"I’m a beginner of using crystals. I want to know how often do you cleanse crystals? Do you have to set intention with them every-time you cleanse them?"



Hi there S,

Thank you for reaching out to us.

Crystals should be cleared before and after use:

  • Before use if you've just gotten it and before use if you haven't used it in a LONG time.
  • After use in case the meditation or healing session was quite "hectic" or emotional.

Crystals pick up energy very easily and just like clutter in our lives leaves a lower vibration, energetic debris does the same for crystals. A good clearing is like what a good clean or shower is for us. Over time you get the feel so you may not clean it after use all that much because not all that much energetic work was done, but this comes over time when you have better tapped into your stone.

The various methods include: smudging, singing bowl, water (best for tumbled crystals), prayer, breath, moonlight, sunlight (use with caution), salt, rice and more. You can read more in-depth about this here -> How to Clear Crystals

There are various methods for charging and clearing crystals, most of them overlapping because charging is a form of clearing for some people and programming for others. Crystals aren't reusable batteries but they do need to be cleared on a regular basis, so make sure you're clear about what you want to achieve when you want to charge your stones.

You don't HAVE to set an intention every time you use your crystal if you're using it for the same thing over a long period. You also don't have to set that intention after clearing. Clearing only removes the intention when that's your intention: to remove prior intentions or programming.

I trust this helps :)
