What is it good for?

It's not just for protection, though. A hematite stone can also provide you with confidence and grounding. Given that it is connected to the root chakra, it can serve as a component of your foundations and provide stability in your daily life.
Hematite has been used in relation to the blood and our circulatory system because of its relationship to iron and the hefty composition within the stone. It is used by people to increase circulation, lower blood pressure, dissolve clots, and even slow painful periods.
Hematite is utilized to strengthen your resolve and give you more courage and willpower, which is more on the metaphysical side. You can break bad behaviors like being people pleaser or overall timidness.
So how do I use it?
The best method of utilizing hematite is to have direct contact with your skin. You can wear it as jewelry as a necklace, ring or bracelet. This allows you to get the strength of the stone without any distractions. If you're not a fan of jewelry you can keep a stone on your person such as in your bra or sock.
Hematite is a fantastic stone to utilize in your home's feng shui to achieve balance. It will be able to soak up negative energies and keep them away from you if you put it on an altar in the space where you study or work.
