They decorate the buffet in the wellness hotel and should not be missing in any elegant spa: water jugs filled with crystals! The gemstone water for drinking is considered by more and more beauty experts as an effective source of beauty and physical well-being.
How gemstones in water have a positive effect on body and mind
Minerals and trace elements from the world of stones have always enriched our water. They are the reason why mineral water from the deepest mountain springs is bottled and sold by the millions. Regular tap water, on the other hand, is usually obtained closer to the surface, contains fewer minerals, and therefore tastes different than your favorite bottled water.
Just like the crystals in the mountain, gemstones in the water jug can vitalize and enrich ordinary tap water. To do this, the stones are placed in a jar made of glass and this is filled with water. Now it takes 24 hours for the stones to release their properties to the water at full strength. Fans of the gemstone water swear by the positive effect on body and mind. In addition, the water revitalized with crystals is supposed to taste better and thus bring more enjoyment into everyday life.
These stones revitalize your drinking water
Amethyst, rock crystal and rose quartz are the classic trio for water jars and are often referred to as the base blend.
- Amethyst relaxes, calms and promotes concentration. Its clarifying effect is to help make decisions.
- Rose quartz stands for harmony and gives way to fears. In addition, the pink gemstone is said to promote blood circulation and thus do good to the skin, among other things.
- The rock crystal is considered the stone of power. It enhances the effect of other gemstones, creates clarity of thought and harmonizes body and mind. In addition, rock crystal contains beneficial minerals for skin, hair and nails.
Note: Not every gemstone – no matter how beautiful it looks – can be used as a crystal for your drinking water. Some of them, including malachite and tiger’s eye, can even release pollutants into the water. With the trio of amethyst, rock crystal and rose quartz you are guaranteed on the safe side.
Proper care of crystals for drinking water
The gems should never remain in the same water for more than two days. After each use, they are thoroughly cleaned under running water from the tap, dried and stored in a clean place for the next use. Do not use detergent or soap for cleaning. One to two minutes under cold running water is perfectly sufficient to keep your crystals hygienically clean for drinking water.
