Rose Quartz in Your Routine

There are many ways you can incorporate Rose Quartz in your routine. Here are just a few.

  2. Wear rose quartz jewelry. When worn, healing crystal jewelry can raise our vibration and open up the loving energy that already exists within us.
  3. Add it to your gratitude practice. Hold it against your heart and say an affirmation (I am open to infinite love) or keep it close by during meditation. Reiki healer, Kelsey Patel, finds it’s especially potent if you add some visualization to your meditation. Patel says, “You can work with rose quartz by [picturing] a pink light of love as you inhale and move it throughout your entire body.”
  4. Use rose quartz in Feng Shui. Leave it on your bedside table to promote love in existing relationships or create your own rose quartz spritz and use it throughout your home or on your linens. Simple place rose quartz pieces in a glass of pure spring or purified filtered water for 24 hours. The water will absorb the energetic qualities of the rose quartz that can then be sprayed in the air and on objects and furniture.
