Our bodies are made up of water, tissues, and minerals, and our bones have a crystalline-like structure, and because of this, we have an “electronic” exchange with the Earth. Having been under the Earth’s surface for thousands of years, crystals too have vibrations and the same electronic exchange with human bodies. The vibrations are said to be unique to each stone and help amplify the products you apply using them. Although there has not been any scientific explanation behind the concept, crystals have long been used to create a sense of balance in life.
Different crystals are said to have different properties. The most commonly used crystal is rose quartz. Rose quartz comes in varying shades of soft pink to lavender and is dubbed as the “love stone”. With this stone, you will radiate unconditional love whether it’s for yourself, familial, platonic, or romantic. The stone works with the heart and sacral chakras for you to open up and invite love in and is particularly popular in skincare due to its anti-ageing benefits. Rose quartz is perfect for those with sensitive skin as it has cooling and calming properties.
Citrine is referred to as the stone of success. The stone can be used for manifesting money and success and its properties include alleviating symptoms of anxiety and depression as it works with the solar plexus chakra. It is self-cleansing and decreases stress. This particular stone can be made into crystal essences, elixirs, or gem waters.
The third-most-popular stone is the black tourmaline of obsidian. It is best known for protection against “low vibrational entities”, meaning removing yourself from negative energy sources. In addition, it can also be used for grounding, easing anxiety, rebalancing the body, psychic protection, empowerment, and protection from environmental pollutants and radiation.
The most-commonly-used stone in current beauty is jade. Historically, jade was used in China and reserved for the royals. Known to be a protective stone, jade increases love, nurtures luck, and brings good friendships and harmony in life. In skincare, it is said to help reduce puffiness, smooth out fine lines, create a better complexion, reduce pores, and contour the muscles of the face.
It is important to note that finding the right crystal can be a long and uniquely personal process. You should find those that you are drawn to or resonate with. And now that you know the different properties of some of the most popular, here are some of our favorite crystal products.
