Can you charge crystals? Charging crystals may sound absurd at first. "It's just a piece of rock." Most people shrug off the idea of charging stones or crystals. However, that's a mistake.

Your crystal may have been in several hands before ending up in yours. Along the way, crystals tend to capture negative energies. So, the first thing you should do after bringing your crystal home is clean and charge it.

Apart from that, your crystal goes places with you, and it interacts with different energies in different environments. It may have picked something you don't want to be wormed back into your home or life. Furthermore, crystals tend to wear out or become saturated with negative vibes. As a result, they no longer act as a conduit of positive energy. Thus, charging your crystals from time to time is important.

How to Charge Your Crystals?

There are different ways to charge crystals. The method and frequency of charging a crystal are determined by its type, the environment it is being used in and by whom it is being used. If you have been holding on to a crystal for a long time, and it's serving you as intended, keep those positive vibes and healing benefits alive through periodic crystal charging.

Circling back to the question - how do you charge your crystals? Well, there are several ways to do that:

#1 Immerse in Brown Rice

The process is similar to bringing a water-damaged mobile phone back to life. Put your crystal inside a jar full of brown rice and leave it undisturbed for the next 24 hours. Take out your crystal and dispose of the rice someplace far from home.

#2 Place under running water

Just like washing fruit before eating it, place your crystal under the tap and let the running water wash off all the negative energies. The recommended duration is 2 to 3 minutes. 

# 3 Immerse in saltwater

This method of recharging crystals is recommended for hard stones only, such as Amethyst and quartz. If you have access to ocean water, collect it in a bowl and immerse your crystal in it for 30-40 hours. Table salt and tap water will suffice if you live far away from the beach.

Note: Do not use this method to charge porous or soft crystals, such as halite, Angelite or malachite.

#4 Smudge with Sage Plant

Sage belongs to the mint family and is used in culinary recipes to enhance flavor and aroma. Sage is believed to treat various physical illnesses. However, crystal proponents have found this herb immensely useful in cleansing and recharging crystals. How to charge a crystal? It's simple. Use crushed Sage leaves to smudge your crystal, and then place it under running water. Wipe it down with silk or velvet cloth to remove residual water and smudge.


Other recharging methods include burying your crystal in the ground or letting it sit in the moonlight overnight. But if you are wondering how to charge crystals without the moon, follow the methods mentioned above.
