So what do crystals and essential oils have in common? Well, they’re both made from earth’s natural resources and often used for healing purposes — crystals are, naturally-occurring minerals found all over the globe, while essential oils are distilled directly from plants, trees, and flowers.
Using essential oils for healing is wildly popular, as these potent plant essences are touted for their physical and emotional benefits, and used in various forms for different types of ailments (they can be applied topically, diffused in water, and even ingested). Similarly, crystals are revered for their purported healing benefits (and, yes, probably also because they’re pretty to look at), and cultures around the globe have used crystals for healing for thousands of years.
Just like yoga and meditation work on the same line, healing crystals and aromatherapy work together to enhance the energy levels. Paired correctly, they can also enhance or amplify each other’s potent ability or help you reach your goal in a better way.
It is important to know that everything is energy. Everything in our existence is part of an interconnected web of electromagnetic vibrational frequencies. WHEW that's a lot of big words put together but is we really think about it all - People, plants, tables, animals, rocks, are all made up of electromagnetic vibrational frequencies. Isnt that super cool!
Our frequency can change due to environmental and physical factors. For example, trapped emotions stored in our organs, muscles and tissues as pockets of electromagnetic energy also have a negative influence on our well-being. Disharmony and imbalance in the body’s energy field shows up long before it becomes a physical problem. We just have to learn to listen to our body! Ancient cultures believe that the body has a natural tendency towards wellness and if you listen to the body will instinctively know what is good for you. Ancient acupuncturists use to use stones and crystals placed on the points, now they use needles! Today's humans tend to be so ladened down with ill health and toxins that we've lost touch with our abilities to know when we are healthy or ill. We just stay out of touch with our selves and ill, once we get you detoxed this will become easier! Being attracted to a particular crystal or oil can mean it has properties that resonate with your needs.
We can influence our energetic frequency by what we come into contact with, eat, think, listen to, etc. Using tools such as crystals and essential oils can help to raise our vibration. Each have a different vibrational frequency and will interact differently within the body and harmonize with different cells and body systems.

I like to put my oils into roller bottles with crystals in them! I order these through Whimsey and Wellness as I have really enjoyed the quality of product that comes from them! I also really love wearing crystal jewelry - as I am usually a walking diffuser with oils. There are a few designers I work with to create handmade pieces for me with specific intentions. My favorite right now is Tamara Rectenwald as her work is stunning.
