Why Cleanse Your Crystals as Soon as You Get Home?

July 11th 2021

As the healing crystals interact with other crystals, objects, humans, their vibrations reflect back to them. Crystals can absorb energies from the environment, and you don't need unwanted vibes to come with your new stone, so cleanse them as soon as you get home or as soon as you received them if you placed your order online.

It has been observed that when people use or wear crystals, sometimes the stone becomes discolored. The esoteric explanation is that an unbalanced aura emits low-frequency vibrations that affect the vibration of the crystals, tuning them out. According to the esoteric explanation, the change in the vibration of the elementary particles affects the crystal's structure, which is why its color and vibration might change.

Since crystals can store low-frequency energy, they need to be cleaned at regular intervals.

Cleansing Your Crystals with Salt and Water

There are several simple ways to cleanse your crystals or crystal products. Which method you choose should not just depend on which is the easiest for you. You should also consider the structure and the properties of the stone.

  • Cleansing with running water - hold your crystal under cold running water for a few minutes. How long you should keep it under running water depends on how long it has been exposed to negative energies. Keep it under running water until you can feel that it's more light and clear.
  • Cleansing with salt or salted water - salt can absorb negative energies. Fill a bowl with pure sea salt, place the crystal on top, cover it with a cotton cloth and leave it there. Do not bury the crystal in the salt, as the salt can damage the structure of some minerals. If you live near the ocean, use fresh salt water to cleanse your crystals. Otherwise, add a tablespoon of pure sea salt into a bowl of water and submerge your stone in it for 24 to 48 hours. Never cleanse soft, porous stones like Selenite, Calcite, Lepidolite, Angelite, or Malachite with water.

Cleansing Your Crystals with Selenite and Smudging

Some crystals and minerals can not be cleansed with water because they are water-soluble. Other crystals will change their color when displayed under direct sunlight. The following methods can be used for all types of minerals:

  • Cleansing with smudging - Native Americans and shamans from various cultures have long used this method. You can burn different sacred herbs and cleanse your crystals in their smoke. You may not have these herbs or the knowledge to use them. Therefore we recommend you purchase herbs and smudging kits from a reliable source. Ignite the tip of the sage bundle or palo santo stick, keep it in your non-dominant hand, grasp your stone and move it through the smoke for about a minute. If you are smudging inside the house, keep a window open to allow the smoke and negative energies to disperse.
  • Cleansing with Selenite - this is the easiest cleansing method, and it's very efficient. Selenite can purify and recharge other crystals, place the crystals on a Selenite bowl or plate and leave it there overnight.
