Cleaning spiritual crystals is an important step in maintaining their energy and ensuring they function at their highest potential. Here are some methods you can use to clean your spiritual crystals:

  • Water Bath:
    • Rinse the crystal under running water, preferably natural sources like a river or stream. If this isn't possible, tap water will suffice.
    • Hold the intention of cleansing the crystal's energy as you wash it.
  • Salt Water Bath:
    • Fill a bowl with water and add a tablespoon of sea salt or Himalayan salt.
    • Submerge the crystal in the saltwater for a few hours or overnight. Be cautious with fragile or porous stones, as some may be damaged by salt.
  • Rice Bath:
    • Place the crystal in a bowl of dry, uncooked rice. Rice is believed to absorb negative energies.
    • Leave the crystal in the rice for several hours or overnight.
  • Smudging:
    • Pass the crystal through the smoke of cleansing herbs like sage, palo santo, or cedarwood.
    • Visualize the smoke purifying the crystal's energy.
  • Sunlight and Moonlight:
    • Leave the crystal in direct sunlight for a few hours, or under the light of a full moon overnight.
    • Be cautious with this method as some stones may fade or be damaged by prolonged exposure to sunlight.
  • Sound Cleansing:
    • Use sound vibrations from singing bowls, bells, or even chanting to clear the crystal's energy.
  • Visualization and Intent:
    • Hold the crystal in your hands and visualize a bright light surrounding it, purifying and cleansing its energy. Focus on your intention for the cleansing.
