Sacred bathing. If you’re a bath person, then bring your crystal helpers with you next time you indulge! Amethyst and clear quartz can go directly into your bath water. For the other stones, just keep them near the bath, either on the floor or counter (softer stones don’t like water).

Set intentions for third eye opening as you prepare your bath, and relax while your stones go to work on you.
