It’s time to give your crystals a deep energy cleaning.

Crystals are no exception because all things need cleaning.  

Like us humans, crystals are social beings and need a change of air

Crystals tend to hold on to negative energy, whether it comes from someone else, from anything in the environment or even from you, nothing is worse than carrying around negative energy.  

We’re just like our crystals!  We need to take good care of ourselves consistently in order for us to function effectively.

 For crystals to create positive energy and harmony, you need to cleanse them frequently on a regular basis. 

Why You should Cleanse Crystals?

Cleansing crystals is essential for maintaining their positive energy. Healers believe that over time, crystals can absorb negative energy from their surroundings and from people handling them. This energy buildup can diminish the crystal’s natural vibrancy and effectiveness.

Unlike physical cleaning with soap and water, cleansing crystals focuses on their energetic purity. This process helps restore their original state, ensuring they function at their best. When you acquire new crystals, it’s crucial to cleanse them immediately. This practice removes any old energy they might have collected from previous handlers or environments.

Regular cleansing is equally important, especially if you use your crystals frequently. For crystals used in healing, clean them both before and after each session to keep their energy pure and potent. Depending on your usage, you might cleanse them weekly or monthly to maintain their optimal condition. By making cleansing a routine, you ensure your crystals are always ready to support you with their best energy.

How Do you Know When a Crystal Needs to be Cleansed?

Crystals are powerful tools that can absorb and emit energy. Over time, they can become saturated with negative energy, which affects their effectiveness. It’s essential to know when your crystals need cleansing to keep them in top condition. Here are some signs that indicate it’s time to cleanse your crystals. Regular cleansing helps maintain their energy and ensures they continue to support you positively. Below, we’ll explore key indicators that your crystals need a refresh.

Dull Appearance

If your crystal looks less vibrant or has lost its sparkle, it may need cleansing. Crystals can collect dust and physical dirt, but an energetic cleanse is different. A dull crystal might be a sign it’s holding onto negative energy. Regularly inspect your crystals for changes in appearance. If they look cloudy or less colorful, it’s time for a cleanse. Keeping your crystals looking their best helps maintain their energetic properties.

Change in Feel

Crystals can feel different when they need cleansing. They might become heavy, sticky, or rough. These physical sensations indicate a buildup of negative energy. Pay attention to how your crystals feel in your hand. If they feel off or uncomfortable, they likely need a cleanse. This change in feel is a clear sign that your crystal’s energy needs refreshing. Keeping them energetically clean ensures they continue to work effectively.

Shift in Personal Energy

Your own energy can reflect the state of your crystals. If you feel unusually tired, irritable, or anxious when near your crystals, they might need cleansing. Your mood and energy levels are closely tied to the energy of your crystals. A shift in how you feel can indicate it’s time to cleanse them. Regularly checking in with your own energy can help you keep your crystals in good condition. Ensuring they are energetically clean supports your well-being.

Regularly cleansing your crystals ensures they remain powerful tools for positive energy. Whether they look dull, feel different, or affect your mood, these signs indicate it’s time for a cleanse. By keeping your crystals clean, you maintain their effectiveness and support your own energy balance.

How to Cleanse Crystals? 

There are many different methods to clean your gemstones.

I’ve read some practices so I wanted to take some time to share with you what I believe a few of the most effective and convenient methods to try out on your crystals. 

Cleanse Crystals With RUNNING WATER

Using running water is one of the simplest and most effective ways to cleanse crystals. This method works well because water is a natural element that can wash away negative energy. When you cleanse crystals with running water, you are not just cleaning them physically but also energetically.

To cleanse your crystals, hold them under a stream of running water. This can be from a tap or, even better, a natural source like a river or stream. Let the water flow over the crystals for a few minutes. While doing this, visualize the negative energy being washed away and replaced with positive energy.

Running water has a natural purifying effect. It helps to neutralize any negative vibrations and refresh the crystal’s energy. This method is especially effective for hard stones like quartz and amethyst. However, be cautious with softer stones, as prolonged exposure to water can damage them.

Regularly using running water to cleanse crystals ensures they stay energetically clean and ready to support you. This simple practice can make a significant difference in maintaining the positive energy of your crystals.

Typically, natural crystals in the Quartz family such as:

Clear Quartz, Rose Quartz, Smoky Quartz and Citrine.

Cleanse Crystals With SUNLIGHT

Sunlight is a powerful and natural way to cleanse crystals. The energy from the sun helps to purify and recharge your crystals, making them vibrant and effective again. To cleanse crystals with sunlight, simply place them in direct sunlight for a few hours. Morning sunlight is ideal because it’s gentle yet strong enough to clear negative energy.

The sun’s rays act as a natural purifier. They help to dissolve and release any negative vibrations that your crystals may have absorbed. This method works well for most crystals, especially those that thrive on high energy, like clear quartz and citrine. And many crystals love to sunbathe, especially ones that are red, orange, or yellow like Carnelian and Sunstone. However, be cautious with colored crystals like amethyst or rose quartz, as prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can fade their color.

When you cleanse crystals with sunlight, visualize the light penetrating the stone, filling it with positive energy. This simple practice can enhance the crystal’s natural properties and restore its effectiveness. Regularly cleansing your crystals with sunlight keeps them energetically clean and ready to support your well-being.

Incorporating sunlight cleansing into your routine ensures your crystals remain powerful tools for positive energy. It’s a straightforward and effective method to maintain the vibrant energy of your crystals.

Cleanse Crystals With BROWN RICE

Using brown rice to cleanse crystals is an effective and gentle method. Brown rice has the natural ability to absorb negative energy from your crystals, helping to refresh and rejuvenate them. This technique is especially useful for softer stones that might be damaged by water or sunlight.

To cleanse crystals with brown rice, fill a bowl with uncooked brown rice and bury your crystals in the rice completely. Leave them there for at least 24 hours. The rice will draw out any unwanted energies from the crystals, leaving them clean and recharged.

This method is particularly beneficial because it is safe for all types of crystals, regardless of their hardness or sensitivity to light. After the cleansing process, dispose of the rice properly as it has absorbed the negative energy and should not be consumed.

Regularly using brown rice to cleanse crystals ensures that they maintain their positive energy and effectiveness. This simple yet powerful method helps keep your crystals in top condition, ready to support your spiritual practices and enhance your well-being. Incorporating this technique into your routine is an easy way to ensure your crystals always stay energetically clean.

Cleanse Crystals With SMUDGING

Smudging is a powerful and ancient method to cleanse crystals. This technique involves using the smoke from sacred herbs to purify your crystals. Common herbs used for smudging include sage, palo santo, and cedar. The smoke from these herbs is believed to carry away negative energy and restore balance.

To cleanse crystals with smudging, light your chosen herb and let it produce smoke. Hold your crystal in the smoke, allowing the smoke to envelop the stone completely. As you do this, visualize the negative energy being lifted away and replaced with positive, pure energy. Continue this process for a few minutes for each crystal.

Smudging is a gentle method that works well for all types of crystals. It’s particularly beneficial for those that might be sensitive to water or sunlight. This method not only cleanses your crystals but also infuses them with the natural healing properties of the herbs used.

Regular smudging helps maintain the energetic purity of your crystals, ensuring they are always ready to support your well-being. Incorporating smudging into your routine is a simple yet effective way to keep your crystals energetically clean and vibrant.

Cleanse Crystals With SALTED WATER

Salted water is a traditional and effective way to cleanse crystals. Salt has natural purifying properties that help to remove negative energy from your stones. To cleanse crystals with salted water, you need to prepare a solution by mixing sea salt or rock salt with water.

To start, dissolve a tablespoon of salt in a bowl of water. Submerge your crystals in the salted water, ensuring they are fully covered. Leave them in the solution for several hours, preferably overnight. The salt works to draw out and absorb the negative energy from the crystals.

After the soaking period, remove the crystals and rinse them thoroughly with clean water to remove any salt residue. This method is particularly effective for hard stones like quartz and amethyst. Popular choices include Ruby, Clear Quartz, Apophyllite, Kyanite, Selenite, and Carnelian. However, be cautious with softer or porous crystals, as salt can damage them over time.

Using salted water to cleanse crystals regularly keeps their energy pure and potent. This simple method helps maintain the effectiveness of your crystals, ensuring they are always ready to support your spiritual and healing practices. Incorporating salted water cleansing into your routine is an easy way to keep your crystals energetically vibrant and clean.

Cleanse Crystals With MOONLIGHT

Moonlight is a gentle and powerful way to cleanse crystals. The energy from the moon, especially during a full moon, is believed to recharge and purify crystals, removing any negative energy they have absorbed. This method is suitable for all types of crystals, making it a versatile and effective cleansing technique. Many crystals like Amethyst, Aquamarine, Citrine, Fluorite, Rose Quartz, and Smoky Quartz are all safe to be cleaned with moon energy.

To cleanse crystals with moonlight, place your crystals outside or on a windowsill where they can be exposed to the moon’s light. It’s best to leave them out overnight, allowing them to absorb the moon’s energy for several hours. As the moonlight washes over the crystals, visualize any negative energy being cleared away and replaced with positive, pure energy.

This method not only cleanses your crystals but also recharges them, enhancing their natural properties. Moonlight cleansing is particularly effective during a full moon, when the moon’s energy is at its peak. This practice helps to keep your crystals energetically clean and ready to support your spiritual and healing work.

Incorporating moonlight cleansing into your routine ensures your crystals remain vibrant and powerful. This simple yet effective method helps maintain the positive energy of your crystals, making them always ready to benefit your well-being.

Cleanse Crystals With SALT BED/RUBBING

Using a salt bed or rubbing with salt is a powerful way to cleanse crystals. Salt is known for its natural ability to absorb negative energy, making it an ideal medium for purifying your stones. This method is simple and effective, helping to maintain the positive energy of your crystals.

To cleanse crystals with a salt bed, fill a bowl or dish with sea salt or rock salt. Bury your crystals in the salt, ensuring they are completely covered. Leave them in the salt bed for several hours, preferably overnight. The salt works to draw out and absorb any negative energy from the crystals.

Rubbing the crystals with salt is another effective method. Gently rub the crystals with salt grains, focusing on all surfaces. This physical interaction helps to dislodge and remove accumulated negative energy.

After using either method, dispose of the salt properly, as it will have absorbed negative energy. Rinse your crystals under running water to remove any salt residue and to complete the cleansing process.

Incorporating salt bed or rubbing into your crystal cleansing routine helps keep your stones energetically clean and vibrant. This practice ensures your crystals are always ready to support your spiritual and healing needs, maintaining their effectiveness and positive energy.

Cleanse Crystals With EARTH

Using the earth to cleanse crystals is a natural and grounding method. The earth’s energy can neutralize negative vibrations and recharge your crystals with positive energy. This technique mimics the natural process that crystals undergo in the ground over thousands of years.

To cleanse crystals with earth, bury them in soil. Choose a spot in your garden or use a pot with fresh soil. Bury the crystals completely and leave them for at least 24 hours. The earth will draw out any negative energy, restoring the crystals to their natural state.

This method is particularly effective for grounding stones like hematite and smoky quartz. However, it works well for all types of crystals. After the cleansing period, dig up the crystals and rinse them with clean water to remove any soil residue.

Using earth to cleanse crystals is a simple yet powerful way to maintain their energy. It helps to refresh and recharge them, ensuring they remain effective tools for your spiritual practices. Regularly incorporating earth cleansing into your routine keeps your crystals energetically vibrant and ready to support your well-being.
