Why you need to Clear your crystals & How to do it

First – Why should you cleanse your crystals?

Depending on how your crystals make their way to you several people could have touched your crystal. When other handle your crystals they can leave their energy, good or bad all over them.

Consider cleansing your gemstones any time somebody else has been touching them. This clears their energetic fingerprint no matter how long you have had them.

If you ever find an old crystal, one thats been forgotten for a while or just sitting on a shelf for a long time that’s also a good opportunity for a quick cleasne as well.

Here are a few ways I like to clear my crystals. They all work, so just pick the method that speaks to you most.

1- Sea salt – Sea salt and water can help rid your stone of any unwanted energy. If the stone is not brittle, using sea salt should be fine. Make sure you know if your crystal is safe to put in water. Don’t put a porous stone that has lots of little holes or ridges (pyrite, hematite, etc.) in salt water since it can be damaged. A quick internet search will let you know if you are good to go with this method.

2-Other Stones – Crystals associated with purification like Carnielian, Clear Quartz, and Selinite are great to cleanse other crystals. Stack stone on top of any crystals that need clearing or keep them al in the same bag when you travel or group them together overnight.

3- Full Moon – Place your crystal under a full moon. This is my favorite way to cleanse my crystals. On the next full moon place any crystals you would like to cleanse on your windowsill or outside to soak up some of the refreshing full moon energy.

4- Bathe them in Moon Water – Moon Water is exactly what it sounds like, distilled water that has been left to charge under the energy of the full moon. There are many creative ways to use it, and soaking crystals, along as they are not porous, is one of them.

And last but not least!

5- Visulize Cleanising – Visulization is the practice of imagining that what you desire. It’s more powerful than you think. The next time your crystals need a refresh, hold it in your hands, close your eyes, and visualize a ray of cleansing light washing over it. If you are using your crystal to manifest a specific goal this is a great way to infuse your intentions to your crystal.


There you go! What ways do you plan on trying to cleanse your crystals?
