Clean Your Crystals & Keep The Happy: Part 2

Clean your crystals and keep them happy. Doing this regularly helps them function optimally and creates good Feng Shui in your home. Sometimes things seem like more of a chore than they actually are. Cleaning bigger decorator crystals is easier than you think and very gratifying. All you need is some soapy water, a brush, a hose and depending on how big they are, a hand carrying them in and out. Healing crystals heal more effectively when they’re happy. Watch how Susan cleans hers here. And you can learn the best way to clean smaller crystals in our previous post, Clean Your Crystals & Keep Them Happy: Part 1.

Susan gives you an easy step by step procedure to clean your crystals! In part 1a, she shows how to clean small stones and in part 1b, she shows how to clean large decorator pieces. If you’d like to add to your crystal collection, we have a great assortment.
