bathing with crystalsBathing With Stones And Crystals

Baths are a great way to benefit from  crystal energy.  Many people find that bathing with rose quartz ,clear quartz points  or other water safe crystals or even   plain  old rocks enhances the bathing experience dramatically. The water also  clears  and vitalizes the  crystals as well.
Bathing with the crystals  is also a good way to commune and attune with  stones because the water will  enhance the vibration of the stones and help amplify your sensitivity and  ability to connect and harmonize your energy and awareness.
  I've bathed with crystals and rocks quite often. I discovered the benefits when we lost  the stopper for the Tub at our old house and used a big ordinary old  rock to hold a rubber flat stopper down and noticed that  the baths became much more refreshing. After we got a plug  and removed the rock  I noticed a decrease in the vitalizing quality of the baths, We started bathing with rocks again  because it did make a difference .

 A related bath method for aura cleansing  is to use sea salt in the tub. This may be  harsh on soft crystals  it is fine for people. A combination of Sea salt, Epsom salts  and Bicarbonate of soda is also used for this sometimes. Usually it is suggested that ten minutes is long enough for a bath in this combination. A few drops of lavender or other essential oil or a few cups of strong herbal tea can also be added to your tub  .
You can use flower essences, herbs or essential oils in the bath with your crystals and stones.
You can put stones and crystals in your bath directly, or  use  infused  gem water, gem elixirs or Gem essences  . These are usually made by placing stones in or around water and infusing or charging the water with the gem energy .
Gem waters are usually those where the crystal or stone is simply kept in the water for a while  before the water is used. Gem Elixirs and essences are made by charging the water with the stones in sunlight, moonlight or with crystal shakti energy or by intention or  in ritual.  Elixirs can  be used without being  diluted /expanded before use. Gem essences are made from the elixirs and are extended and can be  preserved  in the same way as flower essences with the addition of a little  Brandy,  glycerine or vinager.  A few drops of a commercial or home made gem essence is enough to carry the gem vibration through the water.
    You can  also add elixirs or essences  to a spray bottle of water  and spray this on the walls of the shower stall and shower head . These sprays are also used for aura and room cleansing.

    You can run  crystal energy as a shakti  into the tub either directly if you have  that ability  or have been attuned to one of the systems  that works with crystal shakti (Such as the Crystal Deva Empowerments). You can also  request the crystal deva to charge the bath water  or shower water with the crystal energy.
    Some people find it effective to  hold a stone in their receptive hand (usually the left in right handed people) and place their projective  hand  in the water with the intention that the energy be transmitted to and held in the water.
Rose Quartz, Clear  Quartz  crystals , Rainbow Quartz and  Granite are among the most favored stones for bathing with. Most of the members of the quartz family make good bath companions these include Amethyst, Aventurine , Carnelian, Garnet, Rose Quartz, Citrine, Chyrosphase, Bloodstone, Jasper, Agate, Onyx, Tigers Eye.

 You will probably want to put small stones in a cloth bag or a colander or some other container which is also bath safe  so that the crystals cannot go down the drain or get chipped .  A seashell such as  abalone  can be used as a container . It is best to avoid putting glass in the tub because of the possibility of  breakage.  Some people make a slit in a sponge so that they can slide a crystal into the center to protect it. It is possible to buy small bowls carved from marble, jade ,carnelian or aventurine etc. one of these  could be used though the cost of these bowls may be prohibitive for bath use.

Some stones can chip or crack in hot water you  probably won't want to put the most precious and perfect stones in the bath. There are quite a few stones that could be  dissolved or damaged in water  Halite (salt), Sylvite, Desert Rose Selenite, all Selenite, Gypsum , Angelite , Azurite ,Talc. Calcite, Alabaster, Sulfur dissolves in salt water. I have  been told that any stone that has a name ending in ite can possibly be damaged by water though I am not sure about that . There are stones that rust like iron ore or can be toxic  such as stones with copper, lead and arsenic  these should never be used in your bath.

Another way to get  crystal energy into your bath is to put a charged stone in with your  bath salts or bubble bath and use intention to charge the salts with the energy.  You may like the energy from keeping a small crystal point in the bottle of shampoo or liquid soap or shower gel There was once a shampoo (Prell) which   was sold with a cultured pearl in the bottle in the 50s. You may also enjoy experimenting with putting color in your bath water for healing purposes.
