Throughout my teens and 20s I was stuck in a vicious cycle of poor mental health and unhealthy coping mechanisms. It was a pattern of self-destruction that brought me to my knees and completely disconnected me from myself. When I hit my rock bottom, I knew things drastically needed to change and the only person who could save me was myself. I needed a complete overhaul, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
Along with professional supports I began to look for complimentary solutions and emerged myself in self-help books, meditation, healing crystals and positive affirmations. In time, as I reconnected with my true self the transformation was undeniable, and this is where my love affair with holistic’s began.
As we face a mental health crisis, I wanted to share things that had helped me in my darkest days. Inspired by my personal experience of healing crystals and affirmations and their positive effects, I started to design wellness gifts purposefully designed for your self-care needs.
This is where Light and Lurve was born.
Think of self-care as self-investment. We get so engrossed in our lives and helping others that we often forget about ourselves. But you can’t give from an empty cup that’s why it’s so important to invest in ourselves, so our cup is so full its overflowing. Self-care is the practise of looking after ourselves. Its about knowing when to take time out for ourselves and what is available to us. Everyone deserves to indulge in small luxuries that add a little sparkle to our lives and nourish us with love.
Light and Lurve uses a combination of scents, healing crystals and positive affirmations creating a self-care gift anyone can benefit from.
How it all works
As scents sends signals to our limbic system which is the
sector of our brain that controls emotion and memory. They have the ability to completely
transform our mood, energy, and productivity. Considering the impact scents can
have on us Light and Lurve have carefully picked each scent to enhance the
state which we want to achieve with each candle.
Healing crystal practises have been used throughout history
from the 4th millennium BC the time of the Sumerians, to the ancient Egyptians,
to the ancient Greeks and is becoming widely used within mainstream markets
today. Anecdotally, crystals have been associated with different areas of
self-healing. So, by matching scents with certain crystals, it helps amplify the
effects it has on our wellbeing.
The positive affirmations which accompany our candles are
positive statements that can help you to challenge and overcome self-sabotaging
and negative thoughts. When you repeat them often, and believe in them, you can
start to make positive changes. Just as we do repetitive exercises to improve
our physical health, affirmations are like exercises for our mindset. Positive
mental repetitions can reprogram thinking patterns so that, over time, we begin
to think and act differently.
