Updated on March 1, 2015

Crystals can be used in many ways in order to help ease and heal many common ailments and psychical difficulties. This type of healing is completely safe and can be used alongside any other treatments and medications you may need to take. Due to the gentle nature of crystal healing it is also suitable for use by anyone, from very young babies to the elderly and can also be used successfully with animals.

How to Treat Headaches Using Amethyst

Amethyst is a protective and purifying crystal that has long been used in healing. It’s calming and gentle vibrations are believed to be a powerful pain reliever. This pretty stone can also be used to help relieve stress and tension and promote calmness.

A smooth amethyst crystal is more suited to this exercise as it will be easier and more comfortable held against your skin. Sit in a darkened room holding the crystal in one hand. Concentrate on connecting with the healing properties of the stone and how it will help to dissolve the pain you currently feel. After several minutes hold the amethyst crystal against the painful spot on your head for between five and ten minutes and allow it to soothe away your pain. In most cases this will be enough time for the healing to work but it is not harmful to keep the crystal in place for longer. This exercise can also be carried out lying down if it is easier or feels more comfortable. Cleanse the amethyst after use.

Smoky quartz or magnesite can also be used in this healing exercise and are both also good crystals for relaxing tense muscles.

Settling Stomach Aches with Amber

Amber is a common crystal that is in fact a fossilized resin rather than true stone, but there are also lot of imitation stones available. Although these are still very pretty they lack the healing capabilities of the true fossilized resin due to not possessing the same vibrational energy or field. Take care to buy from a reputable supplier and make enquiries into the authenticity of the stones if you feel it is needed. The orange colour of amber links it to the sacral chakra and the area of the stomach and digestive system. This crystal is especially useful for easing stomach aches caused by indigestion or that are a result of overeating or eating overly spicy foods.

Sit or lay in a comfortable position holding an amber crystal in one hand. Place the crystal onto your stomach as close to the point of pain as you can. You can leave the stone there to rest on its own or hold it in place if needed. Leave the amber in place for at least ten minutes or until the pain has subsided. Cleanse the stone after every use.

Yellow jasper can also be used in this way to relieve stomach aches and is also useful when this has been caused by illness.

How to Relieve PMS and Menstrual Cramps using Moonstone

Moonstone is an excellent choice for many of the ailments that effect women including PMS, fluid retention and problems relating to the menstrual cycle. It is also useful in boosting fertility and supporting breastfeeding. Its calming energy is thought to be ideal for easing the depression, fatigue, bloating and irritability that is often associated with premenstrual syndrome.

This exercise should be carried each day for a week before your period is due to start. In a quiet room, hold and connect with the moonstone crystal before placing it onto your pelvic area. Keep the crystal in place for ten minutes and visualise your symptoms and premenstrual troubles easing and being replaced by calm and balanced energy. Once your period has started the exercise can be used to help relieve any cramps or other unpleasant symptoms in the same way. After this time the stone should be cleansed thoroughly.

Chrysocolla, labradorite and jet can be used in place of the moonstone if preferred. Jet is particularly is very good at balancing mood swings while both chrysocolla and labradorite are both effective in soothing premenstrual syndrome.

Easing Hay Fever with Blue Lace Agate

Blue lace agate is a powerful calming stone that is believed to be able to work on the immune system calming any strong reactions. This crystal is linked to the throat chakra and is also a good choice for soothing irritation and inflammation, easing itchy and sore eyes and any nasal congestion. This healing exercise can be used alongside any medications or other treatments that you use for hay fever and can be used daily if required.

This exercise will take around ten minutes to complete fully. In a quiet and calm room sit holding a blue lace agate crystal. Close your eyes and connect with the stone, feeling its calm and soothing energy and vibrations. Now hold the blue lace agate over your nose, allowing the healing properties to calm and relax your nasal passages for five minutes (or longer if you feel it is needed). Now repeat this holding the stone over each of your sinuses in turn. Cleanse the stone each day to ensure that it has its full healing potential and does not have a build-up of unhealthy energy.

If you do not have a blue lace agate crystal aquamarine can be used in its place as it is also a good balancer of the immune system. Moss agate can also be used for its ability to soothe inflammation.

Alleviating Muscle Cramps with Hematite

Hematite is a very grounding stone that healers have long believed has the ability to life illness from the body. It is strongly connected to the circulatory system, can boost self-esteem and in physical healing can be used to relieve muscle cramps and spasms. Hematite will stimulate the blood flow and help to release any tightness and restriction in the muscles.

If you are often affected by muscle cramps a crystal is small and discreet enough that you can carry it with you anywhere. When you feel a cramp or spasm coming on hold the hematite crystal in your hand and ask for it to use its healing powers to help you. Now hold the stone over the affected area while visualising the healing vibrations easing the pain. Be sure to cleanse the crystal once you can to maintain optimum healing.

Amazonite is another crystal that has the capabilities to relieve muscle cramps. Use this stone in the same way as in the hematite exercise described above.
