How To Cleanse & Charge Rose Quartz With Water | 13 Methods

Rose Quartz is a crystal known for its loving energy and ability to enhance self-love. It also attracts love from others, making it great for relationships. But as with all crystals, it must be cleansed and charged often.

In this article, I will give you 13 ways you can cleanse & charge your Rose Quartz crystal at home using water—and no incense or candles are required.

What is rose quartz?

Rose Quartz is one of the most popular gemstones due to its beautiful color. Rose quartz is also known as “the stone of love” because it helps bring couples together. Rose quartz is often associated with romantic relationships, but it is good for everyone.

13 Ways to Cleanse & Charge

Method #1 – Running Water

Place your Rose Quartz in a bowl, then fill it with water. Run the water over the crystal until it’s full of moisture, then remove it from the bowl and dry it off with a towel.

Repeat as often as necessary until your Rose Quartz feels charged again.

Method #2 – Waterfall

It is a good idea to get in the habit of cleansing crystals with water. This can help remove unwanted energy, restore their natural energy, and cleanse any negative thoughts attached to your crystals. You can also charge them with water by placing them under a waterfall or next to running or still water.

Waterfalls are excellent for cleansing and charging your crystals because they are places where large amounts of pure, clean water flow over them continuously for long periods. There are many different types of natural waterfalls that you can use for this method, including:

  • Natural Waterfalls
  • Manmade Waterfalls (such as those found in power plants)

Method #3 – Ocean

This method is similar to Method #2 but is a little more involved. It involves taking your stone to the beach and letting it soak in the water while you walk along with it in your hand. If you don’t have access to a beach, any place with moving water will do: streams, rivers, fountains, and even bathtubs.

Place your stone in a bowl of fresh water and wait for at least 10 minutes (you’ll probably want to do this overnight). You’ll notice that after some time passes, the color of the water will change from clear (like when you first put it in) to some kind of murky or muddy color, depending on where you took it from. This means that negative energies are being released from within your stone which can be detected by seeing this change occur.

Method #4 – Rain

Rain is one of the most powerful ways to cleanse and charge your rose quartz crystals. Here’s why:

It’s a soft, gentle way to cleanse and charge your crystals.

Rainwater is pure and free from pollution.

Third, it gives you time alone with your crystal, which allows you to connect with it more deeply.

A crystal can absorb negative energy from the environment as well as excess positive energy from being charged repeatedly in the same way that electronics store static electricity for discharge when touched against another object or person (known as “charging”).

If this happens over time, it may cause damage to your crystal’s structure or make it unsafe for use again because any negative energy absorbed by its molecules will leak out into surrounding objects when heated up during normal operation—and this could be very dangerous if released accidentally at high temperatures.

Method #5 – Cool, Clean Water Bowl

Fill a bowl with clean water (not too cold or too hot).

Place the crystal in the water and watch it sink to the bottom. Leave it there for 5-10 minutes. Then take it out of the bowl and pat it dry with a soft cloth or towel. Make sure to keep an eye on your crystal as you do this.

You don’t want to get any water trapped inside its holes or cracks because that could damage your stone during charging time later on when you are using it for meditation purposes. Once dry, place somewhere safe until ready for use again.

Method #6 – Circle of Stones & Crystals

To cleanse and charge rose quartz with water, place the stone in the center of a circle you’ve drawn on the floor or ground and then fill that circle with other crystals and stones. Then, lift them all together ceremoniously, calling upon them to help cleanse, clear, balance, and revitalize your rose quartz crystal and any others in the circle.

Method #7 – Moonlight

The moon’s light is a powerful cleanser and energy source, so it makes sense that it can also be used to cleanse and charge rose quartz. In addition, the moon will help draw off any negative energies from your stone, making it ready for use when you need its calming qualities.

When holding your rose quartz in the light of the full moon (or new moon), be sure not to look directly into the light, as this could cause eye damage. If you’re worried about this happening, just don’t stare at the crystal—just hold it up so that its surface is facing toward you and towards the moonlight instead of directly viewing either object itself.

Method #8 – Sunlight

If you’re lucky enough to live near an ocean, lake, or river, there’s a great way to charge your crystals with sunlight.

Find a place to leave your crystals outside in the sun for a few hours (preferably on a warm day). If this isn’t possible, try leaving your crystals outside on a sunny windowsill for at least 30 minutes.

Leave them there until they’ve absorbed enough energy from the sun—this should take between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on how hot it is outside and how much time has passed since they were last charged in this manner.

Method #9 – Smudging (Sage, Palo Santo, or Sweetgrass)

Smudging is a Native American ritual. It’s a way to cleanse the energy of an area or person, as well as the energy of crystals and stones. To smudge, you will need the following:

  • sage (or any other herb that is traditionally used for cleansing)
  • a lighter or matches

For this method, we recommend using Palo Santo sticks because they are known to be especially effective at clearing negative energies. However, if you don’t have any Palo Santo or want something different, sage is also very effective at smudging away negative energies and bringing positive ones into your space.

Method #10 – Incense (Sandalwood, Myrrh, Frankincense, or Nag Champa)

You can also use incense to cleanse and charge your rose quartz. Incense is a great way to naturally cleanse and charge your rose quartz.

It’s important to note that incense is safe for most people, but if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, talk with your doctor before using any cleansing method.

Method #11 – Sound Bath (Drumming, Chanting, Bells or Chimes)

  • Sound is vibration, and it is a form of energy. Sound can cleanse and charge crystals, people, and spaces.
  • Sound cleansing with crystal singing bowls or chimes
  • Sound healing with gongs or bells
  • Chanting or drumming sessions (you can do this in person or online)

Method #12 – Burial in the Earth’s Crust (Cleansing & Charging)

You can bury your crystals in the earth. Many people are familiar with this method of cleansing and charging, as it’s often used for cleansing and charging stones you find on the beach or in nature. The idea behind this method is that the earth itself carries an energy that helps cleanse and charge your crystals (and/or stones).

To do so, simply dig a hole in your garden large enough to fit your crystal(s), then place them inside and cover them back up again with soil or sand.*

If neither soil nor sand seems an appealing option for you, but you still want an easy way out without having to wash away all those negative vibes by hand (we hear ya), we recommend using dirt from around the base of plants growing outside rather than digging up some fresh sod from somewhere else entirely—this way will allow whatever moisture remains inside after watering their last week’s rainwater runoff without making any holes where harmful chemicals could seep through onto nearby surfaces like concrete patios.”

Method #13 – Saltwater Soak (Cleansing Only)

You can cleanse your rose quartz with saltwater by placing the stone in a jar or bowl filled with enough water to cover it, then adding about two tablespoons of sea salt. Let the stone soak for 24 hours and rinse it in fresh water before using it again.

If you want to go even further, try soaking the stone in sea salt and white vinegar overnight. (Note: this is not recommended if you use your rose quartz as an essential oil diffuser.)

Some Expert Tips

Rose quartz is a stone of love, healing, and compassion. Rose quartz draws in divine energy that can be used to attract love into your life. This gemstone is also known as the stone of universal love because it has the ability to help you forgive yourself and others around you.

The third chakra (the heart chakra) connects us with our emotions, so if this chakra is blocked, it may impact your emotional well-being. Therefore, rose quartz is used to bring peace into your life by helping you release negative emotions like anger or resentment so that you can feel more positive about yourself again.

Rose quartz helps heal emotional wounds from past relationships, so they don’t hold back from forming new ones in the future; however, sometimes these old wounds need some extra work before they can heal properly – which makes them perfect candidates for cleansing rituals like this one.

In addition to cleansing and energizing crystals like amethyst and fluorite, which require lots of sunlight exposure during summer months when days get longer than usual, hours per day were unavailable during winter months.
