Here's Where You Should Place Your Black Tourmaline Crystal At Home

As some of you may have noticed, a home's energy can be felt as soon as you walk through the door. To that end, crystals have been a way to clear energy, whether they're placed in a home or worn as a bracelet or necklace, according to Oprah Daily. "Humans have used stones for healing and energetic purposes for thousands of years," says Keveney Avila, a certified practitioner in energy mastery and author. Heather Askinosie, co-founder of Energy Muse also explained to Oprah Daily the power that crystals have. "Crystals emit positive, uplifting, energizing, and calming vibrations that help you achieve a more peaceful mind and a revitalized physical state of being," she shared.

According to Gemstone Well, black tourmaline is a stone that can clear a home's energy and can bring a lightened mood and protection to a house. "Protection is imperative and black tourmaline is a go-to stone for protection in all forms. It especially kills low vibrational energy surrounding you and within your energetic body, it's the hater-blocker of the mineral world!" says Amber the Alchemist's Amber Finney in an interview with Vogue.

Keep reading to see where you should place black tourmaline in your home to get the most out of its protection capabilities, making it a more inviting place.

Place black tourmaline at the front door

Black tourmaline can make positive changes within your home if placed at your front door, as this is where you welcome guests. It can hold a lot of energy and is often an important part of a space's feng shui. "The entryway sets the tone and mood for your experience every time you come home," explains Heather Askinosie to Better Homes & Gardens. "To make this an area that supports a calm, peaceful, and relaxing environment, it's important to first take inventory of your space. After you clean the slate, you can use crystals and a few other techniques to make the entryway a place where you can take a breath and leave the outside world behind."

The outlet also notes that black tourmaline is an essential crystal to keep negative energy from entering a home. They explain that the crystal is used for protection by placing two on each side of your door on the outside of your home. Better Homes & Gardens says that you can put the black tourmaline inside a potted plant if you want to conceal the crystals. The Spruce also notes that black tourmaline is especially powerful for empaths to block other people's negative energies.
