If you're anything like us, you probably have a deep appreciation for all things crystals, but did you know they can make an amazing addition to your bathroom self-care rituals?
You can shower with them, pop them in your bathtub, or simply have them around your space to soak up the magical energy they radiate.
Unfortunately, not all crystals are safe for use in the bathroom.
Selenite, Fluorite, Labradorite, Malachite and Pyrite for example are all either:
- water soluble and may break in water
- low in hardness and may be damaged by salt water
- or, may leach out potentially dangerous minerals if damaged
It's best to avoid using those particular crystals in the bathroom just in case something happened by accident.
To find out if a particular crystal or stone is safe to use around/in water, google the Moh's Hardness Scale of that particular piece. If it's less than 6, avoid getting it wet.
You can also dig deeper and refer to a crystal toxicity table and a crystal solubility table for a scientific answer.
But don't worry, there are plenty of bathroom-safe crystals that you can use to enhance your sacred bathroom rituals.
Here are some of our favourites:
Rose Quartz is a great choice for self-love, compassion, and healing.
Smokey Quartz is great for grounding, releasing, protection and stabilising energy.
Citrine is used for boosting confidence, the sacral chakra, creativity, and abundance.
Moonstone helps to balance out the mood, is helpful with period pain and tunes us into the earth's cycles, intuition and magic.
Amethyst is perfect for meditation, psychic work, divination, the third eye chakra and protection.
Not only are crystals beautiful and offer so much in terms of home decor, but they can also be powerful spiritual tools and allies.
Why not see what you have at home already in your collection and find something suitable to live in your bathroom for a while?
If you don't have any crystals - well you're in luck because it's never been easier to find them. They're available in many bricks and mortar stores and of course, online. We even stock a small range of crystals here at Soap Cult.
Don't be afraid to add some crystals to your bathroom rituals to boost magical energy.
Just be sure to select the right ones *wink*
