Crystals (aka precious and semi-precious stones) are one of the foundations to a balanced quality of life. Know how to use and position them correctly, you’re on to winner.
The natural crystals that the earth produces for us shouldn’t be taken for granted, in this post you we will delve into the wonders of gem stones and crystals, understanding the best places to wear them.
How do crystals heal?
Crystals work through vibrations, connecting with different energy fields within your body. Different crystals will give off different resonance, so understanding the attributes of each crystal is highly important. For a deeper insight into the properties and benefits of our top semi precious stones, look out for our next blog post ‘Firkins pick: Our top 10 gem stones’. Coming soon!
Each Crystal has its own healing power. For instance malachite contains copper which can assist joint and muscular problems, in the same way a copper bracelet would. Small vibrational doses of the minerals in the stone are absorbed externally, aiding the healing process. Who’d of thought a piece of rock would benefit you in such a way?!
