Crystal healing therapy has become extremely popular in recent times. It is believed that by placing the gemstone on your body you will draw out any negative energy that has been clouding your mindset.
Holding crystals and wearing them on your body is a great way to ensure they’re forming the strongest possible interaction with your body’s energy field. At Gypsy Moon, we stock our crystals in a variety of forms, including stunning jewellery for you to wear daily.

How to cleanse & activate your crystals
So, you’ve purchased your new healing crystals—now what? It is very important to cleanse and activate your crystals to ensure you achieve the full extent of benefits.
Below are some ways to achieve a thorough crystal cleanse and activation:
- Salt water is essential. Soak your crystal in salt or ocean water. This will ensure your crystal is cleansed of any negative energies it may have picked up on its travels to you. Before you obtain your crystal, it may have passed through a few different hands. You want to make sure your crystal is free from other energies that may be causing an unbalance.
- Other methods to cleanse your crystal include smudging scared herbs or sage, dry salt, running water, non-contact salt and sound vibrations.
Next, you want to charge your crystal. It is important to regularly charge your crystal to make sure they perform their best. Leaving your crystals out under the sun or moonlight will ensure it is charged. For best results, leave your crystals out overnight under a full or new moon.
The final step for your new crystal is activation. In order to activate your crystal, sit quietly holding it in the palm of your hand. Centre yourself and focus on your breathing in order to relax. Speak aloud and set a goal for your crystal and the intentions you hope to achieve.
Your crystal should now be ready. For more information regarding our crystal products and the activation process, contact us today. Browse our range of crystal products in our online shop or arrange an appointment to visit our Gold Coast store.
