Chakra Healing Stones

All healing stones and crystals are believed to possess their own meanings and vibrational energy. The key is to learn how to use healing chakra stones and pair the right stone with the affected chakra.

Chakra stones are often used in jewellery. Cleansed and charged healing stones are most effective when they are in close proximity to the affected chakra. Those who embrace this Eastern philosophy will understand how blockages manifest themselves both in the physical and non-physical.

Why not treat yourself or a loved one to a gemstone that not only looks beautiful, but has the additional benefit of addressing imbalances and promotes physical and mental wellbeing.
