Crystals for Travel

School holidays are around the corner and soon many will be off on their travels. Setting off  on a journey, whether it's a weekend getaway or a grand expedition, is an opportunity for growth, self-discovery, and new experiences. Alongside your travel essentials, have you ever considered packing some crystals? In this article, we will explore how specific crystals can enhance your travel experiences, offering comfort, protection, and a touch of magic along the way.


When the excitement of traveling collides with the anxiety of the unknown, amethyst emerges as your go to crystal.  Known for its calming energy, it alleviates stress and anxiety, restoring a sense of tranquility. Its gentle vibrations can be particularly beneficial when you find yourself sleeping in a strange bed. Place an amethyst under your pillow to experience its soothing embrace, ensuring a restful night's sleep during your travels.


Imagine gazing out at the vast expanse of the ocean, feeling a sense of peace and serenity wash over you. Aquamarine, with its ethereal blue hue, captures the essence of the sea and brings it into your travel experiences. Sailors have long revered this crystal for its protective and lucky properties when traveling  on water. But beyond its maritime associations, aquamarine offers a cooling and calming energy that can help you stay centered amidst the ebb and flow of your journey. Wear an aquamarine pendant or carry a tumble stone in your pocket to infuse your travels with a touch of the sea's enchantment.

Smoky Quartz

As you set out on your travels, it's essential to stay rooted in the present moment, fully embracing the experiences that come your way. Smoky quartz, an often underestimated crystal, is a powerful grounding and protective stone. It shields negative energies while helping you connect with the earth's stabilizing forces allowing you to remain in the present for all the new experiences in front of you.

Smoky quartz also has a unique ability to absorb aches and pains, making it an ideal travel stone for those long hours spent in cars, planes etc. Keep a smoky quartz crystal in your bag or wear it as a pendant to remain grounded and protected throughout your journey.


In the midst of exciting travel adventures, maintaining focus and clarity can be essential. Citrine, with its vibrant yellow hue, is renowned for its ability to enhance energy, promote happiness, and foster a strong sense of focus. This radiant crystal can be a helpful companion to prevent you from feeling overwhelmed or getting lost during your explorations. 

Additionally, citrine's properties extend to digestive issues and motion sickness, making it an excellent ally for those susceptible to such discomforts. Consider wearing a citrine pendant or carrying a tumbled citrine thumb stone in your pocket to infuse your travels with its sunny vibrations.
