So how do crystals work? Each individual crystal has its own energy field that can positively interact with your own naturally directing, absorbing, amplifying and focusing energy within the body .

Like all things in the world, crystals run on vibrations, each one embodies, a unique energy with a range of positive attributes, depending on the type color and vibration of the stone.

The intention and level of consciousness encourages a person to be receptive to the healing power of stones . When we are more aware of the different vibrations around us, we are able to feel the effects they have on our lives from alleviating stress and anxiety with stones like amethyst which promotes abundance and success with citron. Crystals are quite the powerful tool that can be used in many ways to create positive shifts in our lives 

Aromatherapy: What are the benefits?

Research on the effectiveness of aromatherapy — the therapeutic use of essential oils extracted from plants — is limited. However, some studies have shown that aromatherapy might have health benefits, including relieve from anxiety and depression, improved quality of life particularly in people with chronic conditions.

Essential oils used in aromatherapy are typically extracted from various parts of plants and then distilled. The highly concentrated oils may be inhaled directly or indirectly or applied to the skin through massage, lotions or bath salts. 

Aromatherapy is thought to work by stimulating smell receptors in the nose, which then send messages through the nervous system to the limbic system — the part of the brain that controls emotions. Many essential oils have been shown to be safe when used as directed. However, essential oils used in aromatherapy aren’t regulated by the Food and Drug Administration.

When oils are applied to the skin, side effects may include allergic reactions, skin irritation and sun sensitivity. In addition, further research is needed to determine how essential oils might affect children and how the oils might affect women who are pregnant or breast-feeding, as well as how the oils might interact with medications and other treatments.

If you’re considering aromatherapy, consult your health care provider and a trained aromatherapist about the possible risks and benefits
