Crystals help to focus energy. Therefore, placing crystals directly on the chakras can facilitate healing.
Chakras are, “energy centers within the human body that help to regulate all its processes, from organ functions to the immune system and emotions.”
Today, we are focusing on the heart chakra! The heart chakra is located in the middle of the chest. The organs associated with the heart chakra include the heart and circulatory system, lungs, shoulders and arms, ribs/breasts, diaphragm, and Thymus gland.
The heart chakra deals with love, surrender, forgiveness, balance, acceptance, devotion, and trust.
Below you find some of our favorite crystals associated with the heart chakra to work with. Each crystal has unique special properties and powerful vibrations. As the heart chakra, some of these crystals are green in color while some are pink.

If you don’t have time to place them on the heart chakra, using them as a touchstone is the next best thing! We use different crystals depending on what we feel we need. I carry Rose Quartz and Aventurine with me most days and feel their loving protecting energy always.
