Crystals have a very soothing and uplifting energy that provides some calm and relaxation to the subtle energy body. Essential oils do the same through the sense of smell and through being absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream which can provide relaxation. It's a great idea to pair together crystals with essential oils to bring the best of both worlds together.
Finding good essentials oils is key, as you'll want to make sure that the oils you're purchasing are all-natural and that there are no fillers or artificial scents included. Knowing all of the good companies out there makes a difference in selecting your essential oils, as you want to get the best quality. Young Living Essential Oils tend to be at the top of the list, as is DoTerra essential oils. As for crystals, you can purchase them online, or you can buy them in a store near you to support local businesses.
Pairing crystals with essential oils can be done in different ways, and you can get creative in how you use them too. One way is to pair the two together by making essential oil blends and then adding small crystals to the bottles before you put the dropper on. That way, the essential oils will be infused with the energy of the crystals. There are even essential oil roller applicators that have a rollerball made from different crystals. That way, each time you apply the essential oils, you're also touching the crystal to your skin.
You can put essential oils in bath salts like Himalayan salts or Epsom salts and then add a crystal to each batch to infuse the salts with their energy. You can make room sprays using essential oils and then adding crystals to the bottom of the spray bottle to infuse the spray with the crystal energy. You can take a bath with essential oils and different crystals (just make sure they don't go down the drain). There are so many different ways to play around with crystals and essential oils, the following are a few ideas you can try.
