Eye Candy: Focus on Pearls

Pearls have been used for healing properties for centuries, particularly in traditional Asian medicine. Although modern science has not discovered anything magical about pearls, many people find benefits that science has missed. Pearls are said to give the wearer a sense of calmness and centeredness, and to promote faith, loyalty, truth and purity. They are believed to increase personal integrity, and are particularly suited to women.

Pearls have been used throughout medical history to help treat problems with digestion, muscles, and skin. Powders and potions containing pearls have also been taken to increase fertility and lessen the pain of childbirth. Pearl powder is used in cosmetics, and is considered to be effective in controlling rosacea and acne.

Some believe that the pearl helps to balance the human body’s natural rhythms and hormone levels with lunar cycles. There are also those that claim that the pearl can bring inner wisdom and help to strengthen and nurture the growth of love. Pearls are thought by others to have very strong “magnetic” powers and have been used in “gem therapy” to strengthen nerves, the adrenal glands, the spleen and muscle tissue.

Pearls are said to allow a person to open up and find the meaning and purpose of life. They are believed to help the wearer love herself and others more. Even if this is not true, wearing pearls will make a woman feel special; receiving them as a gift will make her feel loved.
