Ever worn jewelry while bathing?

Moonstone necklace to balance emotions


There are lots of articles in media about using stones and crystals for healing but gemstones, both precious and semi-precious can also be used in crystal healing.

Here is a way to combine some of the views of Indian Vedic gemology with crystals -even while bathing.

Instead of carrying the crystal or stone in your pocket, you can wear it as jewelry making it easier, attractive and more importantly convenient to get the full benefit of the crystal. This jewelry can take the form of rings, pendants, bracelets, rings and earrings.

One can use faceted gemstone jewelry too, especially if it is set in gold, silver or copper as these metals are good conductors of energy.


Indian Vedic Astrology- a different perspective

Indian Vedic Astrology takes a slightly different view of gemology where there are rules based on the astrological sign, the cleansing ritual, date and time of initial adornment and is strict about the combination of gems that can be used. For example, one cannot wear Emeralds and Yellow Sapphire at the same time.

This is because jewelry pieces containing multiple kinds of stones generally do not work for healing as their different energies usually cancel each other out, and so most jewelry suitable for healing contains only one kind of stone.

Jewelry pieces with multiple stones can be used for healing as long as the stones are all the same kind, for example: a pendant with several red garnets or a bracelet of amber.

At the same time there are combinations that can work as they harmonize with each other. For example, if you are wearing a Yellow Sapphire, you can wear Pearl or Orange Coral on your person.

There are rules about the setting of the gems and which metal is to be used and the minimum carat gem required to achieve the desired results or healing.

The gem is required to touch the body and the base of the jewelry should be hollow to enable the light to permeate the qualities of the gem to your body and enter your aura.

If you are going to use gemstones for healing, then it makes sense to research it well before application but there is 1 application that works well both with crystals and gems.

The only precaution is to check if water can be used to cleanse the crystal otherwise the technique that I am going to share will ruin your crystal or gem.

I’ve covered the topic of crystals and gemstones under Vedic gemology in my post The Magic of Crystals


How to take a gemstone bath with the right gem

Indian Vedic gemology talks about taking a gemstone bath which means that you wear the crystal or gem while bathing to allow its benefits to permeate through your body and aura.

There is no great ritual to be performed, just an ordinary bath or shower!

This technique can be applied for all gems and crystals that are not water soluble. For example, if you are wearing coral, then better not to use this technique as the shine of the coral will be affected.

If you are not keen to wear your diamond or emerald necklace in the bath, here are some suggestions that work well. The important part is to have that crystal or gem on your person.

Since water is good for balancing the Sacral Chakra, you can use the following crystals during your water meditation described in my ebook on Stress Management with Chakra Balancing Exercises .

Alleviate stress, worry, and anxiety by wearing aventurine, black tourmaline, black onyx, lapis, sodalite, chrysocolla, rose quartz, citrine, or snowflake obsidian.


Snowflake obsidian pendant is a good Worry Stone


If you need to balance your emotions, wear Moonstone, chrysocolla, aventurine, rose quartz, and blue lace agate.

Wear aquamarine, aventurine, moonstone or rose quartz for calming your nerves.

I personally love the snowflake obsidian and wear it on my person in the form of a bracelet whenever I have a deadline project to ensure that I stay stress free and take it with me for a shower too.

Does it work? It does for me and a big part of the working is having faith that the gentle crystal or gemstone will support you if you ask it to with respect.

Do you practice gemology or use crystals for booster support? Ever tried using it for a crystal/gemstone bath? Do share your experiences in the comments box below. I’d love to read about it.


PS. The gemstones that I mentioned in this post also work for stress management and chakra balancing.  I invite you to check another resource that I have created which my Stress Management clients have found useful as part of their coaching.

    It’s really interesting to learn that you need to be cautious of which crystals you put together, in case they cancel each other out. I love moonstone and it really does make me feel more balanced when I’m touching it. I like obsidian too but have not tried it as a worry stone. I have some so am going to try. Thanks for all the interesting information.

    • Karmic Ally says:

      I love Moonstone too, Tamuria, and Snowflake Obsidian is wonderful for balance and stress management. My favorite is the Amber when I need inspiration though I wouldn’t wear it while bathing for fear of its losing its sheen.

  2. Ariel @ Keys to My Life says:

    Gemstone baths sound interesting! I’ve never heard of them.

  3. Delia Rusu says:

    At first I thought this post would be about advice not to wear jewelry when bathing so that you won’t ruin it 🙂

    Oh boy, I think I would need to look into wearing so many gemstones Vatsala, they all sound so good to keep yourself calm and relaxed, which is something I really need these days, hehe… Not sure what moonstone is, I’ll google it out.

    • Karmic Ally says:

      I couldn’t stop smiling when I read your comment, Delia. Sometimes an intriguing headline does work, doesn’t it? 🙂 Do check out Moonstone. I think you will like it.

  4. Awesome information. The East can definitely learn a lot from Vedic Astrology & healing crystals. Love this information & will be pinning to several boards as well as sharing on platforms. I believe our fans have expressed an interest in learning more. Appreciate your links to other articles.

    • Karmic Ally says:

      Thank you Roslyn! I was quite touched by the awesome response my guest post at your blog received last year. To new knowledge!

  5. This is a very fascinating article, Vatsala. One of my friends who is an intuit and shaman, makes gemstone jewelry and before I was having surgery many years ago, he sent me several bracelets. I still wear one of them. It is black tourmaline with smokey quartz. I take it off at night, but wear it each day, as a protector bracelet.

    There is a U.S. company called Seeds of Light who make incredible pendants, each with a different combination of stones for a different purpose. I wear one every day as well and depends on what I want my energy of the day to be, which one I wear. I’ve never bathed with any of my crystals on actually, as I’ve never heard of the practice. Sounds quite lovely. I have stones everywhere in my house, and my daughter has been a big rock and mineral lover since a child. We both seem to love collecting them. Big rose quartz greets visitors before they enter my home as well. Thanks for the fabulous read!

    • Karmic Ally says:

      I’m delighted I’ve introduced the possibility of a new experience with gemstones and crystals for you Beverley.Do try it out after checking if the gem is compatible with water. By the way, I keep an Amethyst and Clear Quartz under my pillow at night to help me sleep better and remove any negative ions that I might have attracted during the course of the day. I cleanse them routinely to keep them working at optimal level.

  6. K. Lee Banks says:

    This is fascinating! I never heard of using gemstones while bathing or about using the “right” ones.

    I love the necklace in the first photo! Beautiful.

    • Karmic Ally says:

      Thanks! Do give it a try. It does work. The necklace is indeed beautiful. I have a few with different gem combinations and they work their magic without bathing in them. 🙂

  7. Leila says:

    This is quite interesting and very new concept to Me. Thank you for sharing.

  8. Wow, there is so much to learn about this subject. Thank you for sharing your wisdom with us.

  9. I so appreciated your article and learned a lot!

    I was bathing with crystals as an intuitive practice, and now you’ve so wonderfully explained the rationale behind it.

    When I travel, I ask the Goddess/Mother Earth/Pachamama if I can take a rock or crystal that I might find outside or in a store. As a result, I have quite a rock/crystal collection including rocks from Shimla where I visited in 2004 during a 3-week trip in India.

    • Karmic Ally says:

      We often do practices intuitively that come from a different lifetime, Lore, and I would venture to say your connection to Indian Vedic tradition is coming from previous memories. Rocks and crystals from India is really a unique memento!

  10. Heather says:

    I love all my gemstones. They connect directly with our consciousness. Taking a bath is such a meditative state. I love to light candles and take them in the bath with me. I also wear some as jewelry. I have a chakra necklace and I also love my Lapis Lazuli necklace made with copper. It’s my favorite gemstone. Great post!

  11. I really enjoyed this informative post. I find water cleanses my spirit and energy body, you gave me something to think about with the gemstone bath, Vatsala-thanks!
