Hi Everyone! I wanted to talk about crystals for that time of the month ladies (transgender people included) and crystals for menstrual cramps! Let’s face the facts, it is horrible. You feel uncomfortable, crampy, tired, emotional, cranky; everything all at once and sometimes you eat all the chocolate at once too!
Here are my top picks for when you’re menstruating…
Crystals for Menstrual Cramps:
Selenite and Rose Quartz are an awesome combo to relieve cramps and discomfort for me, especially if you lay a piece of Selenite over the Sacral chakra and a piece of Rose Quartz on each side of it.
Cooler stones work best for me during my cycle so that’s why this combination works well as a healing layout on my body.
Carnelian is another awesome crystal for menstruation, because female reproductive organs are situated in the Sacral chakra area. It is known to assist with menstrual cramps, but it is also said to help regulate blood flow. Most importantly, is that it offers a bit of an energy boost and motivation to do what I need to do. Warmer stones can aggravate my cramping so I don’t like to use this on my body during menstruation. I rather keep them around me in my environment.
Crystals that assist with Hormonal Balance during Menstruation:
Sometimes during that time of the month, you do struggle a little with your hormones and things are out of whack. You cry if you can’t open the peanut butter or eat the whole slab of chocolate… just me? Oh! Right! Anyway on to some crystals that help balance your emotions!
Moonstone is a beautiful stone for women and transgender people. It is incredibly soothing, helps to balance hormonal as well as menstrual cycles and many gravitate toward it because of its feminine energy.
I am a sucker for anything related to the moon so that’s why Selenite is a powerful healer for me, but Moonstone is another one. It reminds you that just like the moon has it’s own cycle, so do you when you have your cycle… I guess that’s why some women and transgender people like it so much.
Chrysoprase is another one that assists with hormonal balance that I just learnt about. I also feel that this may be another good one to soothe cramps as it’s a good stone for healing.
How to Use Crystals for Menstrual Cramps, Flow or Balance:
I wouldn’t recommend you pop a crystal in your panty. I know this might seem tempting and I don’t think it can get lost in there but you may go off to the bathroom and forget that you actually have a crystal in there.
The best way to use these crystals in my opinion is to keep them around you. Sometimes not all the chocolate in the world will make your period time better but crystals are nice to have around. You can also wear them of course or keep them next to your bedside table.
My favourite way to use them is to lie down and place the Selenite on my Sacral Chakra with a piece of Rose Quartz on either side. I do this for about 15 minutes and it’s nice to do before bed as well.
What crystals for menstrual cramps do you find works fantastically and are there any you gravitate towards during menstruation?
