Physical & Energetic Cleansing
If you have the time, start by cleansing your crystal over-night in a bowl of natural sea salt. It's best if it can be a full 24-hours as this will reset the crystal from it's travels to you. After the cleansing be sure to compost the used salt by giving it back to the earth.
Before your practice do the following:
Clean your crystal with warm running water and natural soap, making sure to clean the entire surface.
While rinsing, envision the crystal glowing with love and returning to its purest energetic state, as if still resting, untouched, in the earth.
Imagine golden light filling and cleansing the space where you will have your Yoni Crystal practice.
It is suggested to have a little bowl of water, next to you for when you complete your crystal journey. After your practice you may want to bask in the afterglow and not rush to the sink to clean the crystal. The bowl of water is there to place your crystal in.
For Deeper Crystal Cleansing
DO NOT use boiling water, only Jade can withstand that level of heat. If you have Jade you can boil for 5-10 minutes.
To deep clean all minerals (including Jade) create a crystal bath by mixing a 2-3 Tbsp of Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) in a bowl of water to soak crystal over night. Also can consider using a few drops of Grapefruit Seed Extract (GSE) in place of ACV as both of these are all-natural antibacterials. If you cleans this way be sure to wash all ACV and GSE off of crystal before use.
Periodically charge your crystal in solar energy by placing in direct sunlight for a few hours or a full day.
Note: the travel pouch is safe to machine wash and recommended to be washes once in a while.
