How Should I Store My Crystals?
Healing crystals and crystal jewelry are extremely powerful tools to hold your intention and recalibrate your energy. But crystal lovers have been asking the same questions for ages, like, “how should I store my crystals?” and “how do I cleanse and charge my crystals?. Caring for your crystals and making sure they are energetically optimized is a part-time job, but this guide will help you streamline your crystal care and take your practice to the next level.
Crystal Storage: How to store crystals in your home
Rather than letting your crystals clutter up your space and live in disarray, these solutions to how to store your crystals will help you to keep your crystals, jewelry, and other energy tools organized and clutter-free. Another benefit of using these storage options is that you can keep your crystal energies on display, which makes it easier to interact with them daily. By leaving them out in the open (but still tidy!) you can also allow your stones to fill your space with high vibrations, positive energy, and other healing energies. Plus, the crystals love to be near each other and feed off of each other’s energies! Here are some of our favorite ways to store your crystals:
In a Wood Tray or Bowl
Wood trays or bowls, like our Wood Moon Tray, add an earthy, grounding element to your home environment and your crystal energies. This natural material helps your crystals maintain their natural healing powers.
Our Moon Tray is also the perfect place to keep your moon ritual tools and other items for your monthly moon rituals. Place the crystals and any other lunar essentials inside to make it easy to work with them throughout the moon cycle.
In Brass or Metal Bowls
Known for its purifying effect, brass is a powerful metal for cleansing your stones. It embodies the energy of light, acting as a source of high vibrations for the stones and tools you place inside of it. Our Crystal-Etched Brass Bowl and Flower of Life brass bowl will ensure that your crystal energies are operating at their fullest potential and ready to support your intentions.
Selenite crystals are known for their ability to cleanse and charge the energy around it. Selenite crystal is connected to the energy of light, and holds a very high vibration. Because of this, Selenite does not need to be cleansed, and can actually be used to clear the energy of other stones.
A Selenite bowl works to cleanse and supercharge the energy of your intentions and crystals with the high vibration energy of Selenite. It’s the perfect two-in-one storage option that also fills your spirit and space with positive energy as it activates your crystals!
Energy Amplifiers: Energy Tools to Enhance Your Crystals
In addition to how to store crystals in your home, there are a few small steps you can take that make a big difference in the performance of your crystals and your crystal practice. Here are some must-have energy tools and how/when to use them to strengthen your crystals and support your intentions.
At the beginning of your crystal practice or before you set an intention, light a crystal candle to ignite your intention and your own energy. The flame, or fire energy, activates your practice and acts as a signal to let the universe know you are energetically ready.
Crystal candles are also a powerful addition to your lunar rituals and can be a game-changer for your monthly moon intentions. Learn more about how to use candles with the phases of the moon on our blog!
Incense and Clearing Herbs
Use clearing herbs and incense for positive energy on a consistent basis to clear and cleanse your personal energy field and your stones so they are energetically optimized and vibrating at the highest possible frequency. For the best results, we recommend clearing your stones at least once every 30 days, or any time you set a new intention. Clearing your own energy with incense or herbs is important to do before each new intention-setting or manifestation practice, but it can also be a powerful practice to use whenever your energy feels heavy or dark. If you are not sure which incense to use or when to use it, check out our Guide to Clearing Herbs.
Selenite Charging Plates
You’ve already learned about the power of the Selenite crystal for storing your stones, but did you know you could also use the Selenite crystal in your crystal rituals and other practices? If you are using specific stones to manifest or actualize your goals, write your intention down on a piece of paper and place your paper and your crystals on top of a Selenite charging plate to supercharge your crystals and intentions for the duration of your practice. This ensures that your crystals are working for you, even when you are not actively using them.
Copper Charging Pyramid
Placing your crystals and jewelry underneath a Copper Pyramid strengthens the cleansing process and amplifies their energy. Combining ancient wisdom with modern technology, this copper pyramid is an energy essential for anyone and everyone who has crystals or crystal jewelry. The pyramid shape aims to recycle heavy, stagnant and negative energy into light and flowing positive energy. It is believed to enhance and increase the power of anything placed underneath and inside of them. As one of the most effective energy conductors, copper attracts the many energies of the Earth, pulses the highest frequencies and is one of the most healing metals. Create a nightly routine of removing your jewelry and taking your crystals out of your pockets to place them under your copper pyramid to cleanse, recharge and restore. In the morning, they'll be vibing high and ready for you to use.
Did you know that you could apply these crystal-infused oils to your stones? The crystal-infused oil works to enhance their energy and boost their power. Choose an oil that matches with your goal or intention, and allow the blend of energies to elevate each other so that your crystals are even more powerful. These crystal oils also infuse the crystals with the energy of your intention in a deeper way. For the most powerful effect, rub the oil of your choice onto your crystals, crystal jewelry, and your own skin to link your energies and align your stones and your personal energy with your intention.
