There’s much more to using crystals as tools for inner healing than sticking them in your pocket and calling it a day!
Like our human meat suits, crystals must be clean and fuelled up before they can function effectively, as they can absorb energy from their surroundings, which may include people that they’ve been close to.
So, you’re wondering how to cleanse crystals, to make them more effective?
Luckily, it’s a simple and fun process to cleanse, activate and program your crystals for your intended purposes, and we’ve compiled seven of our favourite ways to go about it. Most important is the cleansing which we recommend you do first – especially after purchasing new gemstone jewellery or pocket stones for meditation and healing.
You don’t necessarily need to do all of these things, find whatever works for you and you find most enjoyable. They will certainly let you know when its time for a clean and charge up. Most of the techniques we recommend will serve multiple purposes such as cleansing and activating at the same time. Take a look and see what resonates with you!
Salt Water Soak
How amazing do you feel after visiting the beach for a day? Most peoples’ idea of a perfect, refreshing getaway involves a white sandy oasis of peace with clear blue water gently lapping against the shore.
Part of the mesmerising call of the ocean is its ability to cleanse and purify the air and land around it. It also therefore has the ability to cleanse and purify your crystals. Salt has been scientifically proven to aid breathing, and reduce electromagnetic pollution, that’s why himalayan salt lamps are so popular these days.
You could take your entire crystal collection to the seaside for a day if you’re lucky enough to live near the coast, but for most of us, in order to charge and cleanse your crystals, you can create your very own miniature ocean right here at home.
Simply add a good amount of sea salt to a glass or bowl of water, and let your crystals soak in this overnight. Some crystals may not be suitable for this such as kyanite and selenite, as they are quite soft and can dissolve.
For softer stones you may use some running water briefly to give them a clean, imagining white light enveloping the stones, this can be just as effective.

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” – Nikola Tesla
Nikola is one of the most influential and important figures in the history of mankind, responsible for a substantial slice of our modern day technologies. He was definitely light years ahead of any other inventors and philosophers in the 20th century. If you don’t know his story, go and check it out – it’s a page turner for sure.
Everything around us, everything we think, feel, see and touch has a vibration or frequency associated with it. our entire physical universe exists within the light spectrum and everything is constantly vibrating and moving. Our thoughts and emotions are also frequencies emitted by our thinking minds.
