Cleansing & Care Instructions

Cleansing and Care instructions will be sent with your order, however, you can refer to this page for details of how to care for your Bracelet.

I would advise that you wear your bracelets on the left hand side of the body as energy enters the body through the left side. However, certain stones such as Tiger's Eye & Obsidian should be worn on the right. This is because these stones are heat generating & could overheat your body.

When cleansing & caring for your Crystals keep it simple! Although some people recommend it, avoid Salt & Water (especially from the tap) as it contains Chlorine which is very corrosive. General misconceptions when cleansing crystals is that Salt & Water are basic cleansers - but DON'T DO IT! You can easily destroy rare & expensive Gemstones with both salt & water (Some will lose their luster and Chrysocolla will certainly turn to rubble)

The safest ways to cleanse & care for your stones involve minimal time and one of the following:

  • The Moon. Place outside or on a windowsill during the period of the Full Moon - it is not necessary to cleanse them for the entire period, one night will do.

  • The Sun. Make sure if you’re sun charging that you put them in direct sunlight, and that you have them there from sun rise to sun set.

  • Bury them. Some people make a ritual of burying their crystals under a full moon, to take advantage of the magnetic forces of the moon in combination with the earth.

  • Smudge them. You can use sweet grass, sage, or even incense to smudge your crystals. Simply pass the crystals through your smudging stick or smoke from an 
    incense and it will be cleared of negative energy.

  • Other crystals. You can cleanse and charge your crystals with other crystals by placing them on a large crystal cluster or generator (single large quartz crystal.)  Citrine in particular is excellent for cleansing the other crystals in your collection. It is automatically self-cleansing, and will cleanse other crystals. 

  • Do nothing! Certain stones require no energizing - Citrine, Amethyst, Smoky Quartz & Crystal Quartz. If any of those stones are combined with other stones they will be cleansed automatically.

When cleansing & caring for your Crystals keep it simple! Although some people recommend it, avoid water from the tap as it contains Chlorine which is very corrosive. General misconceptions when cleansing crystals is that salt water is a basic cleanser - but DON'T DO IT! Personally I would never cleanse my crystals and jewelry in such a severe solution as salt water, you can easily destroy rare & expensive crystals with it - some will lose their luster and others like Chrysocolla, Malachite and Selenite will almost certainly disintegrate.

The safest ways to cleanse & care for your stones involve minimal time and one of the following:

  • The Moon. Place outside or on a windowsill during the period of the Full Moon - it is not necessary to cleanse them for the entire period, one night will do.

  • The Sun. Make sure if you’re sun charging that you put them in direct sunlight, and that you have them there from sun rise to sun set.

  • Bury them. Some people make a ritual of burying their crystals under a full moon in earth or sand, to take advantage of the magnetic forces of the moon in combination with the earth.

  • Smudge them. You can use sweet grass, sage, or even incense to smudge your crystals. Simply pass the crystals through your smudging stick or smoke from an incense and it will be cleared of negative energy.

  • Natural running water. If you are lucky enough to live where you have access to good clear well water that is guaranteed to be free of chemicals, or running water from a creek or river that you know is not polluted, place your crystals and gems in a small container, and let the water run over them, preferably for at least two hours. This will cleanse and re-energize your gems and crystals. Once again be careful as certain stones will actually dissolve in water.

  • Other crystals. You can cleanse and charge your crystals with other crystals by placing them on a large crystal cluster or generator (single large quartz crystal.)  Citrine in particular is excellent for cleansing the other crystals in your collection. It is automatically self-cleansing, and will cleanse other crystals.
