We get that the whole healing crystal thing can feel a bit contrived, but hear us out.
People have been using crystals to heal and affect their energy for thousands of years, dating all the way back to ancient Mesopotamia. The ancient Egyptians used stones like emerald and turquoise in their amulets to protect against negative energy and illness. In the Bhuddist tradition, crystals are used to aid in mediation and promote peace. And in their modern resurgence, crystals are being used for anything from calming anxiety to attracting your soulmate. Whether it’s a simple placebo effect or power inherent in the crystal itself, there’s something about choosing to make a change in your energy that in our experience just tends to work.
