I have always found crystals fascinating. When I was little, my dad had several larger ones on top of a closet and I used to stare at them for hours. A while back this interest spiked due to friends who have a whole showcase filled with all kinds of crystals. So I learned about all the great benefits that crystals can have in your life. After lots of research I ordered a few myself and now I am in love; crystals are great for many reasons. Not only are they simply mesmerizing to look at, they also benefit us. In this blog I will show you 10 crystals that benefit your health and your home. Find out why crystals are booming and so many people love having them around!
I do want to note that I am not a crystal expert, but I did my research and found some great benefits. If you embrace crystals, I am sure you will too, however, I cannot guarantee they have the exact same effect on everybody. I think intentions are very important when it comes to crystals and if you open up your mind for them, placebo or not, they will surely benefit your health and your living space.
This will be the first part of a multipart blog, as there are so many awesome crystals we want to introduce to you, we can’t do it in this one blog.
Crystals and Energy
Crystals have become somewhat of a hype in the last years, as more people have been turning towards alternative medicine and complementary medicine. Other things that have seen a similar uptick are acupuncture, yoga and herbal medicine.
Crystals are not just stones that look good and shiny that you can show off to your friends and family. They actually offer great health benefits for a wide range of health issues, or they can turn your home into a healthier and more pleasant living space. Even though there is no mainstream science to support these statements, it’s not just an illusion supported by millions of people around the world. There is actually something to it and it has to do with the flow of energy.
Crystals seem to somehow tap into the earth’s energy grid and use those energies to do all sorts of wonderful things for their surroundings. It is not just for you, it is for everything around you.
Crystals and Your Health
In these troubled times, where Covid-19 has scared the whole world, it is more important than ever to make sure your health and immune system are in the best possible state. You can boost your immune system with all kinds of vitamins and minerals, like Vitamin C, Vitamin D and Parsley. However, there is more to health than just your immune system. Your health is influenced by the synergy of body functions, energies and frequencies. It is affected by your life style, your nutrition, your sleep pattern as well as your emotions and mental state. It thus requires a holistic approach.
Crystals will help you energetically and metaphysically. They can boost your immunity and help your body remove toxins in many shapes and forms. There are also crystals that boost your mental state, help you overcome stress, depression, anxiety and even boost focus and emotional wellbeing. Crystals are also widely used for meditiation, Reiki and there are crystal massages that can offer relief for some health issues.
All in all, crystals are a great addition to the life of most people. We have bought our fair share and feel like our health, as well as our home, is in a better place because of the crystals.

They come in many different sizes, but somehow can form into perfect cubes. Due to its golden-yellow hue, it is also names ‘fool’s gold’. The Inca’s used pyrite as a mirror due to its shiny, mirror like surface.

The black tourmaline is a great healer and protector crystal. This one is quite special as it is said to give powerful protection against electromagnetic waves, caused by modern electronics such as television, WIFI and smartphones. This makes it one of the better crystals to benefit your health and your home.
