Crystals have been renowned and utilised for their powerful energetic healing properties for centuries. Whether you're a believer or not, my philosophy is always why not? If it helps you, that's fantastic, if not, you're not really losing much right and gaining a beautiful stone in your life.
People use crystals to assist healing and create more health, abundance and happiness in their life. Each crystal is unique in its own way. Naturally, you will notice the different colours, but they also have their own "energy" and individual healing properties. Not every crystal is suited to every person, and if you take the time to tune in, you'll know which crystals are right for you when you hold them.
There are crystals for all sorts of things. Some attract more abundance and prosperity, some attract love, relationships and harmony. Others help you sleep and bring peace to your heart. You can even use crystals for spiritual protection and shielding. Crystals also make very meaningful and special gifts.
These are my top seven crystals every home should have for a happier, healthier and more harmonious life.
1. Clear Quartz
This was one of the first crystals I ever bought. Knowns as the "The Master Healer," this is the go-to crystal for all sorts of things. Use this crystal to help with physical healing such as injuries, inflammation or pain as well as mental or emotional. Clear Quartz resonates with the higher chakras, bringing in divine white light and connection to your higher-self. It also opens your up to higher wisdom and unconditional pure love. You can also use this crystal to help clear issues from your past with guidance from a crystal healer.
Like the Clear Quartz, Amethyst is also very versatile. known as "The All-Purpose Stone," this stone comes in various shades of light violet colour, to lilac to vibrant purple. It resonates with Crown and Third Eye Chakras, helping open the gateway to divine consciousness and higher intuition.
Use Amethyst to help with clarity when there's confusion in the mind, relieve stress and anxiety. If you suffer from insomnia, keep a cluster of Amethyst by your bedside to help with deeper sleep. Amethyst is also knowns as "Traveler’s Stone," providing extra protection when you're out discovering new places.
3. Rose Quartz
Rose quartz is known as the stone of unconditional love and opens the heart to all types of love including the love of self, family, friends, and romantic love. Rose Quartz has a high energy, but its vibe is also calming and soothing. This beautiful crystal helps open the heart to compassion for self and for others and raises self-esteem. It's a wonderful crystal for easing the guilt and helps balance emotions, lower stress and bring peace. The soothing energy of Rose Quartz fosters empathy, reconciliation, and forgiveness of others too.
Lowering stress and tension in the heart, Rose Quartz clears out anger, jealousy, and resentment of others, and allows healing of heart issues and dis-ease associated with holding on to such negative emotions.
Known as a romance stone, Rose Quartz can be used to attract love. Put a piece of Rose Quartz by your bedside table, or in the relationship corner of a room or home to attract new love or to add trust and re-commitment to existing relationships.

This golden stone is great for increased energy and wealth protection. Citrine is known as the "Merchant’s Stone" and is the go-to stone to help manifest more money by removing financial blockages and attracting new opportunities. It's also great for travellers as it helps protect you from losing money. For abundance and prosperity, simply wear it or keep it in your purse or wallet. You can also place pieces of citrine in the four corners of your house.
Trying to lose weight? Citrine can help with that too. As a weight-loss stone, place it on your Solar Plexus Chakra daily for about 20 minutes while you visualise your weight loss goals and how you desire your body to change.
5. Black Obsidian
Help eliminate and protect yourself from negativity with Black Obsidian. This crystal is a powerful cleanser of psychic smog created within your aura and is a great stone for psychic protection. Great for anyone undergoing spiritual or healing work, as it is very grounding and will assist you to release built up resentment, fear and anger.

6. Black Tourmaline
This is one of my personal favourites, and I keep a piece of Black Tourmaline in every room of our home. Black Tourmaline is considered among the top protective stones. It can also help protect you from harmful electromagnetic fields. We keep a piece of Black Tourmaline near electronic devices and gadgets to reduce exposure to EMF frequencies.
The Moonstone is sacred stone is believed to act as a talisman for travellers, a stone of prophecy and an ultimate gift for the lovers. It opens Heart and Sacral chakra in the body to increase the psychic abilities and stimulate inner growth with intuition for its possessor.
The moon has an extraordinary influence on our behaviours, emotions and spiritual growth, and a wondrous effect on our sleep patterns.
Believed to be born from the moon’s ray, Moonstone has gentle calming powers which encourage peaceful slumber. Keep this beauty near your bedside for better sleep, reduced emotional distress, and more confidence.
