Why Amber Should Be Your Next GO-TO Crystal

One crystal I never shut up about is Amber... which actually isn't even a real crystal. Amber is fossilized tree resin, but it still gives off AMAZING energy and health benefits for all ages (babies too!)

I used to work at a crystal store and we carried Amber teething necklaces. You would be amazed at how many couples came back with their little ones to rave about how amazed they were at how the Amber really helped! The stories our staff would hear were amazing - like the crystals gave the little ones immediate relief. So awesome! 

If you are interested in buying an Amber teething necklace, PLEASE BE SURE to be cautious while shopping. The photo above is from a reputable seller with amazing reviews and genuine amber. Don't believe me? Read her reviews! You can shop from AmberAndHaze by clicking right here or the photo above.  

Checklist for Amber teething necklace shopping: 

  • Is it safe? (Just because someone can string amber on elastic doesn't mean they should! knotted is the way to go with a safe clasp.)
  • Is it from a reputable seller? (read the reviews, read their bio, get in contact with them!!!!) 
  • Is it genuine amber? (acrylic and glass do not do the same thing, friends.)

I suffer from TMJ pain... well - not anymore I should add. I stopped experiencing the pain that comes along with grinding your teeth after I slept with Amber. Folks - I could have went with Amethyst, but that crystal can really mess with you dreams. I could have went with quartz - A "master healer" - but it keeps you awake. I could have went with any other crystal but I figured if Amber works for a baby's teeth, I'm sure it will work for mine. The next morning after trying this I had NO pain in my jaw! I do not sleep with the crystal anymore and haven't in two years and I have no issues with this anymore.

I do wear Amber almost every day as a necklace, around my waist, or as a ring. I have struggled with terrible sciatic pain and back pain and every time I wear Amber I notice significant difference. 

I wear this crystal during my moon cycle. WOMEN - This is one of the best healing stones for period cramps and pains that I have ever met in my life. Wearing it against your body during your moon cycle helps your feminine nature realign. Say goodbye to terrible PMS symptoms... This crystal has got your back!

Amber is amazing for the digestive system (find out more here!), reproductive system and fertility, endocrine system, physical pain, and so much more! It is also an amazing stone for enhancing creativity, joy, and personal power. This crystal identifies with the Solar Plexus and Sacral Chakras. 

Depression and anxiety are also treatable with the use of Amber. Check out this article on: Healing Depression with Crystals

Throughout history, this crystal was one of the causes of death to millions of people, but when handled correctly, it is one of the best healing stones for recovering from abuse trauma, it can help you during the birthing process, and can help improve your love life. Most people know this crystal because of its distinguishable bands and swirls of all shades of green.

Detoxify!

I find this so ironic because Malachite is a toxic stone itself, however it can help you detoxify your life! It can help you cut out dead-end friendships, dead-end relationships, toxic acquaintances, or bad habits and patterns. It can also help you physically and spiritually by detoxifying any EMF's or radiation you've been exposed to. 

Learning Lessons

Malachite is an excellent teacher in lessons. This makes it a great stone to carry when you are trying to heal a relationship, trying to shift your mindset, or just in general. It can help you pick up on the patterns and habits that are holding you back or are detrimental. It is a great stone for helping you to push forward, but not without true growth. 

When you wear this stone, you may suddenly see a difference in the way you think. You may suddenly start to think before you act or speak, so it is a great stone for learning cause and effect. In relationships, this stone is absolutely key because it can help you see what situations, words, or actions lead to an altercation. Many couples grow stronger with the help of this stone. Conversely, it can help give you the courage you need to push yourself out of a dead-end relationship and into a brighter future. 

Abuse Recovery

Because Malachite is such an amazing stone for learning lessons and pushing forward, it can help people understand why the abuse occurred to help them from blaming themselves. It can also help you gather the strength to grow out of fear. Many people who suffer from PTSD or have survived abuse live their lives in a state of vigilance, fear, and avoidance. This stone can help you be strong enough to live your life with a new style of confidence. 

For survivors of sexual trauma, it can get rid of a lot of the physical trauma that tends to linger. It is a great stone for the male and female sexual organs, so it can help reconnect you to your sense of sexuality so you can find pleasure in sex again.

"Midwife Stone"

Malachite is an important stone in a female's life. It can help heal the sexual organs, regulate hormones and menstrual cycles. It has been known as "The Midwife Stone" since ancient times because it can help ease the pain for women during labor and help them give birth pain free. Wearing this stone during labor or having it near you can help your body energetically fight the pain. 

!! CAUTION !! This Stone Is Toxic

Be careful when handling this stone, as it has a history of causing death! When tumbled or polished it is TOTALLY safe to touch. But be careful touching a raw piece by always washing your hands afterwards. 

In the Ancient Egyptian and Greek times and the 16th, 17th, and 18th century, it was very popular to use Malachite pigment in makeup. However, applying this green copper ore to one's face was later found to cause a series of serious symptoms, and later found to kill. 

This Emerald Green pigment was also used in paint for walls and art. Many people died because of the fumes of this paint emanating through their homes. It is said that the wallpaper in Napoleon Bonaparte's home (made of Malachite pigments) could be one of the causes of his death. (Source).

Four Crystals Every Empowered Woman Needs

Empowered women are strong, tough, and dedicated. They support and help each other. They are not jealous or greedy. They are smart and wise. They are politicians, teachers, entrepreneurs, mothers. They are caring, loving, passionate, and gentle. They know what is best for themselves and those around them. They nurture the things they care most about. They are fearless and that makes them flawless. These are the kind of people that are beaming with light, and therefore many negative energies are drawn to that light. In order to nurture oneself, protect oneself, and remain empowered - these crystals may be vital! 

1. Chrysocolla - 

Chrysocolla is my first recommendation to every empowered woman for several reasons. This stone is the essence of empowerment, expression, and teaching. It gives us the ability to to dig deep into our painful experiences and teach others through sharing what we learned. It allows us to be open and expressive. It also allows us to heal the heart by letting those painful experiences serve as lessons not only to others, but to ourselves; this allows us to reopen our hearts and allow for new experiences. Chrysocolla is also great for relieving premenstrual symptoms and cramps for those days when Mother Nature is totally not cooperating with us! It is great for women expecting a child, women who just gave birth to a child, and women who's grandchildren or great-grandchildren just entered the world because it helps relieve anxieties in order to fulfill their new caregiver role. It builds confidence, insight, and the ability to encourage others. You can find the pendant in the picture here! 

2. Rainbow Moonstone

These are specimens from one of my favorite shops on etsy, TheMagickWizard. Rainbow Moonstone resonates with the Goddess energy, the deep feminine energy that stirs deep within us all. This stone helps women resonate with the spiritual wonders of the moon that help us recognize how powerful we really are. This crystal helps us realize what we are capable of as fearless, empowered women. It teaches women confidence and serenity, to soothe the anger and aggression they may have within. By helping women resonate with the moon, it helps them become less sensitive to the full or new moon. This means they will sleep better, feel better, and express themselves better during these times. 

3. Red Coral 

Red Coral is an obvious pick. It is known as the "Women's Crystal" or "The Blood of Mother Earth" because it helps women become harmonious with the elements. For anyone who feels fatigued, tired all the time, out of their body or out of control, Red Coral would be great to wear or carry because it helps us become grounded to the Earth. It revives passion and drive within us all - some of the key elements that make us empowered women! Red Coral can also be used for menstruation and fertility. It can also help restore tissues in the reproductive organs. You can find this gorgeous bracelet here

4. Rose Quartz

This pendant is from my new Summer Solstice Line on my etsy shop. Rose Quartz is perhaps my favorite stone for the heart & higher heart chakras. It brings such a loving energy - perfect to help heal any woman. This crystal is excellent for helping women see the beauty in everything, especially themselves. One thing that makes an empowered woman empowered is the fact that they do not put other women or themselves down, in fact they nurture themselves and each other to help find beauty. This is a stone of confidence, high self-esteem, and forgiveness. This stone is also a powerful aphrodisiac, allowing women to give and receive love in each and every sense. It helps us get in tune with our sexuality and our sensual side. This allows us to connect with ourselves, our hearts, and the highest feelings of love and passion. Among all these things, it can help women who are have not found their fiery, passionate, strong sides. It helps awaken our love of self and forgiveness of self. It relieves guilt, trauma, worry, jealousy, and all other negative emotions that hold us back.
