Updated: Jul 12, 2022

With Self Care being more important to a lot of us these days, it is no wonder that Crystals have risen in popularity. Much to my delight. I get asked these questions quite frequently

" Where do I Start?"

"What if I use my Crystals wrong?"

so I thought I would write a "how to" kind of guide.

The first thing I tell people is that, Crystals are a personal thing to each of us. Once you know the basics, It is okay to just go with the flow and use your crystals how ever you feel drawn to do so. Lets start with how to Choose the best Crystal for you.


What are you Drawn to?

Firstly you will want to choose the Crystals that are right for you to begin with. My advice would be to start with something you're drawn to the most. A lot of time our bodies know what we need to heal and I do believe we are drawn to the Crystals we need the most.

What is your Zodiac Sign?

Another good way to choose your first Crystals is by your Zodiac signs. Each Sign has been paired with a number of different crystals that would help bring balance and harmony into the users life. Below are just a few that are believed to help. Please look into to this deeper if you want to find a bigger selection. Here we Sell a Your Zodiacs Crystal Keyring.
