There are many ways to cleanse crystals. We recommend the most efficient way - Water Cleansing. Please ensure that the crystal(s) you have purchased is suitable to be in contact with water. We indicate on every crystal listing. For water cleansing, simply let the crystals run under mineral water or running water in your own home for approximately 30 sec during the DAY. You should visualise that the negative energy is leaving with the water while light energy is being replaced. Once you are done, towel dry. NO direct sunlight is required. If the crystals you purchased are not suitable for water cleansing, dust off any dirt with a clean brush and we recommend to place those crystals together with Selenite and Amethyst to cleanse and charge them automatically. Additionally, you may put them near a tealight candle every once a month to clear away energy.

Crystals are pure energy and they absorb energy in order to renew your energy. Allowing others to have contact with your crystals, is allowing the person to infiltrate your energy bubble. Some people who are more sensitive to energy, experience agitation, irritation or giddiness after contacting with crystals that have been touched by others. Therefore, please refrain from allowing others to touch your crystals. (It is a different scenario if parent/child/spouse were to help with the intent activation because your intentions are truly pure.)

May I buy crystals for others?
Absolutely! We highly advise that if the crystal is intended for a friend, let them have first touch. Unless you are a parent/child buying for your child/parent, it is fine for you to create intent on their behalf or touch it. Please indicate in the note section if it is for a friend/spouse, or e-mail to "email@example.com" for special attention.
Is there anything else I would need to know?
Please refrain from bringing your crystals to hospitals or wake unless they are very protective stones (Click here for recommended crystals). Wash the crystals when you are home. If you are working in a hospital, chances are you will need to cleanse them more often. Do not wash your crystals in public toilets, as these places are very high in Yin (negative) energy. You may use mineral water or bring home to wash instead. Lastly, I would like to encourage you to trust my crystals. Even if you are a skeptic who just want to see if this really works or you are purchasing out of desperation, or what it may be, do trust and respect them and its ability.
