Crown Chakra Gift Guide

These 5 items are inspired by the Crown Chakra.

1. Christian Berry Gem Catcher

One-of-a-kind dreamcatchers—this one made with amethyst to connect with higher domains—serve as stunning talismans of psychic expansiveness. Berry customizes each one by consulting with tarot cards and his finely honed intuition (from $60, shopeverydaymagic.com).

2. Naturally Dyed Goods Lavender Eye Pillow

Mindful textiles speak volumes about our relationship to the environment. This simple eye pillow, packed with lentils, rice, and lavender buds, will quiet the nervous system and help induce deep rest, the purview of the crown chakra ($16, naturallydyedgoods.com).

3. Among the Flowers Cedar + Rose Smudge Stick

This delicate bouquet of hand-bound herbs and blooms is burned to lift consciousness and clear negativity—making way for connection to purpose and destiny ($16, amongtheflowers.com).

4. Upstate Silk Pillowcase in Galaxy

The crown chakra relates to the pineal gland, which regulates hormones, emotions, and circadian rhythms. This silken, hypoallergenic pillowcase—hand-dyed in Brooklyn, brings serenity to dedicated dreamers ($136, youreupstate.com).

5. P.F. Candle Co. Incense

The crown chakra’s aim of uniting human consciousness with the divine is exemplified by incense, which was invented to appease the gods with its pleasant aroma. We’re obsessed with P.F. Candle Co. hand-dipped incense blends, sourced from rich but often unacknowledged scents, such as teakwood and moss, found in nature ($8 a pack, pfcandleco.com).
