Best Stones to Enhance Love and Intimacy

Are you looking to enhance intimacy in your life, and bring intimacy, passion, and sensuality into your relationship? Discover the best crystals and healing stones for the job. Often times when we lack intimacy or passion, it's because of energetic blockages in our physical body—specifically blockages of the base and sacral chakras.

You can use crystals to recharge your intimate energetic centers with your partner, create an irresistible aura before a night out, or enhance love by tucking crystals or stones around the bedroom, bed, and under the pillow. They're also used for creating gem essences.

Unblocking or Recharging the Base and Sacral Chakras

It is especially important to unblock or recharge both the base and sacral chakras on the body because they harness and house passion and energy.

Sacral Chakra (Svadisthana)

Location: center of the abdomen

Color: orange

Body part: pelvis

The second chakra is associated with what the body finds enjoyable. When balanced, we can accept life in a creative manner, express our emotions positively, and engage in healthy intimacy.

Root Chakra (Muladhara)

Location: base of the spine

Color: red

Body part: elimination, central nervous system

The first chakra houses the "kundalini" life force. The root chakra is responsible for harnessing our sense of groundedness in the universe, which includes trust, survival, and basic necessities.

Love Recharge Ritual

You can use this ritual before a special date. It is best done in the privacy of your home, at a beach, under the sun, or under the full moon.

One of the most overlooked aphrodisiacs in the U.S. is (money). There is something about a rich man that turns lots of women on. "Diamonds are a girl's best friend" is almost a cliché.

I don't say this to be glib but merely to point out the fact such thinking exists and oftentimes to proves to be true.

Generally speaking if there is something lacking in one's libido the most common causes are lack of rest, stress, health issues, or some underlying discontentment with one's partner.
