We’ve known for a long time that elements from the Earth can help improve our spaces and our health, from protective stones like tourmaline to cleansing ones like quartz. Keeping crystals in our homes can help balance our energy and provide neutralizing frequencies as well as beautifying our spaces. But keeping these stones on us in the form of bracelets, necklaces and anklets can also be a great way to introduce the benefits of healing crystals to your daily routine. Taking these crystals wherever you go and letting them provide you with their calming and balancing effects as you go through your day can help give you more of a buffer in even stressful situations. Here are a few interesting- and stylish- ways to keep healing crystals close.
Tourmaline has three different kinds of energy that make it powerful as a healer. It helps to convert body heat into healing far infrared energy, it’s capable of producing negative ions, which can improve cognition and keep depression at bay, and most importantly it generates a therapeutic flow of electrons that can help to align us with the planet’s natural flow. Tourmaline resonates at the same frequency as the Earth, and keeping it on your person can help realign you with the “Earth’s heartbeat.”
Historically, black tourmaline has a connection to the root chakra, and as such it is known for having the ability to ground and protect. It’s very useful for keeping negative energy at bay, which makes it an especially helpful ally for empaths or anyone else who tends to take on others’ energy and worries. Keeping black tourmaline with you in a piece of jewelry will keep you grounded in yourself and shield you from negativity.
For Self Love
Rose quartz has a strong connection to the heart chakra, making it the perfect place to start if you’re looking to harness crystals to increase self love and compassion. With its direct connection to the heart, rose quartz can do a lot to clear out emotional blocks and open us up to receive new connections, relationships and perspectives. It can also help to provide deep comfort in times of grief. If you find yourself in a tumultuous time or feel out of balance emotionally, rose quartz is a perfect stone to keep close by.
Especially when combined with rose quartz, African opal’s purifying qualities can help to create emotional clarity and bring stability to the heart chakra. It can also help to foster creativity and bring fresh inspiration, so it’s a great choice if you’ve been experiencing stagnation or want more imagination in your daily life.
Rhodonite is a very nurturing crystal that helps to create emotional balance and fuel compassion within ourselves and for others. It can help to gently mend old wounds, creating space for new growth and allowing us to move forward to fresh emotional ground. Wearing it in a piece of jewelry will help you feel embraced by this crystal’s soothing energy all day long and it can be especially helpful if you’ve been going through a difficult emotional time.
Using the power of scent to change our surroundings and foster emotional boosts doesn’t have to end at home! Some types of jewelry are specifically designed to help you bring the benefits of aromatherapy, and the healing properties of essential oils, with you as you move through the world.
Lava stone has a connection to the root chakra; when you wear it as jewelry, it serves to help keep you grounded throughout your day. What’s more, because of the stone’s natural porousness, a lot of lava stone jewelry can be used to diffuse a small amount of essential oil so you can create the desired energy around you at all times.
Amethyst is a crystal that has been used for bringing on clarity since the times of Ancient Greece; it gets its name from the Greek word amethystos, meaning literally “not drunk.” In modern times it’s still considered very useful for creating tranquility, dispelling negative thoughts and creating mental clarity. It’s a great stone to incorporate into your jewelry if you spend a lot of your time encountering stressors like a fast-paced work environment or challenging living situation. It can help to create a protective buffer for your personal sense of calm against stressful energy our outside negativity.
Jewelry that incorporates crystals can be the perfect way to carry their help and protection with you wherever you go. After all, so many of the emotional challenges we face happen when we’re away from home, so why not equip ourselves for emotional grounding and stability in all circumstances? Whether you need the love-boosting qualities of rose quartz or tourmaline’s ability to keep you in step with the Earth, healing crystals have a lot to offer anyone who’s looking for more peace and wellness in their daily lives.
