I remember doing that about twenty years ago… good times).

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
[thrive_2step id='21838'][/thrive_2step]

*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!

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.

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

How to Clear Negative Energy Out of Your Home FAST

Hibiscus Moon cleansing, Crystal Grids, energy work, Gem Elixirs, space clearing, Videos 8 Comments

I’m often asked…
Can we clear negative energy out of our home or room using crystals?
Yep, yep…we totally can!

What do I mean by “clearing your room or home of negative energy”?
Well, a lot of the time, when people enter into a room they can actually physically feel what I like to call “yuck & stuck energies” from “negative energy or negativity” and they want to clear it out.

Here are a few other blog posts I’ve written on the subject:

  • How To Deal with Negative People in 5 Sparkly Steps
  • 4 Crystals for “Protection”
  • Crystals Tips for Empaths & Highly Sensitive People

There are many ways to clear the energy, like sage smudging or using sound acoustics (as I demo in the below video):

In this blog post I’m going to focus on how to clear negative energy specifically with *crystals*.
How do you clear energy using crystals?
To clarify, what I’m talking about is mainly “purifying” the energy in a space or transmuting the energy using crystals, because they’re so great at doing that.

You want to make sure you start with “re-tuned” crystals; meaning that the crystal has been cleared of any previous energy & reset back to its dominant oscillary rate (or base vibratory rate). (Click here for my preferred energy clearing technique for crystals).

Now, I don’t think that crystals need to be cleared all the time. (And here’s why.)

But if you’re using them specifically for the purpose of retuning energy, transmuting the energy, purifying the space then you want to start with crystals that have already been retuned.  So go ahead & CLEANSE AWAY!

I feel the best way to do that is:

  • Gather the crystals up you’re going to use in a bunch
  • Use a crystal singing bowl (I recommend & use these…use coupon code: HM10 for 10% off your order!), Tibetan singing bowl or some tingshas to bathe & reset those beauties in sound acoustics; clearing them w/ the vibrations of sound. Sound energy is my favorite way to re-tune the crystals! It’s the easiest and the safest way to do it, believe me.
  • Crystals in Your Space
    1 thing that you can do is to simply have crystals present in your space that are large enough to emit energy in all directions.

    The larger the space, the larger the crystal you want there.

    [caption id="attachment_17979" align="aligncenter" width="595"] Trying to climb into my large amethyst geode. ;)[/caption]

    Size does matter in this respect.

    For this purpose, I wouldn’t use a single crystal point b/c generally, that will just send the energy up through the apex (that’s what we call the point) in 1 direction.

    A better choice would be a cluster that can radiate the energy in many different directions. A cluster has  many different apexes (appices) that point in all different directions so the energy can be emanating all over.

    Or you can choose something that’s cut & polished for the purpose of radiating energy in all different directions…like a sphere; like my HANDSOME Lapis Lazuli specimen here…look at those pyrite sparkles!

     

    Remember, the larger the room the larger the crystal needed! So if you’re trying to do this for a very big space it might be better to have a few crystals or a larger single piece.

    If you want to do this for an average size home or office then I recommend putting 1 crystal in each room rather than relying on 1 crystal to do the job for the entire house.  Or even doing a crystal grid to surround the property (more on that below).

    Gem Elixir Sprays!
    Another sparkly option is to create a Gem Elixir Spray; a similar practice to sage smudging, but uses the power of crystal vibrations in water to clear your space.  You would create a gem elixir spray with the specific intended purpose of retuning, transmuting, purifying the energy in the space. 🙂

    [caption id="attachment_2303" align="aligncenter" width="570"] Sorry Crystal Hotties. Not for sale. I can’t keep up with production on these. They sell out as quickly as I can make them! So, YEAH! It works!![/caption]

    A gem elixir spray takes on the essence of the gem or crystal (& any other essences you might add to the mix).

    There are sooo many different, FUN & creative ways to make gem elixirs
    For energy-clearing your room you could try this gem elixir combo:

    • Smokey Quartz + Black Tourmaline Gem elixir spray.  You’d use those specifically  b/c those 2 crystals are well-known for transmuting & purifying energy in a space. These powerhouse crystals are ideal so that any kind of energy coming in gets transmuted to neutral.
    • Add some essential oils to compliment & enhance the energies choosing oils that are known for clearing space such as sage (specifically salvia officinalis or salvia apiana) for the purpose of transmuting energy in a space.

    Grid it!
    You can create a crystal grid to transmute the entire room, space or home!

    You can grid a room or space with either clear quartz to help purify that energy or even Black Tourmaline or Smokey Quartz to transmute.

     
    Gridding with Clear Quartz:

    • take 4 points of generally the same size
    • Put 1 crystal:
      • either in each corner pointing inwards
      • Or 1 on each wall, if it’s four walls, have one @ each wall pointing inwards

    Like I’ve said, this is not the only way to clear energy. There are many different methods.  But these are a few crystal tips you can try out, experiment & have fun with. 🙂

    Do you regularly clear the energy in your home? Do you use crystals to help w/ this purpose?  Please share with our community in the comments below.
