As a mom of young kids, I know how hard it can be to fit self-care into my schedule. Between taking care of my children and doing all the household chores, there never seems to be enough time in the day. I have started using crystals as a small way to be kind to myself and give myself a boost depending on the crystal properties I am in need of that day. Crystals are a great way to connect with your intuition and get guidance from the universe. In this blog post, I will share some tips and tricks that have helped me use crystals as a mom with young kids.
One way that I have found crystals to be helpful is by keeping them in my purse or diaper bag. This way, I can pull one out and hold it whenever I need a quick pick-me-up. Another way I like to use crystals is by placing them around my house in areas where I spend a lot of time. For example, I have a crystal on my nightstand that helps me relax before bed. I also have a crystal in my living room that helps me feel more grounded when I am feeling frazzled.

-In the car: keep a crystal in your car to help you stay calm during traffic or errand-running.
-At your child’s school: place a crystal in your child’s backpack or on their desk to help them focus and concentrate.
-While nursing: hold a crystal in one hand while you are nursing to help you feel more connected to your baby.
-In your postpartum recovery: place crystals on your abdomen or in your bathwater to help with healing. (Some crystals dissolve in water. Be sure to do some research on the crystals you want to get wet).
-Crystal tea cups: make crystal-infused tea to drink throughout the day.
What crystals are best for mothers with young kids?
There are a few different crystals that I would recommend for mothers with young kids. One is amethyst. Amethyst is a great crystal for calming the mind and promoting relaxation. It can also be helpful in reducing stress and anxiety. Another good crystal for mothers with young children is rose quartz. Rose quartz is the stone of love and compassion. It can help you to feel more connected to your kids and less overwhelmed by the challenges of parenting. Howlite is also a great crystal for mothers as it helps to promote patience and understanding as well as ease anxiety.
How to use crystals to ease common struggles of motherhood:
There are many different ways that crystals can be used to ease the common struggles of motherhood. For example, if you are finding it difficult to balance parenting with taking care of the house, you can place a crystal in each room to help you feel more grounded and present. If you are feeling anxious or stressed out, try carrying around a crystal in your pocket or holding one while you take some deep breaths. If you are having trouble sleeping, place a crystal on your nightstand or under your pillow to help you relax and fall asleep.
SAFETY: Be sure to keep the crystals out of reach of small children. I have had to learn this the hard way after my daughter got ahold of my rose quartz and tried to eat it! One way to avoid this problem is by using crystals that are too big to fit in their mouths. While this works for decor pieces it is not practical to carry around so you can also wear your crystals either as jewelry or in a crystal-infused scrunchie!
If you are interested in using crystals as a mom with young kids, I would encourage you to start small. Don’t feel like you need to buy a bunch of different crystals or overwhelm yourself with information. Start with one or two crystals that you are drawn to and see how they work for you. Trust your intuition and go with what feels right for you. With a little trial and error, you will figure out what works best for you and your family. Thanks for reading! I hope this blog post has inspired you to give crystals a try.
