Hi everyone! I’m Gracie, and I’m the founder and owner of Rock Goddess Crystals.
In this blog post, I’ll take you through my top crystals that should be in your home, where to place them, and their properties. All crystals mentioned can be found on my website, as well as on Cositas’ website.
How Do Crystals Work?
Different crystals hold different vibrations and energies, that affect and change the vibrations of the environment that they are placed in, as well as the vibration of those using them for healing purposes. You can set intentions for particular crystals too, amplifying what you want to manifest into your life/home!
Where Should I Place Crystals In My Home?
Keeping crystals in your home as decor raises the overall vibration and clears negative energies away, replacing them with positive ones.
If you have lots of crystals in your collection, they don’t need to be placed next to each other, or even in the same room! Some people don’t like keeping certain crystals together because the vibrations of two different crystals can ‘cancel each other out’ – not in a bad way at all; just like they’re sending a confusing vibrational frequency out to the universe, because different crystals hold different vibrations. For example, citrine is energising, and celestite calms you down, so pairing these two crystals together may not make much sense.
Despite this, you can of course place your crystals wherever and however you like in your home; trust your intuition and go with what feels right for you. Intuitively placing them around your home is great!
However, some people like a little bit of guidance about which crystals they should place where, and that’s where I come in!
⇝ Top tip! You can keep clear quartz literally anywhere in your home; it’s known as the ‘master healer’ and is the most versatile healing stone of all crystals. It works amazingly with any and every other crystal there is, as it amplifies their energies. Clear quartz is also an incredible crystal simply placed on its own – it has a high vibration that clears your mind, aligns you with your highest self, and protects against negative energies. ⇜
Having crystals by your front door and/or in the entryway of your house is one of the most important places to keep crystals in your home. Anyone walking into your home is bringing all of the energy that they came in contact with that day into your home with them. For this reason, having a crystal for protection, as well as one for cleansing is crucial.
My favourites for the front door are selenite and black obsidian.
★ Having a chunk of black obsidian by your front door will help to protect your home from any negative energies.
★ Placing selenite by your front door will help to clear away any negative vibes that anyone who enters your home has come across during the day, so they are not brought into your home.
The living room is the place where most families chill out together, watch movies, talk, and play a few board games together. Most of us want our living room to feel calm, relaxed, and inviting, and certain crystals can help enhance these energies.
My top picks for helping to create a calm living space are amethyst, agate, and sodalite.
★ Keeping a piece of amethyst in your living room will emanate calming energy, bringing all the relaxing vibes that we could all use after a long day. It soothes away anger and anxiety, replacing them with calm.
★ Agate is an incredibly grounding stone that brings emotional, physical, and intellectual balance. It provides harmony between opposing forces, providing soothing and calming energy; agate is the perfect crystal to have near you when having slightly heated discussions.
★ Sodalite is one of the best stones for communication, which is therefore amazing for keeping the living room. It allows you to communicate effectively with your higher consciousness, and helps you speak your personal truth.
The kitchen and dining area are one of, if not the most, liveliest rooms of any home. It’s where the family cooks, eats, converses, and maybe dances too! Crystals with an energetic vibration are best suited for these rooms.
My favourite crystals for these rooms are orange calcite and citrine.
★ Orange calcite is a powerful energy amplifier and cleanser that boosts your vitality and increases the flow of positive energy, dispelling away any negative energy. It’s a great stone for keeping in areas where you want to keep the vibes high!
★ Citrine is a highly energetic and happy stone that carries the power of the sun. It acts as a source of positive energy, raising your vibration and helping you embrace optimism. Citrine is amazing for keeping a joyful energy in the kitchen and/or dining area.
Your bedroom is the place where sleep, love, and relaxation take place. Therefore, crystals with a loving, soft, and calm vibration work amazing in the bedroom. You can keep any larger crystals on your bedside table or anywhere where you feel drawn to placing them in your bedroom. You can place smaller crystals under your pillow when you sleep to feel their energies while you’re sleeping and to reaffirm any intentions that you have set in your crystals.
The top crystals that I’d recommend for the bedroom are rose quartz, amethyst, and celestite.
★ Rose quartz is the stone of universal love. It purifies and opens the heart to magnify love in all forms, including self-love and intimate relationships. Its high frequencies encourage feelings of peace, enhances loving energies, and deepens your connections with loved ones.
★ Amethyst is a must-have crystal for the bedroom. It has an extremely calming energy that soothes away any anxiety, encouraging you to have a good nights sleep. Amethyst’s soothing frequencies can also help those who suffer with insomnia and nightmares.
★ Celestite gets its name from the Latin word for ‘heavenly’ and for good reason! Its gentle, uplifting vibration helps to relieve stress, ease anxiety, and still a chaotic mind from the daily stresses. Keeping celestite in your bedroom will bring all the relaxing vibes.
Your bathroom should simultaneously feel both uplifting and relaxing, and there are some beautiful crystals that can help you achieve this atmosphere in your bathroom. Some people like to place crystals around or in your bath to really immerse themselves in their energies. However, please bare in mind that the bathroom can be very humid (especially if you’re a bath lover!), and there’s a chance of your crystals getting wet when they’re placed in a bathroom. Some crystals can be toxic and/or water-soluble, so choosing the right crystals to keep in the bathroom is very important, especially when bathing with them. Always do your own research when placing crystals near or in water.
My favourite crystals for the bathroom are rose quartz and smokey quartz.
★ Like I said earlier, rose quartz is the stone of love that opens the heart to love in all forms, including self-love. The bathroom is usually the place where you will do your relaxing skincare routine or have a lovely hot bath, and rose quartz is an amazing stone for making these parts of your day extra special by encouraging self-love, as well as feelings of peace.
★ Smokey quartz is one of the most powerful grounding stones that also raises the vibrations in your surroundings. It’s a very protective stone that cleanses any negative energy in the space. Keeping smokey quartz in your bathroom will help you start and end your day feeling peaceful and grounded.
Creating the right environment in your office/workspace in order for you to work effectively is absolutely crucial. Crystals can help you make the perfect work station by enhancing your focus and determination.
My top picks for an office and/or workspace are pyrite, clear quartz, and tiger’s eye.
★ Pyrite increases your motivation, enhances your focus, and boosts your determination and will-power. It can also help you make thoughtful business and financial decisions.
★ Clear quartz will clear your mind from any distracting thoughts, allowing you to focus and think more clearly.
★ Tiger’s eye is considered a stone of success that promotes clarity of intention, and assists you in accomplishing your goals. It also encourages focus and determination.
Cleansing Your Crystals
Just like us, our crystals appreciate a good cleanse every so often. Cleansing your crystals is important to do because crystals retain energies from anyone or anything they come in contact with. Cleansing your crystals allows them to return to their natural energetic state and be cleansed of any unwanted, negative energies.
There are several different methods that you can use to cleanse your crystals. The most popular ones are:
☆ Smoke cleansing using sage, palo santo, incense, or candles
☆ Selenite crystal

I hope this little run down of using crystals in your home was helpful for you. Please feel free to message me on Instagram @RockGoddessCrystals with any questions you have, whether that’s in regards to this blog post or anything else crystal concerned – I’m more than happy to help!
Love + light,
Gracie from Rock Goddess Crystals ♡
