If you’ve begun to collect crystals for healing purposes, you may be wondering, “How do you clean your crystals?”
Thankfully, the answer is simple and there are only a few easy steps that you need to follow.
In order to keep your crystals in pristine condition, you want to physically clean off any mud or debris that may be on them. This will aesthetically improve your crystals.
Then, you must remove any negative energies that may be in your crystals, such as bad vibrations. These negative energies are often due to other people handling the crystals without care. Which brings us to another important point. You may want to limit who can handle your crystals –if anyone. Crystals are very powerful and they can easily absorb the energy of others. You don’t want to pick up that energy via the crystal.
So how do you clean your crystals? Soaking them in salt water will help to remove any toxicities that your crystals have picked up. Put them in a plastic bowl and completely immerse them in the salt water to cleanse the crystals thoroughly. There is also a notable difference between sea salt and table salt, and you should always make sure that you use the former. Sea salt ensures that the vibrations you feel are much more subtle. When you want to use the crystals on intense chakras such as your third eye, having subtle vibrations is especially important.
When cleaning crystals, you may choose to rub in some sweetgrass for added effect. You should do this when attempting to cleanse crystals that cannot be soaked in water for a long period of time.
Incense is another effective way to cleanse crystals, however if you are using this method you should be careful with how you fan the incense, so that you don’t bring negative energies to yourself. Look to use a handheld fan when using incense, rather than fanning the smoke with your own hands.
