Crystals For Travelling

After a few tough years the world is finally opening up again and it's now possible to get on the move and see our wonderful planet.  

The amount of people heading off on gap years, moving abroad or just having some amazing long holidays is increasing again, so I thought it was time to talk a bit about useful crystals to take with you on an adventure.

Obviously for any trip especially a backpacking one space is a premium so with that in mind I suggest tumblestones or a gemstone bracelet are the most space effective items to take and ones which can be kept close or on your person at all times.  I've recently designed a bracelet in gorgeous tones of browns, bronzes, oranges and turquoise which is both a beautiful beaded crystal bracelet on it's on but which has been compiled especially for a man or a woman who's off travelling.

The crystals I've included are some of my favourites but not all the crystals which are said to be useful when travelling or driving.   So some of my favourite crystals for travelling include:


Possibly one of the oldest and most revered stones it's been used for centuries as a talismans for protection and purification due to its powerful energy to guard against negative forces.  It has a strong healing vibration that instils calm, bringing emotional stability and relief when you're feeling anxious.  A stone of communication and truth turquoise is particularly useful aiding clear communication, self expression, wisdom and speaking your truth.  

If struggling with exhaustion, mental confusion or panic turquoise is the ideal stone to carry with you, which I think makes its perfect for anyone travelling.
