The benefits of Rose Quartz - the crystal of Venus, goddess of love and beauty.

The Rose Quartz crystal ranges from very pale pink to deep bright pink and is known as the stone of universal love. It is believed to help open up your heart and attract love of every kind - self-love, familial love, friendship love, love for humanity or romantic love.

Rose Quartz is known for its heart healing properties. The love and healing vibrations help replace toxic emotions and blockages that clogs the heart chakra and replaces it with the energy of love. 

According to the practice of Feng Shui, placing Rose Quartz crystals in your bedroom helps promote nourishing and loving Chi in that area. Carrying Rose Quartz in your purse, pocket or wearing Rose Quartz jewelry can help release pain and negative emotions and allow loving energy to permeate.

Clasp Rose Quartz in the palm of your hand and meditate with it over your heart chakra or sleep with a piece under your pillow to help manifest matters of the heart into your dreams.

GingerChi Opens NYC Shop

 

Away from the hustle and bustle of Chinatown, on the outskirts of Lower East Side it made perfect sense that an artisinal beauty line that combines eastern philosophies and western practices set up a brick and mortar shop. 
 
Located at Shop 54W Henry Street, between Catherine and Market, GingerChi can now display it's a full line of beauty, bath/lifestyle productthat combines fresh ginger oil and other plant essential oils for customers to come in touch, smell and discover.

Ginger known for healing and detoxifying benefits also has around 40 antioxidant compounds. GingerChi has tapped into these antioxidants to prevent free radical damage, help protect against aging, even skin tone and promote skin elasticity. Packed with vitamins, minerals and fatty acids, other benefits of ginger include toning and prevention of cellulite as well as stimulate hair growth.

 Chi, or Qi (pronounced CHEE) is a Chinese word for the ‘life force’ inherent in all things.

Ginger + Chi, is about utilizing plant based ingredients and working with the body’s natural self-regulating system to naturally create balance for Chi to flow freely so beauty can radiate from within.

 The new GingerChi shop, inspired by a 1930’s utilitarian medical laboratory with splashes of fresh greenery, a center bench of white marble and simple industrial fixtures, exudes a Zen-like quality of peacefulness and calm.

 The shelves are lined with various Chi-enhancing face, body and well-being regimens along with unique skincare tools such as meridian dry brushes, organic muslin face cloths and the popular GingerChi jade rollers and guashas. In ancient China, it is said Empresses used jade to maintain their youth and beauty. A mask made with jade beads, is not only beautiful and intricate but the effects of the cool healing stones over tired eyes and forehead, is indeed a luxurious way to smooth away lines and furrows.

 True Beauty is not about quick fixes and expensive procedures. GingerChi believes it is through a path of mindfulness, of what we put on our skins and in our bodies, our awareness of our environment and how we live our lives.

 We invite you to drop by, have some tea and ginger treats and discover “The way of Beauty’ with GingerChi.

 

 

The key to health, vitality and beauty is in your hands

The skin that holds our body together is all we have. Skin is the body’s first line of defense and reveals a lot about one’s health. In order to keep the skin healthy here are some important facts to consider:

  • The skin is the largest most important eliminative organ in the body and is responsible for one quarter of the body’s detoxification each day
  • The skin eliminates over one pound of waste acids each day in the average adult, most of it through the sweat glands
  • The skin is known also as our third kidney
  • The skin receives one third of all the blood circulated in the body
  • The skin the first to show signs of imbalance or deficiency

Maintaining the flow of Chi, balancing the absorption of nutrients with the elimination of waste through detoxification, is vital to health and beauty.

 "Beautiful skin requires commitment, not a miracle." - Erno Lazio

Detoxification is performed by a number of organs, glands, and transportation systems, including the lymphatic system. Just below our skin, the lymphatic system is a network of vessels that carry nutrients to cells and remove toxins. 

Dry Brushing is a swift and powerful way to enhance the detoxification process. Not only can Dry Brushing be used as a gentle massage to stimulate the organs, it can also help with the elimination of toxins through the skin for improved circulation and a rejuvenated appearance.

How to Dry Brush

Included with our Sisal and Hand-held Jute Brushes are a set of easy to follow instructions. Starting at the feet, up the legs then up the back and the arms. Followed by circular movements around the stomach area, and over the breast and arm-pit area towards the heart and chest area where the lymph system drains. 

Dry Brushing should be done "dry" before showering and bathing. Because the skin has been exfoliated after bathing, application of moisturizer, lotion or body oil can easily be absorbed. That is why we include with our brushes, a sample of our Replenishing Juniper Body Oil containing oils that can help tone and reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Regular use of Dry Brushing can help stimulate and accelerate the removal of toxins through the lymph nodes. The routine takes only 5 to 10 minutes and should be incorporated into one’s regular beauty regime for optimal health, energy as well as wonderful looking skin.

Benefits

  • Helps reduce the appearance of cellulite
  • Purifies the lymphatic system
  • Enhances the function of the nervous system
  • Exfoliate dead skin layer
  • Aids in digestion 
  • Stimulates the hormone and oil-producing glands 
  • Helps the elasticity of the skin
  • Strengthens the immune system
  • Tones the muscles
  • Improves circulation

Selecting your Dry Brush

Make sure your brush has natural bristles and not plastic. Coarse bristles, like the Sisal Brush, is perfect when it comes to exfoliation. It may be a bit harsh on thinner and less exposed skin, especially areas around the neck, stomach and breast area. These also happen to be prime spots for lymphatic drainage, particularly the arm pits and inner thigh areas. It is recommended to use gentle brush strokes in the direction towards the heart and lymph nodes, allowing toxins to be released.

We highly recommend using both the Sisal and the Hand-held Jute, in order to cover all areas of the body comfortably. The Sisal with cotton handle can help reach the back areas as well as the legs and feet. For the more sensitive areas, the Hand-held Jute fits nicely in the palm, allowing more control over the amount of pressure exerted.

Limited time only! Use discount code DRYBRUSH40 for 40% off Sisal Brush if purchased together with the new Hand-held Jute Brush!

        Summer Solutions for a more beautiful you.

        As we move into the hottest days of summer when yang energy is at its peak, take time to pay special attention to your body, skin and hair. While extreme elements such as the sun, sea and those pesky bugs play havoc as summer gets under way, here are few tips on how a little extra effort and mindfulness can help you optimize your Chi for a more beautiful you.  

        At GingerChi, we are about the flow of Chi, harmony and balance. When there is excess of yin or yang, obstruction and stagnation occurs. You may feel disorientated. You may experience more break-outs than usual. Your skin, hair and nails look and feel dehydrated. In order to create a healthy flow of Chi for this yang season, we need to detox and rejuvenate to find balance in our systems.

        • Oil Pulling. It not only helps with oral health, reduces stains but helps ‘Pull’ toxins from the body. Notice the difference in your mouth and even in your skin after a week of this revitalizing morning routine.
        • If you do not already have an exercise program, the easy and quick meditative 5 Tibetan Rites can do wonders when incorporated to your daily routine.
        • Go for a walk. It not only great way to increase your Vitamin D intake but helps with the lungs, mind, but enhances your mood and adrenals.
        • Have a break from Gluten. It helps clear brain fog, improve digestion and stomach acid production, adrenal hormone metabolism and liver detoxification. Try self-massage techniques and reflexology to get your Chi moving.
        • Dry Brushing. It helps invigorate the body (better than caffeine) and detoxifies. You’ll not only feel energized but dry brushing exfoliates dead skin cells and promotes cell regeneration to improve skin tone.
        • Hydrate. Keep coffee drinking to a minimum. Consume plenty of water and cooling teas.
        • Take time to meditate. Even a few breaths of long and short breaths, breathing out stress and breathing in calm, will help clear brain fog and bring about a more powerful and focused awareness the whole day long.

         

        Start your day and end with your day with our Bath and Shower Infusion Oil of Fresh Ginger Root, Pepper Mint, Lavender and Rosemary Oil to help open your lungs, clear your mind and bring balance.

        The summer can take a toll on our nails with endless manicures and pedicures. Give your dry nails and flaky cuticles a short break. Treat them to our nourishing Nail Repair Serum.

        Tame your summer Frizz with our Penetrating Shine Serum. Endless summer days will zap moisture from scalp leaving it dry and oily. Massage in a generous amount for an overnight scalp treatment or use a few drops on ends to control any fly-away's. Your hair and scalp will thank you!

        If the heat of summer leaves you feeling sluggish, try our Chi Boost Energy Stick Roll On Energy Booster. The EO blends will awaken your senses and revitalize your chi!

        SPRING INTO BEAUTY

        Spring is a time of new beginnings, we think of the first flowers bursting through the earth, cherry blossom, cleaning our homes in a traditional ‘spring clean’ and throwing opening the windows to let the fresh spring air in. Getting back out in nature, taking a deep breath and embracing all the wonderful possibilities for the rest of the year can lift your chi to a new level of positive.

        Changing our beauty regime as the seasons change helps keep our chi optional and our hair and skin in top condition. Spring is the time of year when we can begin to dare to go bare. Snow is a distant memory and just maybe, we can reveal our arms and legs to the world after months of being hidden away under layers of clothes.

        Like anything hidden for so long, our bodies can use a spring clean from the dry winter season sapping the moisture from the environment and taking its toll on our skin and hair. Now is the perfect time for a mini detox or a head-to-toe body scrub to get rid of those dead skin cells or using a deep penetrating oil to moisturize and replenish the chi of your skin. And, it’s a great time for a 'ginger' face mask!

        Try This Simple Ginger Face Mask for Radiant Skin


        • Take a piece of ginger and grate it to form a paste.
        • Squeeze the ginger paste until it forms a ginger juice.
        • Mix 1 tbsp ginger juice with 2 tbsp rosewater, & 1/2 tbsp honey.
        • Mix it well apply evenly on your face and neck with a cotton pad.
        • Rinse off after 20 minutes using warm water for glowing skin

         

        Spring also prompts us to change our diet to include fresh spring vegetables as they become more abundant. Trade in hot soups for cool salads or super nutrient packed green drinks and smoothies – with a ginger infusion of course! Try adding grated ginger to your meals and salad dressings - it will help fire up your body's natural ability to detoxify by aiding digestion and helping eliminate toxins. And try our wonderful 'Organic Cleanse Tea' - perfect for your spring detox!

        Check out some of our ‘Spring’ beauty specials that will help you embrace the season looking your very best and enjoy a 30% discount. Offer ends April 17th, 2017.
