At any given time in our household, there could be three separate candles burning in different rooms and a sage stick wafting about somewhere. Both my roommate and I have a sick obsession with burning candles to create a mood, whether we’re working from home, getting ready for a date /date night, having friends over or trying to convince ourselves we each have our lives together, we love a good candle burn. (How our rental hasn’t burned down is beyond me.)

Our latest obsession is crystal-infused candles. I was hunting for the perfect housewarming gift for my witchy friend MG and I stumbled upon crystal infused candles. They’re your usual fruity, floral, woodsy, and spicy scents, but they’re infused with crystals like rose quartz, clear quartz, citrine and amethyst for an added vibe.

While burning, each candle is said to create or bring in different energies. Rose quartz opens your heart to love, self-love, friendship, deep inner healing and feelings of peace. Citrine quartz brings prosperity and fortune when it comes to creativity and wealth. Amethyst is incredibly protective, healing and purifying. Clear Quartz is all about clarity, light, reflection, balance and amplification. So depending on what vibe you’d like to create in your home, you can choose your fighter (read: crystal) accordingly.

Ahead, we’ve rounded up some of the crystal infused candles you can buy online and have delivered straight to your door.
