White Jade is a beautiful white stone. A rare variety of White Jade known in China as "mutton fat jade", is highly coveted and is valued more than gold. It is known for its properties of peace and joy.
For that reason, White Jade should be cleansed in order to keep it in tip-top shape.
Should You Cleanse White Jade?
Some believe that cleansing removes any negative energy that the crystal may have received, while others feel that cleansing is done to purify the stone before using it for healing. Excess negative energies can cause your White Jade to break, which signals something different than losing your White Jade.
White Jade is thought to carry vibrations of peace and tranquility.
It is believed to manifest serenity and promote good vibes. So the first reason you should cleanse White Jade is that won't be tapping into its full potential if your stone hasn't been cleansed in a while.
Second, as time passes, your White Jade will become less responsive to beneficial energy.
Finally, cleansing your White Jade will aid in the purification of your own energy, particularly if you keep the stone around or wear it as jewelry.
It is obvious that cleansing your White Jade is essential. Now, let's talk about how to do it.
How To Cleanse White Jade
There are many ways to cleanse your White Jade. Here are some of the most popular methods:
- in water
- in salt
- with sage or incense
- in sunlight
- in moonlight
Cleansing With Water
Water is one of the most basic ways to clean your White Jade. Simply place the crystal under running water for 15 to 30 seconds and imagine a wave of serenity pouring back into the stone.
Cleansing With Salt
To cleanse your White Jade with salt, simply add some salt to a bowl of warm water and stir until the salt has dissolved. Then, add your White 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 effective ways to cleanse your White Jade due to their cleansing and purifying characteristics.
Simply burn some sage and blow the smoke over your White Jade to purify it. Additionally, you can hold your crystal in the smoke for a few extra minutes to ensure a thorough cleansing.
To purify with incense, light the tip of the incense stick and allow it to burn for a few seconds, or until there is no longer any flame. As with sage, pass the smoke over your White Jade to thoroughly purify it. Ensure that your windows are open during this type of cleansing to allow the negative energies to escape.
Cleansing With Sunlight
For the majority of stones, sunshine is the most preferred method of cleansing. Simply expose your White Jade stone to direct sunshine for a few hours to purify it. Ensure that you don't leave it out for too long, as it could cause the stone to fade.
Cleansing With Moonlight
Moonlight is exactly as effective as sunlight for cleansing crystals. To cleanse your White Jade with moonlight, simply place it outside or on a windowsill at night or early in the morning, when the Moon is most visible. The moonlight will cleanse the stone of its impurities and restore its peaceful energy.
Cleansing White Jade Jewelry
When it comes to cleansing White Jade crystal jewelry, it's best to use gentler techniques.
Cleansing your White Jade jewelry is simple and fun - here's what we recommend:
How To Cleanse An White Jade Bracelet
First, we recommend avoiding a water cleaning for White Jade bracelets, as water can erode the thread that secures the bracelet.
Second, we do not recommend burning sage or incense next to your bracelet because the smoke could be too hot and damage the wire.
We do, however, recommend a moon or sun bath for cleansing White Jade bracelets.
How To Cleanse An White Jade Necklace
Use the same method for cleansing a White Jade necklace as you would for a bracelet. Use a sun or moon soak, but salt or rice baths can also be effective.
Avoid soaking your necklace in water and burning sage close to the necklace's wiring.
Cleansing your White Jade crystals and jewelry is a fantastic way to keep them receptive to energies of peace and serenity.
Now that you know how to cleanse your White Jade, you can keep them in top shape so they can continue to work their magic in your life!
