Struggling to get a good night's sleep? You're not alone. Many of us lie awake at night, our minds racing, unable to drift off to dreamland. In a fast-paced, technology-driven world, restful sleep can feel elusive. Worse yet, the search for better sleep can be frustrating, filled with tips and tricks that just don’t seem to work.

Enter the world of crystals! These gems have been used for centuries for their calming and healing properties. Whether you're a seasoned crystal enthusiast, or just curious about their benefits, we’re excited to teach you how they can be used to create a peaceful, sleep-friendly environment. It's not about quick fixes or miracle cures; it's about finding harmony and creating a space where restful sleep can flourish.


The first thing to do is check your sleep habits. Do you set aside time to wind-down before bed? Are you on your phone or watching TV before falling asleep? Improving our sleep hygiene can help us fall asleep and keep us sleeping through the night.

Supportive Sleep Habits

Figure out what helps you decompress from your day and include it in your nightly routine. It may be listening to a podcast, reading a book, or going for a walk. This is unique to every person, and figuring it out will be transformative.

TVs & Devices

Avoid using your phone, or computer before bed, as well as watching TV. Better yet, try to keep these things away from your bed or out of your bedroom entirely to keep you from getting tempted to use them. The blue light cast from screens, as well as the content on social media or on TV, stimulate our brains and keep them from entering a calm state before bed.


A clean space leads to a relaxed mind. Many of us don’t realize how much our environment affects our ability to rest and wind-down. Clearing up clutter and extra items in our bedroom helps soothe and settle our brain and nervous system.

Designate Your Space

Designate your room as your sleep and rest space. This means avoiding energizing and stimulating activities. Use your room and your bed only for things that calm you down, like reading or meditating. Avoid using your room for work, studying, or watching TV.

Avoid Energizing Crystals

Energizing crystals have their time and place–but that’s not in your bedroom. If you can, keep these crystals elsewhere in your home and only use soothing, calming crystals in your room. 

Using Crystals

With your sleep routine established, it's time to incorporate crystals. If you’re meditating or working with a crystal  to help improve your sleep, make sure to leave time for this before bed.

There’s gems that are believed to lull you to sleep, protect you in your dreams, and keep you grounded through the night.

Flower Amethyst 

Flower Amethyst is known to ease anxiety and tension. It's most useful to those struggling with insomnia as it helps your mind, body and spirit relax. It may also provide clarity to confusing or chaotic dreams. Place this crystal beside your bed to access its benefits.

For those interested in lucid dreaming, Flower Amethyst may be helpful when used with a specific intention/during a particular lucid dreaming practice. 

Black Tourmaline 

Black Tourmaline clears and repels negative energy. It's perfect for those struggling with restlessness and nightmares. Pair it with Selenite to create a powerful energetic shield, keeping you protected through the night. 

You can place this crystal under your pillow or wear it as jewelry.


Celestine promotes a calm, peaceful atmosphere. It can be used for general sleep issues, but is especially helpful for those who struggle to sleep through the night. It will help you unwind and bring tranquility to your space and to your dreams. Place this crystal under your pillow or beside your bed. You can also meditate with it while focusing on intentions such as rest or pleasant dreams.

Black Obsidian 

Black Obsidian has a similar effect as Black Tourmaline, aiding in warding off negative energies. It can cleanse space and thoughts, creating a safe environment for sleep. Its best used placed beside your bed as it can be brittle and break if placed under your pillow or worn as jewelry during sleep. 

However, Black Obsidian is not recommended for those who suffer from vivid dreams. This crystal has been thought to allow messages to flow through dreams, and is often used by those interested in dream work and visions.
