To make the Lavender Hinoki Peace Aura Mist, we soak lavender buds in high proof organic alcohol for a week to turn it into a fragrant lavender extract, and then add Hinoki (Japanese Cypress) essential oil to blend the fragrance of lavender with the calm of walking through a wooded forest. I’ve then added Rose Quartz, Amethyst and Moonstone gem essences to make you feel loved and protected and nurtured, Black Tourmaline gem essence to ground you, and Clear Quartz gem essence to supercharge this mist.
Mist your crown of head, third eye, throat (external), heart, palms and soles of feet (if accessible) 5x a day to feel a sense of inner calm and peace.
Ingredient Deep Dive
🌲Lavender: Lavender has traditionally been used to invoke peace, rest and relaxation. In European herbal magic traditions, it is common used in love spells, to lift depression, to purify and protect against the evil eye. By soaking the lavender buds for a week in high proof alcohol, we distill more of the botanical and magical properties of the plant into the mist, helping create for you a greater state of calm and peace. We also add lavender essential oil to the mixture to further enhance the qualities of lavender here.
🌲Hinoki: Hinoki is also known as Japanese Cypress, and is widely loved in Japan. Hinoki wood is used to manufacture many Japanese bath and spa products. The terpene components of Hinoki essential oil have been argued to be deeply restorative and deeply healing, according to the Japanese research field of “Shinrin Yoku”, which argues that simply hanging out in the forest doing absolutely nothing is deeply healing to all psyches.
🌲Rose Quartz Gem Essence: I selected Rose Quartz for the following reasons: is calming for the mind, assisting one in releasing worry, fear, anxiety and past emotional trauma. It clears the emotional body of ego-driven patterns and can help pone feel more open to receiving and sharing love, compassion and kindness.
🌲Amethyst Gem Essence - Amethyst is commonly prescribed by energy healers to help soothe anxiety and to bring peace and calm. It helps the user to feel safe and protected. When used to stimulate your inner intuition and wisdom, it also helps with releasing negative attachments. Amethyst can be a powerful addition to your healing energy rituals.
🌲Clear Quartz Gem Essence: Clear Quartz is known as the "master healer" crystal, probably because it enhances the intentions and work of everything around it. When worked with personally with meditative practices, it helps too instantly boost energy, to filter against negativity and to transform critical words and harm. It helps to increase protective qualities of crystals, and to provide a feeling of safety, thus aiding relaxation and sleep.
🌲Black Tourmaline Gem Essence: Black Tourmaline crystals are ideal for psychic protection for anyone who must work or live in challenging places or circumstances. Carrying or meditating with one of these stones can keep one’s auric field clear of imbalance, even in the presence of destructive energies. Black Tourmaline is also one of the most gentle of Black protective crystals.
🌲 Moonstone Gem Essence: Moonstone is ideal for you to tap into your divine feminine energy, intuition and inner peace. It is an excellent talisman for the inward journey, and meditation with it can take one deep into the self.
Peaceful and calm sensations
Feel comforted & emotionally soothed
May help with anxiety
Instructions: For best results, mist 5x a day on all available chakra points (crown of head, between brows, throat (external), heart), palms of hands and soles of feet if accessible.
Before misting, take three deep breaths. After misting, take another three deep breaths.
If you're feeling shattered and anxious right now (and who isn't, with all the drama of the past year?), try this mist. It's based on familiar, calming lavender, but the hinoki brings in a fresh, natural evergreen scent that hints at a pine forest. Good for when you need to stop, take a deep breath, and ground yourself. Which is often, if you're me. I'd recommend this to anyone who struggles with anxiety.

Magic sleep elixir for sleepless adults and toddlers!
This mist is a miracle! It smells lovely, of course, the most pure lavender smell, like a field full of lavender, but even better it puts my energetic, sleepless toddler straight to sleep! The first night I used it, he was, as usual, running wild - dancing around the room, shouting at the top of his lungs - it was going to be a long night. I sprayed some on the soles of his feet and he was instantly calm, as if I had flicked a switch. Within five minutes, he was deep asleep. And this is a child who takes hours to drift off. He slept for 12 hours straight - no waking, no nightmares. I notice it too - I spray it and immediately feel calm, my anxiety releases, and within five minutes my eye-lids get heavy. Sweet dreams follow. This is SO much better than any standard lavender spray - it is MAGIC.

Find your happy place
I’m a big fan of lavender, but it’s tough to find a lavender mist that’s not too perfume-y. I received a tester of this new mist and it is perfect! I use it everywhere: my favorite sneaky trick is to spray it on my wool dryer balls before I use them so all of my clothes have a subtle lavender scent. I also spritz a little bit on myself before stressful meetings with the dingbats I work with, and it works wonders on my mood!

This is amazing. It smells divine and has an immediate calming effect. I've been using it before my yoga practice and before bed. I feel so centered during my yoga and I've been sleeping deeply. I also had some itchiness on my shins and I sprayed it there. It was immediate relief. Highly recommend this.

Mists of Peace
Do you find during this time especially that you need a whiff of peace? Then get this and spritz peace for yourself. I got a travel size of this and went through it super fast (I need many peace spritzes!). The gem essences in this is part of what imbues the mist with peace. The scent is peaceful as well. The entire product is meant to support, lift up, and heal you and I find it does. I spritz my feet at night and sleep well (interestingly I have NOT been sleeping well since I ran out of this mist). These Elixir Mists are what we need now I know I will be getting a full size as soon as I am able to get one! Try it out.
