Cleansing & Charging your Crystals

Posted by Sandra Hickey on

If you're reading this it's likely you have at least one crystal, and you want to find out more about cleaning and charging. I'm here to help.

Think of your crytals as little filters, they absorb negative energy and transform it into postitive vibes, this means they will need regular cleaning and charging to work properly. 


There is no set rule as to how often you should clean and charge, it depends on how much you are using a particular stone or if you feel it's not working as well as it used to. A great time to schedule a clean and charge for is the night of a full moon. 

The Full Moon is when we release, forgive and let go of the things which are no longer serving us. In the same way, we can release all the negative energy your crystal has absorbed. 

This is a vital process in manifestation because it creates space for fresh  thought processes, people and experiences to come into our lives and releases any bad energy we’ve been holding on to.

Creating a crystal Milk Bath, where you bathe with your crystals is a very effective way of cleansing. The natural ingredients and mineral salts will draw out those bad vibes.

Take a small bowl and fill with some of your fresh Milk Bath water before you get in, place on your bath board or on the floor beside you, carefully place your crystals in the bowl to cleanse them and then drain the water from the bowl as you drain the bath following your own detoxifying soak.

Please note some crystals really don't like to get wet so keep them dry on your bath board while you bathe.

  • Rose Quartz
  • Amethyst
  • Smokey Quartz

  • Agate
  • Moonstone

  • Lapis Lazuli (a quick dip is ok)
  • Ulexite
  • Labradorite 
  • Carnelian
  • Celestite
  • Pyrite
  • Hematite

Once they have bathed, dry them gently and if you can, lay them out to charge in the moonlight. Hold each stone in your hand before you place it down and charge it with your own intentions.

Do you want your amethyst to help you find more serenity? Have you unresolved anger issues your Turquoise could help you with? See our crystal guide for the spiritual meaning behind your stones and synch your intention to their benefits.



Place on the ground or a natural substance (wood /cotton fabric) and allow them to soak up the divine feminine powers of the Full Moon overnight. 

Don't worry if you can't get outside, line your crystals up on the windowsill and they will still reap the Full Moon benefits. 

Don't leave them out too long after sunrise as their vibrant colours can fade. A little sun exposure in small doses does them no harm.


You can also use smoke to cleanse your crystals by burning sage/ lavender or incense and allowing the smoke to waft over your beautiful stones. 

Your crystals are now ready to work with you on your spiritual journey.
