As far as we can track in history, people have been fascinated by the beauty of crystals. Kings and queens, princes and princesses have worn them as jewelry. Our ancestors have used stones and crystals for various purposes, for example, in the production of medicine, color, art and religious ceremonies. Today, however, there is some skepticism about crystals and their healing abilities, and many associate crystals with spirituality. But, if you dive into the science of the crystals, one will soon find out that these beautiful creations are pure natural alchemy, made in Mother Earth’s very own chemistry lab, deep inside the earth. They are created of different minerals, metals, electromagnetism, heat and pressure. This is a very long process that takes place through millions of years. Depending on what is present, different structures are formed, thus creating different types of crystals.
Each crystal releases energy and has therefore been used, through the years, to soothe imbalances in the body and mind.
Today, scientists have revealed that the crystal ́s healing properties lie in its content of minerals. Yet, when our ancestors used crystals to soothe various physical and mental issues, they had no scientific evidence of the properties of the crystals. Instead, they intuitively felt what the crystals represented and what they could help with. But don’t take our word for it, try it out on yourself! Hold a crystal and notice how you feel.
Crystals are popular in skin care right now, not only because they are beautiful, but also because their subtle energy helps balance our stressed mind, which manifests itself as symptoms in our skin.
