How to make a Gem Elixir - My Slice of Paradise
In addition to wearing gemstones, gemstone elixirs and essences are other ways that you can benefit from the powerful vibrations of gemstones. They are easy to make and can be used for all manner of circumstances. Apply them to your skin or spray them into a room, or even put them into your bath water.
There are two primary methods to make gem elixirs: One is the Direct Method in which the gemstone is immersed in the water; and the other is the Indirect Method, in which the gemstone is separated from the water by a barrier.
If you wish to keep your mother tincture longer than a week, it is best to preserve it. To do this, blend it with 50% brandy or vodka. Store the mixture in dark glass bottles and keep in a cool, dark place.
You can also make a dosage bottle, for immediate use. Fill a small dropper bottle with a 70-30 mixture of water and brandy. Add 7-10 drops of the mother tincture. Take 3-5 drops of the elixir several times a day.
