Here are our top 5 suggestions to create a healing environment in your home.
#1 Bring in Joy Through CrystalsCrystals, with their amazing healing power, can help energize areas in your home and can even shift the energies in the environment. For instance, rose quartz helps channel love and peace vibrations while black tourmaline can protect the space from any negative energies. Selenite and clear quartz crystals have a calming and uplifting effect whereas a gorgeous amethyst raw stone can be nourishing. Choose crystals that feel good to you intuitively and keep them in spaces in your home where you can easily see them.
#2 Cleanse the Home with Natural Air PurifiersOne of the best investments you can make for your home is an air purifier as it can help filter out fine particles in the air and lessen the negative effects of air pollution. Natural air purifiers like
Himalayan salt lamps, beeswax candles, or sage sticks can help create a lovely spa-like atmosphere in the home while clearing the space of negativity. You can also use aromatherapy essential oils such as eucalyptus, lemon, and tea tree oil to keep the home fragrant and pathogen-free.Have you checked out our gorgeous Himalayan salt lamps and dried white sage?
#3 Use Fragrance to Amp Up the VibrationsBurning incense has long been used to purify homes and keep them fragrant. Incense scents such as frankincense can work as a natural anti-depressant, according to research, because they activate areas in our brain that are associated with anxiety and depression.
#4 Embrace the Healing Self-Care Tools
To create a healing environment, it is best to keep an open heart and mind to what you need intuitively. If you are a visual person, you may like having a healing crystal tree on your mantlepiece or candles strewn strategically to give you that feeling of warmth in your home. Keeping Tibetan singing bowls or a gemstone chime in your living space may help you if you lean towards healing through sound.
Indoor house plants also have a tremendous healing effect on the mind, body, and energy. Researchers have found that exposure to plants can lower blood pressure, improve cardiovascular health, reduce cortisol levels, and balance the sympathetic nervous system activity in the body. You don’t really need a green thumb to make indoor plants thrive. You can choose ferns, succulents, and aloe as they don’t need a lot of attention.Our Hand-carved Singing Bowl from Nepal can amplify the healing vibrations in your home.
