There are many crystals which you an use to make elixirs with but you do have to be careful as some crystals are HIGHLY TOXIC. Some contain lead and mercury and I'm sure you all know just how toxic they can be. So you MUST be sure the crystal you are using is not one of the toxic ones if you are going to use the water method in making your elixir. For toxic crystals there is a non-water method which you can use.
The quartz family of crystals are sufficiently hard and non-toxic and has such a huge variety you are bound to find one for your purpose amongst the quartz crystals.
You can make an elixir for ailments and you can either drink it or even apply it to your skin. It is normally made with spring, distilled or filtered water. If you want the elixir to last more than a week then some brandy or other alcohol added to the water acts as a preservative.
Crystal elixirs are particularly good for controlling asthma, especially exercise-induced asthma. As you probably know, when working out, whether in a gym or at home, it is vital to drink lots of water during this time and by adding a few drops of an elixir to your water which has been made with crystals for healing asthma AND for energy, this not only gives you more strength and stamina during the work out, but helps to ward off asthma which is brought on by your exercise.
Please remember that, just as some people are not able to take regular medication given by their GP due to allergies etc, the same can apply to crystals. But, obviously, you don't know what you may have a reaction to until you try it. If you make an elixir and find you get symptoms which you've not had before and cannot pinpoint the cause, give the elixirs a rest, then retry them. If you find your symptoms stop when you stop using the elixir and return when you start using it again STOP it immediately. What works for one person may not work for another. It's trial and error as with most general medications.
How to make an Elixir
1. Place a clean crystal in the bottom of an undecorated, plain glass bowl. Add spring, distilled or filtered water until it just covers the crystal.
2. Place the bowl in full sunlight, a window sill or even outside, for at least 2 hours.
3. Afterwards carefully pour the water into a storage bottle that contains at least 50% brandy or vodka to act as a preservative. If a dropper bottle is used (which is the best kind to use) drops can be taken as necessary. This is known as the 'Mother Essence'.
4. Put between 3 and 7 drops of a mother essence into a clean dropper bottle containing 50% water 50% brandy.
This is called the "Stock Bottle".
5. If several essences are being combined, you can make one further dilution of a few drops from the Stock Bottle with 50/50 water and brandy.
This is called a 'Dosage Bottle'.
If necessary, alcohol can be replaced by cider vinegar as a preservative if alcohol is not desirable. (Go with the alcohol! lol lol)
