Different ways of Cleansing and Charging Crystals & Stones

Different ways of Cleansing and Charging Crystals & Stones

Something very important I need to mention is that no matter what people say about charging and activating crystals and stones online and sending them via courier service will certainly not help. It is my personal opinion and whoever reads this can totally be disagree and that is totally up to a person. Everybody practice their craft differently and so they have their different belief system and I totally respect that, Now why I say that it won't help? for example if you are taking crystals from a person that is selling stuff in to physical store and they says that they will cleanse & charge it for you and hand you the crystal and stones their self then it is entirely different thing but when it comes to online no matter what people say you got to cleanse and charge your crystals the moment you receive them.

For the starters it’s been handled by so many people in transit and every person has different energy now I know one can say the Crystals are wrapped and packed but still they will pick the vibrations they are crystals.

  • Cleansing by four Elements - The Basic and most popular way is to cleansing by the four elements that is Earth, Water, Fire & Air and it is really efficient way of cleansing and charging them with more ritualistic way. You Can begin with filling a glass or ceramic bowl with some sea salt and water, submerge your crystals in to it and leave it under moonlight overnight. Know that if you cleansing and charging crystal bracelets that has elastic band base or any piece of wire wrap jewellery then submerging crystals overnight will not be a good idea instead you can submerge them for five minutes and then drain the water. Once water is drained you can leave the crystals in Bowl be it glass or ceramic under moonlight for night, second day you may want to talk salt water bath and take those crystals inside before the sunlight hit them directly. Take your crystals to your sacred space or alter and Light some incense and candle or earthen diya. Move the crystals through the incense smoke with the intention of cleansing the crystals and then move the crystals over fire, maintain a safe distance. Once you are done with it, you may now take the crystals in your dominant and charge them with your intentions. Take few deep breaths, ground yourself and envision this white light that is taking control over your body feel the energy and then direct the same light and energy in to crystals. Once you feel the heaviness you are done with charging them. You can now directly wear them or can keep them with yourself like your bag or pocket wherever you might have decided to.


  • Cleansing by Salt – Fill the Big Glass or Ceramic bowl with the sea salt/Himalayan Salt/Rock Salt whatever is available and leave your crystals on it for few hours, Place a Big Chunk or Pyramid or Tower of Selenite in the middle of the bowl. Selenite is Optional but if you have it you may use it.


  • Cleansing by Earth – Do you guys have house plant or any plant? Yeah, this is the time you may use the mother earth energy to cleanse them. If you have a big tree in your yard use it if not then a small house plant will do too. Leave the crystals on the soil and leave it under moonlight overnight and then take them inside before sun hits them.


  • Cleansing by Selenite – Do you know selenite is itself a cleansing and purifying crystal that absorbs negative energy and eject the same energy upwards by making itself cleansed at the same time. Yes, Leave your crystals and stones in the Selenite bowl or selenite tile or plate for couple of hours everyday after long day. It surely helps in cleansing the crystals energy on the regular basis. When you are not up for detail ritualistic cleansing.


  • Few Crystals are forbidden to cleansed via water such as selenite, tektite, malachite, unakite, kunzite, calcite, kyanite, azurite etc. The easy way to remember is any stone that ends with “ite” are not water friendly and thus you can cleanse them by other methods that are mentioned above.
