The bedroom is an incredibly intimate space where energetic harmony is essential to feeling safe, calm and comfortable. To cultivate this peaceful environment we use decor, scent, colour, and sometimes magic as approaches to achieve a space where we feel whole. We are often at our most vulnerable in our bedrooms, whether sleeping, trying to sleep, interacting with our partners and experiencing a range of emotions related to our day to day lives and relationships. Gain some control over the energy that enters and manifests in your bedroom by utilizing the power of crystal magic. There are many applicable crystals that can offer us vibrational assistance for many different bedroom related needs.
Many of these crystal remedies for energetic imbalances are best utilized when the stone is placed under the pillow or mattress, kept on a bedside table, or used to create an energetic "grid" by placing them in corners of the room. The placement of your crystals should vary, depending on what you’re using the crystal energy for. The most logical crystals for under your pillow or mattress are smaller tumbled or raw crystals, either on their own or paired in a sachet.

You can go with larger pieces if desired for bedside tables, vanities, etc. Larger crystals of course, also double as beautiful statement pieces to accent the decor of the bedroom.
