Labradorite is a beautiful stone that looks grayish blue. Labradorescence is an iridescent optical effect that can happen when light enters the stone and is reflected from a subsurface inside the stone.
To get the most out of the properties of your Labradorite, you need to know how and when to cleanse it.
Should You Cleanse Labradorite?
Some people think that cleansing helps get rid of any bad energy that the crystal may have picked up, while others cleanse the stone before they use it to heal.
Labradorite is one of the most powerful energy transmitters, especially when it comes to gaining insight and realizing things.
People think that wearing Labradorite can help them become more aware of themselves. If you don't cleanse your Labradorite well, it won't work as well as it could. You'll be wasting its potential and not using its powerful energies.
Second, as time goes on, your Labradorite won't be able to draw in as much good energy.
Some also believe that without cleansing, it can lead to negative effects such as: Losing your Labradorite stone, and even your Labradorite breaking or shattering.
Lastly, cleansing your Labradorite will help cleanse your own energy, especially if you keep the stone nearby or wear it as jewelry.
It's clear that you should cleanse your Labradorite. Now, let's talk about how to get it done.
How To Cleanse Labradorite
There are many ways to cleanse Labradorite. Below, we'll talk about the most common ones.
- in water
- in salt
- with sage or incense
- in sunlight
- in moonlight
Cleansing With Water
Running water is one of the most common ways to cleanse Labradorite.
Just put your Labradorite crystal in a bowl of water. Just hold your crystal under running water for a few minutes and imagine the energy of intuition coming back into the crystal.
Cleansing With Salt
In a bowl, mix together the same amount of salt and warm water. Then put the Labradorite in the bowl and let it soak for however long you want. Most of the time, 5 to 15 minutes is plenty of time.
After that, take your Labradorite out and wash it with clean water.
Cleansing With Sage Or Incense
Sage and incense are great ways to cleanse your Labradorite because they are known to have properties that clean and purify.
To cleanse your Labradorite with sage, just burn some sage and blow the smoke over it. 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. Like you would with sage, waft the smoke over the Labradorite 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
Most stones are often cleansed by putting them in the sun. To use sunlight to cleanse Labradorite, just put your stone in direct sunlight for a few hours. Make sure you don't leave it out for too long, or your beautiful stone may start to fade.
Cleansing With Moonlight
Moonlight works just as well to cleanse your crystal. To do so, just put your Labradorite outside or on a window sill at night or early in the morning, when the moon is most visible. The moonlight will wash away the stone's impurities and bring back its power to help people realize their dreams.
Cleansing Labradorite Jewelry
Even though you can use the same methods to cleanse Labradorite jewelry and raw crystals, it's better to use more gentle methods when cleansing crystal jewelry.
Here are the best ways to cleanse bracelets and necklaces made of Labradorite.
How To Cleanse A Labradorite 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 Labradorite bracelet gets wet, the wire can rust and break.
We suggest that you gently cleanse your Labradorite 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 Labradorite Necklace
For cleansing a Labradorite 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 Labradorite crystals and jewelry is a fantastic way to keep them receptive to energies of realization and intuition.
Now that you know how to cleanse your Labradorite, you can keep them in top shape so they can continue to work their magic in your life!
