Cleansing a Crystal with White Sage
This is a really quick video about how to cleanse a crystal with white sage
The crystal, I’m using is bloodstone with lots of gorgeous greens and red’s running through it and then all you need is a piece of white sage.
You can use a smudge stick or as I have done here, I’ve just broken this piece off of a smudge stick.
Bloodstone is a great crystal for energy and getting you to move about more.
According to the legend and this is taken from the Crystal 365 book by Heather Askinosie
A piece of jasper was lying below Christ at his crucifixion and that the blood fell onto the green Jasper and was said to forever stained it creating bloodstone.
It is known that it is good for helping with problems with the kidneys and the blood.
The Babylonians and ancient Egyptians both believed the stone to increase their personal strength and ancient warriors also believed this and actually carried it with them and they took it into battle to stop the bleeding when it was applied to a wound
Light your sage and then get the crystal into the smoke, can you see all the beautiful smoke coming from the white sage?
Cleanse it in there for about 30 seconds and let the sage do its work on the crystal
This is also a brilliant way of cleansing your hands too as white sage is said to kill up to 94% of airborne bacteria, so you could just put your hands over the sage to cleanse them.
So if you’re feeling a bit sluggish, or a bit low in energy then the bloodstone is a brilliant crystal to use to re-energize your whole body
There are different ways that you can cleanse a crystal but my preferred method is using sage because it’s such a fabulous cleanser. You can also use incense and you can use water, but you need to be careful because water can damage quite a lot of crystals particularly a selenite that will crumble in water and angelite will lose its blue glow and will go completely dull.
So ideally you want to be avoid putting crystals in water as much as possible
The ash of the white sage is actually really good for your plants, it will help them to thrive and grow as it will feed the plants. So don’t throw any of your ash away from your smudge sticks just collect it all together and put it over your plants.
There we go, if you do have any questions just pop them in the comments and I’ll come back to you and answer them.
