Crystal Rehlinger, Owner
Being a true lover of all things beautiful including fresh cut flowers, bohemian textiles, raw crystals and beautiful make up I realized that I had to put my love for beauty into action. I have a passion for helping people incorporate different ways of adornment into their daily ritual whether that looks like a new lipstick or a piece of jewelry that truly makes the wearer feel beautiful. Being a part of “Team Green” here at The Green Vanity, as well as owning my own business allows me to help in a more personal way.
I started off in the mainstream beauty world at a Shopper’s Drug Mart and after two years of experience in helping clients with brands like Lise Watier, Pur Minerals and Biotherm I stumbled onto clean beauty and realized that I could never go back. I started transitioning to all clean products here at the boutique and instantly fell in love with the smell of the natural botanicals, the high color pay off of the natural pigments, the way that my skin looked, how my skin felt and how calming I found it was to know that all of the products were truly ethical. I knew that I wanted to be a part of this green movement here in Kelowna and I joined the team officially in Nov. 2016. I can be found fluttering around the boutique supporting shoppers and friends with their own personal transitions to this new way of beauty. It would be my pleasure to help you find anything from a new lipstick shade to the missing part to your skincare routine, and if need be I would love to be a friend here at the boutique for you.
The other part to what I do is a business called Crystal and Root Collective where I handcraft high vibrational, mindful adornments out of consciously sourced crystals. This journey truly started for me when I was gifted my first mala that was made of a mix of tulsi and tiger’s eye and I had an overwhelming sense of grounding wash over me and at that moment I fell in love with my mala. The realization hit me that I discovered a way to incorporate my absolute love for crystals into something bigger I wanted to create high vibrational, traditional hand knotted intention setting malas with gorgeous, healing gemstone energy attached to each one. I now strive to create a variety of unique crystal adornments for everyone on their personal journey whether that looks like a traditional 108 bead mala to be used as a powerful meditation tool or a piece of jewelry that help to remind ones’ self of their intentions and let their inner power shine through. Each piece is beautifully designed, carefully strung with care, intention and positive vibrations. My intention is to craft more than just a final product. It is to create adornment that provides the wearer with peace, love, harmony and to embrace their inner divinity.
