These days, you can find a crazy fad or way to use just about anything on the internet. Crystals are no different. I have been doing research on crystal elixirs and what they can actually do for you. Are they safe? Well, that depends on how you are making them.
Crystal waters, elixirs and essences go by many, many names. Gem waters, gem elixirs, gemstone tonics, gem tonics, gem essences, crystal waters, crystal essences, crystal tonics, and more. They all mean the same thing.
Using any of the above names would be correct. Since, gemstones are cut and polished crystals, either gem or crystal is fine. Tonics, elixirs, and essences are all essentially water. They all describe the same thing, a water-based essence containing infused crystal energy.
What is a Crystal or Gemstone Elixir?
According to Wikipedia:
"An elixir (from Arabic: إكسير - Iksīr; from Greek xērion powder for drying wounds from xēros dry) is a clear, sweet-flavored liquid used for medicinal purposes, to be taken orally and intended to cure one's illness. When used as a pharmaceutical preparation, an elixir contains at least one active ingredient designed to be taken orally."
I am not sure about the ability to "cure" one's illnesses, but I do know they have helped me emotionally and spiritually, like a flower essence. A crystal or gemstone elixir is a water that has the healing capabilities of crystals infused into it.
The energy patterns of crystals are the result of subtle alteration and focusing of Universal Life Force energy. In making elixirs, water absorbs the crystal's energy pattern, and stores it while giving it the potential to help us.
Why Use a Crystal Elixir?
We already know that crystals have amazing healing abilities. For them to help, we can wear them, sleep with them, carry in a pocket and just have them in our energy field. Why not take it one step farther? We all need to consume water on a daily basis, so why not add the healing abilities of crystals? It can give us an extra boost. This is just another way to use our crystals to heal ourselves emotionally, spiritually and physically when needed. Whichever crystal (s) you choose, those healing properties will be infused into the nourishing water you drink.
