I'm that weirdo at TSA that has to pull all of my crystals out of my carry-on and explain what they are. Shout out to the TSA agent that accidentally pulled out my extra pair of underwear (yes, always have one in your carry-on folks, god forbid your luggage doesn’t make, you’ll want fresh undies) while rummaging through my crystal bag.

Here’s the crystals I recommend to find some restful sleep on a plane.

1. Celestite: it's been nicknamed the “cosmic lullaby” - Celestite is a calming crystal and lessens the chaotic thoughts swirling through your mind. This one is especially good if you're a nervous flyer, it’ll help sooth your soul and surround you with loving energy along the way.

2. Selenite: it's a high vibe crystal good for creating a peaceful and clear mind. Selenite cleanses your aura of negative energy allowing sleep to come on faster as you take off on your journey.

3. Lepidolite: what I love about this one is that it creates a sense of ease and security - it’s the mood stabilizer of the crystal world. I used to have a tendency to wake up if I had drifted off from the shear nerve of being in a tin can hurling though the sky - ah! But with this crystal I find that I feel cozy and stress-free which allows me to stay asleep longer.
