For thousands of years, ancient civilizations have used crystals to help with mental, physical and spiritual imbalances. This kind of healing dates back to the ancient Romans, Egyptians, Greeks, Chinese and Sumerians. Since crystals come from the earth, when they're placed on your body, they help you connect to mother earth’s healing energy. This leaves you feeling more centered. Each crystal has unique properties and energies to heal different aspects of your life.

Each stone, like everything else in the world, has its own frequency. Using crystals is a way to “tune in” to the other vibrations happening around us and keep us aligned. Just as each crystal has its own unique vibration, they will react differently to each person. Once you have a basic understanding of the different types of crystals, finding the right one becomes very intuitive. You will be drawn to certain stones over others - which is your body’s way of telling you the metaphysical help you need most. Pick up the stone and see if you feel any reactions - a sense of calmness, tingling sensations or any changes in temperature can be signs that the stone you chose is right for you.

The benefits of crystals varies greatly, from protecting against negativity and aiding in anxiety to helping relieve physical pains. We have a large variety of stones for you to choose from - helping you in any situation you may need. Here is a few ways different stones can help you physically, mentally and spiritually:

How you use your crystals is up to you! You can hold them in meditation to set your intention into the stone. To have it at all times, carry crystals in your pocket or create jewelry from them to constantly be reminded of your intentions. If you are looking to have positive energy and protection in your home, place crystals throughout your home to create a welcoming, sacred space for you and your loved ones. You can also sleep with crystals under your pillow or by your night stand to enhance your dreams and have protection from negative thoughts. The choice is yours.

Finding the right crystal for you takes time, so don’t rush the process. You may find that some stones don’t resonate with you like others, and some may not resonate at all. When you find the crystals that send a wave of calmness and serenity throughout your body, or give you a tingling sensation that makes your hairs stand up, that’s when you know you’ve made the right choice. Come by to see which crystals call out to you!
