Caring for Crystals

Updated: Jun 22, 2020

Make sure to Cleanse and charge your crystal according to which method it needs. (Some crystals can't get wet!)

1. Natural Water

Placing under rainfall, or submerging them in bodies of water. (tap water from your faucet will do as well)


2. Sunlight or Moonlight

The sun will give yang solar energy that balances the stone’s yin energy. For stones that are susceptible to discoloration, you can put them out at dawn for an hour.

Moonlight is a more delicate, but very potent with a full moon. it can increase the stone’s vibrations.


3. Earth

You can use the elements of the earth by burying your stones underground for a full day.


4. Fire

You can use fire or smoke to cleanse your stones by quickly burning your stones or smudging. Direct fire immediately burns away any negative energy and is done in a matter of seconds over a candle. Smudging can be done with sage sticks, palo santo, or commercial incense like sandalwood or cedar, which is known to remove negativity.


5. Salt (Salt Water)

A salt water bath is one of the most common methods to clean your gemstones.


Soak your stones overnight in water with a pinch of sea salt. If you have access to Sea Water that is best. Make sure to give them a rinse in clear water after the salt bath to remove any residue.

It is not always good to use salt water to cleanse stones as the salt can damage certain Stones


6. Other Stones

Certain crystals and clusters (like quartz or amethyst) have the ability to absorb and regenerate other stones. Selenite is mostly used for this.

lay the stones on selenite for at least six hours. Selenite and clear quartz clusters actually amplify the energy of your other stones. They have the ability to absorb, neutralize, and then recharge.


7. Meditation

You can balance your own energies by blowing balanced breath onto your jewels. It’s important to state an intention so you can refuel your gemstone after you clean it. If you practice this form of crystal cleansing regularly, it will come naturally.
