Crystals are having a moment as they’ve become one of the biggest style trends this year. Designer brands like Balenciaga and Paco Rabanne have incorporated crystals into their collections, while celebrities like Victoria Beckham, Anya Taylor Joy, and Bretman Rock have openly talked about using crystals in their everyday life. As people are looking for holistic ways to enhance their health, as well as a comforting connection to the earth, it’s no wonder why crystals have become trendy again. While you can certainly place an amethyst or rose quartz stone in your bag, experts say that the best way to carry crystals is to wear them as jewelry, since more contact with the body can enhance their healing properties. Here’s how you can wear healing crystal jewelry to boost your mental health and overall wellbeing.
Wear it as a pendant on a long chain
Before wearing your crystal jewelry, it’s important to care for them to keep them in top condition. Wipe your crystal jewelry with a soft cloth to get rid of dust and oils after wearing, and use a Tibetan singing bowl or a crystal bowl to re-energize them. You can also cleanse your natural crystals by placing them on a windowsill under a full moon to enhance their healing properties, as well as to release impurities and negative energy. To prevent scratches and damage, store your pieces in a jewelry box or display tray. Doing so will keep your jewellery organized and ensure that they’re on hand whenever you need them.
If you’re new to crystal jewelry, one of the best and simplest ways to wear them is to thread a crystal pendant on a long chain, then wear it under your clothes so that the crystal is in direct contact with your heart chakra. Some of the best crystals to wear this way include rose quartz, green jade, rhodonite, emerald, peridot, and kunzite. These stones not only aid blood circulation and promote heart health, but they also bring more love and compassion into your life.
Some people may think that it doesn’t matter whether you wear crystals on your left or right side, but actually, each side of the human body has an influence on the healing properties of crystals. If you wear your jewelry on your right arm or hand, then that means that you want to send the healing power towards others, while wearing them on your left arm or hand allows you to receive the healing benefits.
For instance, if you want to have peace and harmony in your home, wear an amethyst or rose quartz bracelet on your right arm, but if you want to learn how to love yourself more and be kinder to yourself, wear it on your left arm. If a loved one is traveling and you want to protect them, you can wear a black tourmaline, yellow jasper, labradorite, moonstone, or aquamarine bracelet, or a ring on your right hand. If you’re the one who’s traveling, wear the jewelry on your left side to keep you safe. You may also wear crystal jewelry on both sides of your body if you want to protect and heal yourself and your loved ones at the same time.
Wearing crystal jewelry allows you to look after your health and wellbeing, and it also helps you to look after and heal your loved ones. Try these tips to wear your crystal jewelry and see how they can help to make you healthier, happier, and more at peace.
