Tap the prop­er­ties of heal­ing stones with these gem-in­fused prod­ucts.

AMETHYST FOR TRAN­QUIL­ITY

1 Soak wor­ries away with So Posh Beauty’s Amethyst Gem-Stone Bath Crys­tals. Its min­eral-rich Dead Sea salt gran­ules nour­ish skin, while the sooth­ing aroma of dried laven­der com­ple­ments amethyst’s pow­ers to boost aware­ness and ease anx­i­ety ($32, so­posh­beauty.com). JADE FOR WIS­DOM 2 Give your­self a mini fa­cial with

Gem­stone Or­ganic’s Or­ganic Jade Face Créme. Mint-green jade may help with man­ag­ing emo­tions and trig­ger self-re­flec­tion. Plus, re­fresh­ing, earthy ve­tiver essen­tial oil clears pores, thanks to its an­tibac­te­rial and an­tiox­i­dant prop­er­ties ($37, gem­sto­ne­or­ganic.com).

SUNSTONE + CITRINE FOR EN­ERGY

3 Think of Aquar­ian Soul’s Sunstone and Citrine Body Oil as sun­shine in a bot­tle. In­vig­o­rat­ing sunstone and citrine are said to tackle lethargy and lift spir­its, while cop­per-toned mica pig­ment gives your skin a sub­tle, healthy glow ($40, shopaquar­i­an­soul.com).

ROSE QUARTZ FOR LOVE

4 San­doval’s Peace Aro­matic Con­cen­trate is in­fused with rose-quartz crys­tals to stim­u­late the heart chakra. This har­mo­nious blend of essen­tial oils in­cludes palo santo, which means “tree of life” and is be­lieved to help re­lease neg­a­tive en­ergy, open­ing up your heart ($60, stu­diosan­doval.com).

TOURMALINE FOR STA­BIL­ITY

5 Her­bi­vore’s Brighten Pineap­ple En­zyme + Gem­stone In­stant Glow Mask works over­time: fruit en­zymes and rice pow­der leave skin vel­vety and bright, while mi­cronized white tourmaline targets the crown chakra and is said to ig­nite con­fi­dence and ban­ish fear ($48, shopomon.com).
