I am a massage therapist with 15 years of experience. I am especially interested in crystals, energy healing, numerology, and wellness.
Explore and learn from my first experience making gem elixirs. A gem elixir is a water that is charged with the healing energy of crystals.
Sharing My Experience Charging Water With Crystals
Today is October 1st, my birthday. Early this morning about 1 AM I got this great idea. Maybe this was a gift from God and my loving Angels and guides. I got the idea to create some Elixirs charged with my recently acquired crystals and stones. At this time I didn't know what type of elixirs or what intention I was going to give them just that it would be a special gift to myself if I created these elixirs on my special day, the day of my birth.
I believe birthdays have a special energy because we give them so much attention, remembering to celebrate or do something special this one day out of each year to honor our God for giving us life energy. So this day, October 1st, I'm accepting my birthday gift from God and my guides and allowing them to give me the gift of happiness in the form of these elixirs charged with pure life energy. I plan to leave them for 24 hours so they are charged and blessed by both the Sun and the Moon.
Since I didn't know what intentions I was going to give to these elixirs I allowed the Crystals and Stones that I recently acquired speak to me. I cleansed each of the stones and crystals that I was going to use with a White Sage Smudge Stick. I placed each one aside and thought about what their properties are and what Chakras they are good for. One by one they gave me ideas about prosperity, raising my vibration and enhancing communication and creative expression, the heart-shaped rose quartz for healing, love and compassion and so forth until I had 4 bottles each with separate intentions.
As I placed them into each jar I placed a label plainly written with a black marker to mark the intention clearly and said a loving affirmation for the stones that I was placing in each of the jars. While saying these affirmations I was envisioning receiving this energy from each through the water and how they would manifest for me my desires. It was an incredible experience and I began getting very excited. The weather outside is just perfect. At about 11:30 AM I put the stones out on the table just as the sun was rising high in the sky beaming down just right on each of the jars. I said a prayer thanking God, my angels and guides. I am so grateful for this experience and am glad to share it with you.
To learn to make Gem Elixirs of your own you can start by watching the instructional video at the end of this article to give you some instruction and helpful tips.
Once you have tried making Crystal Elixirs on your own you may want to go further, exploring different crystals in different elixir recipes. The book, Gem Water: How to prepare and use over 130 Crystal Waters for Therapeutic treatments is a great place to start learning and experimenting to achieve your desired therapeutic outcome. This was given to me as a gift and I've found it is very informative about different methods of preparing your elixirs and a great resource for searching different crystal properties as it relates to crystal elixirs.
Making a Money Elixir
To charge my water to make a money elixir I chose a tumbled stone known for manifestation, Citrine. Citrine has been called the Abundance Stone. Citrine raises self esteem and attracts and maintains abundance. Citrine is associated with the Solar plexus Chakra (3rd) and it is said about this Chakra that the ability to bring change into your life and to the world is born within this chakra, therefor manifesting abundance with this stone is very appropriate.
I also included a large quartz generator which is known as The Energy Stone. Clear quartz amplifies energy and thought, dispels negativity and transmits energy. I intend to amplify the vibrations of the citrine to help manifest prosperity and wealth in my now. I believe it is important to charge your stones with the intention that is is manifesting your desires now and now waiting for the future. Now is the most important. Live in the now.

Will Power And Protection Gem Elixir
Red Tigers Eye, is known as the stone of protection. It's element is fire. The Chakra for Red Tigers Eye is the Root (1st) Charkra. It protects against and grounds negative energy. It also enhances your will power, positivity and confidence.
I've always felt drawn to this stone and really love its properties. So again letting the stones speak to me, I labeled this gem elixir, "Will Power & Protection."
Love Generosity And Relief Gem Elixir
The gems I used in the wonderful elixir are citrine, Pink Botswana Agate, and a large piece of Rose Quartz.
For me this gem elixir was about clearing and relief. I recently had 3 family members to pass within a short time. This can sometimes bring feelings of loss and sadness. This gem elixir is the right mix to get those spirits of joy back.
For obvious reasons, Rose Quartz is the love stone. It balances heals and rejuvinates the emotions while also cooling hot tempers and clearing stored anger.
You may be wondering why I chose to also include Citrine in this mix. Citrine, while is is mainly known for manifesting and prosperity, it also has some other great attributes. Citrine can strengthen your Will Center and dispel heaviness and denseness of emotions.
Pink Botswana Agate
Pink Botswana Agate was a key component to this elixir because its the stone of gentleness. Returning back to yourself and resetting emotions is not always an easy or fast thing to do. Pink Botswana Agate balances and soothes the nervous system while also having some other very important attributes like helping one handle change in a positive way. It aids one in focusing on the solution instead of the problem.
Balance Chakra Gem Elixir
A Balance Chakra Gem Elixir can include various stones that correlate with the chakras. You can use just a few stones or one for each specific chakra. Some stones correlate with more than one chakra such as Citrine. Citrine's Chakras are the Root (1st), Sacral (2nd), and Solar Plexus (3rd). Feel free to play with this and choose the stones that you have or that call you and want to be used.
Specularite; a variety of hematite
Corresponds with Chakras: Root, Heart, Sacral, and Solar Plexus
Specularite is used to ground yourself when feeling scattered.
Chevron Amethyst; a combination of Amethyst and Clear Quartz
Corresponds with Third Eye and Crown Chakras
The clear quartz magnifies the energies of the amethyst, which makes it a perfect stone to use in elixirs and grid work. Chevron amethyst is known for its psychic energies and ability to strengthen and clear your aura.
Heart Shaped Rose Quartz; a rose quartz shaped into a heart form
Corresponds with the 4th chakra.
The heart shaped rose quartz gives both a visual vibration as well as an energetic message of unconditional love, joy and warmth. Rose quartz is healing especially when working with the heart chakra.
Carnelian; the motivation stone, clarification and action towards goals
Corresponds with the Sacral Chakra, but also works well with the Root and Solar Plexus.
Carnelian was used at one time to protect the dead on their final journey to the after-life.
Citrine; the Stone of Manifestation
Corresponds with the root, sacral and solar plexus chakras.
Citrine, purifies and strengthens one's will center, powerfully increases your clarity of thought and will impart joy and optimism and attract prosperity.
Sodalite; stone of insight
Corresponds with the throat (5th) and Third-Eye (6th) Chakras
Sodalite enhances intuition, observation and creativity and provides confidence for one's inner knowing.

Asbestos is a well known useful but hazardous material and can cause lung cancer, but its dangerous fibers are well embedded in hawk's eye and cat's eye and pose no danger for its owner. They are completely replaced by quartz and iron oxides in tiger's eye.
However there are alternative ways that are equally effective. First the intention is most important in anything you do so the safest way without using any crystal would be to use Reiki energy to charge your water. You may also use crystals outside of the bottle to charge your water. This method is good for including crystals that are damaged by water or are water soluble crystals.
There is also a very great product called VitaJuwel. They make products for gem infused water that is perfectly safe in glass vials ready to use. http://store.vitajuwel.us/

I just read on another site that hematite can rust and tiger's eye naturally contains asbestos? If this is true, then perhaps there are safe alternatives after doing some research.
Here is the site where I read this:
