How we use Amethyst

Here are numerous ways to integrate Amethyst into your daily routine to harness its beneficial properties, including how we utilize it at Yoga & Oils:


  • Wearing amethyst Jewellery, such as necklaces, bracelets, or rings, allows you to keep the stone close to your body throughout the day. This can help promote a sense of calm and balance.


  • Place an amethyst crystal near you or hold it in your hand during meditation to enhance your spiritual practice. Its calming energy can help quiet the mind and deepen your connection to your inner self.

Sleep aid

  • Trouble sleeping? Place an amethyst crystal under your pillow, and it might just help you catch those Z's and keep the nightmares at bay. It's like having a protective dream shield.

Room Decor

  • Displaying amethyst crystals in your home can create a peaceful and harmonious environment. You can place them in your living room, bedroom, or meditation space to promote positive energy and relaxation.

Creativity and Mental Clarity

  • Need a creativity boost or some mental clarity? Keep a piece of amethyst on your desk. Linked to the third eye & crown chakra, this beauty will bring clarity, inspire fresh ideas, and get those creative gears turning.


  • Lastly, if you're looking for a meaningful gift, amethyst is a fantastic choice. It symbolises protection, spirituality, and inner peace. So, whether it's a birthday, anniversary, or any special occasion, an amethyst gift is a beautiful gesture.
