Top 7 Crystals for Beginners

The practice of using crystals has been around for centuries; they can influence the vibrations of your soul and help you become more balanced with yourself and with your life. I have been using crystals for a couple months now and they have already benefited my life tremendously. I try to bring my small crystals with me whenever I go places, they are usually carried in a small pouch that I put in either my purse or backpack. Once I started using them, I could already feel a difference in my attitude and overall mental state throughout the day! Crystals don't just benefit our souls, they can benefit other living things as well! If you place certain crystals onto the soil of a plant, it can amplify the plants energy and help it grow stronger and healthier as well as charge your crystal. I recently started doing this with my plants and they look healthier than ever before, they are even growing tiny buds at the base of the plant! You can also place different crystals in rooms around your house, those crystals can influence the mood of the room. Plus, they look great and can be a real conversation starter. So if you are interested in purchasing crystals to benefit your life then the list below is where I suggest you start your crystal collection!

When having a clear quartz crystal around it energizes and activates your chakras.

I typically place mine in the middle of my other crystals so they all have a chance to be amplified.
