Sleeping with Crystals: A Guide to Better Rest & Wellness


A good night's sleep is essential for health and well-being, but in our modern times, with raised stress levels, bluescreens, and everything that is going on in the world, getting some good zzz's can be tricky business. Rather than turning to pharmaceutical sleep aids, there has been a growing trend in people turning to holistic wellness wonders to help them settle down into restful sleep. Meditation and yoga are on the rise to encourage people to escape the frantic chatter of the mind, and now - crystal healing and heavenly slumber are also becoming synonymous with each other.

There's a belief that certain crystals can be used to assist you in sleep. Crystals are loaded with energetic properties, and some stones will have properties that promote peace, calmness, and solid sleep patterns. Using your favorite crystals for positive energy and better sleep cycles can play a beautiful part in your broader approach to integrating physical, mental, and spiritual health for complete wellness.

The Science and Beliefs Behind Crystals

There is no solid scientific evidence that the properties of crystals have an impact on your sleep cycles. Research is limited in this area, but the belief is that everything in the universe carries vibrational energy (including crystals) and that the vibrational energy of soothing stones can directly influence your own energy fields and promote balance and a deep sense of calmness. Of course, these gentle vibrations can be conducive to stilling the mind at night and encouraging surrender to sleep.

Using powerful crystals for their healing properties is no new fad. Crystals have been used for centuries across various cultures for protection, healing, and bringing you into emotional and spiritual balance. In Chinese culture, Jade is considered to be one of the most important stones for welcoming abundance and luck. Native American tribes called on turquoise and other healing stones in rituals and healing ceremonies, and Ancient Egyptians used Lapis Lazuli to clear up eye problems. 

Benefits of Sleeping with Crystals

Here are some sweet benefits you may expect when you choose to sleep with crystals. 

  • Soothing crystals can boost your sense of inner peace as they still the mind.
  • Crystals can clear negative energy and anxious thinking, which soothes an overactive mind.
  • Protective crystals can keep bad vibrations and bad dreams or night terrors at bay.
  • Spiritual crystals can even assist with lucid dreaming or encourage vivid dreams.
  • Calming crystals may alleviate some insomnia symptoms and help you sleep.

How to Use Crystals for Sleep

Placement Suggestions: Using crystals for sleep all starts with keeping their soothing vibrations close by. You can place the crystal under your pillow to get direct energetic benefits to your sleep cycle and dreams. If you want to have the energy close by, you can also place your crystal on your bedside table or create an altar in the bedroom dedicated to the divine energy of your crystals. 

Incorporating into Bedtime Routines: Ritual plays an important role in our spiritual, mental, emotional, and even physical well-being. You can incorporate your crystals into your bedtime routines in many ways. Taking ten minutes to meditate with your crystals before bed can still the mind and promote relaxation. You can also use your crystals in bath rituals (placing them in the bathroom - not in water) while you bathe.

Selecting and Caring for Crystals: One of the best ways to choose crystals is to see which stones resonate with you personally. Often, we rely on intuition when working with crystals, as certain gems can call to us for specific spiritual reasons. Of course, you can use the crystal guide to work out which stones have the best energy for deep relaxation and to help you sleep. Remember to cleanse and charge your crystals on a regular basis so they can keep humming with their high vibrations. 

Incorporating Crystals into Bedding

There is also the opportunity to turn to Biocrystal® Bedding to help facilitate a better night's sleep. The concept is that bedding is infused with a specific blend of crystals - carefully chosen to enhance your sleep quality. The crystals come in powdered form and are immersed into the bedding via a printed geometric pattern. The idea is that the combination of sleep-encouraging crystals and soft, comfortable bedding will create a sanctuary of slumber.

Precautions and Considerations

Crystals should be used to help complement your health and well-being - not as a replacement for conventional medical treatments when it comes to sleep disorders or other health conditions. Crystals can be celebrated for their gentle energy, sense of calm, and for keeping negative vibrations at bay, but for those who are struggling with restless sleep night after night - you may want to talk to your healthcare provider.

Always keep safety tips in mind when using crystals for sleep. Make sure that if you are placing the crystals in the bed with you, you avoid stones with sharp edges or stones that are too large in size in case they cause discomfort. You should also avoid leaving crystals within reach of babies at bedtime in case of a choking hazard.


Choosing your own crystal dream team can be an amazing way of welcoming emotional balance, easing interrupting thinking at night, and encouraging good quality sleep. Whether you want a deeper connection to the dream world, to encourage lucid dreams or astral travel at night, or if you want a peaceful night free from stressful thinking, many amazing crystals can help you do just that. Explore the world of crystals and find stones that whisper to you sweet dreams and deep slumber. Be sure to keep an open mind, as believing in the effectiveness and having a strong connection with the stone can help the healing powers lead you to soothing sleep.
