How to cleanse
Hematite, 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 grounding and protection.
The Hematite treats overeating, smoking or any kind of overindulgence.
It is a useful stone for the study of mathematics and technical subjects.
Physically, it also regulates the blood supply.
