Crystals for Stress Relief
Stress is something that many of us experience at some point in life or another, and did you know that crystals and gemstones have been used to ease anxiety for thousands of years? When we think of relieving stress, we think of clearing the mind, relaxing the body, and grounding the spirit in order to feel held, safe and at ease in the present moment; when you’re looking for crystals to relieve stress, it’s best to seek out grounding stones that are either black, red or brown, as well as stones that help clear the mind such as ones that are purple or blue.
