How much do you love your bath time? How much do you love your crystal collection? Crystal vibration mania is real! People have been putting crystals and stones in their homes, pockets and bath water, all around the world, and have been doing so since the old ages.
Here at Happy Soul, we are often asked which crystals are safe to use in water, to raise the vibrations of your body and to balance and energize your chakras.
Using crystals in bathing rituals is quickly becoming a rising trend (#crystalbath).
Happy Soul wants to continue to be your crystal knowledge resource and we asked Joey Wargachuk (Crystal Master) and Graciela Gabica (Certified Crystal Healer with Hibiscus Moon) to help you better understand what you are in store for when you casually think of tossing a few crystals in while pouring your bath.
Running a bath can be a spiritual experience. Make it a scheduled activity to give you something to look forward to after a long day or week. Turn off your phone, light a few candles, turn off the lights and use your favourite bubble bath to set the mood. Adding crystals to this relaxing activity can help to change your vibration, balance your chakras and release stress and negativity.

Best essential oils for your bath ritual
As 100% pure essential oils can be very fragrant, proceed slowly when adding scents to your bath water - one drop goes a long way. Some bath scents to consider: bergamot, lavender, rose, sandalwood, geranium, patchouli, frankincense, chamomile.

Side note: Epsom salt can also deteriorate the compounds of a crystal or stone. Make sure you know which ones are good to use with bath salts.
And lastly, how to read a book in the bath without getting it wet
One of the calmest experiences is reading the perfect book as you cleanse and distress in the tub. The challenge here is not to send that perfect book swimming in a swirl of salt and crystals.
The perfect solution would be that we all snap our fingers and a crystal butler, named Butlerite, showed up to hold your book in front of your face as you read. Intuitively knowing when to turn the next page, and adjusting the water temperature when we decide to read just one more chapter. Butlerite covers it all!
We know that we are not all level 20 Wizards who can whip up the perfect bath-time helper such as Butlerite can, so we suggest a side table and some extra towels. A side table allows you to set your book down for a moment and a towel to dry your hands, as not to warp that great read.
Some of the wonderful books we recommended are Krista Mitchells' "Change Your Energy" and Yasmin Boland’s "Moonology."
