Take A Bath With Crystals And Gemstones

March 12, 2013

Have you ever taken a bath with a crystal or gemstone?


Soothing Lepidolite Crystals

It might sound strange at first to think about putting stones in your bath tub,  this is just one more way of receiving the healing benefits that gemstones can offer us.

What do you look forward to after a long stressful day at work? Coming home and taking a long, hot bath, right? We all know that soaking in a tub after a hard day helps to melt away the stress, so adding soothing, calming stones like Lepidolite, Larimar, or Kunzite to your bath water will help calm and relax you after the day from “hell”.

Here is my favorite recipe for a relaxing bath:

  • Place a piece of Lepidolite into the tub allowing the water to run over it as the tub fills. If you have more than one piece you can add them too. Just be sure you don’t lose them down the drain when you let the water out. You can put your stones into a mesh cloth bag if you prefer and let this bag hang down into the water.
  • Add pure Lavender essential oil, about 10 drops
  • Add 1 Cup sea salt
  • Light a candle and dim the lights
  • Soak 15-20 minutes


If you are having trouble sleeping, prepare for yourself a nice hot bath, add Petalite to the bath water. Petalite is the perfect choice to assist you when you need to rest or need help falling asleep.


Tired muscles? Maybe you over did it in the gym. Put some Epsom salts in your bath and add the stone Orange Carnelian to help ease those sore muscles. Carnelian is a great energy revitalize. You’ll make it to the party after all!

Looking for a romantic bath with your partner or lover? Try putting some Rose Quartz in and around your bath tub. Light a candle, add some soothing romantic music and let the loving energy of Rose Quartz work its magic!

Rose Quartz the stone of love

Baths are a wonderful way to detoxify your body. Chose any of the black stones, like Black Tourmaline, Obsidian, Black Onyx to help pull out harmful toxins from your body.

There are many stones that like to go into a warm bath, but caution is necessary, as not all stone do well in hot water for long periods of time. The general rule is avoid soft stones like Selenite, Malachite, Turquoise, Amber, Pearl. These stones are best placed around the tub, rather than in it.

For these and other gemstones please see my Crystal & Gemstone Gallery.

Get creative with your baths and invite some of your favorite gemstones in with you and receive their healing energy.
