One of the issues that crystals are often used to help with are stress and anxiety. In this blog I will talk about which crystals are best for this and also suggest some other ways that could help with anxiety.
Why do Crystals Help with Anxiety?
Crystals help with anxiety for a number of reasons. One because they come from the earth. They have natural vibrations relating to the earth and nature. But also, these vibrations work on the different chakras or energy centres within the body.
There are a number of areas that could be affected by stress by choosing crystals for these chakras. Most people can come up with a positive result using crystals.
Base or Root Chakra
An imbalance in the base or root chakra, as it’s also known is often where stress can manifest itself or even be the start of cause of stress and anxiety.
Use of crystals for this chakra help the individual using them feel more grounded and connected to day to day and hence help reduce stress and anxiety.
Crystals that are good for this chakra include black or red crystals. Haematite is particularly good for grounding along with black tourmaline, black obsidian and red jasper.
The Heart Chakra
The heart chakra is also another chakra that can be affected by anxiety. It’s linked with self-love, but also balance and has the same number of chakras above as below so it can seen as the centre of everything.
You can get imbalances in corresponding chakras e.g., an imbalance in the root chakra is often shows an imbalance in the crown chakra.
Crystals for the heart chakra work on love. Not necessarily romantic love but also self love and general well being so rose quartz is a good start for this. It’s almost like giving yourself a hug with a crystal.
Crystals that work on this chakra are quite gentle pink or green stones such as aventurine and fluorite.

Ways to Use Crystals for Anxiety
Crystals can be used in a number of ways. Keep one in your pocket or about your person particularly what are called worry /thumb stones which have got a nice little dent in them. Put your pocket and periodically just fiddle with it and you will get the benefits from it both being near you and from you having something to distract yourself.
Other Ways to Manage Anxiety and Stress
I hope you’ve found this blog useful. As I said there is further information on my Facebook group and I will in the near future be running master classes to look in more depth at some of these areas.
