DETOXIFYING | GROUNDING | CREATIVITY
In the Middle Ages, the red splatters that give dark green Bloodstone its name were believed to be the blood of Christ and beautiful Bloodstone’s properties could hardly be more epic and powerful.
Bloodstone (also known as Heliotrope) – a combination of Green Chalcedony and Red Jasper - has been used for thousands of years for its healing properties. This stone is a heavy-duty purifier and is outstanding at grounding negative energy, and better than kale at detoxifying the body. Bloodstone benefits all blood rich organs and regulates blood flow, while cleansing lower chakras and realigning energies
This stone is great for those who need a little extra motivation to get up and get moving (so long snooze button). Assisting and enhancing the functions of the mind, Bloodstone will help to remove any energy blocks that are keeping you stagnant and push you to get going. This stone’s energy will shift your thinking and helps you take charge of your life. Bloodstone can help to enhance intuition and creativity, and can be used to combat fatigue, irritability, and confusion.
