Bloodstone, clear quartz, carnelian, green aventurine, larimar, rainbow fluorite, and green tourmaline have great healing properties and are among the best crystals for colds. It’s important to note that crystals should be used as a supplement to traditional medical treatment, and not a replacement.
Colds are a common ailment that can cause symptoms such as congestion, sneezing, and coughing.
A robust and healthy immune system is the key to keeping yourself clear of those minor ailments that can make your life miserable.
Amongst the many natural remedies and cures for the common cold are therapeutic crystals.
Using crystals to strengthen your immunity, raise your physical vitality levels, and protect you against the negative energies of disease is an excellent way to show yourself some love and care.
The following crystals can help you win the fight against the common cold:
Bloodstone is fortifying and cleansing for the blood and circulatory systems.
It can be used to stanch wounds and to clear infections and puss from wounds but is equally effective against the unseen microbes causing your common cold.
Carry a piece of Bloodstone with you to use as a rubbing stone.
Whenever you feel discomfort from the cold, take a few moments to rest and rub the Bloodstone as you concentrate on fighting off the illness quickly and efficiently.
2. Clear Quartz
Clear Quartz holds more healing powers than any other stone on the planet.
It also increases energy more than any other crystal, including emotional, bodily, mental, and metaphysical energy.
Clear Quartz unblocks stagnant or sick energy from all over the body, especially at the points of intersection in the meridians, and in the chakras.
Blocked energy is the cause of almost every physical manifestation of disease, and this is true of the common cold as well as more serious conditions.
The unique aspect of Quartz as a healer stone lies in its ability to work on the specific vibrational level of the energy requirements of the person who needs healing.
It takes the energy to its most perfect state, back to the time before the dis-ease set in.
Use Quartz to heal yourself of physical discomfort by passing a Clear quartz “wand” over all of your limbs, torso, head, and neck.
Take your time and tune in to the vibrations you feel in the crystal as it passes over different areas.
Be guided by your intuition and stay or move on as required.
Carnelian is full of the life force and vitality of the Earth herself.
It supports the lower chakras, increases blood flow to vital organs, and generates vigor and energy in a lethargic mind or body.
Carnelian helps you to fight the effects of a cold by improving your body’s ability to absorb vitamins and minerals.
It also warms the body, relaxes tense muscles, and generally improves overall well-being.
Use Carnelian in a warm bath to help you to relax and allow your body to fight the infection.
You can also put Carnelian in a bowl of water by your bedside to keep the air clear and aid breathing through congestion.
4. Green Aventurine
Green Aventurine offers protection from negative energies in the atmosphere.
This includes the microbes and bugs that cause colds and coughs.
Place a piece of Green Aventurine by your computer if you work in an office or similar space to help keep other people’s germs away!
Green Aventurine grounds you into the beneficial healing energies of the planet and helps you to stay positive through the trials of minor illnesses.
It also soothes your mind, calms your emotions, and brings deep feelings of peace and serenity.
Wear a Green Aventurine pendant to help keep your lungs and airways free from congestion.
Larimar was discovered only recently and is already gaining a reputation as one of the most important healing stones of the New Age.
It radiates love and peace and promotes tranquility.
It helps you to enter meditation quickly and easily and dissolves self-sabotaging behaviors or self-imposed blockages.
Larimar promotes self-healing.
Gently stroke a smooth piece of Larimar over your chest, neck, and shoulders to remove blocked energies and negative or harmful entities from your aura.
Larimar is especially helpful for Throat conditions.
So wearing a necklace of Larimar can help to bring relief from sore or dry throats caused by colds.
6. Rainbow Fluorite
Rainbow Fluorite is a powerful healing tool for infections and inflammation.
This crystal is powerful against viruses, especially as a gem elixir.
It repairs DNA damage in cells and regenerates the skin and mucus membranes in the respiratory tract.
Use it as a gem essence or elixir to combat the symptoms of chest infections, coughs, and sore throats.
Rainbow Fluorite can also be stroked across the body towards the heart to provide relief from pain.
7. Green Tourmaline (Verdelite)
This form of Tourmaline has all the properties of the black variety, plus a few more.
It is a wonderful healing stone for the Heart and emotions, and also for the physical immune and nervous systems.
One way to use Green Tourmaline is to make a gem essence or elixir. To do this you will need some pure water and a piece of the crystal.
If using bottled water, try to find one that has no added minerals.
First, cleanse your Green Tourmaline by running it under ordinary tap water for a minute or so.
Next, charge your crystal with intention. You can do this in several ways, but the most straightforward way is to sit in a relaxed, meditative state holding the crystal in your hand.
Send your thoughts and intentions to the stone to charge and program it.
Ask that it helps you to heal quickly from the cold or infection and that it also strengthens your immunity so that you do not succumb to the illness again.
Place the crystals in the water and leave them overnight.
You can take the elixir orally in small sips and/or bathe your eyelids and lips with a cotton pad soaked in the essence.
When coughs and colds are rife, use protective crystals to keep the atmosphere around you free from germs.
When you feel the beginnings of a cold starting, get plenty of rest for this is when your body fights the infection most effectively.
Use Soothing crystals to help you to relax and sleep.
Use anti-viral and anti-bacterial crystals to aid the body in fighting the disease, and grounding or earthing crystals to keep you positive and optimistic until the cold passes.
