3 Reasons to Anoint your Crystals with Essential Oils
Crystals are often imprinted by the places and people who have held them before. Therefore crystals should be reprogrammed and cleared before using them.
We always cleanse our crystals when they arrive, putting them in the sun, bathing them in water and anointing them with essential oils, therefore claiming them as our own with an affirmation and invitation.
Anointing crystals can be a one time effort or it can be an ongoing practice. We anoint when we want to introduce ceremony into our spiritual practices such as meditation. It is recommended to hold your crystal in your left hand when meditating because it is connected to the right side of your brain, which is attuned to your consciousness and your third eye.
We like to anoint our crystals in our hand, adding oils to our palm and then placing our crystal inside the palm. Close your fist and send intention and white light. You can then open your hand and cover the stone on all sides. You can then wipe your stone off or lay it in the sun to dry. Using the oil left in your hand, rub your palms together and make prayer hands and breathe in deeply placing them in front of your face and nose. Connecting our breath, the oils and the crystal is a powerful ceremony that will have benefits beyond the chakras.
You can also put your stones in a a small bowl and anoint them. You can choose a simple oil, using about 1% of the pure oil and a carrier like jojoba or a massage oil for the rest. Keep the oil in a bottle you can reuse for your other crystals. They will appreciate the homecoming! You can even use this oil for a massage or self anointing before a hot bath when oils are safely diluted. Oils and liquids draw energy from your crystals and make these liquids even more vibrational and healing.
If you have our Chakra Boost products you can get match the chakra balancing oil to the stone and chakra, creating a specific stone and healing for each chakra point. Many crystal stores sell chakra stone kits. We have sourced beautiful heart shaped crystals and they are available on our website.
Crystals and Chakras
Crystals and gemstones are classified by their seven unique crystalline structures:
It is said that the structure of the crystal provides its healing qualities. Cubic crystals are good for meditation and include: diamonds, garnets and fluorites. Whereas hexagonal crystals like emeralds and aquamarines are best for building energy and vitality, so can be used for healing, balancing and communicating.
Tetragonal stones are good for absorbing negative energy, providing protection and positive vibrations. You can spend a lot of time learning about each crystal and how to apply its unique properties to specific chakra healings.
Many of us associate the color of the stone to a specific chakra and there is nothing wrong about this. Knowing that crystals work in many ways is key to using them in your healing rituals and practices.
More important than anything is knowing that each crystal is unique and possesses a spiritual, energetic and resonance that you can activate for your maximum healing. This is the "pet rock" we've all been waiting for.
Crystals enhance the action of essential oils. Quartz varietals are extremely popular, easy to come by and affordable. There are so many types and colors and matching the vibration of stones to the vibration of oils takes our healing practice to the next level. From rose to smoky, amethyst to strawberry, quartz stones are a mixture of silicon dioxide and other elements. Quartzes are the perfect stones for chakra healing.
