How To Cleanse Howlite

Howlite is known as a calming stone. People also say that this white crystal gives off a strong healing energy.

To get the most out of the properties of your Howlite, you need to know how and when to cleanse it.

Should You Cleanse Howlite?

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.

Howlite is known to have a strong energy field and is especially valued for its ability to calm and bring peace.

Howlite is thought to calm the mind and get rid of thoughts that distract you. So, the first reason you should cleanse your Howlite is that if you haven't done so in a while, you won't be able to use it to its full potential.

Second, as time goes on, your Howlite won't be as open to attracting positive energy.

Some also believe that without cleansing, it can lead to negative effects such as: Losing your Howlite stone, and even your Howlite breaking or shattering.

Lastly, cleansing your Howlite will also clean your own energy, especially if you keep the stone nearby or wear it as jewelry.

It's clear that you should cleanse your Howlite. Now, let's talk about how to do it.

How To Cleanse Howlite

There are many ways to cleanse your Howlite. Here are some of the most popular methods:

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

Cleansing With Water

Water is one of the most simple ways to cleanse your Howlite. Just hold the crystal under running water for 15 to 30 seconds and think about the energies of peace flowing back into the stone.

Cleansing With Sage Or Incense

Sage, which is known for its ability to cleanse and purify, is a great choice for cleansing your Howlite.

To cleanse the crystal, just burn some sage and blow the smoke over it. You could even leave the crystal in the smoke for a few more minutes if you want to cleanse it better.

Another great idea is to use incense to cleanse your Howlite. Start by lighting the end of an incense stick on fire and waiting until only smoke is left. Then you should hold your crystal in the smoke for a few minutes to cleanse it well. Make sure to open the windows before you use incense to let the bad energy leave the room.

Cleansing With Sunlight

The sun is a great way to cleanse most stones, including Howlite. To cleanse your stone, put it in the sun for a few hours. Don't leave it out for too long, though, or it could fade your stone.

Cleansing With Moonlight

If you want to clean crystals, moonlight works just as well. To cleanse your Howlite with moonlight, simply place it outside or on a windowsill during the night or early morning hours when the Moon is most visible. The moonlight will clean the stone of its dirt and bring back its calming energy.

Cleansing Howlite Jewelry

The methods we've talked about so far are good for cleansing raw stones, but cleaning Howlite jewelry needs a lighter touch.

How To Cleanse A Howlite 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 Howlite bracelet gets wet, the wire can corrode and deteriorate.

We suggest that you gently cleanse your Howlite bracelets with either the sun or the moonlight. You can just put your bracelet in the sun or moonlight for a few hours.

We suggest that you cleanse a Howlite necklace the same way you cleanse a bracelet. You could use either the sun or the moon.

Cleansing your Howlite jewelry and crystals is a great way to keep them open to calming and peaceful energies.

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