As someone who struggles with stress and anxiety, I've found that using crystals are a great way to relieve it. It's like carrying around a pocket-sized masseuse wherever you go! On top of that, they're beautiful on their own as well as in jewelry. Here are my top five healing crystals for reducing stress and promoting relaxation:
Amethyst is a purple variety of quartz that comes in many colors. It can be used to reduce stress and promote relaxation, as well as clarity and focus. Amethyst can also be used for meditation, healing and protection. Amethyst is often used for love and romance.
Amethyst has been said to increase memory retention, improve mental clarity, alleviate depression and anxiety symptoms by reducing stress hormones like cortisol (the "fight or flight" hormone). It's also thought that amethyst helps with insomnia by calming the mind so you can fall asleep faster when ready; however there isn't any scientific evidence behind this claim yet!
Rose Quartz is a stone of unconditional love and the most nurturing and calming of all crystals. It can help you to let go of anger and resentment, as well as ease emotional wounds from the past. Rose Quartz is often used in crystal healing to promote feelings of peace, romance, compassion and self-love.
Rose Quartz works in harmony with all chakras but it is especially helpful for balancing the heart chakra (4th) which controls our ability to give or receive love effectively; clearing any blockages here will help you open up your heart further so that you can feel more empathy towards others as well as yourself.
Lapis Lazuli is a great stone to help you deal with stress. This crystal can help you feel more confident and attract more positive energy, which may be just what you need when dealing with anger or frustration.
Lapis Lazuli can also be used as a tool for meditation and healing because it works on both the physical and spiritual levels. It has been said that this stone promotes balance between mind, body and spirit by helping one connect with higher guidance from within themselves (or from other sources).
Citrine is a powerful stone that can help you let go of your fears and worries. It is also great for attracting wealth and prosperity into your life. Citrine is known as the merchant stone, and can help you attract money and prosperity into your life.
Citrine has been used since ancient times by priests, shamans, healers and spiritual guides to promote healing on all levels: physical, mental/emotional, spiritual/intuitional (clairvoyance), psychic abilities (clairaudience). It is said to increase self-worth while reducing negative emotions such as jealousy or resentment which often result in ill health when held within us for too long without being released through proper release techniques such as Reiki energy healing sessions
Carnelian is a stone of passion, courage and will. It's associated with the sacral chakra (the second chakra), which is associated with creativity, sexuality and pleasure. Carnelian can be used to help you overcome feelings of guilt or shame related to sex or any creative endeavor that might have been inhibited by your upbringing.
Carnelian clears negative energies from the body while encouraging positive ones to flow through it; this helps people who are feeling down on themselves or depressed because they aren't living up to their full potential feel better about themselves again! This crystal also encourages self-confidence so that you can reach out into new experiences without fear or trepidation--it's especially useful for those who are shy but want more out of life than just sitting around watching TV all day long every day!

Crystals are used in orgonite, a form of crystal healing that purifies water and air. Orgonite can also be used to remove negative energy from your home or office, making it an effective tool for relieving stress.
To get started with healing crystals, find one that resonates with you based on their color or shape (you can use our guide here). Then place them somewhere where they're visible so that they're easy for you to see throughout the day--this could mean placing them on your desk at work or putting them near the bedside table when going to sleep at night!
