The Importance of Cleansing Crystals
Cleansing With Water
Water neutralizes any negative energy stored inside your crystals and returns it back to the earth. Although natural running water, like a stream is best, you can also rinse your stone under a faucet.
If you're near the ocean, consider collecting a bowl of fresh salt water or taking your crystals down for a dip. Otherwise, mix a tablespoon of sea, rock, or table salt into a bowl of water.
Make sure that your stone is completely submerged, and allow it to soak for a few hours. Rinse and pat dry when complete.
Just remember that not all crystals are safe in water.
Cleansing With Smoke
The smoke from sage or palo santo carries away negative energy from the crystals and your environment.
All you need to do it pass the crystals through the smoke for 20-30 seconds.
Cleansing With The Sun
The sun is used to burn off old energy and fills your crystals with light. Just place your crystals in a nice sunny spot.
Just remember that not all crystals should be left in the sun.
Cleansing With Selenite
Selenite is a powerful crystal known for its cleansing and purifying energy.
Place your crystals on top of any form of selenite to cleanse and charge.
Cleansing With The Moon
The moon can be used for cleansing and charging.
Placing your crystals in direct light of the full moon is a great way to release negative energy and charge them with the magnetic energy of the moon.
