How to Care for Your Crystals

You received a Crystal, now what? Your new stone or crystal emits positive energies all the time, but due to its capacity of "memory" it may also be overloaded with disharmonious energies. In this state it has its ability to emit positive energy reduced.

But the good news is that through simple procedures we can clean, energise and direct your energies towards the purpose we want.

The whole process is summarised in performing the following 3 steps in the order in which they are presented: Cleaning, Activating and Storing.

Cleaning Your Crystals

Before crystals can start to benefit you, you need to pay attention to some care. The crystals need to be activated and tuned to their specific frequency. The first step is a thorough cleansing to get rid of the vibrations they may have received before they reached you, and the second is an activation and a blessing.

I'll explain how to clean crystals, you have some options. You can use the full moon but if you don't want to wait until there, you can use the smoke of an incense or Palo Santo. You can also use other cleansing crystals, such us Selenite.

We particularly recommend the use of a Selenite bowl for crystals in jewelry because it doesn't damage the metal and it is quite practical. You clean them every day in a easy way. You arrive home and place your jewelry in the bowl. Try it and you see it.

For several stones you can use water. Just keep them under running water for a few minutes. Natural fonts of running water are the best – ocean, rivers, lakes – but if you don’t have access, tap running water works, or leave in a ball with water and salt (the more natural the salt is, the better).

IMPORTANT NOTES: Not ALL crystals can go under water. Besides, do not leave polished crystals in salt water for a long time or directly in contact with the salt, as this can eliminate its external shine.

Then put them in the sun for a few hours. If there is no sun available, visualize a bright white light radiating to the crystals. It is very important that the crystals are always cleaned after use for healing. Note: Some crystals, such as Amethyst, can lose color if exposed to the sun for a long time.

Now if you feel that the crystal is too "heavy" or needs "extra" cleaning and recharging, bury it in a garden for some time (at least 24 hours). It will return to his natural state and be in full energy again!

Activating your Crystals

You have already learned how to clean crystals and also how to store them. But it is also very important that you activate your crystals.

Crystals emit a beneficial natural vibration all the time, however, to increase their strength, we can add information that we want the crystal to emit together with its vibrations.

To program your crystal, you must first relax your mind and body well, empty your thoughts and put all your mental focus on the crystal or stone you want to program. To activate them, hold the crystals in your hands. Close your eyes and focus on them. See them surrounded by bright white light. Ask them to be tuned to their own unique frequency and to be activated to act as healers and or protectors at any level you may need now or at any time in the future.

We can, for example, program a quartz crystal that emanates purification vibrations to also facilitate meditation in the environment. We can also reinforce the type of energy in a crystal. For example, we can program a crystal that already emits frequencies of prosperity (like a citrus) to also emanate energies favorable to business.

Ask that the crystals be blessed by the highest energies in the universe and dedicate themselves to their self-healing and that of the environment around them. If you are trained in other energy healing modalities, such as Theta Healing or Reike, you can use the practices thought in the courses.


Storing Your Crystals

In addition to knowing how to clean crystals it is important to know where to store your crystals!

Now that you've figured out how to clean crystals, I'm going to teach you how to store them. The best way to store your healing stones is in a tissue bag, they can be kept together and ready to use at any time.

Other alternatives are: keep the crystal in your pocket, keep it on your desk or next to your bed. Be aware, however, that the crystals kept in your environment absorb negative energy and therefore need regular cleaning.

Enjoy your crystals! Any questions, don´t hesitate to DM us on Instagram or send an email to

With Love,
