There is a variety of crystals you can use to balance your crown chakra. Some of the best stones and crystals to balance the crown chakra include howlite, amethyst, and clear quartz. These crystals provide you with spiritual guidance.

If you plan to put your stones and crystals in direct contact with your skin, you should buy tumble stones, also known as polished stones. They are slightly coated with polish providing them with a protective layer that stops them from reacting with your skin. If you are unsure whether a crystal may react or not with your skin, buy the safest option.

Here are the crystals you can use to balance your crown chakra:

Howlite has an extensive list of healing properties. The spiritual qualities of howlite are to open the mind and connect the consciousness with other dimensions and timelines. Howlite allows you to experience time differently and connect you with past life experiences.
Howlite can also help ease anger, and frustration, overcome selfishness patterns and improve communication.
The Zodiac association for Howlite is Gemini provides it with its communicative energy.

Amethyst is an amazing healer stone, that draws positive energy from the universe into your life experience. Amethyst can turn negative energy into feelings of love and connection.

Amethyst brings serenity, alleviating stress and anxiety, which allows you to embrace a deeper connection with life. Amethyst can also connect you with your third eye, allowing you to tap into your inner wisdom and the higher wisdom of the universe to receive the messages you need.

Amethyst has been used to treat headaches, insomnia, anxiety, and physical pain. It is thought that soothes the nervous system by working on the pineal and pituitary glands.

Clear Quartz
Clear quartz is the crystal of infinite possibilities, it is known as the master healer because it can be programmed to emit any healing energy, which makes it useful for balancing all chakras. Usually, you will hold the crystal in your hand and ask it for assistance.

Clear quartz can balance the whole body, improve your immune system, connect you to your inner self, raise your energetic vibration, enhance your psychic ability and have a clear connection with infinite wisdom.

When using Amethyst and Clear Quartz together, they can enhance each other bringing more balance to the Crown chakra, which in turn can connect you with the universe. Clear quartz works by raising your vibration, and Amethyst acts as the gateway between the physical world and the spiritual realm.

You can use stones and crystals as jewellery in the form of necklaces, bracelets, anklets, rings or pendants with any of the stones and crystals that balance the crown chakra to keep constant energy flowing to your chakra.

You can carry the crystals with you by placing the stones in your pocket or purse. You can also use the stones and crystals as decoration in your home or office and put them in areas where you spend most of your time.

2. Clear the Space for Your Crystal Healing Session

Before you have a crown chakra balancing session, you should prepare and clean the space.

The space you choose to have a crystal healing session should be comfortable, quiet, and without drafts so that you can fully concentrate and be present during the healing session.

You may do the session yourself or ask someone to help you place the crystals on your body.

To cleanse the space, you can burn some incense and allow the smoke to fill the space. The incenses recommended for cleansing the space are:

  • White sage clears the air of energetic impurities.
  • Palo santo clears all the energy of the space, both positive and negative. Be mindful of ventilating the area very well after using palo santo, then invoke positive energy by burning white sage.

3. Cleanse and Prepare the Crystals for Your Healing Session

When you acquire crystals, you should clean them from any energy they may have picked in their journey.

There are several techniques to cleanse your crystals, one of the safest for any crystals is using brown rice.

Use a glass or plastic container to avoid any reaction between the crystal and the material of the container. Put the rice in the container, and the crystals on top, leaving overnight. Discard the rice in the morning.

Once your crystals are cleared, charge them to unlock all of their energy. To charge your crystals, you can place them under sunlight, which will excite the atoms in the crystals.

If you plan to place the crystals directly onto the skin, warm up the crystals under the light of a lamp, or place a towel on a heater and put the crystals on top. This can also be useful if there is no sunlight when you are planning to do crystal healing.

4. Place the Crystals in Specific Areas to Heal Your Crown Chakra

Before starting your healing session, you can set an oil diffuser to create an ambience and enhance the balancing of your crown chakra.

When choosing which crystals to use for your crown chakra healing, consider the properties of each crystal and see what you would like to alleviate, eliminate or balance.

You can use one crystal or a combination of crystals according to their properties to balance the crown chakra.

Lay down in a quiet place and keep warm during the session.
Place an amethyst crystal on your forehead, and put a howlite at each side of the head and clear quartz in the area above the top of your head.

To bring some grounding, you can hold a lava stone or smoky quartz in the palm of your hands.

5. Let the Crystals Do the Healing

Be open to feeling and experiencing your emotions. Allow the crystals to heal your crown chakra.

During the crystal healing session, you can choose to be in silence, observing the thoughts and feelings that may come and go during this experience. You could also play a guided meditation, a mantra, affirmations or a binaural beat for your crown chakra.

Leave the crystals to do their work for 10-15 mins.

Close your eyes and breathe deeply during your healing session. Connect to the crystals and be open to receiving their guidance. During the crystal healing session, you may fall asleep, so asking someone to check on you to finish your session may be a good idea, or set up a gentle alarm to let you know when the time is up.

6. Close Your Crystal Healing Session

When your chakra balancing session is over, stay there for a minute or two to ground and process whatever experience you had. Get up gently, continue with your day and drink plenty of water.

Once you finish your crown chakra healing session, clean your crystals from the energy they absorbed. You can do this by using a glass bowl filled with a mix of citrine and hematite chips. Put the crystals you used during your session on the chips mixture and leave them overnight.

7. Reflect on Your Crown Chakra Crystal Healing Session

After each crown chakra healing session, it may help you write down how you felt before, during and after the session.

It is not uncommon to feel worse after a crystal healing session, this may be the case because the crystals draw out the stuck energy from your body. This is also part of the healing process. Continue having more sessions depending on how you feel, if your symptoms get better, try one or two sessions more.

When healing your crown chakra you may expect changes with:

  • Self-confidence
  • Intuition
  • Your connection with life and the universe
  • Trust, you know you are in the right place at the right time
  • Psychic ability
  • Your life purpose
  • Your physical and mental energy

If you plan to work through all your chakras, it is a good idea to have a journal.
You can divide the journal into 7 parts with the colours of the chakras. Whenever you do a healing session for each chakra, make an entry that includes the date, time, the healing method (e.g. crystals, asanas, meditation, oils, etc.), and your experience before, during and after each chakra balancing session.


Chakra healing can be achieved through different holistic methods. Crystal healing is a technique used to bring body, mind and soul to balance through the harmonisation of chakras.

Each crystal used during chakra healing has specific properties which work with certain chakra.

The crown chakra connects our physical body with the spiritual realm. When the crown chakra is balanced, you feel connected with the universe, you have a strong sense of belonging and trust that what happens is what needs to happen.

Using Howlite, Amethyst, and Clear quartz to bring balance to your crown chakra can be a slow or fast process, depending on how quickly your body responds to the healing. It is ok if your body needs more time to align the frequencies of your crown chakra.

Be patient and consistent with the use of stones and crystals to bring balance to your crown chakra. Recognise and be grateful to yourself for allowing the time and space to balance your energies and bring healing to your mind and body.
