Indeed, the use of healing crystals as a form of self-care and healing tool has gone through the roof over the last few years. The #healingcrystal has more than 3 million photos and YouTube videos about them are rising.
Even though healing crystals have been used over centuries by our ancestors as a healing tool and had gone forgotten for a few decades, Millenials and Gen Z are getting more and more interested in holistic health and alternative practice, hence the rise of things that used to be seen as woo woo or new age-y.
Crystals are powerful if you know how to use them — they can neutralize negative energy and create a nurtured environment. However, crystals aren’t all the same and each type of crystal has its own properties and emits different energies.
