Jade is a beautiful green crystal that gives off a feeling of peace. It has been a favorite of people who like crystals for a long time.
Because of this, Jade needs to be cleansed to stay in good shape.
Should You Cleanse Jade?
Cleansing crystals is an important step on the path to healing with crystals. It helps get rid of any bad or unwanted energies in the crystals and gives you a clean slate to work with.
Jade is known to give off strong energy and is valued for its ability to bring peace and happiness.
People think that jade brings peace and helps them think positively. So, if you want to get the most use out of your Jade, you should cleanse it as soon as you get it. This will help you get the most out of the crystal.
Second, over time, you will be less able to pull energy from your Jade.
Some also believe that without cleansing, it can lead to negative effects such as: Losing your Green Jade stone, and even your Green Jade breaking or shattering.
Lastly, when your Jade is cleansed, it can help you feel more grounded and connected to the earth, which is good if you're feeling scattered or cut off.
Now that you know why it's important to cleanse your Jade, let's look at some ways to do it.
How To Cleanse Jade
There are several ways to cleanse your Jade, and we'll discuss the most popular methods below:
- in water
- in salt
- with sage or incense
- in sunlight
- in moonlight
Cleansing With Water
Water is one of the easiest things you can use to cleanse your Jade. Just hold the crystal under running water for 15 to 30 seconds and think about the positive energies flowing back into the stone.
Cleansing With Salt
Add some salt to a bowl of warm water and stir until the salt is dissolved. This will cleanse your Jade. Then, add your Jade 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 Jade because they are known to have properties that cleanse and purify.
Sage can be used to cleanse by burning some and wafting the smoke over your Jade. You can also hold your crystal in the smoke for a few more minutes to get a really good cleanse.
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. Just like you would with sage, waft the smoke over your Jade to cleanse it deeply. Make sure your windows are open when you do this kind of cleanse so that the bad energy can flow out.
Cleansing With Sunlight
Sunlight cleansing is very good for most stones, including Jade. 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
One of the most popular and effective ways to cleanse crystals is with moonlight. Leave your jade outside or near a window overnight so it can soak up the moon's cleansing energy. Let the moon wash away any bad energies and give your crystal a sense of peace.
Cleansing Jade Jewelry
Even though you can use the same methods to cleanse Jade jewelry and raw crystals, it's best to use gentler methods when cleansing crystal jewelry.
Here are the best ways to cleanse bracelets and necklaces made of Jade.
How To Cleanse A Jade 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 Jade bracelet gets wet, the wire can rust and break.
We suggest that you gently cleanse your Jade bracelets with either the sun or the moonlight. You can just put your bracelet in the sun or moonlight for a few hours.
How To Cleanse A Jade Necklace
We suggest that you cleanse a Jade necklace the same way you cleanse a Jade bracelet. 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.
Your Jade crystals and jewelry will remain open to energies of peace and happiness if you cleanse them.
Now that you know how to cleanse Jade, you can maintain it in pristine condition so it may continue to perform its magic in your life.
