Cleansing & Charging Stones:
Place your stones, crystals, or minerals in a mesh bag and submerge* them in a natural source of water (streams, rivers, lakes, oceans). Allow the water to flow over the stones while mindfully using positive affirmations, thinking of your hopes and desires.
*Some minerals such as Selenite break down in water after an extended period of time. It is ok to briefly submerge them in water (5 – 10 seconds) but this should not be done on a frequent basis.
Stones, Crystals, and Minerals that are known to break down in water after an extended period of time: Amber, Turquoise, Red Coral, Fire Opal, Moonstone, Calcites, Kyanite, Kunzite, Angelite, Azurite, and Selenite.
- Sage and Selenite are also powerful cleansers for stones, crystals, and minerals
- Performing the cleansing and charging ritual 3 days before or after a full moon is best (Check out our Full Moon dates here)
- You can cleanse and re-charge your stones, crystals, and minerals as often as you like
