The Ultimate Guide to 6 of the Best Self-Care & Mindfulness Crystals
Picture this. A Roman is preparing for battle. He’s been prioritising his self-care by wearing his crystals, so he’s feeling calm and his faith is strong. He’s certain he’ll attract good health, prosperity and victory in his battle. Pretty inspiring, right?
Well, for thousands of years, people have shared rather similar beliefs. Maybe not in regards to battling with swords and daggers, but certainly in terms of battling with life’s difficulties.
Crystals are regarded as a source of healing power. Across the globe, many cultures believe that they align and transform your spirit, energy and physical health. By wearing or placing crystals under your pillow, they are said to absorb positive energy, remove negative energy and prevent sickness.
Of course, each crystal is used for a different purpose and has its own individual meaning. So, if you’re interested in finding the best crystals for your own self-care ritual, continue reading to ensure your understanding is crystal clear.
CALMING & INTUITION
The Amethyst stone stimulates inner peace, strength and stability. It naturally reduces stress and is regarded as the crystal of contentment and spirituality. It provides clarity and is great when practising meditation. Healing: Amethyst relieves insomnia, encourages restful sleep, relaxes the mind and reduces stress. It also aids physical health by reducing swelling and bruising, as well as providing the organs and respiratory system with a good cleanse.
Aventurine encourages emotional peace, happiness and a joyous, light-hearted outlook on life. It promotes health, wellness and allows us to remain calm when we feel angry.

Ametrine, also known as trystine or bolivianite, combines the attributes of the Amethyst crystal and the Citrine crystal, to create the stone of optimism.
