Shopping Brands and Wellness Trends

As of late spirituality, wellness, and all things metaphysical have become extremely trendy and noticeably mis-represented.

For those who are embarking on a new spiritual journey or are wanting to take their wellness to the next level it might be difficult to sort through brands and businesses that operate with authenticity and are operating ethically.

Transparency is key when you choose a business to support your wellness and spiritual journey. Connecting with a brand that is conscious of their supplies and sources is extremely important.

Why does this matter?

Well let’s take a look at a few things for example; a brand that sells a spiritual or energetic tool such as Palo Santo that does not source their offering from an ethically or sustainable farm could hold very poor energy, contradicting its use for your journey. Not only does that affect your energetic environment but supporting such brands could also contribute to the near extinction of Palo Santo trees. This concept applies to Crystals, Sage, and anything that absorbs energy. 

It’s also recommended to take a look at the brands owners and founders operating story. Is the business truly invested in wellness, your wellness, and growth? What are their contributions to the community? Are owners/founders professionally educated reference the products they sell? Reading crystal books on gemstones meanings, or energy does not automatically  qualify one to sell or teach about sacred practices. It’s actually a bit heedless to omit important historical facts with regards to healing and its culture and traditional use.

Remember it is 100% ok to support your favorite small businesses and brands. It is also a personal responsibility and due diligence to research who you are supporting and how you’re supporting that business and how they specifically support the community. Who benefits from the transaction?

Johari & Lou Artisan Soul Stones purposely connects with diversity-inclusive small businesses that operate with deep consciousness and sustainable practices (down to non-exploitation of their employees). We also work alongside brands worldwide that harvest ethically sourced products to incorporate within our offerings. Our employees are equipped to teach and share information on wellness, complementary and alternative health to better aid in purchases.

Now more than ever those very important attributes are too expensive to invest with businesses who sell what’s trendy.

Your spiritual journey, wellness, and personal experience should be treated with respect and care. Optimal health is not a trend, and you can rest assure with JOHARI & LOU Artisan Soul Stones your energy is in good hands.
