Best Crystals & Gemstones for Stress & Anxiety | Crystal Karma by Trina
Anxiety can cause intense, excessive and persistent worry and fear about everyday situations. Fast heart rate, rapid breathing, sweating and feeling tired may occur.
Anxiety can be normal in stressful situations such as public speaking or taking a test. Anxiety is only an indicator of underlying disease when feelings become excessive, all-consuming and interfere with daily living.

Crystal healing can help ease some anxiety symptoms such as stomach tension, tense muscles and loss of self-confidence.  Try these calming crystals when you’re suffering from anxiety, to stay focused and calm your mind and stay in control.

Lepidolite is one of the best mood stabiliser in the world of crystals.

Lepidolite crystal contains a high amount of lithium, which is also used in anti-anxiety medication. It doesn't require a prescription and side effects include a sense of calm and tranquillity during times of stress and chaos.
