Crystal-derived tinctures, also known as gem elixirs or crystal essences, are a fascinating blend of the mineral kingdom and herbalism. This blog post delves into the process of making tinctures using crystal-derived ingredients and discusses the various menstruums available for extraction.

Crystal-Derived Ingredients: Illuminating Gems

Crystal tinctures have found their place in vibrational medicine, homeopathy, and holistic wellness practices. Here are some popular crystals used in tincture preparations:

  1. Clear Quartz: Known as the 'master healer,' clear quartz is thought to amplify energy and thought, aiding concentration and memory.
  2. Amethyst: Believed to promote calm, balance, and peace, amethyst is often used for its reputed soothing effects.
  3. Rose Quartz: Symbolizing love and harmony, rose quartz is said to open the heart to promote love and self-love.
  4. Citrine: Known for promoting abundance and prosperity, citrine is used in tinctures intended to stimulate creativity and clarity.

Exploring the Menstruums

Menstruums play a vital role in tincture making, serving as solvents that extract the vibrational energy of the crystals. The most commonly used menstruums include water, oil, glycerin, and food-grade alcohol.

  1. Water: Pure spring water is often used in crystal tinctures. Some practitioners believe that water can be 'programmed' with the crystal's energy.
  2. Oil: While not as common in crystal tinctures, oils can be used as carriers for crystal energy in topical applications.
  3. Glycerin: A non-alcoholic option, glycerin is a sweet-tasting solvent used in tinctures when alcohol is not preferred.
  4. Food Grade Alcohol: A potent solvent, food-grade alcohol is often preferred for its ability to extract and preserve the vibrational energy of crystals effectively. 200 Proof Food Grade Alcohol ensures maximum extraction and a long shelf life.

Remember to cleanse and energize your crystals before use, and always double-check the safety of the crystals you choose, as some can release toxic substances into the menstruum. Crystal-derived tinctures offer an intriguing way to incorporate the subtle energy of the mineral kingdom into your holistic wellness routine.
