Mother Earth is the best way to Cleanse and Charge Crystals. All crystals and stones are from Mother Earth. Other methods include using sunlight, moonlight, or rinsing in water. Incense and intentions are for stones that cannot get wet or left in the Sun due to fading.

Should You Charge Your Stones?

Absolutely charge and power them up! Many people working with stones and crystals believe it is important to charge them regularly. The idea is that stones absorb and store energy, and over time this energy can become depleted.

By charging the stones, you are replenishing their power and ensuring they can continue supporting you effectively.

If you are short on time, you can charge your stones quickly by holding them in your hands and visualizing light or energy flowing into them.

The practice of charging stones is common. By charging a stone, you can infuse it with your energy intention, which can then be used to facilitate healing.


Alternatively, you can place the stone on a piece of Selenite or another amplifying crystal overnight.

Once the stone is charged, it is ready to be used again.

Attract Positive Energy with Gemstones


Crystals and stones are beautiful and powerful tools that you can use to improve your spiritual life.

Stone’s energy can help you attract positive energy, release negative energy, increase your spiritual growth, and achieve your dreams.

However, crystals and stones must first be cleansed and charged to be effective. Unless you have personally mined them from the earth and no one else has ever touched them.

It would be best to eliminate unwanted energy the healing crystals have picked up along the way to you.

Crystal healing is amplified using crystal cleansing and charging techniques.

This supports physical healing, energetic activation, raising positive vibrations, and dissolving of negative energies.

Best Way to Charge and Cleanse

Mother earth has Ancient wisdom and strength that can cleanse, charge, and amplify your stones. The earth crystals. What better way?

When you connect your stones to earth, they soak up their energy and become cleansed of any negative or stuck energies they may have picked up from you or anyone else.

Stones and crystals that live in major cities need more Cleansing.

There is mental and emotional energy pollution in cities, and crystals are very sensitive to all this.


Additionally, the earth has been used for centuries to cleanse and charge stones.

When you place your stone on the earth, it will absorb negative energy and impurities.

At the same time, it will absorb the earth’s natural energy, which can help cleanse and purify your stone.

This process amplifies the energies of your stone, making it even more potent after a cleanse charge with the earth.

Healing Properties of Mother Earth with charging and cleansing stones

To cleanse and charge your stones, you’ll need to bury them in the ground overnight. This opens up the healing properties of the stone or crystal. Make sure to bury them in a safe place where they won’t be disturbed.

In the morning, dig them up and brush off any dirt or debris. Your stones are now cleansed and charged! Bring along some of your favorite crystals and stones the next time you go on a hike or camping trip.

Spend some time sitting or walking barefoot on the earth, and allow your stones and you to soak up its energy. According to some studies, interacting with nature can help to reduce stress levels and improve overall well-being.

There is a reason why nature heals. Suppose you do not live in an area or have a yard to bury your crystals and stones. Go to a park and sit with your stones for an hour.

Cover stones that cannot be in the sunlight due to fading with a towel or fabric. This will be good for you too. Take your shoes off and ground yourself out next to your stones.

Think about what energy you need to support your grounding, then just let it appear. If you don’t see anything, just let the earth’s love run through you as a feeling.


Our crystals and stones were made from the earth, and so are our bodies.

Mother earth has ancient wisdom. Mother nature knows how to build crystals, stones, human bodies, and fish. Every being is made from her materials.

Mother Nature’s wisdom is divine and unparalleled.


Natural Sunlight to Cleanse and Charge Crystals

When using natural sunlight to cleanse and charge your crystals, it’s essential to ensure they’re not in direct sunlight for too long.

Sunlight is a powerful energy source that can help cleanse your crystals of any negative energy they have absorbed.

However, this can cause the crystal to overheat and crack if left outside in the heat for too long.

Place your crystals on a windowsill or outside for an hour, then bring them back inside.


f you live in an area without much natural light, use full-spectrum LED lights.

These lights emit a type of light that is closest to natural sunlight.

However, not all crystals and gemstones can go into the sunlight as they will fade or turn a different color because they are light-sensitive.

Amethyst and citrine crystals should not be placed in sunlight. Otherwise, the color will fade.

If you do not know whether your crystals are light-sensitive or not, then I would use earth cleansing and charge as the method.

Moonlight is used to Cleanse Crystals.

Moonlight is another excellent way to cleanse and charge your crystals. Like the Sun, moonlight is a powerful source of energy that can help remove any negative energy from your crystals.

Place your crystals outside overnight or for at least six hours so that they can absorb the moon’s powerful energy.

If you live in a city or an area with many people, you can place your crystals on a windowsill where they will still be exposed to moonlight. Consider using a full moon with prolonged exposure if you want to charge your crystals with extra power.

Cleansing and charging stones with the power of the full moon energy

The energy of a full moon is said to be incredibly powerful, so this is a great time to cleanse and charge your crystals.

Modern-day crystal healers use this cleansing energy for stones to harness the crystal’s energy.

Third eye energy work can be done on a full moon with your crystals as everything will shine brighter with the full moon light surrounding you increasing the energy of certain crystals.

Even tides rise in the ocean, we are made from a large percentage of water, so this total moon energy affects not only crystals but humans and other beings.


New Moon cleansing and charging crystals are very subtle yin energy.

The new moon is a time of new beginnings, so this is an ideal time to set your intention for what you want to achieve with your crystals.

Hold your crystals in your hand and state your intention in a whisper, then place them outside to absorb the powerful energy of the new moon.


The new moon energy is when you want to start a new project, job, or life situation.

It is also a time to cleanse and recharge your crystals.

The new moon is the perfect time to cleanse your crystals because the energy is subtle and gentle.

The new moon is ruled by yin and feminine energy.

Moon Bathing with Crystals


Women’s moon cycles are affected by the moon. You can go under a full moon and ensure your chin is exposed if you’re a woman to help your monthly cycle become regular and balance your emotions.

The chin of a woman is a moon point. Now hold your favorite crystal.

A crystal associated with the moon is preferred to set your moon cycle back on track to normalcy. Pearls, moonstones, and white opals are great for women and moon bathing.

This helps when you are traveling a lot, have hormonal issues, are getting off birth control, are stressed, Or just would like to balance your yin energy.

Experiment and see how this affects your menstrual cycle. Mine usually resets itself after about 11 days of this for 10-15 minutes an eve.

It is called moon bathing. This is a fun way to bring women back to their natural state.

Companion Crystals

Specific energy from other crystals can clear away negativity and cleanse your crystals. Companion crystals.

Yes, you can use cleansing stones to cleanse crystals. Some crystals act as cleansing crystals. For example, clear quartz amplifies other crystals’ and stones’ energy. Other stones purify and cleanse crystals.

I have always thought this is amazing how some stones assist other stones in purging negative energy while amplifying the crystal’s healing powers.

Crystals have long been used as energetic counterparts.

Many different crystals can be used for Cleansing and charging, but some of the most popular choices include quartz and Selenite.


To cleanse a crystal or stone, hold it in your hand with the other crystal that needs to be cleansed and visualize White Light surrounding and infusing it.

You can place the crystal with the cleaning energy of the companion crystals by leaving them overnight.

It is good to keep cleansing stones in your crystal healing kit.

For example, if you have a substantial piece of Selenite, about 12 to 24 inches, you can place the smaller stones on the larger incorporating crystals for quick charge and cleanse. 

Water method for cleansing crystals


Water is another effective cleaning method. You can use fresh saltwater, distilled water, moon water, or sun water to cleanse your stones and crystals with new energy.

To use moon water, leave the water under full or new moon overnight for no longer than 8 hours and bring it back inside. Then rinse your crystal off with it.

With sun water, you can charge the water in direct sunlight for 12 hours straight. Then use the water for a crystal rinse.

Before using water, make sure your crystal will not dissolve.

For example, calcite has a Mohs hardness of 3, which means it’s relatively soft and prone to dissolving. Other stones with high Mohs hardness can be left overnight in water. So, if you’re going to use salt water or any watering method, check their Mohs hardness first.

Himalayan Salt Purifies

Salt is a purifying agent used for centuries to cleanse and charge crystals.

Himalayan pink salt or sea salt is the best salt for this purpose. Simply add one tablespoon salt to one cup of water in a glass container.

Chemical table salt, iodized salt, should not be used for this purpose.

Allow the crystals to soak in the solution for at least 2 hours and -24 hours maximum.


After this time, rinse the crystals off with cool water and allow them to air dry. Your crystals will be cleansed and ready to use.

You’ll notice that they feel lighter and more powerful after being cleaned using water.

Most tumbled stones and clear quartz can be used in any water cleansing method.

You can also use salt as a spray mister for cleaning if you do not want to soak them overnight.

Incense and Sage or Palo Santo

Excellent cleanser for stones and crystals.


Smudging is a powerful cleansing technique used on stones and crystals. Sage, thyme, rosemary, and palo santo are excellent for clearing negative energy.

Incense is also an excellent tool for Cleansing. The smoke from the incense helps to disperse negative energy and cleanse the area.

When smudging, it is essential to use intention. Focus on your intention to cleanse the stones and crystals and release any negative energy.

Sage is known for its cleansing properties, and when used as part of a smudging ritual, it can help remove negative energy and restore balance not only to your crystals and stones but to the space as well.

When smudging, Ensure you won’t be interrupted, and take a few deep breaths to center yourself.

Then light your smudge or incense stick and allow the smoke to go over your stones and crystals. As you do so, visualize the smoke cleansing away any unwanted energy or impurities.

When you’re finished, extinguish safely and give thanks.

Essential oils

Method for Crystal and Stone activation.

Numerous studies have shown that these high frequencies assist in raising the frequency of the human body.

Therefore, selecting an essential oil with a high or harmonious frequency is vital to obtain the maximum benefit for your stones and crystals. Everything in the universe is constantly vibrating at a frequency. 

Crystals vibrate at frequencies. Everything is. The average frequency of the human body is between 62-72 MHz.

Different things we come in contact with can raise or lower this frequency. For example, essential oils have high frequencies ranging from 52 MHz to 320 MHz.

Some have even claimed that essential oils currently have the highest frequency of any organic substance known.


Dried herbs have very high frequencies as well. Each essential oil has a different frequency for each person.

Frankincense has a frequency of 147 MHz, Lavender has a frequency of 118 MHz, Myrrh is at 105 MHz, Sandalwood has a frequency of 98 MHz, Peppermint has a frequency of 78 MHz, and Rose oil has one of the highest frequencies of all essential oils, registering at 320 MHz.

When humans or crystals come in contact with high frequencies, it can raise vibrational frequencies and promote desired effects.

Rose Oil and Rosewater


You can cleanse and charge yourself.

A favorite elixer oil is rose water mixed with a couple of drops of rose oil. Also, mix them with pure distilled water. The mix is easy to remember but generally, for every 6 ounces of water, 6 drops rose water and 6 drops of essential oil.

Rose oil is one of the highest frequencies in the entire essential oil crystal elixir.

Please ensure they are small stones with a high Mohs hardness scale inside your essential oil cleansing mix .

Clear quartz with rose quartz is an excellent option if you want an all-around stones for the elixir.

Charge and cleanse with your thoughts and feelings. Our thoughts are powerful.

Our thoughts are powerful things. Thoughts become things. They can shape our reality and influence the universe around us.

Quantum science has shown us that our mind affects matter – our thoughts affect the world around us and what we experience.

When we charge crystals and stones with high-frequency thoughts and emotions, we project our energy into the universe and attract what we desire.

This is how manifestation works. We attract what we think about, what we focus on, and what we feel strongly about.

So if you want to magnetize something positive into your life, fill your thoughts and heart with high-frequency energy. Focus on what you desire, project your intention into the universe while holding your crystal or gemstone, and trust that it will come to you.

Crystals support manifestation, intention, and creation

Do not talk about this to anyone.Not under any circumstances unless you are manifesting with someone.This is between you and god, divine power, the universe, Jesus, Buddha, whoever, or whatever.The power of your thoughts and feelings has an immense impact – use this gift consciously.This means not indulging in thoughts of things that you don’t want.You are always creating something in your mind, so use it wisely and create scenarios in your head you would like to experience.Play and have fun.

Sound Cleansing

The sound of the bowls cleanses the energy field around and in the stones, resetting them to their natural high vibratory state.

This process can also be used to activate and charge new stones. Sound bowls are made of different materials, each with its unique frequency.

When these frequencies are combined, they create a powerful healing effect.

The music of the bowls helps to clear blockages and restore balance. It is also beneficial for releasing stress and promoting harmony.

Crystal sound bowl healing is a simple and effective way to cleanse and activate the energies of crystals and stones.


Sound Cleansing with Tuning Forks

A-Tuning fork can also be used, but you will want to use it harmoniously with the octave of your stone.

Use the same vibration as your stone. Each tuning fork is used for different chakra and frequencies. The same goes for stones.

Find out what your stone naturally vibrates at. Then pair them that way.

Think of Cleansing As a Purification and Charging as an Activation of Energy.

When you are cleansing your crystals and gemstones, you purify them, and these methods of purifying your stones support you in purifying yourself.
