We’ll be the first to admit that we love crystals. We love that they add a beautiful statement to any space (especially the vibrant colored ones) and that their natural allure makes any room much more grounding.
Even though the exact ways they work are not fully known and are often based on metaphysical beliefs, many people say that working with crystals changes the energy around them in a positive way.
The thing is, crystals are believed to have unique vibrational frequencies that can interact with and change the energetic frequencies of the human body. Different types of crystals are also associated with specific properties and intentions, such as promoting love, protection, or clarity.
Below, we listed some of the popular crystals that people love having at home (hey, they’re popular for a reason!) along with a guide on where best to place them.
Rose quartz is commonly referred to as the "stone of love" because of its reputation for fostering empathy, helping with wound-healing, and promoting overall peace and tranquility. You can put it to good use in the bedroom, the living room, or any other room where you hope to cultivate “love interactions.”
Amethyst is a powerful crystal with many uses. It’s been widely recognized for its sedative effects, which help ease anxiety and tension. Having an amethyst in your bedroom or meditation area might help you relax and have a better night's rest.
Amethyst is also linked to mental growth and intuition, which makes it a great choice for sacred spaces or places close to where you meditate. It is thought to have a cleansing effect, getting rid of bad spirits and protecting you.
Green Fluorite is a crystal that is well-known for its healing and balance powers. It’s linked to the heart chakra, so it can help with mental healing, compassion, and caring for others. This crystal is also thought to bring balance and harmony to relationships and help people accept and understand each other. Putting green fluorite in places where you spend time with loved ones, like the living room or dining room, is said to help people get along better and be more caring.
Himalayan Crystal, often referred to as Himalayan Salt Crystal or a Himalayan Salt Lamp, has a number of uses. These crystals are believed to have air-purifying properties, helping to cleanse the surrounding environment by absorbing and neutralizing airborne pollutants. Placing them in the bedroom or living room can help you relax, lower stress, and improve sleep quality.
Clear Quartz is known as the "master healer,” as it is thought to improve mental clarity, concentration, and focus, making it a good stone for learning, decision-making, and solving problems. It can also be used to help mental growth and connection when meditating or doing healing work. These gems are often placed in the middle of rooms to encourage good energy flow and balance.
If you’re thinking of getting yourself some crystals, we highly recommend checking out local brand Cathy Kathy.
