How To Cleanse Labradorite Stones

Last Updated on

Did you know that in order for crystals to keep their healing powers, you need to cleanse them regularly? This also applies to Labradorite, which can lose its effectiveness if not cleansed properly.

Over time, Labradorite can collect negative energy, which can lower its healing powers. To keep enjoying its benefits for a long time, it’s important to learn how to both cleanse and charge it.

The good news is that there are plenty of ways to cleanse Labradorite, and it’s not complicated at all. But it’s important to do it right to avoid damaging its natural makeup.

How to cleanse Labradorite: simple and effective methods

Beige stone called Labradorite.

Here’s how to cleanse Labradorite in six easy ways.

Running water

Not all healing crystals can go in water, but fortunately, Labradorite can.

When you place Labradorite under running water, it washes away the negative energy, and although this method works best under natural water sources, you can perform the ritual under tap water as well.

To start, imagine the water washing away the negative energy as you hold your Labradorate stone in the water. Don’t keep the stone under the water for long, as it may make it dull over time. Two to three minutes is fine. Once done, use a cloth to try your stone.


Cleansing Labradorite in the moonlight is my favorite method. All you have to do is place your Labradorite on a natural surface—like the ground outside or the floor in your home from direct moonlight shines in throughout the night.

The feminine energy of the moonlight takes away all the bad vibes or energies and cleanses the stone.

The ritual works best during the first three days of the full moon when the moon’s rays are the most potent.

A lot of people wonder if they can use the sun instead of the moon to cleanse Labradorite, but you shouldn’t. The sun’s rays are harsh on Labradorite, and may make it fade over time.


Purple polished stone

Did you know that you can also cleanse your Labradorite crystal by placing it under an Amethyst geode for 24 hours? It’s a super easy process, but it’s important to remember that Amethyst is harder than Labradorite, so be sure to wrap your Labradorite in a soft cloth during the process to protect it from any scratches.

And don’t forget to cleanse your Amethyst geode from time to time to get rid of any negative energies it may have collected.

Sonic vibration (sound)

Another great way to cleanse your Labradorite crystal is through sonic vibration. A popular method for this is using crystal singing bowls or chanting.

Just like with the water cleaning method, it’s important to stay focused on cleansing the crystal while using sonic vibration—imagine the negative energy floating outwards from your stone as the cleansing energy vibrations wrap around your Labradorite.

There’s no set time limit for this method—just go with your intuition and do it for as long as you feel necessary.


Although Labradorite shouldn’t be submerged in salt water, you can still use salt indirectly to cleanse it. Here’s how:

Take two bowls—one large and one small—so that the small bowl fits inside the large bowl. Fill the large bowl with salt, place the smaller bowl on top of it, and keep the Labradorite crystal in the small bowl.

Leave it like this for one to five hours. The salt will remove all the negative energy from the stone, restoring its original powers.


Another effective way to cleanse crystals like Labradorite stones is incense cleansing. There are different powerful natural incense like Palo Santo and Sandalwood.

Sandalwood is the easiest to find as it’s a popular incense for spiritual cleansing.

To do the procedure, light your incense stick, and keep your intentions clear while performing the ritual. Your mind should be focused on clearing all negative energy from the stone.

Now, circle the incense stick around the Labradorite crystal for a few minutes and then pass the stone through the smoke. Don’t let the stone touch the burning incense stick.

Once done, keep the crystal aside and blow out the smoke.


This cleansing method is pretty simple. Simply dig a hole a few inches deep in the ground and place the Labradorite crystal inside it. Don’t forget to mark the location of the hole.

Leave the crystal for at least 24 hours. After the recommended period, take the crystal out, wash it under running water, and dry it with a soft cloth.

How to charge your Labradorite gem

The healing properties of the Labradorite stones become less effective as the crystal ages. Therefore, after cleansing it, it’s best to charge the stone to re-instill its natural energies & healing benefits.

The following are some of the most effective ways of charging Labradorite crystals:

  • Your body’s energy is one of the best and fastest ways to charge the Labradorite. Rub the gemstone gently with clear intentions in your head of charging it. Do so for a couple of minutes.
  • Sound waves are another means of restoring the crystal’s positive vibrations. The Tibetan singing bowl is one of the best methods because Labradorite is associated with the Throat and Third Eye chakra, and the Tibetan singing bowl resonates with the same chakras.
  • Just like we used the moonlight for cleansing, we can use it for charging the stone as well. The process for cleansing and charging the Labradorite under the moonlight is the same.

Final thoughts

I hope you’ve found these tips for cleansing and charging your Labradorite crystal helpful and informative. Labradorite is an amazing stone with potent spiritual and physical healing properties.

By taking good care of your crystal and protecting it from harmful energies, you can ensure that its healing powers remain strong.
