The act of using crystals and stones for healing has been around since the beginning of time, and although many ancient cultures, including the Egyptians and Mayans, utilized various crystals for their healing powers, modern society has mostly ignored the practice. But with the rising popularity of alternative and holistic medicines that is slowly changing. Finally, crystal healing is once again becoming a mainstream technique.
You can use crystals in a variety of ways, including placing them on your body during meditation, creating grids for Feng Shui purposes, wearing them as jewelry, or even just by showcasing them around your home or office to bring additional beauty into your spaces. Consider carrying one that resonates with you to use as a designated healing stone or purchase a jade facial roller for your nightly at-home spa treatments.
