"A Little Dab Will Do"- With the crystal in hand, set an intention to cleanse negativity or charge the stone with your healing intentions. Next, add 1 to 2 drops of essential oil, massaging for a few moments as you meditate on your cleansing or charging goals. What's great about this technique is that you can carry your crystals and their beautiful scent with you throughout the day. 

Spread the Goodness – If you have a diffuser, you can add a few drops of essential oils as you usually would. As the steam is released, you can hold your crystal above it setting your intention out loud or within to cleanse or charge your crystal. The best part about this technique is you will fill your space with the same purifying or healing vibrations you are infusing your crystal with. 

Like a Breath of Fresh Air – Begin by adding a few drops of essential oil to warm water in a small spray bottle, give it a little shake and spray your crystals with a light mist. The best part of this practice is the essential oil spray can also serve as a perfume oil or room spray. This technique should be reserved for crystals that are water safe but typically won't cause damage to water-soluble crystals. Just be mindful of small children, pets, and allergic reactions.
