How to live your best crystal life

It's very easy to buy a load of crystals and just leave them on your windowsill, but even though you'll still reap the benefits, many experts suggests trying your best to include them in your everyday routine - wearing them around your neck for example or popping one in your bag when you're on your way to a meeting or hospital appointment.

Touching your crystals daily will also increase their powers, as skin to skin contact will amp up the bond of energy that you have with them.
