The alarm annoyingly slams its way into your sweetly sleeping ears. Time to get up!
If you’re like me, that means a hurried breakfast and getting the kids ready for school, then off we go to a busy day just brimming with adventures. Then it’s home and homework, dinner and dishes. Toothbrush time and then to storyland where the dreams will fill the night time skies.
It’s very important that during these increasingly hectic times that we all seem to be living in, that maintaining the proper frequencies with protection stones and crystals becomes even more important. Although there are many, many more, I’ve compiled a list of just 7 practical uses for them (and other crystals) in and around your home. Feel free to comment your own below!
1) Grid your home
Gridding your home essentially means placing protection stones and crystals in specific places around your home to ward off negative energy and enhance your protection. To protect your entire home, place crystals in the four main corners of your home. Using Clear Quartz, an energetic cleanser, and/or Amethyst in the home will ward off negative energies. One of the most protective and grounding crystals, black Tourmaline, is my favorite for using in the four corners of my home. It is a powerful cleanser of all negative energies, allowing more positive energy in the home. Selenite is a powerful angelic stone, and is known for bringing comfort and peace to the home. When using these crystals in your home, you will notice more peace, less stress and more positivity in everyday life.
2) Under Your Pillow
If you or a family member suffers from nightmares, there are several stones and crystals you can use to ward off bad dreams. Several years ago, my daughter was waking up almost every night, crying because of a terrible nightmare. After placing Citrine under my daughter’s pillow, her nighmares completely stopped, and she slept through the night. Also great for nightmares are Amethyst and other violet crystals. Amethyst is also an excellent sleep aid for those that have trouble sleeping peacefully. If you wake up in the morning and often cannot remember your dreams, Kyanite will help you recall them with more detail. This crystal also enhances lucid dreaming. Jade is known as the “dream stone” and will also help enhance your dreams.
3) In Your Vehicle
Most people spend many hours a week in their cars, but we seem to forget about clearing the negative energies from our vehicles. If you seem to find yourself overly stressed out while driving, placing some Amber, a powerful protection stone, in your car will greatly relieve some stress. Turquoise in the car will protect you from evil and physical injury. Obsidian is also a great protection stone used for warding off negativity. Also,Garnet and Amethyst are great crystals for physical protection while traveling. If you or a family member suffers from motion sickness while in the car, Yellow Jasper is the perfect stone to use to ease those symptoms.
4) In Your Water
Yes, placing certain stones and crystals in your water has many benefits. The healing properties ofShungite has mystified scientists for years. It has been known to heal many illnesses, and Shungite even cleans water of almost all organic compounds and bacteria. Placing shungite in a glass or bottle of water before drinking will purify the water and has even been known to cure many illnesses. LeavingShungite in the water for just 30 minutes will kill bacteria. For best results, leave in the water for 2-3 hours. If you are using Shungite for its medicinal properties, leave in the water for 8-48 hours before drinking. Shungite has been known to help with allergies, diabetes, colds, fatigue, kidney and liver diseases, asthma and much more! Beyond curing ailments, Shungite will also provide a significant boost to your immune system.
There are also many other crystals and stones you can use in your water for various healing properties.Amethyst is excellent for stress relief. Citrine is great for a boost of energy. Use green aventurine for a calming effect and heart healing. For extra creativity and higher self-esteem, use Carnelian. Use Fluorite for any health issues. It is important to not use the raw form for some crystals, because they may break apart in the water. For best results, place in your water 8-10 hours before drinking. Remember, some crystals would be poisonous to use in your water, so check any other crystals not listed here before using.
5) Next to your computer
I spend a lot of time using my computer, so I feel it’s important to place healing crystals and stones on my desk. If you have an online business or are thinking of starting one, place a piece of Sunstone next to your computer for increased success in your endeavors. Fluorite placed on the computer or next to it will help to protect you from harmful emissions from your computer. Amazonite is great for protecting you from electromagnetic “smog” and negative energies. To increase your drive and protect yourself from all types of negative energies, use Hematite. Sodalite is also perfect for all that electromagnetic pollution and is great for enhancing your mental abilities.
6) Healing Crystals For Dogs and Cats
You may read that and laugh, but animals benefit from crystals and stones, just as we do. Crystals can be placed in your pet’s favorite sleeping place or even attached to the collar. If you have noticed, pets can suffer from depression just like we can. If your pet seems lethargic or just not his normal self, try some Lithium Quartz. Dalmation Jasper has a calming effect on hyperactive dogs. If your pet has separation anxiety, try Dioptase when you have to leave the house. Leopard skin Jasper is great for digestive healing and could also prevent “accidents” in your home. Rose Quartz will bring feelings of peace and security to your pets, just like it does for you.
7) In every room of the house
Earlier, I mentioned using protection stones in gridding your home, but they can also be used in every room of the house for added benefits. You can even grid just one room by placing stones and crystals in the four corners. Placing a Carnelian stone next to your front door will provide protection and invite abundance into your home. To benefit your health and well-being, place a large piece of Celestite in whichever room you prefer. When others visit your home, they may bring their negative energies along. A great way to prevent those negative energies from entering your home is by placing Hematite under your doormat. Also, by placing Obsidian in the room with the most traffic (like a hallway), negative energies that have collected there will be absorbed. My favorite crystal for placing in all rooms of my home is Rose Quartz. Rose Quartz is a very powerful “love” crystal and releases negative emotions and replaces them with feelings of love, compassion and joy. All those in the vicinity of this crystal will feel its benefits.
You can benefit most from certain crystals by placing them in specific rooms.
In the kitchen: My favorite crystal for keeping in the kitchen at all times is Amethyst for enhancing culinary creativity.
In your bedroom: I spend a lot of time in my bedroom, which also happens to be my office. The master bedroom is the “relationship” room as well as where we spend a lot of time sleeping and doing various other things. There are so many stones and crystals that could be used in this room, it’s hard to pick just one, but if I have to choose, I choose blue Howlite (Turquonite) to encourage passion. Also, Howlite is great for a more peaceful sleep.
In your children’s bedrooms: Citrine and Amethyst for peace and happy dreams.
In the living room: If you have a lot of family discussions in your living room, Rhodonite will help with your family’s patience. As you may have noticed, TVs put off a lot of negative energies, so I suggest a piece of Turquoise to help disperse those energies.
In the bathroom: Rose Quartz and Smoky Quartz are excellent for placing in your bath water for a more relaxing bath. They will also help clear away some negative energy.

Ever wonder which healing crystals to use to help direct the energies connected to wealth and prosperity? I did too. Who doesn’t need that little extra?
It’s important to remember that these crystals do not ensure success. What they will do however, is act as an enabler. As you focus and direct your energies toward your goals they will help accentuate your propulsion.
Here is a short list of healing crystal for wealth that I think are some of the better ones I’ve found very useful in my own journey. As my journey continues and I discover which are most beneficial and where, I find myself adjusting as needed. I hope this list helps, and feel free to leave a comment about your own experiences below!!

Essential oils are concentrated liquids extracted from various plants. They have been used for thousands of years for spiritual and emotional uplifting, cosmetic purposes and physical healing. Along with healing crystals, essential oils are an excellent and proven way to heal naturally. Click here for more information on essential oils.
2)On the skin – It is very important NOT to apply essential oils directly to the skin until they have been diluted with a carrier oil (such as coconut oil, almond oil, etc). Essential oils are highly concentrated and should always be diluted. There are a few mild essential oils that can used in its concentrated form, like lavender, but can still cause skin reactions. Always check the labels on the bottles. Compresses can also be used for skin issues, joint pain, bruises and body aches. You will want to put 10 drops of oil into 4 oz of hot water, then soak your cloth in the mixture and use on the problem area.
3)In the bath – Essential oils should always be mixed withsalts or an emulsifier (milk, sesame oil, etc) before being placed in the bath. Directly placing oils in the bath can cause dermotoxicity. Mild essential oils, like lavender, rose, sandalwood and others, are considered safe to use in the bath. I would definitely not use any spicy oils, such as cinnamon or thyme. When I use mild essential oils in the bath, I mix 5-10 drops of oil with 1/2 to 1 cup of my bath salt or emulsifier.
1)Pregnant and nursing women should ask their doctor before using any essential oils.
2) Do not ingest essential oils (there are some exceptions but most oils are not safe to ingest)
3)Do not apply directly to the skin, always dilute with carrier oil.
4)Keep out of reach of children.
5)Avoid prolonged exposure
6)Avoid synthetic fragrances, use only pure essential oils.
7)Do not use on infants or children without consulting a physician.
8)Avoid contact with eyes

Eucalyptus oil is known for its antiseptic qualities and can be massaged on the skin for muscle and joint pain and to treat skin infections. This oil is also a great natural remedy for head lice. Great to use in the bath to reduce a fever and for its antiseptic and refreshing attributes.

If you are new to the wonderful world of healing with essential oils, buying a quality diffuser should be your first step. As mentioned before, the 3 main types of diffusers are candle diffusers, electric heat diffusers, and cool air nebulizing diffusers.
Pros: Uses less oil than some other diffusers, essential oils diffuse without destroying the healing properties, good quality, oils are placed in cups, which keeps them from destroying the mechanisms in the machine, quiet
Cons: Replacement cups are pricey…and you will have to replace the flimsy cups…a lot. Requires cleaning after each use, some complain it is not as quiet as the name suggests, I do not personally think it is very loud
Pros: No heat, preserves natural essence and healing properties of essential oils, easy to use, good quality, diffuses oils nicely, no water, diffuses 100% oil, easy to switch between oils
Cons: some say noisy (think fish tank), can use oils quickly (because you do not mix with water in order to keep the potency of oils), takes some soaking time to clean, older models did not auto shut off when the oil is empty, i believe that now they have timers

When I first came across this product, I had already had some experience with healing crystals and stones, but I was intrigued with the all-you-need package to get started with healing crystals. I also knew that Judy Hall has years of experience with healing crystals, and I also enjoyed some of her other books in the past. I was pleasantly surprised when I received the kit. The128 page book was very easy to understand with a lot of useful information. I was also surprised with the quality of the 12 stones included.
Such a low price for a great beginners book AND 12 quality stones!
Thanks to many Amazon sellers, this product can be found for a really good price! I won’t say how much I paid for my set, but it was definitely more than what you can buy it for. The 12 stones included in this kit alone are definitely worth more than the asking price. Each stone has a wide range of uses, and all of the information you need about them, and how to use them, is in the book. The quality stones included are amethyst, red jasper, orange carnelian, sodalite, yellow jasper, green aventurine, and blue lace agate for healing the Chakras. Also included are five “master healer” stones: bloodstone, clear quartz, rose quartz, labradorite and smoky quartz.
My only complaint
I wouldn’t call it a complaint really, but I would have liked the stones to be a little larger. Also, it would have been great to have something like a velvet pouch to carry the stones in. Other than that, I cannot really find any faults with this healing crystal guide kit.
In conclusion, The Crystal Healing Pack is a MUST have for beginners!
This all-in-one kit is perfect for anyone wishing to get started with healing crystals and stones. The informative book includes color illustrations and all you need to know about using the included stones, cleaning them, and healing the chakras. The easy to read information is very specific on where to place the stones and the healing each stone will provide. Anyone having trouble connecting with healing stones and getting them “to work” will be very pleased with the results after using this set.
