How to Use Your Black Tourmaline Crystal

Crystals are powerful healers when used with consciousness, clear intention, and positive energy. Here are a few ways to use your crystals:

  • Curate a crystal collection and interact with it in any way that inspires you.
  • Decorate your personal space or office with crystals and stones and appreciate their unique beauty regularly.
  • Wear crystal jewelry.
  • Give crystals as meaningful and personal gifts.
  • Meditate with your crystals.
  • Tuck a crystal into your pocket, wallet, your bra, or under your pillow (some crystals are too intense for bedroom)

  • Program your crystal with a healing mantra and allow the crystal’s energy to amplify the message into your environment.
