It’s February, and love is in the air. Whether you’re celebrating the Hallmark holiday coming up or not, there’s no better time to focus on love than now—whether it’s loving those close to us or taking the time to put some much-needed attention on ourselves. All to say, you might want to get your hands on some rose quartz right about now.
The rose quartz is the stone of unconditional love. It supposedly allows love to flow into your very being, bringing your consciousness to a higher level and flushing out negativity. It carries the healing energies of compassion, peace, tenderness, and comfort. It reawakens the heart—connecting directly to the heart chakra—and helps dispel fear and emotional wounds. Sure, the love of your life probably won’t magically appear on your doorstep, but it opens you up to the possibilities of finding that special someone—or strengthening what relationships you already have.
Not all of us are into crystals, though—or, not all of us want others to know we’re into crystals. So, how can we reap the benefits of this gorgeous, blush pink stone without having to become a crystal-wielding, New Age-y type?
For those of us who aren’t looking to have a giant hunk of pink rock on our nightstand or carry a piece in our pocket wherever we go, we rounded up the best rose quartz products—from jewelry and housewares to beauty products and smoking accouterments—so you can still get your fix. And even if you don’t give a damn about what metaphysical properties the rose quartz—or any crystal, for that matter—is believed to hold, each piece is undeniably pretty as hell.
