To make a crystal elixir, place the gemstone of choice in a glass jar of water and leave it outside for at least twenty four hours to soak up the sun and moon’s healing life force. If you do not have twenty four hours to soak the crystal it is preferable to leave the elixir out in the sun for as long as you can. Unless the moon is full, the sun tends to charge water faster.
The idea is that when we drink the elixir it will cause physical shifts in the body as it heals our own molecular structure as it aligns it more closely with the energy of the crystal.
When making a gemstone elixir always be sure to use purified or distilled water. It is also important to only use a glass jar and plastic one because chemicals from plastic clean leach out into your elixir.
Some other tips are to research the crystal you plan on using your elixir beforehand and making sure it is an insoluble stone and is otherwise safe to use in an elixir. Quartz are commonly used in elixirs and many people describe feeling an almost immediate charge after drinking a quartz elixir.
When you want to use a stone that is not safe to use directly in the water, store it next to the container instead.
This can be a really healing and restorative ritual to add to your life. Feel free to experiment and I wish you luck on your own healing crystal journey.
