I cannot stress the importance of cleansing your crystals and minerals. One way I love to cleanse my crystals is by Burning/Smudging White Sage.
Smudging stretches back to the prehistorical era and is used all over the world as a way of cleansing of emotional and spiritual negativity.
Thanks to a remarkable study published by The Journal of Ethnopharmacology in 2007 we know now smudging may be one of the most powerful antiseptic technology. They observed within one hour of smudging caused 94% reduction of bacterial counts within the air. Not only does sage clear emotional and spiritual negativity but it reduces bacteria by a substantial amount! Sage your crystals, room, and even yourself to clear all that old and negative energy.
My name is Amanda-Rachel and I have devoted my life to helping others thru crystal healing and other holistic alternatives. May we heal ourselves, to help others, to heal our Mother Earth.
