How to Cleanse your Crystals


Cleansing and clearing crystals is a common practice to remove any accumulated negative energies and restore their natural energy vibrations. Here are several methods you can use to cleanse and clear your crystals:


Water Cleansing:

Method: Rinse your crystals under running water (preferably natural, such as a stream or river) for a few minutes. Visualize the water carrying away any negative energies.

Suitable for: Hard, non-porous crystals (avoid using this method for porous or soft stones).


Salt Water Soak:

Method: Submerge your crystals in a bowl of water mixed with sea salt. Leave them for a few hours or overnight. Rinse them thoroughly afterward.

Suitable for: Quartz, amethyst, citrine, and other hard stones (avoid using this method for soft or porous stones).


Salt Bed:

Method: Place your crystals on a bed of sea salt and leave them for several hours or overnight. Brush off the salt afterward.

Suitable for: Hard crystals that are not sensitive to salt.

Selenite Charging:

Method: Place your crystals on or near a selenite charging plate or selenite wand. Selenite has a powerful cleansing energy that can clear other crystals.

Suitable for: Most crystals, as selenite is generally safe for all types.



Method: Pass your crystals through the smoke of cleansing herbs like sage, cedar, or palo santo. Visualize the smoke purifying the crystals.

Suitable for: Most crystals, but be cautious with crystals that can be damaged by smoke or heat.


Sunlight and Moonlight:

Method: Place your crystals in direct sunlight or moonlight for several hours. Visualize the light purifying and energizing the crystals.

Suitable for: Most crystals, but be cautious with crystals that may fade in sunlight (e.g., amethyst).


Visualization and Intent:

Method: Hold the crystal in your hands, close your eyes, and focus on sending positive, cleansing energy to the crystal. Visualize any negativity leaving the crystal.

Suitable for: All crystals and especially suitable when other methods may not be applicable.


Sound Cleansing:

Method: Use sound vibrations from singing bowls, bells, or tuning forks to clear the energy around your crystals.

Suitable for: Most crystals, but be cautious with extremely fragile or sensitive crystals.


Remember to trust your intuition when choosing a cleansing method for your crystals. Additionally, some crystals may have specific care instructions, so it’s a good idea to research the particular needs of each crystal in your collection.
