Crystal Kit For Anxiety And Stress When Travelling

Some crystal suggestions for when your travel.

Whether you are someone who has been suffering from anxiety for a long time or just a person who occasionally experiences stress and anxiety, we can all agree that traveling causes everyone to feel stressed and anxious at some point or another. 

Some people take medicine or sedatives to help calm the nerves but if you're someone who can't take medicine or just don't want to take medicine because of the side effects and want to try an alternative,  this article may be of help.

Crystals have been used for thousands of years to heal ailments affecting the spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical bodies. In this article, we will discuss a few crystals that you can try carrying with you when you have to travel.

The items mentioned below are not meant to replace medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. Always go to your doctor or medical professional for any treatment or condition you may have. 

Although crystal experts vouch for the crystal's healing abilities, there is currently little scientific data showing the benefits that will be mentioned below. So, take these suggestions with a pinch of salt. 

Things To Remember

The information related here comes mainly from the book The Healing Crystal First Aid Manual by Michael Gienger and sites like Crystal Vaults, Healing Crystals for You, and Charms of Light. 

In terms of The Healing Crystal First Aid Manual, Geinger suggests that the crystal kits should have a specific amount of crystals with varying purposes. He stresses that all should complement each other so the energies don't amplify or work in a way you don't want them to. 

Another thing Geinger wants readers to remember is to pick crystals that can be used for various jobs and ailments, not just one. The last thing he points out is to look for crystals that you may be able to wear, carry on your hand, or attach to your body somehow. Since this is how Geinger advises using the crystals for the most benefit. 

Sometimes it is not possible though to find crystals to wear, but it is preferable so the crystals are more manageable. 

The Crystal Travel Kit

For the cristal travel kit, Geinger puts together 24 crystals that he deems essential but for this article, we will only be covering 12. And, we will be supplying more information from the other sources mentioned above. 

In this article, we will be focusing on crystals and herbs that help with stress and anxiety.
