Okay, so crystals are trendy. They may be very 2017 but most have been around forever…like for real. (Shungite is 2 billion years old!) I’m not one to jump on bandwagons…seriously. I had this aversion to doing what everyone else was doing since elementary school. When the other kids loved SpaceJam, I thought it was stupid, just out of principal. I hate that I love you can buy them at Target now…Anyway, I LOVE crystals. They’re gorgeous, make amazing jewelry, and can basically heal the world.
Healing properties or no, most crystals are beautiful to look at and comforting to hold. Since they can be a little overwhelming when you’re new to the game, I’m going to do a series and highlight one crystal per post and delve into the specifics slowly.
I thought I’d start with one of my favorites:
- pale pink – the shade was even named one of Pantone’s Colors of the Year for 2016
- universal love – give and receive love
- heal a broken heart
- peace & calm
*Tip: Rose quartz fades so don’t keep it in the sun!
How to use:
- Carry it with you! Put it in your pocket, shove it in your bra, whatever.
- Wear some jewelry.
- Hold during meditation.
- Put a piece under your pillow for peaceful sleep.
Rose quartz is great for everything and everyone. Head to your local new age store and buy some right now. Do it. You’ll love it.
Now here are some rose quartz pieces I’m currently drooling over:
