The root chakra represents our foundation. On the human body, it rests at the base of the spine and gives us the feeling of being grounded.

How to wear and maintain your jewelry?
It is normal for natural gemstones to fade or change color over time due to body oils and other environmental factors. While we strive to use the most durable metals, they can also tarnish and fade over time.
To help them retain their color and shine, please consider the following:
Be careful with chemicals, such as colognes, perfumes, creams, and cleaning products, as they can change, stain, or discolor your jewelry.
Wearing gemstones in water is not recommended.
Some stones will discolor if left in the sun for too long (especially when cleaning and cleaning). Amethyst is an example of one of these stones. It is recommended to stay out of direct sunlight for a long time if you want them to retain their vibrant color.
You can use a soft cloth to polish and clean metals and gemstones. Be careful with commercial products that can damage or scratch your stones.
For wooden parts, you can apply a small amount of coconut oil or sandalwood oil to prevent the beads from drying out due to moisture (sweat, humidity, etc.).
An hour in direct sunlight is more than enough to clean most stones.
We also recommend that you put them under the moon, either in the window or directly outside. A full moon is particularly cleansing and powerful for cleaning stones.
Smudging is a cultural practice in many traditions that is believed to cleanse the area of negative energies. It is the process of burning a dried plant and stoking smoke on an object or area while keeping an intention in your mind. The most commonly used herbs are sage, palo Santo, sweet grass, lavender, copal, and frankincense.
How to wear your jewelry to the fullest
The left side of your body, which is considered the feminine side, deals with your inner self. It is also your most sensitive side. It receives energy from outside your body and helps you make positive “changes” that benefit you internally. When you wear certain gemstones on your left wrist, you can consciously control and alter the stresses of your external environment. Your left side is all about the change you want to make on the inside. To send healing energies through the body, wear the bracelets on the left wrist.
In contrast, your right side, which is also considered the masculine side of your body, is your "doer" or "action" side. When you wear gemstones on your right wrist, the gemstones help your productivity and control the energy you put into your external environment. Your right side is more about how you act in the outside world. To release toxins from the body and align your chakras, wear the bracelets on your right wrist.
To get the best energy benefit from your gemstone jewelry, you just need to find the right balance between your left and right sides (similar to the ancient Chinese concept of yin and yang energy - light vs dark, slow vs fast, soft vs hard, internal vs external, etc.). You can do this by wearing gemstone bracelets on your left and right wrists in specific combinations to help you achieve what you desire better.
Gemstone necklaces and bracelets provide gemstone medicine by transmitting specific electromagnetic impulses from minerals to body parts, emotions, thoughts and dreams that require healing attention. Wear them at times of crisis, during the night while sleeping, or at specific times of the day when symptoms are at their worst to feel relief. Some necklaces are best worn as necklaces around the throat while others work best in long strands. Some minerals will work immediately, others will require longer wearing periods to become fully effective.
To free your necklaces or bracelets from congestion and debris place them on a bed of salt and they will renew themselves. Do not wash them under running water if string was used to make them as they will eventually break. Remember to program your necklaces and bracelets with your intentions and they will happily work on healing and regeneration.
