June 7, 2013

Exciting news at Pet Heelerz. We will be launching our new Travel Collection of stones at the North American July 5-7. We are so looking forward to being back at Spruce Meadows for the event. We love that venue.

After doing extensive research, we have selected three stones that support all conditions that can create travel sickness. The stress of traveling or travel worries,  motion sickness, and the physical result of those problems. Moonstone, Citrine and Dumortierite are all great stones that help can with travel sickness. Today we will be discovering Moonstone and it's many attributes.

We specifically chose Moonstone as one of our Travel Collection because it is know to offer protection to travelers. It can ease the digestive system, calm excess acid in the stomach, and it's soothing to the inner self and emotions.
In antiquity moonstone was called selenitis. It is a creamy, somewhat cheesy looking stone with a color and luminosity that is reminiscent of the moon. Being associated with the moon, it has always been a stone of love. Moonstone also has an important affinity with the moon in its influence on the breeding cycle and hormonal fluctuations in female humans and animals. The most beautiful moonstones are found in Sri Lanka and India.
