Life can be stressful. It is essential to form healthy habits for the soul to deal, and cope, with stress and anxiety, or they can end up causing significant problems in your life. Therapy, meditation, yoga, exercise, and lifestyle changes all help, and you can also use crystals for anxiety and stress to manage your symptoms.
The root chakra is linked to the adrenal medulla. This part of the adrenal gland is what causes us to react with a fight or flight response, and what causes you to feel stressed out.
Among the many crystals for stress relief, crystals that help heal the Root chakra are the most beneficial to ease overwhelming feelings of anxiety. Placing crystals on your Root chakra, during meditation, is the best way to charge and activate your crystals to relieve the tension in your life.
Let’s look at the different crystals for relieving stress and how they can help you:

Amethyst is the number one crystal for easing anxiety. Placing Amethyst clusters and geodes in a room will eliminate tension and nervous energy , making it an excellent crystal to put in a high-paced work environment.
