Water Safe Crystals for Crystal Water and Crystal Baths

Crystals have many uses and benefits. Today, we want to touch on how you can use crystals with water. It’s important to note that not all crystals can be used in water. Some crystals will dissolve in water and some will rust, so always check before exposing your crystals to water.

Water Safe Crystals

Besides using crystals in your bath or for making crystal drinking water, you can use water to cleanse your crystals. But, again, be sure and check if the crystal is water safe first. The hardness of a crystal will determine if it is safe to place in water. 

You can use Moh’s Scale of Mineral Hardness to see how hard your crystals are but it isn’t very comprehensive. Any crystal from the quartz family is safe to put in water, as are calcite stones. Here’s an article from Amarisland that has a great list of which crystals are water safe and which ones aren’t. 

Here’s a summary based on the crystals we mention in Freeing the Butterfly.

What is Crystal Water?

Crystal water is water that has been infused with crystal essences. You can make crystal-infused water to drink or crystal-infused water for your bath. If using crystals that are safe to place in water, put your crystals in a glass or mason jar then fill with water. Leave the water out in the sun or under the moonlight to help the energy of the crystals infuse the water.

For crystals that aren’t safe to put in water, you can make crystal-infused water by placing them next to your glass or mason jar and leaving in them under the sun or moonlight. If you don’t want to put your water outside, you can leave it in a window sill or anywhere the sun and moonlight will reach it.

Make sure you strain the water before drinking in case there is any debris left behind from the crystals, or make your water by placing crystals next to your water instead of in it if you are worried about this.

Do the same thing for making crystal bath water and add it to your bath for a crystal infused bathing experience.

Crystals for your bath and drinking water

Benefits of Drinking Crystal Water

Crystal-infused drinking water offers many health benefits including strengthening our bodies and helping us feel calm. People have been drinking crystal-infused water for centuries. The benefits of drinking crystal-infused water depend on the crystal you choose.  

If you want to feel more grounded, try smoky quartz. To detoxify the body, try shungite. Rose quartz will help strengthen your heart chakra, and citrine will help attract prosperity into your life.

What is a Crystal Bath?

In addition to making crystal-infused water for your bath, you can also place your crystals directly in your bath (for water safe crystals) or around your tub (for crystals that aren’t water safe). You can combine crystals in and around your bath to achieve different results based on what you’re working on.

Benefits of Crystal Baths

Taking a bath with your crystals is a great way to relax and recharge. Just like with crystal-infused drinking water, the benefits of a crystal bath will depend on the crystal(s) you use. Calcite is great for relieving pain. Quartz can help you feel more confident, and amethyst can awaken your creative spirit.

Whether you are bathing with your crystals or making crystal-infused drinking water, always remember to check if it’s safe to use your crystals in water. If you can’t find a clear answer, then it’s better to skip the water and place the crystal beside it instead.
