Crystal's Caring & Cleansing


Crystals are great at absorbing Energy and although you may not see it, your Crystal will come to you carrying Energy from previous travels. To start "from scratch" with a new Crystal, the next step is to clear out any lingering prior energies (especially negative vibes) and begin to immerse it in your own.


l. Burn sage

Sage is a sacred plant with a multitude of healing properties. Smudging your stone is said to clear inharmonious vibrations and restore its natural energy.

You’ll need:

- A fire-safe bowl

- A lighter or matches

- Loose or bundled sage

If you’re unable to smudge outdoors, make sure you’re near an open window. This will allow the smoke and negative energy to disperse.

When you’re ready, ignite the tip of the sage with the flame. Transfer the sage to your non-dominant hand and firmly grasp your stone and move it through the smoke.
Allow the smoke to envelop the stone for about 30 seconds.

ll. Soak your Crystal Into Water, Brown Rice, or Salt for a few hours and rinse afterward.

lll. Sunlight or Moonlight 

Sunlight and moonlight can charge and clean your gemstone. The sun will supply a newly harvested gemstone with yang solar energy that balances the stone’s innate yin energy it received from the earth during its creation. For stones that are susceptible to discoloration under the strong sun (such as amethyst or rose quartz), you can opt to put them out at dawn for an hour. 

Note: Moonlight is a more delicate (and non color-altering) method that is especially effective with a full moon.
Because the moon is at its brightest and full potential when full, it can increase the stone’s vibrations.


Remember that your intention will be reprogrammed into your Crystal so be sure you are resonating to vibrations you would like.

l. Meditation and Palo Santo 

It’s important to state an intention so you can refuel your gemstone after you clean it. If you practice this form regularly, it will come naturally. And the calmness of your being will allow for true stone sterilization.


- Hold your crystal to your heart and then to your third eye. With clear intent, imagine the task projected into the crystal. Hold it extended in front of you until the three (crystal, heart, and mind) link forming a triangle and locking in the purpose.

- State aloud the program and thank the crystal for being a willing transmitter of this frequency.

Burning palo santo as part of a calming ritual can help promote a shift in energy. The pleasing, grounding aroma of palo santo triggers the brain's olfactory system, stimulating the relaxation response and preparing the mind for meditation or creative focus.

Note: Do not do this in vain. Make sure you practice this with relaxed and true meditation. Even better if you try a meditation-cleanse during a full moon! 

ll. Moon & Sun


- Remember that the moon reflects the light of the sun. The full moon confers its sacred feminine energy to anything that receives its soft light. Place directly under the moonlight and charge it up under the full and new moons to get the most potent frequencies. The moon has a feminine energy that can help with spiritual and emotional healing.


- It would be unfair to honor the moon and not recognize the power of the sun! Charging your crystals in the sunlight (direct light is better than windows) will super-charge your crystal and give it drive and focus. The solar energies tend to be more “masculine” and are better suited for programming.
