crystal cleansing ritual with added protection

If you're looking to get into or start rituals for relaxation, meditation, spell work, incantations, or more, you've come to the right place! You can get everything you need to enhance, protect, fortify, and boost your sacred space, altar, or any area you work in. Here we will show you everything you need to put together a beginner's ritual kit with crystals. We'll also give you an example of how you can use all of these items together and create your own enhanced, protected place for your spiritual or magickal work.

Beginner's Ritual Kit

The beginner's ritual kit is small, simple, and highly effective. You don't have to spend a lot of time or money to have a ritual kit that really works for you. You can always add more, too. However, what is listed below is all that is needed to get started.


  1. White Sage Stick
  2. Black Tourmaline
  3. Crystal Candle
  4. Quartz
  5. Crystal Essences and Essential Oils (optional)

1. White Sage Stick


Historically, Sage has been used since almost the beginning of time for different ailments or simply as a delicious herb to accompany food. It was the Native Americans and other indigenous people who for centuries have burned sage as a way to cleanse an area or person. The act of burning herbs for purification is said to have been around since antiquity. Saining, for example, is the Scottish Gaelic tradition of burning juniper leaves for cleansing and/or blessings.

2. Black Tourmaline


Protection is a major part of any ritual and should be considered when doing nearly any ritual. Whether you believe in demons, bad entities, ghosts, psychic vampires, or just old-fashioned negativity, it doesn't matter. You need protection. If it's not protection from things that go bump in the night, it's protection from yourself. It keeps you out of your head and lets the negativity be pulled away from you and grounded before it can affect you or what you're doing. The best form of protection in the mineral world is Black Tourmaline. Grab yourself one or a set six to keep near while you meditate, do spell work, perform rituals, astral travel, and more.

3. Crystal Candle


Lighting a candle has been part of spiritual and religious rituals for many centuries. For some, it brings in the energy of the God or Goddess. For others, it offers a light in the darkness, to lead the way to spiritual enlightenment. Lighting a candle also brings significant fire energy to any rituals or spell work. Many find lighting a candle to be soothing and relaxing. Whatever your reason may be, we recommend starting with a crystal energy candle like the Sacred Space Crystal Candle.

4. Quartz


Quartz crystals are a must-have for any type of ritual work. It can be used for spell work, meditation, dedications, astral travel, and much more. They are the ultimate manifestation crystal. This is why you'll often find them at the center of most crystal grids. Quartz crystals are renowned for their ability to take a wish or your desires and amplify them out into the Universe. They are also wonderful amplifiers of other crystals. You only need to keep one nearby to take advantage of its benefits. If you're using Quartz for a wish, desire, or goal, hold it in both hands and speak your desire into it.

5. Crystal Essences + Essential Oils


Crystal Essences allow you to take advantage of the healing benefits of many crystals at once. Plus, you can always have it on the go with you or use it elixirs, spell jars, and other applications. Find individual crystal essences or check out the sample size set. Essential oils bring in the element of aromatherapy into whatever you are doing. This can be great for relaxation, boosting the mood, spells, meditation, calming the mind, and more. We recommend trying the sample size set to see which ones work best for you and your purpose.

Create Your Own Beginner's Ritual Kit

Whether you're setting up a soothing bath, relaxing meditation, adventurous astral travel, or magickal spell work, having a ritual kit is essential! First, you want to cleanse the area by burning some sage. Then you'll want some Black Tourmaline crystals to protect yourself and the space around you. After that, you should light a candle for personal power or fire energy. Lastly, you should make sure you have at least one Quartz crystal nearby. Optionally, but recommended, add in the crystal essences and essential oils needed to reach the purpose of your ritual, such as relaxation or happiness.

How to Set up Your Space

This is just an example of how you can set up your space or prepare an area effortlessly for your ritual.

  1. Light your candle and ask the God or Goddess to be with you. Alternatively, you can invoke the strength of your own personal power.
  2. Use the candle to light the sage stick. If the end of the sage stick ignites, gently blow it out and let the sage smolder. Move the smoke around yourself and your space carefully. You can speak an affirmation here such as "I cleanse myself and this space".
  3. If you have a set of Black Tourmaline, set them up around you in a circle. If you only have one, set it in front of you a foot or two away.
  4. Place a Quartz crystal directly in front of you. If you have more than one, you can also place them in a circle around you but make sure they are inside of the Black Tourmaline circle.
  5. Anoint yourself (such as your wrists) or other items you might be using with at least one crystal essence and one essential oil. This is optional. Use essences and oils related to your goal. For example, if you want to boost your mood, try Carnelian Crystal Essence mixed with Bergamot Essential Oil.
