One of the many uses and benefits of crystals is the ability to make crystal-infused water, often known as an elixir. Today, we'll go over how to safely add natural crystals and gemstones to your water to maximize their therapeutic effects.
It is important to keep in mind that not all crystals can be used in water. Some minerals will dissolve in water because they may be porous or contain harmful substances that, when coupled with water, should not be ingested.
What Crystals Can Go in Water
- Clear Quartz
- Rose Quartz
- Obsidian (avoid extremely hot or cold temperatures)
These are some excellent places to start if you want to add crystal healing powers to your water. Keep in mind to routinely clean your stones, especially if you use them frequently.
What Crystals Should Not Go in Water
- Lapis Lazuli
While these crystals are beautiful and have many healing properties, they should not be placed in water. Selenite and lapis lazuli will dissolve, turquoise and jade can leach metals into the water, and fluorite may release harmful chemicals when exposed to water. If you’re looking to use these crystals in water, you can try using the indirect crystal infusion method. This involves putting the crystals close to your water rather than being submerged under water.
Indirect crystal elixirs are a great way to get the benefits of crystal healing without damaging the crystals or exposing yourself to harmful chemicals. Indirect crystal elixirs are still very effective and can be just as powerful as direct crystal elixirs. If you’re unsure about whether or not a crystal is safe to put in water, it’s always best to avoid direct crystal infusion.
What Is the Best Way to Infuse Your Water With Crystals?
Shiva's Stone Crystal Water Bottles are an engaging way to stay hydrated throughout the day while keeping your crystals close to you at all times! All of the crystals which we offer in the direct-infusion style (wand point flasks) are water-safe.
We also offer two crystal bottle styles which separate the crystals from the water using a glass barrier (infusion flasks -bamboo flasks - zodiac crystal water bottles - special crystal blend bottle). This indirect infusion method ensures that you can realize the benefits of your favourite crystals, including those which should not be in contact with water as mentioned above.
(Many of our competitors neglect to understand this and continue selling products which are unsafe to use. Please do your due diligence to learn more about safe crystal infusion practices.)
