How To Cleanse Garnet

How To Cleanse Garnet

Garnet is a beautiful reddish-brown stone. Ancient Bohemian royalty lined the interior of their castles with Garnets for their beauty and metaphysical properties. It is known for its vitality properties.

It's important to cleanse your Garnet to unleash its full potential.

Should You Cleanse Garnet?

By cleansing your crystals on a regular basis, you can get rid of any negative energy or blockages that might stop the stone from working at its full potential.

Garnet is known to give off strong energy and is valued for its energy and vitality properties.

Garnet is thought to represent the sun's energy and give the chakras of the body a boost. So the first reason you should cleanse your Garnet is that if you haven't done so in a while, you won't be able to use it to its full potential.

Second, over time, you will be less able to pull energy from your Garnet. Some also believe that without cleansing, it can lead to negative effects such as: Losing your Garnet stone, and even your Garnet breaking or shattering.

Lastly, when your Garnet is cleansed, it can help you feel more grounded and connected to the earth, which is good if you feel scattered or cut off.

Now that you know why cleansing Garnet is important, let's look at the different ways to do it.

How To Cleanse Garnet

There are many ways to cleanse your Garnet. Here are a few of the most common ways:

  • in water
  • in salt
  • with sage or incense
  • in sunlight
  • in moonlight

Cleansing With Water

One of the most common ways to cleanse Garnet crystals is by running water.

Just put your Garnet crystal in a bowl of water. For a few minutes, hold the crystal under running water. Imagine that energy is flowing freely around you while the crystal is in the water.

Cleansing With Salt

Salt is another thing you can use to cleanse your Garnet crystal. Mix salt and warm water until the salt is almost completely dissolved. Immerse your crystal for a few minutes in the salt water, and then wipe it dry. This will help the stone release its energy.

Cleansing With Sage Or Incense

Sage and incense are great ways to cleanse your Garnet, because they are known for their cleansing and purifying properties.

Sage can be used to cleanse by burning some and wafting the smoke over your Garnet. You can also hold your crystal in the smoke for a few more minutes to get a really good clean.

To use incense to cleanse, light the end of the stick and let it burn for a few seconds, until you can see smoke but no flame. Like with sage, waft the smoke over your Garnet to get a deep cleanse. Make sure your windows are open when you do this kind of cleanse so that the bad energy can flow out.

Cleansing With Sunlight

The sun is a great way to cleanse most stones, including Garnet. To cleanse your stone, put it in direct sunlight for a few hours. Be careful not to leave it out for too long, though, or it could fade your stone.

Cleansing With Moonlight

When it comes to cleansing crystals, moonlight is just as effective as sunlight. To use moonlight to cleanse your Garnet, just put it outside or on a window sill at night or early in the morning, when the Moon is brightest. The moonlight will cleanse the stone of its unwanted energy and bring back its vital energy.

Cleansing Garnet Jewelry

When cleansing Garnet crystal jewelry, it's best to do so in a gentler way.

Cleansing your Garnet jewelry is easy and fun. Here's what we recommend:

How To Cleanse An Garnet Bracelet

If you have a bracelet, you shouldn't burn sage or incense near it because the smoke could be too strong and damage the wire.

Also, if your Garnet bracelet gets wet, the wire can rust and break.

We suggest using either the sun or the moonlight to gently cleanse your Garnet bracelets. You can just put your bracelet in the sun or moonlight for a few hours.

How To Cleanse An Garnet Necklace

We recommend using the same methods for cleansing a Garnet necklace as we do for bracelets. You can use the sun, the moon, or even a salt bath without water.

Just make sure not to get the wire in the necklace wet, because that could damage it. If you have to use water, you should only hold it under running water for 15 to 30 seconds.


Cleansing your Garnet jewelry and crystals is a great way to keep them open to life and energy energies.

Now that you know how to cleanse your Garnet, you can keep it in good shape so it can keep doing its magic for you.
