What are Healing Crystals and Gemstones?

There is record of Buddhists, Mesopotamians, Hindus, and Egyptians using crystals for many healing for thousands of years! That includes utilizing gemstones for a healthy pregnancy.

How to Use Crystals for Pregnancy?

If you are new to using crystals for their healing properties you might not even know where to start!

You can find healing gemstones either in raw, cut, or tumbled form. They may simply look like a rock or gem or may be incorporated into jewelry.

In any form your stone will have the same effects. The vibration of each mineral is not altered when we cut or polish it.

You can use your pregnancy crystals in these ways:

  • Wear them as jewelry (necklaces, rings, bracelets etc!)
  • Set them around your room (next to your bed maybe?)
  • Keep them in your purse (Give them a rub or hold if you feel the urge.)


How to Cleanse Your Pregnancy Crystals.

Since crystals work by balancing and redirecting energy, they may absorb some of the negative energy they are cleansing away.

Imagine how many places your stones have been and energies they have encountered on their route to you!

So it is a good idea to cleanse your crystals when you get them and periodically thereafter. (Think monthly. Since moonlight is a great way to cleanse and recharge your crystals, it’s an easy reminder.)

But don’t worry, cleansing your crystals of negative energies they may be harboring and returning them to their original vibrational state is really simple.

How to cleanse your crystals: (source)

  1. Place your gemstones under running water for 1 minute per stone.
  2. Submerge in salt water for 2 days. (Ocean water is great! Or you can make your own by adding 1 tbsp of sea salt to a bowl of water.)
  3. Bury in a bowl of brown rice for 24 hours.
  4. Place your stones outside before sunset and retrieve before 11am the next day. (The indirect sunlight and moonlight will both cleanse and charge your stones.)
  5. Sage smudging can be used by passing your crystal through the smoke for approximately 30-60 seconds per crystal.
  6. Use a large cleansing stone like quartz, selenite, or amethyst geodes and place your smaller stone on them for 24 hours to rid it on negative energies.

**Keep in mind not all crystals can be placed in water. Only hard stones like quartz should be cleansed in this manner. Softer gemstones will degrade in water.
