Let's All Get Along
Is there anything more heartwarming than bringing your extended family together around the table to enjoy a holiday meal?
Maybe seeing them go!
There’s nothing like seeing your relatives: from the heartfelt reunions to the hilarious anecdotes… to the passive aggressive comments and straight up aggressive arguments. But this year, you have a secret weapon to keep everyone in harmony. To ensure that your Thanksgiving meal makes memories instead of sowing discord, add some of these crystals to your dining room centerpiece.
This calming blue crystal immediately sets everyone at ease. Amazonite promotes open, clear, and loving communication. It unlocks your Throat Chakra, encouraging you to speak your truth.

Keeping Yourself Grounded During the Holidays
When the jack-o-lantern is starting to scary for all the wrong reasons and the bulk of the Halloween candy has been consumed, suddenly “Jingle Bells” starts to follow you everywhere. It’s on TV and in the grocery store, stalking you before you’ve ever gotten a chance to buy your Thanksgiving turkey.
Whether the encroaching holiday season fills you with cheer or dread, no one escapes November or December without at least a little bit of festive stress. From trying to score that perfect gift to mediating arguments over the dinner table, we could all use a little bit of help around the holidays.
We’ve curated a list of some of our favorite stones for our least favorite holiday problems to keep you grounded and balanced all season long!
Crystals for Family Conflict
One of the best things about the holidays is getting to reconnect with your family. But what about the in-laws you’ve just never gotten along with, or the uncle who seems determined to play devil’s advocate in every discussion?
Fluorite encourages you to think before speaking. It promotes harmony within familial groups by reducing fear and confusion. This crystal brings everything into stunning clarity, especially your family’s love for each other. Adding a Fluorite free form, pyramid, or sphere to communal spaces, such as the living room or the dining room centerpiece, will help keep things peaceful.
If conflict does arise, Scolecite calls on everyone to be their best, most mature selves and come to an accord. This high-vibration crystal deepens familial bonds through profound empathy. It is the perfect crystal to bring you closer to all of your family members, including those that you won’t have the opportunity to see this year.
Crystals for Generosity
Many holiday traditions have their roots in charity and sympathy. For our ancient ancestors, this time of year was all about making sure that the entire community survived the winter. (For more information about the ancient pagan origins of our holiday traditions, check out our article, Winter Solstice –The Yule Blog). When you feel lost in holiday stress, there are very few things more grounding and gratifying than volunteering.
The ultimate stone of service, Dolomite draws out your most generous self. Keep this stone nearby all holiday season, and it will reveal opportunities for kindness. Dolomite helps you make most charitable decisions in your daily life, from letting someone cut in line to tipping your server a little extra, and also supports charity work.
Rose Quartz pairs perfectly with Dolomite. This crystal is a direct conduit for divine love, and it allows you to radiate compassion everywhere you go. Rose Quartz imbues loving energy into any situation, helping you embody universal love.
Crystals for Seasonal Affective Disorder
Christmas lights, Hanukkah menorahs, Kwanza kinaras, and candles galore fight back against winter’s encroaching darkness. However, for one reason or another, sometimes they simply are not enough. Many people experience some form of seasonal depression, formally diagnosed as Seasonal Affective Disorder, and many more have negative associations with the holiday season due to past trauma or toxic family dynamics.
If you the holidays are hard for you, reach for Snowflake Obsidian. This crystal features specks of white against a black background. Not only does its imagery mimic holiday snow, but Snowflake Obsidian also provides a light in the dark. This crystal encourages profound introspection and releases toxic energy for gentle emotional restoration. Try pairing Snowflake Obsidian with Morganite if you struggle with negative self-talk; these crystals will remind you to be gentle with yourself as you cope and heal.
Sunstone allows you to keep the Sun’s energy in your pocket all year round. When the nights are at their longest, Sunstone provides an infusion of positivity. It will brighten up your life, while also adding extra energy and drive to help you achieve your goals.
Crystals for Stress
Even if you are super prepared for the holidays, stress finds a way. You can finalize your Thanksgiving menu in June and buy all your Christmas gifts by July, but you will need a Hail Mary at least once before January.
Amethyst is one of the most profoundly soothing stones available. It eases stress by calling on your innate creativity. Amethyst works through your Third Eye and Crown Chakras to connect you to divine wisdom, informing all of your decisions from a place of spirituality and rationality.
Aquamarine embodies all of water’s calming energy. It encourages you to slow down and release the anxieties and fears that are holding you back. Once you reach this meditative state, Aquamarine welcomes joy into your life. This crystal places you on your own private island—at least mentally.
Crystals for Grounding and Protection
No matter what joys or challenges you will face this holiday season, grounding on a regular basis will ensure smooth sailing. Work with these crystals in a meditation practice, wear them in jewelry, or even use them as decoration to ground an entire space.
Black Tourmaline is one of the best protection crystals out there. It acts like a psychic power wash, deflecting any thoughtless, rude, or downright toxic energy that you encounter. It will also keep you focused on your to-dos, even amidst all the festive chaos.
Shungite is a powerful cleanser; it is actually used as a natural water purifier in many areas. If you feel strung out by too much online shopping or overwhelmed by the family group text, Shungite will help keep you balanced and centered while counteracting electromagnetic frequencies.
The holiday season is a time for joy and celebration, and while it carries a veritable minefield of stressors, you don’t need to worry. With these crystals, you can make the most of the most wonderful time of the year.
The Crystal That Could Cure Your Hangover: Selenite
When you feel your absolute worst—when you cannot focus on anything, when your head is pounding, and when you have to struggle just to function—reach for Selenite. No crystal cuts through brain fog faster. Whether you are hungover physically or mentally, don’t take some hair of the dog. Instead, let Selenite revive and realign you.
Selenite’s name comes from the Greek Goddess of the Moon, Selene, and it shines a light on everything in your life. This crystal is the ultimate source of clarity. Selenite has one of the highest frequencies of any object, and it will raise your vibrations to unlock new heights.
Selenite works directly with your Crown Chakra, channeling divine wisdom to help you see the truth of any situation. Selenite’s balancing energy flows through down your spine to bring your Chakra system into perfect alignment.
With this enhanced awareness, you can push through whatever is holding you back. Selenite is the perfect tool to combat burnout and confusion. If you get lost in the details, this crystal will encourage you to step back, see the bigger picture, and create a plan to move forward.
Selenite boosts your intuition in both your earthly and spiritual lives. It reveals your highest self and promotes transformation and ascension. Selenite won’t just uplift you now; it will set you up for success your whole life long.
Next time you feel exhausted, confused, or just out of sorts, grab some Selenite. This crystal’s high vibrations are powerful enough to pull you out of any funk. Light up your life with one of our Selenite rods, tumbled stones, or tower lamps!
