Cleansing crystals after you buy them is very important, because it removes any negative energies the crystal may have absorbed. It’s a good idea to cleanse them after every healing treatment as well, to maximize their healing properties.
There are several different methods for cleansing crystals and stones, depending on the types of crystals in question.
When choosing your preferred method, keep in mind that some crystals are quite fragile and easily damaged, while others dissolve in water.
Citrine, Kyanite and Azeztulite are self-cleaning stones. Carnelian and Clear Quartz can cleanse other crystals for you. Just place a smaller crystal that needs clearing on top of them.
Maintaining regular cleansing crystals rituals can help you connect to your crystals more deeply, which will intensify the benefits you’ll receive.
Whichever method you choose, hold the intention that the process will eliminate all negativity and restore your stone’s healing power.
Water Method for Cleansing Crystals
Before using this method, research your crystal to ensure water won’t dissolve it.
If your crystal is not friable or jointed, or water soluble, you can cleanse it by holding it under a running tap. You can also put it in salt water, or place on a sea shore and let the waves gently clean and rejuvenate it.
Sunlight/Moonlight Method for Cleansing Crystals
Just a few hours in direct sunlight or moonlight will recharge your crystals’ batteries, so to speak, and renew their ability to heal.
Some precautions are necessary. Be sure the stone will not fade or otherwise be damaged by sunlight, and ensure that reflected rays will not start a fire.
When in doubt, set your stones out to bathe in the moonlight, especially on a full moon.
Smudge/White Light Method
Smudge your crystals by waving sage smoke over them, or visualize them surrounded by purifying white Divine Light.
Energy Cleansing Method
Energy work such as Reiki is ideal for cleansing crystals, simply hold them in one hand while administering reiki with the other.
Some crystals, such as friable ones, can be cleansed by immersing them in sea salt overnight. Be sure to brush all salt off again to prevent damage.
With a little TLC your crystals and gems can remain beautiful and effective for a lifetime!
