When it comes to health, many are turning away from traditional western medicine and looking towards natural remedies. Enter: crystals and gemstones. Known as "mother nature's natural healers", crystals have been used for thousands of years to cleanse and restore the body, and enhance mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual balance. Many believe that the vibrations of the stones interact with the human electromagnetic field, bringing about big energetic changes in our bodies.
With hundreds of crystals on the market, it can be overwhelming to choose which ones will most help. We've narrowed down our favourite three to keep in your bedroom, to help with mind, body, and sleep.
If you only have one crystal in your bedroom, Amethyst is the way to go. Known as "the all purpose stone", Amethyst is a protective stone that helps to relieve stress and anxiety in your life, and the symptoms that accompany it, namely headaches, fatigues, and anxiety. It also aids in cell regeneration (supporting your bones and joints) and is reputed to improve your skin.
Keeping a piece of Amethyst on your bedside table or under your pillow will aid in a number of sleep problems. It purifies your mind and clears it of negative thoughts, perfect for those who suffer from insomnia or nightmares. While you're sleeping, Amethyst will help to provide clarity when there's confusion in the mind, leaving you refreshed and relaxed upon waking.
Known as "the loving stone", Rose Quartz emits vibrations of love, harmony, and peace. Because of its soothing and calming effects, Rose Quartz is popular for the bedroom, bringing a sense of tranquility to your space. It opens your heart to give and receive love, perfect for those looking to improve their romantic relationships.
