Tips & Tricks:

Choosing a Crystal: Let the crystal choose you. Many report feeling a “pulse”, heat, coolness or a shock when they find a crystal right for them. If you feel nothing, just choose which ones physically appeal to you.

Cleansing Your Crystals: Crystals are thought to absorb energy, so experts recommend cleaning them as soon as you get them. A salt water bath or burning sage nearby are common methods.

Do It Your Own Way: You’ll find hundreds of different opinions on crystals, how to use them, what each does, etc online. Decide what works best for you and embrace the positive vibes!


While investing in a hobby like crystal healing is a popular alternative method for coping with various issues in your life, it’s important to remember that these crystals are not to be used in place of a medical professional’s advice. If you are struggling with stress, anxiety or depression, consider adding a supplement like Mood Lift to your daily routine. Stress doesn’t just bring us down, it actually depletes the body’s storehouse of the amino acids, vitamins and minerals that support our mood, energy and sleep. Nested Naturals Mood Lift uses a blend of micronutrients to help your brain naturally produce more of what it needs to strike a happy, calm balance.
