5 ways to cleanse and charge your crystals

Crystals are wonderful healing tools but you have to cleanse and charge your crystals in order for them to work in the long run. You can do it with these simple methods.

After being used for a while, your crystals start losing their energy and vibrance — when you cleanse and charge your crystals you restore their natural state.

Also, before crystals make their way to you, they'll have been handled by multiple people. As a result, your crystals pick up energies from their handlers.

That's why it's super important to cleanse your gemstones on a regular basis.
