Product Review: Crystal Essences Charissa’s Cauldron

Crystal Essence Healing:

A review of four Crystal Essences

Today I am going to to continue to review the crystal essences that I have been working with.  Today we have a new set of four.  This set includes Smoky Quartz, Tigers Eye, Hematite, and Unakite.  Out of the four crystals the only one I had never worked with before is Unakite so it was interesting to start working with the crystals in this way.  I’ve been working with these four essences for two weeks now and I have to say they are remarkably effective.

Second set of Crystal Essences

I take four drops first thing in the morning and before bed.  The other two dosages are spread out throughout the day.  I added them to my water bottles so I am slowly adding the energetic forces of the crystal essences to my body all day.  If you have a hard time with the taste of vodka I suggest mixing the dosages into a drink for a more pleasant experience.

As a set these four harmonize really well and provide a great balance. They provide healing, balance, emotional security, and focus all at once. These four make a great set and I would highly advise people to think about working with these four essences together.

The first Crystal essence is Hematite.

Hematite is a stone that I have worked with for a long time when it comes to grounding and dealing with anxiety.  Over the last two weeks I have had a few personal issues come up that were slightly anxiety inducing.  Due to working with this crystal essence though I was able to stay grounded and focused at those moments.  I was also able to find focus and purpose in my work this week. The paper Charissa’s Cauldron sent with the essences gives the following as the associations with the crystal: Grounding, Balancing Mood Swings, adding focus and purpose, and protecting/deflecting unwanted energy from other sources.

It has been my experience that the crystal essence does a great job of working with those properties. There were a few stressful days where the energy of others may have otherwise effected my mood. With the aid of this crystal essence I felt I was able to keep my emotional shields in place and have them be a bit stronger than they were before. I have felt more focus and purpose when working this week and I have also felt grounded. This crystal essence really works.

The next crystal up is Smoky Quartz

Smoky Quartz is a crystal that while I was familiar with it I have not done much work with. I’ve been drawn much more to Amethyst, Rose Quartz, Citrine, and Clear Quartz. For some reason it just never really appealed to me as a crystal or stone. After working with the crystal essence for the last two weeks that attitude has changed now. Now I see it as a very useful crystal like its brothers in the quartz family.

If you deal with PTSD and even in therapy have a hard time letting go of emotions and events this stone will really help. It has been the ability for smoky quartz to help us remove that which does not serve our highest good and that no longer helps me I have found most helpful. The anxiety events I mentioned earlier were somewhat connected to my PTSD. So again this crystal essence has proven to be useful.

Other uses and associations with Smoky Quartz are focusing on the positive, dissolving negative energy, releasing stress, relieving anger and depression, and lifting fatigue. This stone is definitely a good healers stone. I’d recommend it for anyone who has issues with depression, anxiety, and stress. I am actually going to start looking for some to add to my crystal collection and start my own journey with this crystal.

The third essence up is actually the one I had no experience with whatsoever Unakite.

I started to work with this crystal essence completly out of curiosity. I had not seen or heard of that crystal before. Since I was working with crystals both familiar and new in a different way, I thought that Unakite would be a wonderful addition. Now I want to try and find this crystal and start working with it hands on as a healer.

This is the one crystal I think has been the most helpful for me over the past two weeks. This is a crystal for slow and steady healing. The type of healing I do for myself because of my past needs to be slow and steady. If I release too much at once or move to fast I can actually end up doing myself harm. The primary healing property of this crystal I relied on these past two weeks has been its source of slow, steady, healing and renewal.

This crystal it seems is one of release. Charissa lists the other properties as being able to bring repressed feelings like anger to the surface but deal with them and release them and behaviors related with them so we can heal. I believe that this and smoky quartz together would make a powerful crystal essence therapy for treating depression, anxiety, and PTSD.

The final crystal essence is one of my favorite crystals. That crystal is Tigers Eye

For me Tigers eye crystals have always been a crystal of strength and power. I feel reminded of the powerful felines that the stone was named after. I may have been connecting to an aspect of this crystal that I didn’t realize before. I felt that working with it in a crystal essence would help me understand it more and it has.

What I used to feel as strength I believe is the property of a strong sense of self coming through. According to Charissa the crystal is great for strengthening the boundaries between our true selves and the emotions we feel strongly (like anger, fear and jealousy). This is essential as it is easy to loose ourselves in those emotions and forget who we really are.

I’d recommend this crystal to anyone who has issues with strong emotions. This essence will help keep you in check and in balance.

Once again the products of Charissa’s Cauldron have proven to be highly effective and very useful. I will continue to work with these crystal essences for a while.

Product Review: Crystal Essences from Charissa’s Cauldron

Set of 4 Crystal Essences

Today I am talking to you about the first set of Crystal Essences I am reviewing for Charissa’s Cauldron. This is one of the first trades I have done with The Pagan Business Network I was sent a set of twelve Crystal Essences. Since I do work with crystal magic I though that these essences might be another way for me to work with crystals and I was right. This review is going to focus on a set of 4 Crystal Essences. Since there were so many in the trade I have decided to try and work with them in sets of 4. This will give me time to really experience the essences.

So to start with I’m going to post an excerpt about what essences are from her website: Lady Charissa: About Essences

Essences are infusions that carry the energetic properties of plants or crystals. They address the emotional and mental aspects of health and well being. The most well known essences are Dr. Bach’s Flower Remedies. He discovered the first 38 remedies in the 1930’s. There are many more available now.

These essences interact with our life energy on an emotional and mental level. They work best on the deeper emotional issues we have rather than the resulting feelings. In choosing essences look for the deep causes or roots of these emotions. These issues keep you from reaching a state of mental and emotional well being. This can cause you to put up roadblocks and keep you from reaching dreams and goals in life.

Essences do not create euphoria or banish conflict or pain. They actually will help you bring buried feelings to the surface and deal with them so you can move towards a state of health and wellness.

Essences can be taken orally or used in a mist sprayer, a cream base or in a bath. The standard dosage is 4 drops 4 times daily. Essences do not contain toxic substances and only contain such minute traces of the physical substances of the plants that there is no concern for an allergic reaction. They work on an energetic vibrational level. The main ingredients of essence bottles are water and the alcohol that is used as a preservative. You would have to drink large quantities of essences to be affected by the alcohol content.

Crystal Essences are crystals that have their energetic properties charges into the alcohol (in this case Vodka). The 4 Crystal essences I am working with and reviewing right now are: Carnelian. Blue Onyx, Citrine, and Jade. Alone I’m sure they are each very effective. Together I have found a powerful get me to be myself set.

I started working with the essences by mixing 4 drops of them in my water. After a day or two I did the first two doses right on the tongue and the other two in the water. Before each drop was added to the drink or to my tongue I said a prayer and an affirmation about the crystal essences in order to strengthen their work and my work with them.

I use all four at a time as I felt that the balance of the energetic forces with these four would help me start making some changes in my life, and let me tell you they have. These essences are powerful and effective. I have been using them only as directed and found this internal magic to be very effective. For me the first changes we make should be internal magic and these essences allow for that practice.

The first essence up is Carnelian.

Carnellian Essence Carnelian Crystal Essence

There are aspects of my life that I have had difficulty expressing in any way. Over the last four days as I have been playing with the essences and working with them that has changed. I’ve been ale to express my needs and just go after them. I’ve also been highly motivated and found a renewed sense of passion. These are all aspects that the Carnelian essence can help you with.

The next essence is Blue Onyx

Blue Onyx Essence Blue Onyx

I’ve been using the Blue Onyx Crystal to be an enhancement for the spiritual work I am doing within the Feri tradition. The work in the Feri tradition is about claiming our spiritual selves and our spiritual strengths. What stood out for me with this crystal is its spiritual strength attribute.

When you combine that with the stress relief and the increase of self control you get an essence that helps us find balance within ourselves and can claim our own power. It also grounds us which allows us to find that power and strength. This essence is all about inner strength and peace.I’ve had a lot of stress the last week because of the short notice for the event this Saturday. This crystal essence has been a huge help in grounding me and using my spiritual strengths to find ways to deal with the stress. Blue Onyx Crystal Essence

The third Crystal Essence is Jade:

Jade Essence Jade

The Jade essences effects were the first that I really noticed. While I have always had dreams I had not always remembered them. With the Jade essence I was able to start remembering aspects of my dreams. I’ve also started to feel more connected as a person. This is another essence that has been an effective addition in the Feri tradition alignment work I do as its also about uniting the mind and body and mind and spirit as one. To me this has been happening through the dreams which is why I have been able to remember them more clearly and why they have had more of an impact on me.Jade Crystal Essence

Finally and last but not least is the Citrine Essence

Citrine essence Citrine

Citrine has has been keeping me very optimistic about the event and a few other things happening in my life. I have also been using it to break through my blocks and to bring me success and abundance. I had a sale since I started to use this essence which for me is a sign that the success and abundance is coming. I’m feeling good despite the various stresses in my life and I feel that everything will be fine which also shows that one of my blocks to success and abundance is being overcome (over worrying). Citrine Crystal Essence

The best thing about these essences is that everyone ordered has a paper that comes with it explaining the different attributes of the crystals that the essence works towards. This will allow you as an individual to be able to pick out which essences you feel will work best for your health and your situation.

I can’t wait to try the other 8
