How To Cleanse and Charge Your Crystals: The Right Way

cleansing and charging crystals

Let’s first take a moment to admire the beauty in this photo that I took today. It’s almost like I have my own crystal garden.

However, before I talk about you can create your own bohemian-inspired crystal charging station, I wanted to direct you over to this post about the best crystals to attract money – not only to discover which crystals have helped me manifest financial abundance, but to also have a basic understanding of how crystals help with your manifestation and what exactly to do with them once you’ve made your purchase.

Do you feel comfortable now? Okay, now let’s talk about how to charge and cleanse your crystals. This is especially important for spiritual novices. Perhaps you are wondering what the differences between cleaning and charging a crystal are.

If you like, think of it as your skincare routine. To cleanse your skin, first wash it with water to get rid of all the bad stuff from the day. Next, charge your skin overnight with creams, serums, and other products to increase its power.

Crystals can become depleted or hold a lot negativity energy. This is why it is important to cleanse and charge your crystals regularly, just like your skin routine.

Today I’d like to discuss how you can clean and charge crystals. But, each crystal is unique, so I suggest you check out online advice before you do any cleaning.

Crystals with the “ite”, such as selenite or fluorite, should not go in water. Tumble stones, like rose quartz, and tourmaline, can be placed in water overnight.



Running water– To cleanse your crystals, run them under running water for one minute and then move your fingers across them to remove any negative energy.

Salt waterTo submerge crystals, add a teaspoon of pink Himalayan or regular table salt to a bowl of warm water. You can use your intuition to determine how long they should be submerged. You can leave them submerged for as long as you like. For example, since I charge my crystals every month, I leave mine for one hour. However, if it’s the first time you have charged or cleansed your crystals in a while, I would leave them overnight.

SagingA great way to restore crystals’ natural energy is to use sage for cleansing. My crystals are often washed under water, dried off and then saged individually while I listen to healing music. This ritual has become a favorite of mine around the full moon.

VisualisationUsing your thoughts to purify your crystals can be an extremely powerful way to get rid of any negative energy attached. As you meditate, hold each crystal in one hand and visualize a bright white light surrounding it. The crystal should feel lighter when you meditate.


Create a crystal charging station– I was so excited to create this crystal charging station and share it with you. This is a simple and stylish way to charge your crystals.Terrariums made of gold and glassThis bag is for Amazon Himalayan saltYou can use fine salt, but I used coarse salt. As my hands hovered for a few minutes, I meditated and visualized a white energy filling this box. I then ground the crystals into salt and left it to rest overnight at the window, waiting for the moon’s return. If you make your own charging station, please tag me on Instagramthemanifestationcollective.

Enjoy the sun outsideYou can charge crystals using the earth’s natural resources. However, it is very powerful so, if you have the opportunity – which is unlikely in the UK – let your crystals get charged by the sun every now and then. Place them so that they are not in shadow and fully exposed to sunlight.

Make intentions under the moon– This is part of my monthlyNew moon ritualTo cleanse my crystals, I use the above method and then place them on my balcony in the moonlight. It doesn’t matter if it’s cloudy, if they should be placed directly under the moon or outside. I will tell you this: I have done all these things and the crystals feel lighter. This is an indicator that they are being cleansed and charged.

Relax in the soilYou can allow your crystals to reconnect with the earth by overnight burying them in soil. You don’t need a garden to be powerful. An indoor plant can also be grown with soil.

To get the most out of your crystals, whether you use them for healing or to amplify energy, I recommend that you keep up with your cleansing and charging process.

I would say that my crystals are like antiques. I take care of them with delicate fingers and make sure they are kept clean every month.

How can you program crystals after they have been charged and cleansed?

It’s simple. As you sit down in peace and quiet, take each one in your hands. These stones have a crystalline structure that is believed to hold thoughts and energies. So, sit down and speak your intention loudly for the crystals to hold.

My rose quartz, for example, I use the words: I charge this crystal with love. My citrine has the words: I charge this crystal to welcome money easily and effortlessly into my life.

Holding each one in your hands, pay attention to how it makes you feel.
