Did you know that water can make it easier for you to connect with your crystals? It’s true – water is a great conductor and will amplify the frequencies of crystals. Bathing with crystals is an additional way you can benefit from their healing properties. And let’s be honest, it’s one of my favourite ways to work with my crystal companions.
Are you ready to get started? Scroll down to learn step-by-step how you can connect with crystals in a bath.
How to Connect with Crystals in a Bath
(1) What is your intention?
The first step is to set your intention. A clear intention is essential when it comes to connecting with crystals. Ask yourself: “what am I trying to heal or work on?” Whether your answer is self-forgiveness, compassion, self-love, etc., be sure to know what you are working towards.
(2) Choose Your Crystals
Once you set your intention, the next step is to find crystals that can assist you with your intention.
All crystals and stones are unique, vibrating at different rates, which means that a single crystal will not assist you with everything. So you must choose your crystals wisely.
If your intention is to work on self-love, for example, you could select rose quartz – the crystal of love – for your bath to assist you with this. Choose a crystal that resonates with you and your intention.
(3) Is it Water Safe?
Not all crystals are water safe. Depending on the crystal, water can cause your crystals to dissolve, break, oxidize, and even become toxic.
Do not use a crystal in water if you do not know whether it is water safe. If you find out that the crystal you chose to assist you with your intention is unsafe for water, choose a different crystal. Learn more about water-safe crystals inside the How to Choose Water Safe Crystals post.
(4) Connecting with crystals in the bath
The simplest way to connect with crystals in the bath is to set your intention and add them to your bath. The water will amplify the crystal’s frequencies, creating a bath in alignment with your intention.
Alternatively, you could place the crystals in the bath in a specific place, making up a crystal grid around your body. You could hold a crystal in your hand as you meditate. Or you can even place the crystals on your body while lying in the bath.
The best pathway to connect with crystals is the one your intuition guides you to. Trust your intuition, for it knows the way.
(5) Thank your crystal companions
Always remember to thank your crystal companions for their assistance after your bath. And be sure to take them out of the tub before draining the bathwater.
I love to visualize anything that no longer serves me going back down the drain into the centre of the earth after every bath.

FAQs about Crystal Baths
Note: I am not a medical doctor. Please consult with your doctor to ensure this is right for you. Use the information here at your own risk.
How many crystals do I add to my bath?
If you are using the same crystal type – for example, rose quartz – there really is no limit to the amount you can put in your bath. Use as many as you feel guided to.
How many different crystals can I add to my bath at one time?
You want to have a clear intention when connecting with crystals. And it’s for that reason that I recommend combining no more than three different crystal types in a bath. Any more than that can muddle your intention.
Is there anything else that I can combine with crystals to get even more in alignment with my intention?
Yes! You can indeed have a bath with just crystals in it, but I highly recommend incorporating other tools in your bath to get you even more in alignment with your chosen intention.
You can pair your crystals with essential oils, bath salts, soaps, a candle, and music.
When it comes to essential oils, the type of essential oil to use in your bath will depend on your intention. For example, if your intention is relaxation, you could use Lavender essential oil in your bath.
There’s nothing better than taking a bath lit in candlelight, listening to some calming music, smelling the beautiful aroma of an essential oil, while being surrounded by your crystals. After all, the more you relax, the more you assist your body’s natural healing process.
How long do I need to bathe with crystals?
Any amount of time with crystals is beneficial. But I recommend taking at least a 15-minute bath when bathing with crystals.
Also, know that you may need more than one bath to work towards your intentions. It took time for the energetic and emotional blockages to occur, and it may take time for you to bring those areas back into balance.
And there, you have five simple steps to connect with crystals in a bath. Let your intuition be your guide, and see what comes up for you while connecting with your crystals.
Happy crystal bath!
