DIY: Crystal Water

Disclaimer #1:  I’m going to be babbling about crystals for a while, if you have no interest, this is probably not the post for you.  But, if you are also about the DIY/ thrifty girl (or boy) life, keep reading.

I love crystals.  I love to wear them and I have some beautiful pieces that are for decoration.  I especially love to learn about the ways different cultures have used them in the past and what they are believed to do.  Whether you believe that they do what my crystal books say they do, having that added positivity helps boost your mood or overall outlook.  That I love.

I started seeing these water bottles popping up on Instagram and I was like “um, yesssss, where do I buy one?”.  They are priced anywhere from $80-$100, no thanks.  I can’t see myself ever paying that much for a water bottle, but I love the idea of reaping the benefits of crystals through water.  You know what happens next: how can I have one and not pay $90 for it?  In comes Amazon to save the day.

I noticed that the bottle itself is just a glass water bottle with an infuser.  But instead of fruit, I can fill it with crystals.  This is the one I picked:

Next, the crystals.  I definitely recommend tumbled stones, they are smooth and there is less chance of any of the stone chipping off and getting through the screen on your infuser.  I went for rose quartz.  If you are buying stones online, make sure you read the product details/ reviews to make sure you are getting authentic stones.  You don’t want to be drinking water that is soaked with some sort of manufactured stone.

(I recommend buying two bags for this particular bottle.)

Rose Quartz is the stone of universal love. It restores trust and harmony in relationships, encouraging unconditional love. Rose Quartz purifies and opens the heart at all levels to promote love, self-love, friendship, deep inner healing and feelings of peace.

All together, this water bottle and my crystals cost about $25.  I love that you can so easily, and affordably, change the stones out as well.  I think I’m going for amethyst next!  Or maybe a mix of amethyst with rose quartz!

*If you are into crystals and are going to be using them in your water, I recommend reading about how to clean and charge them.

Disclaimer #2:  If you choose to try this crystal water, I highly recommend doing your own research as to what crystals you choose to put into your bottle.  Drink safely and responsibly.
