Best Crystals for Restful Sleep

Falling right asleep is great.

Except that is not reality for some people. If you struggle to get restful sleep it might be time to try sleeping crystals instead of other sleep aides. While some people may dismiss the power of sleep crystals many people rely on their so called power when placed under a pillow or on a nightstand to get a good nights rest.

Not sure if Crystals actually IMPROVE Sleep?

Sure, sleep crystals are not as powerful as prescription sleeping aides but they do work for some people, plus they have no harmful side effects like sleeping pills and don’t cause discomfort like sleep masks. The soothing vibes of Amethyst and the cooling tones from Quartz crystals can help fall asleep as soon as your head touches your pillow and wake up feeling better than ever!

Sleep Crystal Myths

Many people will disagree or even laugh when you tell them you use sleep crystals. Sure, there may not be a lot of science to back up their power but as long as it is working for you why ask questions! Not getting enough sleep at night can ruin my plans for the next day so I will deal with a few weird looks in order to wake up feeling my best.

What Crystals help you sleep?

My personal favorite crystals for sleep are Selenite, Amethyst, Rose Quartz and Moonstones.


One of my favorite crystals for sleep is Selenite. A few small crystals positioned around your room and under your pillow can fill your room with positive energy. Selenite’s high vibration frequency is perfect for driving away bad dreams and preventing insomnia.

Old crystals not as effective as they once were?

Selenite’s vibration frequency is so high it can even be used to recharge old crystals and create a peaceful aura. Try leaving your Selenite in contact overnight with your old crystals and the results may surprise you!


Sleep crystal experts will tell you that Amethyst can be dangerous due to its power to amplify dreams.

In most cases intense dreams are a good thing. They can relieve stress, stop anxiety and help you stay in bed all night. Just be careful if you are prone to having nightmares! If amethyst amplifies a nightmare you could be in for quite a fright!

Quartz Crystals

Nightmares and night terrors are not just for kids. A Quartz crystal under your pillow will clear your mind and guide you towards pleasant dreams. It is my favorite crystal for deep sleep and always help me feel great, especially when I have to wake up early.

Running my own company requires getting a good nights rest. I’m the type of person who needs a solid 8 hours of sleep per night.

One of my tricks for an awesome nights rest is keeping my Amethyst crystal by my bed, on my night stand. Amethyst is one of the most powerful crystals to help with sleep. Amethyst stones bring soothing and calming energies that help me to relax.

I use Golden Calcite. For me personally it is very relaxing. Just keep it in your pillow and hold it for a bit before you try to go to sleep. The purifying energy of Calcite cleans out stored negative energy from a room, the body, etc. I find this crystal to help clear out the chatter in our minds.

Calcite is a protecting, grounding and centering stone, and can help bring inner peace. The inner peace feels so powerful it just relaxes us almost immediately. All calcites stones are helpful in lessening of fear and reducing stress. All calcites are soothing but I find the golden calcite the most soothing.

I love blue kyanite and amethyst for promoting restful sleep and sweet dreams. Also great for lucid dreaming! I keep them in a wood dish of sand on my night stand or in a terrarium jar filled with moss, crystals, and calming herbs!

My favorite sleep crystals are selenite, herkimer diamond, and kyanite. Selenite is beautifully attuned to the energy of angels and helps to clear and calm your energy before bed. Herkimer diamonds are beautiful bringers of light and can help you to have and remember magical vivid dreams.

Last but not least, kyanite is a powerfully protective stone that helps to build a bridge to your higher guidance, while increasing dream recall, and supporting you in aligning with more of your highest authenticity while you sleep. Try placing these three stones on your bedside table to consistently leverage their wonderful energy and powerful assistance while you sleep!
