How To Cleanse Moonstone

Moonstone is a very well-known stone of balance. This pearly crystal is also known to have a strong healing energy.

Because of this, Moonstone should be cleansed to keep it in good shape.

Should You Cleanse Moonstone?

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 best.

Moonstone is known to give off strong energy and is especially valued for its ability to help people find balance and get ideas.

Moonstone is thought to help with stability and creativity. So, if you want to get the most out of your Moonstone, you should cleanse it as soon as you get it. This will help you get the most out of the crystal.

Also, your Moonstone crystal's power may start to fade over time. A good cleanse will help bring back the energy that was there before.

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

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

Now that you know why cleansing your Moonstone is important, let's look at some ways to do it.

How To Cleanse Moonstone

You can cleanse your Moonstone in many ways. Here are a few of the most common ways to do it:

  • 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 Moonstone. Just hold the crystal under running water for 15 to 30 seconds and think about the energy of inspiration 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 Moonstone. Then, put in your Moonstone and wait 5 to 15 minutes. When you're done, make sure to rinse the crystal well.

Cleansing With Sage Or Incense

To use sage to cleanse your Moonstone, just hold it in one hand and waft the smoke from sage over it with the other.

Focus your thoughts on cleansing the stone of any bad energy it might be holding as you do this. This will help get rid of energy you don't want.

You could also use incense to cleanse the Moonstone. Start by lighting the end of your incense stick until it starts to smoke. Then, blow the smoke over your crystal for a few moments to get rid of any bad energy. It's important to have good ventilation while you do this, so open a window to let the negative energy flow out and the fresh air flow in.

Cleansing With Sunlight

Sunlight cleansing is very good for most stones, including Moonstone. 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

Moonlight cleansing is another common and powerful method. Leave your Moonstone outside or on a window sill. Let the moon purify your crystal and return its energy to a state of balance.

Cleansing Moonstone Jewelry

When it comes to cleansing Moonstone crystal jewelry, it's best to use gentler techniques.

Cleansing your Moonstone jewelry is simple and fun - here's what we recommend:

How To Cleanse A Moonstone Bracelet

First, we don't recommend cleansing Moonstone bracelets with water because the water can damage the string that holds the bracelet together.

Second, we don't recommend burning sage or incense near your bracelet because the smoke could be too strong and damage the wire as well.

We do, however, recommend a sun or moon bath for cleansing Moonstone bracelets.

How To Cleanse A Moonstone Necklace

Cleansing a Moonstone necklace is very similar to cleansing a Moonstone bracelet.

Keep the necklace from getting wet and away from sage or incense smoke. Choose sun or moonlight cleanses instead to get the job done. You can also put your necklace in a rice bath or a salt bath that doesn't have any water.


Cleansing your Moonstone crystals and jewelry is a fantastic way to keep them open to the energies of balance and inspiration.

Now that you know how to cleanse your Moonstones, you can keep them in good shape so they can continue to work their magic in your life.
