Over time copper may naturally oxidize or patina to look more antique.
This is okay, as some people prefer the appearance of antiqued copper. However, if you would like to brighten your copper peaces, follow the outlined steps below:
For small/ intricate copper peaces (such as ankhs, eyes, crystals, etc.) simply soak your peace(s) in white vinegar for approx 3-5 mins (or until desired color is reached), then rinse thoroughly with cold water. Dry off your copper peaces, and wear as normal.
For larger peaces (such as PowerCuffs/ Power Bracelets, necklaces, etc.) simply brighten your copper peaces with steel wool.
Grab a piece of steel wool, and scrub back and forth until shine is visible. Repeat over the entirety of your peace.
Be sure to wash your hands of any lingering oils or body butters first.*
For your safety: goggles and gloves are advised —steel wool has small fibers that may poke and/or penetrate skin.
Additionally, wearing your peaces on top of your attire will produce a high glossy shine, that may help to brighten your peaces over time.
How do I cleanse my crystal(s)?
Over time your crystals may need to be cleansed or “reset”. There are various ways to do this; however, we recommend using sage smoke + your intentions to cleanse the energy of your crystals.
Simply allow the smoke to flow above/ around your crystals and focus your thoughts on the cleansing and balancing of energy in your crystals at the same time.
Feel free to research the different ways to cleanse the energy of crystals, to see what most resonates with you.
