An Update on our Tree Planting for Earth Day

At the end of last week we announed that we have partnered with Ecologi to plant a tree for every product we sell in the run up to Earth Day on Thursday, 22nd April. Ecologi is an Environmental Organisation funding Climate Positive projects throughout the world.  Each tree we plant is part of the Eden Reforestations Project in Madagascar.   Although it's only been a few days, so far we've planted 26 trees, which is really great!  A big thanks to all our customers who have supported this endeavour!

The Sacral Chakra Drives Creativity and Inspiration

Also known as the Swadisthan, the Sacral Chakra is the source of our creativity and the inspiration we get from what Carl Jung called the ‘Collective Unconscious’.  Read on to find out how you can connect with and unlock this unending store of knowledge and talent. There is some confusion about this chakra as it has some fundamental differences to the others.  On the gross level the Sacral Chakra corresponds to the aortic plexus, which is positioned at the base of the abdomen.

When you start on a journey of self-transformation the root chakra is probably the most important chakra because it is the foundation stone of the whole system.  What does this mean?  Read on and find out. Let’s start with the subtle system and chakras.  Our bodies are the physical manifestation of an energy system that we can call the ‘subtle system’.  This system is made up of chakras and channels around which the energy flows, and in doing so, this energy controls our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies.  Everything about us and our wellbeing is looked after here.  The...

Recharging Crystals and Recharging Your Spirit

As you probably know by now, here at Chic & Raw we love crystals and gemstones!  So much so, that we put them in our luxury candles to release their beneficial energies as you burn the candle.  We take time to think about what a particular crystal is good for and which chakra will benefit from its vibrations. Many people say that you don’t choose your crystal but the crystal chooses you, based on your individual needs, and there seems to be some truth to that as we can be particularly drawn to different crystals.  Once we have a crystal,...
