Cleansing and charging rose quartz
Rose quartz must be cleansed and charged before it can help you. Whether you’ve just brought the crystal home, or you have one that’s been sitting around for a while, it’s important to first cleanse it of the energy it carries and charge it with new energy.
To cleanse rose quartz, place it in healthy soil, water, incense smoke, sunlight, or moonlight. These elements take energy from the crystal back into the earth, then charge the rose quartz to make it vibrant and powerful once more.
Now you can choose where to keep your rose quartz based on what you want to be blessed with.
Best places to keep rose quartz
You can keep rose quartz…
On your heart chakra
Rose quartz is an important crystal for the heart chakra, which is found in the center of your chest, on your breastbone (sternum).
Keeping rose quartz on or near your heart chakra opens your heart to receive love, boosts self-confidence, and lets the crystal do its most important work.
You can place rose quartz on your heart chakra while meditating. Click here for a step-by-step guide to a simple meditation with rose quartz.
You can also put rose quartz under your clothes, directly on your skin, and wear it for several hours at a time. Tape the crystal in place or put it in your bra (see the next section for instructions on the best way to do this).
Another option is to wear rose quartz in a long necklace, like this popular necklace on Amazon, so it lies close to your heart.
In your bra
Start by asking the rose quartz for what you need. Here are some rose quartz affirmations you can try saying to your crystal.
Affirmations are very powerful when you ask a crystal for something that the crystal has influence over, so ask your rose quartz for love, healing, happiness, fertility, friendship, peace, protection, or better sleep.
Put the quartz in the bra cup that’s on your non-dominant side. So, if you’re right-handed place the crystal on the left side of your bra and vice versa. Your non-dominant side is your receiving side, and it helps the crystal give you what you ask for.
During the day, put your non-dominant hand to your chest and reconnect with the rose quartz, repeating your wishes out loud or quietly in your head.
In a bedroom
Sleep with rose quartz under your pillow if you want to attract love, heal, sleep better, and boost your libido. If you’re single, keeping a rose quartz under your pillow is said to bring dreams of your next great love.
In fact, there are so many good things that happen when you keep rose quartz in your bedroom that I wrote this article about it.
With maternity or baby clothes
Rose quartz supports fertility and pregnancy, from conception through to birth and beyond.
The crystal carries a strong feminine energy, the vigor of motherhood, so placing a rose quartz with maternity clothes or baby clothes can support and protect you when trying to fall pregnant and throughout the pregnancy.
In a pocket
On days when you’re going out and need a little help from your rose quartz, keep your crystal in your pocket and take it with you wherever you go. This is a good idea if you’re going somewhere that makes you nervous or to have a difficult conversation with someone.
The best pocket would be on the top half of your body, as close as possible to your heart chakra, but a pocket on your lower half is fine if that’s all you have.
With exercise equipment or clothing
Keep rose quartz near exercise equipment or workout clothing to give you the energy to exercise.
With its close connection to the heart chakra, rose quartz boosts blood circulation. This can either get your exercise routine started or help you make movement a habit.
On your non-dominant hand or wrist
If you want to wear rose quartz as jewelry, in a beautiful bracelet or ring, it’s important to put it on your non-dominant side. If you’re right-handed, wear rose quartz on your left hand as this is the side that receives gifts from crystals, and if you’re left-handed, wear the jewelry on your right hand.
Near doors or windows
Keeping rose quartz near windows and doors that open to the outside of the house does two important things:
- It protects the house from negative and unwanted energy coming in, especially when there’s a large cleansed and charged rose quartz close to the front and back doors
- It keeps the crystal’s energy inside the house, and helps the people living there feel happy, loved, and connected
Place a large crystal or hang a rose quartz ornament, like this one, near doors and windows.
On your desk
Rose quartz can help you in the workplace by connecting you with others and by building professional relationships, or just making these better.
Keep a charged rose quartz crystal on your desk or in your desk drawer when you:
- Are focused on networking with others
- Have a strained relationship with someone at work
- Feel left out at your place of work
- Need someone to open a professional “door” for you (give you a chance or opportunity)
- Starting a business and need to attract customers
- Trying to motivate someone or a team
- Experiencing tension between colleagues
- Applying for jobs
With money or gold and silver
Rose quartz attracts money and abundance. The crystal encourages good relationships between people and opens communication, which often bring more financial opportunities and wealth. When they come, be sure to take them.
Keep a small rose quartz in your purse or handbag, and have some cash in your purse at all times so the crystal knows what to attract.
If possible, put a rose quartz in your house near real gold or silver jewelry, or on top of a bar of gold or silver.
In the bathroom
Rose quartz makes a wonderful accessory in your beauty routine, as a face roller.
A rose quartz roller helps spread creams and serums across all areas of the delicate facial skin, and helps your skin absorb these products.
A rose quartz roller also gifts the skin with important minerals, and helps the lymph nodes drain – which makes your skin plumper and healthier, and can make you feel better when you’re sick.
With keepsakes of lost loved ones
If you’ve lost someone you love or a pet, keep rose quartz with a photo or mementoes you have of the one that is no longer with you.
Rose quartz has healing properties and can help you deal with the grief and deep sense of loss you feel. It provides comfort and expands our compassion for accepting things we cannot understand or that hurt us.
On a charging station
If you don’t have anywhere specific to keep your rose quartz or you want to keep your crystal fully charged for when you need it, create a charging station as a permanent home for the crystal.
To make a rose quartz charging station, use something that removes old energy from the crystal and charges it with fresh energy. This can be charging crystals, such as a selenite bowl, healthy soil, water, salt, or any other crystal charging tool listed in this blog post.
