Ever since I’ve started to get into gemstones and crystals — it has become such a fixture in my home.
It’s said that different gemstones and crystals give off certain energies and healing properties. They can range from protection, calmness, self-esteem/confidence boost, wisdom, balance and groundedness — just to name a few.
With all of these different types of stones and properties — it’s hard to know which to add to your home. Now, it’s strictly up to you for which stones call out to you and feel the best / have the right fit! However, for those – like me – who can’t decide — here’s a few suggestions on which gemstones and crystals to add to your home and various living spaces! [*]
The Best for your Desk and Workspace – Amethyst
I’m definitely going to bring a chunk of one to the office for my desk! This stone is a natural stress reliever — it encourages inner strength, peace, spiritual growth and intuition. [**] I also suggest having one (or a cluster) of these in your workspace at home as well!
The Best for your Bedroom – Rose quartz
Known as the stone of love, its gentle qualities are said to open your heart to all types of love. Whether it be self-love, romantic, family and for everything else — the bedroom is the best place to surround yourself with love. [**] Since it’s not necessarily a very neutral color, placing this pink stone in your room can be in areas where it’s hidden or to bring a bit of color to your decor — whether it be in a bowl with other stones, a candle holder, book-ends — the possibilities are endless!
The Best for your Kitchen / Dining room – Calcite
Does it still count as being in my kitchen if I placed this stone in my living room which is right next to my kitchen? I’m going to say yes — especially since I only have so much space in my 700+ sq ft apartment. Calcite radiates calm and soothing energy. It helps restore balance to the mind, body and spirit! [**] The kitchen is a great space for this crystal because it’s where we keep ourselves and our loved ones nourished, as well as being a busy and frequent gathering area. Calcite comes in a variety of colors, so you’re able to still get its properties while choosing whichever fits your color palette best!
The Best for your Living room / Family room – Selenite
Selenite is ideal for energy cleansing. It’s said to unblock stagnant and remove negative energy. Bringing peace and mental clarity, this is a great crystal for this space because it’s where we gather to be with our loved ones and or an area to rest/relax after a long day. [**]
The Best for your Bathroom – Clear Quartz
Clear Quartz amplifies energy and enhances clarity of the mind. [**] It’s a good crystal to have in this space because it’s an area we are with our thoughts and have time to ourselves — whether it’s taking care of business or relaxing with a hot shower or warm bath.
I can’t wait to add some of these new crystals to my home ASAP! Are any of these in your home? How are you experiencing + enjoying them? Let me know!
