how to cleanse crystals

This is a guide to cleanse your crystals. There are many different methods of cleansing as well as many different types of stones you can cleanse. I will cover the basics, but first, I would like to cover what cleansing is and isn’t for those who may not know or have been misled by other websites.

Keep in mind that I am going to use a rose for this example, but it works the same with any stone.

Cleansing is separating the stone from negative or unwanted energies to make it clear of these energies. This can be done by placing the stone outside under a full moon or any other strong light source such as sunlight. It can also be done by placing it under running water- such as a shower or leaving it overnight near running water. Salt can be used for the majority of stones and is perhaps the most popular method of cleansing.

Cleansing your stone(s) regularly will keep them from absorbing negative energies that may harm you if left on the stone for extended periods of time (more than a day).

So we start by getting out our rose quartz and choosing where we want to cleanse it. Shade is usually best because strong light sources like direct sunlight can actually cause damage to your crystal, however, I will make an exception and use sunlight.

Why is crystal cleansing important?

Crystal cleansing is important because the properties in crystals can help people feel better and improve their moods. Crystals can be used for many things such as healing, meditation, and stress relief. These natural beauties are aesthetically pleasing and have a positive impact on your life when you use them every day!

Crystal cleansing is important because it helps to bring harmony into one’s home or office space. Using crystals in this way creates a more peaceful environment that will benefit everyone who comes into contact with it. People may find themselves feeling less stressed throughout the day after working near crystal-infused objects or sitting at their desks with crystals nearby. This type of therapy has been around for centuries so why not try it out for yourself to see if it works for you?

The next step in our crystal cleansing process is to get rid of any dust or dirt on the surface. When cleansing, be sure to never use water that is too hot because it may crack the stone. Also do not use soap or other chemicals because this can strip your crystal.

Running water:

Rinse your crystals under a steady stream of room-temperature water. Place them in a container or cup and pour the water over them until they are fully saturated. Leave them there for a few minutes so any negative energy can be washed away. You

can move them around a bit for this process.

After rinsing, dry your crystals with a soft cloth or paper towel. Be sure to thoroughly wipe away any residue that may remain after cleaning. This will help the crystal remain clear and clean of any negative energies it collected during its time in storage or use. Remember that not all stones need to be cleaned regularly – if you are unsure about whether or not your stones require regular cleansing.

Brown Rice:

If you have some brown rice on hand, place your stones in a small container with the rice. Allow this mixture to sit overnight so any negative energy can be absorbed by the rice.


Place crystals in a bowl of salt for three days so they may absorb the positive properties of the salt. Cleanse your crystals after three days by rinsing them under warm water.

What crystals do I use?

  Many types of stones can be used for crystal cleansing, including rose quartz (my personal favorite) and amethyst. There are many other alternatives to this process though you should always try to refrain from using chemicals or soaps on your crystals if possible. When choosing crystals for your area, pick those that you like and feel drawn to. It’s also a good idea to choose stones with properties that will benefit the people who use them most often.

Rose Quartz

This beautiful stone is believed to help those who are feeling depressed or sad by offering feelings of comfort and warmth without erasing memories of past events. This crystal emits soft, pink energy that can help you feel better so you can reach your potential.


This stone is often used in healing due to its ability to absorb negative energy and transmute it so it may be used for positive purposes. It has calming properties that are helpful in relieving stress and promoting deeper sleep patterns which allow the body to re-energize itself.

My Final Thoughts:

Crystals are an amazing thing to use in your own home or office space. They can help you feel better by absorbing negative energies and emitting positive ones. This process is very simple and easy to do with just a few minutes of your time! If it doesn’t work, then at least you still have nice clean rocks! And who wouldn’t want that?

But my favorite method is, of course, using pure salt. I know this may sound odd, but I enjoy having my crystals stored overnight in an open container filled with coarse sea salt. It has an amazing cleansing effect which you can feel by simply handling the stones.
