How to create a gem essence?
There are many different essences you can create – crystal elixirs, vibrational essences using essential oils and flower essences. Vibrational essences are a good way of connecting with nature and the elemental as well as helping with healing and for support.
You will not be able to make them to sell but you may use them for yourself or gift them to family and friends.
Essences are always made with a good intention by the person making them whether they are a therapist, practitioner or just yourself!
Flower essences can be made by placing the flowers you wish to use in a bowl of water. The water can be tap water however distilled or mineral water is preferable. Cover the container and leave overnight. Remove the flowers and then preserve the essence with alcohol, either brandy or vodka. If you don’t wish to use alcohol cider vinegar may be used instead.
Essences using essential oils
Use the same method as above but put a few drops of essential oils in. Maybe use ones you enjoy the aroma of. Lavender and peppermint are good for helping with headaches, bergamot is good for emotions. Lemon is good for cleansing. Please check that you are able to any oils if you are pregnant.
- Recipe for Nature’s Essence to connect with Elementals
- Crystal chips – either clear or rose quartz
- Ionised water
- Spray bottle
- Patchouli oil (to represent gnomes)
- Peppermint oil (to represent sylphs)
- Clove oil (to represent salamanders)
- Ylang Ylang (to represent undines)
Fill the bottle three quarters full with ionised water, add a splash of vodka. Add 20 drops of peppermint oil. 15 drops of clove oil, 12 of ylang ylang oil and 10 drops of patchouli oil. Place the crystal chips in the water. Put the top on and shake. This is now ready to use.
Begin by cleansing the crystal you wish to use and ideally after recharging it in the sun or at the full moon. Throughout the process of making your elixir focus on the intention of why you are making and what it is for. Yo could place the finished elixir in the sunlight or the moonlight once you have made to energise it more. Use either tap, distilled or mineral water and place your crystal in. Cover the container and place it in the fridge and leave overnight. The elixir will be ready the following morning.
Use the ratio of one quarter preservative and three quarters of your essence. Place 1 – 5 drops of the essence in a glass of water and use either until it is done or you feel it is no longer needed. Store in a cool, dark place away from any electronics.
If you find another essence that works for you please feel free to share.
