How to Use Amethyst
Amethyst is thought to affect our dreams, so if you have been suffering from a particularly bad set of bad dreams, try wearing amethyst on your body, or keeping it under your pillow for protection against nightmares, and to bring on softer, more positive dreaming.
As its primary chakra is the Third Eye chakra, meditating upon that area could be particularly beneficial before heading to bed for the night.
Many use this crystal to help with sleep, motivation, or memory, so keeping it close to your work desk is another great way to use it.
