How to care of your crystals
Crystals are not just beautiful decoration pieces, they carry amazing healing properties and can help you in many ways. Each of them is unique, some more powerful than others. As everything is energy and vibrates at a certain frequency, everything that is around us can influence us at a vibrational level. By having in our space a high vibrational crystal, its energy is starting to influence our environment and our energy field, elevating the vibration that is around it at the healing vibration of the crystal. Also, the crystals are influenced by the energy around them, hence they have to be cleansed and purified frequently.
Some ways to cleanse your crystals:
- Keep your crystal under running water for 1 minute. Water has deep cleaning properties and it is believed that it will neutralize any negative energy and sending it to Mother Earth for transmuting.
Use this method for hard stones such as quartz, do not use it for soft stones such as selenite, halite, kyanite
-Immerse your crystal entirely into a bowl filled with salt water( use fresh salt water from an ocean/sea/lake or mix one tablespoon of sea salt with a bowl of water ), keep your crystal for 48 hours in the salted water, rinse and dry it after. This method is good for hard stones.
Do not use this method for soft stones or porous such as calcite, selenite, halite, kyanite, or crystals that have trace metals in them such as Angelite, Pyrite, Lepidolite, Hematite. Please check what sort of stone you have.
- Keep your crystal totally immersed into a bowl of brown rice for 24 hours. Brown rice has the capacity of absorbing negative energy, so dispose of it after the process is finished.
This method can be used for any crystal.
- Smudging is a very good way to cleanse your space, your aura, and your crystals. Make sure to allow the smoke to surround the crystal for about 30-60 seconds, during the smudging process keep the window/door open to allow negative energy to disperse outside. You can use any smudging herbs, frankincense, myrrh, or Palo Santo.
This method is great for any crystal.
- Sound is another great method to cleanse your space, aura, or objects, including crystals. A single tone that washes over an area is bringing it into the same vibration as the tone. Use healing instruments such as singing bowls, tuning forks, or tingsha bells, and allow the vibration of the tone to surround your space and crystals for about 5 to 10 minutes.
This method is great if you have a big collection of crystals and want to cleanse them all together and for any type of crystal.
- Use crystals such as amethyst geode, crystal quartz, carnelian, hematite, or selenite, these have cleansing properties and you can use them to clean your other crystals. Place the crystal that you want to cleanse on top of the cleansing crystal, if this one is big enough, or place the small clearing stones in a small bowl and place the cleansing crystal on top of them, keep them together for 24 hours.
This method is good for any crystal.
