Crystal Care

Good day everyone.  I have just received a couple of questions from a reader about crystal care.  Since I recommend using crystals a lot, I decided it’s time to write this small post on how to maintain them.  It’s not just about keeping these charms clean but charging their energy.  They need our help with both of those things just like we need their help for what we want to attract.  Here’s what to do.


Sun and Moon Expose’

Start with giving your crystals the gentle light of the moon.  Make sure you have a good spot in your home where the moon can be seen.  Place your crystals directly into the moonlight.  Keep them there for two nights.  They will be charged and ready for the next step.


To balance out the moon energies you will need the power of the sun.  Like the moonlight, you need to place y

our stones in a good spot where the sunshine can directly touch them.  Keep the crystals in this spot for another two days.  I want to note that you can do the sunlight and moonlight steps simultaneously.  It doesn’t have to be separate steps as the outcome is the same.  I notice that in some homes the sun and moonlight are better in different spots.  With the strength of the sun inside them, they are balanced but now they need grounding.


If you have house plants in your house then that’s the perfect place to do this task, otherwise take them to a safe place in your yard.  Lightly bury the crys

tals into the earth.  If you are doing this in your yard then make sure you have a marker placed where you have buried them so it’s easy to find them again.  Leave them for one day.  Dig them up, brush them off and then lightly blow on them so they know it’s you.  Onto the next step.

Salt Water Bath

Salt Water

Have a small bowl of water and mix a pinch of sea salt in it.  Place the crystals lightly in the salt water.  If you have crystal that is a bit wear-and-tear then put it in an empty jar and place them both in the water.  This way you can still have the water’s pure energy without losing bits of your crystal.  Set this in a nice out-of-the-way place for a day and then retrieve it.

Your Energy

Last but not least go to your mediation spot and hold the crystals in both hands.  Close your eyes and concentrate on your gemstones for five minutes.  Visualize this bright white light surrounding your stones.  Imagine this light getting brighter and brighter as the minutes go by.  When you open your eyes and your crystals look brighter then your duty is done.  If not, just take a couple more minutes with this step.  Put your crystals in their places and walk away.

After completing these steps you will have successfully cleaned and charged your beautiful stones.  Repeat these steps 2-3 times a year.  With your patience, nurturing and love they will work their magic.  Incredible things happen with these amazing gems after a little TLC.  Make sure you too have a little sunlight, moonlight, soil, salt water and meditation of your own.  Take care!

Making Magic Come To Life

Greetings fun-seekers, adventurers, explorers and adrenaline-junkies. Thank you choosing to visit my blog; Light, Laughter and a Little Magic. My name is Erika but I also go by “The Oracle.” I’m a blogger and aspiring story-teller. I’ve been blogging since January 1, 2015. I’ve been on a couple of sabbaticals but I am back and looking to help others find exciting escapades.

I’m a fun-loving woman who loves a good adventure and to write them down. I’ll be taking you all on some of my experiences in hopes to not only entertain but inform. There are so many amazing things to see and do out there. Some of the things I do will involve spending some money while others will not cost you a dime. The stories I tell you can be done with family, friends or by yourself. Whatever the experience, I hope to set your imaginations free and inspire you to try some of these amazing things.
I am a free spirit on a journey and in order to tell you my story, I have to share it with you this way. But first, here are a few things about myself. I have a sweet little kitty named Karma, I live in a colorful plant-filled condo and have a lot of things that I like to do. My favorite hobbies include circus acrobatics, archery, yoga, knife-throwing, cooking and gardening. That’s right, I’m a circus-loving foodie with a penchant for long-range weaponry, and a fondness for plants. I’m also very much into meditation, music, dancing, travelling, love stories, nature, and just about anything that’s fun. Life is too short, you might as well do everything that this world has to offer.

Goals for My Blog

For me, blogging is about sharing what’s inside of you with the people in your life. My goal is to start your day off on a happy note while you have your first cup of coffee in the morning. Or, you can enjoy my blog at the end of your day while you are enjoying a glass of wine. Either way, I wish to inspire you to grab life with both hands.

What you can expect from my blog

Magic and fun. I will recommend some pretty cool stuff that should be tried at least once. You will also notice that everything I write has a bit of a mystical twist. I see the world as an exhilarating enchanting amusement park that’s waiting to be explored. I would never recommend anything that I didn’t like, this I promise you. Prepare to be enlightened, entertained and even given some practical advice.

Will you join me on a magical journey?


  1. Great article! Good suggestion on putting crystals in a jar before placing them into salt water — some minerals (like selenite) will turn to absolute mush if they’re left wet for too long.

  2. Interesting read… I’ve never worked with Crystals, so pardon my ignorance, but do all crystals do the same thing? I love the journey you are on and I wish you much success down that path.

  3. I asked for more crystals for
    Christmas (: whenever there is a full moon, I forget to put them outside. I haven’t ever tried burying them in houseplants… that’s an easy one! What’s your favorite crystal?

  4. What a very interesting post. I’ve never worked with crystals, but this has got me very interested. Thanks for sharing.!

  5. I have heard crystals are good for healing and shedding the negative energy but I haven’t used any, maybe I should learn more about them and this is a starting point. Thank you so much
