5 Crystals for 5 Intentions

When choosing a crystal, it is helpful to identify what it is that you are wanting from it - that could be bringing something additional into your life or removing negative aspects within your life.

Tips for use:

Cleansing your Crystals

Crystals are said to absorb the negative energy that you’re aiming to release, therefore it’s important to cleanse your crystals regularly (usually once per month) to ensure this energy is dispersed and the crystals can continue to work to their full potential.

Smoke cleansing is one of the most popular methods to cleanse crystals and involves using the smoke of smouldering medicinal herbs in order to remove negative energy. Throughout history, Indigenous people around the world have used smoke cleansing within ceremonial practices in order to clear negative energy from objects, rooms or people’s energy fields.

Sage bundles and incense are commonly used to cleanse crystals. Ensure you have a suitable container to burn them in and open a window so allow the energy to flow out of the room. Hold the crystals in the smoke and visualise the crystal being cleansed with new, refreshing energy.
