Bloodstone is an excellent blood cleanser and a powerful healer. It is believed to have mystical and magical properties, conferring the ability to banish evil and negativity and to direct spiritual energies. Bloodstone stimulates courage, confidence, and strength when used daily.
Traditionally, Bloodstone was used to staunch blood when wounded in battle and nowadays it is used in the treatment of any ailments concerned with the flow of blood through the body. It can regulate blood pressure, stimulate blood flow and circulation, boost the immune system and detoxify the blood.
It promotes healthy bone marrow, spleen, liver and kidney function and is especially beneficial to women during pregnancy, childbirth, PMS and menopause.
The easiest way for the crystal to influence your body is wearing the gemstone as a piece of jewelry. Alternatively they can be placed in your purse or pocket and used as a touchstone throughout the day. Hold crystals or place them in your lap while meditating. Easiest of all, just lay down with crystals on your body, lined up with the chakra points if possible.
Bloodstone should be cleansed every few days if you are using it for a specific health or spiritual problem to keep it at its maximum potential. You can do this by running the stone under tepid water and drying it in the sun for about an hour.
The more natural the water, the better so spring water or rain water is perfect but tap water will suffice. If the Bloodstone is just for general well-being, cleansing every couple of weeks will suffice.
If you feel the Bloodstone gemstone needs a bit of a deep cleansing then try an earth bath. Dig a hole a few inches into the best natural soil you can find, place your gemstone directly in the soil, leave it for at least a day before retrieving it and cleaning with running water. Just don’t forget where you buried it!
