Essential Oils & Crystals: Pyrite
Pyrite is thought to be a stone of protection and peace, working to shield our spirits from negativity and help us find the inner strength to reach our true potential. It has been found to release our minds from negative thought patterns and encourage feelings of confidence and self-trust to help us live authentically without shame or fear. Pyrite is believed to keep us feeling strong and in control of our destiny by giving a boost to cognitive processes and stoking our inner fire to motivate us to take action. It is known to inspire feelings of creativity and freedom while ensuring the feeling of emotional safety we need to dive into our hobbies and projects joyfully. Pyrite may help to rekindle the drive and passion we lost to self-doubt and feelings of darkness, bringing us back into the light.
Essential oils, like crystals, have long been used to support the health and wellness of our minds, bodies, and spirits. Pairing crystals with essential oils that complement their beneficial properties can help to amplify the effects of both elements.

Inspired Awakening Shower Steamers
- Witch Hazel Extract in a Misting Spray Bottle
- Hard Plastic or Metal Molds
- 1 cup of Citric Acid
- 2 cups of Baking Soda
- 15 drops of Grapefruit Essential Oil
- 5 drops of Spearmint Essential Oil
- 5 drops of Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well using your hands. Spritz a small amount of witch hazel onto the top of the powder mixture and stir it in. Repeat this process until the mixture packs together easily with a texture similar to wet sand. Scoop the mixture into each mold one at a time and pack them down tightly. Allow them to dry for at least 24 hours. To use, take 1 shower steamer into the shower and wet it under the stream of water. Place the steamer at the far end of the bath/shower stall away from the direct flow of water to help it last longer. Arrange a few pyrite crystals around the shower to enhance the creative and energized atmosphere.
