Our homes are deeply personal spaces. They should be our sanctuary, our safe haven. They reflect our personality and our interests, and they reflect our energy and vibes. When there’s tension between people in the home, the home energy feels tense. When you’re sad or grieving, the home holds the space of that darkness. And when your mind is cluttered with chaotic thoughts, disarray will often manifest within the home as well. It is so important to not only cleanse the energy of the home regularly, but also fill it back up with love and light. The more you transform the home into a space of radiant positivity, the more you will inspire your spirit to vibrate at the same level. Crystals for the home help you to set the tone for your space and spirit.

Explore the greater possibilities of these healing tools with this quick guide to crystals for the home! We’re taking you room-by-room to help you remove the guesswork from choosing crystals for the home.
An Insider Guide to Crystals for the Home
A Crystal for the Front Door
You may have an alarm system, but that’s not going to help when bad energy is trying to enter your space. Always have a piece of Black Tourmaline by the front door. Black Tourmaline is a highly cleansing, but also protective stone. It helps to purify you of any energy you don’t want to bring home with you after a long day, and casts an energy shield over your home to keep others from sending their negative energy your way. You can also hide the Black Tourmaline in the soil of a potted plant by the front door. Not only will this protect your protection stone, the soil will also keep your crystal charged!
Crystals for the Living Room
Stress relieving Amethyst is ideal for generating a relaxing, rejuvenating space. It’s one of those crystals for the home that you can’t go wrong placing in any room of the house! To get that amethyst energy emitting in every direction of your living room, try an amethyst cluster. Covered in amethyst points, these unique stones will send calm, soothing energy throughout your entire space. Or, place a Fluorite crystal on your coffee table to bring balance and harmony to the space. Fluorite helps you find balance within the spirit, and sort through any stress or worries clogging your mind. Having it in the living room will cultivate an air of grounded positivity that is perfect for harmonious get-together and a relaxing night-in. Selenite acts as an air purifier, clearing negativity and emitting positive energy. Amethyst has a very protective energy that also continuously brings you light and abundance.
Crystals for the Bedroom
What better crystal to have in the bedroom than one that invokes feelings of peace and unconditional love? Rose Quartz to the rescue! This stone connects with the heart chakra to open the soul up to vulnerabilities, and promote love in relationships. It is the quintessential stone for rediscovering self-love, as it brings you to realise that you deserve the same compassion and understanding that you give to others. Those with families can benefit from rose quartz especially. With a soft energy, rose quartz soothes the remaining tensions from the day, and keeps you from going to sleep angry as it influences empathy, forgiveness, and lowered stress. Having a natural energy cleanser like Selenite under the bed or pillow is a must-have for restful sleep and sweet dreams. This crystal of “liquid light” maintains an energetically light and charged environment. If you want to create an ambience full of cleansed, uplifting vibes, use a Selenite Lamp. The soft luminescence that Selenite Lamps put out will offer the perfect mood lighting for when you just want to rest and recharge your spirit with a good book in bed. For those in partnerships, place a pair of Rose Quartz and Amethyst together on your nightstand. This energy combo balances that yin and yang energy and deepens the connectedness of your relationship. As the rose quartz promotes understanding and loving vibes, the amethyst enhances intuition and relaxation.
Crystals for the Bathroom
The bathroom is a place of cleansing, a place where you are naked with no pretences. No clothes, no make up, with a mirror you must face. It is the place where you are at your most basic self. Most stones can go into the bathroom but, as the primary cleansing stone, Clear Quartz is a perfect asset to this space. By connecting with Clear Quartz, you can purify your spirit at the same time as you cleanse your body. Have it by the shower or bath to enhance the energy of cleansing. Clear Quartz is an amplifier, and works to magnify the energy of other stones in its vicinity. Put the seven Chakra stones around the Clear Quartz and come out of this space feeling squeaky clean from head to toe - and crown chakra to root chakra - in perfect balance and harmony.
Crystals for the Kitchen
There’s just something special about a meal made with nurturing love. Give everything you cook the same kick by adding the secret ingredient of loving energy to your kitchen.
A dynamic crystal, Carnelian emits an energy as bright as its fiery orange surface. This stone works for the kitchen because it delivers confidence, boosts creativity, stimulates motivation and increases stamina. Cooking is hard work. Carnelian will aid in lessening the physical toll that cooking takes on the body, and inspire you to take bold risks in those recipes. As a stone of creativity and passion, a Carnelian by your cook books will help spice up your recipes!
We like to put Citrine on the window sills to fill our spirit and space up with joy as we prepare food. The best tasting food is prepared with a positive spirit, so ensure that kitchen maintains a happy ambiance with Citrine. When the sun hits this happy stone, it will send sparkles and rainbows into your kitchen. Let motivation and joy that Citrine inspires enhance every meal!
On top of your table, place a Clear Quartz point which keeps the energy pure and clean. When sunlight hits the clear quartz, it streams rainbows into the space and transforms it into a positive place for family meals. We also like to add a piece of Sodalite underneath the table to fuel harmonious conversations at dinner.
Crystals for the Office
Citrine is an important stone for the work desk or home office because it represents success, wealth, and money. No matter what your business is, even if you run a charity, you are in it to succeed. Citrine can help you achieve that with its golden ray. Bring in the energy of a Pyrite crystal to promote a wealth of ideas, opportunities and confidence in the office. Set the Pyrite on top of your business card to manifest abundance. The courage, motivation and overall sense of abundance you feel when connected with Pyrite’s energy will drive you to take those necessary risks or capitalise on opportunities for growth.
Crystals for the Garden
This combination of crystals for the garden works as well for green thumbed savants as for their less cultivation-capable friends. Boost your confidence and the energy of your garden with these crystals for the home, and give gardening another try. Green Aventurine guides earthly energy up into the roots to pulse vitality throughout your plants. Bury it into the soil of your garden or potted plant with clear quartz for energy amplification. Quartz Crystal can also aid you in programming your garden with the intentions you want to set. Set those intentions with a quick meditation in the garden. Focus on what you want for your plants, and how you want to treat them. If watering is something you always forget, set an intention to be more mindful and attentive to your garden, and then bury the quartz into the earth. You can also sprinkle crystal chips on the top soil of the pots, they are great decorations that add vibrant colours to your garden.
