The heart chakra connects to this stone. Using Rose Quartz can help balance and heal the heart chakra, allowing you to radiate love and compassion. 

Like most crystals, you should cleanse Rose Quartz crystals and jewelry at least once a month to keep them functioning in tip top shape. If you do not regularly cleanse your Rose Quartz, you can feel anxious, insecure, and unsettled, and might question your value and relationships with others.

Luckily, if you want to know how to cleanse Rose Quartz, there are many different methods to utilize, allowing you to choose one that fits your lifestyle best. Rose Quartz is a hard stone that is not damaged easily, which is why most methods work well for this crystal.

Using sage, Palo Santo, and incense, you can remove negative energy from people, things, locations, and crystals. Cleansing your Rose Quartz with incense is one of the best methods to consider, as this method does not damage your crystals.

  • Put an incense stick, sage bundle, or Palo Santo stick in a heat-resistant or ceramic dish.
  • Light one end of your chosen item with a candle, lighter, or matches.
  • Gently move the smoke around the Rose Quartz with your hand or a feather. Ensure that the smoke fully encircles the crystal.
  • Declare that you wish your Rose Quartz to be cleansed by the incense smoke. 
  • Visualizing the smoke and flames consuming the negative energy of the Rose Quartz will make the cleansing process much more effective.
  • Visualize the smoke leaving the room and the negative energy vanishing into nothingness as the smoke disappears.
  • If you have breathing problems or asthma, it might be best to avoid this method and consider another method that is not a potential health hazard.

Can Rose Quartz go in salt? Salt naturally cleanses and detoxifies, and it can cleanse various salt-safe crystals. Salt cleanses crystals the same way other crystals like Selenite or Clear Quartz can, because it is a crystal in and of itself.

  • To cleanse your Rose Quartz with salt, bury it in a dish of salt for 24 hours. 
  • The salt will absorb negative energy from the Rose Quartz.
  • After using the salt, throw it away because it will absorb and hold onto whatever negative energy is in your Rose Quartz.
  • The salt you use to cleanse Rose Quartz should never be consumed.
