Some of my favourite uses for amethyst

Amethyst's ability to balance hormones and improve mental clarity makes it a great crystal companion for teenagers and young adults. By promoting a sense of calm and by balancing mood swings, amethyst is a powerful partner for the young. I recommend that teens use amethyst as a tool to aid mindfulness and studying, providing them with maximum benefit of this incredible stone. Younger children can also benefit from this crystal as its tranquillising effect helps to calm hyperactivity and homesickness.

If you want to choose one crystal for your bedroom, make it amethyst. Amethyst has the ability to relieve tension, headaches, calm an overactive mind and create a deep sense of inner peace, the result? A better nights sleep. Amethyst is known to help counteract insomnia and promote a restful sleep. I have a beautiful peace of amethyst in my bedroom, I have a strong connection to that piece in particular, I find it extremely comforting.

Did you know?
The ancient Greeks used Amethyst for its sobering effects, its name actually means 'to be intoxicated' - this stone encourages sobriety from drugs and alcohol. It has been used for thousands of years to cure overindulgence, addictions, obsessiveness and bad habits

Amethyst is one of my favourite crystals to use during meditation. When I really need to calm my mind and relax, amethyst is my go to. Amethyst removes negativity, replacing it with positive energy and provides a protective bubble around your aura. Imagine a lilac amethyst bubble around you, reflecting away any bad vibes that head your way. You can feel the protection of amethyst and move into a deep state of relaxation, allowing you to look deep within and shine light onto your inner most feelings and desires. Receive intuitive insights during meditation, aiding personal transformation.

"I keep amethyst all around my home, bedroom, living room, kitchen, hallway, you name it amethyst is there. Imagine all the benefits of amethyst filling your home no matter where you are! I like to visualise a bubble of protection around my home. It is said that amethyst helps to strengthen the immune system, and although I can sometimes be hesitant when it comes to the physical healing aspects of a stone, I do believe that amethyst is protecting us from a multitude of negative vibrations."

If you are drawn towards amethyst you can be sure that is a crystal which will serve you well, its many benefits make it a wonderful all rounder and a great crystal gift.
