Whether you tuck away a piece of labradorite before a job interview or rest purple amethyst on your chest to soothe a broken heart, crystals can serve a wide variety of purposes. In fact, there's even a groundswell of interest in crystals that are believed to promote better sex by firing up your personal headspace or attracting specific kinds of sexual energy from a partner. According to Michael Cardenas, an energy healer and head witch at Olde Ways, crystals are as powerful as you make them. "Crystals are most potent when their direction is clear, so be intentional about your selection, placement, and treatment of them in order to bring the greatest benefits to your life, in and out of the bedroom," Cardenas says.
So, how can you make your (sexy) intentions clear? "Selecting a phallic or yonic-shaped crystal is a good way to signal to yourself, and to the universe, the type of energy you're looking for," Cardenas tells POPSUGAR. Still, he recommends letting your intuition guide your selection process. Pay attention to the shape, weight, size, and color of the crystal and what these elements evoke for you. There are no wrong answers.
From there, proper placement and treatment of your crystals will help center your energy and draw in their properties. But which properties and practices matter most for better sex? Keep reading for the sex crystals Cardenas recommends.
