Crystal remedies can come in many forms!

They use the innate power of the stones to work on many different levels for many types of ailments. These remedies have been handed down through families and tribes, teachers and shaman as are the traditions and recipes of any culture. Below are some of the various types of remedies.
Carry Them With You – Put your crystals in a pouches and carry them with you. This is one of the most interesting and oldest remedies. Usually a prescription of 2 – 4 crystals, these complementary stones are carried or worn on the person or placed in a certain area. This prescription can be used for anything from healing to psychic awareness, healing an emotional wound as in discouragement or sorrow, or bringing about such aspects as love, money, protection, guidance, spiritual attunement, strength or even addiction. Carry the stone in your pocket or pocketbook.
Crystal Concoctions or Elixirs are also the recipes of the past. It is recommended to place clean stones or crystals into clean, clear distilled water and place it in the morning sun through the day and into the night of a full moon for 24 hours. This allows the (male) sun energy and (female) moon energy to reflect through the water and into the crystals therefore charging the water with this vibrational force of light and color.
Crystal Hydrotherapy is the use of water in any form, in the treatment of dis-ease. Hydrotherapy was used by the ancient Greek physicians. Hydrotherapy and crystals have a number of uses. Crystals salts with warm water will relax spasm; therefore, hydrotherapy has been useful in treating such conditions as muscular strains and sprains, muscular fatigue, and backache. If your crystal can tolerate water, then bathing with the crystal energy is a great way to work with your stone.
Crystal Massage uses your stone as a massage tool. Use some essential oil, massage oil or lotion on your stone and massage the areas which feel blocked or stuck. You will find this a great remedy.
Meditate with your crystal, by placing your crystal in your dominant hand or on the floor in front of you. Close your eyes and concentrate on the color of your stone. Slowly try to connect with the crystal’s energy. Remember: “Energy follows thought”. The imagery of visualization is very powerful! As you breath, you may inhale and exhale through the Chakra points. This will charge the Chakra and surrounding organs with vital energy. You may utilize the vibrational power of sound or music during your session. The stones will enhance a positive, reconnecting flow of energy, which will allow you to bring up, recognize and clear emotional blocks.

Crystal Gridding is the “laying of the stones” around the body in order to work with the Aura and Auric fields. There are many ways to grid with crystals based on their color and properties.
