How to Cleanse Your Crystals: New Moon Edition

How to Cleanse Your Crystals: New Moon Edition

One of the best times to cleanse and charge crystals, is on the New Moon and Full Moon of every month.

The New Moon is a time of releasing and new beginnings, making it the perfect time to clear your crystals of any old and stagnant energy.

After washing and drying your crystals set them out on the earth for their full moon bath. If you are unable to place them directly on the ground, any natural surface will work.

If you are concerned with leaving crystals outdoors you can place crystals inside by a window or inside a car by the windshield so they can bathe in the moon or sun without the fear of getting the crystals wet, lost, or damaged by weather.  

The next day, let them charge for a few hours in morning sunlight. Many crystals like Amethyst, Aquamarine, Citrine, Fluorite, Rose Quartz, and Smoky Quartz for example will fade in direct sunlight so we charge our crystals just for the sunrise and then pull them back inside.

Here are a few other ways to cleanse your crystals other than in the moon or sun:

  • A simple rinse under the faucet will do here. If you live near the ocean or a stream it’s optimal to wash them there.

  •  Another nature method is using the earth. Placing your crystal on or in the ground, or burying it in the dirt can have a powerful cleansing and energetic reset effect.

  • You can cleanse your crystals with other crystals. Selenite is one of the most popular crystals used to cleanse and charge other crystals and stones due to its powerful metaphysical properties and the ability to charge itself. Another great crystal for cleansing other crystals is Quartz.

  • White smoke is another method you can use to cleanse your crystals. White Sage smoke is a great tool to cleanse your crystals and their environment. You can hold the stones in a stream of the sage smoke, or simply hold a sage stick close to the crystal with the intention of cleansing it.

There are plenty of different methods of cleansing crystals and after some time you will find what works best. We hope you find a moment to connect to yourself and you crystals this new moon.
