You don’t have to be a Zen master to notice if the energy feels stagnant and stuck in your home. Simply take a moment to notice if you or your environment feels heavy. In the hectic pace of the modern world, it’s not uncommon to come home from a long day at work feeling overwhelmed.

If you or a loved one is fighting an illness, it’s time for a quick space cleansing.

But all it takes is 5 to 10 minutes once or twice a week to truly transform your the energy of your space. A pure and cleansed environment is also vital for enhancing the healing energy of crystals. Before you bring crystals into your home, purify your space first so that it amplifies the energy that’s already there.

Using Sage, Frankincense, and Copal

Burning sage is one of the easiest and quickest ways for getting rid of negative energy. Native Americans have considered Sage a sacred plant for thousands of years. This multi-purpose plant was used for energy cleansing, ritual ceremonies, and healing. Today, medicine people continue to use Sage to help restore vitality and health to sick tribal members. It works by neutralizing your energy field, a subtle yet powerful process that sharpens and enhances intuition.

How to Burn Sage

A sage smudging ritual also gives you the chance to cleanse your crystal collection. While letting the smoke envelop the crystals, take this moment to reinforce and program them for your intention. Remember, the clearer your purpose for each gemstone, the stronger and more effective their healing powers. For instance, ask Rose Quartz to bring unconditional love into your life, Citrine to boost happiness and success, Peacock Ore to enhance pure joy, or any of your favorite gemstones that resonate with your spirit.

Crystals are big-time energy amplifiers, so it’s important to cleanse your crystals and cleanse them often! Healing crystals are constantly transmuting and absorbing negativity, so keep them cleansed and activated by smudging them with sage regularly. If you’re overcoming an illness, it’s a good idea to cleanse them on a daily basis, especially for crystals used for their healing and energizing effects.

How to Sage a House

When you’re finished cleansing your crystals, do a quick sage smudging cleanse of your home to rid the energetic field of bad vibes. Using an abalone shell to collect the ash, light a white sage stick and blow on it until it begins to gently smoke. Start your cleansing ritual by opening the back door and smudging the frame, which protects your home from toxins that can seep in from the outside. To balance out the earthy and woodsy smell of white sage, try burning the sacred Palo Santo wood, which has a sweet and comforting aroma. As you continue to smudge the perimeter of your home, light the stick and keep blowing on it to maintain the smoke.

As you waft the smoke with a feather, watch it gently billow up the walls, and repeat a cleansing mantra that resonates with your heart and intention. As you walk around your environment, take a moment to smudge tight spaces where energy often gets stagnant, including closets, hallways, and bathrooms. Finish your sage smudging session at the front door and put out the embers of the sage stick or let it burn out if you need an extra dose of cleansing. Then, walk through your home and enjoy the subtle yet distinctive difference of a cleansed and balanced space.

Sage is powerful on its own but we’ve found that adding Frankincense into the mix is excellent for chasing away bad frequencies. The earthy, woodsy smell of dried sage isn’t for everyone, which is why Frankincense makes a wonderful alternative. Nicknamed the “transformer,” its powerful detoxifying and purifying energy gives off a sweet, honey-like aroma that helps to shift negative energy. Also known as “liquid gold,” Frankincense is known to provide protection, elevate spiritual awareness, and ease feelings of stress and anxiety.

Copal incense has been considered sacred since ancient times. In fact, it is one of the oldest forms of energy cleansing. Large amounts of Copal resin were discovered in the burial grounds of the Mayan and Aztec ruins, proving its spiritual significance. Derived from trees in the Buresa family, Copal contains natural tree resin that is known to have powerful medicinal properties. Add it to Frankincense or burn it alone to transform your negative thoughts into a positive state of mind.

10 Steps to Cleanse Your Home of Negative Energy (in 10 minutes or less!)

Yes, it’s that simple. Incorporate this cleansing practice into your life once or twice a week and you’ll be amazed at the results. With any cleansing ritual, it’s important to be mindful of the present moment so that you can purify your space with a clear intention.

Cleanse Your Home of Negative Energy

  1. First, open the doors and windows so that negative energy can have a place to escape. Pull up blinds and let in as much light as possible. In fact, it’s ideal to carry out this cleansing ritual during the day, particularly when the sun is shining.
  2. Sweep the entrances to your home and do a light dusting around the house. It might seem obvious, but when your home sparkles, your spirit is sure to follow.
  3. Starting at the front door, light a Sage Stick and gently blow on it until a large amount of smoke billows up. Keep an abalone shell or heat resistant container handy to catch any fallen embers.
  4. Walk clockwise around your home, making sure to smudge all corners, including closets. Use a feather to waft smoke all the way up to the ceilings. Don’t worry about your house getting too smoky because it can easily escape out the open doors and windows, taking the bad energy with it. Don’t forget to sage the bathroom. As you smudge each room, say a special cleansing prayer or intention out loud, which will help amplify its cleansing powers.
  5. Add Fresh Flowers – Flowers are a must-have for any room in the house because it shows that your home is a beautiful and special space, a sacred temple of love and happiness. After cleansing your environment, take a glass bowl, fill it up with water, and add your favorite flowers. Place it at the front door, on an altar, or on your kitchen table.
  6. Sound – A quiet environment is like a haunted house. It can quickly fill up with negative vibes, which is why sound can replace that energy with warm, feel-good vibes. Stagnant energy often accumulates in corners, so we recommend that you go to each corner and clap your hands up and down or gently ring a bell. Another popular tradition is the singing bowl, which creates gentle healing vibrations that can be felt on a physical and spiritual level. Combining sounds with sage smoke is a powerful combo for breaking up stuck energy.
  7. Palo Santo — Now that your space is clear, it’s time to fill it with beautiful positive energy, which is where the sacred Palo Santo comes in. It gets its nickname “the Aromatic” from its slightly sweet and relaxing smell. Used for thousands of years, this ancient healing wood is known to bestow blessings of love and light. Meaning “holy wood” in Spanish, this sacred wood is ethically and sustainably harvested from the Palo Santo trees of South America after it has naturally fallen on the ground. It takes between 4 -10 years for its natural healing powers to become potent. Unlike Sage, which burns very easily, you must continue to blow on the pieces of wood. Light Palo Santo and walk around your home clockwise to bring in the blessings of angels to bless your space with positive energy.
  8. Burn Frankincense and Copal – Whether we like it or not, we live in a chaotic and polluted world, which is why adding Frankincense and Copal to Sage is a triple threat to bad energy. Place a charcoal disk in an fireproof container or incense burner. Using matches or a lighter, light the charcoal until you see it covered in flickering embers. Then, place a few pieces of Frankincense resin and Copal incense cones on top of the charcoal until it starts to smoke.
  9. Salt Corners of Each Room – Sea salt works like a vacuum by sucking up bad energy and expelling it with a powerful force. Sprinkle salt into the four corners of each room and let it sit for 48 hours. To boost the cleansing effects even more, grind up saffron and mix it into the salt. After 48 hours, sweep or vacuum the salt and flush it down the toilet.
  10. Use Candles to Remove Negative Energy – White candles have been used for centuries to remove toxic vibes from a space. Our Cleansing Candle contains the therapeutic oils of rosemary, plus green and yellow wax, which makes its cleansing effects even more powerful. Whenever you feel stuck or overwhelmed by an abundance of negative energy, let its light, clean scent and gentle ambience give you a renewed sense of inspiration and creativity.
  11. Grid with Protection Crystals – Black tourmaline absorbs negative energy from both people and things. The best way to use black tourmaline is to place a piece in each corner of a room. Doing so builds a protective shield of to prevent negative energy from entering your space. It also absorbs electromagnetic energy, so keeping it near your Internet router, television, computer, and other devices protects you from their harmful energy. Black tourmaline eases anxiety and depression, so holding it in your hands can pull the negative energy from your own body out. If there is a particular part of your home or space that feels heavy despite trying these methods of cleansing, placing a black tourmaline log in that area will absorb the negative energies into its black void. Cleanse these protection crystals once a week to ensure they stay powerful by placing them in a bowl of filtered water and putting them in the sun for at least 4 hours. You can also immerse them in the smoke of burning sage.

How to Get Rid of Bad Spirits in Your House

Some rooms in the house need more cleansing than others, such as an office filled with electronics or a room where someone is healing from an illness. For these instances, we recommend the Mason jar technique, especially in a room where there have been arguments. This cleansing method is also an excellent alternative for those who don’t like smoky sage in the house.

  1. Fill a Mason jar half full with spring water and add a few pinches of sea salt, which is excellent for absorbing toxins.
  2. Add fresh sage and a piece of Black Tourmaline, which is a powerhouse for absorbing and neutralizing negativity.
  3. Place this jar in four corners of the room, which creates a grid that seals off and protects the energy of the space.
  4. For this method, it is essential that you empty the water within 24 hours, especially if someone is sick. Replace it with a fresh mixture of water and salt. Then, cleanse the Tourmaline stone with water or sage smoke and place back in the jar for another round of cleansing and purifying.

How to Cleanse Your House with Healing Crystals

Now that your space is thoroughly cleansed, it’s time for the fun part…healing crystals!

When it comes to spiritual cleansing, healing crystals are excellent for the home and body. Because of their crystalline structure, they have a strong and steady energy that flows with the gentle, healing vibrations of earth. But the hectic pace of modern life can easily throw us off balance. When you incorporate the healing energy of crystals into your space, it’s a reminder to slow down and appreciate the little things in life.

Amethyst – Ranging in color from dark purple to pale lilac, Amethyst brings an abundance of warm and buttery vibes into your home, which makes it an excellent addition to any room. It works as a natural filtration system that absorbs negativity and transforms it into vibrations of pure love and harmony.

Selenite – The crystal version of Sage, Selenite healing wands help to clear and purify your space, especially when you place it on windowsills. It works by blocking bad vibes that can seep into your house through the doors and windows. A must-have for every spiritual warrior, Selenite fills your environment with radiance and purity.

Healing crystals are always absorbing and transmuting negative energy, so it’s vital that you cleanse your crystals on a weekly basis. Smudge the stones with sage smoke and say your intention for each crystal out loud. This practice will help to program your stones so that they’re amplifying positive vibes and working at their highest potential. Another popular cleansing method involves putting them under the sunlight or moonlight for 12-24 hours, which works by recharging their energy with the dazzling light that comes from our miraculous universe.

How to Get Rid of Negative Energy in Your Body

When it comes to ridding the body of toxic energy, healthy eating is a good place to start but sometimes it takes more than organic salads and vitamins to tackle your inner demons. If you’re feeling particularly heavy in the energy department, try these cleansing techniques and free yourself of bad thoughts that are holding you back from your true potential.

  1. Forest Bathing – If you’ve got a case of the blues, it’s time to get back to nature with forest bathing. Instead of walking the path in order to get from Point A to Point B, take your time to breathe in the incredible healing energy of the forest and its abundance of oxygen permeating the air. Bring along your favorite crystals – we recommend Tree Agate and Aventurine – and wander along the trail at your own pace, taking the time to notice the incredible miracle of life that surrounds you.
  2. Conscious Breathing – If you feel stressed or anxious, deep breathing is a simple and easy way to restore your mind-body-spirit to a place of peace and tranquility. Inhale positivity and exhale negativity. It’s that easy!
  3. Music – When it hits you, you feel no pain. That’s the magic of music. Even after cleansing rituals, bad thoughts can still persist, so put them to rest with a collection of your favorite songs. Playing an instrument is also an excellent way to stay in the present moment because when you’re concentrating on notes and chords, you don’t have time for any negative thoughts to get in the way.
  4. Dance in Your Living Room – Even if you have two left feet, play your favorite dance jams, turn up the volume, and dance like no one is watching. You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to shake off a case of the blues. Plus, it’s cheaper than therapy and a lot more fun!
  5. Purifying Bath – Water is incredibly healing on its own, so when you add the powerful cleansing and rejuvenating powers of Himalayan sea salt, it makes your bath ever more restorative. Add 2-4 pieces of Himalayan salt rocks to your bath, a few drops of your favorite essential oils, and healing crystals like Amethyst, Aventurine, and Rose Quartz.
  6. Stress Reducing Facial Grid – We might not realize it, but many of us hold tension in our faces. Release everyday stress and calm the mind with Fluorite, Amethyst, and Celestite, a crystal powerhouse of peaceful energies that work to relax the mind-body-spirit. Place the crystals on places where you feel tension, such as your forehead, and feel your face being renewed and rejuvenated. Learn more about how to use a stress reducing facial grid.
  7. Sea Salt Cleanse – Because of its abilities to heal and detoxify, Himalayan sea salt has been used as a body cleanser for thousands of years. It also makes an excellent body scrub because of its exfoliating texture, especially medium-course grains. When gently rubbed on the skin, the healing properties of sea salt help to cleanse and moisturize your pores, leaving you with a gorgeous goddess glow.

Now that you know how to cleanse your house with sage, healing crystals, and other sacred cleansing tools, it’s time for all the dream crushers, energy vampires, and your own inner critic to get the heck out of your life because your spiritual transformation is just getting started.

          Hi Krystal! It sounds like you need Selenite! We would recommend placing lots of Selenite in the space in which this is happening. Your daughter should also be wearing a Selenite necklace at all times. You’ll also need to really sage and cleanse the space! When you sage, you want to command the spirit to leave. Email us at, if you have more specific questions!

After cleansing I usually spray Lady Nada by Aura Soma or just rose or floral incense or spray is also good. Aura Soma is a little pricey so rose incense for $1 is also good. It’s important that after clearing the energy that the void is filled with something postive.

    When I definitely feel bad energy is being sent our way, I Light a Black candle that is set un a black container grilled with water.
    I visualize the bad vibes collecting in the flame and I ask tespectfully for the fire to transmute them. ( It is amazing to observe the flame and sonetimes it gives astounding clues).
    I then let the candle burn until the water in container drowns it, and throw the whole thing outside into garbage can.

    • Reply January 6, 2016


      Hi Carmen!
      You can usually tell if theres negative energy in your home if something seems off, your family gets sick or there’s been verbal altercations. Anytime other people enter your home, they bring with them their own energy, which can be negative (even if they don’t realize). We cleanse our spaces after we have guests to our home to keep the energy clear and fresh. We also recommend doing this when you move to a new apartment or home because you don’t want to take in the energy of the past owners. Hope this helps you!

    Hi, ok so according to a story passed down through the family my great grandfather’s first wife supposedly put a curse on each first born daughter to never find true love and have struggles. I don’t know if the curse is true or not but my mother was the first born to my grandmother and I am the first born. Well my mother and I have never had a successful relationship. She married a few times, had many heart breaks. I married once with a lot of heart breaks. So if the curse is true how do I break it or what can I do to remove said curse?

    I use sage often, black candle banishment/collection of negative energy in my homes, and have carried a small piece of black tourmaline.
    However, I am now residing in a non-smoking apartment building.
    I know people light candles, and I do too on a limited basis.

    My question is the resolve on the saging (which I know I can do carefully) but I am not able to have it sit outside my door to burn out.

    The apartment has inside hallway doors like a nice hotel, nor do I have a balcony to bring the sage out that direction.
    The closest I might be able to come is sitting on my inside window sill with an open window.
    Will that be “enough” to carry it and keep it out?
    Any suggestions?

      Selenite and a shungite sphere (we will be in stock next week) are great to keep in the bedroom to rid a space of nightmares. You may also want to practice third eye chakra healing, as nightmares are most commonly associated with that chakra. Usually dreams are insight into our subconscious fears, blockages and beliefs, so examining them can help alleviate the root cause. We hope this helps!

    For: Rhonda hoskins- worried mom ! For your sons problem, consult a priest to do prayers and cleansing with holy water in your house.all rooms must be cleansed with holy water.a lot of self prayer will help. Ask the priest if you can regularly collect bottles of holy water to splash in your yard, landings and rooms of the houses when the appetition is seen, it must be splashed with holy water. Also, find out what bad or demonic deeds, knowing or unknowing he has done, such as playing with oujoua boards, breaking rosaries, etc. It could worsen, it may start talking to him, and trying to make him do bad or demonic things to properly get a hold of him, or bring in a demonic network, in which case many more spirits will be seen or heard, or it could start hurting him. I do not mean to scare you, but a lot of people are ignorant about these things, so consult a priest as soon as possible.

      (With this second one, having water with herbs in it will absorb negative energies into it. So while it looks nice, it also has an energetic purpose! And playing music is a great way to keep the energy positive and calm, specifically tibetan mantras 🙂 )

      Hope this helps!

    I live on a large property approaching an acre. Thus, it is not only the house but the yard that needs clearing as it is surrounded by negative energy that has accrued over many, many decades. What suggestions do you have clearing the boundaries please?

    • Reply June 9, 2016


      You could bury black tourmaline around the perimeter of the property to create a protective shield–hopefully that can help too!

    I love this article! I’m new to negative energy cleansing and I’m learning a lot. I diffuse essential oils to bring positive energy into my home. I’m going to salt around my home too. My concern is my job. I work in a school that is undergoing some major changes and it had brought an abundance of negative energy. I have a personal diffuser at my desk, but I’m not always sitting. And I think the negativity is well beyond the capabilities of my little diffuser. 🙂 I’m a librarian and there is a constant flow of traffic (and energies) walking though. What can I do nonchalantly to bring in positive energy?

      When you have a job where you are often coming into contact with lots of people, wearing crystals can really help you maintain a clear and clean energy field–one that is not muddied by other energy that gets attached. We would recommend wearing Black Tourmaline or Selenite (we have many options of both on our website). You can even wear it underneath your clothes, tucked into your shirt etc, so that you can “nonchalantly” bring in positive energy and repel the negative!

    I smudge my house with sage whenever I have the house empty of others – which isn’t too often.

    In the process of a divorce with a verbally/emotionally abusive spouse who currently still resides here.

    How can I protect my house, self, children & dogs daily from all of the negativity he brings with him? At this rate I’ll be smudging every day and night which obviously isn’t possible.

    I also have my St. Jude, St. Anthony, and Archangel Michael candles lit as often as possible as well.

    I’m constantly being told that there is so much negativity around me and blocking me and trying to stop me from moving forward and being happy.

    Any thoughts?

      Hi Sasha! We are so sorry to hear that you’re going through this. If you’re looking for a few crystals to help you, we would suggest placing black tourmaline in the 4 corners of every room (or the 4 corners of your property) and also placing selenite on your windowsills. Sending you lots of positive energy!

  • Reply November 15, 2016



    I have tried many methods for house cleansing. Some I would like to share.

    -Burning Palo Santo sticks. Stronger than Sage.
    -Bowl of vinegar black or white with salt in every room. Changed & Repeated every day.
    -Colour visualization such as Violet or white light filling all rooms.
    -Playing Singing bowls.
    -Fill your house with positive thoughts & your Love.

    If you are concerned about spirits bothering you. Try not to feed them your fear. Sleep with a water bottle on your bed or around your bed. White Selenite
    Is excellent for repelling them.

    Great article thanks. 🙂

    I just moved into my sister’s place as she is bed ridden with MS and is now living with our parents. I too suffer with MS but am still able bodied but I feel like I’ve just taken over her life (she offered her place to my husband and I). Could it be her negative energy dragging me down emotionally and physically? I feel like a completely different person living here. Before moving here I was on a stringent diet, active and just overall happier. Since moved in I’ve gained all that lost weight back, a lot less active and massive depression. I can’t even sleep upstairs as my sister’s scent is still around. Please advise as it’s putting a strain on my husband and I relationship. Thank you for any advice.

    • Reply December 30, 2016


      Hi Jennifer, we are so sorry to hear about your current feelings/predicament. We feel there are a number of different things going on. It could definitely mean you need to consistently clear the space. That will make the energy of the space feel lighter and not as heavy. However, the underlying issue might be that you (and your husband) do not feel at home or that the space is your own. Try making the space your own together, put your own touches and create a space that you feel you can thrive and feel like yourself. Try to release feelings of guilt with the end of the year, and start anew in 2017.

    I would like to improve the relationship with my daughter who never really gives her family much time. She is very much loved but she is just very selfish at times and does not entertain our feelings much. We have given her so much and as a result she has a good job and great prospects. She comes home infrequently and doesn’t always call. We would just love to see her more and reconnect our family. Do you know how I can do this using crystals.

    • Reply February 27, 2017


      Hi Shirley! Is your daughter into meditation or crystals at all? It can be really powerful, if she’s willing, to do a short meditation together, and then have an open dialogue with each other about how you’re feeling! Try using crystals like rose quartz and blue lace agate, to open the heart and throat chakras so that everyone feels heard and not attacked.

  • Reply February 24, 2017


    I am very thankful for this information, I I have two questions. My bundle of sage has frankincense in it is that OK to burn them both at the same time? My second question is does it matter the size of black tourmaline you put in the corners of each room? Or can you do one room at a time? I was thinking of putting a selenite tower in the middle of my home to help keep negative energy at bay. My home is about 1500 ft.² do you think that would be sufficient?

    • Reply February 27, 2017


      Hi Liz! Thanks for reaching out to us. Yes, a sage bundle with Frankincense would be AMAZING! We would recommend placing a good sized piece of black tourmaline in each corner, like one that fits comfortably in the palm of your hand. Remember that this will help to absorb negative energy in your space, so you don’t want to go with something very small. And yes, a Selenite tower would be a lovely addition as well! Seems like you’ve got it handled 🙂

    You say that you clear your place after having guests, do you do a full on clearing? My clearing was way too labor intensive to do every time some one enters my home. Hahaha. I am hoping you do a mini version and it only takes 5 minutes? 🙂

      We recommend that you at least do a quick saging! The full on clearing is more for when you have a party in your home, and there are many, many people coming in and out!

    Hello my name is Valerie and I am just doing some research on crystals because I was given a Amethyst. I learned a lot so far on your site. But my concern is my mother she is 80 yrs old. In the early stages of dementia. My mother has a skin picking disorder that she will not try to get help. She picks so bad that this 1 area on her head she picked so deep that she had to get a couple stitches. Lots of blood on her clothing. Anytime I say something she gets very angry at me. It really is affecting me too. Is there a certain stone or crystal or cleaning I must do? I am beginning to wish I never moved to Redding Ca to be close to her. She does nothing at all except watch tv and spends every waking hour picking. I can not be in the same room with her for any length of time. Please Help? Thank You

    • Reply May 3, 2017


      Hi Valerie, we are very sorry to hear about your mother’s condition and are sending you lots of love, healing and light energy. In terms of a crystal that can perhaps help her, you could try to put selenite in her room, perhaps under the bed and on windowsills. Selenite brings soothing energies to raise the vibration of the space. It also facilities healing. Wishing you (and her) all the best!

      We also just want to be clear that we are not doctors and cannot provide medical advice. None of the information we share should be used as a replacement for seeking medical attention.

      Try implementing a practice of journaling and connecting with crystals such as Black tourmaline, or another crystal to facilitate the release of negative thoughts. Try holding the crystal in your non-writing hand, and writing down any negative thoughts or fears that come to mind. Then either shred or carefully burn the paper to release those thoughts. Doing this regularly can really help!

      Have you tried moving things around in your space + placing some of the items outside – doing a FULL FULL clean out, throwing away any clutter. Sometimes it’s physical things that store energy or memories, and sometimes you need to do a full shift + them fully smoke out your space. Open all the windows, let the light in. Hope this helps!

    I just experienced a bad breakup with a boyfriend who spent a lot of time in my home, with and without me–he had a key. He admitted that he continually lied to me and stayed with me months after he lost interest in me to take advantage of my clean and quiet home. I feel very betrayed and feel the need to really clear house and invite in more positive, nurturing energy. Besides a sage clearing, is there anything you recommend to help rid my home of his morally bankrupt influence?

I fall asleep around midnight, but by 4am I’m up and cant go back to sleep, I wake up with marks and bruises I did not go to sleep with. My husband and I separated, but before he left he was burning frankincense and myrrh, but I think that made things worse. I’m ready to sell the house and move! Should I give up? I’m exhausted.
