Good Vibes: How to Decorate Your Room with Dazzling Crystals
Ways to Display Crystals at Home
Crystals…they’re so hot right now. And the're not just for new agey mystics anymore.
It seems that the pandemic fueled interest in cleansing your home of bad vibes and maintaining your own positive energy.
Who would have thought?
Problem is, a lot of people aren’t really sure where to start when it comes to incorporating crystals into their home decor. So we created this handy dandy guide for those looking for decorating with crystals inspiration.
And if you’re looking for information on what different crystals mean – what are all of the crystals' properties and powers – we’ve got you covered.
How do you set up a crystal room?
The great thing about crystals being a little hippy-dippy is that there’s no wrong way to incorporate crystals into your room.
Experts say to choose crystals with your heart, not your head. If a crystal attracts you, go for it.
Depending on the size of the crystal, you can incorporate it into your decor in a variety of ways.
Larger crystals make excellent bookends and give any bookshelf a pop of color. Crystals make beautiful planters for succulents or air plants.
For smaller crystals, why not use them as drawer knobs or bottle stoppers? Little crystals also make beautiful wall hangings and decorative mobiles.
You can place tiny crystals under your pillow – or take a moon bath with your favorite crystals to manifest your dreams. Make sure your crystals are safe to submerge in water first. Some crystals – like selenite – will dissolve underwater.
You can also simply place your crystals on a tray on your coffee table for some visual interest. A selenite tray is ideal – selenite crystal is always charged – and charges other crystals it comes in contact with.
How to charge crystals
To optimize the energy in your crystals, experts recommend charging them regularly. Like you, crystals get drained of their energy – or occasionally need a cleanse from bad vibes.
Charging your crystals is simple – unless your crystal is water-soluble, like selenite. Run them under cool water and dry them with a cloth – then let your crystals charge overnight in the moonlight. A full moon is best.
It’s ideal to leave your crystals to charge outdoors – but if you don’t have an outdoor space, leave them at the window that receives the most moonlight.
You can also purchase a selenite charging tray to keep your crystals charged – or immerse your crystals in a Himalayan salt bath.
