Whether you’re a new Mum or onto your third (or fourth, or fifth, or..... more?), being a parent can massively throw off your game on a daily basis. The ups and downs are frequent, the lack of sleep can be debilitating and the struggle to find balance never goes away.
As a mother, you may never attain that perfect balance between self-care and indentured servitude, but it is possible (and advisable!!) to show yourself a little support in any way you can.
An easy, super low effort way to add some self-care into your day is to incorporate the healing energy of crystals in your routines…
Our favourite crystals for Mothers
This dreamy, ethereal stone directly channels the moon, a formidable force that has the power to push and pull the tides of the five deep oceans, not to mention your emotions. Because of its connection to the moon, this is a crystal that rules at soothing pain and emotions during that time of the month as well as unlocking the goddess within, making it the best stone for balancing hormones and offering support during periods of major hormonal change, such as childbirth, puberty or menopause.
Rose Quartz has been used in love rituals and ceremonies for centuries and remains the stone of unconditional love. Whether that be self-love, platonic or romantic love, or the love between a mother and child, the way Rose Quartz facilitates love is through its ability to bring your consciousness to a higher level. Helping you to forgive and understand, Rose Quartz is strongly associated with the element of water, its healing properties are naturally fluid. They wash out those toxic energies and emotions that threaten to weigh you down.
One of the four precious gemstones, Ruby has lit the treasure troves of royalty for generations with its red fiery light. A stone of courage and inner strength, Ruby surges with a pure, juicy, warm energy. Protective of home, worldly possessions and children, as well as psychic protection, Ruby’s powerful presence can shield against unhappiness, empowering the bearer to move forward without fear. Think red means stop? Time to think again, with blazing Ruby at your side.
Also known as Tree Agate, Dendritic Agate is ideal for examination of self and the self-imposed limitations and patterns that make up our life experiences. Dendritic Agate’s warm protective properties encourage security and self-confidence, and it is a great crystal to have by your side during pregnancy and beyond. It can help new mothers avoid the “baby blues” and a Dendritic Agate worn between the breasts encourages lactation.
Citrine is a stone as bright as its energy. It emanates more positivity and joy than a box full of puppies. Citrine is the perfect stone to combat negative energy of any kind, by breaking it up and dissipating it. Add a piece of Citrine to the bedroom to bring light and abundance into your intimate space, or to a child’s bedroom to bring a sense of security and golden light force.
