DIY Crystal Powder Uses

June 5, 2017 4:39 am Published by

Need a good excuse to fit in some self-care and buy crystals? First and most important, you don’t need an excuse for either. Second, I’m going to go ahead and give you 3 really good reasons to invest in some serious self-care time and my new favorite use for crystal, crystal powders.

Wearing crystals is always nice, and I’m usually wearing a point crystal necklace or a gemstone ring that has a meaning behind it. Crystal powders can expand your crystal benefits even more by using them in body care products.

These products can come for pretty steep prices, but I’ve got three recipes to get you started with crystal powder products that will leave you some cash to spare.

Garnet Love Oil

Connect to your earthy sensual side with this garnet love oil. Red garnet is a great stone for promoting loving relationships, and has even been used in the past as a stone to attract a lover! Rub the oil into your skin for a sensual glow and delicious scent or use it as a massage oil.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 oz. garnet powder, finely ground.
  • 3-4 oz. sweet almond oil
  • 6-8 drops of essential oil. Any of these will work wonderfully: Plant Guru’s “Love Potion,” rose, sandalwood, ylang ylang, and/or jasmine. I used “Love Potion” with a couple drops of rose oil, which made a heavenly combination!
  • Small funnel or folded card stock to get your crystal powder in your bottle mess-free
  • 3-5 oz. glass bottle
  • Garnet chunks (optional, but, again super cute)
  • Craft labels (optional)


  • Combine all of your ingredients into your vessel and give it a good shake.
  • Apply oil to your skin fresh out of the shower or anytime you’re wanting to feel extra sexy! This blend is also an ideal sensual massage oil.

Quartz Body Scrub

Need some balancing? This scrub is for you. Quartz is the ultimate balancing stone so I love it for the body scrub. Click here if you want to learn more about the ultimate crystal. Scrub with intention as you visualize your chakras while receiving the energetic balancing from the quartz crystal, and a nice glow from the exfoliation!

What you’ll need:

  • 1-2 oz. quartz, medium ground
  • 10-15 oz. of organic cane sugar (amount can vary depending on how much quartz you intend to purchase and the size of your vessel)
  • Coconut oil, enough to cover your sugar and quartz sand
  • Essential oil of your choice (optional). I used Plant Guru’s “New Beginnings” for an uplifting and invigorating blend. Quartz is a balancing stone so any scent you want will work well for this one!
  • Large glass vessel, I used a 16 oz. amber jar
  • Kraft labels (optional)


  • Combine sugar and quartz powder, give it a good shake.
  • Poor enough coconut oil in to cover the sugar and quartz.
  • Add your EO’s and stir it up.
  • Keep this concoction in your shower for an exfoliating glow and energetic balancing.
  • Store in an airtight container.

Amethyst Foot Soak

Already love amethyst? Prepare to become obsessed with it.  This mix has stolen my heart! There are SO many amazing benefits to this combo. If this is your first time hearing about this amazing stone, click here to learn more. Some believe that amethyst can actually help remove toxins from the body. In fact, you can even purchase detoxifying foot pads with amethyst in them. I say, save your $$$ and use this recipe for a more cost-effective amethyst detox!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 oz. amethyst powder, finely ground
  • 1-3 oz. Himalayan salt, small to medium ground
  • Amethyst chunks (optional, but super cute)
  • Essential oil of your choice, I used lavender for this soak
  • 2-5 oz. metal or glass container
  • Craft labels (optional)


  • Combine all of the dry ingredients into your vessel and give them a good shake.
  • Put 5-6 drops of the EO of your choice in your mix and give it another good shake.
  • Create a rad label (optional).
  • Add half of your amethyst foot soak into a large bowl of warm water and soak your feet in it for a minimum of 30 minutes.
  • When you’re done, pat your feet dry rather than wiping them off or cleaning them off. This will leave some of the salt and amethyst residue on your feet for continued benefits.
  • This mix will be good for 2-3 foot soaks, depending on how much salt you end up using. Keep it sealed in an airtight container while not in use.

I hope you found these recipes as delicious and cleansing as I did! One final note, some gemstones, like lapis, are toxic and are not appropriate for body care products! None of the crystals used in these DIYs are, but be safe and do your research before creating your own concoctions.
