Healing Stones- Do they work or are they just a fashion trend?

A few days ago, I visited a lovely store called Namaste bookshop. The store sells books of philosophy and beautiful crystals that are believed to heal. Namaste transforms these crystals into jewelry. According to my husband, the healing stones are just a bunch of fluff that are marketed towards women who love shiny things.  On the other hand, my best friend truly believes in the magic of the stones. I listened to them argue about the subject for almost thirty minutes; so, I knew I had to try them for myself.

I bought a package of healing stones and crystals that hang from a necklace. My favorites were an amethyst and black tourmaline necklace. Amethyst is thought of as a protective stone. The sales associate at Namaste even told me it can heal headaches. I’m not sure if she was telling the truth or just trying to make a sell, but I can tell you that I haven’t had a headache since I’ve bought the stone. Coincidence? Maybe.

Black tourmaline is believed to protect against earth demons and ward off negative energies. I wore the black tourmaline on a chain all day, and that day was surprisingly positive. Also, the necklace is beautiful, so I would have worn it even if it didn’t have magical powers.

It may be all fluff; but once you believe in something, it can work just as well as medicine. Why do you think scientists still use the placebo pill? Want to find out for yourself? Check out Namaste Bookshop or visit Etsy  to buy these amazing healing stones.
