How to Use Crystals
|Holding||While meditating, contemplating, or reflecting on a situation. You may ask the crystal for intuitive answers.||Any crystal|
|On Body||Keep in your pocket, purse or small bag.||Tumbled or small stones|
|Jewelry||There is some controversy about whether or not the setting needs to be open in the back so the skin is exposed to the stone. Since stones work energetically some people feel that being in your aura is sufficient.||Any crystal|
|In Environment||On windowsills (not those crystals that fade in the sun like amethyst).
On furniture in areas where you spend a great deal of time.
In plants. In your car.
|On Computer||Keep on keyboard, all around the computer and your working environment.||Protective (Black tourmaline)
Mentally or creatively stimulating (Citrine, lapis, Opal)
|Gem Elixir||Gem Elixers may be purchased or made yourself. They are made by potentizing holy water with the energy of the crystals. (See the book Gem Elixers and Vibrational Healing to make them yourself).||All except those sensitive to water (see Meoldy's book)|

|As Massage Tools||Many stones are cut and polished specifically to be massage tools, however you can use any stone or formation that works. In this case essential oils and flower essences can be applied to the crystal to increase the healing potential||Quartz
|As a Essential Oil Diffuser or Magnifier||Since crystals magnify energy and since essential oils have a fairly high frequency, crystals make great aromatherapy diffusers! Quartz clusters tend to be best. The fragrance will be stronger and last longer.||Quartz
Any crystal not sensitive to water, those forming clusters are best.
