We give all the crystals a good smoke bath of sage and frankincense on a daily basis in the shop. It is also a great idea to give your new crystals a good cleanse before you start to work with them, this will remove any impurities and negativity they may have collected along the way of being delivered to you and prepare them to work better with you. There are many ways for cleansing your crystals, and many of them can be as therapeutic to your own spirit as they are for your stones.
Not only will burning Sage and Frankincense, and Palo Santo make your home smell great, they will also bring positive vibes to yourself and your crystals. Let the sacred smoke penetrate your crystals until it seems to come back to life. This is likely the best option for larger, harder to pick up crystals. Simply use a feather or your hand to waft the smoke over and around the crystal.
Sunlight or Moonlight
When you feel your crystals aren’t as vibrant & energized as before, return them to nature. Let your crystals soak up the sunlight or bathe under the full moon for 4-5 hours. Large crystals especially need to be recharged, just make sure that you place them outside or inside nearby the window in direct contact with the sun or full moon to clear and recharge at least once a month.
Back to Mother Nature
Sometimes it’s best to return your crystals to their origin to embrace the earth and get revitalized and recharged. It’s best to bury your crystals within the earth (soil, sand, or clay) from 24 hours to a week, it can be a sort of a rebirth for your crystals to be put back into the embrace of the earth, the environment from which it was originally taken. They will absorb from the Earth’s resonance but this method is slow and gentle. Obviously the longer the crystal is buried, the deeper the cleansing. If you don’t have access to outside ground then use pot of earth or compost indoors with a house plant, having living resonance.
Selenite or Clear Quartz
Both Selenite and Clear Quartz have the unique ability to cleanse, recharge and purify the energy of other crystals, without diminishing their own energy. Lay your crystals and tumbled stones directly on a larger piece of Clear quartz or Selenite for 4-5 hours. You can also lay your crystal jewelry on top of them before bed each night to clear out any unwanted energy and to be ready to work with you in the morning.
