5 incredible anxiety crystals you need now!
Why anxiety crystals?
Now I’m aware if you’ve never used an anxiety crystal, or any form of crystals for that matter. You might be more inclined to call bullshit when I discuss their healing properties. I would too. If I hadn’t been introduced to them from such a young age and been studying / practicing with them for over 20 years.
But I do live with someone who doesn’t practice crystal healing and just thinks my work contributes to my quirkiness. And that is totally ok.
However if you are someone who believes, practices and studies all things crystals, then these are 5 anxiety crystals you need to have. You see, crystal work is a lot more spiritual, and requires you to connect with your aura, be in tune with your energies, and work regularly with your crystals. Not just give up after one session.
As the more you work with your crystals, the more powerful, charged and in tune to you they become.
So how can these Crystals help my mental health?
As I mentioned, using healing stones and crystals are a more spiritual way of healing. Therefore they work hard to restore your inner peace, and bring more calming qualities to your life. They will NOT solve your anxiety, as if they did, I’d be a millionaire right now, and not still struggling with my mental health for nearly 30 years.
But they do protect you from negative energies, help you become more self aware, and allow you to practice tranquility that you may not usually do.
Something that is incredibly important to note is that not ALL crystals will work for you. And that’s ok, it doesn’t mean anything is wrong with you, it just means your energies aren’t compatible. With this in mind it is really important for you to know about what it is you would like to gain from the different stones and go from there.
You also need to (as much as possible) pick the crystals for yourself, as then you will know which ones you’re drawn to. Don’t get one because a friend says it works for them or you read me saying I like it. It’s your body, your mental health, your mind and so YOUR anxiety crystal.
So let’s get to it, below is a list of 5 crystals that are known to help improve mental health.
A beautiful crystal, and one that is a defo when it comes to adding to your collection of anxiety crystals when travelling. It’s as it states in the title a shiny black crystal, and is connected to the root Chakra.
Now Black tourmaline has a fair few ways in which it can help your anxiety. It’s most common known use is for it’s stress relief ability. And to help protect you and your home from negative people and energies.

This healing crystal is an anxiety crystal I have always naturally felt drawn to. I find this quartz smokey hue incredibly calming. And recently have begun to work with it alot more. Smoky quartz is connected and helps with the Solar Plexus Chakra.
One element that may heighten my anxiety is when I am unable to make a decision. If I feel lost in what I’m doing or unsure of what to do next. Smoky Quartz is great for helping with clarification in such situations.
One of my favourite properties of this crystal is that it is a very powerful crystal and at the same time is very gentle to those it works with.

I’m going to be honest, this crystal is relatively new to me. And in all honesty I cannot believe I’ve only in recent years encountered it. Renowned for helping with anxiety and depression, this stone is quite the all star of anxiety crystals. In my opinion.
It can be found in a variety of colours, though it’s most common ones are purpley – grey and pink. It’s name comes from the greek for Scale and this is due to its scaly appearance. This babe is connected with your heart chakra.
Leipdolite is used to bring stress relief, bringing balance to our emotions during anxious times. This crystal should be used when we begin to feel emotionally overwhelmed (which let’s face it can be triggered by the slightest thing). Or when we are being subjected to excessive worrying (now this one is my speciality, I’ve been known to worry about having nothing to worry about….)
How to use it:
Having a leipdolite necklace is a lovely way to harness this crystal’s powerful energies, as then it is close to the heart when it needs soothing. You can also keep it close to your bed, to echo nurturing properties and energy when you are sleeping.

This stunning pink rose coloured crystal is more commonly known regarding its ability to guide the person working with it, on matters with the heart, which makes sense as it is also connected with the heart chakra.. However this pink beauty can really support you through difficult and anxious times..
When it comes to your mental health Rose quartz is considered a great anxiety crystal for when you are experiencing panic attacks. This is because it works to release any negative energy you are coming into contact with and instead replaces them with comforting and caring vibrations.
This healing crystal is considered and used by most due to it being an emotional healer. Which is incredibly helpful with anxiety as it can bring emotional balance to you.
How to use:

Aren’t they just amazing?!
Working with crystals doesn’t have to be complex. No matter how others may portray it. It’s important for you to grasp the basics, and not over complicate this beautiful healing work. Just because others do.
Find the crystals that work for you, and use them daily to guide you with different emotions, situations and experiences. Get to know them, and them you. It’s a rapport you need to build. This will ensure you get the best out of your journey and work.
As I’ve mentioned throughout this guide crystals have lots of different properties, qualities and energies. This includes anxiety crystals, so please use the ones you feel most connected to.
This is important! Once you buy your crystals you need to cleanse them, as they will contain the energies of others who have handled them.
Here are to super simple ways to do this:
Popping them in a bowl, lighting incense / sage and surrounding then crystal with the smoke. Whilst doing this you can repeat
‘Please be Clean’
‘Please be cleansed’
Or whatever it is that feels best for you.
This is absollutley amazing, as you get different types of sage and an Abalone Shell to cleanse your crystals in. This is what I use! Get yours NOW!
You can also run them under water repeating the same chant. But please research if your crystal is compatible with water. For instance, selenite will disintegrate in water.
The easiest and most effective way to charge your crystals is by placing them in a bowl during a full moon and allowing them to soak up all of the moon’s energies.
Like I said, crystal work doesn’t have to be complicated.
Now energy these absolute beauties!
