The importance of drinking water shouldn’t be ignored at any time but particularly when you are detoxing it is important as it helps move the toxins out and away through your body.
There are a number of crystals that you cannot put in water. Examples of these are things like selenite which melts or things like malachite, which would actually leach nasty chemicals into the water that it wouldn’t do when you touch it when it’s dry.
Personally, I find the best solution to make crystal waters is to use a bottle specially designed for this. They come come in a number of designs. I favour one that has got a glass chamber at the bottom. I can unscrew the lid change the crystals to what I want and then it can carry on charging my water and getting it to vibrate at the same frequency.
There are various models on the market particularly a couple that actually put the chamber into the middle of the water rather than underneath it. However, these tend to be plastic and where possible I try and minimise my use of plastic where possible.
A simple way would be to put your crystals in a bowl then a glass of water in the bowl surrounded by the crystals. This means the crystals do not come into contact with the water but still work their magic. An hour or two on a windowsill should be enough to charge the glass of water.
