Healing crystals emit high-frequency energies that cleanse the aura, unblock the chakras, and transmute negative energies. They can also uplift your emotional health by shifting your energy and promoting calmness.
You should always seek your doctor’s advice, but sometimes you want alternative methods to handle your pain. While crystals are no substitute for professional help, they can be a gentle and effective accompaniment to doctor-recommended treatments.
Some of the most common triggers of headaches are stress and sleep deprivation. Specialists on auto-immune disease say that headaches are a common side effect of fatigue that often goes hand in hand with chronic illness. The wonderful thing about healing crystals is that they can be helpful regardless of the cause.
While medication can help on the physical level, crystals work with the body on an energetic level. Healing crystals for headaches help to shift imbalances in energy in the Solar Plexus and head while clearing energy blockages and negative energy.
These effects can help reduce feelings of stress while promoting calmness so you can get the rest you need, which may alleviate headaches and migraines or keep them from occurring as often.
Let’s dive into the best healing crystals for headaches and migraines, how they work, and the best ways to use them. You can find detailed methods on how to use them on our How to Use Headache Crystals article.
When it comes to healing crystals for headaches and migraines, Amethyst is the star of the show. This gorgeous crystal comes in calming hues that range from lavender to the deepest, darkest purple.
Amethyst is known for its soothing and serene healing energy that’s especially beneficial for the Crown chakra. Its ability to help you unwind, relax, and shake off stress may be extremely beneficial for alleviating headaches.
This stone is thought to have powerful abilities for shifting away bad vibes and energy blockages, which could be contributing to headache pain. Anytime you feel the tension of a headache coming on, wear Amethyst jewelry or carry a stone in your pocket. You can also sleep with it under your pillow to promote calm sleep.
The soft, gentle, pale hue of Blue Lace Agate is an excellent indicator of the energy it puts out. This stone is cooling and calming, making it an excellent choice for those tight, tension headaches that make it difficult to focus and function.
Agate is thought to neutralize negative energy and some think it can even reduce the effects of EMFs, which could contribute to tension headaches. If you feel a headache coming on from staring at your screens all day, wearing or carrying Blue Lace Agate can soothe your tired mind and revive your energy and focus.
Selenite is a white stone that is known for its soothing energy. It is instantly calming and evokes feelings of peace, positivity, and serenity. This healing crystal is uplifting for the energy and soul.
Selenite can wash away stress that accompanies tension headaches and migraines. On days when your head is feeling foggy, or you’re drained and run down, wearing or carrying Selenite can unblock your chakras. This crystal gets energy moving again so you can take on the rest of your day with vigor.
Clear Quartz is called the master healer for a reason. Radiant Quartz stone is known for its ability to promote perfect balance and harmony. It promotes energy flow in all seven chakras but is especially beneficial for the Crown chakra because it encourages high vibrations and blocks low vibrations.
Anytime you feel like negative energy might be triggering your headaches, wear or carry clear Quartz crystals. Bad vibes can cause you to feel run down and allow your headaches to linger, but Clear Quartz will protect you and help you resist them.
The beautiful soft pink hue of Rose Quartz is widely cherished. We all know Rose Quartz as the stone of love, but it’s important to remember that all of the energy systems of the body are connected. Rose Quartz takes nervous energy from the Heart chakra and turns it into loving, positive energy.
This effect can ease tension throughout the body, reducing stress and alleviating headaches. Wear or carry Rose Quartz crystals whenever you feel overstimulated to calm the nervous system and alleviate headaches. Keep in mind that it emits loving, feminine energy, so it may be especially beneficial for headaches that happen around your menstrual cycle.
Carnelian is a high-energy stone that’s beneficial for clearing energy in the lower chakras. When energy gets blocked, you don’t feel your best. Carnelian is like a detox for the chakras, allowing energy to flow freely throughout the body.
If you notice a headache coming on and it’s making you feel lethargic or sluggish, like your body is fatigued, try wearing or carrying Carnelian crystals. It can clear energy blockages and lift you up, possibly clearing away the headache.
Sodalite comes in hues of royal blue with streaks of white Calcite. It is associated with the Third Eye chakra and promotes order and calmness in the mind. This stone is also associated with emotional balance and self-esteem.
Wear or carry Sodalite crystals any time you want to promote calmness and logical thinking. It could help to clear away the mental fog that often accompanies a headache or migraine.
