How to Cleanse Crystals

All crystals purchased from Crystallynn are cleansed and Reiki activated. However, over time, they will need to be cleansed and re-energized again. Once they have been cleansed, you may also program your stones with specific loving and healing intentions specific to you. 


Cleansing Crystals & Gemstones 



Hold the crystal(s) in your hand or over your crystals focus your intention and mental energies on your crystals and ask your Higher Self,  your Angels/ guides, and the Universe to cleanse, and remove the crystals of all negative energies and to re-energize them for their optimal potential.  Always thank your Higher Self, the Universe, and/or your Angels, after doing this.



Smudging is an efficient way of cleansing and I find it one of the more popular ways to cleanse crystals. You can use sage, palo santo, sweetgrass, sandalwood or even incense to smudge your crystals.  Burn the smudge option of your choice, move the smoke around your crystals, the smoke will clear the stones of all negative energy.  



The energy of a full moon and a new moon are powerful for cleansing and recharging your crystals. The moon's rays can cleanse and charge your crystals. You can place them outside or near the window, even if it is a cloudy night this method will still work. 



The sun is a very strong energetic way to cleanse your stones.  Even when it is cloudy, the sun's rays can still cleanse and energize the crystals. Not all crystals should be cleansed/charged by the sun since the sun’s rays can take the color out of the crystals over a period of time take note of which crystals should not be place in direct sunlight. 



Crystals and minerals come from the earth, so placing them directly into the earth for 24 hours will naturally cleanse all negative energies and re-energize them. (I recommend placing them in a cloth first before placing into the dirt.) 



Holding your crystals under clear, purified water and natural spring water will cleanse and recharge them.  Do not use tap water.  Salt Water is an option but only recommended for harder stones. Place some natural sea salt into a glass bowl, add purified water and your gemstones.  Leave for approximately 24 hours and then gently pat dry, or leave to air dry. Can also cleanse your crystals in ocean water. Not all stones can be immersed in water, if you are unsure then use another method. 



Sea salt has been known to have purification properties.  Sea salt will absorb all negative energies from the stones, leaving them cleansed and charged.  Use two glass bowls - one larger and one smaller. Fill the large bowl with sea salt and place the smaller bowl into the large bowl.  Place stones into the small bowl and leave overnight for 24 hours. Dispose the salt, do not reuse for any other reasons. 



Use a singing bowl to cleanse your crystals. The vibrations from the singing bowl will cleanse the stones. If the stones are small you may put them into the singing bowl.  Place bigger stones close to the bowl, then set your intentions to cleanse the stones and play the bowl. 



Reiki energy will cleanse and energize your crystals. If you are Reiki trained you can hold the crystal in your hand and Reiki it. 



Placing your stones on a large quartz cluster, a crystal plate, crystal slab or crystal bowl, of your choice will clear negative energies and/or  charge the stones depending on which crystal you choose as the cleanser/charger.  Remember to regularly cleanse the other crystals to retain its cleansing and charging powers.
