Why do I need to cleanse my crystals?
Crystals hold the energetic charge of anyone and anything they've ever come in contact with.
When you get a crystal, it may be new to you, but it’s been on a long journey to reach its final destination in the palms of your hands. It’s been plucked from a mine, passed off to different handlers, who then gave it to a vendor, to sell to a retailer, where it got touched by various customers before it was selected by you! That’s a lot of collected energy you don’t want to work with. Because we all want a fresh start for our new journey with our crystals, it’s crucial that the first step you take is cleansing your crystals.
As the saying goes, “Clean space, clean mind.” Just as cleaning a cluttered room brightens your outlook, purifying your healing crystals lightens their energy, and ensures that they are vibrating their healing properties at the highest potential. When you learn how to recharge crystals regularly, it can enhance their healing properties and strengthen their ability to support your intention.
The reason that crystals are so effective in energy work, is the same reason that cleansing them is essential — crystals pick up energy. Cleansing your crystals resets their energy, so that every time you work with them, you are starting from an energetically clean slate. If you never clean your crystals, they will continue to store energy until they are no longer useful conduits.
A towel can wipe a mess clean, but if you never wash the towel, it will begin to add to the mess; crystals are similar. For a crystal to purify your energy, you have to first return the gesture, and cleanse its energy.
How to Care for your Crystals:
🔮 Your White Gold / 24K Gold Filled Bracelet:
✅ Water Resistant for Daily Wear
❌ Avoid Harsh Chemicals such as perfume, soap, chlorine water, bleach
❌ Avoid scratching your gold filled bracelet against hard surfaces as this may scratch the gold filled off
If tarnishing happens, simply use toothpaste or silver polishing cloth and it’ll be as good as new ✨
🛁 Before wearing your Crystals:
1. Cleanse your crystals by placing in salt + water mixture for 15 minutes.
(Be sure to clean your crystals using clean water afterwards.)
2. In between wear, cleanse your crystals regularly from once a week to once a month
3. Another way to cleanse is to place the small clear crystals given to you and your bracelet in a clear glass bowl overnight under moonlight.
(If you don't have an outdoor area that is safe for your crystals to be placed, a windowsill will work, too. It does not matter if your window does not face the moon. The moon energy will still be present.)
