CRYSTALS + YOU
Here are some of our favourite ways to incorporate crystals into your everyday life
✨ MEDITATION | Surely, we all know by now that a meditation habit is maybe the healthiest habit any of us can hope to develop (it beats smoking or gambling anyway, trust us). But transitioning into a meditative or mindful state isn’t always easy, and often, even with the best of intentions, people give up on their practice. They find it difficult to sit still and focus.
Never fear – this is where crystals come in handy. Crystals can cleanse the mind of chaotic thoughts and doubts, they calm and ground us and elevate our energy, so that you can fully immerse yourself in your meditation.
✨ SLEEPING WITH THEM | When you have difficulty sleeping, any number of things could be responsible for disturbing your rest. Whether you have too much on your plate and can’t switch off, or you can’t seem to settle your energy and are constantly worrying you’ve left your hair straightener on, crystals can bring you the peace you need to sleep easy.
If you are just lying there, sleeping sweetly for 8-ish hours every night, you might as well be absorbing some good vibes from your crystals, right?
To use your crystal at bedtime, try setting it next to you on your bedside table, placing it under your pillow or (best of all) holding it in your palm as you drift off.
✨ MASSAGE | Crystallising your massages can elevate your body work session to previously unknown levels of bliss. Using crystals along with soft tissue manipulation can reduce not only muscle pain, but also any pain or blocked energy stored in your mind or energy body, helping to bring your body and energy field back into balance to create stability.
✨ SKIN CARE ROUTINE | When used as part of your daily skincare ritual, a crystal facial roller and/or crystal infused facial serum can work to stimulate collagen synthesis, minimise fine lines and wrinkles, support lymphatic drainage, reduce pore size, boost elasticity, soothe irritation, minimise puffiness and promote deeper product preparation… Yikes – trying saying all of that without taking a breath.
Physically, it helps firm the outer layers of the skin through gentle massage. It also aids in detoxing through the lymphatic system, the body’s main major detoxification structure.
✨ WEAR THEM | Having your crystals close to you is the most effective way to utilise their power. Whether it be crystal jewellery or a little tumble in your pocket (or bra!) Having them close to your skin and vibrating with your aura is the most ideal situation to reach your goal or intention for them faster.
+ so much more, including but not limited to - elixirs, adding them to your altar, creating crystal grids, spells, the posibilities are endless.
CRYSTALS + THE HOME
You’d have to be living under a rock (pun intended!) to be oblivious to how popular gemstones, rocks, crystals and geodes have become in interiors. Seriously, if Instagram is anything to go by, we are definitely not the only ones using crystals to boost the ambiance and good vibes of our living space.
And while there are obviously plenty of creative ways (hello Pinterest!) to take advantage of the healing powers of crystals, if you’re looking to take full advantage of their witchy vibrations and magickal energy, there are ways to place them around your home intentionally, so that their energy can support you in various specific environments.
And don’t forget that the energy of your home can shift over time. If you’ve ever been in a space that was totally spick and span, and flooded with life giving natural light, but somehow just felt heavy, or uncomfortable, then you can understand how a home’s energy is dictated by more than just cleanliness.
The vibe of a space has a lot to do with the energy that has been expelled there, and not cleared away. Breakups, stress, deaths or grief, parties that got out of hand, or even arguments about whose turn it is to take the bins out can leave behind energy in your home and if you’re not smudging or getting rid of that negativity with high vibe crystals for your home, your space can start to feel dirty, no matter how hard your scrub.

REMEMBER, you don't HAVE to believe they're magic - you can just collect them because you think thy're pretty - there are no rules and we are not the gate keepers of crystals 💗
CLARITY | CLEANSING | PROTECTION
The name Amethyst translates in Greek to, “not drunken”. But before you write this one off as “not for you” due to your Friday night Pinot habit, you should note that this potentially odd name comes from that time when angry Greek God Bacchus poured one out for his fallen homie, turning a clear crystal purple with the sweet nectar of the gods. Those ancient philosophers could have been onto something with the belief that it could spare you from public drunkenness. Maybe it’s time Amethyst replaced a penis straw as the Hen’s Night must have…
Ancient angry gods and public intoxication notwithstanding, the February birthstone’s healing properties are plentiful. Its purifying energy is linked to cleansing the mind of negative thoughts and releasing addictive behaviours. It’s also helpful in making a clear connection between planes, making it excellent for meditation and lucid dreaming. Amethyst is used to open one’s channels to telepathy, past life regression, clairaudience and clairvoyance and communication with angels.
Amethyst is said to aid creative thinking and spiritual awareness. It is also a protective stone and thought to reduce nightmares. So, rather than watching “one more episode” on Netflix next time insomnia stripes, try placing amethyst stones underneath your pillow before you go to bed and give into the peace and calm this stunning stone can bring.
Using this Pantone Colour of the Year (2018) hued stone to decorate the home is a choice many make for its good looks alone. Aside from the fact that an amethyst in the family room can assist in familial bonding and in the office can bring intuition for making tough decisions and assist in stress-relief for long working days, its uplifting energy can really help tie a room together.

Using crystals for their spiritual and healing properties can be fun and fascinating and is a killer way to connect with the earth’s energy. But, when you really start digging into the magickal world of sparkly stones, it can start getting really overwhelming.
Not only do crystals come in every colour of the rainbow and serve different intended purposes, they are also found in many different shape formations. Newbies to the crystal world may think the way a stone is cut or shaped is purely aesthetic, but there’s a little more to a crystal’s shape than meets the eye. Just as the colours of the stones convey unique meanings, crystal shapes also matter. And while experts say that the structure of a crystal doesn’t change the type of energy it emits, the shape DOES affect the way you receive said energy.
