Top 11 Crystals for the Covid-19 Outbreak

Covid-19 has us all freaking the f*ck out! I was recently asked which crystals would be best to use for recovery during this time. I gave a couple of crystals off the top of my head, which of course got me thinking… I wonder which other crystals would be extremely useful at this time? And so… I did some research and have compiled a lengthy list of crystals that are great for the immune system to share with you today. No doubt if you are an avid crystal collector, you have already got most of these in your stash!

Before we begin, let me preface this article by saying that by no means am I a doctor or giving medical advice. If you are suffering from an illness it is important to seek medical treatment from a professional. That being said, crystals are a great complement to modern medicine and the results are very beneficial.

Amber

Not only is it an excellent pain reliever and natural antibiotic, but amber also balances the body and can relieve stress and turmoil. It also imparts joy and self-confidence and boosts vitality. Because amber is actually a resin and not a stone (gasp!) if you find it in a raw state, you can crush it into a powder and mix it with water or oil (I recommend avocado) to make an elixir of sorts. Apply this to the base of the neck, wrists and/or solar plexus to assist with breaking fevers, as well as add it topically to joints for aches and pains that may be plaguing you.

Blue lace agate is a beautiful and calming stone. It makes you feel nurtured and promotes taking care of oneself. It is associated with the throat chakra and is useful to alleviate throat pain. Place a piece of blue lace on the throat if feeling any discomfort. You may want to find a nice blue lace pendant to wear during this time.ter or oil (I recommend avocado) to make an elixir of sorts.

Amethyst

Amethyst has many amazing qualities! It is associated with the higher chakras (especially the crown and third eye chakras) and is known for assisting with psychic abilities. However, there is so much more to amethyst than that! Let’s dig in, shall we?

Did you know that amethyst is great for headaches? Next time you have a headache, if you can, lay down and place a smooth piece of amethyst on your third eye and take some nice deep breaths. If you are unable to lay down- just hold a piece to your forehead and feel the difference. Amethyst is also a natural tranquilizer. It combats insomnia and protects against nightmares amethyst is also great for alleviating stress and reinforces the cleansing of organs and the immune system. Amethyst helps balance emotions- which is great for those of us who are stuck indoors with nothing to do but worry and take it out on everyone else in the household! Little known fact, amethyst encourages the reabsorption of water- so if you are feeling dehydrated or fighting a fever, I would place a clean, polished amethyst tumble stone in your water bottle. If there is one crystal I recommend having with you at this time it is amethyst!!

Ametrine

Ametrine is made up of amethyst and citrine. (Citrine, although an amazing stone for so many reasons did not make our list today on its own. However, we still get its amazing healing benefits through ametrine.)

Ametrine is known to help dissolve toxins within the body and alleviating fatigue. Fatigue being ONE of the major symptoms of this virus, ametrine is very well equipped to combat it. It is also very good with battling depression and promoting the feeling of joy within us!

Aquamarine

Aquamarine, march’s birthstone (coincidence? I think not!) is excellent for lessening symptoms of excessive immune reactions of respiratory illnesses such as asthma and allergies. It is also very useful in fighting colds and sinus infections. It is sometimes referred to as a Flu Buster stone. Looking for strength and courage to get you through this scary time? Look no further! Aquamarine is great for giving you that shot of strength that you didn’t know you had. Due to its light blue color, it is associated with the throat chakra and is very adept at balancing it. As the virus in question likes to attack our respiratory systems sits in our throat, aquamarine is a very handy stone to keep on your person!

Blue Lace Agate

Blue lace agate is a beautiful and calming stone. It makes you feel nurtured and promotes taking care of oneself. It is associated with the throat chakra, and is useful to alleviate throat pain. Place a piece of blue lace on the throat if feeling any discomfort. You may want to find a nice blue lace pendant to wear during this time.

Calcite

Calcite (especially green) helps to fortify one’s immune system. Place a nice piece of clean calcite into your water for a great immune booster water elixir! Calcite is perfect for bringing stability and overcoming obstacles.

Carnelian

Another amazing overall healing stone- it particularly assists during this time due to its ability to assist in ridding the lungs and/or sinuses of congestion and helping the body absorb vitamins and flush them through the body.

Emerald

Another great stone for calming and rest. Lepidolite actually has lithium in it’s make-up so it is perfect for relief of anxiety, stress and sleep disorders. It balances mood swings and eases depression. Lepidolite also dispels negative energy and is known as a great purification stone. Keep lepidolite under your pillow while trying to fall asleep or keep a piece against your skin (jewelry is a great way to do this) to relieve anxiety and fear.

Place emerald in a crystal grid to promote healing and balance!

Fluorite

Fluorite has a reputation of being a powerful anti-viral stone. It promotes detoxification and helps to align energy. Fluorite is also a great stone to use when you need clear thinking and laser focus. Use it during this time to not only protect yourself from viruses, but to also stay clear headed and not to be overwhelmed by fear.

Green Aventurine

We would be amiss not to quickly mention green aventurine. A great stone for luck, it is also one that promotes general health and wellbeing and is known for boosting one’s
