What is a Gem Elixir?
A gem elixir is water that has been attuned to, or absorbed the energies of certain crystals.
How do I make an Elixir?
Place your cleansed gemstones in a glass cup, bowl, etc. Pour spring or purified water over the gems. Cover it with cheesecloth or gauze, and allow it to sit for a night. By morning, the elixir should be ready for use. You can drink it, rub it on your skin, etc. As a side note, if you don't want to place your crystal directly in the water, you could place it in a smaller glass and place that in the water. Others use an alcohol base for their elixirs, some used energized water. To make a gem essence or elixir with an alcohol, add the gem elixir to organic brandy. Try to keep the mixture half and half. Equal amounts. To make the energized water, one method says to place the elixir in the sun for 3-4 hours before use.
