Whether you’re a seasoned healer or new to the world of crystals, read on to explore our top crystals for stress in times when you need support.
Stress is often disregarded, as it has become something we’ve normalised in many aspects of our lives. We deal with it in many forms, whether it’s stress of social situations, relationship issues, work or the simple yet heavy burdens of everyday life.
It is important to take time to check in with yourself. Ask yourself how you are feeling and what you may be needing in that present moment.
Do Crystals Work to Help Relieve Stress and Anxiety?
At Feel, we believe crystals are a great support tool to help us relieve stress. Each individual will have their own way of incorporating crystals into their daily life. However, we find that wearing a crystal in the form of jewellery, carrying a piece with you or placing them in the home can help invite positive energies into your vibrational field.
Read on to explore our favourite crystal picks to help soothe when stress takes over.

If you happen to be a Brisbane local, pop into our Samford Crystal Shop and let yourself get lost in the multitude of crystals and gemstone jewellery we stock. When fully immersed in a crystal environment, you’ll often find yourself drifting toward a particular stone. Often times, when you read about the crystal that is attracting you, it will provide you with support for your desired intention.
Can I Use Multiple Crystals at Once?
Many people will often “stack” their crystals according to which intentions they want to focus on. We always recommend to start working with crystals individually to get a feel for how they resonate with you. Then, start to combine them and work with multiple.
Tumbled Stones are a great way to start “stacking” your crystals, as they are an affordable and portable option.
