Cleansing Techniques

Crystals fare best when they have a consistent opportunity to rest and re-energize in a process called “regeneration”. Use your intuition to choose the process and timing that most resonates with your relationship with Anwar. We do suggest to keep it alive at least during the change of seasons.

Moon Bath

Place your Crystal where it can spend a bit of time under the moonlight. A new moon brings a fresh start, while a full moon brings closure. Crystals resonate with the natural cycles of the moon, making it one of the most popular ways to cleanse and recharge a Crystal.

Sound Bath

A sound bath is uplifting for your Crystal, and you. Use tuning forks, bells, gongs, drums, chimes or a singing bowl as you bathe your Crystal in resonant sound vibrations for a few minutes. Chanting or singing works great too.

Smoke Cleansing

Many cultures traditionally use smoke for cleansing purposes. Burn incense or herbs in a small fireproof container. Use your hands or a feather fan to disperse the smoke around your Crystal. The smoke will also clear the energy of the room.

Sun Bath

Sunlight is a powerful tool that amplifies the natural vibrations of Crystals. Crystals don’t need much sun to experience the benefits. Place your Crystals in sunlight for no more than two hours. Be mindful of too much heat on bright, sunny days.

Water Bath

Fresh water from a river, lake, rain, or even the tap can absorb energies that need to be released. Immerse your Crystal in a water bath overnight, or hold it under cool running water for a few minutes. Salt water will also purify Crystals. Use ocean water or a mixture made from 1-2 tablespoons of salt completely dissolved in 8 ounces of water. Rinse your Crystal in clear water when done.

Soil Bath

Crystals can be buried in the earth, or even in a potted houseplant. The soil allows them to recalibrate to the vibration of the earth. Let them rest for a day or even a moon cycle. Be aware that soil may contain moisture that isn’t appropriate for Crystals that are water sensitive.

Crystalline Bath

Crystals can regenerate by being placed on or around cleansing Crystals such as Selenite or Blue Kyanite for 24 hours. Crystal clusters such as Clear Quartz, Citrine or Amethyst are also options.

Plant Oils, Flower Essences & Crystal Sprays

Crystals may be carefully passed through vaporized essential oils such as frankincense, sage or juniper. Crystal cleansing sprays made from flower essences are also readily available. Please note: some sprays and oils may not be appropriate for direct application to Crystals that are sensitive to liquids. However you may still use the spray or vaporized oil as a room air cleanser and the Crystal will benefit indirectly.


Intentional breathing through meditation is another cleansing technique. As you breathe, imagine a ray of white or golden light passing through your Crystal, collecting what is no longer needed, and moving it back into the Universe. You can also utilize other energy healing modalities, such as Reiki, to cleanse your Crystal.
