How I like to cleanse and charge my Crystals

"If you want to find the secrets of the universe,
think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration"
-Nikola Tesla

Hello my beautiful friends! Today I would like to share with you how I like to cleanse my crystals. 

Crystals are continuously vibrating. They help us in so many ways. The can block negative energy as well as pull some positive energy our way. By doing all of this magic work the crystals can hold on to and transfer all types of energy.

This makes it crucial that crystals are cleansed on a regular basis. Daily, weekly, monthly and so on. Depending on what you are using them for will help determain how often.

I like to do a good cleansing on all my crystals every month and charge for the full moon. I like to smudge the ones I keep on my as in my jewelry and rose quartz I keep in my bra several times a week. I also go off the energy I feel from the crystals. If I had a bad day, or did a chakra stone mediation I may want to cleanse as well. 

I find the more you work with your crystals, the stronger your bond grows with them. I always know exactly what my crystals need instinctively. 

Every time I get a new crystal I cleanse in salt water for at least 24 hours. It may be carrying energy that I don't want there. The only time I won't do an initial cleansing is if someone I care and trust has given me a crystal with a specific intention. regardless at some point it will need to be cleansed. 

 There are many different ways to achieve cleansing your crystals. Here are the methods that I myself have tried and enjoy using. 

Salt Water Cleansing 

I take a clear glass bowl and fill with water and add some pink Himalayan salt. Place your crystals in the bowl anywhere from 1-24 hours. The salt will draw out any impurities the crystals may be holding. for this reason it is very important to discard the water and salt from the bowl. Do not reuse. It is also very important to make sure the crystal your are cleansing will not be damaged by the salt. some examples: desert rose, selenite , tourmaline , pink Himalayan lamps, halite, calite varieties, and malchite. 

Smudging with Sage and Palo Santo 

This is a great and quick way to cleanse your crystals. I love both of them. They are a bit different but both work great. Sage clears all energy both good and bad. Palo Santo clears out the bad energy and draws in the good. For the most part I like to use sage for initial cleansing or if something major has happened. Palo Santo is my favorite and how I cleanse most often. 

Palo santo is what I use for my jewelry and bra crystals at least 1-2 week. 

You will want to light with either matches or a candle. Make sure you get either very lit so you have a nice stream of smoke coming from your herb. 


Once lit, in a sweeping motion make sure the smoke "smudges" the crystals. This will restore the crystals energy. Do this for 1-5 mins. 

Agua de Florida Bath 

This is another one that I really like to use. Using a clear glass bowl, fill it with water, a few drops of Agua de Florida, and a few drops of rose water(or even the petals of a rose). Submerge the crystals for up to 24 hours. 

Crystal Cleansing 

This is one that I use when I feel the crystals need a little boost or for some extra luck. I don't really use it as a cleansing but you can. Crystals are very powerful and they enjoy being around other crystals. I place my clear crystal Quartz as shown above and place the crystal in the center. Usually overnight. I use this method a lot with my rose quartz bra crystal. 

I also like grouping them together so they can share their energy. 


Singing to your crystals with the right intention is also a great way to re-tune your crystals. I love singing in general so this is easy for me. 


Ahh moonlight. I love the moon, and the moon loves us all right back. This is a go to every month for me. The energy from the new moon is very powerful. It also helps to remind me that I need to cleanse them. This is especially helpful if I may have missed a cleaning over the past month. I like to cleanse with salt water or some visualization prior to laying them out. 

Simply lay all of your crystals outside or on a window sill where it will get a lot of moonlight. I like to lay them out right after sun set and get them in the morning. 


The power of visualization! This is a safe way to cleanse your crystals. It can be bit intimidating at first, but trust me it works and is very powerful. 

Hold the crystal in your palms in a prayer position. Focus on it, and visualize a bright white light surrounding the crystal. Visualize a beam of white light going through the stone. Visualize all the impurities dissolving from the crystal, transforming into a healing white light.  Do this until you feel happiness in your heart chakra. 



To me this is the most important. If you have a good intention in your heart, and act with love, that is the key to keeping your crystals happy and in good order.

Prior to any method I choose to use, I like to burn some Palo santo and smudge myself, and say a nice quick prayer. "I'm doing this for the highest good, I make no judgement, nor do I visualize an outcome. Everything is working in divine order".    

Indigious Americans believe that you do not to energize crystals often or even at all with any of the above methods. They believe that the crystals will naturally re-tune/cleanse themselves from our body's own energy field. Simply picking them up and being handled, or rubbing between the palms chakras. 

The Choice is yours, do what feels right to you. Do one or do them all!

I have some other techniques I will be trying out. Once I do I will be sure to let you all know how my experience goes. 

I hope you all enjoyed! Come back for more tips soon!
