Home & Garden

Natural crystals crystallize in layers and then turn into a more structured shape and size. During this formation the crystal accumulates energy which brings life to the crystals. All natural crystals and gemstones “vibrate” with their own individual frequency, called the piezoelectric effect, meaning can amplify, channel or flow the energy. The energy emanating out of the crystals is clear and integrates with human aura. Feng shui utilises this energy to help energy flow through a space to create a harmonious and calm environment.

Placing crystals in strategic places around your home can have immediate and beneficial effects. You can don’t have to be an expert to achieve good results. If you are unsure which crystals to choose use your intuition and choose a stone that resonates with you. Before you start ensure your crystal has been chosen carefully, cleansed and dedicated to its purpose. Here’s some help to get you started;

  • If your home is unharmonious and unhappy place black or dark crystals around your house to protect it from negative or lower energies, or use white Selenite to invoke angelic protection and guidance.
