Crystals for Stress & Relaxation

Crystals for Stress & Relaxation


Lithium Minerals


Crystals and minerals with trace amounts of lithium in their elemental makeup have a deeply relaxing, tranquil energy.

The minerals listed below all contain trace amounts of lithium and so the effects are felt on a subtle, energetic level, and are safe to wear and hold and touch the skin.

[ Lithium is used in mental health medications for its tranquilizing and mood stabilizing effects. *See disclaimer below. ]

In this article I focus on Lithium containing minerals and their relaxing energy that I have personally experienced. I find these crystals help with easing anxiousness, relieving stress, tension and balancing mood. There are many minerals that aren’t Lithium that can also help to calm feelings of stress and nervous tension. I list some of my favourites at the end of this article.

Work with Lithium containing crystals to help with emotional distress, balancing mood, relaxing an overworked mind and body, evoking feelings of bliss, inner peace and calm.

Hold, carry or wear these crystals to help release all of the ruminating thoughts, emotions and energies we pick up throughout the day.

Hold one or more of these crystals to your heart centre, to ease tension and calm the emotional body and nervous system.

Lithium containing minerals can also help with restless sleep, insomnia and sleep disturbances. Keep these crystals by your bed, or under your pillow to ease into a peaceful, restful deep sleep.
