Top 5 Crystals For Sleep

In today's fast-paced world, getting a good night's sleep can feel like a luxury. We all know the basic principles of getting a good night's rest, like not using our phone or looking at screens a few hours before sleep, making sure our bedroom is quiet, dark, and at a comfortable temperature, getting sunlight first thing in the morning, avoiding large meals and caffeine early in the evening, and drinking chamomile tea. However, sometimes you can still struggle to get a good night's sleep or even wake up feeling well-rested. With some extra tools, such as crystals, you can create a serene space that can help promote relaxation and prepare your mind and body for rest. Let's explore the top five crystals that can help you achieve the sleep of your dreams.

1. Amethyst 

Known as the "stone of tranquility," Amethyst is highly regarded for its calming and soothing properties. It is believed to promote relaxation, reduce stress, and enhance peaceful sleep. 


2. Lepidolite

This crystal is often referred to as the "stone of transition" due to its ability to help alleviate stress and anxiety. Lepidolite contains lithium, making it a powerful crystal for promoting a sense of calm and aiding in restful sleep. 


3. Selenite

Selenite is known for its purifying and cleansing properties, both energetically and physically. It is believed to help clear the mind of negative thoughts and promote a sense of peace and tranquility. Placing Selenite near your bed can create a calming atmosphere conducive to sleep


4. Moonstone

This crystal is associated with the moon and is believed to have a calming, balancing effect on emotions. Moonstone is often used to enhance intuition and promote restful sleep.

5. Black Tourmaline

While not traditionally associated with sleep, Black Tourmaline is a powerful grounding stone that can help absorb negative energy and promote a sense of security and protection. 


You will want to first ensure your crystals are charged and cleansed regularly especially when it comes to using them for sleep. Cleansing and charging crystals helps reset their energetic properties, allowing you to set new intentions or reaffirm existing ones. This is important for sleep purposes, as you may want to focus on different aspects of your sleep quality or patterns. Crystals also emit their own unique vibrational frequencies, which can be affected by external factors or energetic imbalances. Regular cleansing and charging help maintain the crystal's natural frequency, ensuring it can effectively influence your energy field during sleep.

You can easily do this by simply placing them out under the sunlight or moonlight for 24 hours by placing them on a windowsill or outside if the weather permits or create a weekly ritual by using white sage or palo santo (read our blog post here for more information and tips on how to cleanse and clear your crystals).

Now let's explore some ways to actually use your sleep crystals within your bedroom and prior to getting into bed to ensure they create that beautiful, calm serene space that can help promote relaxation and prepare your mind and body for rest:

Crystal Grids: 
You could choose to create a gorgeous crystal grid under your bed or on your bedside table. This involves arranging your chosen crystals in a beautiful geometric pattern to amplify their energy and intention. For sleep, you could create a grid using Amethyst, Lepidolite, Selenite, Moonstone, and Black Tourmaline. 

Crystal Elixirs:
Create your own beautiful crystal elixir. A crystal elixir is made by placing crystals in or near a glass or bottle of water that is left out under the moonlight or sunlight to infuse the water with the crystal's energy. The water can then be used to drink (once the crystal has been removed), sprayed around your bedroom or on your pillow before sleep. Please be careful which crystals you place directly in water and if you decide to drink the elixir first ensure your crystal is safe for drinking water and always cleaned prior to placing in the water. Of the Top 5 crystals for sleep Amethyst would be the only crystal safe to place directly in the water for drinking. You can place the Selenite, Black Tourmaline, Lepidolite and Moonstone next to or under your glass. 

Crystal Massage:
Some people use small, smooth crystals like Amethyst or Selenite to gently massage their temples, forehead, or the back of their neck before bed. This can help release tension and promote relaxation, preparing the body for sleep.

Crystal Bath:
Adding crystals to your bathwater is one of the best ways to relax before bed, not only are baths beneficial for helping you get more deep sleep your crystals energy can also help enhance this experience. You can place crystals like Amethyst, Black Tourmaline and Moonstone in the bathwater to infuse it with their calming energies.

Under the Mattress or Pillow:

Crystal-infused Room Spray:
Create a room spray by adding a few drops of essential oil (such as lavender for relaxation) and a small crystal (like Amethyst or Moonstone) to distilled water in a spray bottle. Shake well before misting your bedroom with the calming scent before bedtime.

Crystal Meditation:
Before bed or when you first get into bed, meditate with your chosen sleep crystals to relax your mind and body. Place your crystals intuitively on your body or simply hold in your hand and focus your mind on your intention to have a restful night's sleep, once you have your intention you can visualize yourself somewhere where you feel safe and peaceful one idea could be next to a beautiful waterfall or flowing river within a calm forest at night and imagine yourself drifting off to sleep.

Another great way to track your progress with your new sleep crystals is by keeping a dream journal near your bed to record any dreams or insights experienced while using your crystals for sleep, helping to enhance your own self-awareness. 

    As you embark on a journey to enhance your sleep with crystals, remember that the key to their effectiveness lies in your intention and belief. Choose the crystals that resonate with you, and incorporate them into your bedtime routine with mindfulness and gratitude.
