As most of you may know I am a true believer in the power of crystals. I keep them throughout my home, carry them in my bag and wear them on my body. I use them to facilitate whatever I am trying to attract or repel and I know for a fact they have helped me tremendously in various situations.

About 6 months ago I came across these Gem Essences made by Moon Nectar Apothecary at my local mystic haunt Modern Mystic. I immediately purchased a few, and since then my collection has grown 3 fold. I use Malachite at night for deep REM sleep and to cleanse and protect my energy field. In the morning I massage whatever stone I feel I need into the corresponding chakras.  Sometimes I layer them depending on how I feel. My current daily blend is Citrine and Moldavite which are both great stones to use when starting on a new path. I also use them during my yoga classes, on my son or as part of a candle ritual for any moon ceremonies. A recent add is Lapis Lazuli.  I had a reading with an intuitive who said the entire time she kept getting visions of me with a huge lapis stone on my third eye. Apparently I was an Egyptian in a past life, but that’s another post….


Anyhow, each essence comes with a description for use as well as a listing of what Chakras it corresponds to. I typically place a drop or two on the corresponding Chakras throughout the day to amplify their power. She also sells a mini kit with small sizes of all the essences. Great way to sample different stones if you are unfamiliar. 


From Moon Nectar’s site:

Gem Essence are vibrational gem oils that provide properties from each gem stone and essential oil blends.  They excrete a vibrational frequency of each stone and are to be used with intention.

How to use:

– Add 8-10 drops to a meditative intention bath using the corresponding herbs to attract intention

-Use in dressing a candle during altar or moon rituals and anointing candle with gem oil

-Can be used on chakra or pulse points, as massage oil, hand or foot wash, or before yoga, meditation, presentations, or performances.

-Can also be used around your house or work area, on doorways, knobs, car or around your space.

A tip: when you get your bottle use tape to cover the label, I have found that because it’s an oil product it will dissolve the writing on the label over time rendering it hard to read. However, the owner was amazing and sent me all new labels when she realized mine had faded!
