Healing Plants with Crystals

succulent in geometric planter with amethyst tumbled stonesIt's definitely disheartening to wake up to a fresh day, expecting your precious plants to be thriving only to look over and find them wilting with exhaustion. 

Has your plant lost the will to live?

If you've tried basic plant care balancing water, soil, and sunshine and are ready for a crystal healing remedy, you've come to the right place. 

Can you put crystals in plants?

You sure can! Just like the crystals affect your own vibrations, they can be beneficial to your plants.

But first, remember to clean, charge, and program your crystals for your intention. Do you want the plants to grow? Do you want them to multiply? Do you want them to clean the air? Whatever it is, program your intention before adding the crystals to your plants. 

Keep in mind that the type of crystal you place with your plants may not retain its pristine shine after a while. Dirt and water will stain and break the crystal down over time. This is fine for the plant, but if you want to reuse the crystal for other purposes, be mindful of which stones you choose to place with your potted plants. 

Crystals for Indoor Potted Plants

When indoor plants become ill, timing is critical. The sooner you get help for your plant, the better. To treat your indoor plants with crystal healing energies, you will need a small selection of crystals including Clear Quartz and Aventurine.

Even if you don't know what is causing your plant's health to deteriorate, crystals can help regain balance and jumpstart the healing process. Place the healing stones accordingly:

  • Gently push the chosen crystal into the soil where it can go to work immediately for the plant.

  • Don't break up the crystal to plant all around the stem of the plant. You simply need to place one crystal gently under the soil.

  • Repotting the plant can sometimes be all it needs to perk up again. Many times, the plant will grow out of its current pot and will die if it's not given more space to expand and grow. If you are repotting the plant, you will want to place a crystal in the bottom of the plant's new home. Then fill with soil and the plant.

  • Crystals can give off an energy that plants can absorb which in turn will only help it to grow.

    Crystals for Fresh Cut Flowers

    When you receive a bouquet of flowers, the beautiful roses or orchids live only a short time without connection to their roots. You can promote a longer life for fresh cut flowers by using crystal healing energy. Here's how:

    • Place your crystals into a container and arrange them before adding the water. The crystals will promote their energy onto the cut flower. Plus, you will enjoy the beautiful colors that balance the flowers.

    • Use Clear Quartz crystals in the vase of your fresh cut flowers. Run the Clear Quartz under water to remove any substance still on the crystal from the last time you used it. Place it inside the vase, fill with water, and position the fresh cut flowers into the vase.

    Crystals to Promote Plant Health

    Tomato Plants – If you have broken pieces of Clear Quartz or Rose Quartz, place them underneath the tomato plants in the garden. Placing any type of Quartz in the soil around them will ground the plant and create a positive growing environment. You benefit from these fruits and vegetables that are grown with the help of these crystals.

    Fertility and Health – When you want to improve the overall health of the plant and promote fertility of it, then you will want to use Agate. Place the crystal inside the soil, preferably underneath the plant.

    Encourage Growth – Your plants will hopefully provide you with the essential nutrients needed for the body. You want to get the most out of your growing season and in order to do that, you need Moss Agate. This is a frequently chosen crystal for gardeners. Long ago, Moss Agate would be worn on the body while planting crops to ensure that the crops would turn out good. This crystal will encourage the plant to grow and thrive freely.

    Healing – If your plant is struggling or if it becomes attacked by pests, you can place Tourmaline in the soil surrounding the plant to promote healing, general growth, and development.

    Sheila's Personal Experience with Crystals & Plants

    I was never interested in plants until I reached my early 20's and started on my journeys towards adulthood. These early years were hard on my plants because I just didn't know what I was doing. Like most beginners, I assumed a little water and a little light here and there would do the trick. It was a long struggle to turn my brown thumb green. 

    Today, my house is full of potted plants. For the most part, they live a healthy life. I actually took the time to prioritize health and looked up proper plant care for each of my plants. 

    Once I had this under control, I started to add crystals into the pots. Not only does this enhance the aesthetic value of the potted plants, but it helps the plants grow in a positive manner. You can now say I have both a green and a crystal healing thumb. 

    Lisa's Personal Experience with Crystals & Plants

    I never had much of a green thumb. I eventually started fostering some simple plants like lucky bamboo and cacti. Fortunately, my husband enjoys gardening and is now the keeper of our patio gardens.

    In the back patio, he has a small aquaponics garden hooked up to a tiny fish tank. In the pots are mainly flowers and various plants. In the front entrance is my garden full of succulents. 

    Lucky for me, I get to enjoy the power of plants with minimal effort. My contribution is placing raw clusters around the greenery. I have AmethystQuartz, Fluorite, and other minerals to help them flourish. When a crystal breaks or cracks, I will sometimes bury it in one of the potted plants.

    Why do plants need minerals?

    All plants need different minerals to survive. The nutrients in the minerals help your plants thrive. Besides carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen, your plant gets the rest of its nutrients from stones. 

    Besides metaphysically energizing your plants, crystals are physically providing your plants with essential minerals. 

    Different stones provide different minerals to your plants. For example Mica crystals provides potassium, calcium, copper, manganese, magnesium, iron, zinc, nickel, and copper! The crystals you choose to live with your plants will weather and break down to relase their minerals into the soil over time.

    Hi Arabella, for general healing of plants, I would use any Tourmaline. The colors only come into play when you are focusing on a specific chakras or specific energifes that the color of that stone may vibrate with. For example, Black Tourmaline is very specifically related to protection from negative energies and is connectred with the Root Chakra.

    As for placing stones back in the soil of the Earth, I like to use any of the crystals, even broken/chipped pieces. Let me know if you have any different experiences, I would love to hear them.

    For the tourmaline – is black tourmaline good or normal tourmaline better?
