A Beginner's Guide To Healing Crystals

With each crystal comes its very own medicinal power.

Wellness

Are you hip to the latest trends in health and wellness? Then you've likely heard about sound baths or implementing adaptogens, a killer combo of herbs and roots into your diet, to raise your vibrations! But, how about crystals? Sure, they sparkle and shine! However, according to the world of complementary and alternative medicine, they do so much more.

In fact, it's believed that holding or placing these gems on your body, aka "crystal healing" can promote a sound mind, body, and soul by positively interacting with your body's chakra. Of course, with each crystal comes its very own medicinal power. Think alleviating stress, restoring vitality and energy levels, improving concentration or creativity – they're even said to be grounding!

Boasting such a promising list of "health wealth", we had all the questions (all the questions). So, we enlisted the help of radio and television host turned multifaceted wellness advocate and speaker, Devi Brown. Here's what she had to say about your next wellness move.

What are healing crystals?

"Crystals are energetic entities that were formed by the earth many millions (and in some cases billions) of years ago," says Brown. "They are found in all parts of the world in mountains, underground and the earth's crust. Though not seen by the naked eye, they have scientifically proven energetic frequencies that emit from them," she adds of their innate healing powers. "It is believed that when we harness the energy of crystals, they can aid us in transforming ourselves mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. The use of crystal healing has been found in texts from India and China dating back as far as 5,000 years!"

What are the benefits of healing crystals?

Brown states, "When you find the right crystals for you, their energy will work in harmony with yours to enhance your life and reveal things to you that have been out of reach." Keep in mind, there is a little prep work on your part. "When you get your crystals, it is important to 'Set an intention,' meaning, spend time thinking about the way you want to harness the energy of the crystals in your bliss bag to help you manifest your deepest desires," the founder of Karma Bliss and bestselling author of Crystal Bliss advises.

How can we incorporate crystal healing in our wellness regimens?

For starters, Brown suggests, "Whether you choose to use crystal face rollers, crystal infused water bottles or my "Bliss Bags" filled with loose stones, the most important thing is that you keep them near you. They work best when you carry them with you, meditate with them, set them on your nightstand or keep them on your desk at work!"

Don't know where to start? Here are our top picks:

Clear Quartz

A go-to for beginners, this bad boy is a great stone for setting clear intentions. The stone is also said to contain energy amplifying properties. Can you say win-win?

Amethyst

Among the more popular crystals -- used in the home as décor -- this pretty, pale purple stained stone is commonly used to treat anxiety, stress and headaches. It also comes in clutch for boosting psychic ability.

Tiger's Eye

Known widely for its striking appearance, Tiger's Eye is a surefire option for those yearning for grounding; by boosting self-confidence and encouraging growth.
