A crystal elixir is water that has been infused with the healing properties of your stones. You can make your drinking water even more powerful by infusing them with crystals. Crystal elixirs have many benefits including emotional healing, energetic assistance, a higher vibration, and energetic cleansing.
There’s two methods to make crystal elixirs: direct and indirect.
The Direct Method
In the direct method, you can add clean crystals directly to your drinking water. To do this, simply place them right into the bottom of your glass or water bottle and let the water absorb their healing frequencies for at least 12-24 hours.
Not all crystals should be absorbed in water or are safe to “drink”. For example, there are some crystals that may erode in water or emit minerals that aren’t safe for consumption. You can perform a quick search on the internet to make sure that any crystals you put directly into water are safe for you to do so. Here's one website that I like to use to check for water safe crystals.
The Indirect Method
The second way to make a crystal elixir is indirectly. This is the safest way to make crystal elixirs as the crystals never directly touch the water that you drink.
To use the indirect method, you take your bottle of drinking water and place it in a bowl. Then you fill the bowl with additional water and the crystals of your choice. Allow this elixir to set on your counter for at least 12 hours before drinking the water from the bottle. Gently remove your crystals and discard the water from the bowl or pour it into your plants.
The crystal water in your bowl will automatically be absorbed by your glass of drinking water. So, you will still get the same healing benefits without the crystals directly touching the water that you drink.
Rose Quartz Crystals
Below is a simple gem elixir recipe that uses rose quartz crystals. Rose quartz encourages compassion and unconditional love. It is an excellent heart and emotion healer. This stone will help to attune you to the frequencies of Divine love, non-judgement, and acceptance. Rose quartz also assists in cleansing denser emotions, such as anger, jealousy, resentment, and fear. It's the perfect beginner stone to work with for those who are new to crystals and/or elixirs.
Please note that if you've not done so already, you want to clear, program, and charge your crystals before using them for the first time. I also have a 4-piece rose quartz heart set available in my online store that would be perfect to use for this recipe. This set also comes with a recipe card for this exact elixir!
Crystal Elixir for Energy Clearing
This is a great recipe for beginners because Rose Quartz emits a soft, nurturing frequency that is gentle, yet effective on the Soul and body. I recommend you start by drinking 8 oz. of this elixir a day, and then you can add more as tolerated.

Bottle or jar with a lid
Gently clean your crystal(s) under warm running water. If desired, you can use a small amount of dish soap or non-toxic cleaner. Rinse thoroughly.
Carefully place your crystals in the bottom of your water bottle and top with fresh, distilled, drinking water. Be sure to cover with a lid.
Next, you should program the water and the crystals with a prayer or intention for healing and clearing (see below). It is a good idea to also bless your water before consuming it.
Allow the crystals to infuse the water with their energy for at least 12 hours before consuming. You can also set your crystal elixir outside or next to a window so that it gets charged by the Sun and the Moon during this process.
Consciously enjoy and savor your high-vibe, healing water!
IntentionS for ElixirS
Blessed or holy water is simply water that’s been prayed over. Both water and crystals are easily programmable, meaning that you can infuse them with intentions and prayers for healing and assistance.
There's no wrong way to bless your water and crystals, as long as your intention comes from your heart. But, if you're new to this, you can use this sample intention:
I invite the highest vibrational light to purify and bless this water. To amplify it with the highest light. To fully nourish and heal my body in the highest possible way. May what I need from it be absorbed and all that is not for my highest Divine alignment simply pass right through me. I thank you. I love you. I bless you. So, it is.
Simply making the elixir without any care or concern isn't going to be very potent. Just like everything we do in life, we want to approach elixir making with mindfulness and intention so that we can get the most out of this amazing recipe.
