Cleansing your crystals
When you have chosen your special crystal, we advise that you cleanse it before working with it, to ensure its energy is pure. It may have had a long journey before it reached you!
There are many different methods of cleansing your crystal. We would like to share our favourite ways, ways we know that work, through our knowledge and experience…
Using sound – a very quick and effective method. Using Ting Chas, a bell, tuning fork, etc – you can simply surround the crystal in the sound. This method is safe for all.
Smudging – Using a sage stick or incense, you just waft the smoke all around your crystal.
Water – We advise using mineral water as it contains fewer chemicals. Simply pour the water over the crystal. Do not use water on soluble crystals like Selanite, or those that can become damaged by prolonged contact with water, such as Amber, Malachite, Celestite, Angelite or Halite.
Sunlight – a very natural way but some crystals will fade in colour, in the UV rays. Rose Quartz, Amethyst, Sugilite, Smoky Quartz and Celestite, are a few examples.
We don’t advise the use of salt for cleansing as many crystals can be damaged with prolonged contact. Whichever method you choose, the intent in which you do it, is important.
Please do ask us, if you require any further advice. We’re always happy to help.
