Also called a gem essence or crystal elixir, a crystal essence is water that has received the energetic properties of the crystal that has been placed in it. Together crystals and water are allies in nature, and it’s another lovely way to work with the metaphysical vibrations of healing crystals.
A crystal essence is super easy to DIY: place your crystal of choice in a glass of distilled water overnight. Voila, you did it. Thanks for stopping by.
Once you have your essence you can add it to an herbal tincture or combine with flower essences. The herbal allies that resonate for me are essential oils. Play with it and have fun! My preservative of choice is witch hazel because it’s great for the skin and not-problematic for anyone in recovery (that said, some folks use vodka or brandy. Be you and live out loud).
Lots of folks take essences internally and I say use at your own risk, especially around toxic stones like malachite. For me, energies transcend time and space, so I’ve found that working with them externally is just as beneficial. (Be you, live out loud).
How are the essences for SPIRIT WORK made?
So glad you asked! When I make the essences for SPIRIT WORK I work ceremonially, which involves some backyard magic/under cover of night type shit. I find the energies to be very potent, as I’m holding space for all of the recipients and am working on a pretty big scale. I use many stones for each essence and prefer to work with them in their raw or rough and untreated state.
