Comfort Collection: Moonstone

We specifically chose Moonstone as one of our original Travel Collection because it is known 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 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. We have found that moonstone is very helpful with symptoms of menopause and hormone imbalance. A great addition to support the feminine self. The most beautiful moonstones are found in Sri Lanka and India.
