Crystals + Oils

Posted by Haylee Crowley on

We often get asked: How do I use crystals with my oils?

If you are just starting to use crystals, it’s similar to when you first started using oils- there is so much to learn about which ones to use when and how to use them. Just like with oils, the more practice the more comfortable you will feel using them! We’ve created this getting started guide to help you start your journey!

Why use crystals with your essential oils at all?

This is the simplest explanation, with much more research that can be done on the subject.

Many people believe in the healing energies of crystals. Humans are made up of energies that are constantly changing based on our moods, behaviors, and even our surroundings. Crystals also give off energy- but because of their crystalline structure, their energy is constant -not changing like ours. Because of this, they can help us rebalance our own energies.

How to use crystals + oils

Step 1: Identify which crystals to use.

Many people believe that just by looking at crystals, or picking them up and holding them, you will be able to tell which ones your body needs because you will be drawn to it. Once you choose one using this method, you can research its benefits by doing a quick google search for the name of the crystal and “healing properties.” Then identify why you were drawn to it by choosing the benefit that best fits your current need.

You can also work the opposite from above, by reading brief descriptions on different crystals and choosing the one that you feel you need based on the description. 

Step 2: Choose an oil that pairs well.

Once you have chosen your crystal, and identified why you need to use the crystal, then you can choose an oil to pair with it. Understanding your desired end result after working with the crystal and oils will give you the best results. Having a reference guide for your essential oils is also helpful at this stage since it will allow you to look up your specific concern and then recommend oils to use.

For example, if you chose Amethyst as your crystal and after researching, feel you need it for confidence, then look to your oils reference guide and choose an oil(s) you would use for confidence.

Whimsy + Wellness offers two ways to use crystals with your oils

Our Crystal Collection showcases the crystals inside of a clear roller bottle. You can mix your blend as usual, adding the essential oils and carrier oil directly into the bottle with the crystals.

Our Gemstone Roller Tops fit standard 10ml roller bottles and replace the usual plastic, glass, or metal ball with a genuine gemstone. You can add the tops to any of your already made roller blends, or combine them with a roller bottle from the crystal collection to create the perfect combo for your needs.

Either method will deliver the energy from the crystals, and it is just personal preference for which method you choose!
