Healing crystals have a multitude of purposes and can help with physical, mental and spiritual health.
But each crystal will have its own set of properties and uses – and will work with different physical areas of the body and energy fields within the body.
Red healing stones tend to resonate best with the root chakra.
The root chakra, which is sometimes also known as the base chakra, connects us to Mother Earth and keeps us grounded allowing us to feel strong and stable. It is also the source of our sexuality and desire, as well as our other basic human needs.
While red healing stones can work to open, cleanse, and balance the root chakra, they can also be used for other areas of the body, and for many other purposes.
Let’s explore them:
I’m starting this list with one of my favourite red healing stones – Jasper.
Jasper is my go-to stone for any matters related to the root chakra. It resonates perfectly with the energy field and helps support grounding.
It helps to balance emotions and energies, to bring a sense of peace and tranquillity.
This crystal is also excellent to rely on when times are tough. If you need the strength and the courage to face a certain situation, Jasper can help you. It will help to protect and keep you safe while absorbing energy which is negative.
Jasper is perfect for absorbing pollution too – both environmental and electromagnetic. And it can help with reinvigorating both physcial and sexual energy.
Red Calcite is a powerful healer, despite it being fairly inexpensive, and so ready available.
It can provide support with various aches and pains throughout the body including: constipation, joint pains, limb pains and issues with the hips and the feet.
Red Calcite is a great stone for women as it aids with both the reproductive system and during pregnancy and childbirth.
Just like Red Jasper, Red Calcite also offers the user courage and strength. It can also be used to heighten your spiritual awareness and connections.
As well as working with the root chakra to help ground you or set boundaries, you can also use Red Calcite for the heart chakra to help to improve emotional awareness and intelligence.
Top tip: If your child is a little hyperactive, Red Calcite can help to instil some calm.
Ruby has to be one of the first read healing gemstones that springs to mind – and it’s easy to see why as this crystal is stunning.
Not only is Ruby beautiful, but it is also capable of providing strong healing.
Just like Red Calcite, Ruby also works really well with the heart chakra. It can boost self-confidence and help to balance and heal emotions.
