I’m not really sure about you, but as I get a wee older, I find alternative methods to heal various things happening to me, and one way I do this is through gemstones. Today I want to share 10 of the best crystals for healing and boosting your self-love, self-confidence and much more.

I stopped taking medicine and pills a long time ago and am now looking for more natural ways to heal and strengthen my body, soul, and mind. Some say it’s pseudoscience; others say crystals can and do heal.

Whatever the case may be, clearly, you can see that I am a firm believer in using crystals to heal and energize your body, mind, spirit, and so much more. I use them in my daily life for confidence, self-love, and inner peace (and more!).

And you’re here reading this, so I’m not alone.

In this article, we’ll discuss using the best crystals to heal your confidence and creativity (and much more). I’ll also discuss the chakras, as these are extremely important energy fields in our bodies. I promise this won’t be complicated.

The 7 chakras we will be discussing are, starting from the top:

  • crown chakra
  • third eye chakra
  • throat chakra
  • heart chakra
  • solar plexus chakra
  • sacral chakra
  • root chakra

Here’s a great image for you to reference all 7 chakras.

Do healing crystals really work?

I’m no scientist or geologist, but I have first-hand experience that these are the best crystals for healing. I’ve been using them for almost ten years now for all kinds of situations in my life like:

  • low self-esteem
  • when I need inner strength to deal with difficult situations
  • when my energy levels are low
  • when I need mental focus or mental clarity
  • if I have heartbreak
  • when I’m scared, nervous, or anxious
  • for traveling
  • and so much more!

Many of us women in our 50s and beyond have unhealed trauma, uncertainty about the future, deal with loneliness, and a sense of unworthiness, among many other mental and physical issues. Can you imagine having to take a pill for every issue?

Oy. Not me, thanks.

I’d rather hold a crystal gemstone in the palm of my hand than take a pill that will eventually mess up my stomach, as well as other things.

Anyway, I’m not here to preach. I’m here to offer alternative methods for you to consider. Take what you want, and leave the rest.

Who first used the best crystals for healing?

Probably the first historical references to the use of crystals come from the Ancient Sumerians (4th millennium BC), who included crystals in their magic formulas. Crystals were (and are) also used for healing in traditional Chinese Medicine, which dates back to at least 5000 years.

Clearly, they’ve been around for a long time! And still around being used for the same thing – healing!

How to Use crystals for healing

Now, before I share the best crystals for healing with you, we need to discuss how to use them / wear them. Most of my favorite crystals are in jewelry form. I wear gemstone bracelets 24/7, and I interchange my rings and crystal pendants, depending on the day.

You can use gemstone jewelry as well or get smooth palm stones or whatever. When you are out buying your stones, use your intuition. That is the most important. Buy the stone that calls to you.

You can also buy crystal geodes and place them on a table in any room to enhance or heal the energy of that room.

I would also suggest picking up a few clear quartz crystals to complement whatever crystal you buy, as clear quartz amplifies the healing properties of your other stones.

I have listed stones here from Amazon and a super cool site I recently partnered with, Conscious Items. You can see more of their stuff here. It’s all beyond beautiful!!!!

Without further ado, here we go, and in no particular order of importance…

10 Best Crystals For Healing

I wonder if it’s just me, but as I age, I notice I start lacking a lot of things like courage, confidence, self-worth, and more. The crystals I am about to share with you now all help me:

  • regain my personal power,
  • strengthen my inner power,
  • help eliminate negative energies and all negative feelings
  • give me a confidence boost
  • give me more courage (bravery)
  • and help me calm the eff down

I can’t imagine a day without crystals.

1 Tiger’s Eye – Root Chakra

Not only one of the most beautiful but also one of the most powerful and best crystals for healing is the tiger’s eye stone. I have so much jewelry in this stone. This is also the most popular stone of courage and confidence. This would also be a great stone to wear on a first date!

Here is a small list of the healing properties of the tiger’s eye:

  • protects against negative energy,
  • strengthens self-worth
  • restores confidence
  • boosts courage
  • manifest wealth

2 Carnelian – Sacral Chakra

I’d love to say this is my fave but honestly, I love them all. Carnelian is such a high-energy stone and brings me so much mental clarity and focus when I’m about to start new creative endeavors with my work. This stone just brings me so much joy.

Here are some of the amazing benefits of this stone:

  • sparks creativity
  • boosts confidence
  • empowers you
  • great to boost sexual energy

3 Rose Quartz – Heart and Throat Chakras

Okay, okay. Rose quartz is probably my favorite stone; I have it all over my house. While it is definitely the stone of unconditional love, it also does other things.

Here are the other healing properties of the love stone, aka the rose quartz crystal:

  • helps you love yourself more
  • improves relationships with family members and others
  • boosts confidence
  • helps find calm in the chaos

4 Black Tourmaline – Root Chakra

This is one powerful crystal when it comes to protecting you from negative energy. The black tourmaline is a protective stone that can be used with other stones. It helps you to feel grounded, protected, and safe. It’s also known as the calming stone.

It is also good for:

  • helping you calm anxious thoughts
  • boosting metabolism
  • creating inner calm and peace

5 Lapis Lazuli – Third Eye Chakra

This is the perfect stone to help you ‘find your voice and see more clearly.’ It gives you the courage and confidence to speak your truth and protects you against negative attacks.

Also known as the wisdom stone, it is great for these other things:

  • improves communication
  • helps with inner clarity (mental focus)
  • stimulates spiritual power and growth

6 Red Jasper – Root Chakra

Another beautiful stone (aren’t they all? ha!), red jasper, is a true grounding stone. It helps you balance your emotions and relax.

It’s also a great stone for these things:

  • good stress management stone
  • helps calm you down in difficult times
  • brings tranquility

7 Citrine – Solar Plexus Chakra

Oh gosh, how I love Citrine! Not only is it one of the best crystals for confidence and creativity, but it’s also a sunny, happy, and prosperous stone! Often called the merchant’s stone, many store owners will keep one in the cash register to promote a successful business.

Besides being the stone of creativity, the citrine is also known for:

  • good luck
  • improves creative energy
  • great stone to boost confidence
  • increases optimism and makes you cheery

8 Orange Calcite – Solar Plexus and Sacral Chakras

Not only is this powerful stone pretty with its brilliant orange colors, but it’s also really good for dealing with emotional issues. It’s a very energizing stone that helps balance emotions.

It’s also really good for:

  • helps get rid of negative emotions
  • letting go of old habits and toxic behaviors
  • helps you see things differently
  • enhances leadership qualities

9 Spirit Quartz – Solar Plexus Chakra

Your eyes will never see anything more stunning than a spirit quartz. This is a wonderful stone that works well with any stone to amplify its healing properties, as the spirit quartz is just a cluster of clear quartz crystals.

Spirit Quartz is basically a Quartz crystal, or group of Quartz crystals, with a naturally formed Druzy Quartz layer on the outer surface which formed with the Quartz crystal. Spirit Quartz is often enhanced with a vapor film deposit surface coating to give it an iridescent look.


It is a very protective stone that will transform negative energy into positive energy. It is a harmonious stone that will bring peace to any situation.

10 Amethyst – Crown Chakra

This list of the best crystals for healing wouldn’t be complete without the beautiful Amethyst. This powerful stone is well known for its soothing, calming properties, not to mention that it looks fabulous everywhere. I can literally stare into an amethyst geode all day.

It’s one of the better stones for confidence and creativity, in my opinion, because it helps you ‘be here now’ so you don’t worry or bother with things going on around you, especially negative things.

Here is a small list of what amethyst will do for you:

  • relieves stress
  • helps with mood swings
  • gets rid of anxiety and
  • gives you more confidence

How to Use the Best Crystals For Healing

As you can see, these confidence crystals are also good for many other things, but how do we use them?

Good question!

A lot of Reiki masters or energy healers will use these stones on each of your chakras while they are working on you and clearing your energies. Using them for personal use is a little different.

If you know you are going to be in a situation where you will need to remain calm, focused, and centered, an amethyst stone is the one you will take with you that day.

Whether you have amethyst jewelry or just a palm stone, rub it gently and envision yourself remaining calm, knowing that things will go well.

These stones work best with powerful intentions set by you! Remember, everything is energy, and we want the least amount of negative energy around us and the most positive energy, right?

If I’m feeling slightly less than happy, I’ll wear my Carnelian pendant. If I’m going somewhere alone and I need courage, I’ll put on my tiger’s eye ring or pendant.

You use your crystals in whatever way that calls to you.

And I can’t forget to tell you that it’s important to cleanse your stones often! I cleanse mine on each full moon to clear any negative energy they may have absorbed and to recharge them.

Final Thoughts on the Best Crystals for Healing

I always tell people, don’t discount what has worked for thousands of years. If you don’t believe in any of the healing properties of crystals, buy some because they’re gorgeous, and then watch how your life magically becomes beautiful.
