Citrine Properties & Uses

Citrine, also known as “The Merchants Stone,” is a powerful cleanser and regenerator. Carrying the power of the sun, this stone is amazing for bringing in prosperity, business opportunity, and abundance in all aspects! Its energy enhances emotional balance and willpower, creates a sense of vitality, and strengthens self-esteem and mental clarity, especially during times of uncertainty.

Citrine is great to soothe any discord within a group or family, being a balancer and provider of strength to move on from the past in a more positive direction. It’s also helpful in reversing self-sabotage, increasing concentration, and alleviating distraction and fears. 

Citrine is amazingly beneficial for balancing male and female hormones, working with menstrual problems, menopause, hot flushes, and alleviating fatigue. As the stone is connected to the Solar Plexus and Sacral Chakra, it also helps with stomach issues, constipation, fatigue, blood circulation, and kidney or bladder infections.

How to use & where to place in your home

Wearing this crystal in contact with the skin will bring the most consistent effects.

Due to its properties of creating abundance, you may place it in a cash box or in the wealth corner of your home. (Using the power of Feng Shui, the wealth corner is in the far left back corner of your home, coming in from your front, bedroom, or office door – the southeast corner of your home.)
