Gemstones are widely known for their capability to protect us from the various types of negative energies around us. Some of them offer EMF protection such as the black tourmaline commonly embedded in black tourmaline pendants. Others, such as the onyx, smoky quartz, and hematite are cleansing crystals and eliminate negative energy around and within us.
Due to their constant exposure to negative energies, cleansing crystals should be done regularly. This is because they could lose their healing powers if not cleansed as often as they need to be. With that in mind, here are 10 ways on how to use cleansing crystals and keep them clean as well.
Exposure In the Sun.
The light produced by the sun can cleanse and charge your gemstones effectively. The sunlight will provide them with yang solar energies which balance the gemstones’ yin energy, an energy that is absorbed from the Earth since their creation.
Exposure Under the Moon.
Some crystals like amethyst, amber, and rose quartz are sensitive to sunlight, and exposing them to such can lead to discoloration. That said, in order to recharge them, you’ll have to expose them under the light of the moon, especially during a full moon. During this time, the moon is at its full potential, thus effectively cleansing and recharging the gemstones.
Burn with Fire.
Burning the gemstones with fire will immediately eradicate the negative energy lurking within them in just a matter of seconds. It doesn’t have to be a large fire; a simple candle fire will do. Moreover, you can opt to use a palo santo, sage stick, cedar, or sandalwood (these materials are also known to eradicate negative energy).
Exposure to Smoke.
Exposing your gemstones around a smoke is also a good cleansing method. For 30 seconds, just hover them over the smoke to cleanse them from any impurities. By doing this, you’re also purifying the surroundings of your room or the entire house.
Cleanse with Essential Oils.
Cleansing your gemstones with essential oils is one of the best methods for cleansing, albeit very expensive. Fortunately, one bottle could last for months as you’ll only need a few drops for every cleansing session.

You can choose from either lavender or juniper. The former is ideal for stones that are used for healing, while the latter is best at eradicating negative energies.
Bury Under the Earth.
Burying your gemstones under the earth is a gratifying way of cleansing and recharging them. After all, that’s where they came from. Before burying them, it’s preferable to wrap them with natural fabric such as silk or cotton wool.
As much as possible, avoid burying them on soils that are contaminated with chemicals from pesticides and fertilizers. To be certain that they’re fully cleansed and charged, keep them buried for around 24 hours or more before taking them out.
Submerge in Brown Rice.
Brown rice is known to naturally pull out any negative energies and impurities within the gemstones. For this, To do this, submerge the gemstones in uncooked brown rice using a bowl overnight; make sure that they’re completely submerged.
The next day, take them out of the brown rice and expose them under the heat of the sun for recharging. Additionally, keep in mind to never cook and eat brown rice. This is because impurities in the stones are probably still present. Ideally, you can scatter them on the soil as a sign of thanks for their service.
Meditating for the Gemstones.

This method is one of the easiest and quickest to follow. Of course, water immediately removes negative energies from the gemstones. As a method, you can either use rainfall water or tap water.
If you opt to use rainfall water, place the gemstones outside for 4 to 5 minutes if it’s heavily raining. But, if you prefer tap water, you can place the gemstones in a colander or a strainer, and turn on the faucet on top of the stones. Finally, let loads of tap water to run through them for 10 minutes.
Cleanse with Salt Water.
Bathing the cleansing crystals in salt water is one of the most common cleaning methods due to historical reasons. In time, religions and rituals have been using salt water as a vessel to draw away negative energies and entities.
For this, pour regular water on a bowl, mix a pinch of sea salt on it, and submerge your cleansing crystals in the water overnight. However, if you happen to live in near the beach, you can soak them under the sea using a mesh bag. After soaking, rinse them with regular water to remove residues.
