How To Cleanse Rhodonite

Rhodonite is a stunning pink crystal that emits a love energy. It has been a long time favorite among crystal enthusiasts.

It's important to cleanse your Rhodonite to unleash its full potential.

Should You Cleanse Rhodonite?

Cleansing your crystals regularly can help remove any negative energy or blockages that may prevent your stone from working at its full capacity.

Rhodonite is one of the most potent energy transmitters, especially when it comes to the feelings of love and joy.

People often wear Rhodonite to encourage deep connections with those they care about. The first and most obvious reason to cleanse Rhodonite is that doing so will allow you to use the stone to its fullest potential.

Furthermore, your Rhodonite crystal's effectiveness may diminish with time. However, the vitality it once had can be restored with a proper cleansing.

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

Lastly, when your Rhodonite is cleansed, it can help to ground you and connect you to the earth, which is always beneficial if you're feeling scattered or disconnected.

Now that you understand why cleansing Rhodonite is vital, let's have a look at the various methods you can use.

How To Cleanse Rhodonite

There are several ways to cleanse your Rhodonite, and we'll discuss the most popular methods below:

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

Cleansing With Water

Water is one of the simplest ways to cleanse your Rhodonite. Simply hold the crystal under running water for 15 to 30 seconds and imagine the energy of happiness flowing back into the stone.

Cleansing With Sage Or Incense

Sage and incense are great ways to cleanse your Rhodonite, as they're known for their cleansing and purifying properties.

To cleanse with sage, simply burn some sage and waft the smoke over your Rhodonite. You can also hold your crystal in the smoke for a few extra minutes to get a nice strong cleanse.

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 Rhodonite as you would sage to achieve a deep cleansing. When performing this type of cleansing, keep your windows open to allow harmful energies to escape

Cleansing With Sunlight

Sunlight is one of Earth's natural cleansers. To cleanse your Rhodonite with sunlight, simply place your crystal out in the sunlight for a few hours. Be sure not to leave your stone in the sun for too long however as it may cause fading in your stone's color. Once you're done, you can bring it back in and start enjoying your stone.

Cleansing With Moonlight

Moonlight is equally effective at purifying crystals. Simply lay your Rhodonite outside or on a windowsill throughout the night or early morning hours when the Moon is most visible to cleanse it with moonlight. The moonlight will cleanse the stone of impurities and restore its loving energy.

Cleansing Rhodonite Jewelry

The methods previously discussed are useful for cleansing raw stones, but cleansing your Rhodonite jewelry requires a more delicate touch.

How To Cleanse A Rhodonite 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.

Furthermore, if your Rhodonite bracelet gets wet, the wire will rust and disintegrate.

We recommend gently cleansing your Rhodonite bracelets with either sunlight or moonlight. Simply leave your bracelet in the sunlight or moonlight for a few hours.

How To Cleanse A Rhodonite Necklace

We recommend using the same methods for cleansing a Rhodonite necklace as we do for bracelets. Sunlight and moonlight are both great options.

Now that you know how to cleanse your Rhodonite, you can keep them in top shape so they can continue to work their magic in your life!
