Crystals are living, energetic beings. Believe it or not, crystals hold onto the energy they take in from you and from their environment. It’s good practice to purify their vibration on a regular basis, especially if you use them often or with others.
Purifying your healing crystals lightens their energy, removes old energies, and ensures that they are vibrating their healing properties at the highest potential. When you learn how to recharge crystals on a regular basis, it can enhance their healing properties and strengthen their ability to support your intentions.

The full moon confers its sacred feminine energy to anything that receives its soft light, so Every full moon, it's a good idea to lay your crystals on a window sill, bathing them in the moon’s photons.
