Hi there,

I would love to try making my own crytal tonic (leaving a crytal in water over night in water to drink the next morning)

I have read that this can be benaficial to the body and mind and especially have instant effect on the energy field, although i am causious to use the correct method and crytal as to not do damage.

Can anyone experienced or with knowledge recommend a 'recipe' for a morning refresher to bring about clarity of mind and wellbeing in a possitive balance?

I have a crystal decanter 'for whisky' which i could use to infuse my crystal in 'in the fridge. I have a little selection of crystals, so may have something usefull, if not i could buy one specially.

Thank's xxMags.

Ok so i think i'm going to use a Rose Quartz as there are behefits such as helping with stress related conditions including headaches - which i have had for a few day (all day). So i am going to submerge the Rose Quartz into a crystal decanter of tap water. Our tap water is very clean as we are the Highlands of Scotland - its drinkable from tap.

They say to charge the water/crystal remedy by either sunlight or moonlight - is this necessary? AS it is very clowdy her at night, so no visable moon usually - would that make a difference do you think to the moon light beams penetrating the decanter?

Would love even one persons opinion on this please,

love and light

xxMags.

Wish I had something to offer, but I've never made elixirs.

I dont know much about making elixirs. In fact, I don't really know much about crystals either... but I do own a beautiful quartz crystal point which i use when reading cards. At night, I place the crystal on my window sill. The thing is, though (because of how my room is facing) you cant even see the moon from my room!

However, I think perhaps the moonbeam is still somehow touching the crystalbecause I have definitely been noticing a difference in the quality of my readings. Or it could just be the placebo affect. who knows?

anyway, if I were you, I would still try to lay the crystal out in the moonlight! I would imagine some moonlight (though filtered) would be better than nothing?

hopefully someone with more experience with this kind of thing could give you better advice than me

Thank's anyway Cardlady, i did wonder if i would hear from you on this :.) I see you as a fountain of knowledge. However i will be posting my findings if any so you are very welcome to have a wee look it at my findings :.)

Thank's Olivia, i think you are right! I have prepared the tonic and will put it outside in my carden in the sealed decanter. I am using the crystal quartz (rose), this time and i have planned to also use a Amythest Chevron for tomorow night as this helps to open psychic channels among many other things. I wonder what will happen after i drink this one as i am prone to clairaudience and psychic tendancies anyway, could be exciting. I don't mind being my own guineepig :.) I will just need to use alot of protection and grounding.

Oh and your Quartz Point sounds so lovely! My baby (i should say crystal friend) just now and hopefull for many many years is my new Bandberge Smokey Quartz it has a rainbow in it and it is also a gateway stone too - i love it dearly.

I will keep you both posted - wish me luck for tomorow nights experament :.)

lol and mine, too, because I am curious to see how you make out! I am all about positivity and finding inner balance so if it works for you, I think that I would like to try it out too.

Michael Gieger has done a nice little book on Gem Elixirs - might be worth a look on Cygnus or Amazon. It is only a small book but packed with info.

hopefully someone with more experience with this kind of thing could give you better advice than meHello... Crystals do love moonlight, absolutely, and it is one of the best ways to cleanse them and charge them up... I can't help but wonder though if the Moon isn't having its effect on YOU as much as on the crystal... I can see the Moon from my room, and during Full Moon its almost luminous in the whole room (hubby complains about too much light, as we don't do curtains), and I am completely buzzy, and cannot get to sleep, not because of the light, as even in a darkened room elsehwere in the house the Full Moon keeps me buzzing... :)...

To make elixirs, choose which crystal offers the properties you most want, and either place it directly into clean, pure water (the direct method), or place it in a glass bowl that sits WITHIN another bowl of water (the indirect method), and place in the sun. There are some conditions to this though... you need to know whether the crystal in question is

a) toxic, in which case always use the indirect method as poisons can leach from the crystal into the water, or

b) fragile, in that it is water soluble and may fall to bits/dissolve in water, in which case also use the indirect method... In any case of uncertainty, always err on the side of caution...

There are so many different crystals for different uses... even if you ask regarding one to refresh, it could be carnelian etc to boost energy and strengthen the physical body, or it could be more a spiritual uplift, which could invite the various quartzes etc... A wonderful all-purpose little book for choosing crystals is Crystal Prescriptions (by Judy Hall author of The Crsytal Bibles 1 and 2) Very handy and compact... she also tells you how best to use it, ie as in indirect exlixir, hold in hand, sleep with crystal under pillow etc etc etc and yes, Michael Geiger's books are amazing... well, at least the one that I am familiar with "healing Crystals"... beautiful...

many blessings to you

i have never seen a crystal (in person) with rainbows in it!

Yes it is so unusual - and the rainbow is viewed through a sort of window, and it is an actual rainbow shape, like it is arched, and you can see right into the quartz and the rainbow is on a little slice of crystal within. Very beautiful, and they never mentioned the rainbow in the description of the stone online so i don't even think they knew it was there :.)

Lol, that is even better, your lucky, i can't even work out a library or file anything so i will never achieve this, i'l be forever blond with little snippets of 'i'm sure i have heard of that before, i just can't remember' :.)

Hi Linnie!

Hello... Crystals do love moonlight, absolutely, and it is one of the best ways to cleanse them and charge them up... I can't help but wonder though if the Moon isn't having its effect on YOU as much as on the crystal...

Oh i put all my crystals out on the full moon just the other night. So they are all nice and sparkly and cleansed and charged. And you are right i am very receptive to the pull of the moon :.) It can mess with my head and make me all confused, usually on a full moon.

I can see the Moon from my room, and during Full Moon its almost luminous in the whole room (hubby complains about too much light, as we don't do curtains), and I am completely buzzy, and cannot get to sleep, not because of the light, as even in a darkened room elsehwere in the house the Full Moon keeps me buzzing... :)...

Oh how lovely, we don't see the moon from our room, i wish we could. Yes it doesn't matter i think if you can't see the moon, as it is the effect it has on all water all over the earth, a house or a wall will not shield this.

To make elixirs, choose which crystal offers the properties you most want, and either place it directly into clean, pure water (the direct method), or place it in a glass bowl that sits WITHIN another bowl of water (the indirect method), and place in the sun. There are some conditions to this though... you need to know whether the crystal in question is

a) toxic, in which case always use the indirect method as poisons can leach from the crystal into the water, or

b) fragile, in that it is water soluble and may fall to bits/dissolve in water, in which case also use the indirect method... In any case of uncertainty, always err on the side of caution...

Yes i used a rose quartz over night last night. I did read about possible cautions also so i was carefull to check this, thank you for the advice :.)

There are so many different crystals for different uses... even if you ask regarding one to refresh, it could be carnelian etc to boost energy and strengthen the physical body, or it could be more a spiritual uplift, which could invite the various quartzes etc...

Thank you for the book recommendation! I will check it out, i usually only buy recommended books. I will see about Carnelian as this crystal holds the benefits i was initially looking for. I don't have a Carnelian so will need to source one. I haver a crystal bible by Cassandra Eason, so i must have a search through it, however i don't remember seeing anything about Elixers, i could have missed it though.


Thanks for your thoughts Linnie,

love and light beams.

So i made the Rose Quartz Elixer last night, i used boiled and cooled pure water, in a crystal decanter. Submerged a Rose Quartz into the water. And placed outside to be charged and cleansed by the moon light.

This morning i was so tired, but i had a glass before 'all' my caffeine. I remained very tired ( so i need to look at buying a more suitable crystal for energy boost such as Carnelian recommended by Linni.

However the only thing i noticed was when my husband left for work i felt sad to see him go as i felt full of love for him. This is not normal Lol :.)

As i am used to him leaving on Monday morning for work away through the week, i don't mind it atall infact i like it. Getting settled again after the weekend and doing things with my daughter.

So this was unusaul, i will need to check what emotional benefits there are for using Rose Quartz, to see if this hightened emotions of love and adoration.

Because this is how it was ' i loved him so much, felt like i didn't want him to leave, i felt really connected to his feelings also, i felt his sadness at having to leave home'.

Checked the book... In relation to my mood, it says that this Crystal helps to help a person to forgive mystakes. This makes sense as i am usually anoyed at my husband, he is a frequent big mystake maker - like on a daily basis, it gets draining. But this morning after the Elixer it did feel like nothing else mattered. It also mentions that this stone was used to strengthen relationships or call upon love.

Well it's not a scientific experament and i may be surmising (which i am as it is a personal experament) or it could be placebo effect who knows?! But that was unusual feelings as i probably should have been anoyed at him for being a pain over the weekend :.)

If there are anyother happenings i'l edit this post.
