Why Should I Cleanse My Semi-Precious Gemstone Bracelet?

It is important to understand why you might want to cleanse your gemstone bracelet. Gemstones are believed to have energy that can be influenced by their environment and the people who handle them. When gemstones are exposed to negative energy, they can lose their natural energy and become less effective. Cleansing your gemstone bracelet can help to remove any negative energy that the gemstones may have absorbed and restore their natural energy.

Cleansing and clearing semi-precious gemstones is an important step in maintaining their energy and vitality. Think of your crystals like your cellphone, sometimes you need to stop everything and plug them in to recharge them…here are some of your options…

How Do I Do a Cleansing on My Gemstone Bracelets?

Semi-precious bracelets are believed to hold unique energies that can help balance one’s mind, body, and spirit. However, over time, these energies may become blocked or depleted, and the bracelet may lose its effectiveness. To restore the bracelet’s full potential, many people choose to perform a cleansing ritual on their gemstone bracelet. This practice is said to remove any negative energies and recharge the gemstones, allowing them to radiate their full healing and protective powers once again. Let’s get into some of the most popular ways to cleanse your gemstone bracelets!

1. Use Visualization to Cleanse Your Gemstone Bracelet

An excellent way to cleanse your semi-precious gemstones is to use the impressive power of intention and visualization. Start by holding the stone in your right hand (The left-hand draws positive energy in and the right hand sends any negative energy out and away) and focus on the intention to release any negative energy or blockages it might be holding onto. Then, visualize a bright white light surrounding the stone, cleansing it of any impurities. If you want to, you can choose to speak your cleansing intention out loud. You say whatever you like, just as long as you make your intention clear and concise. You could say something to the effect of …

  • “With these deep breaths & heartfelt words, I release any negativity that may have attached itself to this healing stone.”
  • “With love & light, I send away any negativity that may have attached itself to this soothing stone. I do not require it because it does not serve my higher good.”

Take your time; don’t be in a hurry. Treat it like it’s a mini meditation.

2. Use Sea Salt or Himalayan Pink Salt to Cleanse Your Gemstone Bracelet

Another effective method is to place the gemstone bracelet in a bowl of sea salt or Himalayan Pink salt overnight, completely submerging it beneath the salt. Leave it out of the way, on your countertop, making sure it’s out of reach for any little hands.

After 24 hours, you can take the bracelet out. Be sure to pull the submerged gemstone bracelet out of the salt using a fork, ensuring you do not touch the remaining salt. You’ll be using the fork to protect yourself from any negative energy that has been released from the stone, into the salt.

To get rid of the salt from your bowl, there are many different approaches. Read through the following methods and find one that you are most comfortable with…

  • Pour it down the toilet,
  • Toss it in the garbage or
  • Bury it in the backyard.

All carry the intention of freeing yourself of the negative energy. “Flush it away, it can’t stay”, “Toss it Out, it no longer serves you!” and “Bury it and Say Goodbye” Go with whatever metaphor suits you best.

3. Use the Majesty of Mother Earth to Cleanse Your Gemstone Bracelet

Burying a semi-precious gemstone bracelet in Mother Earth is a common practice for those who believe in the cleansing and recharging properties of the Earth. This ritual involves burying the bracelet in soil for a certain period of time, usually overnight or for a few days, and allowing the energy of the Earth to purify and recharge the gemstones. Some people believe that this process helps to remove any negative energies or vibrations that may have accumulated in the stones and restores them to their natural and harmonious state. So if you’re looking for a simple and natural way to cleanse and recharge your gemstone bracelet, burying it in Mother Earth might just do the trick.

There is something very soothing about the thought of Mother Earth cleansing away any negativity that your gemstones and crystals might be holding on to. Do you agree?

4. Use Smoke/Smudging to Cleanse Your Gemstone Bracelet

Holistic smudging is an ancient practice that has been used for centuries to purify and cleanse the energy of spaces and objects. The practice involves burning herbs such as sage, Palo Santo, or cedar, and using the smoke to cleanse the aura or energy field of an object or person.

When it comes to semi-precious gemstone bracelets, smudging can be an effective way to cleanse the stones of any negative energy they may have accumulated. To begin, light the smudging herb of your choice and let the smoke fill the air around you. Hold the bracelet in the smoke and visualize the negative energy being released from the gemstones and dissipated by the smoke.

After smudging, you can also charge the bracelet with positive energy by holding it in your hand and focusing on your intention for the bracelet. This will help to infuse it with your positive energy and intentions, amplifying its healing properties.

It’s important to note that not all gemstones can withstand the heat of smudging, so it’s best to research the specific gemstones in your bracelet before attempting to smudge them. Additionally, some people may be sensitive to smoke, so it’s recommended to smudge in a well-ventilated area or consider alternative methods such as sound or crystal cleansing.

5. Use Sound Vibrations to Cleanse Your Gemstone Bracelet

Sound has been used for centuries as a powerful tool for cleansing and purifying various objects, including gemstones. The vibrations produced by sound can help to remove any negative energy that may have been collected within the gemstone bracelet, leaving it refreshed and re-energized.

  • One way to use sound to cleanse a gemstone bracelet is by using a singing bowl. If you’re lucky enough to have a singing bowl, you can cleanse your gemstones by playing it over your crystals/gemstones. Use the singing bowl any time you feel like your gemstones are not working as effectively as usual. The beauty of using this method is that the cleansing can take place regardless of any timetable.
  • Another method involves using a tuning fork. Simply hold the fork near the bracelet and strike it. The vibrations produced by the fork will travel through the bracelet, helping to remove any negative energy.
  • You can also use your own voice to cleanse your gemstone bracelet. Simply hold the bracelet in your hand and chant a mantra or sing a song that resonates with you. The vibrations produced by your voice will help to cleanse the gemstones and leave them refreshed. 
  • You can also cleanse your gemstone bracelet by using another type of sound instrument and striking the instrument. The sound waves will help to release any negative energy from the gemstones. 

No matter which method you choose, it’s important to set your intention for the cleansing process. Visualize any negative energy leaving the bracelet and imagine it being replaced with positive, healing energy. With a little bit of practice, you can use sound to cleanse your gemstone bracelet and keep it energetically balanced and refreshed.

My personal favourite technique is to cleanse my jewelry in the brilliance of the full moon. Before I go to bed, I simply place the items on my windowsill and let the non-invasive healing energy of the moon cleanse them. No fuss, no muss.
