How to Infuse Crystals Into Your Everyday Life
A crystal a day...
From celebs to sex toys, it seems like everyone’s hopping on board the crystal-healing train. Though there’s still no definitive scientific evidence that crystals have true healing properties, many stand by the ancient practice—which includes holding crystals, placing them around your home or, even, on certain parts of the body—as a way to reduce anxiety, manage stress, maintain balance, and more.
Now that crystals have reached white-hot levels of trendiness, crystal-infused products aren’t hard to come by, in the form of everything from skincare to accessories, home decor, and even drinking water. With that in mind, we’ve rounded up some of the best items for infusing healing powers into your daily routine. Zen awaits you in the gallery, below.
