How To Cleanse Crystals With Incense Sticks

If you’re looking to get your crystals cleansed and energized, try using incense sticks to do the trick! Incense is known to have a purifying effect on the energy fields of people and objects, so burning it in front of your crystals can help them to glow energetically. 

Simply light the incense, place the crystals near the flame, and let them burn for about 10 minutes. Be sure to take breaks in between burns to allow the smoke from the incense to clear out the crystal container.

What are healing crystals

Healing crystals are pieces of natural quartz or other minerals that are said to have healing properties. They can be used in crystal healing, tarot readings, and other forms of divination. In this article, we’ll discuss the different types of healing crystals and their benefits.

Crystals can be used for a variety of purposes, including improving spiritual growth, stemming negative energy, and helping to manifest your dreams. Some of the most popular crystals for healing include quartz, amethyst, rose quartz, and turquoise.

The benefits of using crystals for healing vary depending on the crystal. Quartz is said to promote balance and peace, amethyst is known to stimulate the third eye and help you see your own power, rose quartz is thought to promote self-love and compassion, and turquoise is believed to protect you from negative energy.

If you’re looking to use crystals for healing, be sure to research which ones are most appropriate for your needs. Some crystals can be helpful for general spiritual well-being, while others are specifically designed for healing. 

Why use incense to cleanse your Crystals

You’ll also want to regularly cleanse and recharge your stones, so you don’t accidentally absorb any harmful energies or transfer negative patterns into the stone. Cleansing your crystals with incense is a great way to cleanse them while recharging their energies without damaging the crystals. 

Choose the Right Incense Sticks

When cleansing crystals with incense sticks, it is important to choose the right sticks. Incense that is meant for purification should not have a strong scent, as it will overpower the crystals. Stick varieties that are good for cleansing crystals include White Sage, Palo Santo, Juniper, Lavender, Mugwort and any strong tibetan based wooded scents. An all round incense that can be used is Tibetan holy incense. This incense can be found and bought from our webshop. We also store Chakra Rope incense which has over 40 herbs including mugwort, sage and juniper. We have a guide to using Charka Rope incense to cleanse crystals a little further down this page. 

Types of Crystal Cleansing Tools

When it comes to cleansing crystals, there are a variety of tools to choose from. Some people prefer using incense sticks to cleanse their crystals, while others use salt or water. It really all comes down to personal preference and what works best for you.

Here are four different ways to cleanse your crystals using different tools:

1. Incense Sticks: 

The traditional way to cleanse crystals is by using incense sticks. Simply light the incense and hold the stick over the crystal for several minutes. The smoke from the incense will help to clear out any negative energy or contaminants.

2. Salt: 

Another popular way to cleanse crystals is by using salt. Simply sprinkle a small amount of salt over the crystal and stir it around with your hand or a spoon. The salt will help to remove any unwanted energies or contaminants.

3. Water: 

Finally, some people prefer to use water instead of salt or incense sticks when cleansing their crystals. Simply wet your hand and gently scrub the crystal with it until it is clean. Make sure to rinse off the crystal well with water afterwards to remove any remaining residues.

4. Crystal Cleansing Spray: If you are using a crystal cleanser, you can simply spray it on and gently rub your crystals until they are clean. Some people like to use an incense stick or salt to help cleanse the crystals first, then spray their cleanser directly on the surface of the crystal. Although this method is not necessary, it will remove any residue that may have built up on your crystals after they were used in rituals or energy work. 

Make sure to dry your crystals off before storing them, as they can become damaged over time when exposed to moisture. If you have crystals that are no longer used in rituals or are not being used in an energy system, it is best to cleanse them at this point. You may also want to go ahead and wash the crystals with a cleanser if you want to get rid of any negative energy attached to the crystal. 

There are many types of cleansers available on the market that come in different forms. You can use standard crystal cleaners, rubbing alcohol and even baby wipes which can be purchased at any store and work very well at removing earth energies from your crystals. If you don’t want to use a cleanser, simply wipe down all the surfaces where your crystal has been sitting or laying down on.

Crystal Cleansing without Incense Stick

When it comes to cleansing crystals, using incense sticks is normally the best method. As we have stated Incense sticks have a variety of properties that can help cleanse crystals, such as their ability to lift negative energy and stimulate the spiritual realm. However incense sticks can also be used in conjunction with other crystal-cleansing methods. Find below our top two methods to clean crystals without using incense sticks. 

Using a Salt Solution

A salt solution can be an effective way to clean crystals. Dissolve a teaspoon of salt in a cup of warm water and soak the crystals for several hours or overnight. Be sure to rinse them off well before using them again.

The following crystals are not safe to immerse or dissolve in water: Apophyllite, Azurite, Celestite, Fluorite, Halite, Hematite, Lepidolite, Malachite, Pyrite, Ulexite, Tangerine Quartz and Opal. 

Using a Crystal Cleaner

There are many crystal-cleaning products available on the market, and each has its own specific method of cleaning crystals. Some popular crystal cleaners include chamomile tea, vinegar, lemon juice, baking soda, and lavender oil. It’s important to choose a cleaner that is specifically designed for crystals, as not all cleaners will work well on them. Test out a few different cleaners before choosing the one that works best for your crystals.

How to clean your crystals with incense

There are a few ways to keep your crystals from absorbing negativity. One of them is to burn incense near them to get rid of any dormant energy before it has the chance to enter.

To clean your crystals with incense you must start with your surroundings.  Like most rituals a space must be set up before any magick is performed or the exercise has no effect. Most tibetan Incense sticks are ideal for setting up a calming environment, however other scents such as White Sage, Palo Santo, Juniper, Lavender and Mugwort have the right notes to help with stress or anxiety by grounding you and opening your mind.

Tibetan Incense is a traditional and ancient cleansing agent, it used to ward off bad spirtus and the practice has been noted in a number of historical texts. To cleanse your crystals with incense simply light your stick and hold the crystal while meditating to cleanse the space around you while letting the smoke move over the crystal. The spiritual fragrance and the smoke act as protective barriers against negativity and other disturbances, and will clear the air of any negative vibrations, allowing you to enter deeper states of meditation, 

Incense clears your crystal of all the negative vibrations and sets it back to its original state as a great source of positive energy. This positive energy can then resonate back into your life through the cleansed crystal.

Using Chakra Rope Incense to Cleanse Crystals. 

If you are looking to clean a number of crystals in one go you can use a bowl and purchase our charka rope incense. This incense has a heavy scent of mugwort and sage and is perfect for cleaning crystals with incense. The mugwort will open your mind and relax the body. To clean the crystals simply place them in a bowl and then place the rope incense next to them so the smoke covers them as the rope incense burns. You can then wash the crystals with water or use a crystal cleaner after the ritual.  

If you’re looking to cleanse your crystals, burning incense sticks can be a great way to do it. Not only are they aromatic and relaxing, but they also help to clear out any negative energy that might be affecting your crystals. Burning incense sticks is an easy way to get started cleansing your crystals and can be done anywhere – at home, in the office, or even outdoors if the weather permits.
