How to cleanse
Black Tourmaline, like most crystals, should be cleansed periodically.
My best recommendation for cleansing your crystals is to do so with smoke. This could be from sage, Palo Santo wood or incense sticks. Allow the smoke to engulf your crystal and visualize its energy being renewed. After cleansing it, set your intention for your crystal by holding it in your hands and speaking your affirmation into it. This could either be specific or more general, relating to protection.
This is one of the very best stones used for protection.
Tip: Make an energetic grid in your home by placing a black tourmaline crystal in each corner of a room. This helps protect you from unwanted negative energies entering your space.
