5 Simple Methods for Cleansing Your Crystals

Everything is energy. Just as we are energy and need to cleanse our energetic bodies, so to, do we need to ensure we are working with clean crystal energy. Just like us, crystals absorb, protect and work their own energetic magic with us to help heal, amplify our intentions and often shift through some heavy energy work. So giving them an "energy detox" is really important. Otherwise, they will be either doing the minimum or nothing at all.

Here are a few ways you can give you crystals the TLC they deserve, bringing them back feeling fresh, light, and ready to work with you again.

Sunlight or Moonlight Spa
When you see your crystals starting to look a little dull and not as vibrant, return them to nature. Let your crystals bathe outside in light of the sun or moon for at least 4 hours. Especially with the large crystals in your home, although it can be a process, make sure that you place them outside to clear and recharge at least once a month. If you are using sunlight, be sure your crystals are not photo-sensitive.

A Crystallized Cleansing with Quartz or Selenite
Be a crystal matchmaker and pair your crystal with either a selenite or quartz crystal! Both of these crystals have the unique ability to cleanse, recharge and purify the energy of other crystals, without diminishing their own energy. Lay your crystals and tumbled stones on a piece of Clear quartz or a selenite charging plate for 6+ hours. We like to make it a practice with the jewelry and crystals that we use daily to place them atop these cleansing crystals before bed each night. Then, when you wake in the morning, they will be ready to work with you.

Sound Clearing
Not only does sound clearing cleanse, but it ‘retunes’ your crystals to your own energy signature. After a couple rounds around the perimeter of the bowl's rim, and once you hear the sound wave ignited loudly echoing into the room, place your wooden wand down, and pick up the crystal that needs to be cleansed. Pass the crystal through the center of the bowl (careful not to actually touch it and disrupt the sound), carefully rotating it around until the sound waves grow faint. This will last roughly about 30 seconds, and then your crystal is cleansed and ready to use. Alternatively, you can place the crystals in the bottom of the bowl while playing them, just be sure to have a layer of protection between the crystals and the bowl.

When in Doubt, Smoke It Out
Not only will burning Sage, Frankincense or Palo Santo make your home smell great, they’ll have your crystals feeling great, too. Immerse your crystals in the sacred smoke until it seems to come back to life. This is likely the best option for larger, harder to pick up crystals. Simply use your a feather or your hand to waft the smoke over and around the crystal.

Return to Nature
We could all use an energetic reset in nature every now and then. To give your crystal that revitalizing pleasure, place it on the soil or even bury it within the Earth for 24 hours. If you have a clean stream, creek or body of water nearby, submerge your crystal in the running water for a few moments, making sure to do so with the intention to purify in mind. Note: make sure you are mindful when placing certain crystals in water; many of the softer ones that are salt-based will dissolve when they get wet.
