History of small Christmas trees
I love Christmas and especially the smell of a fresh pine tree in my living room.
(Although I’m not so keen on the dropping needles.)
But did you know that the tradition of bringing in a tree dates back to ancient Egypt and Rome?
Modern day use of Christmas trees is dated to a Germanic tradition.

Care for your small Christmas trees
To optimise the energy from your crystals, follow these simple steps:
- Crystals need to be kept clean and energised to enable them to work.
- Make sure you dust your trees on a regular basis.
- If the crystal is placed in such a way that it can’t see the moon, put it on a windowsill at full moon.
- This will re-energise the crystal properties of the crystal.
