How to Charge & Cleanse Your Crystals

Every so often, it is a good idea to cleanse and charge your crystals. These crystals are working with you to help rid you of negative energy. Because of this, it is believed that they can absorb some of this negative energy which you are attempting to eliminate.

During your cleansing and charging process, you’ll want to ensure that you are using best practices to restore your crystals back to their original level of ability. In this guide, we will provide the best ways to cleanse and charge your crystals and crystal bracelets so that you can continue to reap benefits from them for years to come.

Cleansing Crystals

There are a number of methods that people use to cleanse their crystals, some of the most popular options are:

  • Clean, Clear Running Water. You need only spend about a minute per crystal, running them each under water while gently massaging them.
  • Salt Water. Crystals that are able to submerged can be placed in a salt water solution for as long as you see fit. Many practitioners recommend leaving them in the salt water for roughly an hour.
  • Sage Cleanse. Using sage is a nice alternative to the first two water-based options described above. Take your time with this process and ensure that you address every potion of the crystal.
  • Cleanse through Visualization. You can also complete this process through the use of no external cleansing agents at all. To use visualization to cleanse your crystals, you need only hold the crystals and meditate away the trapped negative energy.

Charging Crystals

One of the best methods to charge your crystals is to tap into the healing power of nature in one of the following ways:

  • Sunlight Exposure. If you have a particularly sunny day available to you, take your crystals outside and let them charge with the power of the sun.
  • Moonlight Baths. The theory here is similar to that of exposing the crystals to the sun. Bring your crystals out to charge in the moonlight whenever it feels right for you.
  • Soil Burial. Re-establish a deep connection to the earth by burying your crystals in soil overnight. By the time you get them in the morning, they will be good as new.
