Have you ever questioned whether crystals are safe for kids? Or which ones to use?
Children of all ages are drawn to crystals because of their beauty, colour, and form, but also because of their energy and enchantment. Children are more receptive to the healing and metaphysical benefits that each stone has to offer. They may not be able to explain to themselves or others why they are drawn to particular stones, but they will follow their instincts and find comfort in the crystal’s vibrations.
Reasons Why Crystals Are Considered Good For Children
Calming and grounding: Some crystals, such as Amethyst, are thought to have calming and grounding properties that can help children feel more centred and focused. This can be particularly helpful for children who struggle with anxiety, hyperactivity, or difficulty sleeping.
Enhancing creativity and imagination: Some crystals, such as Citrine, are thought to stimulate creativity and imagination. Children may benefit from these crystals if they are feeling uninspired or struggling to tap into their inner creativity.
Providing comfort and emotional support: Crystals such as Rose Quartz are believed to have nurturing and soothing properties that can provide emotional support and comfort to children. This can be particularly helpful during times of stress, sadness, or other emotional upheavals.
Promoting physical healing: Certain crystals, such as Clear Quartz, are believed to have physical healing properties that can help with a range of issues, from headaches to stomachaches. While crystals should never be used in place of medical treatment, they may be a helpful complementary therapy for some children.

Younger children must always be supervised by an adult when wearing or playing with stones.
