How To Make Your Own Gem Essences

Gem Essences

Crystal and gem essences are a wonderful way to gain the crystal healing powers of a specific crystal. You may be wondering, what exactly is a gem essence? Gem essences are created from select healing stones and powerful crystals. When these healing stones are infused into purified water, they create highly vibrational water that captures the gemstone meanings and healing properties. They offer your body a revitalizing energy, similar to a mineral springs, which have been used for centuries as a regenerating modality for both internal and external healing. Gem Essences work to stabilize and balance your energy field, chakras and energy centers within your body. Think of gem essences like juicing with crystals—you are extracting their healing energies and properties, like the nutrients from fruits and vegetables, so that they can heal your body from within.

On these beautiful, sunny California days, there is nothing we would rather do than to make a fresh gem essence! And you can make them at your home as well! When you are choosing your crystals for your gem essence, we would suggest that you choose ones that have similar gemstone meanings and properties so that your intention for the healing stones would all be the same. For example, if you wanted to bring love energy into your life, you create a Rose Quartz essence, like the one pictured. One thing to remember: make sure that you give your crystals a deep cleaning before you use them—you wouldn’t want any dirt or negative energy to get infused into your gem essence!

The process is quite simple. You will need a clear, glass container (preferably with a lid—we like to use a Mason Jar), your nicely cleansed crystals and a place outside to charge your gem essence, one that will be fully exposed to the sun:

  1. Hold your crystals in both your hands and set your intention for your crystals. You can either visualize the intention, or state it aloud. You can also express the specific benefits you are looking to receive from the gem essence you are making. This helps to direct and transfer the gemstone meanings and vibrations from the crystals directly to your essence.
  2. Place your cleansed crystals into the bottom of your container, and then fill your container with purified water; we like to use alkaline water.
  3. Put your lid on your container.
  4. Place your gem essence out in the sunlight for at least 2-4 hours so that it can fully charge. You can also let your gem essence charge outside for 24 hours, letting it receive both full sunlight and moonlight.

After you set your intention for your crystals, it is important to minimize your direct, physical contact with the crystals and the water in order to keep the crystal energy from being muddled with your own energy, and thus affect the power of the essence.

Once you have finished making your gem essence, there are a couple different ways you can use it! Some people like to put a couple drops on their wrist, neck or directly on their tongue each day. You can place a couple drops in your juice or water, to be taken at intervals throughout the day. You can also try mixing your gem essences into your moisturizers or lotions or putting it in your baths. We like to put our gem essences into spritzer bottles and spritz them all over our face or body in the morning before we start the day.

The gem essence pictured above is one that Energy Muse co-founder, Heather Askinosie, made! It is a Rose Quartz Essence, particularly beneficial for opening the heart up to love, compassion, happiness and forgiveness. It also helps to balance your emotions, and bring inner peace and harmony. Try making your own gem essences and share your experience with us!

    Hello I have a doubt after I make the elixir I should put it in a glass bottle or a plastic bottle ?

      Definitely a glass bottle! You should always use glass bottles instead of plastic if possible!
