Whether you're down in the dumps or suffering from depression, you can use crystals (in
combination with other therapies and medications) to help support you on our journey to brighter days.
Gemstones have been used for ages to ease these feelings and can be quite effective for helping boost low energy, soothe sad moods, and lift depressed thoughts.

How To Use Crystals For Mood Lifting
Wear them, of course! It’s important to remember that it’s typically easier stave off low moods by wearing your crystal jewelry daily. It’s such a simple way to keep the crystals in touch with your body and against your skin all day, which is the most effective way to receive the mellowing effects from your stones. Remember to cleanse your jewelry of negative energy often (we do it nightly when our you're really not feeling great) and charge it with the intent to soothe and uplift. More on that later.
“Is a bracelet okay, or do I have to wear a necklace?”
We get this question a LOT! Here’s the real deal about necklace vs. bracelet/anklet… we
advise you to choose whichever piece of jewelry you are most likely to wear as often as possible. Period. If you won’t wear it, it’s not going to help. That said, for those suffering from low moods often or from depression, our customers have reported better results with more stones. Necklaces tend to be the easiest way to get more stones on your body. But who says you can’t triple-wrap a necklace around your wrist or stack several bracelets together?! Do what works for YOU!

Important note for crystal users rocking stones for mood: Please be sure to clear and
charge your gemstones regularly. When you use crystal jewelry for low moods and depressive feelings, your stones are exposed to high levels of negative energy and they will absorb that energy. To release that and retune your stones back to their purpose will give you the best results when wearing your anxiety relief gemstones. For a breakdown on this and a real talk how-to on clearing and charging, check out our blog HERE!
