How are you feeling right now?
I know that personally, my anxiety has been through the roof. I’m worried about everything and everybody. If you’re an empath, this can be an especially tough time. I was looking for something easy that I could do daily, if needed, for anxiety and stress.
After scouring through several old books about herbs, crystals, aromatherapy, and grimoires, I took notes and compared remedies. Not surprisingly (though it still always shocks me how well these remedies intertwine), many of these books recommend similar remedies, even when they span centuries apart.
Here is what I found from my studies:
Larimar is the ideal crystal for releasing worries, anxiety, and fear
Larimar is used in two main methods, one is as a worry stone and the second is used in a small meditation ceremony
The best herbs for releasing anxiety and worry while inducing inner peace, serenity, and relaxation are Chamomile and Lavender
White Sage provides cleansing, purifying, and healing to any space, including the body and aura. It was also recently found to help neutralize bacteria.
The Solar Plexus Chakra holds a lot of our fear, anxiety, and worry. It is good to keep it treated and balanced when you’re feeling especially stressed out.
Of course, being a crystal healer for many years, I knew a lot of this already. However, I believe it’s important to cross-reference your information. I wanted to make sure I was building the most effective therapy I could since I’ve been under a lot of stress lately.
This kit is pretty flexible, which is what I love about it. What you really need is some Larimar (any shape or size), Chamomile, Lavender, White Sage, and something to clear and balance the Solar Plexus Chakra. Here is what I used, but I’ll offer some alternatives below:
In my kit, I’m getting my Larimar from tumbled stones (1), the Lavender and Chamomile from the protection spray (2), and the White Sage and Solar Plexus healing with the Solar Plexus Chakra Candle (3). You can choose White Sage & Lavender for the candle scent but I personally chose Basil, Sage, and Mint because it still has sage but I find the mint to be soothing. Just Sage would also work.
1. Larimar Tumbled Stone Set. This is a premium grade Larimar Tumbled Stone Set of six. Larimar is found only in the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean. It occurs as needle-like crystals, grown together in a solid mass and forms in cavities within basaltic lava. Its unique pattern reflects the crystal clear waters of its Caribbean birthplace. Larimar is a crystal of serenity, promoting relaxation in every aspect. Use as a worry stone or place in the home or workplace to assure a pleasant atmosphere. Simply wearing or carrying Larimar creates a fundamental awareness of the “all-rightness” of the world.
Larimar is a powerful emotional cleanser and healer, especially for phobias, panic attacks, stress-related imbalances, and excessive anger or fear. It aids in breaking down the walls one has built around the heart for defense and allows for emotional release and the clearing of deep emotional patterns. It helps one to reconnect to a previous, more natural state of playfulness and joyful childlike energy.
Alternatives: Larimar Wands, Slabs, or Pendants.
2. Protection Crystal Energy Pillow Spray. While the Premium Crystal Energy Pillow Spray is a pillow spray, it can also be used in many other places such as a room spray or say in our meditation ceremony! I was in need of something that had Lavender or Chamomile and this spray as both! In fact, it includes Witch Hazel, Lavender, Blue Lotus Amber, and Chamomile oils, and the essences of Amethyst and Black Tourmaline. With Amethyst being known as the all-healer and Black Tourmaline is known for being very grounding and protective, this combination is perfect for our use.
We’re looking for Chamomile here as it is well-known for it’s relaxing, soothing, and sedating properties. It has been shown to help with anxiety and stress. It also has an almost intoxicating scent that soothes almost instantly. Thankfully, this mixture also comes with Lavender. According to research, Lavender aromatherapy is thought to calm anxiety by impacting the limbic system, the part of the brain that controls emotions. It is known to aid in relaxation and sleep. The include of Blue Lotus Amber will also help with meditation.
3. Solar Plexus Chakra Crystal Candle. This candle has been specially formulated by our Certified Crystal Alchemist to bring balance to your Solar Plexus Chakra. While you can choose your own scent, for this application, we recommend White Sage & Lavender or Honeysuckle & Jasmine. White Sage has been used by Native Americans for centuries to help cleanse and purify areas as well as the physical and spiritual bodies. White Sage works well to clear any stress, anxiety, and negativity from the mind. Another option is Jasmine which provides inner peace and serenity. One study found that inhaling Jasmine oil can promote a sense of well-being.
Treating the Solar Plexus Chakra during this time is important. It helps to clear our fear, anxiety, and worry while instilling feelings of happiness and optimism.
This process is very simple, easy, and forgiving, which is one of the reasons I love it. However, it is also very effective. I try to do this a few times a week but lately, I’ve been doing this nightly before I go to bed.
1. Find a comfortable place to lay or sit. I sit down on my bed since I’ve been doing this before I go to sleep.
2. Place the six Larimar out in a circle in front of you. If you’re on a solid surface, you can place the candle in the center. If you’re on a bed (like me), you can place the candle on your nightstand or a nearby table and light it.
3. Put on the Citrine necklace that comes with the candle OR find a yellow crystal and hold it over your stomach, just a few inches above your belly button.
4. Spray the Protection Crystal Spray over the crystal circle and then twice around the room (in the air). I also like to put a spritz on my pillow.
5. Now it’s time to meditate. If you’re not into meditation, you can just sit here quietly and trying to clear your mind of thoughts. The aromatherapy, crystals, and fire energy are all working together right now. Imagine everything that has been weighing you gathering at the center of your chest. Picture this ball of energy passing down over your Solar Plexus Chakra. Hold it there for a moment and take deep breaths, inhaling the soothing scents. Then allow the ball of energy to keep moving until it passes through you and into the circle of Larimar. Remember to keep taking deep breaths, feel yourself becoming lighter and how you’re now able to breathe deeper. As the ball of energy finds its way to the Larimar, it will start to be neutralized and begin to dissipate. The Larimar is the perfect crystal vessel to transmute these energies into something positive.
If you’re finding that you’re having trouble concentrating or ridding your mind of thoughts, we recommend using music or a guided meditation. Try one of these: Solar Plexus Chakra Healing Music or Solar Plexus Chakra Balancing Guided Meditation.
