How to make

Most Gem elixirs are made by placing the cleaned stone or stones chosen in a clear glass or crystal container with pure water and placing this in sunlight for several hours. Two to four hours is common, though on a very bright sunny day at noon, full charging can occur in as little as half an hour, and on overcast or cloudy days it can take much longer.

Some people keep the gemstones in the water for a minimum of an entire day (24 hours), and some people take a week to a fortnight to make an elixir, spending some time each day to mentally reinforce the intention. Conventionally made elixirs are made
outside on bright sunny days. Very cloudy days are not always suitable for making most gem elixirs.

The time of day does not seem to be a critical factor in the making of  gem elixirs but they are often made in the morning or at noon.

It is important to minimize your direct physical contact with the stones and water in order to keep the crystal energy from absorbing your own energy and effecting the elixir. You may wish to place and remove your stones with a spoon and you should always have a calm and focused emotional state while making elixirs, because strong emotions can effect the elixir.

There is no set requirement for the type of the container but is should be an undecorated clear glass bowl, whether it be cut glass or waterford type crystal. After the water has been charged by the gemstone, it is filtered and usually preserved with alcohol or vinegar.

To preserve an elixir, fill a container halfway with your essence and fill
the rest of the bottle with brandy or vodka or with vinegar or with half vinegar
or alcohol and pure water.

The alcohol is used to inhibit bacterial growth and may also help to " fix" the vibration. If you intend to expand your elixir, as is done with flower essences, this would be your mother essence and you would make stock bottles by placing from three to twenty drops of mother essence in an ounce of distilled, spring or other pure water and an ounce of brandy, vodka or vinegar.

This stock essence is then used to make a dosage bottle by again adding ten to twenty drops of the stock essence to two ounces of the water and brandy mixture. This would then be the elixir or essence which you  would use for treatment. The amount of water and the proportion of alcohol used as a reservative does vary somewhat among different recipes. Dark glass bottles are preferred for storing elixirs. Label your elixirs with the gem or gems used the date made, and whether it is a mother, stock or dosage bottle.

Gem elixirs are often used undiluted rather than being expanded either by drinking glasses of the charged water, or by placing two to five drops of the elixir in a glass of water or under the tongue two to four times a day. They can also be used topically on the skin or put in bath water. You can add them to sprays that you use for room or aura clearing.

Some stones should not be used to make conventional gem elixirs. Do not make a conventional elixir from any stone containing known toxins. These include but are not limited to, Copper, which would include azurite and Malachite. Orpiment is arsenic and Cinnabar contains Mercury for example.

One should always exercise extreme caution about other elixirs too, as not all books contain complete information about the physical toxins in stones. There are some books in publications which contain good information. But it always pays to check with more than one source. "Love is in the Earth" by  Melody does have some mention of whether or not a stone can be used to make conventional elixirs.

It might be possible to do some real damage with elixirs made in the conventional way from some kinds of stones. Soaking the stones in water can cause the leaching of toxic components into the water.

There are also some stones which are not suitable for soaking in water, alternative methods are then to be used to make elixirs. These methods include: placing the stone
in a smaller container which is placed in the larger container of water, and placing stones around the container being charged. These are often used in combination. Some sources recommend that you have at least six stones of the same type to place around the container, others use quartz points to amplify and direct the energy of the stone you are making an elixir with into the water.

Another way to make an elixir is to hold a charged stone against the side of a glass of water and intend the crystal charge the water with its energy.This is most effective if you are skilled at focusing your intention, but is not usually as long lasting as using a conventional method, and may be more suitable for making a single glass of charged water to be used within a short time.

Many people just like to keep a quartz or amethyst crystal in the water they drink or water plants with even without further charging, this seems to improve the taste and energy of the water.

When making gem elixirs, most people select the stone or stones that are used  for the issue they want to work on, but it is advisable to meditate first to receive guidance and permission from the stone spirit as to the uses of a particular elixir, or for guidance. These may not always be limited to those uses found in lists of crystal properties. Most people use gem elixirs undiluted or unexpanded, though flower essences are virtually always expanded. The dosage used is usually ten drops twice a day for a month. If need be, repeat the  dosage more frequently, for example, five drops four times a day.

Adding the vibrations from Tuning Forks

There are so many wonderful ways to incorporate tuning forks in the making of elixirs, as well as, in creating intentions and healing for drinking water and bath water.

All this information and more will be available in the upcoming book, Tuning Fork Therapy® Using Tuning Forks to make a Gemstone Elixir.

One example would be for those who are feeling desolate and/or despair.

     The gemstone used for this person would be Amber

     The tuning fork used would be the 'E' tuning fork

     The stone would be placed on the Third Chakra


You would place the Amber elixir as listed above but you add the following step:

    Activate the 'E' tuning fork and place the vibrating tip of the 'E' tuning fork directly on, or slightly above, the glass jar that contains the amber elixir. Do this for a total of three repetitions. When finished, wave the vibrating 'E' tuning fork all around the elixir in the jar.

    Now, place the amber gemstone directly on the Third Chakra of the person in need. Activate the 'E' tuning fork and place the vibrating tuning fork directly on, or slightly above, the gemstone and hold there for 20 seconds. Repeat for a total of three repetitions.

    Perform the Spiral Technique as listed in the Tuning Fork Therapy® Level One manual and after three repetitions, perform the Horizontal Technique for three repetitions.

    When finished, activate the OM tuning fork and pass it over the body as described in the Tuning Fork Therapy® level one manual for closing the session.

    You can now pour some of the amber elixir in a bath tub and have the client soak in the water every night until they feel their spirits lift and their fears disolve. Repeat the Tuning Fork Therapy® session as needed throughout the week. There is no hard and fast rule for this, but the client should be feeling better by the third session. 


Discover the many, many elixirs available for you to make, along with my own personal methods of making a safe elixir which is slightly different than the method listed to the right.
