Super Blast Energizing Crystal Combo

Hibiscus Moon Crystals, Gem Elixirs, Videos 12 Comments

Let’s talk about a great Energizing Crystal Combo!

Here I’m sharing this perfect little energizing crystal combination b/c it seems like a lot of us, including myself, could use a boost of energy.  A nice little energy shot.

In fact, if you’re into crystals, (which you probably are right?!) you likely have these crystals readily accessible, Crystal Hottie…and if you don’t, you can get this combo pretty easily.
Super Blast Energizing Wake-up Call Combo
1.  Carnelian

Carnelian is bright orange, an invigorating color and very easy to find.

It’s in the quartz family & a safe stone to use, very common and relatively low-cost; an energizing crystal to work with.

I’ve got a whole luscious post about Carnelian (+ a FREE gift) over here!!
2.  Citrine
Another crystal that’s easy to get a hold of and so great for energizing is citrine.

It doesn’t need to be a natural citrine like the I show you in my video & in the photo below.  That’s an all-natural dark citrine point from the Congo.

You might be more acquainted with citrine that looks like this.

That will work too.

This type of citrine is actually baked amethyst but it still works with the light frequency energy of citrine.  You can learn more about that in my classic blog post about citrine over here.

You can tell the difference because the baked citrine is usually in the geo form of a drusy.  It’s also dark, dark, like dark iced tea & maybe orange as opposed to natural citrine which can be almost smokey, but always retains that yellow hue.
Pow!  There you have it, your go to energizing crystal combo:   Citrine and Carnelian. I’m tellin’ you…it doesn’t get any easier than this.

Now we’re going to add some more vibrational energies. Ya Ready?

Essential oils

I often have some aromatherapy essential oils warming in my oil diffuser and I love to pair essential oils with this crystal combination to really amp up the energy.

***I don’t promote any one single brand of essential oils as long as they are Fair Trade, Organic (if possible) and 100% pure.  Just no synthetics, thank you very much.***
Peppermint
Peppermint essential oil is good for waking up the senses.

It works wonderfully well with the vibrational frequency of citrine + carnelian.
Lemon
Add a little lemon oil and this combination is ready to give you a big boost; ushering in lots of healthy energy.
Smoothie Goodness
In the above video I also had a green gem-ed out smoothie. Here’s the recipe for that I mentioned. It’s not particularly energizing per se, but it’s especially yummy & healthy…which always helps with energy eventually.

I whipped up some:

  • banana
  • frozen black cherries
  • kale
  • silica gel
  • quartz gem elixir

I hope you enjoy this Energizing Crystal Combo and that you try some of these additional tips to superblast the combo.

Do you have Citrine & Carnelian? Peppermint & Lemon essential oils?  Give it a try & let me know. Does it boost you up?  Share with me in the comments below.

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!

Navigating Depression; How Crystals Can Help

Hibiscus Moon Crystal Healer, healing, health, Videos 37 Comments

At one time or another, I’d guess that everyone has been touched by depression.

Some of us end up battling with it more than others.

I personally know depression from all sides. I’ve experienced it myself & have had several close family members who’ve had to deal with it.

I know that it’s debilitating & it can make you anxious b/c you’re so desperate to just get out of that feeling of hopelessness. There are many different levels & shades of depression & all may need to be dealt with differently.

BUT whatever method is your chosen method to help heal & deal, I feel any sound holistic healthy approach can be amplified & enhanced through the use of energy work & crystals. So this is the perfect spot for my…

BORING DISCLAIMER: I think you already know that I’m not a doctor & am not giving medical advice. I feel crystals should be used as a compliment to & not as a replacement for regular medical and/or psychological care & consultation.

Here’s a recent question I received:

Q: I’ve been searching all over the internet for depression specific crystal suggestions.  Do you have a go-to crystal prescription for depression?

Good Question!  Let’s dive in …

Crystals for Depression
Now the first suggestion I have is a mineral.  As I teach in my Certified Crystal Healer Course, all minerals are crystals at the microscopic level…even if you can’t see the crystals with the naked eye. So this pick, it’s a common one.  Most of us have it in one way, in one form of jewelry or another…
Yellow Gold
Yellow gold is great for busting us out of depression. It has a very strong male energy and along with that strong-push-male energy, it has a very motivating kind of energy, which is usually just what we need to get us out of that depressed feeling.
Ocean Jasper
In the above video, I have ocean jasper in this nice little pendant coupled with peridot.

Ocean Jasper is great for coping with change.

Many times big changes in our lives are what precipitates or causes depression. Ocean Jasper gives you the strength to cope with that change.

It’s also is about bringing in that element of water; it has a lot of water energy so it’s about renewal.  If you need to renew what’s going on in your life, to get over this depression period, then ocean jasper helps bring in that washing away cleansing and renewal energy.
Citrine
Citrine is a commonly-recommended crystal for depression. It’s one that I’ve talked about often. Citrine comes in handy for a lot of life’s little curve balls and it’s known as a “happy stone”.

It helps bring in a happy sunny disposition; happy energy. It doesn’t need to be a natural Citrine like these shown below:

You can choose to work with the heat-treated variety just as well…

I do always say, though, that the natural citrine packs a way more powerful punch than the treated variety. I’ve talk about that before so you can check out some of my other videos on citrine and why it’s heated and what that does.

It’s not a bad thing though at all.
Amber
I can’t recommend this one enough.

However, I do have to caution that it is becoming relatively difficult to find natural true amber.

I was given an amber gift and it turned out to be a resin, it was totally plastic. 🙁 So again, here’s a link to my blog post on how to tell the difference between real amber and fake amber.

So anyway…amber is wonderful for chasing the blues away.

Amber helps with S.A.D.; seasonal affective disorder. Many of us who experience a lack of sunlight or lack of vitamin D fall into a winter depression during the colder winter months…most especially if you live in a climate where the winter season is very extreme or long. So if you do fall victim to that perhaps wearing some amber jewelry (authentic amber jewelry) can really help you out with the S.A.D. and coping with that.
Rose Quartz
My next pick for working through depression is Rose Quartz and I recently did a video all about rose quartz.

Rose quartz is wonderful for any kind of emotional healing, compassion, and just general “feel great” energy. ♥
Tiger’s Eye
And my last pick for crystals and stones to work with your depression is tiger’s eye. In my video you’ll notice I’m actually wearing some tiger’s eye rings. ?

Tiger’s eye gives us strength & it helps us balance in the extremes.  You know, if you’re really having a hard bout of depression if you’re in the really extreme lows of the lows, tiger’s eye is a good one to go to.

It’s also got a very protective quality, giving you the strength that you need to help balance out so that you’re not in the throes of the extremes.  It’s a great stone to work with for someone affected by bipolar disorder; that is dealing with the extremes (extreme highs and extreme lows).
Now Let’s TAWK SCIENCE!
In a scientific experiment published in 1993, a quartz crystal presented to depressed test subjects improved long-term healing when compared to a placebo fake glass crystal.

70% continued improvement with the quartz crystal vs. 30% continued improvement with those presented with the placebo. BOOO-YAH!

This is HUGE!

That’s actually 2x as good as antidepressants…w/o the nasty side effects. Not saying that you should dump your antidepressants (as they do have their place) but to have a powerful tool available to you like that in the form of a crystal?! HUGE.

First, I want to be sure to add in the non-crystal tips that I feel you should tap into alongside crystal healing b/c it’s recommend over & over again…& I know it worked for me:

  • Get regular exercise, consistently. Get those endorphins flowing. Helps so much with hormone balancing! I know it may feel like the very last thing you want to do, but trust me…it helps so very much!
  • Get your hormones checked & safely balanced with a natural bio-identical alternative (especially if you’re in hormone-decline years {can start as early as age 35}…yes, this applies to males also!)
  • If you tend towards a lack of sleep, get caught up. Makes a big difference.
  • Eat clean! Eating junk is only hurting you, so clean up that diet.

Depression-Busting Crystal Tips
1. Crystal MeditationSelf-Medicate? No, Self-Meditate! Grab your fav. crystal from my above list, put on a guided meditation (like this one) and go relax for about 15 min. I guarantee you’ll feel much better afterwards.

2. Adopt good sleep habits with the help of crystals

3. Have a Berry Banana Depression Busting Smoothie at least 4 times/week (Great for mood boosting & energy!); High in vitamin C, omega 3, fiber, anti-oxidants, amino acids, protein & potassium, all of which help to boost your brain function & beat the blues away.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Cup Organic Frozen Berries
  • 1/2 Cup Citrine Gem Elixir Water (just drop a citrine stone into distilled water overnight)
  • 1 Small Organic Banana
  • 1 tsp colloidal gold
  • 1 Tbsp. organic local (if possible) raw honey
  • 1 Tbsp. silica (yep, same stuff quartz crystals are made of!)
  • 1 Tbsp. local (if possible) Bee Pollen
  • 2 Tbsp. Hemp Protein Powder

 

4. Good Mood Mojo Bag: Work with a chosen crystal from above to kill the ANTs (automatic negative thoughts; coined by Dr. Daniel Amen) that fuel depression.

Negative thinking patterns provide the gas for anxiety & depression, not to mention that thoughts become things! Eeeek. Create a mojo kit just for this! Grab a little bag of some sort, add in a crystal or 2 then add in some Jasmine, Roman Chamomile, Mandarin essential oils along with a mix of lemon balm & lavender herbs. Carry it around with you in your pocket.

BAM! You’ll see. 😉

5. Anti-Depression Gem Elixir Tea (with any herbs…if you’re taking any antidepressants be sure to check with your Dr. first!):

Ingredients:

  • Fill a small tea infuser ball with…
  • St. John’s Wort organic herb
  • Siberian Ginseng organic herb
  • Citrine & Tiger’s Eye tumbled stones…yep, plop them right in a few minutes after you’ve made your tea so it’s not too hot.
  • Optional: sweeten it up a bit with some Raw Organic Honey

6. Blues-Busting Stress Release Bath: Soak it up with a few drops of lavender essential oil, then drop in an amber, rose quartz & citrine tumbled stones. Ahhhh, relaxing & mood-boosting.

I hope that these tips can help you or someone you love navigate some of the challenges depression can bring.

I’d love to hear what you think of my Crystal Picks in the comments below + any other ideas you’ve had success with in combating the blues. Thank you for sharing in the comments! 

Crystal Blessings!

 

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!
