Botanical and Mineral Alchemy: Moonstone + Rose

Devon 1 Comment

Explore the metaphysical properties of moonstone + rose for healing, introspection, clarity, and vision. A botanical and mineral duo for encouragement.

This post is part of an ongoing collaboration with Hawkhouse, a designer of raw mineral jewelry.  This collaboration seeks to explore the metaphysical properties of minerals and botanicals and how those properties may influence our emotional and spiritual beings.

al·chem·y:  a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation or both; the transformation of matter.

The unique, if intangible, qualities of minerals and botanicals can transform our emotional and spiritual selves in immensely profound ways.

Moonstone + Rose

Transformation is a peculiar thing.  Our individual experiences inform our physical, emotional, and spiritual beings, molding and sculpting our distinctive characteristic.  Sometimes we transform outwardly – hair color, tattoos, weight loss.  But, perhaps the greatest transformations we make are more ephemeral.  The transformation of our inward selves.  For those seeking light on their inward journey, rose and moonstone are the alchemical windows to the soul.

Moonstone

Moonstone is a mineral in the feldspar family, often recognized by its milky white opacity.  It feels cool to the touch and a characteristic called adularescence makes moonstone appear almost lit from within.  Associated with the moon and the crown chakra, moonstone aids dreamwork and visions, deters nightmares and encourages wisdom.  It is believed to facilitate healing and open the heart in a thoughtful, protective manner.  Passion, love, and fertility are fostered by moonstone.  It may shed light on the forgotten and connect us more deeply with the earth and moon cycles.

Rose

Rose is a healer of the spirit.  Taken in floral essence form, rose encourages healing from trauma and encourages growth after being “cut back” or “torn down”. It rids the spirit of fear and nurtures courage. From an aromatherapeutic standpoint, we look to rose for providing a sense of calm introspection and reduced anxiety.  It is often a scent that is wrapped in nostalgia, leading me to believe that it fosters a connection to the past without any negative strings attached.

Alchemy of Moonstone + Rose

Both moonstone and rose are encouraging, nurturing, and tender vital forces.  Those that employ the use of these minerals and botanicals may experience a greater sense of calmness, reassurance, strength, and perseverance.  In that moonstone is aligned with the crown chakra, I especially love wearing these earrings.  Rose can be worn as a hydrosol or essential oil based perfume, consumed in teas, tinctures, or delicious foods, or taken as a flower essence like this.
