Practical Uses for Your Crystals

Smooth stones are perfect at helping you remember one of the most important pieces of coronavirus advice: don’t touch your face!

Simply choose two smaller stones (preferably made of a crystal which will be beneficial to you), and place one in each pocket. When you need to head out to work, school, or even to do the dreaded food shop, keep your hands in your pockets with one crystal in each. Focus on rubbing them to release the energy within, and your hands will be so busy that you forget all about touching and itching your face!

Sharp stones can be great to remember the golden rule: keep six feet away from other people!

Quartz, flint, or other similar crystals can remind others that your space is not their space. Simply use their sharp edges to “ward off” intruders, or take a page from our ancestors book and fashion a six foot spear tipped with your favourite stone to remind them that you don’t want them near you!

Colorful stones are fantastic at reminding you: only go outside if absolutely essential!

Opals, emeralds, quartzes, peacock ore, or even diamonds (if you’re feeling particularly flamboyant), are the perfect reminders that home is where the heart is. If you ever find yourself faltering, simply stare into your stone and watch the colors swirl and mix. Before you know it, you’ll have forgotten why you wanted to go out in the first place!

Cubed Stones can help you enjoy some of the finer things you miss about your old life, particularly everyone’s favourite: the bar!

Cubed stones can be cooled to act as icecubes by simply placing them in the freezer. Soapstone in particular is commonly used in glasses of whisky, to give your favourite drink an extra level of pizzazz. Once you’ve tried a luxurious drink from the comfort of your own home, you’ll wonder why you were ever paying marked up bar prices in the first place! Just make sure to use a non-porous stone to avoid bacteria!

Pumice Stones can help you keep your skin in tip top shape as you remember the most important piece of advice: wash your hands!

These volcanic stones not only look fantastic, but they’re great at exfoliating and removing all the dead flakes of dry skin that antibacterial soap will produce. Finish things off with a nice moisturizer, and your hands will feel better than they ever did!

Even for the “non-believers”, many of these stones can be useful as we adjust to life in a global pandemic. We hope you’ve found a few new and interesting ways to make use of these fantastic looking crystals, and most of all, remember to stay safe!
