A Beginners Guide to Crystals

Why do we use Crystals?

Everything is energy. Even ourselves. Everything in this world creates a vibration, whether good or bad. Our passion lies in both raising our own vibration, and, enabling others to raise theirs. We want to allow that good feeling high vibrational energy to be with us as much as possible throughout our day. There are many tools we can use to help us achieve this. Some of them include; meditation, yoga, breathwork, EFT, connecting with the cyclic nature of the moon and earth, essential oils and crystals. 

Crystals are beautiful gifts from the earth, given to us by our nurturing mother in the same way that she provides us with plants, oxygen, water, and sunshine. All the things that support our life force.

Crystals, in particular, provide us with healing vibrational energy and connect us to ourselves and Mother earth. Crystal healing takes place when we position a crystal near us or on our bodies. Our bodies instinctively recognise the higher vibration being emitted from the crystal and, by nature, raises our own vibration to match this.

Crystals essentially just amplify the energy we already innately have within us, allowing us to step into love, joy, happiness, confidence, strength, or whatever other energies it supports. It may be that the energy of your crystal is allowing the mind to calm, to be more restful, and in turn this releases overwhelm, aids better sleep and so on.

You can use Crystals for healing through both physical & emotional needs, and we, personally, love to carry our crystal friends with us anytime we leave the house.

There's so many to choose from.... How do I get started?

If you are just starting on this wonderful journey with crystals, deepening your connection with Mother Earth and her beautiful gifts, then these are the 7 main stones we would recommend. They correspond to the 7 main chakras (energy centres within the body) and we believe are the foundation to any crystal collection.

Clear Quartz

Quartz is the most powerful for healing and energy amplifying. It absorbs, stores and regulates energy. It is also an excellent tool for unblocking energy, thus making it a powerful ally in your manifestations. 

It is a master healer and can be used for any condition or ailment as it is personally programmable. Once you program or set your intention for your Quartz, it will constantly put your intention out into the universe, even when you, yourself, are not thinking about it. 

It will also raise and amplify the energy level of any other crystals that come in contact with it, ensuring that the rest of the crystals in your collection maintain their happiness and clear vibrations. Clear Quartz stones also bring clarity of the mind, helping you to focus on and feel decisive in your dreams and desires.


Amethyst is a powerful and protective stone. Sometimes referred to as a 'natural tranquiliser' it relieves stress, strain, soothes irritability, balances mood swings, dispels anger, rage, fear and anxiety. It is highly effective at dissolving negative energy, transmuting it into love, and protecting you from sadness, grief, all types of harm and ill wishes from others.

With Amethyst's strong healing and cleansing powers, it calms and stimulates the mind, helping you become more focused, enhancing memory and improving motivation.  


This beautiful vibrant stone is known as the bringer of peace and, since ancient times, has been used as an energy protector and a shield against negativity. 

This beauty is like a good luck charm for your health and, just like Clear Quartz, is a master healer. It is known to bring harmony to the body, promote peaceful communication with yourself and others, and stimulate energy and general well-being within the body. 

Rose Quartz

Rose Quartz heals emotions and transforms relationships with others, drawing in love and harmony.

The Rose Quartz stone meaning is one of unconditional love. Rose Quartz will bring your consciousness to a higher level in order to facilitate healthy love in your life. This level of consciousness will enable you to see things from a different perspective, helping you to forgive and understand current and past situations. The healing properties of Rose Quartz will fill you with the wisdom required to deepen connections with your loved ones. 

Rose Quartz also allows you to recognise your own need for compassion. It causes you to see that you deserve forgiveness and understanding from yourself as much as the other people you are trying to give it to do. 

Associated with the water element, the healing properties of Rose Quartz are naturally fluid. They wash out toxic energies and emotions that you have become trapped inside of you, bringing calm to the body and mind, making it a powerful stone for anxiety or stress.

Tigers Eye

The Stone of Empowerment. Tigers Eye is all about courage, motivation, self-worth and empowerment. Often, fear can pose a challenge to our success. It can trap you in your place, and influence your actions. The Tiger's Eye crystal helps to transform those toxic feelings into courage and self-confidence. It helps you shift your perspective so you can see the way forward, even in times of fear. 

Tigers Eye is a stone that allows you to break through barriers and discover your authentic self through testing your perceived limitations. 


Carnelian, also known as the mother stone, will encourage you to "go with the flow" and step into your creativity. It helps us to connect with the emotion we store deep within our hips, giving you the courage to release any stored fears, to bring balance to those emotions and more energy to the body. A real get up and go stone.

Black Tourmaline

Tourmaline is a protector that transmutes negative energy into positive energy. It also protects against EMF (low-level radiation) all while working to ground you. 

Here’s all the places I have mine.......

-  Under the car drivers seat for safe travels

-  At our front door at home to keep any negative energy outside the home and only allow the positivity to enter...... some say you should have a piece for each family member

-  Near the computer to protect against EMF

-  A small piece on me so I’m protected as I go throughout the day.
