They can be used as a rub, taken under the tongue or turned into a spray that you can mist all over your home.
You can also tailor them to your needs—choosing crystals and essential oils that align with your purpose.
All you need is a few crystals and some water to get started.
We’ll show you how. Read on.
Please Note: Crystal sprays are fun to use for spiritual purposes but they are not a science-based treatment. They do not replace treatments of any kind. If you have health concerns, talk to your doctor or a relevant professional.
A crystal ticture or essence is basically water infused with a crystal. This helps impacts the benefits a crystal has.
The vibration and energy of crystals can pass through water. And when you spray or use that water, it can then be dispersed into the air, environment or your body.
You can make gem essence with just one crystals or a set of them.
You can use crystal tincture as is as a tincture or rub, or you can turn it into a spray, such as a spiritual protection spray.
What you use your crystal tincture for is up to you. When you make your spray, you set its purpose based on two things:
When you set your intention for an essence, you should aim to use a crystal that corresponds to that purpose. Your intention could be:
First, you need to set an intention for your spray. Then, pick at least one crystal that focuses on that area. For example, a calming spray would do well with amethyst, since it’s people know it for its anti-anxiety effects.
Decide whether you want to infuse one crystal, or a combination. Choosing a set of crystals could infuse different benefits into the spray. For example, you can add an orange stone to your amethyst spray to impart positivity and happiness into the calming effects.
Make sure that your crystals are cleansed and charged before you use them.
You know also know whether your crystal can be placed in water. The makeup of some stones can be damaged by water and some are toxic. Examples are Malachite, Selenite, Bornite and Halite. If you’re not sure, using a tumbled stone can be a safe bet or alternatively, use the indirect infusion method below.
You can use your crystal tincture as is or use it to make a spray (directions on that below). Make sure to choose crystals relevant to your purpose for the tincture or spray.
*Use this method only if the crystal you chose can be placed in water; not all crystals can be*
*Use this method if your crystal cannot be placed in water or if you’re unsure*
You can use your crystal essence in a variety of ways:
You can document your experience with your crystal essence sprays so you know how to improve them next time. For example, perhaps you find that adding one crystal is slightly more beneficial than another for a specific purpose. To do this, using a journal, record:
You can use your crystal essence to make a spiritual cleansing spray or chakra cleansing spray recipe. To do that, make sure you use crystals for protection when you make your essence.
Choose an essential oil relevant to your purpose for the spray. If you’re making a spiritual cleansing spray, use protection oils like Sage and Cedarwood. If you’re making a spray to balance emotions, you can try “happy” scents, like Orange and Grapefruit.
Alternatively, if you already used a protection crystal, you don’t need to add an essential oil to your spray for energy cleansing.
If you made a spiritual cleansing spray, you can spray it regularly to cleanse the energy of yourself and the environment around you. You can also spray it after someone negative leaves your home, or when you anticipate them arriving. In this way, it can be used as a chakra cleansing spray recipe.
The way that I do it is similar to the way I sage. I say a small prayer or intention phrase for cleansing in my head. I spritz the area of each room, making an X motion across doors and windows.
You can also spray around your body to cleanse your aura.
Many recipes for how to make spiritual cleansing sprays use essential oils. Although we recommend that too, it’s optional in our recipe, which focuses on crystals. First, make a gem essence using cleansing crystals and then turn it into a protection spray. You can also make crystal essence for other purposes, like spiritual awakening. Chakra cleansing spray recipes are often used to clear the energy of your own body or those around you.
