Crystals have been used for healing people all around the world for thousands of years, and they are extraordinary objects of nature. Crystals can be placed in stagnant rooms to absorb negative energies and are often worn by people for protection or to enhance a particular area in their life.

Many healers like to use Crystals in their healing sanctuaries by placing the appropriate Crystal on the various chakra points to enhance the healing process. The reason behind this is that Crystals channel energy, and are able to focus, store, transmit and transmute this energy, which can bring beneficial healing and energising effects. Crystal healing like other healing methods works to improve physical, mental and emotional well being as well as your spiritual advancement. Crystals can improve your general state and reduce or remove symptoms of disease. They can also speed up your lifestyle choices, by having the appropriate Crystals around you. Crystals work because their pure vibrating light energies penetrate the body, mind and spirit, and this helps to heal any imbalances present in the body.

It is always a wise practice to cleanse Crystals before and after any healing session, as this will help to get rid of any negative energy the Crystal has absorbed. This can be done in a number of different ways, a few are listed below.


 Running under water (unless water-soluble)

Sunlight (be wary of quartz crystals as the suns rays can be a fire risk)

Moonlight (especially a full or new moon)

Incense/sandalwood/sage (smoking)

Burying (in the earth over night)

Sound (using Tingsha bells/singing bowls)



Cleansing Crystals with Sunlight and Moonlight works better in conjunction with the chakra points. The base, sacral and solar chakra Crystals are better cleansed through Sunlight (hence their colours red, orange and yellow), the lower self. Whereas the heart, throat, brow and crown chakra Crystals are better cleansed by the Moon.

You can feel the benefits of Crystals simply by having them near you, holding them in your hand or wearing them next to your skin. You can also benefit by making elixirs, this is done by immersing the Crystal in water. Though do check that the chosen Crystal is safe to do so as not all Crystals are suitable to drink. Also many people choose to decorate their homes with beautiful coloured Crystals in order to bring balance and harmony into their lives, through the Crystals flowing energy. As you can see the Crystal can be a valuable asset to aid your health and environment in many different ways. Listed below are a few recommendations for your physical and emotional needs.
