Use the guide inside our online store to decide which crystals might be beneficial to you and then when choosing the individual stone just follow your intuition; the stone that you are drawn to is the one to choose. CLEANSING . . . It is advisable cleanse the stone by putting into running water for a few minutes after you have brought it and after using for healing. This is said to wash away negative energy that the stone picks up. If however the crystal looks very delicate it is wise to check when buying the stone that the mineral is robust enough to be washed. USING YOUR CRYSTAL . . . Simply get to know your stone at first. Relax whilst holding it and go to sleep with it under your pillow. You can as your knowledge progresses place it on a chakra. Details of these can be found in the many books that we sell on the subject. RECHARGING . . . After cleansing you stone it needs charging for maximum benefit; simply place in sunlight in the daytime when not in use or the moonlight at nighttime. MEDICAL ADVICE . . . Always consult a doctor if you have symptoms that worry you as all alternative therapies are meant to run alongside conventional treatment and not to replace them.
