I have cleansed my crystals before using running water or bathing them in the light of a Full Moon, but I felt that they have never been properly cleansed until I started using this method recommended by The American Indian: Secrets of Crystal Healing. This book is amazing. It teaches how the Apache and Cherokee tribes care for and use their crystals, all backed up by scientific research…you know how I am about that! Many people don’t realize the science behind the power available from crystals (more about that in another post) so this book teaches how crystals can be used incorrectly and can even be dangerous when not used in the proper manner. For instance, placing crystals on chakra centers is particularly dangerous when several are used at the same time.
OK, back on track here. So this is how I went about with cleansing. This is where I keep my crystals when not being used for one purpose or another (which I still need to get a red cotton cloth for…book explains why):
