The metal decor in the bracelet or charm can be silver plated. Over time the plating can tarnish if not cared for properly. If exposed to damaging elements such as lotion, soap, shampoo, perfume, or hairspray, the plating may turn color. Returning your bracelet to an air tight packaging when not worn will keep tarnish at bay. If you feel the bracelet needs cleaning, wipe with a damp cloth to prolong its beauty.
Crystals can absorb energy, good and bad from people or the environment around you. Cleansing and charging your bracelet’s energy often is recommended.
Here are a few ways:
Cleansing your Bracelets
- Cleanse with Sage smoke or Palo Santo smoke:
Use a feather or your hand to fan the sage or palo santo smoke onto the crystals for thirty seconds. This is known as ‘smudging’. Smudging using sage or palo santo smoke is an amazing way to release unwanted energy, therefore along with your bracelets, smudge yourself and your space as well. You will feel much lighter once smudged.
- Cleanse with Selenite:
Lay your bracelets over a selenite bar, in a selenite bowl or around a selenite tower or a piece of selenite overnight while you sleep.
- Cleanse with warm water:
Place your bracelet under warm running water; this rinses away unwanted energy.
Charging your Bracelets
- On a full moon, place bracelets outside or on a windowsill in the moonlight overnight. The beautiful and powerful moonlight will cleanse and recharge your crystals.
- Cleanse and recharge your bracelet in the sunlight. Place your crystals outside or on a windowsill in the sunlight for a few hours.
