What is an Elixir and how do I make one?
An Elixir is a vibrational remedy. Crystals vibrate at specific rates, by placing a crystal in a glass/bowl of water, the water thereby takes on and holds the vibration of the crystal. You may use elixirs as a salve, add a few drops to your bath, and in most cases can be taken internally. Elixirs are very cost effective as the size of the crystal is not that important.
Start with a clean drinking glass or glass bowl with no patterns on it (do not use plastic) fill it with either purified or distilled water (not mineral water) tap water will suffice if neither are available. Get your crystal (must be natural, not cut and polished or tumbled) and put it in the water for a minimum of 4 hours (no real maximum time) Once it is ready, you may put it into a small glass eye dropper bottle for easy storage and portability. You may also use a 50% mix of vegetable glycerin or brandy to preserve it.
To use, shake the bottle and squirt on eye dropper into mouth and hold for long as possible before swallowing. Do this 3 times a day. Alternatively, You can use it directly as a salve to the skin, even use them in place of crystals in body layouts.
I highly recommend the book Gem Elixirs and Vibrational Healing vol. 1 by Gurudas for further detailed information.
