Crystals for healing
Crystals for healing have been used ever since the Ancient Egyptians. They are a gentle, relaxing and natural way of healing your body and mind.
Crystals, stones, rocks and gems
Crystals, stones, rocks and gems are all the same. You may see ‘healing stones’, ‘crystal & minerals’ or ‘Gemstones’. These are all names for the same thing, in fact, any stone or rock can be used in healing. Ever been to the beach and a pebble caught your eye that you had to pick up? Maybe the stone was made for you. Perhaps it feels good to hold. Then this is a stone that will work well with you. It connects with you. It makes you feel calm and relaxed.
