Crystals & Essential Oils For Your Heart Chakra


The main colora of the heart chakra are green and pink. So really, any green or pink stones are beneficial for balancing. Here are some of my favorite to use for this chakra.

  • Rose Quartz: this is the crystal of love and is pretty much the “go to” heart chakra crystal. It helps with self love and loving others. It’s a very calm and nurturing stone.
  • Green jade: increases love and nurturing and is also a protective stone.
  • Peridot: helps you release guilt, opens and cleanses the heart chakra.
  • Amazonite: soothing stone, helps balance your yin and yang energies.


There are many oils for the heart chakra, but here are some of my favorites.

  • Geranium: promotes emotional wellness and feelings of love. Do not use if pregnant or nursing.
  • Jasmine: promotes feelings of love and romance. If you’re pregnant, avoid this oil. This oil can also make you feel sleepy, so use caution.
  • Rose: the ultimate love oil. Avoid if pregnant.

As always, please check with your health care professional before using any oils if you have any concerns.
