If you’ve ever been interested in using crystals to enhance your everyday life, let us introduce you to one of the best crystals to keep around the house – selenite!

Selenite is a form of gypsum crystal that is usually recognised for its pearly white, shimmery and slightly opaque appearance. Each piece of selenite is completely unique, but what exactly is selenite used for? And how can a crystal like selenite help to improve your health and wellbeing?

Selenite is widely renowned for its cleansing and healing properties, and has strong connections to our emotional state. Many people turn to selenite to help with mental clarity, balancing emotions and removing negative energy from their surroundings.

If you’re looking to explore the incredible benefits of selenite further, here are 3 simple ways you can start using this crystal in your very own home!

Aura cleansing with a selenite wand

Selenite wands are small sticks of selenite that are commonly used for aura cleansing. Aura cleansing is essentially a way to clear your energy field, improve your mental clarity and help you feel more balanced and in harmony with your emotions.

If you’ve ever been surrounded by negative people or a negative environment, you know what it feels like for this to leave you in a bad mood. This is because your energy field has absorbed the negative energy, which in turn has an impact on your emotional state.

If you’ve been feeling a little unstable, unwell, or not quite “yourself” – it could be time for an aura cleanse. To cleanse your aura using selenite, simple sweep a selenite wand from head to toe, holding it around 5 inches away from your body. As you do this, visualise all of that negative energy being taken away from your body by the crystal. After a few minutes, you should feel lighter, happier and more like yourself!

Clearing negative energy from the home

In the same way that our auras can become tainted with negative energy, our households can also experience an imbalance in energy levels. Think about how much time you spend in your own home – it’s so important for this to be a happy and positive environment for our health and wellbeing.

Keeping selenite around your home is the perfect way to clear out any negative energy. Simple place selenite lamps, selenite chunks or selenite wands in the areas of your home where you spend the most time, preferably near the window sills. The selenite will help to absorb and clear any negative energy from the household, and keep your spaces feeling happier and healthier.

Alieviating headaches

Do you experience headaches due to stress or tension? Selenite may be able to help as a natural form of pain relief due to its healing and cleansing properties.

A headache is essentially a form of energy blockage, and selenite is renowned for its ability to unblock negative energy. The next time you feel a headache coming on, take a few minutes to lie down and place selenite crystals directly on and around your forehead. This can help to relieve the dull, throbbing pain as the selenite helps to unblock the negative energy.

Selenite is the perfect crystal to have on hand to help keep your emotions balanced and in check! Keep the above tips in mind for 3 of the best ways to use selenite for your health and wellbeing.
