We are testing the waters here with some craft items we can make to add "variety" to our store. At one time we had a business making all kinds of different kinds of jewelry and stone items. With a little free time we have made a few items to give a test run :D
Some AMETHYST Info:
AMETHYST PROVIDES SERENITY
Amethyst carries a calming and serene energy that will help you unwind and relax. It soothes the body, reducing anxious nerves and restlessness.
Amethyst is an excellent crystal to use when you feel jittery or wound up. It will ease your muscles and instantly help you feel more relaxed and peaceful.
AMETHYST PROMOTES HORMONE BALANCE
Amethyst brings balance to the endocrine system, which is the system in the body that is responsible for making hormones. This is HUGE considering most people suffer from some type of hormonal issue.
According to some studies, hormonal imbalances play a big role in issues involving weight gain, PMS, acne, painful breasts, migraines, cellulite, loss of libido, disrupted menstrual cycles, menopause, and feeling burned out.
We can use the amethyst stone to optimize the performance of the entire endocrine system, which includes the hypothalamus, pituitary gland, thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal glands, pineal body, reproductive glands, and pancreas.
AMETHYST CAN HELP WITH WEIGHT LOSS
Amethyst promotes weight loss in several ways. It balances metabolism so that the body can burn calories more efficiently. It also balances the hormones, which improves weight loss. And, it helps us more easily avoid bad habits, so we can stick to our diets, eat healthier foods, and exercise consistently.
AMETHYST DETOXIFIES THE BODY
Because of its cleansing abilities, one of the leading amethyst stone benefits is detoxification.
It promotes cleansing of the body from the inside out. This includes the cleansing and opening of the chakras, the cleansing of the blood, and the removal of toxins from the body.
AMETHYST REDUCES HEADACHES
Amethyst helps with pain relief in general, but especially headaches. Its soothing energy calms the pain and helps reduce two of the main causes of headaches: stress and fatigue.
To use amethyst to relieve a headache, lay down and place an amethyst tumbled stone on the area of the head where you are feeling the pain. Close your eyes and imagine the crystal healing your headache.
AMETHYST PROVIDES STRESS RELIEF
Amethyst's calming energy balances the mind and emotions, serving to reduce fear, anger, sadness, and anxiety. This is one of amethyst's most valued properties.
Just being around an amethyst stone provides such soothing comfort that you can feel your stresses melting away. And we can also use amethyst to help us handle our emotions with more ease during times when we feel them getting out of control.
AMETHYST IMPROVES MENTAL FOCUS & SPARKS NEW IDEAS
Amethyst is amazing because it either calms or stimulates the mind according to what is needed in the moment. No need to carry several crystals with you - all you need is amethyst to help you achieve the emotional state you want.
Amethyst stones reduce scattered thoughts and help us focus, which in turn improves our memory. When our mind is calm, we are able to tune into things in a new, heightened way, and that makes everything easier.
We begin to receive insights we wouldn't have with an overworked, cloudy mind. Fresh, creative ideas come into our thoughts as a result.
AMETHYST IMPROVES DECISION-MAKING
One of the biggest amethyst stone benefits is the improvement it makes in the decision-making process.
By helping us make choices that are based on the combination of our intuition and common sense, we find ourselves making more mature and creative, and less emotionally-charged decisions; therefore, we have fewer regrets and better things happen in our lives.
Emotions are typically the reason we make poor choices. When we follow the whims of our feelings and emotions, we feel out of control and often do things we wish we hadn't done.
With the help of the amethyst stone, we can see our emotions for what they are so that we can think clearly and act from a more informed, powerful place.
IN CASE YOU DON'T KNOW... Here's a breakdown of the meanings of the Chakra stones:
The Chakra system is used in yoga and meditation to help align the spirit, body, and mind. There are seven chakras that are aligned with your spine from the bottom to the top. A Chakra is a point or ball of energy that cannot be seen with the physical eye. Working towards understanding and mastering each Chakra is said to help align and bring peace to the body. Each chakra has a different meaning and purpose and each has a color and stones associated it. Starting at the bottom, listed below are the seven chakras and their stones.
Root Chakra: The root chakra is the very bottom chakra, located at the bottom of the spine. The color for this chakra is red and the common stones are agate, black tourmaline, bloodstone, hematite, and tiger’s eye. The red chakra is the base of the chakras. It provides and represents the base of survival and trust.
Sacral Chakra: The sacral chakra is orange and its common stones are carnelian, citrine, coral, and moonstone. This chakra represents emotions. The feelings of creativity, sexuality, and other feelings.
Solar Plexus Chakra: The chakra directly above the last is the solar plexus chakra and the color is yellow. This chakra is a symbol of wisdom and power. It represents each person’s individuality and the impact they can make on the world. The common stones of this chakra are calcite, citrine, malachite, and topaz.
Heart Chakra: As the name implies, this chakra is located at the heart and its color is green. The common stones are green calcite, green tourmaline, jade, and rose quartz. The reason that this chakra is green opposed to red is that it represents the heart become one with nature (green). The common symbols for this chakra are love and healing.
Throat Chakra: The throat chakras’ color is blue and the common stones are aquamarine, lapis lazuli, and turquoise. The throat chakra is obviously located at the throat and it represents communication. This chakra focuses on expressing oneself and building self-confidence.
Third Eye Chakra: This chakra is the most commonly mentioned chakra. Its color is indigo and the stones are amethyst, black obsidian, and purple fluorite. The third eye represents awareness and attentiveness. It is said that “opening” your third eye is a spiritual breakthrough and requires practice and skill in meditation.
Crown Chakra: The last chakra is the crown chakra and it is located at the head. This chakra symbolizes spirituality and when mastered is said to open up new levels of consciousness. The color for this chakra is purple with its stones being amethyst, diamond quartz, and selenite.
1-3 business days
Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. I'm not responsible for delays due to customs.
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
We are always happy to work with store owners, barber shops, online resellers and anyone who wants to sell Dixie Cowboy Products. Just send us a message and we can work on a custom wholesale order just for you. We are not currently wholesaling our handmade combs and brushes, it is just impossible to mass produce these at this time. Some minimums apply when placing items for resale.
While our handling and processing time is set to 3 business days we generally ship out rather quickly. We schedule pick ups for Monday and Thursday every week so you can expect your order to go out on those days (depending when you order).
Where applicable we will give an idea of the ingredients in the product. We do this for the love and all items are as advertised so if we say something is "glycol free" or "soy free" etc... it is. BUT we've had so many fishy people lately trying to get us to give them the recipe to our unique items. We love these products and we love you (our customers) so rest assured that our products are 100% as advertised. BUT again, if you have a specific allergy please just email us and we can tell you if it's safe.
We love what we make and our handmade items take up most of our free time these days. We treat each one like it's our artistic interpretation and as a piece of art. We no longer accept custom or personalized orders as what little free time goes into creating more product for our shop. Thank you for understanding.
No not all but many, any item that can be custom scented for you will have a drop down menu with a SCENT category in the listing. Some products can not be scented due to a majority of reasons.
Our animal hair is sourced right here in Texas. All our wood is sourced right here as well but there are a couple for obvious reasons like they don't grow in Texas that are sourced elsewhere. Same with the horns. If you are looking to start your own comb or brush business I would suggest doing some research as I'm not giving up my contacts :D :P :D :P
I can't give you a class on how to make the brushes or combs, please don't ask me to walk you through how you can make the brushes or combs yourself. I'm sorry but I've worked hard to create a niche and it's not very nice to expect me to give out trade secrets and walk you through how to attach, clean, sanitize etc.. the boar hair and attach it :D :P :D :P.
This seems to be the number one thing I've had emails about recently. All animals are treated with respect and dignity. When possible the material is sourced right on our farm but when needed we buy from other suppliers. It goes without saying that our GOAT and HORSE hair brushes are from "no kill" animals. Our boar hair is sourced in Texas from several places and is collected from wild boar who are hunted and processed for meat. There is no cruelty involved and all boars are dispersed as humanely as possible. Hair collection is only done when animal is processed after death.
Our typical packaging consists of brand new heavyweight boxes and new bubblewrap... BUT .... we hate waste here whether it's horn chunks, wood pieces or even packaging items we get ourselves. SOOOOO I always keep a big box full of brown recycled paper, air pillows and anything else I can reuse. We don't normally ship with it UNLESS someone asks so PLEASE PLEASE just add a note with your order if you would like Green packaging.
