NEW BRAND ALERT : BIRTHSTONE SCENTS

Since time immemorial, each month of the year has been associated with a precious stone. Ancient cultures believed that wearing a gem during its assigned month heightened its powers... 
I'd like to introduce you to Birthstone Scents, a new line of twelve talisman fragrances inspired by this ancient tradition. Each scent has been infused with its gem for a full lunar cycle to harness the power of the stone to heal and protect. 
Created in Los Angeles, a partnership between gemologists and renowned perfumers, the fragrances are developed with the utmost care and integrity. 
Birthstone Scents are exclusively made with clean and natural ingredients that were extracted by steam, cold pressing, and/or carbon dioxide extraction. Using pure essential oils, the scents are non-toxic, sustainable, cruelty free, paraben free, phthalate free, sulfate free and never tested on animals.
 
The packaging is gorgeous, too.

Happy Birthday to all the January babies out there! Here's a little bit about your birthstone: Garnet.
Garnet has a long history in jewelry and has been prized as an ornamental jewel, worn for centuries as a protective and powerful talisman. It is the "carbuncle" of ancients.  The carbuncle was thought to be one of the four precious stones to be given to King Solomon by God.  Garnets decorated the throats of Egyptians and were entombed for prized possessions in their afterlife. Garnet adorned the wrists and shoulders of ancient Greeks, were used as signet rings in ancient Rome and were cherished and respected by many kings.
