Red Agate is a grounding, inspiring and spiritual awakening & protection stone. This stone shields the wearer from negative energies and helps get rid of fear and anxiety. It's calming and it helps balance the Muladhara (root) chakra and allows you to stay grounded during stressful or emotional times. It is the stone of the Hero’s Journey, giving us the courage to follow our spiritual path, even into the dark places we fear, and to emerge triumphantly again into the light. Anyone preparing for a big change would do well to work with Red Agate's energy.
Sandalwood’s scent is both excellent for staying present and alert during meditation, which makes it wonderful for ritual and spiritual practice. Its scent is said to transform desires, and also to bring emotional balance.
