Vacations are stressful! In some cases, there are months of planning and saving for the perfect holiday, and in others, vacations are a spur of the moment thing, which leads to its own set of problems. Not to worry though! We have the perfect crystals for all vacationers – the pragmatic and the perpetually impulsive!
1) Turquoise: The Traveler’s Stone
This is a stone everyone needs with them while traveling. Turquoise protects you and your belongings when traveling. It is a Native American stone of protection and wealth. Many people keep this stone in their cars for safety on the road, and if you plan on a last-minute road trip before the summer ends, this stone is a must! Even if you’re not a road trip vacationer, I’d still recommend this stone. Place a small piece in your luggage when flying to protect your belongings and keep the airline from losing your baggage. Turquoise jewelry is also great to wear while on vacation to protect yourself.
2) Citrine: The Merchant’s Stone
Unfortunately, vacations do cost money. If you’re one of those people pinching pennies to save up for your dream trip, try out citrine. Citrine is a stone of prosperity. It helps gain and maintain wealth. Keep a piece in your place of work or at home to help attract wealth. Wearing the crystal or carrying a small piece around can achieve the same effect. Place a piece inside your wallet so that each time you go to buy something you’re reminded of the trip you are saving for.
3) Sunstone: Only Positive Vibes this Vacation
Have you ever been on a fun vacation only for the bad mood of one person to throw off the vibe of the whole trip? To prevent this take along a bit of sunstone on your vacation! Sunstone is a joyful, light-inspiring stone. It provides an energizing, sunny feeling and encourages optimism and enthusiasm. Plus, sunstone facilitates self-empowerment and independence making it the perfect traveling stone for first-time explorers and lone travelers. Use this stone for a confidence boost and finally take that trip you’ve always wanted!
4) Prehnite: A Crystal for Flyers
At first, this may seem like an odd choice, and you may be asking, “How is the Stone of Unconditional Love and Healing supposed to help flyers?” Prehnite is actually very useful for flyers for two reasons. First, prehnite is a stone that is supposed to help with deep meditation and sleep, and anyone who has flown knows how difficult it is to sleep on a plane. Wear a piece of prehnite jewelry or carry a tumbled stone to help get some rest on the flight. Secondly, Prenite helps people overcome phobias making it the perfect stone for fearful first-time flyers.
5) Jade: Good Luck on Your Trip!
Jade is a lucky stone making it the perfect crystal to take with you on vacation because it is a fact of traveling that at least one thing is going to go sideways on your trip. It is impossible to plan for every variable when traveling, so bringing along a little good luck for yourself might be your best bet. Plus Jade promotes self-assuredness, self-reliance, and self-sufficiency – all of which are good qualities when traveling.
