How Will Angel Wing Help You? 

The Romans used it when dyeing fabric as it was known to stabilize the dye. A large deposit was found at Tolfa near Rome in the fifteenth century.

The natural alum stone can be used as a natural deodorant and it is sold for this purpose.

While it is said to be an extremely safe deodorant for those with allergic conditions, it may not be as safe as it is reported to be to use as a deodorant, due to the high levels of aluminum in it.

The powers of these stones resonate within the heart chakra and have a good energy to keep you emotionally balanced.

Their properties are of value to harmonize your male-female energies, which is helpful as when the yin and yang energies are out of balance this can lead to illness.

So it is beneficial to keep them in balance in order to help you to stay healthy.

Keeping the yin and yang balanced is all about keeping a complimentary vibration that ensures that your life remains stable and harmonious.

My Final Thoughts

In Chinese medicine the yin energy is said to be the female more emotional sensitive energy, bringing the cooling heart based attributes of nurturing and compassion.


The yang energy relates to feeling grounded and to the male yang fire energy. Yang relates to the more logical mental aspect, related to confidently thinking about taking physical action.

It is about impetus and forward movement in life, and those with higher yang often go flat out.

Doing regular meditation, walking on the earth to fully ground yourself, eating a healthy diet and drinking fresh water are all helpful to balance your yin and yang.
