Hi Crystal Hottie!
I’ve got another “Crystal Healer Interview” today! Yes, more fresh, new & inspiring crystal perspectives from others that are living & breathing this crystal path.
And just in case you’re not familiar with what exactly is goin’ down…these Crystal Healer Interviews allow me to introduce you to crystal healing from another perspective (other than my own). So we’ve got a few Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healers & Advanced Crystal Masters who are so generously sharing their stories with us.
Well, I’m excited to introduce Certified Crystal Healer Jodi Cohen!
Jodi shares with us her journey with essential oils and crystals bringing layers of healing energy to her family & beyond.
And Here’s Jodi…
What brought you to the world of crystal healing?
I have always loved rocks. I had a rock collection as a kid, including crystals that I carried with me into adulthood.
After I started working with plant energies through essential oils, I started getting intuitive messages to work with other earth elements like crystals. I mentioned this to my friend and mentor Natalie Lussier and she immediately recommended Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy. I loved Hibiscus Moon right away and signed up for all her classes to learn more.
Everything Hibiscus Moon taught completely resonated with my intuition.
I have long believed that minerals and plants share a similar innate intelligence, a kind of blueprint that can help us realign and balance the human mind, body, and spirit and I really loved the way Hibiscus articulated that in a such a clear way.
What crystal has the biggest effect on you?
Amethyst – purple has always been my favorite color and I feel like amethyst helps guide my intuition, ground and center me. I use it the most in my healing work, both on others and on myself. I have a beautiful large amethyst that I keep in my bedroom and often hold during meditation.
I actually use the amethyst when I meditate. I place it next to me or hold it near my heart with the intention that it helps to clear my intuitive channel and open my heart to receiving whatever information is most important for me to understand.
I also get a lot of intuitive downloads in the shower and often turn off the lights, light a candle and place the amethyst next to it. Our shower is glass and I can perfectly see the illumination of the candle and the crystal – I focus on them while I hold a question in mind and almost instantly the question is answered.
What do others in your life think about the path you are on?
They are super supportive and curious.
I am blessed with open minded friends and family members. They are also very curious and interested in the new information that I learn and synthesize. My 12-year-old daughter has become quite adept at using a pendulum and proudly shares her knowledge with her friends and teachers, opening minds and hearts in her wake.
What do you think made the biggest difference to you on this path?
Validation and Results.
I love when I stumble upon a book or program (like HMCA) that completely validates all of my intuitive guidance. Also, my health has improved.
The combination of diet, essential oils and crystals has really helped me improve my family’s health
You cannot argue with results! I also feel like the oils and crystals have helped clients and customers return to balance so their bodies could heal.
How do you navigate being a crystal healer and a mama on a daily basis?
My youngest son and his health issues were the impetuous for me to begin exploring natural health options, so my children have been raised to be very open to and appreciative of crystals.
My son, like so many children on the planet today, is deeply sensitive, highly intuitive and easily affected by the energies of others, including the energies of genetically modified food, pesticides, and mold. This presented as behavioral challenges, including poor focus, impulse control and aggression. Changing his diet and adding essential oils to help with digestion and attention helped a great deal.
I created my own essential oil company called Vibrant Blue Oils with proprietary blends that balance different organ systems. The oils that most help my son are Parasympathetic, Intestinal Mucosa and Anti-Inflammatory. He was doing better, but I knew that more was needed and really believe in layering modalities to amplify the results.
The addition of crystals helped ground him. Placing them around his bed while he was sleeping, proved to be the missing piece of the puzzle. We live in an urban environment and I suspect his little system was still revving and feeding off that energy while he was sleeping. The combination of Hematite and Smokey Quartz which I placed at the foot of the bed was noticeable. He is very drawn to crystals on his own and has selected a large green jade crystal that I have noticed he likes to hold when he is feeling sad.
Do any ridicule you for being interested in crystal healing? If so, how do you handle that?
I have a pretty good gauge of how open people are to hearing about oils and crystals so I don’t really discuss it if I detect resistance. On the other hand, my friends have had a front row seat on my healing journey, so they have witnessed first-hand the benefits derived from crystals and essential oils.
What is the primary way you utilize crystals in your practice?
I use them to ground clients, open and clear chakras. I also use gem elixirs to support different organs. For example, pictured below is my altar which includes a crystal grid that I have been linking to the gem elixirs.
Charging the gem elixirs with the moon cycles…each vial contains charged water with specific crystals selected to enhance different chakra/organ centers. I then layered the sacred geometry/mandala energy of each chakra below the vial and color on top and charged them during the new moon and full moon cycles.
What do you love most about working with crystals?
I love the additional layer of healing that I can offer through crystals and gem elixirs.
In my nutritional practice, I was always impressed by how well trace elements helped to balance and heal. I believe the same energy resonates from the crystals and can be captured in gem elixirs. I feel like gem elixirs are very alive and balancing to the body.
From where do you draw inspiration in your crystal practice?
I wish I could tell you. I get downloads, mostly in the shower or during yoga and suddenly I just know what I am supposed to do!
I also get good and very clear results with the pendulum.

What are your BIG DREAMS now that you’ve graduated?
I want to empower people to take charge of their own health and help them learn to support their health with crystals and essential oils.
I really believe that we are all magnificent beings with unlimited potential and most of us have just forgotten about our amazing intuitive gifts and talents because we are so stuck in the minutia of our daily stressful lives.
I look at it like a dirty windshield which makes it hard to see.
It could be our diet and the consumption of food that triggers an inflammatory response and dims our intuition. It might be external stressors; like work, relationships and children, or it could be negative thought cycles, like recalling traumatic events, or any unresolved fear, anger or grief that keeps our windshield dirty and blocks our access to our own light and power.
I believe that earth medicines, like nutrient dense whole food, organic or wild crafted essential oils and rocks, minerals and crystals, help shift us into balance, cleaning the windshield so that the light can shine in and we can experience our own power.
I don’t claim credit for empowering people. I think I am just helping to guide them to natural tools like crystals and essential oils that connect them to nature and their natural talents and abilities. In other words:
I help them find the natural tools they can then use to clear their windshield so they can wake up to their natural potential and talents.
I am very proud of the essential oil company I have created, Vibrant Blue Oils, as I feel it helps give people some clear guidance. That is one of the things that really resonated for me about Hibiscus Moon and her programs. She gives clear guidance in an area that has not been clear and allowed people to flounder while they were trying to find their way.
I really want to make it as easy, accessible and clear for people to connect to our natural earth medicine, be it food, crystals or essential oils. I think the easier you can make it and the more guidance and hand holding you can provide, the more people are able to bypass their internal excuses and step into their power and light.
Jodi’s Bio: Jodi sells proprietary blends of essential oils designed to balance the body, brain, and emotions. Last year she started getting intuitive downloads about integrating other Earth Medicines, like gems and signed up for the Certified Crystal Healer Course. She has experience working with structured water and loves learning about gems and sacred geometry to incorporate into gem elixirs that can be used in combination with essential oils. Jodi believes that plants and minerals share similar healing energies and the combination of both enhances the synergies. Jodi’s website is vibrantblueoils.com
