The companies and crafters selling these products claim they help to create healing, energizing, or otherwise beneficial “energy”. There is nothing to support these claims and all benefits so far have been found to be placebos. Many people claim to feel better for wearing them, which is fine. Ultimately, if a placebo makes you feel better, then use it. Comfort and reassurance is important. But be aware that is what you are buying.
None, so long as you don’t swap real medicine for a charm.
Countless independent sellers and small brands on etsy.
