Moonstone is an excellent healing crystal for the lunar ruled crab, it helps to bring deeper insights into intuitive thoughts and assists in understanding the powerful shift of emotions sun sign Cancer often experiences. This healing stone also helps to restore a harmonious balance within you and promotes self-awareness.

Cancers are full of love to give, often wearing their heart on their sleeve which is why rose quartz is ideal. The nurturing energy of Rose Quartz encourages you to have self-love and helps to release pain from past heartache as well as dissipate negative energies.

Cleansing a New Home

For the past couple of weeks I have been so busy moving into my new apartment. I am very happy to finally be settled somewhere new and beautiful. Along the way I have discovered some tips to help me make this home a sacred, peaceful place. When moving into a new home, it is very important to make sure you are filling the home with positive energy that will last. Moving is a big transition, so tension and stress can be high. These are the kinds of energies you want away from your new space. Below are some steps that are very important to take in creating your new sacred, loving environment. 

1. Detach 

One of the most important steps to moving is letting go of the things you no longer need. This step was so hard for me, but I had excellent help. A lot of things hold memories, but no purpose. Sometimes it is best to let those memories go. This allows you to detach, de-clutter, and move on. There's no better way to start fresh in a new place. Detachment is good for the soul because it reminds us that what we think we need is really all just an illusion. Leaving material items behind also helps ego get left behind. Certain attached, addicted, or dependent parts of us will be thrown away, too. 

2. Smudging

Cedar

Cedar

Smudging is an ancient Shamanic and Native tradition used to attract or repel the good or bad. You can find smudge sticks at metaphysical shops, farmers markets, natural food stores, etc. Sage is usually what is recommended because it repels any negative energy, including spirits or thoughts. When moving into a new place, you may or may not know what energies are tied into the house already. Moving can also be very stressful so negativity may be absorbed upon your arrival. To perform a smudging ritual, light the end of the smudge stick and hold over an abalone dish (if you don't have one, a regular bowl will work fine.) Make sure there are windows open. Start at the beginning of the house and work your way around. Each room you should be affirming peace, protection, positivity, and whatever else you would like to attract in your new home. When finished, end where you started and put out the smudge stick. If the light goes out on its own, you will need to cleanse that room for a longer period of time. There are many other smudges you can use instead of or in addition to sage. For example, I used a Cedar Smudge the day after the sage. Cedar is used traditionally when moving into a new house because it attracts good energy for new beginnings. You can also use lavendar, sweetgrass, rosemary, etc for relaxation, hope, or whatever you are trying to manifest.

3. Grids

I know I've previously written about gridding a house with Selenite. This is such an important step to protecting a home. Selenite cleanses an area, just as sage does. The idea of the grid is to place Selenite in the four main corners of your home. This will ward off negative energy and keep the home at peace. Selenite calls upon the angels to protect the home. Black Tourmaline is another crystal that can be used in a grid. It works as a shield of any harm or negative energy. Whatever it is you are trying to manifest, you can use the corresponding crystal to grid your home with. If you are trying to bring love into the home, place Rose Quartz in the four main corners. If you are trying to manifest happiness and abundance, Citrine is best to use. By adding a crystal to each corner of the home, you are creating a force field of energy that will help attract the energy you desire.

4. Life 

Last but not least, adding a bit of life to a home is a great way to create a positive environment. Bringing the earth inside of your home will help promote grounding and peace. Not only are plants beneficial to the spirit, but they can help freshen the air, make it easier to breathe, reduce stress, and induce motivation. Fill your empty spaces up with plants and you will see the affects of bringing life inside. 

Crystals for Skincare: How Healing Crystals Can Get You Perfect Skin

The other day, I accidentally burned my hand on the stove. Though it was nothing major, the pain was going to be getting in the way of my wire working. I've heard of people using crystals to heal burns so I thought I'd give it a shot. I took a Rose Quartz crystal and held it directly on the burn for an hour. The coolness of the tumbled crystal felt good against the burn and when I woke up the next morning, my burn and blistering was completely gone - as if it never even happened! This was the first time I've tried crystal healing for skincare, so I decided to look a little further into it. Here are some tips and products to use when treating skin ailments with crystals. Recipes for some amazing skincare products are at the bottom of the article! 

Healing Sunburns With Crystals

For more painful or severe sunburns, place Sodalite, Blue Chalcedony, or Onyx crystals in a bath of cool temperature. Sodalite, Blue Chalcedony, and Onyx are both great crystals for sunburns and inflammation. You will find being completely immersed in the water infused with this crystal's energy is very soothing. Below are some cheap and natural remedies that you can make in your own kitchen for helping to heal your sunburn. 

 

Sunburn Settling Spritzer, Natural Remedy

  • Mix water with Blue Chalcedony tumbled stone for 24 hours. 
  • Put in spray bottle with lavender or almond essential oil. 
  • Spritz on your burn every 3-5 hours to help the burn go down. 

 

Sunburn Soother, Natural Remedy (My Favorite!)

You will need: 

  • 1/4 Coconut oil
  • 5 drops of Lavender Essential oil
  • 1 TBSP Aloe
  • 1/2 TSP Tumeric
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 1 Tumbled Sodalite

Instructions:

  • Turn the water into a gem elixir by soaking the sodalite in it overnight. (Bonus: drinking this water will also help with migraines!)

Healing Crystals for Healing Burns

Rose Quartz, as described above, is a good crystal for burns. Chrysoprase and Sodalite can also be used to heal burns. Simply hold the crystal on or near the burn. If you happen to have a smaller piece of the crystal you are using, it would be very beneficial to tape or bandage the crystal on a more severe burn for a couple days. Whenever I have a burn now, I wear a rose quartz pendant throughout the day so I have the energy handy when I need to "re-apply"

Healing Acne With Crystals

Acne indicates toxicity. Toxicity is not limited to chemicals that are ingested or that make contact with the skin. Toxicities of the emotional body include stress, depression, etc. Toxicities of the physical body include allergies, digestive problems, and diet. These are all examples of acne inducers. There are certain crystals that eliminate toxicity, ease hormonal balancing, de-stress, and more. The over the counter products for things such as acne and oily skin have TONS of chemicals that may not be helping your skin. Amethyst is a great crystal for detoxifying, de-stressing, and balancing aspects of the mind, body, and spirit. There are a few ways to use amethyst for healing acne. One way is to place the crystal directly on the affected area. Another way is to create an elixir. An elixir is made by soaking a crystal in water for 24 hours. Many people will drink elixirs made with different crystals. You can drink an Amethyst elixir to help with skin or use the elixir to wash your face with. Rinsing the skin with the Amethyst elixir will allow the energy to sink right into your pores. It will be very helpful in shrinking your pores. Wearing this stone can also help infuse you with that stone's energy. 

If you're willing to take your skincare routine further for shrinking pores, reducing redness or blotchiness, moisturizing your dry skin, or healing your oily skin, check out the recipe below! It is a blast to make, especially with friends and lets you incorporate earth into your skin care routine.
