How To Cleanse Citrine
There are many ways to cleanse your Citrine. Here are some of the most popular methods:
- in water
- in salt
- with sage or incense
- in sunlight
- in moonlight
Cleansing With Water
Running water is one of the most popular methods of cleansing Citrine crystals.
All you need is a bowl of water and your Citrine crystal. Hold the crystal under running water for a few minutes. While the crystal is submerged in water, visualize the feelings of luck flowing freely around you.
Cleansing With Salt
To cleanse your Citrine with salt, simply add some salt to a bowl of warm water and stir until the salt has dissolved. Then add your Citrine and let it sit for 5 to 15 minutes. Make sure to rinse off the crystal thoroughly when you're done.
Cleansing With Sage Or Incense
Sage and incense are great ways to cleanse your Citrine, as they're known for their cleansing and purifying properties.
To cleanse with sage, simply burn some sage and waft the smoke over your Citrine. You can also hold your crystal in the smoke for a few extra minutes to get a nice strong cleanse.
To cleanse with incense, light the tip of the incense stick and let the fire burn for a few seconds until you're left with smoke but no flame. Like with sage, waft the smoke over your Citrine to get a deep cleanse. When performing this type of cleanse, make sure your windows are open to allow the negative energies to flow out.
Cleansing With Sunlight
Cleansing with sunlight is a very popular option for most stones. To cleanse Citrine with sunlight, simply place your stone in direct sunlight for a few hours. Make sure you don't leave it out for too long as it may cause some fading to your beautiful stone.
Cleansing With Moonlight
Moonlight cleansing is another common and potent method. Leave your Citrine outdoors or near a windowsill overnight. Allow the moon to purify your crystal and bring back its energy of abundance.
Cleansing Citrine Jewelry
The methods previously discussed are useful for cleansing raw stones, but cleansing your Citrine jewelry requires a more delicate touch.
How To Cleanse A Citrine Bracelet
For bracelets, we don't recommend burning sage or incense near your bracelet as the smoke might be too intense and harm the wire.
Also, if your Citrine bracelet gets wet, the wire can corrode and deteriorate.
We suggest utilizing either sunshine or moonlight to gently cleanse your Citrine bracelets. You can simply leave your bracelet in the light of the sun or the moon for a few hours.
How To Cleanse A Citrine Necklace
For cleansing a Citrine necklace, use the same directions as cleansing a bracelet. Go with a sun or moon soak, but even salt or rice baths can work.
Make sure to stay away from submerging your necklace in water or burning sage smoke too close to the necklace wiring.
Cleansing your Citrine crystals and jewelry is a fantastic way to keep them receptive to energies of Abundance and luck.
Now that you know how to cleanse your Citrine, you can keep them in top shape so they can continue to work their magic in your life!
