The Difference Between an Amulet and a Talisman

This is just a quicky. I’ve actually been sick for the last week and am now a wee bit behind on the blogs so I wanted to get this one out really quick.

An Amulet is used for protection from danger, whether physical, emotional, spiritual or mental. If you wear a black tourmaline stone around your neck for protection, that is an amulet. Another example of a protection amulet is the Hamsa hand pictured here.

A Talisman is used to draw something to you. You can use a talisman for good luck (like a four leaf clover) or love (like a rose quartz crystal). These can be home made out of flowers, twigs, herbs, crystals, etc. or they can be just single items.
