My Favorite Crystals and How to Use Them

The Purpose of Crystals in My Life

One of my favorite ways to practice holistic health and live a grounded lifestyle rooted in taking care of myself and wellness is by collecting and using crystals.

I’ve collected crystals since I was little (back then it was my “rock collection”) and its something my sister and I have always been fascinated by…but it wasn’t until a few years ago that Kat started opening me up to the idea of collecting crystals again. This time? It was to connect with myself and use their “powers”.

Now, you can take it or leave it if you do not believe crystals have the ability to affect your life. I’m a pretty woo-woo person but I’m also practical. I get it. My favorite part about crystals, truthfully, is how they surround my house in the beauty that is Earth and how they encourage me to be more intentional in my daily life…which I can always use more of.

And that’s how I would encourage any user, especially a beginner, to think of crystals. No need to get caught up in the nuance of where to place them, what each one is used for, how to pick them…I say put them in your home where it feels organic, use your intuition as far as how to pick them as well as how to use them.

If you are interested in learning more about the science behind crystals, which there is actually a ton of, I love the site Hibiscus Moon. But my favorite resource is my sister, I think she does a wonderful job explaining how to use them in a way that’s easy to understand.

As Kat says in her video on how to use videos, they hold energetic resonance, intention and they hold your intentions and thoughts.

My Favorite Crystals and How to Use Them

  1. Rose quartz. The self love crystal, best for compassion and unconditional love. And the crystals I have almost the most of in our home.

  2. Selenite. Wonderful clearing energy blockages. Great for aligning your chakras and raising awareness. I have selenite “wands” spread throughout the home, especially at doorways.

  3. Smoky quartz. I use smoky quartz and any darker crystals to help remove negative energy.

  4. Amethyst. A protective stone that helps clear the mind and also associated with abundance.

  5. Turquoise. One of my favorite rings I wear all the time is turquoise, which can be used to realign energy centers and as for health and abundance.

  6. Moonstone. Another favorite ring of mine, I purchased my moonstone ring when I was wanting to encourage fertility, and I’ve continued wearing it now as a mother to connect to my feminine energy.

  7. Citrine. My favorite crystal for financial abundance, I used this one to set that intention daily :)
