Hello Lovelies! I had a request to post recommendations for mommas with newbies, so here are some of my favourite crystals and oils!
Before I dive into the details though, I would STRONGLY recommend that ANY crystals kept near baby (this includes toddlers) and in baby’s room are large enough NOT to fit in baby’s mouth, and are kept OUT of reach. If you are going to lay any crystals on baby’s body, PLEASE supervise at all times!! Please use common sense when using small objects, crystals or anything else near baby. We don’t want any choking hazards. I also do NOT recommend using essential oils internally or topically on baby. All essential oil recommendations I make are to be used in a diffuser or humidifier.
Hopefully, I haven’t scared you away now, but I felt that needed to be mentioned. Being at home with a newbie truly is a special time, but it can also be trying for us moms. We want to choose crystals that bring in loving, soothing vibes, that will nurture the growing bonds between baby and parents, but it’s also good to have some crystal babies on hand to soothe baby through any physical discomfort. (I will do a separate post for mommas).
~ Spirit Quartz is an uplifting, high-vibe crystal that takes Quartz to another level! Often mistaken for fairy quartz or ‘amethyst’ spirit quartz, this variant is white and is often sold as ‘cactus quartz’. Perfectly balancing yin-yang (female/male energies), spirit quartz carries the vibration of universal love, instilling patience and community within the home, facilitating family bonding, especially when a new member of the family in brought into the home. Often mistaken for fairy quartz or ‘amethyst’ spirit quartz, this variant is white and is often sold as ‘cactus quartz’.
~ Moonstone , with its gentle, feminine energy, is great for baby as it protects them as they merge into their new world, especially as they spend lots of time withdrawing and re-entering their body through sleep time. Offering increased patience and allowing to new routines and synchronicities, Moonstone brings harmony to the home.
~ Hematite (and black tourmaline) is a personal favourite for grounding and calming littlies of any age. Hematite is a strong protection stone, and when kept in baby’s room, or placed underneath their cot, creates an environment where they feel calm, safe and protected.
~ Apatite brings a gentle, soothing energy to babies, helping them settle in and be comfortable with their bodies and surroundings. Apatite also encourages healthy function of the digestive system, important too for littlies.
~ Blue Kyanite brings calm and tranquillity with its gentle energy. When placed on the body, blue kyanite physically alleviates pain and discomfort.
~Amber, a powerful yet gentle healer and cleanser, it not only relieves physical pain, but it draws out and transmutes negative energy of all kinds on all levels. Amber also helps with the organs of elimination, including the liver, kidneys, bladder, and stomach, aiding colic and other ‘windy’ issues baby might have.
~And last, but definitely not least, Rose Quartz. Rose Quartz is like a warm snuggle for little ones and when kept in baby’s room helps baby adjust to the new experience of being separate from mum. Rose Quartz lamps in baby’s room will create a soothing, loving environment where baby will feel calm, loved and safe.
I know that there are many people who recommend keeping amethyst and selenite in baby’s room, but I advise against it. While these are both two of my favourite crystals, they are very high vibe and, especially amethyst, can give one vivid dreams, which can result in restless sleep for littlies and newbies alike. My daughter has a ton of amethyst, in fact, she is always wearing her fairy quartz pendant, but it’s not kept in her bedroom. By all means, keep it everywhere else in your house, just away from where little one’s sleep.
Essential oils diffused in a room, or used with a humidifier can have beneficial effects on baby too;
~ Peppermint, Eucalyptus, or Melaleuca oils help in relieving congestion and soothe coughing.
~ Lavender, Roman Chamomile, and Bergamot all have wonderful soothing aromas that calm baby during bath time, feeding time and before sleep time.
There are many essential oils brand on the market, but personally, I only use Doterra oils as they are 100% natural organic oils. If you need to buy any oils, you can get them directly through my shop tab.
As always, these are my personal recommendations through my working with crystals and essential oils. If you have any questions regarding how to use crystals and oils, feel free to get in touch! 🙂
~ Love & Light, Kerry.
