  • I’ve always found healing stones to be so interesting. I’ve never owned one but I love learning about the different stones and their properties!

  • So interesting: thyroid, respiratory system, teeth, vocal chords — I believe I have a thyroid condition, struggled with asthma, have beautiful (but weak teeth) and took voice lessons but struggle because of the crazy tension I carry in my throat. Never once thought about caring for my chakra. So excited to try some of this!

  • Wooow. I have always heard about healing stones till you threw more light on it and made me understand and know more.

  • I’ve never tried healing stones. I guess I’m not a believer, but I would try them to see if they work for me.

  • This was very interesting. Was wondering how this would work or help with someone who has had throat cancer. Been through radiation treatments.
