There are days we need a little help to relieve some stress and find some calm.
If, on such a day, you have no time to do yoga, go out for a jog or meditate, why not look into your jewellery box and wear a gem that could support you to bring some calmness to deal with what's happening around you.
Gems and crystals are not only beautiful to the eyes, but they hold exceptional properties. Some are particularly helpful to relieve stress and find some stillness to think clearly.
We have chosen six crystals to help you deal with stress and find more ease in your day.
