How to Clean Crystals


Like anything else that absorbs energy, crystals need cleansing. Here are some simple ways on how to clean crystals:


Running Water: Hold your crystal under running water for a few minutes. This method suits hard stones like amethyst and quartz but not delicate stones like selenite or malachite.

Sunlight or Moonlight: Expose your crystal to sunlight or moonlight for several hours. However, be careful, as some crystals may fade under the sun.


Smudging: Burn sage or palo santo and pass your crystal through the smoke to cleanse it of any negative energy.


Sound Healing: Use singing bowls or tuning forks near your crystals to create vibrations that can cleanse them.


Remember always to set an intention after cleansing your crystals, as this activates their purpose.


Crystals are more than just decorative pieces; they carry meanings and energies that can positively influence our lives when used mindfully. Whether you choose amethyst for spiritual growth, Rose Quartz for love, Tiger's Eye for courage, Lapis Lazuli for wisdom, Aquamarine for peace, or Turquoise for protection - wearing these crystals can help align your energies with your intentions.


However you choose to use them - whether worn as jewellery or placed in strategic locations around your home - remember that the power of these crystals lies in your belief and intention. So, cleanse them regularly, set your intentions, and let these beautiful stones support you on your journey.
