Sun & Water

Hold crystals under running water and dry them in the sun. Please ensure that you do not use water soluble crystals.


Moon & Water

Leave a bowl of water in the light of a full moon overnight and use this water to cleanse the crystals in. Please ensure you do not use water soluble crystals.



Hold crystal within the smoke of a smudge stick or an incense stick until you feel the crystal has cleansed.



A singing bowl, gong or tuning fork can be used with the crystals, the vibration of the sound will cleanse the crystals.



Take a deep breath and blow out over the crystals whilst imaging the negative energy being blown away. Repeat until you feel the crystal has been cleansed.


Sea Salt

Use dry sea salt and bury the crystals for 2 hours in a small container. Do not use salt water as this will damage the soft crystals.



Place crystals on a large crystal cluster for 24 hours and the cluster will cleanse them naturally.
