When you first bring your crystal home, you’ll want to cleanse away any negativity it may have picked up. There are several ways this can be accomplished, but be careful, certain stones are more delicate than others!
One way is to hold it under cold, running water from a tap or rinse it in a natural source of water. Either way, be sure the water is cool, not warm or hot. Add a bit of sea salt to the cleanse to really help it get rid of unwanted energies.
Another way to purify your crystals is to smudge them with white sage or palo santo, you can pick up either the next time you’re in our store. Let the smoke from your smudging cleanse the stones by removing negative energies that might possibly cause blocks.
You can also leave it out to dry in morning sunlight or under the light of a full moon light to purify as well.
Selenite is a crystal that has purifying qualties as well. At the store, we sell selenite bowls that you can use and is probably the most effortless way to cleanse your crystals. At the end of the day, you can put your crystals and crystal jewelery in the bowls and let them clear the negative energy from them over night. This is also helpful for cleansing the crystals that end in “-ite” and cannot be cleansed with water.
It’s not just about their physical care, though. For crystals to work their magic, you mentally have to remove the negative energy or skepticism you may have about their capabilities. It’s important to respect what they can do for you.
Heads up: crystals that end in “-ite” do not like water, do not soak!
