Discover our list of top 10 crystals for women
Sodalite is a fantastic crystal for women - it's a peaceful crystal that helps you to relax and gather your thoughts. It’s the calm in the midst of chaos. Sodalite also enhances self-esteem and encourages you to trust your intuition and be true to yourself.
Chakra: Throat and third eye
How to use: Hold a Sodalite tumble in each hand whilst meditating. This helps you to receive Sodalite’s soothing energy whilst creating a sense of calm around you.
How annoying is it when you’re trying to fall asleep and your brain seems to have misplaced the memo that it’s night time! Howlite is our go-to crystal to switch the brain off and relieve insomnia. Howlite also encourages patience and helps you to express your feelings easily.
How to use: Place Howlite inside your pillowcase each night. In addition, prepare a Howlite elixir to drink an hour before you go to bed. It is best to prepare the elixir using the indirect method (eg where the crystals do not come into contact with the water). Our blog Creating Crystal Elixir Using the Indirect Method explains this in greater detail.
Sunstone is another crystal that women need in their kit - it's a crystal of optimism, joy and patience … Think of it as a little ray of sunshine! Sunstone is also a crystal for abundance, self-empowerment and transformation.
Zodiac: Leo and Libra
Chakra: Sacral and solar plexus
How to use: Carry Sunstone tumbles in your pockets and reach for them throughout the day.
4. Rose Quartz
When you think of crystals for women, Rose Quartz is probably the first crystal that comes to mind! Rose Quartz is a crystal of unconditional love for family and friends, as well as ourselves. Rose Quartz teaches us to be compassionate towards ourselves and to believe in our abilities. Rose Quartz also encourages us to put ourselves first (even if it’s only occasionally!).
Zodiac: Taurus and Libra
How to use: Wear Rose Quartz close to the heart chakra, either as a pendant or in a bra. You can also add Rose Quartz crystals to a warm relaxing bath - check out our crystal bath salt recipe for inspiration!
Amazonite is a crystal that encourages personal growth and being true to yourself. It is also a soothing crystal that helps to calm emotions and ease tensions. If you are faced with a difficult conversation, Amazonite will help you remain calm and collected, plus communicate clearly.
Chakra: Heart and throat
How to use: Balance the heart chakra by placing Amazonite in the centre of the chest (on the breastbone), balance the throat chakra by placing Amazonite on the throat. When placing crystals on the throat chakra, make sure the crystal is not too heavy as it will be very uncomfortable. If you need support whilst you’re out and about, place an Amazonite tumble in your bra or wear an Amazonite pendant.
Carnelian is a crystal for courage, enabling you to be independent and confident. If you need a boost to your energy levels or creative side, Carnelian is the crystal to grab. It is also said that Carnelian can help protect you from accidents whilst driving.
Chakra: Sacral and solar plexus
How to use: Place Carnelian in your workspace to enhance your creativity. Oh, and if you would like to use crystals to keep you safe whilst travelling, pop a Carnelian tumble in your car!
If I could only choose one crystal that every woman should have, that crystal would be Chrysocolla. Chrysocolla is a crystal for starting fresh, attracting peace and tranquility, plus manifesting change. This crystal is also a powerful cleanser, relieves PMS and cramps, plus supports the immune system after an illness. Chrysocolla balances both the throat and heart chakras, two chakras that I have found are often out of whack for women.
Chakra: Heart and throat
How to use: Place on your lower abdomen to relieve PMS and cramps.
8. Black Tourmaline
Black Tourmaline is a very powerful and protective crystal … It is one of the best crystals for keeping you grounded and connected to the earth. Black Tourmaline removes negative energy from your environment, as well as your own negative thoughts and self-judgement. This is an excellent crystal to place near computers and telephones to dissolve electromagnetic energy.
Zodiac: Libra and Scorpio
How to use: Place Black Tourmaline beneath your feet for grounding. Keep Black Tourmaline next to your computer to protect you from EMFs (electromagnetic fields).
Moonstone is a very calming crystal for women - it helps us emotionally and also assists with balancing hormones, PMS, fertility, pregnancy and childbirth. It has a very nurturing energy and is thought to amplify intuition. Moonstone is also known as the ‘Traveller’s Stone’ and is said to keep you from harm when travelling at night.
How to use: Try wearing a Moonstone pendant for support with hormones, PMS and fertility.
Fluorite is known as a crystal for making decisions, thinking clearly and seeing the bigger picture. Fluorite is also said to improve concentration and focus. Physically, Fluorite can help relieve sinusitis, colds and flu.
Chakra: Third eye (purple Fluorite) and heart (green Fluorite)
How women can use crystals for healing
Crystal healing isn't an instant fix ... We recommend that you handle your crystals regularly as this helps you to connect with them. You may also need to work with your crystals for at least 30 days - or the full cycle of the moon. If you have several crystals that you wish to work with, store them in a crystal pouch so it is easy for you to take them wherever you go.
