CARE

Our universe is forever in a state of vibration. This state has an effect on humans, causing a raft of health and wellbeing issues that can be alleviated through the comprehensive implementation of crystals into our everyday routines.
With a crystalline lattice structure, crystals assist in keeping us in a constant and stable state. There are varying stimuli that affect our vibration, including music, the environment, electromagnetic and geopathic stress, our level of gratitude and the way in which we suppress our emotions, just to name a few.
To combat such stimuli, crystals emit steady vibrations, balancing the individual and creating a sense of Zen in the space around us.
Caring for your crystals right from the very start is vital in order to maximise their effectiveness. Due to their permeability, crystals need to be cleansed when you first receive them and regularly as part of your maintenance schedule.
There are a number of cleansing methods you can adopt in caring for your crystals:
 
Salt Water - Salt water cleansing is considered one of the most thorough ways to cleanse crystals. Stones that should not be soaked in salt water include crystals that are porous, contain metal or have a water content. Suitable crystals can be left to soak in sea water or water mixed with sea salt. 

Dry SaltHalf-fill a glass bowl with sea salt (or cooking salt) and place your crystals directly into the salt. Do not use a metal bowl. After use, the salt must be thrown away to remove the absorbed an unwanted energies. 

Non-contact SaltThis is considered the safest salt-cleansing method and should be used where the crystals may otherwise be damaged by direct contact with salt. Fill a glass bowl half to two thirds full with dry sea salt (or cooking salt). Then place a smaller glass container or shallow drinking glass and half-bury this glass into the salt. You can then place your crystals directly into the empty glass which is sitting half buried in the dry salt.

Crystal Druse, Bed, Geode or Cluster - All crystals can be cleansed safely by placing them inside an Amethyst Geode Cave overnight or for 24-48 hours. 

Smudging - Burning either Smudge Sticks or Incense Sticks and hold the crystals in the smoke to cleanse the stored energies.

Visualisation – Also known as thought energy, simply hold the crystal and focus on it, visualising a bright white light flowing to and from the crystal. Continue until you are satisfied. 

Charging your crystals is a simple process. Simply leave them to recharge in the sunlight or moonlight. Or for best results, put your crystals out overnight during the solstice, the equinox, the full moon or the new moon. As you get accustomed to your crystals you will be able to feel whether or not they need charging. Some crystals, once cleansed feel ‘raring to go’, others still feel ‘flat’, like they need something else.
To activate your precious crystal, hold it between your hands whilst relaxed, quiet and in a seated position. Focus on regular relaxed breathing. Set a positive intention for your crystal either internally or externally. The idea is that the universe will return to us the positive experiences we seek for ourselves. 
Always take care when cleansing your crystals.
