Classify: Remove as much wax as possible before the cleaning process and submit a photo to Soul Terra for identification. We can give you the names of the stones, their properties, and a reading - just ask!
Cleanse: Once the crystals have been identified, do a quick google search to determine whether they can be safely cleansed in water.
YES: Boil water on the stove, remove from heat, and drop crystals in. Allow them to soak for a few minutes to allow the wax to melt off before taking them out with a pair of tongs. Scrub gently with a soft toothbrush to get wax out of the crevices.
NO: Lightly dampen a dishcloth and place it in your microwave for 20 seconds to make a warm compress. Gently rub the crystals with the compress to work the wax off. You can also wrap the crystals in the warm towel for a few minutes to allow the wax to soften before gently scrubbing with a soft toothbrush.
Charge: If you plan to use your crystals for their metaphysical properties, there are a few ways you can give your stones an extra boost and refresh their energy after use! There is no right or wrong method - just use what feels best for YOU!
THE FULL MOON: Once a month, place your stones outside or on a window sill under the full moon to soak up its power and promises of abundance.
MOON WATER: Like the method above, place a bowl of water under the full moon and keep it in a jar to be used throughout the month. Remember what crystals can be submerged in water from your previous “Cleanse” research, and either place them in the container or pour some water over them.
SMOKE CLEANSE: Burn incense or herbs and wave the smoke around your crystals to cleanse the negative energy that your crystals may have soaked up.
