The 37-year-old reality star - who suffered a terrifying experience when she was tied up and robbed of millions of dollars worth of jewellery from her Paris apartment in October 2016 - didn't really "get" the New Age belief that the rocks have healing properties until recently but she has found them to be helpful.

She said: "I kind of got into healing crystals more recently. The last year, when I took about a year off after my whole Paris incident, everyone would come over and bring me healing crystals and I didn't really get it at first.

"And then I really started to research it and Google it and a friend of mine took me down to this crystal warehouse in Culver City and it was just crystals everywhere and they explained what everything meant to me and it just clicked then for me."

And the 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star admitted the crystals had inspired her new fragrance, Crystal Gardenia, along with her late father Robert Karashian's favourite scent.

She told 'Extra' presenter Mark Wright: "I wanted a bottle that... just looks and feels like a healing crystal, something that would be calming and have good energy for you...

"My dad's favourite flower was gardenia so he would always have it... I just remember coming home from school and seeing this dish that he had right when you walked in and there was always gardenia flowers just floating in it and I loved when he had those."

Meanwhile, Kim and her husband Kanye West - who have kids North, four, and Saint, 23 months, together - are preparing for the arrival of their third child via a surrogate and the blonde beauty admitted she hasn't yet let it sink in how much harder it will be to juggle a larger brood.

She said: "I'm really excited for and scared for a new baby. I have half the people freaking me out saying how hard three is.

"I think you're not thinking about it as much, especially when you're in my situation because I'm not carrying the baby, so I think it's just gonna hit me and I'm think I'm gonna freak the f**k out and be like, 'Aaahhh, three kids,' you know?"
