Welcome to my article about the best crystals for your bathroom!
Before I get into the crystals to include in the bathroom, and the ones to avoid, let’s first discuss the benefits of crystals in the bathroom.
Benefits of Putting Crystals in Your Bathroom
Crystals are known for bringing positive energy into a room.
You can put them anywhere in your home, but the bathroom is a key location.
Here are some benefits they can bring to your space.
Improves Energy: Each crystal has their own individual characteristics. Some are invigorating, some are healing, some are protective.
Placing them in your bathroom and throughout your home will provide your rooms with the positive vibe they bring.
Looks Terrific: In addition to being beneficial on a physical and psychological level, crystals are lovely to look at.
They come in a variety of textures and colors. They will catch light in the bathroom to add to the aesthetics of the room.
Great for Your Morning and Evening Routine: The bathroom is a place to get ready in the morning and relax in the evening.
Crystals will invigorate you early in the day and help you relax at night.
Where to Put Crystals in Your Bathroom
You can place crystals just about anywhere in your bathroom. However, there are certain crystals that should not be put near water.
In fact, some have such a negative reaction to water that they should not be in the bathroom at all. (We’ll get to those in a minute).
But it’s safe to say that all crystals should be kept away from drains that they can fall into. If this occurs, you will lose the crystal and you may also damage your plumbing system.
How to Decorate Your Bathroom with Crystals
Beyond keeping your crystals away from drains, there is really no end to the places you can put them around your bathroom.
Here are a few decorating tips.
In a Bowl: You can place your selection of crystals in an attractive bowl which can be set next to the sink or tub, on the toilet tank or an any shelving you have in your room.
Hanging in Front of the Window: Some crystals are sold with a rope strung through them so they can be hung in various locations throughout the home.
They will look especially attractive hanging in front of your bathroom window. This will allow them to catch the light, so their color disperses through the room.
Himalayan Salt Lamp: You can also bring a Himalayan salt lamp into your space.
It will fill your bathroom with a soothing yellow glow while cleansing the air and promoting a relaxing environment that’s perfect for your night time ritual.
When decorating, it’s important to pay attention to the height, shape and size of the crystal.
For example, small, flat stones will look good placed in a high spot like a windowsill or shelf. Taller stones will look well mid-level so consider placing these on a toilet tank or sink. Large pointy crystals will look best down low, near the bath.
Which Crystals to Keep Out of the Bathroom
As mentioned earlier, there are certain crystals you will want to keep out of the bathroom because they do not react well with moisture and humidity.
Here are a few you will want to avoid including in your restroom décor.
