How we go about finding a slice of serenity amidst the hustle and bustle of big city living is the million-dollar question of our daily existence. Fortunately, we think we might just be onto something!

Cue healing crystal wands, rose quartz-infused lotions and potions, and coffee table tomes on the energy sources and chakras of the body. Intrigued? Of course you are.

That’s why we made it our mission to round-up the many ways to welcome these healing gemstones into our quotidian routine. Here’s to making it crystal clear…

Enriched rituals 
Talismanic stones of love and balance, rose quartz and jade, have carved out their niche in the beauty sphere. Particularly en vogue at the moment, thanks chiefly to the bountiful benefits that span from collagen production to reducing puffiness, crystal facial rollers are nifty devices that encourage us to practice self-care and slower beauty rituals.

Serene surroundings 
When jumping on the crystal bandwagon, going ham at your nearest holistic shop isn't a requisite (but, by all means do!) – an alternative route to reaping the benefits can be as simple as swapping your everyday essentials for aesthetically pleasing crystal-infused upgrades, which promote clarity and revitalisation. Phone cases, water bottles and candles are great (and low-maintenance) ways to get started.

Books in abundance  
Once you’ve invested in your crystals, it’s worth going the whole nine yards and getting clued up on how best to harness those magical powers. We’re spoilt for choice in the reading department when it comes to comprehensive guides on chakras and crystal rituals, and one resource that certainly deserves a spot on the coffee table is Kristin Petrovich’s Elemental Energy: Crystal and Gemstone Rituals for a Beautiful Life.
