Peach Quartz comes from Brazil. The peach colouring is the result of Haematite inclusions within the Quartz. Because of the Haematite in the Peach Quartz, it has grounding qualities, though not as strong as pure Haematite. These crystals are wonderful for grids, meditation, and energy work. Best of all, they are very affordable.

Peach Quartz can help one to transcend the mundane aspects of life, to open yourself to the Divine, and to discover your true intent that is for the highest good. Using Peach Quartz also helps to promote an understanding of how to connect one’s dreams to their reality, therefore they are very useful for helping one to set and achieve goals.

In meditation, Peach Quartz is wonderful for releasing energy blockages within the Sacral and Higher Heart Chakras. The clearing of these blockages can help one to recover self-respect, independence, creativity, and sociability. Carrying a piece of Peach Quartz that you have charged/enchanted for the purpose will also help to sustain the period afterwards of which these chakras will remain in better function.

Peach Quartz can support those who work in public service by keeping their focus on the needs of others. I believe they significantly help those in highly stressful public service employment, whether that is as a waitress or a firefighter…you may think one is not as bad as the other but unless you’ve been a waitress, don’t be quick to judge. You are constantly putting out fires – of a different kind! Wearing a Peach Quartz necklace or bracelet can do wonders, gently grounding you whilst encouraging your personal power and keeping your emotions in check.

Working with Peach Quartz can help regulate and balance one’s sex drive and encourage one to focus on their partner during sexual intimacy. It will raise your self-esteem and that alone can help many people’s sex life. Carry Peach Quartz with you when you find it difficult to express yourself emotionally or when you feel that you are lacking in personal power.

As Peach Quartz has a very high numerical vibration, it is a wonderful stone to do magick with. If you are a Tarot reader or do any kind of divination, keep a Peach Quartz near you as it heightens your psychic powers.

Oak was a source of food for early settlers in Britain and revered by the Druids.  The Druids (traditionally) would not meet for rituals unless an Oak tree was present.  Religious articles were often fashioned from the tree and Witches danced beneath it.  A tree as long-lived as the Oak naturally offers magickal protection and if you have two twigs of Oak, bound by a red thread in an equal-armed cross, it would be well for you to hang it in your home.

Acorns, of course, have always been used for nature’s help – guarding against lightning strikes, drawing to the bearer wealth, among other things.  But, have you ever considered the magickal power of the Oak bark ?

Logs of Oak were often burned in fireplaces to draw off illness.  Nowadays, not everyone has a fireplace, however, Oak still has a healing property in the bark.  They can be ground fine and used in incense, with the same effect.  Also, in incense to draw money and wealth, protection, luck, fertility, and potency.

Carrying a small pouch of Oak bark in a wallet or handbag draws wealth and adds protection to the bearer.  It can also be used in poppets to effect the properties that you desire for yourself or another.

Thank you for your support and many blessings!
