Our preferred method of cleansing the necklaces is using the Purple Positive Energy Plate. This plate not only cleanses but enlivens the gems to their optimal functioning.More importantly - it is easy. You place the gems on the plate overnight and you have a newly energized necklace - ready to bring the utmost benefit to you. There is no concern of which gem can tolerate sunlight, which one can be in water and which one can survive salt. All gems can be placed on the plate and be cleansed.
Adding additional sprays that are said to cleanse your necklace is not recommended as this only creates more build up and inhibits the flow of the necklace natural energy.
The necklaces do need to be washed or better said, rinsed about every two weeks or so. If you are noticing there has been a great initiated through a specific necklace then consider rinsing every few days.Necklaces trap sweat and skin oils between the beads and on the thread itself so a water rinse helps to keep the build up to a minimum. If you use scented oils, lotions, and other things on your skin then it helps to use a touch of unscented natural soap to cleanse away this added obstacle.
Recommended method is to use warm water to rinse your necklace.If using soap, lather it on your hands then rub necklace between the palms to cleanse. Thoroughly rinse away all soap - again using warm water.Thoroughly dry your necklace with a cloth or towel.
DO NOT PLACE IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT.
This will strongly effect the integrity of your thread.Rather place on purple plate until string is no longer wet or damp.
Easiest is to wash in evening before bed, place on plate overnight and the next morning your necklace is ready to go and help you with continued healing.Another recommendation for cleaning that can be done every month or so is to use a small, fine brush and gently rub between the beads. This can also be used often if you wear lotions, oils and perfumes to help loosen the build up that is created by these items. (We actually recommend not to use these items for the longevity and best working of therapeutic necklaces.) The small brush can be used in conjunction with unscented natural soap for a deeper cleaning.
