Amethyst Properties & Uses

Amethyst is a high-vibrational crystal with multifaceted benefits. It’s known for its wonderful benefits to dreamwork, meditation, and relieving addiction. This crystal is a natural tranquilizer, transmuting stress and anxiety into peaceful serenity, and also helping you cope with grief and loss. Amethyst deflects psychic attacks and improves motivation.

As it connects to the Crown chakra, Amethyst enhances spiritual and metaphysical abilities, helping with scrying and visualization, purifying the aura, and heightening intuition. Sleeping with Amethyst enhances the ability to have out-of-body experiences, visuals, prophetic dreams, and to dream recall. 

Physically, this crystal improves motivation, memory, and alleviates headaches, pain, insomnia, and bruises/skin blemishes.

How to use & where to place in your home

Due to its calming properties, placing Amethyst in your nightstand or under your pillow can help you relax before sleep and assist you with dreamwork and recall. This crystal may also help you during meditation and yoga, by vibrating with serene, peaceful energies.
