Negativity/Space clearing/Protective stones & practices

 
This information is by no means exhaustive and brings together practices from different cultures as well as the use of crystals and different minerals. 

Salt; Salt has been used for centuries as a purifier. It is thought to absorb water particles in the air and trap the pollution they contain. It can be used to cleanse crystals (by placing them in a bowl of salt).  You can even place bowls of salt in a room to cleanse it, removing it after its done its job. 

Palo Santo; ‘Holy Wood’ or ‘Wood of the Saints’. Burning these sticks is a sacred practice by indigenous Andes communities to cleanse their space and ward of evil spirits. You do not need to use the whole stick in one go, it should last you a while as it can be kept and reused. (Make sure it is fully extinguished after each use and stored safely).

Kyanite; cleanser and clearer of negativity. It can be used to remove blockages on your energy field (by gently wafting the kyanite blade through your Auric Field around your body) as well as by being worn to keep your energy clear and protected.

Black tourmaline; Grounding and protective. This affirmation sums it up ‘I banish negativity, I am protected on all levels’.

Sage; burning sage is one of the oldest and purest methods of cleansing space, people and crystals. Open a window or door while you do this to let the smoke flow out and cleanse. You do not need to use the whole bundle in one go, it should last quite you a while as it can be kept and reused. (Make sure it is fully extinguished after each use and stored safely).

Nag champra cones/incense; Nag Champa has a soothing fragrance that helps relax your nerves and reduce stress.
