LUPUS am sorry to hear about your friend’s daughter and her current challenges. Aquamarine would be a great choice for her as it helps calm an overactive immune system, the driving force behind Lupus. Honey Calcite also known as Amber Calcite, supports a healthy immune system, and Hematite could help ease any pain or discomfort she may be feeling while also detoxifying her blood. Bloodstone will assist with purifying the blood as well while minimizing fatigue and being an overall healing stone.

HEart disease and Cancer
An overall helpful stone for many health issues, and especially in the case of cancer, is Amethyst, which is one of the strongest healers in the mineral kingdom. This crystal is believed to help remove all types of blockages, and can work on the subtle levels to work through and release the initial causes of disease. Amethyst is often used to raise lower energies to a higher vibration, and also to relieve pain and stress.
Natural Smokey Quartz is great at dispersing negative energies, relieving stress, and alleviating pain. This is a very protective, grounding stone, which has the quality of helping those who are dealing with long-term health issues, by lifting the depression that often accompanies those types of conditions. Smokey Quartz is often used as a detoxifying crystal as well, making it especially helpful for those dealing with cancer.
A great stone for the heart would be Rhodochrosite, which is believed to clear blockages at the heart, as well as improving circulation and blood pressure. Rhodochrosite is often placed or worn over the heart to help with heart disease.
Rhodonite is another stone with benefits for the heart, since it works very well with this chakra. It is specifically used to help clear the heart of blockages and provide stimulation. Rhodonite is also said to work on the subtle bodies, thereby addressing issues that may have preceeded the actual disease.
The stones that are helpful for both cancer and heart disease are Red Jasper and Carnelian:
Red Jasper grounds energies and heals thre aura. It is helpful for circulatory organs and is supportive during chronic or long-term diseases.
Carnelian is an invigorating stone that is believed to improve circulation and absorption of nutrients by the various organs in the body. It is thought to resotre overall health and vitality to the body. It is these last two attributes that make Carnelian especially helpful during long-term illnesses.
Thanks so much for your question about crystals to help support the healing of kidney diseases. I would suggest Carnelian, Citrine and Bloodstone. Carnelianand Citrine are both healing for the kidneys while Bloodstone is detoxifying and will help to clear away the disease.Mar 31, 2016
Swelling is a direct result of the white blood cells increasing and attacking the infection. The white blood cells increase and fight the infection faster and harder, thus causing the swelling. As a rule, when swelling occurs suddenly and painfully, it is due to viral or bacterial infection. Ear infections, colds and even small cuts can cause swollen glands.
There are definitely some crystals that can help. For lymphatic system issues, try some Amber or Larimar. These two crystals are also great to use for colds.
For general lymphatic issues, like what you have with swollen lymph nodes, I would recommend Sodalite, Sulfur, or Blue Tourmaline (Indicolite).
There are also crystals that can assist with swollen glands including Aquamarine, Blue Lace Agate and Topaz.
You may also want to consider using some Moss Agate. Moss Agate is a wonderful cleansing crystal, removing toxins from the body and circulatory systems. Charge some drinking water with Moss Agate to infuse your body with healing energy and remove toxins.
Often times, people may recommend green crystals, since green is the color of healing. However, in this case, I would caution against it. Green is also the color of growth and we want to reduce the swelling, not increase it :)

Bloodstone and Hematite are the two stones that are most commonly associated with the blood. Bloodstone, http://www.healingcrystals.com/Listing_by_Stone_Type/Bloodstone/, has strong healing energies that can help to cleanse and regulate the blood, while Hematite, http://www.healingcrystals.com/Listing_by_Stone_Type/Hematite/, carries energies that can provide cleansing to the blood, and supports regeneration of blood cells.
Of course, the Master Healer is Clear Quartz, http://www.healingcrystals.com/Listing_by_Stone_Type/Clear_Quartz/, which makes a wonderful gift. Clear Quartz is known for its ability to clear energetic blockages in the chakras, relieve pain, and strengthen the aura. Clear Quartz is a great crystal to wear for protection, and can also be used in manifestation grids or to enhance meditation.
Keep in mind that these stones should be cleansed after use, especially Clear Quartz, which tends to absorb and amplify energies more easily than other stones. Each of these stones can be cleansed with running water, except for Azurite, which may fall apart and should be saged instead. For more information on cleansing stones, please see our article on this subject here:
Clear Quartz is the most easily programmed crystal as well. Our article on programming can be found here:
For the Thyroid, we have Amber and Azurite. Amber, http://www.healingcrystals.com/Listing_by_Stone_Type/Amber/, absorbs negative energies, and has a powerful healing vibe that reminds the body of the original state of perfection, right down to the cells. Azurite, http://www.healingcrystals.com/Listing_by_Stone_Type/Azurite/, works on all organs related to the Throat Chakra (such as the Thyroid), removes blockages to one's personal growth, and can also be a great stress reliever.
breathing is concerned is Moss Agate. This is a great stone for the lungs and specifically for breathing disorders. Moss Agate can faciltate an understanding of the spiritual causes behind a physical manifestation of illness, and ground spiritual energies into the physical world. http://www.healingcrystals.com/Listing_by_Stone_Type/Moss_Agate/
Another stone associated with breathing disorders is Amethyst. Amethyst is a highly spiritual stone that is known for its healing energies as well. It is very protective, and works with the Third-Eye to connect one to Spirit. Amethyst has been used for diseases of the respiratory organs. Amethyst can be used during meditation to help one banish unproductive, negative emotions, clearing the way for understanding of the root causes of disease. http://www.healingcrystals.com/Listing_by_Stone_Type/Amethyst/
Finally, Amber is another healing stone for breathing and lungs issues. It can absorb negative energies and transmute them into positive. With its warm vibrations, Amber brings much healing where it is needed most, and is quite helpful for the mucous membranes of the lungs. http://www.healingcrystals.com/Listing_by_Stone_Type/Amber/
Rose quartz is one of the most important healing crystals for the heart and circulation. It is created from liquid magma, the energy of the earth’s core, and cools in large formations. Its pink colour is the result of tiny inclusions of the mineral dumortierite, which is also known in healing crystal therapy as the ‘take-it-easy stone’. These aspects make rose quartz a powerful crystal (magma energy) with gentle effects (pink colour). It pro- motes the capacity to keep your cool, even in testing situations (dumortierite), and also reduces stress, pressure and emotional problems, as well as supporting physical well-being.
However, the most important aspect for strengthening the heart is rose quartz’s ability to focus our attention on a basic need for calm, sleep, recovery, good nutrition, protection and security. This reinforces our vitality and improves our lifestyle, encouraging us to adapt (almost) automatically to a way of living that promotes a healthy heart. In addition, rose quartz inspires us to allow space for those aspects of our lives that nurture well- being, pleasure and the fulfilment of emotional desires, restoring our joie de vivre and enthusiasm, while also allowing us to approach others with sincerity and a warm and open heart. Rose quartz soothes heartache and enables us to give and receive intimacy. It makes us sensitive and sym- pathetic, promoting love, empathy and sensuality.
Against this background, rose quartz influences a number of heart and circulatory problems. It can help with cardiac arrhythmias’ and improves blood flow to and around the heart; it also mitigates cardiac insufficiency and stabilizes cardiac activity during exertion and extended strain (including strain caused by emotional problems). Rose quartz reduces tachycardia (raised heartbeat), soothes feelings of constriction and closeness, and helps to protect against ‘heartfelt fear’ and heart neuroses (heart complaints with no organic cause that arise from concern about the heart). In addition, rose quartz can stabilize circulation (in the case of blood pressure that is either too low or too high) and improve blood flow.
Other healing crystals
Agate strengthens the heart, protects the blood vessels and stabilizes cir- collation. It promotes feelings of security, thereby steadying the emotions. Amethyst reduces blood pressure, taking pressure off the heart. It also helps to lift feelings of constriction and tightness.
Green aventurine quartz may help to prevent the build-up of deposits in the coronary arteries and as such may also help to prevent heart attack. Heliotrope soothes inflammation (including that caused by stubborn, lingering colds) and helps to combat narrowing of the blood vessels. It is used to help prevent heart attacks and as an emergency crystal during heart attacks (until the paramedics arrive and only after the patient has been placed in a comfortable position and received any applicable first aid).
Magnesite lowers the blood pressure, relieves pressure on the heart and helps tackle the effects of overexertion or long-term strain and pressure.
Rhodonite strengthens the heart, especially after illnesses and operations, and stabilizes circulation when blood pressure is too low.
In the case of heart complaints all these crystals can be placed or worn near the heart (e. g. as a pendant or necklace). Necklaces or bracelets are also an option for circulatory problems, as is gentle gemstone massage for local blood flow disorders. Gem water or gemstone elixirs can usually be taken internally, but external use is always recommended first, as it is easier to regulate and assess dose strength over a period of time.
.Diopside carries the green ray of healing, and can be used to facilitate great healing in many ways. It has been specifically used to ease the inflammation and pain of Crohn's Disease.
Yellow Jasper can be used to help cleanse and detoxify the internal organs, including the liver, gall bladder and intestines. Yellow Jasper also helps to strengthen the immune system, relieve nausea and indigestion.As with all Jaspers, Yellow Jasper will also help to absorb pain.
Champagne Tourmaline can help to stimulate physical regeneration of ailing or diseased organs, including intestines and skin. Use Champagne Tourmaline to assist in detoxifying the body and the removal of blockages.
Green Fluorite helps to support balance and healing in the intestinal area. It also helps to reduce inflammation and ease pain.
breast Cancer. Choose the one(s) that feel right to you.
A very powerful metaphysical stone, Smokey Quartz emits a high level of energy. Use Smokey Quartz to absorb and transmute negative energy. Smokey Quartz is also a great stone for pain relief, and is often recommended to absorb the effects of radiation and/or chemotherapy.
Rhodochrosite is a wonderful healing and support stone. It fills the body with healing pink light and love.
Physically, Seraphinite is known for helping cellular issues such as cancer, assisting in the regeneration of healthy cells. Many crystal healers love Seraphinite for its ability to bring light energy into the DNA, for accelerated healing. Its ability to focus on the Heart and Crown Chakras adds to its healing effects in these regions of the body.
Rose Quartz is also known to help heal breast cancer and is an excellent support stone for most other types of cancer as well.
Hashimoto’s Disease & Underactive Thyroid:
Because Hashimoto’s Disease is an autoimmune disease, Carnelian or Serpentine can be used to balance the energy of your immune system. Try wearing a piece of Carnelian or Serpentine jewelry (especially a pendant on a short chain near the thyroid gland) to get the immune system back into alignment so that it no longer disrupts thyroid function. The pendant should be worn continuously and should be cleansed regularly, at least once per week, to ensure maximum benefit to your immune system. Amber, Bloodstone, Clear Calcite, Orange Calcite, Tangerine Calcite, Lapis Lazuli, Malachite, Black Tourmaline, Turquoise, and Vanadinite have also been known to balance the energy of the immune system so they would make good alternative choices to the Carnelian or Serpentine.
The symptoms of Hashimoto’s Disease are quite varied and often mimic symptoms associated with other health problems. Fatigue, ranging from mild to severe, and sleepiness are very common in people with Hashimoto’s Disease. Getting your immune system back into balance will often help reduce the fatigue associated with this condition, so using the Carnelian or Serpentine, as described above, is a great way to help treat chronic fatigue. However, for those days when you feel particularly sluggish, try using a piece of Ruby or Garnet (carried in your pocket) as a quick and easy pick-me-up. Citrine has also been shown to be beneficial for treating chronic fatigue and tiredness so it would make a good alternative choice to the more expensive Ruby or Garnet stones.
Because Hashimoto’s patients feel constantly run-down due to fatigue, depression is a common secondary symptom of the disease. Orange Calcite, Yellow Fluorite, Lapis Lazuli, Fire Opal, Pyrite, Lithium Quartz, Rutilated Quartz, and Tiger’s Eye (Blue, Golden, or Red) have all been used successfully for treating depression and its associated symptoms. You may try holding one of these stones over your Sacral Chakra (your emotional center) or over your Solar Plexus Chakra (the center where negative emotion is most commonly stored) for 15 minutes per day, everyday, for at least three to four weeks. Be sure to speak with your physician about treatment options for your depression (especially if it is moderate to severe). Instead of holding the stone over the chakra centers, meditating with your chosen crystal can also help you to work through your depression. Make yourself comfortable in a place where you will not be disturbed and hold the crystal in your hands. Take a deep breath in and exhale gently. As you exhale, feel yourself releasing any feelings or emotions that are not for your highest good. Continue to breathe in and out, releasing any unwanted energy as you exhale, until all negative emotion has been released. Take another deep breath in and feel the energy of your crystal begin to enter your physical body. It fills you up with positive energy. Continue to breathe in and out, allowing the positive energy from the crystal to expand outward, until it fills your entire physical body. Continue this breathing with your crystal, feeling the positive energy begin to expand out into your energy field, until it has filled your entire aura with positive, healing energy. When you feel ready you can slowly open your eyes, wiggle your toes, and drink a glass of water to ground yourself.
Constipation is a more minor side-effect of Hashimoto’s Disease, but can be quite uncomfortable if it is chronic. To get things moving again, try using an Apricot Botswana Agate. You can hold the stone over your belly for 2-3 minutes before and after each meal time. You may even want to try moving it in small circles while holding the intention to ease discomfort and regulate your system. You may also want to try stones associated with healthy digestion such as Ametrine, Golden Calcite, Honey Calcite, Carnelian, Citrine, Yellow Fluorite, Red Garnet, Gaspeite, Pink Heulandite, Red Jasper, Apple Aura Quartz, Papaya Quartz, Sunstone, Imperial Golden Topaz, or Green Zoisite.
Weight gain is often attributed to Hashimoto’s patients (especially in middle-aged women). Click Here to check out our blog on the Top 4 Tips for Using Crystals for Weight Loss.
Dry skin and hair are also commonly associated with Hashimoto’s Disease. Green Aventurine is useful for treating skin problems in general, as are Brazilianite and Rainbow Fluorite. Pink Calcite, Pink Chalcedony, & Peach Stilbite may also prove useful for returning skin or hair to its normal, healthy appearance.
Women with Hashimoto’s Disease may also suffer from heavy or irregular menstrual periods. Citrine, Peach Moonstone, Rainbow Moonstone, and White Moonstone can help regulate menstruation. Wearing a gemstone bracelet made from one of these stones is a simple way to help keep your body on a regular cycle. It’s best to wear the bracelet all the time (if possible), but wearing it at least during the time of your cycle (starting a few days before it begins and continuing to wear it until a few days after it has ended) is necessary for effective results.
Heavy menstruation can sometimes lead to anemia (iron deficiency) which can cause feelings of coldness, even when others are warm and comfortable. It can be uncomfortable and irritating to feel constantly cold in your body. Green Apatite, Hematite, and Green Kyanite can aid in absorbing and using appropriate levels of iron in the body (treating the anemia and thus, reducing the coldness felt in the body). If coldness is felt, but your iron levels are shown to be normal, Clear Fluorite may be used to help warm your body when you are feeling cold.
Goiter is also sometimes associated with Hashimoto’s Disease. See the “Thyroid Goiter & Enlarged Thyroid” section below for more information about treating thyroid goiter with crystals.
Grave’s Disease & Over-Active Thyroid:
Similar to Hashimoto’s Disease, the symptoms of Grave’s Disease are quite varied and often mimic symptoms associated with other health problems.
Anxiety and nervousness are common symptoms of Grave’s Disease. I have helped treat many clients with anxiety problems over the years and the two stones that seem to work best for most people are Aquamarine and Lepidolite. Having a small “touchstone” in your pocket that you can hold when you start to feel anxious is a quick way to help you cope with your feelings. You can rub the stones with your fingers and thumb 9similar to a worry stone) to stimulate the reflex points in the thumbs and release happy hormones into your body. This action, when combined with conscious control of the breath has worked wonders for my clients time after time. Purple Botswana Agate, Alexandrite, Epidote, Yellow Fluorite, White Opal, Electric Blue Aura Quartz, and Lithium Quartz have also proven useful for treating anxiety and nervousness.
Another symptoms frequently experienced by Grave’s Disease sufferers is irritability. Blue Calcite, Dumortierite, Sikhote-Alin Meteorite, Pink Dendritic Opal, Blue Tara Quartz (Quartz with Blue Tourmaline Inclusions), Cobalt Aura Quartz, Ruby-Kyanite, Red Rutilated Quartz, Septarian Nodule, and Violet Tourmaline are all useful for removing anger and irritability and replacing it with compassion, understanding, and peace. These stones help get your emotions under control and allow you to see the situation for what it really is, removing your irritation with the person or people involved.
Fatigue is also sometimes associated with Grave’s Disease. See the “Hashimoto’s Disease & Under-Active Thyroid” section above for more information about treating fatigue and tiredness with crystals.
Increased or irregular heartbeat may not occur in all people with Grave’s Disease, but it is a fairly common symptom of this disorder. This can be quite a frightening experience, leading to additional feelings of anxiety which can exacerbate the heart issue. Apricot Botswana Agate, Green Aventurine, Barite Rose, Dioptase, Green Heulandite, Pink Opal, Pink Nirvana Quartz, Seriphos Quartz, and Peach Stilbite all work to correct and heal disorders of the heart. Green Heulandite has the additional quality of aiding the removal of excess energy from the heart center ( which may be the energetic cause of this symptom). If you have an increased or irregular heartbeat, you should immediately seek medical attention, but these crystals may be useful while you are in route to your physician or to the hospital.
Excessive sweating is a more minor symptom of this thyroid disorder, but it can be uncomfortable, embarrassing, or even lead to dehydration if not attended to properly. Apricot Botswana Agate can help treat the effects of minor dehydration on an energetic level while you work with your physician to restore the correct level of fluids and electrolytes to your physical body.
Diarrhea and frequent bowel movements are also common in Grave’s patients and can also lead to dehydration. You can use the Apricot Botswana Agate, as described above, to help treat your dehydration. However, to treat the bowel issues, Green Zoisite can be very useful. Carry a piece in your pocket to help restore balance in your body.
Because of the primary symptoms associated with Grave’s Disease, many Grave’s patients have secondary symptoms such as difficulty sleeping. Chrysoprase can encourage restful sleep and Howlite can help you to feel more rested after even brief period of sleep. White Opal encourages healthy sleep patterns so that you can return to a normal sleep cycle. Sleeping Beauty Turquoise helps to treat sleep disorders (especially insomnia). Any of these crystals may help you sleep better simply by placing them in your pillow case or on your bed side table. Since you will be using them daily, be sure to cleanse them regularly (at least once per week) for best results.
Change in the menstrual cycle of women suffering from Grave’s Disease are commonly reported. See the “Hashimoto’s Disease & Under-Active Thyroid” section above for more information about regulating your menstrual cycle using crystals.
Goiter is also sometimes associated with Grave’s Disease. See the “Thyroid Goiter & Enlarged Thyroid” section below for more information about treating thyroid goiter with crystals.
Some people with Grave’s Disease may suffer from a variety of eye issues including bulging, inflammation, redness, tearing, swollen eyelids, or sensitivity to light. Clear Calcite, Chrysoprase, Citrine, Emerald, Blue Tara Quartz (Quartz with Blue Tourmaline Inclusions), Seriphos Quartz, Tiger’s Eye (Blue, Golden, or Red), and Turquoise are all general eye healers. Small, lightweight stones may be placed on closed eyelids (or just above the eyes on the brow if the eyes are too sensitive to place stones there) for 3-5 minutes, twice per day, until the symptoms subside. This treatment has been shown to be most effective when both eyes were treated at once, but if this is not possible, you may treat one eye, and then the next.
Thyroid Goiter & Enlarged Thyroid:
Thyroid goiter (an enlarged thyroid) is most commonly caused by a lack of iodine in the diet. You should work with your physician and a nutritionist to ensure that you are getting proper nutritional requirements, but you can also use healing crystals to help you absorb the appropriate vitamins, minerals, and nutrients from the foods you eat. Golden Cat’s Eye Apatite, Peach Barite, Brazilianite, Leopard Skin Jasper, Marble Jasper, Green Kyanite, Peach Moonstone, Chlorite-Included Quartz, Papaya Quartz, Sunshine Aura Quartz, Serpentine, and Vanadinite all aid in nutrient absorption while Bornite aids in balancing the nutrients to the right levels for your body. These stones can be easily utilized by wearing a piece of jewelry (programmed to aid in nutrient absorption and regulation) or by carrying a stone in the pocket. Alternatively, you may want to create a small crystal grid using one or more of the stones listed, and then charge your food within the grid. To do this, simply place your plate, bowl, or glass within the center of the grid for 1-2 minutes prior to eating while holding the intention that the food is charged with the energy of the crystals. When you consume the food, eat with intention and purpose, allowing the food to nourish your physical body and provide that which is needed for your highest good.
When the thyroid is enlarged, it can often cause additional symptoms such as swelling or tightness in the neck or trouble swallowing. Honey Amber works to soothe the thyroid gland while Blue Fluorite, Blue Topaz, and Blue Calcite add cooling energy to reduce swelling. Wearing these stones in a pendant on a short chain, close to the neck is best. However, an alternative way to get some relief is to hold your chosen stone over the thyroid gland for 5-10 minutes, 2-3 times per day as needed.
An enlarged thyroid can also result in coughing or wheezing, trouble breathing, or hoarseness. Honey Amber and Honey Calcite can reduce coughing whereas Rose Quartz aids in opening the lungs to reduce wheezing. Blue Fluorite, Blue Topaz, and Denim Lapis soothe the throat in general, making it easier to deal with these associated symptoms. To use these stones, hold your chosen crystal over the throat chakra as symptoms occur. The Rose Quartz can be held over the Heart Chakra (over the lungs), over the thymus, or over the Throat Chakra to open the lungs and aid your ability to breathe easily.
Thyroid Nodules & Thyroid Growths (cancer is rare):
Although the cause of thyroid nodules is often unknown, some nodules may be caused by Hashimoto’s Disease or by a iodine deficiency. See the “Hashimoto’s Disease & Under-Active Thyroid” section above for more information about treating Hashimoto’s using healing stones. See the “Thyroid Goiter & Enlarged Thyroid” section above for more information about treating iodine deficiency with crystals.
Thyroid nodules can cause hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism, so they are often undiagnosed until they are quite large and then detected via a physical examination of the thyroid.
If the nodules are causing hyperthyroidism, then they can be responsible for causing several uncomfortable symptoms including rapid heart rate, nervousness, and anxiety. See the “Grave’s Disease & Over-Active Thyroid” section above for more information about treating these symptoms with crystals.
The nodules may also be responsible for increased appetite or loss of body weight. These seemingly contradictory symptoms mimic symptoms of other illnesses and often lead to misdiagnosis until the nodules have grown quite large. Angelite can be used to control body weight, especially when you are rapidly losing weight at an unhealthy rate. Carry a piece in your pocket or wear as a bracelet to help regulate your body’s weight. To help regulate the appetite, we suggest using Blue or Green Apatite crystals placed on your dining table or in your dining area.
Clammy skin is also associated with thyroid nodules. Colorless Fluorite may be used to warm the body while Apricot Botswana Agate can regulate perspiration. Hold these crystals in your receiving (non-dominant) hand when you’re feeling a bit clammy and visualize yourself returning to a comfortable state of being. This may take anywhere from 2-10 minutes. You may do this as often as needed.
If the nodules are causing hypothyroidism (a result of Hashimoto’s Disease) or if you are experiencing the symptoms associated with the disease (fatigue, weight gain, hair loss, dry skin, or constant coldness) see the “Hashimoto’s Disease & Under-Active Thyroid” section above for more information about treating this condition with crystals.
General Treatment Options for Thyroid Conditions:
If you suspect that you may have a thyroid condition, but have not yet confirmed this with your physician, it is important to get an accurate diagnosis as quickly as possible. In the meantime, you may use healing stones like Angelite, Blue Apatite, Citrine, Blue Fluorite, Lapis Lazuli, Rutilated Quartz, and Blue Topaz are all beneficial for general thyroid balance.
Alternatively, you can create a “mojo bag” or medicine pouch for treatment of each thyroid condition, using one stone for each of the symptoms associated with that particular condition. For information about how to create your own medicine pouch using healing crystals, check out our blog post about Creating & Using Crystal Medicine Bags.
There are several crystals that can assist in the area of bone growth. For general bone issues, try some Apatite.
- Apatite can help with such issues as calcium absorption, bone and joint issues, as well as easing pain and/or discomfort.
- Howlite helps with the absorption of calcium into the bones and teeth, and can balance the emotions. Howlite also assists in relaxing and releasing muscular tension.
- Calcite has been associated with the bones and joints, and balances the amount of calcium in the body. Calcite can also help to improve the body's absorption of important vitamins and minerals.
- Fluorite helps to strengthen bones and surrounding tissues.
- Pyrite helps to treat bones and stimulates cell formation. Pyrite consolidates energy, creating a foundation for intention and grounding.
To strengthen the skeletal structure, both Lapis Lazuli and Selenite will be very helpful.
ADD and ADHD are associated with the Third Eye chakra. Carry with you (or your child). You can also place it under their pillow if they can't or won't carry it with them. This way it can work with them and help them while they sleep.
In addition to Lepidolite my oldest son, who is also ADHD, has recommended Charoite, Sodalite, and Lapis Lazuli (his personal favorite). These can help bring a calming energy into their lives. From our experience, although these do not cure ADHD, they do help calm the child and offer them more focus. My son says he feels a lot better when he carries it with him or even makes a small grid in his room with these crystals.
Azurite-Malachite and Fluoritefor joint pain. Azurite-Malachite can help relieve joint pain and slow bone loss due to arthritis. Fluorite also helps alleviate arthritis pain and is particularly helpful for swollen, tender joints.Jul 22, 2013
Arthritis Crystals #1 – Blue Lace Agate is known for treating removing blockages of the nervous system and treats arthritic bone deformities. Take a bath for 15-20 minutes with this stone in the bath water.
Arthritis Crystals #2 – Apatite heals bones and encourages formation of new cells. It assists in the absorption of calcium and helps bone, cartilage, motor skills, teeth, joints and rickets.
Crystals to help with breathing difficulties:
The preeminent crystal for breathing difficulties would be –
Moss Agate – is a stabilising stone that is strongly connected with nature. It is an excellent stone for treating the lungs and specifically for breathing difficulties. It relaxes and opens up congested bronchia and lungs. It aids in understanding the spiritual causes behind the physical manifestation of an illness and grounds spiritual energy into the physical world. It boosts your self esteem and helps to release fear and deep seated stress. Moss Agate speeds up recovery and can be used to counteract chronic conditions. It is anti inflammatory, boosts the immune system, and treats colds and flu and infections.
In my opinion the next top six crystal choices would be:-
Amber – is an outstanding healing stone for breathing and lung problems, especially asthma and allergic reactions. It absorbs negative energies and transmutes them into positive. It brings healing where it is most needed, and is helpful for repairing mucous membranes and the lungs. Amber resonates with the throat and is a powerful chakra cleanser and healer. It also encourages your body to rebalance and heal itself. As an elixir it is an excellent natural antibiotic.
Amethyst – is a highly spiritual stone that calms apprehension, overcomes stress and is well known for its healing energies. It is very protective and is well utilised for treating diseases of the respiratory organs and with breathing difficulties. It stimulates the immune system. Amethyst clusters are often deployed in the home to keep the air and life force energy clean and positive, which contributes to easier breathing.
Apophyllite – has a calming effect and is an effective stress reducer that overcomes anxiety, worry and fears. It allows you to feel comfortable in your body. It provides for a purer transmission of healing energy. Apophyllite works on the respiratory system, healing asthma attacks, promotes regeneration of the mucus membranes, heals allergies and is good for alleviating breathing difficulties.
Chrysocolla – calms, cleanses and re-energises your energy systems, while reducing mental tensions. It is excellent for throat and chest issues as it relaxes the body and emotions allowing for relaxation of the chest muscles and lungs, making breathing easier. It has a cooling action that helps heal throat infections. Chrysocolla re-oxygenates your blood and the cellular structure of your lungs, bringing about greater lung and breathing capacity.
Morganite – helps to oxygenate and restructure disordered cells, clears the lungs, treats the nervous system, and relieves stress related illnesses. It is useful when used separately and especially helpful in conjunction with other treatments for asthma, emphysema, and tuberculosis.
Vanadinite – guards against dissipating your energy and coaches you in how to conserve your energy at the physical level. It treats chronic exhaustion. It is supportive for breathing difficulties such as asthma and congested lungs. Vanadinite facilitates the practice of circular breathing. Note: Use this stone with caution as Vanadinite is poisonous due to its lead content. It works best as an elixir, so a crystal elixir, essence or crystal water must be made using the indirect method.
The following crystals are also recommended and are no less useful when dealing with breathing troubles.
Angelite – is soothing to the lungs and throat. It is a soothing stone used for relieving inflammation and repairing tissue and blood vessels.
Emerald – is a life affirming crystal that also provides the strength of character to overcome life’s difficulties. It treats sinuses and lungs and is recommended for alleviating breathing issues.
Iolite – is a potent energy for treating sinus and respiratory disorders. It kills bacteria and creates a strong constitution.
Lapis Lazuli – alleviates pain, boosts the immune system and benefits the respiratory system. It is also protective and stress relieving.
Malachite – is an extremely versatile healing stone that builds strength and is a valuable aid for healing asthma. Note: Malachite is toxic, so a crystal elixir, essence or crystal water must be made using the indirect method.
Peridot – is a potent cleanser, releasing and neutralising toxins on all levels. It promotes psychological clarity and well-being. It heals and regenerates tissue, has a tonic effect and aids and strengthens the lungs.
Pyrite – supports the principle of perfect health and well-being. It benefits the circulatory and respiratory systems by boosting oxygen in the bloodstream. It helps alleviate asthma and bronchitis.
Rhodochrosite – acts as an irritant filter and allays asthma and respiratory problems. As an elixir, it helps to relieve infections.
Rutilated Quartz – is an effective energy integrator and a very efficient vibrational healer. It boosts immunity and lung function and is supportive for chronic conditions. It is particularly helpful for asthma and bronchial disorders.
These crystals are all powerful healers for improving and assisting with breathing difficulties. Best results should be obtained by keeping them with you and close, by carrying them on your person. All may be made into elixirs, essences or crystal waters, which you can sip throughout the day.
Perhaps, one of the most overlooked crystals for gaining relief from breathing upsets would have to be –
Halite – commonly known as Rock Salt. It is a strong purifier and a wonderful healer in other ways as well. It works to cleanse toxins from the cells and tissues of the body. Halite provides a sense of purpose normally required to live a healthier lifestyle.
The benefits of Halite are best obtained by breathing microscopic salt particles into your lungs. The easiest way to do this is via Speleotherapy, or salt mine therapy, an ancient therapy undertaken by entering a salt cave or mine. Today rooms are built from salt bricks, specifically for this purpose.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Everything worthwhile in life is dependent upon a good supply of energy and having plenty of it is vital to life’s full enjoyment, so here some simple remedies to deal with the problem:
Any of these stones worn or carried around the lower body; base and sacral chakra area, will help overcome tiredness: Amethyst, Carnelian, Rose Quartz, Fire Agate and Pyrite. If you are verging more into fatigue add one of these: Ametrine, Bloodstone, Sunstone, Dioptase and Hematite. Combining any of these with a Clear Quartz, Smokey Quartz or Rutilated Quartz adds another dimension to your energy boost.
Another suggestion is to wear a Clear Quartz pendant with an anklet of Black Onyx. You could also tuck a Black Onyx or a Hematite tumble stone in the top of your sock (both if you like). A friend of ours uses wire cages to hold the crystals she wishes to work with and simply pins them to clothing, or ties them on in the area she wants them to be with a leather cord.
Clear Quartz has been called the "master healer"� and is considered to be the most versatile, cleansing, and programmable stone in the mineral kingdom. It is thought to have the ability to focus, amplify, magnify, store, and transfer energies. Just holding a Quartz in your hand is believed to change how your aura looks, by filling in holes and brightening dull areas. Quartz is considered to have a natural tendency for harmony and so carrying or wearing one is believed to be beneficial and protective to the owner. Remember what I said about intention, though. When using Quartz, you must focus your positive intention into the crystal, and then use the "programmed"� crystal for your purposes.
A stone that might relate to your situation is Green Tourmaline, as some use it specifically for nervous system issues (which is a possible cause for fibromyalgia). It is considered to be a great stone for self-healing and is thought to aid the flow of healing energy through the body. Simply place the Green Tourmaline on the affected area(s).
Another helpful stone we offer is Tourmalated Quartz, which is believed to carry the properties of purification, and recovery from negative inluences. The Black Tourmaline included in Clear Quartz helps to remove negative energies from the stone.
Every "dis-ease"� is a result of an imbalance in the body and balacing your chakras and meridians can help a lot. You may want to try our chakra assortments or even our Healer Special as these assortments contain many additional stones that may be helpful.

How to Choose the Right Grounding CrystalYou may be thinking to yourself, how do I choose from these grounding crystals? Which one is the right one for me? When choosing which crystal to use, trust your intuition. We cannot stress this enough! Everyone will vibe with different crystals. They will feel different to everyone. If you are shopping for grounding crystals in person, pick up each one and see how it feels in your hand. Choose the one that feels good when you hold it—you will know. If you are shopping for grounding crystals online, choose the one that you are visually attracted to the most. Many times one will stand out to you immediately; this is the one for you!
Sage has been used as a common cleansing process for quite some time, since it is the quickest way to clear negative energy from not just an object, but its surroundings, too. You may have heard of the process of smudging your home with sage, meaning to travel from room to room and waft the smoke into corners of the home where you feel like there is the most negativity. Sage cleansing is powerful enough to only require your crystals to be in the smoke for three to four minutes. To cleanse your jewelry, you hold it above the smoke and you’ll notice it subtly shaking. When it stops moving, you know your jewelry is done being cleansed. Our Sage Cleansing Set comes with one sage stick, a feather to waft the smoke and a raw abalone shell to snuff out the fire and leave your crystals, jewelry and home cleansed and ready to emit positive energy and protect from negative energy.
If you’d rather look into another method for cleansing with smoke, Palo Santo Wood is also effective for cleansing crystals. Palo Santo is a tree native to South America, and has been burned by the Incas, Shamans and other indigenous people as ways to offer medicinal and therapeutic power. In terms of cleansing your crystals and jewelry, you would do exactly as you did with sage, allowing the crystals to bathe in the Palo Santo smoke. Palo Santo Wood can also be used to help cleanse your mind and heart as you visualize your intentions.
It may seem odd to cleanse crystals with crystals, but it really is one of the best cleansing methods available, especially if you want to cleanse your crystals more often. Place your crystals or jewelry on a clear crystal, like Quartz or Selenite. They can dispel different types of negative energy from the body and mind, which your crystals absorb when used. When you lay your crystals and jewelry on Selenite, you will be simultaneously cleansing and amplifying their energy. In order for ultimate cleansing, keep your crystals and jewelry on your cleansing crystals for a minimum of six hours.
When it comes to getting the most power from your crystals and jewelry, you need to make sure that you’re in tune with them. When you feel that they are emitting less energy, make sure to cleanse them with any of the methods above! With proper cleansing, you make sure they are radiating the highest possible energy.
henever we meditate or practice chakra healing with crystal body layouts, we use selenite crystals to balance the energy that’s rising and releasing. The selenite healing properties are extremely beneficial for both a space and the body, which is why we always keep selenite close by while healing.
In our healing room, we have large selenite crystals to ground and re-stabilize our energy whenever we may need it.
Before your meditation or healing practice, use selenite to cleanse your body of lower vibrational energy. Selenite cleansing techniques are simple. If you have a large selenite crystal, you can simply place your bare feet over it. If you have a selenite wand, you can comb the crystal from the top of your head all the way down your body. This clears your energy and shields you from negative energy. Once your body is cleared with selenite, you’ll be ready to enter a state of healing.
Selenite also protects us during our practice. When practicing with meditations, yoga, breath work or chakra healing, energy rises from the base of our spine through the crown of our head. If this energy rises too quickly, we become ungrounded and can experience different side effects from dizziness, overheating or intense fear. Crystals add another layer of power to mediation and healing, intensifying the energy in your body, making it important to take extra steps keep your energy grounded. Selenite healing properties balance the energy you create during your meditations and healing sessions, allowing your energy to vibrate safely throughout your body. Simply place a piece of selenite in front of you if your sitting in meditation, over your chest if you’re laying down, or on each side of your body if you’re laying down with other crystals on top of you.
In addition to selenite healing properties transforming the energy of your body, it also creates shifts in the energy of a space. Keep a large selenite crystal by the door to your sacred space or living space to prevent negative energy from coming in. Having a large selenite crystal in your space will also create a constant flow of calming, positive energy. If you have it in your sacred room, it will help to keep the vibration of the room high, allowing for deeper meditation and healing to take place.
For a final boost for your healing practice, place your crystals on top of your large selenite. This will recharge the energy of the other crystals or your crystal jewelry.
like to place healing crystals on my mat when I do my daily yoga practice. Before class, or practicing in my home, I place a couple crystals on the top edge of my mat, and several on the bottom edge. They make me smile when I see them during plank pose. I feel a little more grounded and connected in mountain pose knowing that the energy of Mother Earth is close to my feet.
One of my favorite things about a daily yoga practice is how it takes you within yourself, helping you to regain balance. Holding a crystal in your hand, or laying several on you body, and breathing deeply for 10-minutes has a similar affect. Many people practice yoga to help reduce anxiety and stress. Healing crystals are often times worn to help relieve anxiety and stress as well. Merging the two creates a powerful, symbiotic energy combination that deepens your yoga practice and increases spiritual growth and self-exploration. It takes you to a deeper level of healing, creating a closer connection with your yoga practice, your crystals and, most importantly, your self.
Once I did yoga with crystals, I was instantly hooked. Each day on your yoga mat is different because each day, we are different. The yoga allowed me to open myself up and let go, and having the yoga crystals on my mat helped me feel to feel grounded and elevated. Once you incorporate crystals into your yoga practice, you will feel the energetic shift, and wonder why you haven’t been using them all along.
Set up your crystals in a grid around the perimeter of your mat.Leave your crystals in the grid during your yoga practice.Feel the energy of the crystals around you as your progress.Place your crystals on your body for savasana.Let your yoga crystals realign your chakras during savasana.
Below are just a few of my personal favorite crystals for Yoga. Trust your intuition when choosing which healing crystals you want to incorporate into your practice and where you choose to place them. Everyone will resonate with different crystals, and you may also be drawn to different crystals on different days. If you are looking for a basic crystal grid for your yoga mat, I have created a simple layout for your mat incorporating black tourmaline, selenite and lepidolite. This a basic crystal grid layout to which you can add other crystals on top of.
Yoga crystals for the top edge of your yoga mat:
- Selenite crystals for clarity and expansion (I also like to place two pieces on the sides of my mat)
- Lepidolite for calming and transformation
- Blue Lace Agate for soothing energy and for stress & anxiety relief
- Fluorite to transition from the chaos in your mind and focus on the calmness of your breath
- Black Tourmaline to release fear, anxiety and stress
- Shungite to neutralize negative energy, and turn it into positive.
- Hematite for grounding and stability
- Black Onyx for energetic protection
- Place Rose Quartz over your heart for love, forgiveness and to open the heart chakra.
- Place blue Sodalite, Chrysocolla or Aquamarine over the throat chakra for truth.
- Place Amethyst over the third eye to restore harmony between the upper and lower chakras.
- Hold Quartz crystal or selenite in each hand for expansion, clarity and enlightenment.
- Place chakra healing stones on each of the 7 chakras for balance, alignment and chakra cleansing.
Healer heal thyself.
lue is the color of water, the ocean, the sky and healing. In many ancient civilizations, like the ancient Egyptians, blue crystals were used in their rituals–specifically Lapis Lazuli–as they were believed to represent heaven. Blue gemstones promote spiritual awakening, serenity and tranquility. Using blue stones, especially when you are under stress, is said to surround you with calming, soothing energies to relieve stress and calm the mind. They can be used to reopen the energetic flow in areas that are blocked, encouraging you to relax, open up communication and find inner peace.
Aquamarine, Sodalite, Lapis Lazuli and Turquoise are just a few of our favorite blue gemstones to work with. We have outlined a few “crystal tips” on how to incorporate blue stones into your home, office or sacred space:
Aquamarine stones carry the energy of the ocean.
Like the ocean waves crashing on the shore, Aquamarine lets worries, stress and anxiety ebb. When you bring it into your environment, it fills the space with relaxation and rejuvenation to release stress and anxiety, instilling peace, calmness and tranquility. Aquamarine crystals embody the energy of the ocean and the sea, and are the perfect crystals for all you “landlocked mermaids”. They are also believed to restore youth and beauty, having anti-aging qualities that rejuvenate the skin–try our aquamarine beauty ritual! Placing these blue healing stones on your desk while you are studying; its tranquil energy will enhance your focus and concentration. Hold a piece of aquamarine when you have something you need to say, as it will keep you calm and help you communicate with ease. Sit in a circle of aquamarine stones when you are meditating to deepen your connection with your inner self.
Sodalite encourages self-expression & chases away fear.
Courageous Sodalite will chase your fears away. In ancient Greece, artists, sculptors and painters highly valued these blue healing crystals for they believed it brought creative energy, insight and helped them to trust their intuition. It vibrates with the blue ray, helping to open all lines of communication and with throat chakra healing. Sodalite encourages self-expression, helping you to trust your own judgement and not to second guess your own decisions. When working on a team project, give each member a piece of Sodalite to bring forth new ideas and creative expression; it will also facilitate smooth communication. Wear sodalite, or carry a piece in your pocket, to raise your self-esteem and feel good about yourself!
Lapis Lazuli is wonderful for meditation & enhancing intuition.

he constant stress, never-ending activity and frenetic pace of modern life aren’t always good for the soul. And those things are also bad for the heart. In fact, Americans today experience more blood circulation and blood pressure problems than any other time in history. According to recent statistics, nearly one-third of American adults experience high blood pressure–that’s about 75 million people! Only half of those people have their condition under control – lowering blood pressure through some combination of medication, diet & exercise. While high blood pressure usually affects older Americans, it’s also becoming prevalent in younger people. Stress, poor exercise and eating habits have all contributed to these historically high rates of blood pressure problems.
Traditional blood pressure medications alleviate symptoms, but do they truly address underlying causes of stress, anxiety and chaos? More to the point, are they doing more harm than actual healing? Some of the effects of medications include kidney malfunction, vision issues, anemia, digestive problems, anxiety and many others. Are you looking to lower blood pressure naturally? Besides altering your diet and implementing an exercise regiment, there are several crystals for blood pressure that have historically been used in alternative healing modalities.
As you may be able to imply from the name, Bloodstone is one of the premier crystals for blood pressure problems. Although these healing stones are an all purpose healer and cleanser, Bloodstone stones are specifically beneficial for cleansing and purifying the blood, benefitting the circulatory system to help regulate blood circulation. Some believe that meditating with bloodstone daily can help to prevent high blood pressure, reducing irritability, stress and aggressiveness. Bloodstone also encourages overall health and wellness, energizing the body to encourage you to be more active.
Another one of the healing crystals for blood pressure is Lapis Lazuli. These healing stones help to eliminate toxins from your body and are believed to help high blood pressure problems. It helps with lowering blood pressure naturally while also boosting the immune system. Black Tourmaline is another beneficial crystal as it helps to regulate blood pressure and strengthen the nervous system. Sodalite stones can also help to lower high blood pressure. Place these crystals on your heart for 15-20 minutes each day, and carry (or wear crystal jewelry with them!) as needed.
Note: We must share the standard disclaimer that we are not a doctors and cannot give out medical advice. Healing crystals for blood pressure should be used as a compliment to other therapies and not as a replacement for regular medical care.
