By far the most common question we get here at LBOR is: What should I do with my crystals? We love this question, because not only are there are so many ways to answer it, but it's a question that's not often asked about flowers. People really want to connect, engage, and find meaning in their crystals – and we think that's pretty cool.
How you connect with your crystals is entirely up to you, and often it's completely personal, (watch LBOR creator, Kiera Fogg's take on that here), but since fall is right around the corner, and it's all about getting cozy and ready for the winter, we're sharing our top 5 favorite crystals to use around the home.
The beautiful yellow Citrine is a stone of good fortune and abundance. According to the principles of Feng Shui, when placed in the farthest left corner in the home (in relation to your front door), it is believed to attract wealth and prosperity to the household. Citrine can be found in our Abundantia (Good Luck), Karma (Thank You), Cocoon (Housewarming), and Rainstorm (Serenity) bouquets.
Often called the "stone of unconditional love," this beautiful, pink gem is the stone to keep nearby if you wish to attract more love into your life, whether it be romantic love, self-love, or simply more harmony in your relationships. Place this crystal in a high traffic area of the household – such as the kitchen or living-room – to promote a peaceful, harmonious environment. Rose Quartz can be found in many of our bouquets
including our Karma (Thank You),
Moonstruck (Romance), and Lotus (Mother).
Genuine Obsidian Arrowheads of ancient warriors can still be found buried beneath the earth in many parts of the world. Obsidian is believed to be a powerful repellent of low energies. This hand-carved, black gem is believed to repel negative energy and keep it from entering the home, when kept at the front door, underneath the doormat. The Obsidian Arrowhead can be found in our Cocoon (Housewarming) and Warrior (Strength) bouquets.
Pyrite is the stone to have if you are goal-oriented, especially when it comes to business. A stone of action, this gem is believed to promote vitality, persistence, and self-confidence. If you have a home office, be sure to place this sparkly beauty on your desk to infuse your work-space with positive energy. Pyrite can be found in our Wildfire (Success) and Affinity (Friendship) bouquets.
No bathroom is complete without a little Himalayan Salt Rock. Many of our recipients tell us that they like to toss their crystals into the tub with them to infuse the water with the energy. We like to take it a step further and toss a vial of Himalayan Salt Rock into a hot bath, because it dissolves in water and is believed to ease stress and help with mental and emotional detoxification. Himalayan Salt Rock can
be found in our Rainstorm (Serenity) bouquet.
