This hematite is polished oxide of iron. It is said to have a positive effect on the bloodstream and increase resistance to stress! It creates balance (root chakra), it grounds you and keeps negativity away from your life. It can also prevent negative energies from touching you, a good thing if you have a tenancy to draw attention to negative spirits or energies (like me)! Make sure to cleanse them frequently if you wear it on a daily basis in order for its energy to constantly be effective.
The left hand is the best hand to wear your hematite ring. When you do so, your higher chakras will be empowered. Hematite ring on the left hand also gives you intuitions about the future. The rings can affect men and women differently... men helps with calming bad tempers, courage and attracting success. Women helps with psychic attraction, grounding stress and confidence. Please note that if you do not identify with cis-male/female genders, please use this as a guideline to how they can work for you. :)
Cleansing your hematite ring, to be done before you wear it and after. The negative vibration on the stone needs to be removed in order to continue working for you. Too much negative energy and the ring will break (It's happened to me three times!!!)
- Take the hematite ring and place it in your left hand
- Use a clear quartz or selenite (or any other cleansing crystal you have) in your right hand.
- Hover your crystal over the left hand three times in clockwise motion
Great for both men and women, it is available in an assortment of sizes. Please ensure you've selected the correct sizing for your finger. Due to the magnetic properties in these rings, please do not wear these if you have a pace-maker, as it could be disruptive.
Ethically Sourced: It was very important in the crystal and gemstone sourcing that it was purchased only from mining suppliers that had the correct certificates that established their operations as safe and environmentally sound. My wholesaler is adamant on ensuring the crystals are fair-trade, where income is being used to support a diverse group of small manufactures and families. Most of the semi-precious stones and crystals come from family owned mines that are passed down from generations (like a family farm here in Canada).
I understand it can be difficult to feel a stone's energy when shopping online. When selecting stones for your order, I personally select the ring(s) with intention for you based on the stock available.
Disclaimer: While using your gems/crystals in practice, please note that Hermit's Path does not guarantee any stone to have any physical or mental health impact. I do not make any claims that it will help. Remember, this is a personal practice... connecting with the energy is not a substitute for traditional medicine where it may be needed. :)
