All of our crystals are cleansed & charged before reaching you. However, it is important to cleanse your crystal when you receive it to clear any energy it may have picked up in transit. It’s also a good way to welcome the crystals to your space and program them as your own with your own personal intentions.
When we work we crystals they attune to our energy and over time they need to be recharged. Regularly cleansing your stones restores them back to their natural energetic state. You can cleanse your crystals as often as you like especially if you notice their energies are not as potent or feel “heavy" and "dull”. Some protective stones like smoky quartz, lepidolite and black tourmaline that absorb electromagnetic pollution should o be cleansed more frequently.
Here are some methods to cleanse and charge your crystals.
Sea Water or Sea Salt Bath: (Cleanses)
Salt is naturally cleansing. One of the best ways to cleanse your crystals is to return them back to mother earth, the sea! Water is said to neutralise any energy stored in the crystal and salt is a naturally cleansing mineral. If you can’t access the sea then adding sea salt in some water is just as effective. Simply soak your crystals overnight in a bowl of water + 1-2 tablespoons of sea salt (note some crystals are not water safe, please check before)
The sea salt water imitates the natural minerals and cleansing benefits of the sea. Make sure your stone is completely submerged, then gently pat dry when finished soaking.
Highly important! Always check whether crystals are water safe or salt water safe before using this method.
Cleansing with smoke (or known "smudging") is a quick and easy way to cleanse your crystals, and your space and own aura.
You can use sage, incense, palo santo or bundles of herbs of your choice.
Moving your crystal through this “sacred smoke” will draw out any stagnant energy and clear away unharmonious vibrations from the crystal. If you are smudging indoors make sure you have a window open to allow the negative energy and smoke to disperse. You will need a lighter or matches, a fireside bowl to put the sage/palo or incense. Once lit move your crystal through the sacred smoke for a few seconds allowing the crystal to become enveloped in the smoke. Envision the smoke drawing out any unwanted energy from the stone and enjoy the scents. For larger, harder to pick up crystals you can use a feather or hand fan to waft the smoke over them.

Dry Rice: (Cleanses)
This method can also be used to draw out negativity in and easy way. And I mean us Hong Kongers all got a bag of rice in the kitchen don’t we? Brown rice is especially effective for cleansing protective stones such as smoky quartz, obsidian and black tourmaline.
Simply fill a bowl with dry rice and bury your stone beneath the grains. Dispose of the rice immediately after the cleansing, as the rice is said to have absorbed the energy you’re trying to remove.
Sunlight Moonlight: (Cleanses & Charges)
Many crystals can be cleansed in the sunlight and all crystals can be cleansed in moonlight. Some crystals should not be exposed to direct sunlight as they may fade or alter the colour (such as Amethyst) please check which crystals are sun safe before placing them out!
A moonlight bath is one of the most magical ways to recharge activate your crystals energies. Allow your crystal to soak in the moons lbeautiful unar energy by placing them out overnight (on your windowsill or out in your garden if possible) The moons energy is especially potent during a full moon.
Mother Earth & Nature: (Cleanses & Charges)
To revitalise your crystals with mother earths nourishing energy you can place them on the soil for or even bury them in the earth for 24 hours. This works well especially for grounding stones and root chakra stones (such as Smoky quartz, obsidian, tourmaline, bloodstone)
Sound Healing: (Cleanses & Charges)
The sound frequencies and vibrations from singing bowls, gongs, tingsha bells or tuning forks can break up stagnant energy in your crystal. Their vibrations will shake and wake up your crystals and rejuvenate them with high vibrations and healing.
The Chargers: Selenite, Amethyst & Clear Quartz (Cleanses & Charges)
High-vibrational crystals with their own purifying energies can be used to cleanse and charge other stones. Crystals like Selenite, Amethyst and Clear Quartz have the unique ability to cleanse and regenerate the energy of other stones without diminishing their own energy.
These three crystals are three of the most effective crystals for cleansing and charging. To cleanse your crystals, place them next to a Selenite, Amethyst or Clear Quartz for at least six hours (the longer the better). This will cleanse, neutralize, and recharge your stones with higher vibrations. It is even more effective to charge crystals using Selenite, Amethyst or Clear Quartz during a full moon.
- Selenite is a high vibration stone that brings clarity, higher guidance & intuitive insight. Great for cleansing the aura, purifying surroundings & charging other crystals. Selenite will quickly draw out any negative or stagnant energy, revive and amplify your crystal or space.
- Amethyst has purifying qualities and the ability to absorb and dissolve negativity from your space and surroundings like a vacuum. Its high vibration can cleanse and regenerate other crystals
- Clear Quartz, known as the master healer clear quartz is an amplifier of energy and thought. Use it to cleanse your crystals or amplify a certain crystals healing property.
