Crystal Healing Bracelets or Healing Gemstone Bracelets
Crystal healing bracelets or healing gemstone bracelets are a general concept of healing bracelet made of gemstones or crystals. These bracelets are mainly beaded bracelets with healing stones strung on a draw string, a gold chain or a silver string. The design is varied.
One can have a bracelet with all same crystals, multiple different gemstones or only a single crystal bracelet. And the crystal healing power is naturally brought by those stones, as is a way to boost the energy of the wearer or prevent bad energy, release blocked energy, and transform a body's aura.
Chakra Healing Bracelets
Chakra healing bracelets are derived from Chakra system which originated in India. These kind of healing bracelets are always colorful in beads selection like a rainbow, since different chakra has its own color and meaning. Violet for crown chakra, Indigo for third eye chakra, blue for throat chakra, green for heart chakra, yellow for solar plexus chakra, orange for sacral chakra, and red for root chakra. A chakra healing bracelet should contain all of these color elements.

Copper Healing Bracelets
For those iron or zinc deficient or experiencing anemic, a copper healing bracelet is quite beneficial for their condition. Pure copper bracelets can deliver micro-Ions of zinc and iron and other minerals, which are essential for the health of our human body. Just because copper bracelets are beneficial doesn’t mean they are suitable for all kinds of people.
Nevertheless, be aware that there are also side effects of wearing copper bracelet all the time. That may possibly include skin irritation and discoloration, mineral imbalance and metal toxicity. Also, long time exposure to copper dust can displease your nose, mouth, and eyes, which may cause you headaches, dizziness, and nausea.

The magnetic healing bracelet is one of healing products in magnetic therapy - an alternative medicine practice to make use of magnetic fields for healing. But what are the benefits of wearing a magnetic bracelet? The basic idea behind this is that the magnet can attract iron element in your blood, and this in turn boosts your circulation.
It is preferred that you wear these bracelets without any other material getting in the way. Especially, do not wear magnetic healing bracelet with your automatic watch or electronic wrist bands.

How to Cleanse and Charge Healing Bracelets
1. Sunlight & Water
Hold the healing bracelet in your hand, pour it with cold water, or rinse it under the tap. Then put them in the sun (preferably outdoors) and let the sun shine on it for at least thirty minutes. Then wipe their surface with a clean cotton cloth.
Sometimes, if conditions permit, we can also use sea water, stream water or lake water to complete this work. Just be careful and hold tight to avoid the healing bracelet from running along the water.
2. Crystal Cluster
When using the crystal cluster method, we must first prepare four single-pointed quartz crystals, usually white crystals are top option. The tips of the four white crystals should be placed toward the clusters, corresponding to the four directions of the south, east, north, and west, looking like a cross.
Then place the healing bracelet we need to be charged on the clusters, and the energy will automatically start working in them. We can see the crystal cluster as a "home" of the healing bracelet, and the bracelet can be placed on the crystal cluster for as long as you don’t wear them.
3. Sea Salt
When our healing bracelet’s energy is consumed excessively or is polluted, we'd better use the sea salt method to purify it. Take a clean glass or crystal bowl, put sea salt and the healing bracelet in it, and bury the healing bracelet with sea salt. After three days, the crystals can be taken out, washed with cold water, and then placed in the sun to air dry.
Salt can reconcile the negative energy, suck out the unclean ingredients, and restore the harmony and balance of the crystal. So it is best not to reuse the same batch of sea salt.
