Amethyst is widely known for its beautiful range of lavender and royal purple tones and is truly a stunning crystal to look at as well as working with. The violet tones within the crystal help to open, soothe and protect the Crown Chakra and the Third Eye Chakra. The reason why we want to use Amethyst for these two chakras is apparent when we see what they rule over. The Crown Chakra is where we receive messages from Spirit and acts as our connection to Source Energy while the Third Eye Chakra helps us to truly see with our inner knowledge, intuition, and to look into things with conscious awareness. Amethyst works in a number of ways to help these two Chakras which are truly beneficial and has a variety of other properties.
Amethyst is often recommended for those who are recovering from addictions of all kinds as it helps you to focus and channel your self determination energy. It provides psychic and spiritual protection by shielding you with the power of hope and possibility. Amethyst helps us to remove the illusions of ego and to see farther into the self, activating and opening the Third Eye and Crown Chakras.
Amethyst has traditionally been used to calm and soothe red, irritated skin. I recommend the Amethyst Facial Roller or a super smooth Amethyst tumble for this. It helps to release the heat from the skin and encourages healing. Keeping an Amethyst in your boudoir, closet, and around your beauty protects is also thought as blessing them in protection and rejuvenation energy. Amethyst is a wonderful crystal and pairs amazingly with just about any other crystal. Think of this crystal like a warrior in a peaceful garden; it remains calm and loving, and when needed it goes on the defensive and offensive. Now you know how powerful Amethyst is, hopefully you will look at them differently now and incorporate it into your collection.
