Wet Clearing Methods for Crystals
Do you know how to clear your crystals?
Some of the crystals and minerals should be kept away from the dry salt method including Opal, Hematite, Lapis Lazuli, Pyrite and Selenite. Also, Selenite, Desert Rose, and other salt-based minerals will dissolve in water.
The Wet Methods of Clearing Crystals
- Salt Water
- Holy Water Spray
- Essential Oil Spray
The best wet method approach is to soak your crystals in a mixture of sea salt and water. You may use cooking salt if sea salt is not available. Fill a glass bowl half-full with water and mix in a tablespoon of sea salt. Emerge your crystals in the bowl with the sea salt mixture. Keep your crystals in the mixture for 24 hours or up to one week. When you remove the crystals from the sea salt mixture, rinse them well with cool water to remove any salt residue. Dispose of the salt water mixture. It is important that you do not try to reuse this mixture. It has absorbed negativity from the crystals.
NOTE: Make sure the wet approach will not damage your crystal.
You can spray the crystal with holy water spray to clear it. Make sure that you are able to use the wet method to clear your crystals. You are not able to use the wet method on Selenite crystals. The crystal will dissolve when wet.
You can create a spray with distilled water, witch hazel and a mixture of essential oils. Some essential oils that would be great for a clearing and cleansing spray include:
- Black Spruce
- Lemon Verbena
- Palo Santo
- White Sage
