Working with calming stones and crystals for stress is a magickal way to help soothe your spirit after a stressful day.
I also find that carrying crystals for stress relief with you when you expect a difficult day can bring comfort.
The same is certainly true for essential oils as well. Although I don’t usually carry wee essential oil bottles around with me 😋
Instead, I prefer to mist the air with an essential oil infused spray as a refreshing way to dissolve stress. Then after I’ve given the air a good couple sprays, I’ll twirl around in the misty spray to soak up all that good mojo.
I highly recommend a delightful misty twirl. Somewhere along the way in the twirl of soothing smells, the stress just starts to melt away, even if only for a moment.
So, if you are feeling stressed, consider befriending some of these calming crystals and essential oils for stress relief.
1. Rose Quartz
Self-judgment often accompanies stress. You might even be feeling stressed because you are judging yourself for being stressed. Let’s be honest this is totally something that happens.
Rose quartz is the perfect crystal companion when you feel this kind of stress ick. It’s soft soothing energies send out self-love vibes.
These loving vibes can be a powerful reminder to give yourself a break instead of being so harsh on yourself.
Lavender is certainly one of the most popularly known flowers for aromatherapy. You can often find little sachets of lavender scattered throughout small boutiques. Then, many dream pillows are filled with lavender buds as well.
It’s clean and soothing scent is a perfect companion for a stressful day.
Here are a few ways to use lavender essential oil for stress relief:
- spritz a lavender spray in the air and the twirl in it
- Light a lavender scented candle
- Have a bath with lavender Epsom salts
- Add some lavender essential oil to a diffuser
Selenite is a simply fabulous crystal to work with when you feel like you are twisted up in a knot. It’s crystal healing properties can cleanse and clear your aura. This is especially handy if you feel like any of those stressors are clinging to you like Ghostbuster’s goop.
If you’ve had a difficult day, take a moment to sit with a selenite crystal when you get home. Then visualise its shining white energies blasting the goop off like a ray of sunshine. Beat that Ghostbuster’s stress goop!
Where would we be without a little sage for smudging? Sage is a very powerful cleansing herb.
It is often used for cleansing as a bundle of dry sage leaves. These are then lit to smoulder and infuse the air with their purifying smoke. Yet, if you live in an appartment like me then building-wide smoke alarms often make smudging with smouldering sage leaves seem like it’s not quite the best idea.
Still, that doesn’t mean you have to give up on a good little sage smudging. Sage essential oil presents a perfect remedy to this conundrum.
To cleanse energy with sage essential oil just add a few drops to an essential oil diffuser or oil warmer. If you have a mist infused with sage essential then a couple sprays of this can also work wonders.
Lighting a candle scented with sage is another good option too! I often find that lighting a candle has a very calming effect in itself.
No matter how you choose to enjoy the cleansing benefits of sage it’s magick is sure to lift and soothe your spirit.
