Top Crystal Picks for Weight Loss

by Hibiscus Moon on March 21, 2012 · 42 comments

I’m often asked about what crystals can help us to lose weight & how to use them.

First, let me just say that just like with any other weight loss remedy, you cannot depend on the crystals alone. They should be used as a tool & support to help give the other magnificent things you’re doing a wonderful boost…like watching what we eat & getting proper exercise.

Having said that, I used to always recommend my fav high-energy energy stones like carnelian & citrine. THEY ARE THE BOMB at boosting energy, BUT they can boost appetite as well in some people! Oooopsie! So, a number of years ago I switched up my weight loss crystal support system & the data is in…these picks work wonders.


I now like to recommend this POWERFUL combo:

  1. apatite (how ironic is that name?!)
  2. sunstone
  3. sodalite

Apatite & sunstone are both SUPREME for suppressing hunger & rrrrrrrevving up your metabolism! Sodalite will simply eeeeease the whole process by improving your own cellular function & helping you to  regulate your water retention.

These 3 babies used together make the ultimate weight loss combo, but they can also be used individually on their own.


As for how to use them, there are several ways. Here are just a few:

  • You can create a gem elixir minus the sodalite due to aluminum content (I’m brewing up a big ole’ eKit on how to do this…to be released soon)
  • Carry them in a mojo bag
  • Wear them as jewelry
  • Put some stones in your pillow case at night
  • Meditate with some nice specimens
  • Create a crystal grid using these stones
  • To learn more about how to create and use crystal tools such as these, you may be interested in my Instant Download Class; Crystal Healer Toolkit.

I know many of you out there have had great successes with using crystals for weight loss. Please share what stones & methods you’ve used. We can ALL learn & benefit when we share with all!♥

Oodles of Crystal Blessings!!

I love the idea of a Crystal Grid! you know me! :D
Question, does it have to be yellow apatite, or can it be any?


Stella Seaspirit March 22, 2012 at 9:31 am

I think your pickings are spot on ~ I just wanted to add that if the weight gain is “padding” related to emotional grief that rose quartz is superb to add to the mix for self-love and processing those emotions in order to release the weight.


MaryElizabeth June 6, 2013 at 10:44 am

Just going through some emails that were hiding away in a folder, that I never got to. Great idea Stella, thanks for sharing it!! There is such a huge correlation between “grief” and weight issues, at both ends of the spectrum.

You can also make an elixir by putting your gemstones in a small glass bowl, and setting that inside a larger bowl with water in it. The energy will transfer without direct contact between the gemstones and the water. I have used this method successfully to make an elixir from the gemstones in a necklace that is strung with silk thread. I did not want to get the necklace wet. I learned this technique from the proprietor of a very good crystal shop.


Janice August 5, 2014 at 8:38 am

Thank you, Marie! Excellent idea!!


Marie June 9, 2013 at 2:50 pm

And thank you for this great info on weight loss crystals!


Christina June 13, 2013 at 11:59 pm

Hello! I was wondering if there is a crystal that can help me with a choking sensation/lump sensation in my throat that makes swallowing and talking very uncomfortable? And, if yes, how would I use it please? Thank you for any ideas on this!! :)


Theresa June 17, 2013 at 5:02 pm


Please have that checked out. I had the same sensations and found out my thyroid was swollen. I, unfortunately have to take meds for it, (for now) but it also allowed me to know the area that I should focus my healing on.


Christina June 17, 2013 at 5:47 pm

Thanks Theresa. I do have Hashimoto’s and have ultrasounds done to monitor the nodules/goiter. However, my endo does not think the swallowing issue is due to the thyroid. Thank you for your post.


Stephanie June 29, 2013 at 10:46 am

I had a similar experience and I found that it was a stress response. I didn’t feel stressed in the traditional sense, but I felt very “pent up” and new things were going on in my life. It was interesting, once I concluded that was what was causing it, it started to subside and went away.


Alice September 3, 2013 at 9:16 am

A “lump in the throat” feeling can also be caused by a magnesium deficiency, which doesn’t show up on regular blood tests. You have to be tested specifically for that. Some medicines, like Prilosec, can cause a magnesium deficiency, too. Check with your doctor.


Janice August 5, 2014 at 8:42 am

I wear Turquoise necklaces for throat issues. Also, it sounds like a Throat Chakra Balancing Treatment would be helpful!


Deena February 17, 2014 at 7:17 pm

I have an issue with swallowing as well and have for many years. One thing I found that has really worked…. and it surprised me…. I bought a Lapis Lazuli necklace and I big piece of watermelon tourmaline which I wire wrapped in sterling and made a pendant to wear as well. I also found out that my 5th Chakra is blocked…. now that I am wearing these stones around my neck… no more swallowing problems!


Skye June 14, 2013 at 12:39 am

Christina, have you been checked for a haital hernia? Sounds a lot like that, because I have similar issues, and was diagnosed with it.


Anonymous June 14, 2013 at 10:40 am

Hi Skye,

Thank you for replying. Can I ask you how you were diagnosed, did you treat it and how, and is the choking sensation in the throat diminished? If you would rather email me: Thank you for any help with this. It’s been constant for over 2 years and has really negatively affected all aspects of my life. I need to heal and move on!! :) Thank you!!


Skye June 17, 2013 at 6:13 pm

Hi there, no problem, I will email you.


Janice August 5, 2014 at 8:46 am

Hello! I would recommend what has worked best for me for all throat issues… Turquoise necklaces and Throat Chakra Balancing Treatments!


Donna June 15, 2013 at 4:56 pm

Hello and thank you for the good information about setting up a crystal grid and other ways to use our supportive crystals for help where needed. Any ideas on what grid you might suggest to use for ‘losing weight’? Yes I will add the rose quartz and I am aware that there is grief I’ve not processed on deeper levels and hope that releasing some of that will release some of the wt.
Thank you everyone and especially Hibiscus Moon for your help.
p.s. I bought your book Crystal Grids and it’s great! also, how much Silica do you take? 1 Tablespoon?


Christina July 2, 2013 at 3:55 pm

Hi Skye

Just wondering if you ever had a chance to email me because if so I did not receive it? Thank you for any help with this


Brenda Johnson September 2, 2013 at 9:16 pm

I TRY to pin to my pinterest page… but your posts won’t post!! It is frustrating! It shows your “signature”… and then Pinterest boots it out saying the Photo is too small!


Thanks for ANY help in doing this!


Laurene Cormier September 2, 2013 at 9:51 pm

This may sound like a stupid question,but where do I purchase crystals? I like in Windsor Vt. Do you know of any place in this area? If not how do I go about finding where I can get some? I would appreciate any information you could give me.~~thank you~~~love~peace and harmony~~ Laurene


Kim September 6, 2013 at 11:23 am

You can purchase them online if you don’t have any shops nearby. You can look for rock shops, lapidary shops in your area to start. Hope this helps.


Annamarie September 3, 2013 at 12:28 am


Have you been checked for acid reflux? I use to have that feeling at it was horrible. Turns out I had acid reflux? Maybe try one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water and see if it helps. Also, I only drink alkaline water now and never have that problem anymore. Just a thought.


Christina September 3, 2013 at 10:06 am


Yes, I have been checked out for that. But thank you for thinking of me. It MAY be goiter-related, not sure. I think I need a crystal to heal my thyroid!!!! :)
Have a blessed day everyone!


Marjorie February 28, 2014 at 7:27 am

Annamarie. I have had choking sensations for years. Also have the thyroid, Hashimoto’s etc which was not the cause. I was recently diagnosed with Sleep Apnea and the tests overnight showed that my throat was closing up and they believe this is what causes the choking episodes. Just a thought.


Emma barlow February 27, 2014 at 10:09 am

kelly February 27, 2014 at 10:12 am

Kate May 19, 2014 at 7:24 am

Emma Barlow, do you sell the Eliminator bracelet?


kelly February 27, 2014 at 10:11 am

Hiya! Does it have to be the green apatite? Will blue do the trick? :)


Donna February 27, 2014 at 10:56 am

Emma how would i be able to purchase this bracelet?


Celeste February 27, 2014 at 7:31 pm

I love it!
Put your A S S (apatite, sunstone & sodalite) in a bag, wear it & lose weight.
I know, I know…not quite that simple…but silly, and I couldn’t resist =D


Celeste February 27, 2014 at 7:33 pm

I absolutely love your site Hibiscus Moon! You make learning about crystals, and using them to better our lives, soo much fun!!!


Liz April 20, 2014 at 7:24 pm

Regarding Christina’s post… If I may… I have had that sensation before, and if I go to bed at night an make myself have a really good heartfelt CRY… presto… problem gone :)


Fannie Fink May 23, 2014 at 1:34 pm

Does it matter what color the Apatite is?? I ask because I have a lemon yellow Apatite with a hint of green


trangler.Com July 21, 2014 at 6:01 pm
