“Crystals have been used for centuries to promote serenity and as a tool for meditation. They can be helpful allies in our quest for calm.”― Amy Leigh Mercree
Hi and welcome to Wicca Now! This week I’ve been talking about crystals, like these posts on how to cleanse your crystals, which crystals are good for anxiety and a post all about healing crystals. Today I thought we’d continue on this path and explore how to make crystal infused water.
We must share the standard disclaimer that we are not a doctors and cannot give out medical advice. Crystals for healing should be used only as a compliment to other therapies and not as a replacement for regular medical care and or medication. Please always consult a medical professional.
What Is A Crystal Infused Water?
Crystal infused water, also called gem water is simply water that has been infused with the vibrational frequency of a specific crystal. The water is often charged with moon or sunlight and is thought to promote certain health benefits. I’ve also found crystal infused water to be a great way of connecting directly with the vibration of the crystal.
Making crystal infused waters is a fun, witchy weekend activity and a bonus, you’ll eventually have a pretty line up of hand labelled bottles to decorate your altar or bathroom cabinet with.
How To Use Crystal Infused Water
Crystal infused water can be used in a number of different ways. You can place a few drops onto your wrists or pulse points, place a couple of drops undiluted under the tongue, add a few drops to your bathwater or lace your drinking water with a few drops. I love to have spray bottles with different crystal infused waters in my bag which I use to mist my face with. For example, I have one bottle with contains a crystal infused water I made with amethyst.
When I’m feeling like I want to connect with my heart chakra, I spray a little of the water directly onto my skin and visualise it surrounding me in a mist of loving energy. I do the same with a bottle of jasper crystal infused water which I use when I feel like I need an extra layer of protection.
Because facial sprays and mists are so common now, no one bats an eyelid when I do this. In fact, friends and colleagues often ask for a spritz too lol.
How To Make Crystal Infused Water
You will need:
- A small bowl
- A desired cleansed crystal (make sure that the crystal you use can be placed in water! Some crystals will disintegrate if they come into contact with water)
- Water (I prefer mineral water which I bless and thank before using)
- A dark glass or spray bottle
- Labels for your bottles
1 – Pick a light source with which you will charge your infusion. Remedies made using sunlight will need a minimum of 3 hours to infuse. Remedies made with moonlight should be done on a new or full moon. (please note that some crystals do not tolerate direct sunlight if you are unsure work with moonlight which is safe for all crystals)
2 – Charge the crystal – Position it within the bowl and cover it with the mineral or spring water. Place the bowl so that it catches the sun or moons light. Leave until sunrise if using moonlight or for 3 hours if using sunlight.
3 – Bottle the water – decant into your glass bottle of choice. You can place the actual crystal used into the jar to make it more potent if you like.
4 – Label your infusion – Label your water noting the intention you used, when it was made, the crystal used and whether you worked with moon or sunlight. Note also what the remedy is for. You can store the crystal-infused water in a dark place for a number of years if you made sure that the equipment used was sterile.
Note: If you are unsure about whether your crystal can be placed in water, I also have another recipe for crystal-infused water which doesn’t require the crystal to be in contact with water at all.
Note also: for emotional, spiritual and psychic remedies it is more beneficial to charge with moonlight, for physical remedies sunlight charging is best.
