Desert Rose

The Desert Rose is sometimes called the Sand Rose, Selenite Rose or Gypsum Rose. It is a form of gypsum that, when sand particles become embedded in it, forms rosette-like concretions. They are found in arid, desert regions, hence their name. (The properties of Selenite also apply)

Desert Roses are said to contain a spirit guardian, and each one is different. Because of this, they are useful as protective talismans and can increase your own self-confidence and self-worth. Those who are timid or shy, but have latent talents, can benefit from a Desert Rose. This is especially true for children/teens.

Use Desert Rose to increase creativity as well as psychic abilities. If you suffer from phobias, especially claustrophobia, keep a Desert Rose handy for its calming effects. It can help one to deal with grief and to let go of those things/emotions that have been keeping you from living your best life.

Physically, Desert Rose can help with travel sickness, viral infections, nausea and disorders associated with the prostate.
