Reiki Infused Skincare
Hello, my lovelies! With 2 days to go until our mini-rebrand, I wanted to share an insight into reiki, how I apply this beautiful practice to my products and more importantly, why. I will also be sharing a bit about how I came to deciding to make this little pivot with the brand, making the reiki element a bigger focus of Temple de Luna.
So, my products are reiki infused... but what does that even mean? I thought it would be best to start off with a little introduction to reiki & what it is. For anyone new to reiki, it is a practice of energy healing.
The practitioner channels Universal Life Force Energy and directs this to the person receiving healing. In a typical reiki session, the practitioner may take a hands-off approach where they place their hands just above the body of the receiver. Some practitioners may gently place their hands on areas of the body but this can differ amongst practitioners. The healing energy makes its way through the body and is said to assist the body in its natural healing processes, whilst helping to improve emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing. Many people who have had reiki have reported that it has helped relieve emotional stress and induce deep relaxation. Reiki is also said to promote overall wellbeing in the mind and body.
Some practitioners may use crystals during reiki as the energy and vibrations from these crystals can aid in the healing, this is not a requirement of a reiki practitioner or for the session but can certainly offer additional benefits!
I have been certified for a number of years at reiki level 2, and have mainly only practised reiki on myself, friends, family & pets. This is because my main way of practising reiki is through my products. Infusing each and every batch of the range with reiki is a beautiful and unique part of my process and it's something I've done since before I even launched Temple de Luna! During this process, I am setting potent, healing intentions for your overall wellbeing and relaxation. I also set intentions for self-love, confidence and relaxation. Channelling reiki into each batch lets me raise the vibration of each product and infuse them with these beautiful intentions. Each time my products are used, these beautiful healing vibrations are absorbed by the skin and into your body. My products have been designed to work at a physical level for your skin, with incredible ingredients and beautiful formulas, and at an energetic level to soothe your soul and promoting love, relaxation & wellbeing.
So why am I shouting louder about this now? Truth be told, I was afraid that this part of Temple de Luna may be too "woo woo" for people. I get it's not necessarily everyone's cup of tea, but the beauty of reiki is that you don't have to believe in it to receive the benefits of it. If you've followed Temple de Luna for a while, you may have seen the odd post here and there with information about it, but it was never something I actively shouted about. I realised recently that this has been holding me back slightly, I felt as though I was keeping an authentic, beautiful part of the business in the shadows for fear of how it may come across to others. This realisation prompted me to do some inner work around it, some work around my blocks and fears and through that I was lead to this new chapter of Temple de Luna.
Turning the focus of Temple de Luna to the reiki element of the products means that going forward I'll be sharing lots more on reiki, why it belongs in skincare, as well as a bigger focus on wellbeing, relaxation and nourishing our whole selves. Please let me know if you have anything, in particular, you'd like me to share more on!
I am so excited to have you along as I take Temple de Luna through this journey and I am so excited for the future. Look out for our new website launch this Saturday 14th August, and keep your eyes peeled for an update on our socials about a certain % off for the weekend!
Until next week's blog,
