Just as humans have different needs and feel overwhelmed by their environment, dogs can face many challenges too. That’s especially true when your little pal is a shelter dog probably abandoned by their previous human, or they were born on the streets.
Dogs need time to adjust to their surroundings and learn to trust. They can also struggle with anxiety and behavioral problems due to their past traumatic experiences.
You might know that crystals have become quite popular for their beneficial energies and vibes. People use these gems for purposes such as stress relief and manifesting love. Similarly, crystals are believed to infuse your dog’s energy with their beneficial vibrations.
And as a bonus, crystal charms are a fun way to accessorize your doggy and make them even more adorable!

Cleanse Your Dog’s Crystal Charms
Just as you would do if you were to use crystals for your needs, it’s essential to remember to cleanse and purify your dog’s crystal charms. Especially when you first bring them into your home and your pet’s life, cleansing them of physical and energetical impurities is a must.
You do not want any negative vibes or intentions near your dear furry family member. So depending on the crystal you purchase, you can cleanse it under running water, smoke it with a sage stick, or place it in a selenite bowl.
There is also the option of leaving it on a window sill overnight to bathe it in the Moon’s light. Or you can use the sunbathing version, but most important is visualizing the purification during the preferred cleansing method.
After cleansing, charge your crystal with your purest intentions and affection for your dog and attach it to their collar. Repeat the cleansing and charging of your charm crystal from time to time or when needed.
