Cleansing and clearing your crystals

Hi again crystal lovers, this week we are covering cleansing and clearing your crystals.

Many people use crystals to combat against negative energies entering their lives, to soothe mind and body or connect the soul to a higher vibration. This means that the vibration of the crystal gets cloudy and they are not as effective at doing what we need them to do.

Crystals often travel long distances and pass through many environments and hands before they reach ours and can pick up different energies and feelings along the way meaning the purpose you may intend for it for may not be what the the crystal is aligned to at the time.

For theses reasons it is super important to cleanse and clear you precious crystal gifts form Mother Earth so you can get the full benefit of what they can offer.

For example if you are using aragonite or Rose Quartz for stress or anxiety the stones will pick up those energies and absorb them in so need to be cleansed out regularly.

Below I will discuss some ways you can cleanse, Clear and purify your crystals.

Running water – 

The act of running water constantly hitting the stone creates ions to purify and discharge left over vibrations.

Water is said to neutralise energies stored inside the stone and return it back to the earth leaving your crystal pure once more.

Natural running water is ideal, if you are close to a stream, river or lake your crystals will love to be cleared there.

Sea water – 

Salt has been used through out history to absorb or draw unwanted vibrations and blocked energies so using the ocean is the best natural way to cleanse your crystal this way.


You can place your crystals in the sun to burn out unwanted information/vibrations.

Be careful with this one not to over heat as it can change the colour or makeup of the original Crystal.

Full moon –

By placing your crystals out during a full moon negative energies will be pushed out and positive energies restored.

The powerful nature of the moons pull has a lot to with this one. Crystals are largely made up of water and the moon has a lot of control in this area therefore making it the perfect crystal cleanser.

 Other crystals –

Quartz and selenite are the ultimate rechargers when it comes to using crystals to cleanse crystals.They both offer clarity to regenerate energy when other crystals are placed on top.

The more often you use a crystal the more energy it collects and holds onto so once a month is a good rule of thumb. If an individual stone is feeling heavier than usual, go ahead and cleanse it. You don’t have to wait a designated amount of time to cleanse.

When using any of the above methods be sure to reset your intentions on each one after the cleansing process is over.Give thanks to Mother Nature for providing us these incredible wonders, hold them in your hands and put good vibes in.

Thanks so much for reading and see you here next week.
