All stones, gemstones, and minerals - whether raw, natural, tumbled, or cut into precious gems are referred to as crystals when they are used for their therapeutic properties.

There are many ways to utilize crystals for healing and health benefits. Crystals can be selected and laid around the body in particular layouts or crystal grids, depending on the desired outcome. Tumbled stones can be carried in your pocket or placed under your pillow while sleeping. Gem essences or tinctures can be used for effective first-aid remedies.

Most crystal healers believe crystals should be cleansed regularly to maintain their effectiveness. Many professionals believe that if you do not cleanse your crystals regularly, most become saturated and unable to do their work.
There are many methods of crystal cleansing to choose from. Cleaning crystals can be fun and easy. How you cleanse your crystals will not only depend on which method(s) you prefer to use, but also on how durable or fragile your crystals are.
Some crystals, such as Carnelian, never need cleansing. Carnelian can also cleanse other stones. Keep a Carnelian with your gemstones and they will not need additional cleansing. Many crystal healers also believe that dedicating and programming your crystals can help them to work more efficiently.
