Moldavite Essential Oil
Moldavite Oil is created from real moldavite being infused in water to extract its essence. Extracting its essence allows us to gain the benefits of moldavite in a more gentle way. Moldavite essential oil can be added to a diffuser or carrier oil. We also carry bath salts, incense sticks, and body lotion containing moldavite essential oil.
Moldavite is the most famous of the tektites that formed approximately 15 million years ago when a meteor hit Earth in the area we know today as Czech Republic. It is an olive to deep forest green colour and is classified as a type of glass. Due to the uniqueness of its formation, it is very rare and has a magical mixture of stardust and earth energy. The crystal itself is extremely high frequency and accelerates spiritual growth therefore should be used with some caution if the user is not ready for this yet. Moldavite Oil is a much gentler approach to gaining its benefits.

With its strong link between Earth and other worlds it facilitates interdimensional connections, communications, and knowledge.
