Caring for Your Crystals

Wednesday, December 8, 2021


Today, I will talk about how you can cleanse and care for your crystals. Anytime someone handles a crystal or it changes locations, the crystal’s energies will also change. Even when a crystal is in an emotional environment, those emotions will effect that crystal’s energy. Therefore, we must care and cleanse our crystals regularly to remove those effects.

Cleansing Your Crystals

1. Moon Light

Moonlight can help cleanse and recharge your crystals and is the easiest way to do so. The only down side is, most people like to wait until it’s a New Moon or Full Moon to use the moon light to cleanse and recharge their crystals. Some say that any moon light will work. Do your research to see which moon will give you the energy you want for your crystals. The moon phase and the zodiac sign the moon is in does effect the energy the moon gives.

2. Clear Quartz Crystals

Placing your crystals around or in a bed of clear quartz to help cleanse your other crystals. Clear quartz also helps amplifies the energies of other crystals. 

3. Sound Cleansing

You can use a crystal singing or a brass singing bowl to help cleanse your crystals. If you don’t have these items, maybe you could try using just the sounds they make. Spotify has a crystal singing bowls playlist that you can use. You can place your crystals around your phone or speakers to be within the sound waves.

4. Smoke Cleansing

You can use any herbs or incense that have cleansing properties. You would use the smoke that it give off while burning to cleansing your crystals.

5. Salt or Water

You can cleanse your crystals using salt or water. This can also include sea salt and saltwater. The thing with this method is that not every crystal can go into water. You will have to know your crystals to know which ones can and can not go into salt or water. Here is a list of the crystals that you shouldn’t add to water:
  • Amber
  • Calcite
  • Kyanite
  • Malachite
  • Moonstone
  • Opal
  • Selenite
  • Topaz

You should cleanse and recharge your crystals at least once a month if you plan to work with them. You should store them in a place where no one can handle them. I like to place my crystals on a self right above my desk or in a small bowl on my desk. My family members know that my desk is my space in our home and no one should be at my desk unless giving  permission.

Some crystals also can’t be in direct sunlight or they can lose their color. It’s important to not place your crystals near a window where it’s very sunny. Below is a list of crystals that are sensitive to sunlight:
  • Amethyst
  • Aquamarine
  • Aventurine
  • Citrine
  • Fluorite
  • Any type of Quartz
  • Sapphire

Always research your crystals properties to know how to properly care for them. Over time, you will understand your crystals energies so you can use them to help you in life. In the next few weeks, I will go over how crystals can heal you and the many different crystals that are out there.
