Hibiscus Gem Elixir Iced Tea for Immune Boosting & Energy!

Hibiscus Moon Gem Elixirs 7 Comments

Let’s brew up some Hibiscus Vitamin C Immune Boosting Gem Elixir Iced Tea!

Click to watch my video here…

I was making some Hibiscus Gem Elixir Iced Tea and I knew I had to film it & share it with all of you!

Although it looks like Kool-Aid, this drink is bright red due to a lot of dried hibiscus flowers.

I get my hibiscus flowers and many of the ingredients I used here from Earth Shift Products.

This isn’t a product endorsement or anything like that.  In the video above I show you different brands for different things included in this recipe…but a lot of my stuff I do get from Earth Shift because they follow many of the same philosophies as I do.  I always prefer Fair Trade & Organic & they strive for that too.
Iced Tea Super Powers?
Vitamin C:  This tea is rich in Vitamin C.  Super high vitamin C, so that is where the immune boosting is coming from, from those hibiscus flowers.

Gem Elixir: We’re also adding a gem elixir, particularly a citrine gem elixir in this tea for good mood & feel good energy. I’ve got that going in my tea-to-go glass thermos that you guys are always asking me about (and I will tell you more about in the video).

Mood Booster:  Besides immune boosting, this Iced Tea is a good mood booster. 🙂 If you’re dealing with depression, or you happen to know anybody dealing with depression…or if you just have the blah’s or the blues, this is a great tea to drink for that.

Hibiscus Gem Elixir Iced Tea Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons of dried Hibiscus Flowers.
  • 2 tablespoons of powdered ginger
  • 8 drops of magnesium concentrate w/ trace minerals
  • 4 tablespoons of silica gel
  • 1 pitcher full of citrine gem elixir or about 8 cups of water
  • 1 or 2 citrine or quartz crystals
  • 2 organic lemons
  • healthy sweetener to taste (raw organic honey or agave)
  • Some sort of strainer

*Credit Given:  I modified this recipe from a recipe from Earth Shift’s products, on their website and I changed it around a bit to make it my own.*
Magnesium
The Magnesium Concentrate is not something you’re just going to find everywhere. Again, I get mine here.

This adds more minerals to the tea, especially if you have non-mineralized water.  A lot of people who have reverse osmosis water systems, that don’t re-mineralize the water…that is not living water so you want to re-mineralize it.  Or if you drink distilled water (which is better than tap water) this is a good option to re-mineralize your water.

We need magnesium in a form that we can assimilate and take in. You might take magnesium supplements,  but this is even better than taking magnesium supplements because it is prepared in a way that is readily available & absorbable by your body!
Silica
Silica is the same thing as a liquified quartz crystal; silicon dioxide. Yep, drinking our crystals. 😉  Research has found that many of us suffer from silica deficiencies! I usually take one tablespoon of silica per day.  It’s really great for:

  • re-energizing
  • re-mineralizing
  • cartilage & support for joint protection
  • connective tissues
  • hair
  • skin
  • nails
  • + restructuring your cell walls because those are partly made of silica

A couple of things you might notice in the video…I have some stickers that say different things on my bottle & my water pitcher which is for restructuring and energizing the water with the vibration frequencies of what I want from this, what I’m manifesting or intending to bring about.

My thermos says “awake and ready”.  This is a la Dr. Emoto.  If you follow his teachings, the late Dr. Emoto taught about restructuring and energizing your water with messages.  On the pitcher it says “positive”, “energetic”, “enthusiastic”.  Here’s an option that’s similar to the ones I used.
Returning to the tea making festivities:
So the water’s in the pitcher.  Then I put in the hibiscus flowers and you’ll notice those will start to color the water right away.  It starts to get really nice and pink then bright red. You want the flowers to steep in there for at least 15 minutes. Longer if you like.

Then you’ll strain the flowers out.  (You can use them again for something else: to make a hot tea, or some people make cookies or at the very least, you can compost them.)

Once you take the hibiscus flowers out then you can add in all the other ingredients and put it in the refrigerator.  Or go ahead and fill a glass with ice and pour it right over. Ready to drink & heal!

***NOTE: When you put the ginger in, it does cloud up a little bit.  You can also put fresh ginger in, it doesn’t need to be the powdered kind but if you want it to really mix in there, I like to use the powder for that.***

It’s really nice & refreshing.  It’s GORGEOUS, yummy + it’s  fun.

Let me know if you try it, I can’t wait to see what yours looks like (tag me on Instagram with #hibiscusmoon). I’d love to hear how you like it and if you get the energy + immune boosting effects from it and all of that. Tell me in the comments below!

Easy Gem Elixir! + Magical Mermaid Crystal Tea

Hibiscus Moon Gem Elixirs, mermaids 13 Comments

I decided to make this video b/c how I do gem elixirs has become HOT Crystal Topic as of late (lots questions coming in for this):

How to make a super-easy gem elixir to tote along with you…

Many of you have been asking me for more details on how I make my easy-peasy drinkable gem elixirs & the NEW water bottle I so enjoy using to do this.

I used to recommend other bottles & gadgets with more elaborate designs (some were drop-dead-plop-your-whole-paycheck-down-gorgeous) & definitely more beautiful to look at…but if you know me, I’m Ms. Practical.

So after using those other options for a while I let them keep falling away as, either I discovered something I didn’t like about them…OR I discovered more practical options that could better fit into my every day life. 😉

So as I explain in my above video, I simply choose a NON-TOXIC stone I want to work with (preferably one with a Mohs Hardness of 5 or more so it doesn’t slowly dissolve in the water) & plop it into the water in my new handy water bottle.

That’s it!

This is the water bottle I’ve been using as of late:

I then take the water I’ve infused the crystal energy  from my water bottle and use it for all sorts of other concoctions…like this Magical Mermaid Tea! Don’t you want to make some??? Come on. You know you wanna dazzle up your day mermaid style. It’s easy!

Magical Mermaid Tea Recipe
Ingredients

  • dried organic hibiscus flowers…of course!
  • dried organic rosehips
  • dried organic pineapple chunks
  • dried organic coconut
  • 1-2 drops natural organic vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. organic extra virgin coconut oil (keep stirring as you drink to keep it blended in)
  • all steeped in blue lace agate gem elixir water (made as shown above then heated in tea kettle)
  • Optional: Mermaid Mug from Weeki Wachee Springs in FL!
  • Optional: Blue Lace Agate Tea Infuser from this wonderful Etsy Shop 🙂

More Gem Elixir Resources

  • The water system I use to filter all our drinking water through is the Pristine Hydro System & I have more info on that here along with a scientific experiment I conducted on the effects of crystals + Pristine Hydro water on plant growth. Oh yes! 

If you have other tips & tricks for working with gem elixirs that make it super easy…and FUN, please share in the comments below! I’d love to hear about it. And so would our entire Crystal Hottie Community!

Oceans of Crystal Blessings,

Crystal Energy Experiment: SEE the PROOF for yourself!

Hibiscus Moon Gem Elixirs, science, Videos 26 Comments

It’s Experiment Time! 

You know how I love to share science with you! And being a former science teacher, I really get into experiments!

Plus many of you are always asking for proof of the crystal energy I always speak of.

So, I want to show you the results of a crystal energy experiment using the Scientific Method that I recently spent some time doing…and that you can replicate for yourself (hallmark of a good sound scientific experiment!)

What we have going on in this experiment is some kitty grass that I grow for Topaz (my crystal-lovin’ kitty!). This is the seed I like to use for her (chemical-free & non-GMO, thank you very much.)

 

I wanted to see the effects of growing the kitty grass with crystals as well as with Pristine Hydro water would have on the plants.

Just to explain a bit about the Pristine Hydro water, it’s basically mega-amplified gem elixir water on tap with all the benefits of being living water restored to its more natural & ultimate healthy state. (We use a pristine hydro water system for our all drinking & cooking water. PristineHydro water is  basically Gem Elixir water on tap that establishes the proper pH, takes out all the impurities, even completely gets rid of the chlorine and fluoride in the water which is difficult to do. In addition, it vortexes the now healthy water around crystals that I’ve personally selected to be added to my system. Our drinking water is extremely important to me & to have it charged with crystals too is just icing on the cake! You can find out more about it in my blog post here.)

Experiment Set Up
I tested the effects of sprouting the seeds & growing the grass in 4 separate containers, careful to change only 1 variable in each; all other components remained the same; same container, location, amount of water, soil, sunlight, etc. These are called the constants. Humor me while I go back to my science teaching days! 😉

Any scientist will tell you when conducting an experiment, accurate record keeping, openness & replication are very important to maintain  credibility. And I’m all about that! Especially this being a crystal healing experiment, I wanted to be sure to follow all “the rules”. Know what I mean?

I had 4 different “trials” going:

  • 1st container: plain tap water only (this one acted as the Control in the experiment)
  • 2nd container: plain tap water + crystals
  • 3rd container: PristineHydro water (no crystals)
  • 4th container: PristineHydro water + crystals (in other words…the Crystal Bomb-Diggity!)

As a valid empirical experiment should have, I included a control as 1 of the trials; meaning that no variables have been applied to that one. It’s just been watered with plain ole’ tap water & no crystals included at all so we can use it to compare the others to.

All 4 trails have been treated the same way; the constants:

  • all kept in the same tray
  • I rotated them every day @ the same time of day
  • seeds were sprouted in the same location, receiving same amount of sun
  • same kind of seeds, and same kind of soil, same kind of container…you get the idea

The Results
You may have noticed the container watered with plain tap water and grown with crystals only, no special water other than plain tap…there was a clear difference in the vitality of the grass blades along with the height, thickness and strength of it (photo below).

On the next trail; the 1 with no crystals, but watered with PristineHydro water (photo below), you’ll note that the grass was much more lush & grew so long it was spilling out onto the ground, yet the blades not as strong-looking as the previous trial.

But the final trial had the best vitality, the best growth; the kitty grass is just flourishing, absolutely thriving; thick, lush, strong & vital. This trial had it all; with the powerful crystals + PristineHydro water Combo! Look for yourself (photo below). It’s going OFF!

So imagine what’s going on within the electromagnetic frequencies  & the very cells of these plants.
Stem Cell Biologist, Dr. Bruce Lipton says “cells are programmable…dynamically linked to information from the environment, which is downloaded into the cell.”
We are made of trillions of cells transmitting & receiving energy. Imagine if you were immersing your own frequencies & cells in the same sort of crystal-infused environment. What if you’re drinking powerful gem elixir water, one similar to the PristineHydro water…and if you were bathing your environment with crystals & using Gem Elixirs regularly, keeping crystals in & around your body within your electromagnetic field.

This is what I love/live to teach about!

Just think….what could be going on with your cells if they were immersed in such an enviroment?

Want to try it?
I’ve done this experiment a couple of times and I encourage you to do it. Try it yourself!! That’s the best way to know and see.

When you first start to sprout the seeds they’ll all look the same. It looks like nothing’s happening.

They will sprout & grow just as well with just as much vitality with regular tap water and no crystals as the other ones do. So you won’t see a difference.

BUT THEN…it’s when they start to grow that you see a difference in their vitality and how they thrive!

Are you gonna dive in & give this experiment a go?  Please tell me what you think in the comments below. I’d love to hear your results, thoughts + experiences so we can share with our #CrystalHottie community.

The Art of Merging Botanicals, Gem Elixirs and Crystals

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Goodness, Crystal Healer, Crystal Healing, Gem Elixirs, interview 6 Comments

Hi Crystal Hottie!

I have another special treat for you today: another Crystal Healer Interview. Yay, right?

Personally, it really stokes my passion for crystals to hear from others who are out there “boots on the ground” making a difference for themselves & others through the power of crystals. 🙂

And I’m so grateful that I have so many lovely Hibiscus Moon Certified Crystal Healers who’ve decided to generously share their journey with us all here on my blog.

Weeeee, I’m really fired up to introduce you to Hibiscus Moon Advanced Crystal Master Ina Rosales, aka Ina the Herbal Contessa. Ina has also helped us in the past as a Crystal Content Manager for my courses…she’s got super-natural abilities to catch every little detail & make sure it’s all consistent. That’s just 1 of her many super-powers. She’s also a Gem Elixir Guru.

It’s a true honor to share her here with you…

Isn’t she freakin’ ADORABLE?!

Ina shares with us the art of merging botanicals with crystals. Serious YUM!

All set? Here’s Ina’s interview…

♥♥♥
What brought you to the world of Crystal Healing?
I have always felt a deep connection with nature.

In my early 20’s I had a small organic farm where I sold herbs, flowers and vegetables at my local Farmers’ Market. It was a natural progression to merge the botanicals with the crystals.

I believe in:
“Sacrednicities”; the belief that the universe is conspiring on my behalf to shower me with Blessings
…and that is how I was guided to Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy.

The rest is crystal-history!

What do others in your life think about the path you are on?
I’m very lucky to have such tremendous support from both my friends and family. I believe more and more people are seeing and experiencing the healing energies of crystals and they are becoming more open to the idea.
What do you love most about working with crystals?
I love how simple yet so profound the results can be working with these beauties from the earth.

They are gentle enough to use everyday and I love to use and see the results on my pets, too.

I adopted a disabled, senior poodle with a neurological disorder that makes her spin. I gave her a Crystal Chakra Balance session that she absolutely loved.

It was the most calm and relaxed that I’ve ever seen her!  I used the following crystals:

  • Clear Quartz
  • Amethyst
  • Blue Lace Agate
  • Rose Quartz
  • Citrine
  • Carnelian
  • Black Tourmaline
  • Hematite

What 3 energy-work or spirituality books are you loving right now?
Flower Essences and Vibrational Healing by Gurudas. I purchased this book about 20 years ago. It never gets old and I love to reread this treasure.

Another great find from 15 years ago that I’m rereading is Aromatherapy and Subtle Energy Techniques by Joni Keim Loughram and Ruah Bull.

…and The Language of Plants- A Guide to the Doctrine of Signatures by Julia Graves.  “This book is an eye-opener, showing us with many examples how to see plants in their entirety, and thus to know their essence.”

What is your go-to crystal for grounding?
I have always loved Hematite (non-magnetic).

After taking Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy course and learning that Hematite is not only rich in the element (Fe) Iron (an element that I’ve always been fascinated with) but Hematite helps to entrain us back to our natural Dominant Oscillary Rate (DOR) which makes it a great grounding tool to balance the Root Chakra.

I feel less dizzy and more calm and balanced when I use Hematite.

Here are some vibrant gem-infused gem elixir (& other sparkly stuffs) recipes from Ina:

When using healing botanicals and crystals in this way, our energy is infused by, and merges with, their energy.
