Aside from making things look shiny and pretty, crystals also have health benefits. For the longest time, crystals are believed to release physical, mental, and spiritual blockages. This is also why crystal therapy exists to heal and promote energy balance among its patients.
Of course, not all of us have access or simply don’t have crystals on-hand. Good thing there are brands out there which infuse crystals and gems in their products. They mostly work to promote cell renewal and give you the best results possible. I mean, who wouldn’t want to apply precious gems on their skin anyway?
