Tumbled Lepidolite


"Hello. I have a condition called trichotillomania, where I compulsively pull out hairs. Can you recommend any crystals to hold in my hand, rub with my fingers, etc., when I am trying to stop pulling or resist pulling? Thank you. You all have great knowledge and intuition in your recommendations."



Hi there S,

Thanks for reaching out to us and I'd love to offer you crystal suggestions for support!

The first two that come to my mind is Lepidolite and Black Tourmaline:
Lepidolite helps shift and restructure old energy patterns and brings light and hope to a situation. It's also one of the most common stones that many turn to in order to relieve anxiety and stress. It could help to have a piece which you could grab and rub to ease.

Black Tourmaline can be used to protect against stress and minimize obsessive thoughts. It's another one that you can hold to bring calm and bring you back into your body instead of possibly solely focusing on pulling out your hair.

Amethyst is also known to be great stone for compulsive disorders or habits:
Amethyst relieves stress and because it is known of the stone of sobriety, I've found it helps bring self-awareness, restructure your internal patterns and anything you find yourself doing habitually/often. It gives a sense of inner peace which may ease the intense obsession/compulsions.

Take a look at which of the stones stand out to you and go with those. I'd recommend following what your intuition already suggests: holding it when you feel the urge to pull your hair and rub your stone while trying to bring steadiness to your breath. It's definitely worth a try.

Wishing you the best of luck and I hope this helps :)

  Thank you! This is very helpful. I've only been working with black tourmaline and it's not very effective. I will give the other two crystals a try.  (Submitted by: Lety on May 16, 2022)
