If you’re not familiar, gemstones (precious stones) have been known in Indian Mythology to assist in healing, particularly for their abilities to increase a healthy glow and energy to those that use them. In addition, in Indian Mythology gemstones were thought to also ward off evil (as well as increase/promote healing to occur). So the use of gemstones is not anything new, it’s truly been utilized throughout history for a LONG time. Because gemstones have been held to a high standard as far as promoting healing and other energetic beliefs that they hold, they’ve been valued throughout history for benefits that many other types of stones just haven’t been able to do.
One of the ways that historians have even found in their findings is that gemstones were being used for skin care purposes many years ago. However, one of the biggest differences between now and then is many gemstones and the use of them for skincare were only accessible to those that were high in society rankings. Since gemstones are natural stones, they’re able to provide natural healing that’s incredibly powerful for those that use them. Even though the use of gemstones for the skin wasn’t accessible to everyone throughout history, anyone can utilize them in their skincare now.
