TCM April: 18 Essentials For A Month of Tenderness Toward Self

No, it’s not the ‘month of love’ and Mother’s Day is still a month away, but we’re feeling pink this April and have filled this month’s The Shop with the color of rose quartz.

According to Crystal Vaults, rose quartz “carries a soft feminine energy of compassion and peace, tenderness and healing, nourishment and comfort. It speaks directly to the heart chakra, dissolving emotional wounds, fears and resentments, and circulates a divine loving energy throughout the entire aura. Reawakening the heart to its own innate love, it provides a deep sense of personal fulfillment and contentment, allowing one the capacity to truly give and receive love from others.”

In a season where terms like self-love and self-care veer dangerously toward cliche territory, we won’t let all the marketing dissuade us – or you – from that journal, skincare moment or bath. Connecting more authentically with what’s happening in our own hearts and minds empowers us to connect more meaningfully with others and live well on a more holistic level.

We hope our rosy pink theme inspires a little meditation on the quote above this month. Add to that a rose quartz skin roller, a pair of woolly pink Allbirds, and Agent Nateur’s luxe, rose-infused skin oil and you’ve got a recipe a mindfully tender first month of spring…
