (even to those fur-baby mom’s out there). Only one post this week, so that I can get some cleaning done for my mom (she loves this idea). Welcome to the new Tea Journey, I hope you love it. I can not wait for June 10 (7 Year Blog-versary) to celebrate this milestone with you! Cheers my loves!
