White Sage or incense
Hold your crystals in the smoke for 30 seconds to clean the low vibration and restore high vibrational energy. Outside is best so the smoke and negative energy to disperse. White sage is perfect for cleansing your crystals, home and any other space.
In the earth
Bury your crystals in the earth to cleanse and ground them for 24 hours. Ensure you can find them later so you may need to mark their location. The soil absorbs their negative energy and recharges them with positive energy. Crystals come from the earth and benefit from returning to the earth.
*Please note porous crystals should not be wet such as Selenite and Kyanite.
