I received an email this week that asked this:
"Samantha, I'm intrigued by your Crystal Clear spray. Does it really work?"
Hmm, how did she expect me to answer that? "Shucks, you got me. Nope, it doesn't work. I just sell bottles filled with water."
As a teacher, I'm trained to say, "There's no such thing as a dumb question." :)
Do sprays really work? Short answer - yes. If you don't believe me, don't buy mine. Make your own.
All you need is blessed or charge water, clear alcohol like vodka, and oils of your choosing.
I get my blessed water from the font at my church. But if you're not comfortable with that, you can pour distilled water into a glass bowl and charge it in the sun for two - three hours. Or you can use ocean water. I live near the beach, so often I'll bring an empty water jug to the beach with me and it fill it up.
You want to fill a spray bottle about 3/4 full with the water. Top off with the vodka; this prevents the water from getting that murky smell and allows you to use your spray bottle for quite some time.
Next, you want to choose your oils. Here's a quick run down of what some do:
For general space clearing and to cleanse your auric field: sage, lavender, frankincense and myrrh.
To enhance romance and relaxation: lavender, jasmine, rose, ylang ylang, and sandalwood
To add energy and joy to your space: lemon. This stimulating scent will boost your immune system and works well when blended with other oils.
To stimulate the mind, body and spirit: rosemary. Rosemary for remembrance is a great scent to use when you're feeling worn down and depleted. It acts as an antiseptic so spray it when someone in your home isn't feeling well too.
To cheer you up: basil, bergamot, clary sage and thyme
To balance emotions: bergamot, clary sage
For a good night's sleep: basil, clary sage, thyme, lavender, chamomile
There are all sorts of specific recipes out there for making sprays. Add nine drops of this oil and three drops of that oil, but you might want to let your intuition guide you and use what smells best and feels best for you. For example, when I make my Crystal Clear sprays, the different types of sage are a bit overpowering, so I'll add more lavender and myrrh.
I also add crystals to my sprays. Carnelian is a great stone to add to your spray bottle because one of its main jobs is to cleanse the area its in. So it will work hard to keep your spray bottle and the area it's spraying cleansed and cleared. Clear quartz is also a great stone to add to your spray bottle because it's an energizer. Amethyst, the stone of spirituality, will work well too. Jasper is a good stone to add for protection.
I also add dried sage and sweetgrass to my sprays.
What can you use sprays for? You can use them to cleanse the energy in your home, car and office. You can use them to energetically cleanse your crystals and jewelry.
You can put a Monster Spray label on your bottle and use them to help your children feel safe at night.
You can use sprays to cleanse your bedroom to ensure a good night's rest.
I use my Crystal Clear Spray to quickly cleanse my crystals, my hands, my cards and my office between clients. I spray it in my home every day to cleanse the energy there and I spritz the crystals in my home when I don't have time for a thorough cleanse.
Experiment, spray and enjoy!
