Healing is something that we all need to do in our lives, whether it’s from a recent breakup, saddening news, or some bad events that you may need to overcome. As such, it’s not healthy for you to hold it all in; you need to learn to release it. Thankfully, there are crystals that don’t work to suppress your feelings, but they help to gently guide you through the healing process and strengthen your spirit to help you overcome those hardships while simultaneously offering protection. Alongside the crystals, we strongly recommend pairing them with essential oils to help enhance and empower those healing and protection properties as well. Here are some crystal and oil pairings that we suggest!
#1 – Clear Quartz with Rose, Jasmine, Vetiver, and Chamomile
When we think of healing, the first thing we think of is Clear Quartz. Clear Quartz is known as the “Master Healer” crystal, as it not only works to heal and realign all of your chakras, but it can heal and soothe you from within. If you really want to amplify your crystal’s effects, then we recommend our Healing essential oil blend, which is composed of Rose, Jasmine, Vetiver, and Chamomile. Vetiver is especially used as a grounding agent and helps to keep you deeply rooted.
#2 – Black Tourmaline with Sage, Frankincense, and Sandalwood
Black Tourmaline is known as a dual-purpose stone, for it works as a healing and protection stone. It is a fantastic stone for targeting and removing negative energies and purifying them to the core. It’s an anxiety-diffusing, confidence-inspiring crystal that helps the wearer be released from their inner negativity. Sage and frankincense have been used in a lot of meditation circles (sage is especially popular for crystal healing!) and sandalwood helps to provide mental clarity and inner peace. The three oils together make a powerful combination alongside Black Tourmaline.
#3 – Smoky Quartz with Sandalwood
Smoky Quartz is a special crystal, as it works to improve overall wellbeing. Smoky Quartz works similarly to Black Tourmaline, as it is not only a perfect grounding stone, but it clears a mental pathway for you and cleanses negative thoughts. It also detoxifies the mind, soul, and body as well as protects your body from radiation. Sandalwood, as mentioned earlier, provides mental clarity and inner peace. Sandalwood also aids in relieving anxiety and depression and helps to relax and calm the mind and body overall.
#4 – Amethyst with Lavender, Lemon, Frankincense, and Sage
Amethyst is known as the stone of Protection and is a stone that even crystal beginners can resonate with. Amethyst’s calming properties can initiate soothing and peaceful dreams by aligning our mind and spirit together, thus making us feel more in tune with our inner selves. It also brings clarity to our minds and it helps to boost the mind into flowing more freely mentally and metaphysically. To enhance the true powers of amethyst from within, we pair this crystal with our Protection blend, which consists of Lavender, Lemon, Frankincense, and Sage. Lavender is used to releasing your inner negativity and pent-up emotions, helping them flow more freely and be removed indefinitely. Lemon offers a cleaner feeling and works with Sandalwood to find and provide mental clarity.
#5 – Black Obsidian with Patchouli, Vetiver, Fir, Cypress, and Spruce
Lastly, we have Black Obsidian. Black Obsidian, also known as Apache Tears, is a grounding stone that helps to navigate through grief and loss. This stone is perfect to confide in if you’re experiencing a moment of sorrow. It works to draw your negativity out of your spirit and into the earth’s core so it can be neutralized permanently. Black Obsidian has a strong connection to the earth which makes it ideal for keeping you rooted and helps to tap into the metaphysical and spiritual realms. Though Black Obsidian is a powerful enough stone on its own, you can make it stronger with tree oils like fir, cypress, and spruce, and plant oils like patchouli and vetiver. Patchouli assists with combatting your feelings of isolation and separation anxiety from other people. Since these feelings can invoke depression and overwhelm you, patchouli can stabilize you and ground you.
Use any or all of these stones when you feel like you need some healing to help balance yourself out and realign your emotions!
