Your home is your sanctuary in so many ways — from your calming bedroom, where you recharge after a night of rest, to your living room, where you may take a midday nap. Just as you can practice the art of burning sage (or smudging) in your home to ensure it has the right energy, placing crystals in certain rooms can also bring healing effects to your space.

"Crystals have a powerful effect on your personal energy, but they can also transform the energy of your [living space]. Placing crystals in the home raises the vibration and fills your space with positive energy. You can use specific crystals in specific rooms to create the energy you are looking for — like relaxation in the bedroom or creativity in the kitchen," Heather Askinosie and Timmi Jandro, co-founders of Energy Muse and authors of Crystal Muse, told Bustle.

According to TinyRituals, rose quartz (hyaline quartz) is all about love and feminine energy. "Rose quartz is a powerful healing crystal," Keith Birch, a crystal healer and reiki master, told Healthline. "Its soft, gentle, almost pastel pale pink coloring is a good indication of its most commonly known property: that of pure love. It's a stone of both giving and receiving love." Healthline also notes joy and emotional healing as the top benefits of this powerful crystal. Here's where you should place rose quartz in your home to experience the maximum benefit.

Put rose quartz in the bedroom to promote love

Rose quartz is an ideal crystal for bedrooms since it encourages love. "Predominantly, rose quartz is a crystal of unconditional love that brings deep healing to the heart by opening the heart chakra," says crystal healer Keith Birch to Healthline. "Once achieved, a deeper state of calmness, serenity, and peace is reached, which ultimately results in complete relaxation, encouraging the feelings of happiness and contentment."

But where exactly should you place the crystal in your bedroom? Birch suggests placing it under a pillow, saying, "You'll take on the soft, peaceful, soothing energies of the crystal as you sleep." Besides the bedroom, Birch also suggests putting it in the center of a home to "enhance compassion and heart healing for the whole family."

Crystal expert Kuhoo Gupta explains to Architectural Digest that the direct placement of the crystal (either natural or rough) matters and can bring positive energy to the bedroom, helping with relationship issues. Placing one rose quartz in the southwest direction can foster growth in relationships, while placing two rose quartz crystals can help keep a lasting bond for a couple. The Spruce also notes that these two crystals could be put on a nightstand, too. The outlet explains that cleansing your crystals by moonlight is a must, which is most powerful during a full moon, along with cleaning it by using water and sea salt, visualization methods to rid of negative energy, and finally, smudging with sage.
