Crystals I Love For Headache Relief

amethyst lapis headache best crystals

As a longtime sufferer of migraines, I have always found that keeping away from certain foods eased up on my misery. Chocolate, onions, yogurt, processed meats, certain nuts, hard cheeses, red wine.....on my list of "stay away" foods.

I'd never really thought about using crystals and gemstones as a form of relief. That is until a customer requested a bracelet addressing relief from her frequent headaches. So I put hands to the keyboard and did my research. 

Crystals for Headaches and Migraines

Here's what I came up with and what led to the design of our Headache + Migraine Relief Bracelet. Not only with metaphysical benefits, but chakra opening benefits too.

Crystal Quartz

Crystal Quartz is a stone of clarity. With clarity comes understanding, the ability to let go and a peaceful, less stressed mind.  

Crystal Quartz opens all of our chakras, but especially the Crown chakra, the epicenter of headaches. 

Selenite for Headaches, Migraines


Selenite is a master at unclogging any stagnant energies, and typically headaches are all about blocked energies. With those blocked energies go negative energies too, and Selenite helps send them on their way. (Good Riddance!) It's also great for relieving pain. 

Here too, the Crown Chakra is opened and aired out. 


Thought not on everyone's top 10 list of crystals for headaches, I think Turquoise is a must have. Turquoise helps in expressing emotions, thoughts and feelings that we often "stuff down". Stuffing anything internally simply adds to tension in the body and stress. Turquoise is a GREAT mind clearer as well as a pain reliever.  It's also used for improving blood circulation, another great benefit for headache relief. 

Turquoise opens and balances the Throat and Heart Chakras, making for better ability to communicate with compassion for yourself as well as those around you. 

Chrysocolla Headache relief


Chrysocolla is all about emotions here. What woman hadn’t had mood swings depending on the time of the month too? This crystal helps in balancing hormone levels. Another way Chryscolla settles emotions is in easing anxiety, worries and stress with it's calming energies. 

Chrysocolla opens Heart Chakra bringing in nurturing and feminine energies. Energies that help you slow down and soften tension. 

Lapis Lazuli

Lapis made my list because of it's ability to release and repel negative energy. It's also perfect for raising spiritual awareness, bringing along with it, inner peace. Lapis is also used as a pain reliever. 

The main reason I chose Lapis is for it's Third Eye Chakra Energy. An over active or blocked Third Eye can increase headache occurrences. Lapis brings balance to the Third Eye Chakra. 

Amethyst headache crystal

Last but not least, Amethyst

Amethyst is a rock star at calming and refreshing your aura and shifting energy. Perfect for night time headaches because it allows you to sleep better.  Amethyst promotes serenity, balance and peace, soothing the mind and reducing stress levels. 

Just as with Crystal Quartz and Selenite do, Amethyst opens up the Crown Chakra, an important factor in ease the pressure and tension in your head.

Do you have a favorite crystal for relieving headaches and migraines? I'd love to hear!

All the best,
