How to Cleanse Your Crystals
It’s important to cleanse our crystals before wearing or working with them because crystals store energy. Emotions affect the auric field of the physical body, and because crystals can easily pick up vibration and frequency, they can also attract discordant, disharmonious vibrations and frequencies, even from passing strangers. If we don’t cleanse them before using, it might interfere with your energies. That is why I cleanse all jewellery and crystals before sending them out to you. But you would want to cleanse them every so often or after each use for your crystal to work its best for you.
There are no hard and fast rules on which tools or methods you should use - experiment around and listen to your feelings to see what works best for you!
1. Running water
3. Salt & Apple Cider Vinegar Solution
Soak crystals in salt, apple cider vinegar, and distilled water for 10 minutes or longer. This mixture can be made in advance and used as needed. Place crystals carefully in a glass bowl and pour solution over them until they are immersed, leaving them for 10 minutes or more. Throw out mixture after use. Then rinse throughly with distilled water. The contact of salt purifies all human emotions immediately from the crystals.

1 gallon distilled water
Approximate duration: 10 mins
