Cleaning and Caring For Your Crystals

Many people buy and fall in love with Nature’s Gemstones – Healing Crystals. They buy several whenever they see them at Spiritual Fairs, New Age Shops and even on line, Grailstones is a great favourite of mine and then leave them on a shelf or in a basket and never get the full benefits of these precious gifts

You need to reconnect with them and use them in the ways they were intended for. Gather up all your Crystals, touch them, take them outside in the sunlight, hold them, cleanse and reprogram them.

Over the years many people have asked me why crystals need to be cleansed, the answer is simple, you must cleanse away the dust, negative and stale energies that may surround your crystal.

One other thing I would like you to do is to think back to the day you chose each crystal and reasons why you had to have it. Then ask yourself this question “Have I put it to good use?”

Crystals can help us in our daily lives; make YOUR Crystals part of your everyday life and cleanse and reprogram them regularly.

Here are a few suggestions on how to cleanse them. Place it under the light of a full moon/sun for 24 hours.

7580372 Multiple Healing Crystal Stones

Please note the following Crystals may fade in the Sunlight, so use other methods –

Amethyst, Celestite, Opal, Turquoise

Bury them in the earth for 48 hours. *PLEASE mark the spot!

Place your Crystals in a bowl of water in which you have added 7 drops of Flower Essences (such as Bach Flower). Keep them in this for 24 hours.

Place your Crystals in Salt Water. Use one teaspoon of Sea Salt in a Glass bowl (Do not use metal bowls please). Some crystals should NOT be washed/cleansed in salt water as it changes their properties and by this I mean their physical properties not their Metaphysical Properties.

They are –

  • Calcite
  • Carnelian
  • Labradorite (Spectrolite)
  • Lepidolite
  • Moldivate
  • Opal
  • Turquoise

Use 1 drop of your favorite Essential oil on each crystal and cleanse it with a tissue.

When using your Essential Oil burner, hold your Crystal over the vapors for 2-3 minutes.

If you are a Reiki Practitioner, hold them in your hands and give them a Reiki Healing.

The wonderful ways above will rejuvenate the power of your crystals. It washes away the negative energies it/they have absorbed and recharges with positive healing energy.

Oh by the way, if you use your Crystals for Crystal Healing everyday (i.e. you use them on clients) they work very hard. It is good to send them home for at least 1 month every year. By that I mean bury in the Earth for one month (again please mark the spot).

Love your Crystals as they love you!
