Our Ritual Sand is made from Pure Black Quartz and sparkles in the light!
A must have for your cleansing rituals! Perfect to use with smouldering Smudge Sticks, Palo Santo, Incense, herbs &/or Charcoal Burning Discs! OR decorate your bowls with black quartz sand to hold your tea light candles, collected shells, or your crystals... the list goes on!

Using a layer of Ritual Sand in the base of your heat proof burning vessel ( abalone shell, cauldron, smudge dish)  prevents heat transference and protects your furniture from burns! It's ideal for house or large space clearings when you need to carry your burning smudge tool around with you. The sand will stop the base of your dish from burning your hands, and will also catch and extinguish any falling embers.
It is also an excellent way of putting out a Smudge tool once you have finished with your Ritual, and it won't ruin your smudge sticks! Simply place in the sand and allow it to rest until fully extinguished.

Black Quartz Ritual Sand is non toxic & water friendly. You don't need to replace the sand after each ritual, it can be reused for up to 10-15 times before you need to freshen it up! When the sand starts to get dirty simply rinse in a fine strainer with water, then air dry for reuse. OR pop it in the garden and start again with a fresh batch!
Size: 200g
Includes wooden spoon!
Your crystals can attract and hold positive and negative energy. It is  important to cleanse your crystals regularly! We have listed some methods for cleansing crystals below! Our absolute favourite is to combine moon energy and the burning of herbs (smudging)!

Sun and Moon Energy 
Place crystals somewhere that they will be fully exposed to the energizing rays of the sun and moon. on a window ledge Even if the day is cloudy or you cannot see the moon, their rays will energize the stones as long as they are directly exposed to these elements of nature. They will normally be cleansed within 24 hours of exposure. However, stones such as black tourmaline which are being used to deflect negative energies or help release negative energies in your physical and energetic bodies, may require up to 48 hours to become fully cleansed and regenerated. Stones such as amethyst will fade in the sun so you will have to use another method for cleansing and regenerating these gemstones. 

Earth Burial 
Place your crystals, directly into the earth or you can place crystals into a cloth covering, preferably a natural fabric such as cotton.  Leave the crystal buried for at least 24 hours to ensure that they become fully re-energized.  If possible, find a spot where the soil is not being spread with chemicals through fertilizers or pesticides.  This cleanses all negative energies and re-energizes the stones.
 
Smudging
My favourite!! Use white sage and begin to burn it until a good strong smoke is coming from your sage.  Hold the crystal in this smoke for at least one minute and preferably 3 or 4 minutes.  This clears all negative energies that have become attached to this stone but does not energize the gem or crystal.  To re-energize the stone, place it in a window so it can be exposed to the rays of the sun and moon.  
 
Using Another Crystal 
You can place the crystals, on another crystal, preferably a large quartz cluster.  This will clear negative energies and will also re-energize your crystals. Make sure you also cleanse and re-energize the large quartz crystal cluster regularly to ensure it retains its cleansing and re-energizing powers.
 
Running Water
If you are lucky enough to live where you have access to beautiful clear running water from a creek or river that you know is not polluted, place your crystals in a small container, and let the water run over them, preferably for at least 2 hours. This will cleanse and re-energize your crystals. Please do not use tap water, since it is full of chemicals.  Be careful though because certain stones will actually dissolve in water, e.g. Red Selenite.
 
Whichever cleansing methods you choose, please treat your crystals with gratitude, respect and kindness. These gifts from the earth do so much to heal at all levels including the physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual levels. If you no longer want to keep a crystal or gem, take it outside and bury it so it may return to Mother Earth.
