Care Instructions - Crystal Bracelets
everlur crystal bracelets are hand-made with all natural gemstone beads. Natural gemstones can absorb the negative energy in their environment so it is important that you keep your bracelets clean, cleansed, and charged so you can benefit from their healing energy all day long. With this in mind, all everlur bracelets are thoroughly cleansed and charged before they are shipped so they are ready for you to use for healing and manifestation.
Here are a few tips on caring for your bracelets so you can keep them looking beautiful and benefit from their healing properties all day long.
How to care for your crystal bracelet on a daily basis:
Keep your bracelet dry
Your bracelet is not meant to be worn in the water. Minerals and chlorine added to most tap water and swimming pools can harm the natural stones and metal spacer beads. Some crystals like Angelite also have a low hardness which makes it a relatively soft stone that does not like to come in contact with water. If you accidently wear your bracelet while your hands are submerged in water, make sure to dry them off right away.
Take off your bracelet before working out
Your crystal bracelet is meant for everyday wear however, to avoid scratching the natural stones or overly stretching the elastic cord, we recommend that you take off your bracelet before working out or doing anything really active.
Protect your bracelet from harsh chemicals
Lotions, harsh soaps, and even sweat can create build-up and discoloration between the crystals. If you are cleaning with household cleaners, applying lotions and oils, makeup, hair spray, or perfume take off your bracelet until you are done.
Store your bracelet in a clean, dry place
All everlur crystal bracelets come with a reusable velvet pouch. Use it to protect your bracelets when not worn. You can also store your bracelet inside of a jewelry box or other clean, dry place.
Clean your bracelet with warm water and a mild soap when needed
If you see any discoloration or build up on or in between your beads you may clean your bracelet with warm water and a mild soap. Gently scrub the beads with a wet soft cloth and a tiny amount of a mild soap. Rinse under warm water, and dry gently with a clean soft cloth.
How to cleanse your crystal bracelet:
Why is cleansing your crystal bracelet important?
Cleansing the energy of your bracelet is just as important as keeping it physically clean. Crystals are naturally extracted from the earth and therefore naturally retain the energies of the sun, moon and the ocean which are all considered natural healing energies. Depending on the type of minerals they are made from and the specific conditions they grow in, each healing stone also holds its own unique energy and has magnetic tendencies that arise from their molecular composition. These unique properties allow crystals to communicate with the energy flow of the human body as well as their physical environment, absorbing negative energies and blockages all day long. To keep your crystal bracelet high vibe and ensure that you benefit from their healing powers, it is important that you cleanse their energy on a regular basis.
How often do I need to cleanse my bracelet?
As a general guideline, the more you wear your bracelet the more energy it collects through direct contact with you and your environment. A good rule of thumb is to cleanse it at least once a month to make sure it stays high vibe. However, I always recommend using your intuition as much as possible. If your bracelet feels energetically heavier than usual and disconnected from you, it is most likely time for a cleanse.
I have outlined a few simple energy cleansing methods below that you can do at home. I recommend that you choose one that resonates with you and your spiritual practice. There is not one method that is better than another so use your intuition to find the one that feels good to you. If you’re unsure, give a few a try and continue with the ones that resonate.
Every everlur bracelet is thoroughly cleansed with sage and charged with the frequencies of crystal singing bowls before it's shipped out to you.
Leave your crystal bracelet under the (full moon) moonlight for about 6 hours.
Sage is a sacred plant that has many healing properties and has been used for thousands of years to clear negative energy. You can burn either Sage or Palo Santo to cleanse your bracelet by allowing the smoke to run through the stones for a few minutes.
Selenite, Quartz, or Amethyst Crystal
Use a selenite slab, larger quartz or amethyst crystal to cleanse your bracelet. Selenite, quartz, and amethyst all have the ability to cleanse and purify other crystals without losing their own energy, which makes them powerful cleansing agents. Lay your bracelet on top of a selenite, quartz, or amethyst crystal for at least six hours to cleanse its energy.
The sound of crystal singing bowls, tuning forks, crystal pyramids, and tingsha bells emit powerful vibrations when played, that have the ability to balance the energy of crystals. It is also a very ethical cleansing method that is used by everlur to infuse every crystal bracelet with healing vibrations, allowing them to do their healing work effectively.
Brown rice can also be used to draw out the negative energies of crystals in a safe and contained setting. Fill a small bowl with dry brown rice and lightly bury your bracelet beneath the grains for 24 hours. Once complete, dispose of the rice right away. Do not cook or consume it as it has absorbed the energy you were trying to clear.
If you don’t have any of the above resources, visualization can be a powerful and simple way to cleanse your bracelet on a daily basis.
Before you start, take a few moments to ground and balance your energy. You can do this by meditating with your bracelet for a few minutes or doing a quick breathing exercise (i.e. take 10 deep breaths). Hold your bracelet in your hand and visualize your hands fill with a sparkling white light. See this light growing bigger and bigger, penetrating into the crystals and purifying them of all negative energy. Envision this light flushing the crystals of all impurities. Continue this process until you feel a noticeable shift in the stones energy.
How to charge your crystal bracelet with your intention:
After you’ve cleansed your bracelet it is important to charge it with your intention so you can use it for manifestation and other spiritual practices. Check out How To Use Healing Crystal Bracelets for manifestation - A Step by Step Guide for more information.
While all crystals have certain properties that they naturally possess and things they can support you in (i.e. rose quartz is used to attract love), it is very important to let your crystals know what exactly you need help with. This allows the crystals to focus their energy on your specific need and help you heal and balance whatever needs healing.
Here is a simple step by step process you can use to charge your bracelet with your intention.
Crystal Charging Ritual:
1. Hold your crystal bracelet in your hands and put it close to your heart.
2. Clear your mind of negativity. You can do this by meditating with your bracelet for a few minutes or doing a quick breathing exercise (i.e. take 10 deep breaths)
3. Choose an intention that resonates with you and focus on this intention. You can either repeat this intention out loud or in your head. For best results I recommend formulating your intention like an affirmation to indicate that your desire has already manifested in your life. Every everlur bracelet comes with a suggested affirmation as well as a bracelet activation prayer to help with the intention setting process. You can use the suggested affirmation, prayer, or find one that resonates with you and your intention. Repeat your affirmation, focus on your desire, and feel how it would feel to already have whatever it is that you are asking for.
Example: Money & Prosperity Bracelet - I now charge my crystal bracelet with the energy of money and financial abundance. Thank you universe for all the money in my life. Money is an unlimited resource that’s always flowing my way.
4. As you continue to repeat your intention, visualize a sparkling white light connecting your heart to the crystals. Continue to repeat your affirmation until you feel a deep connection to your bracelet.
5. Repeat this crystal charging ritual as often as you want or whenever you feel disconnected from the stones.
