Why Use Crystals for Love
"Crystals are basically expressions of chemical energy, rather than having energy.
One can say they ARE energy."
- Aza Derman, metaphysical expert
We all know there are no love potions or magical mantras for love, however, there is energy — energy that can be very powerful...and that is exactly what crystals are, nothing but energy.
The natural vibrations of crystals help run everything from watches to computers, and they are great to bring into your own energy field and personal life to bring about a change.
Each crystal radiates a different vibration or frequency. Depending on their unique vibrations, crystal energy can be harnessed for protection, confidence, luck, wealth, happiness, and yes — for love.
Love comes in many shapes and forms. So, whether you're feeling unworthy looking to promote self-love, single looking to attract a long-term partner, married looking to spice things up, a parent looking to build deeper connections with your children, or a friend looking to heal a rift — crystals can help.
Of course, no crystal will land you your ideal date or guarantee to fix a failing relationship, but crystals will undoubtedly help to open up your heart and balance your own energies and serve as a constant reminder of becoming a better human being to give and receive love.
For example, wearing a rose quartz mala may not attract your secret crush to fall head over heels over you, but its soft, gentle energy can make you more receptive, and positively impact the way you interact with others, which can, in turn, help you receive and attract love.

How Rose Quartz Works
It's soothing and calming energy penetrates the heart chakra promoting empathy, compassion, kindness, and forgiveness which lowers stress built-up in the chakra, clearing out negative emotions such as anger, hate, jealousy, bitterness and more. So, for example, the next time someone bumps into you accidentally, you may act with a lot less irritability than before, if you've been wearing, working with or carrying rose quartz.
Rose quartz can be used to navigate the complexities of different kinds of love, whether it be to increase your self-worth, heal a family rift, rise out of a broken relationship, let go of emotional baggage, mend old wounds or forgive and accept.
How to Use Rose Quartz
One of the best ways to use rose quartz is actually to lay it over your heart. This can help to heal any issues going on in your heart such as feelings of hurt, grief, sadness, and despair. The stone actually helps to bring these issues to the surface — so as you feel, you can heal.
You can also wear rose quartz as a necklace over your heart, or as a bracelet, touching your skin. Rose quartz can also be kept by your bedside table to bring calming vibrations of love and peace. If you're in a romantic relationship, it is also recommended to keep not one but two pieces of rose quartz in the room.
Cleanse your rose quartz by keeping it out in the light of a full moon or by smudging with sage or Palo Santo, and then programming and recharging it with the type of self-nurturing and loving energy you want to attract.

How to Use Crystals for Love
Before you can start to use crystals for love, you need to decide on the type of crystal you want to use, cleanse it, and program it with an intention. Follow the steps below to start using your love crystals:
Pick a love crystal
Depending on what you are trying to achieve, pick a love crystal that resonates with that energy. If you're trying to heal a past relationship you may pick rhodonite, or if you want to muster up self-confidence for an upcoming date, citrine will work.
You'll also have to decide whether you'll be placing the crystal in your bedroom, carrying it on you or wearing it as jewelry. Once you've picked out the type of love crystal you want to use, you'll need to cleanse it.
Prepare your crystal
For your crystals to vibrate with healing energies that they can then impart to you, they first need to cleansed.
You can cleanse your love crystals by burning sage, letting them sit under full moonlight, or burying them in the earth. This will release any built-up negative energies so they can be recharged and ready to use for healing.
