Crystals can be worn, you can meditate with them, you can place them in your home and in your workspace, but another intriguing way to utilize crystals is by incorporating them into your beauty routine.

Rose Quartz Facial Water

I understand how some information regarding crystals can seem ‘woowoo’ however, I am also coming from a perspective where I have personally experienced things that science cannot explain, and some people may not yet be ready to hear. When it comes to water – I wholeheartedly believe that water is profoundly important, and we can actively work with water in a conscious way. One of these ways is by utilizing crystals in water. I believe that placing crystals in water can infuse the water with crystal energy. The energy would be different depending on the type of crystal. Rose Quartz is an all-around great crystal to use because it carries the frequency of love, peace and harmony. These are all wonderful qualities to actively cultivate in our daily lives. Take a large bowl, fill it with spring water (or filtered) and add your crystals of choice.  Let it sit overnight and in the morning, splash your face with the infused crystal water. Replace and replenish the water as needed.

I believe that creating a ritual of self-care that involves making a conscious effort to start your day with love, peace and harmony is a beautiful way to be present and fully engaged actively creating the world that you want to live in.

Mookaite in Face Lotion

Mookaite is a crystal that is known for increasing vitality and youth. One way to utilize the energy from this crystal is to place a mookaite tumble in your face lotion. Put one or two and just leave it in there. Use your face lotion as you normally would. The mookaite will infuse its energy into your lotion. Once the lotion has all been used, simply wipe off the crystal tumbles and place in the new jar. I like to use these in my night lotion jars.

This is another way that we are being present and actively focusing on our self-care and on youthful beauty.

Crystal Gua Shas

Crystal Gua Shas have become popular in the last few years. More people are becoming aware of the importance of the lymph system and how we can assist it through various means. The lymph system is one of the key systems in fighting off infections. Utilizing the Gua Sha tool stimulates both blood and lymph flow.

I’m including a brief guide on how to use the Gua Sha tool in case you are new to these products.

How to Use the Crystal Gua Sha Tool

Before and after using the Gua Sha tool, make sure to wash it with a mild soap and warm water.

It is a good practice to massage the lymph areas before using the Gua Sha to aid in drainage. First, we would start by massaging our armpits for a few seconds, then massage the area near our clavicle towards the back of the neck with a flat hand gently massaging that area for a few seconds. Then massage around under the base of the ear and above the ear – your fingers on each side of your ear with a flat hand for about 10 times. Then, massage with our index fingers the end of our eyebrow area closest to our nose. This opens the lymph system before we utilize the Gua Sha tool.

Next, ensure that you have applied an appropriate face oil or lotion and place the flat edge of the Gua Sha underneath the ear area on the neck and make gentle strokes downwards a few strokes then move down, repeating the process, making your way down along your neck. If you have a lot of muscle tension, you can also go slightly further back on the neck to release neck tension. Always make sure to use gentle pressure.

Next, with the top portion of the Gua Sha where it looks like a ‘foot’ place the tool with your jaw in between the grooves and run along the ridge of your jawline starting near your mouth. Taking gentle small motions towards your ear, move it along the jawline to your ear. Repeat this motion about 8-10 times.

Next, you can take the flat edge of the Gua Sha tool, keep it perpendicular to your face, and run it starting near your nose, straight across towards your ear using small strokes. Repeat this motion about 8-10 times. You can gently use underneath the eye towards the ear if the undereye area is puffy or swollen. Always make sure to use very gentle pressure, especially in this area.

Finally, take the Gua Sha and start – same as before, flat edge, and perpendicular and place in the middle of your forehead and move outward to the edge of your face in small stroking motions. Repeat this motion about 8-10 times. Repeat this same process on the other side of the face and neck.

Crystal Roller

Another crystal face tool is the crystal roller. To utilize, follow the same practice as above by opening the lymph system. Apply a face oil or lotion and roll starting from the inside of the face near the nose and move it outwards towards the ear. You can roll for a few seconds and then switch to the other side. Next, start in the middle of the forehead and move outwards towards the side of the head. Roll a few times, then switch to the other side. I find this practice to be very relaxing. The cool crystal roller on your face has a soothing effect. Try adding this to your nighttime routine to help ease you into dreamtime bliss!

Crystals in Drinking Water

Another great way to incorporate crystal energy is by infusing your drinking water with crystal energy. As everyone knows, one of the keys to good health is proper hydration and a healthy lifestyle can be further enhanced utilizing crystal-infused water. There are a few different options for this practice. There are companies which manufacture water bottles with encased crystals so that the crystals don’t touch your water. I use the brand VitaJuwel.

Another option is to put crystals physically in water and let them sit overnight. Then remove the crystals and drink the crystal-infused water the following day.

Another method is to simply place your water near some crystals. If you have an amethyst cathedral (tall amethyst specimen) you can put your water near it overnight.

I do not recommend drinking water with crystal tumbles for the obvious choking hazard potential there.

  • Below is a list of crystal options to choose from:
    • For love – rose quartz, aventurine, garnet, rhodonite
    • For energy – red jasper, carnelian, bloodstone, clear quartz, citrine
    • For peace – amethyst, aquamarine, lepidolite

Note: Before utilizing, please do your research on the crystals. Some crystals I would not recommend putting into water such as malachite or selenite.

These self-care practices utilizing crystals are a great way to ensure that you are being fully present and actively working towards greater health and wellbeing! I think that you will find that incorporating even a few of these practices will bring you closer to a healthier lifestyle and inspire you to make other life affirming choices in your life!

In love, light and gratitude,
