Crystal and Gemstone Elixirs for External Use Only

One of the most powerful ways of absorbing crystal vibrations is by the use of gem remedies, or elixers. Purpose made ones can be bought, but you can make your own. Vibrational Medicines Because crystals have such powerful vibrations they are ideal for making an energy medicine that works on the body, mind, emotions, and spirit. Water takes on the vibrational pattern of a substance placed within it, then passes it by absorbing it through the skin. Using Gem Elixirs You can use gem elixirs by rubbing it on the skin, or simply by adding it to your bath. You can make it, and store it up to a week in the refrigerator, and is always best, when freshly made. You can use most tumbled stones, with the exception of malachite.

Malachite is a toxic crystal. And should NEVER EVER be used internally or externally.

Other stones such as kyanite, and other un-tumbled stones should not be used as they can fall apart and break away when wet.

(disclaimer by MizzMo: I do NOT recommend using gem elixers for internal use at all)

Making the Elixir You can use 50% brandy or vodka as a preservative, this will keep the elixir active much longer. Then add the other 50% as water. Using darker colored bottles is best, but clear works fine too. Always cleanse your stones before you use them in the elixir. Find the crystal that you wish to use for the treatment you have in mind. Pour fresh spring water, or bottled water into a bowl. Do not use tap water as most water facilities add chlorine to the drinking water. Place your desired tumbled stone in the bowl and place in sunlight for at least 12 hours. Remove stone before packaging. Then put the elixir in an preferably dark glass bottle, add the vodka or brandy if you wish to keep longer than a week. Use an airtight stopper to seal. Store the elixir in a cold, dark area, or refrigerate, label it with the date prepared, and what its intention is for.
You can use these and add to your bath water, and you can make smaller dosage bottle for gifts.

This is a list of crystals which are NOT suited for elixirs etc.
Before you put any stone in contact with skin or gem elixir you should make sure that it is safe to do so. This is only a few of the stones that should not be used on your skin and never ever ingested . Many of these are copper-containing minerals (copper is toxic to our bodies), but there are also others for instance, rocks that contain Lead or Arsenic, Cadmium, Aluminum, Barium or Mercury. (There are a lot of other stones and substances that should not be put in water to drink these are just some of them (not kidding!)).

Amazonite - use with caution, the color is a result of traces of copper, which is toxic)
Atacamite - poisonous (copper)
Auricalcite - Poisonous (zinc and copper)
Azurite - poisonous (copper)
Boji-stones - unfit - (contains some sulphur) There is some secrecy re it's contents - which means you really should not drink it. (Would you take a pill you did not know the contents of?)
Bronchantite - unfit and poisonous (copper)

Chalcantite- (AKA "blue @#%$") - poisonous (copper)
Chalcopyrite- (peacock stone) - poisonous (copper and sulphur)
Cinnabar - poisonous (mercury/quicksilver)
Conicalcite - poisonous (copper)
Copper - poisonous
Crysocolla- (AKA Venus-stone) - poisonous (copper)
Cuprite - poisonous (copper)

Dioptase - poisonous (copper)

Gem Silica - poisonous (copper)
Galena/ Galenite - poisonous (almost 90 percent lead),
Garnierite- (AKA Genthite/ Falcondoite) - Contains nickel

Halite - will dissolve in water,
Hematite - will rust

Lapis Lazuli - poisonous (the pyrite inclusions, that is.)

Magnetite - unfit (Iron, will rust)
Malachite : For those trying too hard to control their reality. Helps in grounding, helps align and harmonize the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels of our own being. ( Never soak this stone in water to make the elixir )
Markasite - poisonous (sulphur) (marcasite has the same chemical make-up as pyrite)
Mohawkite - poisonous (copper, ARSENIC etc.)(Keep away from children!)

Psiomelan - poisonous (barium)
Pyrite- (AKA fool's gold; Inca-gold) - poisonous (sulphur)

Realgar - poisonous (sulphur and ARSENIC) (Keep away from children!)

Stibnite- (has Lead)
Smithsonite (AKA Galmei/Zinc spar)- poisonous (zinc (may also contain copper))

Ulexite - The rock will lose its luster when in contact with water

Vanadanite - Poisonous (lead)

Wulfenite - Poisonous (lead and molybdenum)

The general rule is: Avoid making elixirs and massage oils of any stone/ mineral/ crystals containing any kind of metal (lead, copper etc.) Never Ever make or use gem elixirs for internal use. If you don't know the chemical make-up of the kind of rock you have - avoid any blue or green stone, because most of the blue and green stones get their color from its copper contents. (Especially the bright colored ones.) Also avoid any shiny, metal-like stone, because most metals are toxic to humans.

I may have to update that list for metalic stones, I don't see malachite on the list, and I know that one’s a no-no to use in an elixir. I've had this list since the old Shaman Sapience days.

This is great, Mizz! Thank you so much for this. You did mention that a person shouldn't ingest malachite up at the top of your article. A question - the two lists seem to be gems you can use externally. You noted on this first list that you could use these for bath and / or externally. The second list says - do not ingest these. Did I miss it or can you use some of those in the first, long list internally also? Ok - silliness, but I am sooo ready for a diamond and vodka cocktail - can I add some lime, and maybe tonic water? No, probably not the tonic water, huh. Thank you again

I believe the first list you can use internally, but I think what happened and why it’s not listed as such, is at the other board, it was felt that I shouldn't post them for internal use, so took that part out. Let’s see what the admin thinks about this. Lol, diamond vodka? That’s funny. I'm on ice water today, had toooo much fun yesterday.

Excellent Info Mizz. For anyone interested, just remember common-sense if you decide to take ANY gem essence or elixir internally. Many aren't suitable for internal use. Essences and Elixirs also work better with your energy especially on/around pulse points rather than trying to work through your body mass. Apply it as you would perfume or aftershave or put some on your fingers and "wave" it through your aura. You can also put it in a spray bottle and mist it over yourself.
