Cleansing With Sage Or Incense

Because of their cleansing and purifying characteristics, sage and incense are excellent ways to cleanse your Red Tiger's Eye.

Simply burn some sage and waft the smoke over your Red Tiger's Eye to cleanse it. You can also leave your crystal in the smoke for a few minutes longer to get a good powerful cleansing.

To cleanse with incense, light the tip of the incense stick and allow the fire to burn for a few seconds, leaving only smoke but no flame. Waft the smoke over your Red Tiger's Eye as you would sage to receive a deep cleanse. When performing this type of cleaning, keep your windows open to allow harmful energies to escape.

Cleansing With Sunlight

Most stones, including Red Tiger's Eye, benefit greatly from sunshine cleansing. Place your stone in direct sunshine for a few hours to cleanse it. However, do not leave it out for too long as it can fade your stone.

Cleansing With Moonlight

Moonlight is a common and effective approach to cleanse crystals. Leave your Red Tiger's Eye outside overnight or on a windowsill to receive the moon's purifying powers. Allow the moon to wash away any impurities and restore energy to your crystal.

Cleansing Red Tiger's Eye Jewelry

The methods previously discussed are useful for cleansing raw stones, but cleansing your Red Tiger's Eye jewelry requires a more delicate touch.

How To Cleanse A Red Tiger's Eye Bracelet

For bracelets, we don't recommend burning sage or incense near your bracelet as the smoke might be too intense and harm the wire.

Also, if your Red Tiger's Eye bracelet gets wet, the wire can corrode and deteriorate.

We recommend gently cleansing your Red Tiger's Eye bracelets with either sunlight or moonlight. Simply leave your bracelet in the sunlight or moonlight for a few hours.

How To Cleanse A Red Tiger's Eye Necklace

We recommend cleansing a Red Tiger's Eye necklace in the same way we cleanse bracelets. Light from the sun, moonlight, and even a salt bath (without water) are all excellent choices.

Just be sure to avoid getting the necklace wet, as this can damage the wire. If you must use water, we recommend holding it under running water for only 15-30 seconds.


Now that you know how and why to cleanse your Red Tiger's Eye, it's time to get started. Pick your favorite method and get cleansing.

Your Red Tiger's Eye will eventually draw more motivation and confidence into your life than ever before!
