Healing crystals are a fantastic source of spiritual cleansing, but to ensure they maintain their performance, you'll need to cleanse crystals of negative energy too. This is particularly true of crystals that absorb energy. Conscious Items offers a wide range of aura-cleansing crystals, as well as spiritual cleansing kits to keep them in pristine condition.
What Are The Best Crystals For Cleansing?
Whether you're cleansing your home, your energy, or your other crystals, there are some crystal cleansers that seem to purify energy for fun. Usually, clear crystals are the top choice, but there are other purification stones that do the job just as well.
Selenite is widely regarded as the best crystal for cleansing other crystals. Its energy is like a vacuum cleaner for bad vibes; it sucks them up and converts them to positive energy. You can get a Selenite plate that’s specifically designed to cleanse and recharge crystals. Simply leave your stones on top overnight and any stagnant energy that they were harboring will be gone by the morning. Check out how to cleanse crystals with Selenite to learn more about how to use this gorgeous crystal as a purification stone.
Another great self-cleansing crystal, Clear Quartz is ideal for purifying the mind. It helps you let go of unwanted thoughts, energies, and distractions. Clear Quartz is ideal for focus and concentration, pushing you to stay on task and see your work through to the end. It's brilliant for productivity and spiritual cleansing. Healing rituals performed with Clear Quartz tend to be refreshing, to say the least. Its vitality-boosting energy makes it the perfect stone to wear in crystal jewelry. Have it on your person so that it continuously revitalizes your energy.
While this protective powerhouse needs its own energy cleansed regularly, that's only because of its ostensible superpower: it absorbs negative energy from your surrounding environment like a sponge. If you're looking to take advantage of the perks of crystal cleansing in your home, then Black Tourmaline should be your go-to stone. Not just a protective piece, Black Tourmaline is also one of the best chakra-cleansing crystals. It clears, stimulates, and activates the root chakra, grounding your energy and helping you feel more safe and secure.
Rose Quartz is similar to Black Tourmaline in that it still needs to be cleansed, but if you have a specific need for crystal healing, then this pretty pink stone can be a great aid. In particular, Rose Quartz is ideal for emotional healing. If you're looking to release withheld emotions or pent-up energy, then Rose Quartz can facilitate this. It clears negative energies from the heart, making it another top option for chakra cleansing with crystals.
Like Clear Quartz, Citrine is often considered a self-cleansing crystal. This yellow bundle of joy is bursting with positive energy. Anything that seeks to bring you down will be neutralized and deflected. Citrine is thought to represent the sun because of its bright yellow color and happiness-inspiring atmosphere. Its healing properties are amazing and you can see them at their best when clearing doubts, uncertainty, and worries.
Cleansing And Charging Crystals: What Other Ways Are There?
There are a few different ways you can cleanse crystals that don't include other stones. Depending on the crystal, you can leave it under a source of natural light: the full moon is ideal, but direct sunlight works great too. Bear in mind that certain crystals fade in sunlight if their color is bright and vivid. For this reason, only cleanse dull stones in direct sunlight, or leave the colorful ones out for a few hours in the morning or evening when the sun is not at full strength.
Other methods to cleanse and charge crystals include bathing them in rice, saltwater, or running water. Like with sunlight, not all crystals work well in water, so double check your specific stones before using any methods like this.

One of the most popular ways of purifying crystals is by using the smudging technique. This extracts bad energy from your home or your crystals while creating an aroma that refreshes your spirit. It can also be done before other spiritual practices like meditation to clear unwanted energy from your personal space. It makes you feel energetically lighter so it's not hard to see the benefit it has for your crystals: it helps to restore their healing energy so that they work at optimum capacity. After all, what use is a healing crystal if its healing properties are dulled?
To use the smudging technique, try natural white sage. This is a fantastic way of incorporating intention-setting into your cleansing process too. Take a few minutes to hone in on specific intentions. A good rule of thumb is to ensure you can clearly and concisely recite your intention in a short sentence.
Charging crystals during the aftermath of burning white sage can be extremely powerful. If you want to use your metaphorical tuning fork to take this up a notch, then cleanse your space on the night of a full moon. Send unconditional love to your crystals and charge them with your intention while they bask in the hazy light of the moon. Open a window and sit your crystal on the ledge; this way, the smoke can leave and the natural light can come in unrestricted.
