7 Ways To Cleanse And Energize Your Crystals

Why it’s important to clear your crystals?

When you first receive your crystal, it has been passed around and holds the energy of where ever and who ever  it came from. Unless you took it from the earth yourself. If the previous owner of the crystal has any negative energies or vibrations, it  will be stored in there, and passed to you.


Frequency of cleansing. 

If you’ve already cleansed them when you acquired them and have used them for a long time, it’s a good idea to regularly give them a good cleaning. Who doesn’t like a good cleaning? This is important if you do a lot of healing or energy work, or if you are you’re using them all of the time. Especially  if you’re using negativity-deflecting stones like Hematite, who is constantly working to turn  negative energies into positive. If it’s jewelry you wear regularly, make sure to clean them once a week.

If you use them for healing work, clear them after each session or treatment.

If you’re using them for deep soul work, cleanse them often.  Sometimes you can tell by the way the crystal’s appearance has changed, the feel in your hand, or how the vibrations feels.

Clearing your stone.

Cleansing and clearing your crystals is very important. There can be several people handling the crystal until it has reached you, good or bad energies. Here are a few ways to do this:

1. Sea salt and water

Sea salt and water is a great way to rid your stone of unwanted  energies. If the stone is not brittle, using sea salt will not harm the stone. When using this method  leave the stone in the water overnight. You can add other herbs like sage or lavender to the water to enhance the cleansing effect. Caution:Crystals that contain iron, such as Hematite, Magnetite, and Lodestone may oxidize when submerged in water.

2. Running water

Using running water is also a very effective way of cleansing your stone. Put  the intention out  by asking the Universe to remove all negativity. One way to try is to imagine white light around the stone cleaning and filling it. Caution: Some crystals should NEVER be submerged in water. Some crystal can  be damaged, or dissolve.  The following Crystals should not be placed in water are: Selenite, Malachite, Lapis Lazuli, Fluorite, Calcite, Desert Rose, Labradorite, or Halite.

3. Other Stones

Stones like Selenite,  Carnelian and Clear Quartz clean other stones. It’s really simple. All you have to do is add them to where you store your stones and it does all the work for you.

4. Smudging

You can also use sage to clear your healing stones. While smudging your stones, it’s important to put intention in to them. Smudging by taking a sacred herb, white sage , sweetgrass or  incense.  Lighting it and  letting it smoke, and then holding the crystal in the smoke for a few seconds.

5. The Earth

Mother Earth will  recharge the crystals  with her vibrational energy. Make sure you have a marker in the ground so you know where to find them after cleansing for 24 hours! You can also place them in earth in a container to more easily find them. Caution: Make sure your crystals are on the  hardness rating of at least 6 or higher.  Any  moisture in the earth may  damage your crystals. Also dirt may get trapped in any cracks.

6. Moonlight

Many stones love the moonbeams! To get the most of the moonbeams  lay them out during the Full Moon.  A strong Full Moon will last for 3 days. Your crystals will still get the love it even if it’s cloudy. Caution: Make sure that any crystals  that are low in hardness  are brought back inside before any rain.

7. Sunlight

Sunlight is another  great way to bathe your crystals, especially any that are red, yellow, or orange. Carnelian and Sunstone love to sunbathe! Set them out in the sun for a few hours, to help them recharge. Caution : Sunlight can make some crystals fade or change color. These crystals should not be placed under sunlight: Amethyst, Celestite, Citrine, Fluorite, Kunzite, Rose Quartz, Smoky Quartz, Topaz, and Turquoise are just a few.

Personally I love using Selenite to cleanse and energize my crystals. All I have to do is place it by what ever crystal I went cleansed and go about my day. I find this is the easiest for me. My other favorites are Moonlight and Sunlight. You do have to be more careful and make sure that the crystal and withstand both cleansing elements.
