If you are just getting into crystals, it can definitely be a tad overwhelming to know where to start. With so many crystals out there, each with their own multitude of properties, finding the right ones for your needs can seem nearly impossible. That is why we have compiled a list of the five essential crystals to start your healing journey!

The Starter Bundle


A natural tranquilizer, Amethyst relieves stress and strain, soothes irritability, balances mood swings, and dispels anger, rage, fear, and anxiety.

Rose Quartz

Rose Quartz helps you let go and deal with negative emotions to start the road to forgiveness and unconditional love. This crystal helps you overcome childhood trauma, fear, and anger, filling you with its calming, reassuring energy.

Clear Quartz

This white crystal is considered a “master healer.” It's said to amplify energy by absorbing, storing, releasing, and regulating it. It's also said to aid concentration and memory.


A calming stone that instills deep peace and is excellent for meditation or spiritual work. It provides clarity and assists in decision-making and letting go of what no longer serves you. You may also use selenite to cleanse other crystals.


Citrine attracts wealth, prosperity, and success. It strengthens self-esteem, helps with emotional balance, and alleviates fears. This crystal also enhances concentration, revitalizes the mind and encourages self-expression.

You got your Starter Bundle - now what?

It is very important to note that just having these stones won’t cure you of all your problems. You must work with the crystals so that they will work with you. Acquiring is the first step, next you need to learn how to harness their energies, set intentions, and cleanse and charge them. But you must also ask yourself: what is your journey?

Are you hoping to find something you didn’t have before? Trying to overcome trauma or grief? Expecting to learn how to be a better partner, friend, family member? Identifying the problem is the first step to finding a solution.

These five crystals are a great way to start and will work in conjunction with other stones to help your healing. But as you delve deeper into this world, you will find more crystals that fit your specific needs.
