These stones are slightly coated with polish, which provides them with a protective layer that stops them from reacting with your skin and causing you any irritation.
If you are unsure whether a stone or crystal may react or not with your skin, it is easier to buy the safest polished option.
2. Clear the Space for Your Crystal Healing Session
Before you have your sacral healing session with crystals, you should prepare and clean the space.
The space you choose to have a crystal healing session should be comfortable, quiet, and without drafts so that you can fully concentrate and be present during the healing session.

When you acquire crystals, you should clean them from any energy they may have picked in their journey.

Use a glass or plastic container to avoid any reaction between the crystal and the material of the container
Place the brown rice in the container, put the crystals on top and leave them overnight
Discard the rice in the morning
Once your crystals are cleansed, you need to charge them to unlock all of their energy.
To charge your crystals, you can place them under sunlight. This will excite the atoms in the crystals before you put them on your body.
If you plan to place the crystals directly onto the skin, warm up the crystals under the light of a lamp or place a towel on a heater and put the crystals on top. This can also be useful if there is no sunlight when you are planning to do crystal healing.
