Crystal comes in many forms, for example, natural raw type, refined into jewelry accessories like crystal bracelets, necklace, or ring. Regardless of the form, most of the crystals absorb and give energy.

Therefore, it is important to cleanse the crystals regularly to neutralize any built-up negative energy.

There are many cleansing methods, so try out some to find the right one that suit your crystal bracelets.

1. Use Larger Crystals or Clusters

You can use larger quartz crystals like purple amethyst geodes to clear the negative energies. Simply place your crystal bracelets inside or on top of the larger stones for 1 day to be effective. It is believed that the vibration of the larger stones can aid in clearing any negative energies that remain in the bracelets.

2. Water

Water can help to neutralize the negative energy accumulated in the crystal bracelets. It is best to use natural water like rainfall, mineral water, instead of running tap water. This is because there might be unknown chemical added to the tap water which can hurt the crystals.

3. Sound

With the purpose in mind, the vibration of sound is a good tool to cleanse crystals. There are a wide range of tools to achieve the cleansing effect, for example, a singing bowl, bell and chime and many more.

You can place the crystal bracelet inside the singing bowl and strike the mallet to produce a ringing sound. Rub the rim of the bowl in clockwise direction to produce a continuous sound. This sound will produce positive vibes and cause the negative energy to disperse.

5. Sunlight / Moon Bath

Allow your crystal bracelets to embrace the light of the moon to establish a connection with this special energy. It is said that the full moon is the best time to do the cleansing because it is more effective.

Sunlight is a natural way to cleanse the crystal, but it is only suitable for some. Intense and continuous exposure to direct sunlight can make certain crystal fade too, so do not expose it in the sun.

6. Salt Water

Similiar to the concept of Feng Shui salt water cure, salt help to neutralize negative energy from the environment.

It is a much simpler way to cleanse the crystal bracelet. You just need to immerse or wash the bracelet in the salt water to remove the negative energy.

Note: Some crystals might degrade using salt water so before you use this method, you should study its composition first.

When or how often do I need to cleanse my crystals?

It is advisable to cleanse the bracelets when you just got it. This will help to remove any residue energy from the previous owners or anyone handling it before you. As for the frequency, there is no hard and fast rule. As long as you feel that there is a need to cleanse crystal bracelet, just do it.
