Why are these essences better than some I could make myself ?
Many people prepare their gem essence by taking a glass bowl outside, filling it with distilled water, placing their gem in it and leaving it there in the sun for two hours.
Whilst this method will work with flower essences, it will work to a very limited degree or not at all with gem essences, there are some major concerns here that this is not taking into consideration. The reason flower essences can be made in this manner is that flower exude dew - which contains their life force which can be imparted into the water. However as gems exude nothing physically, further techniques are required to extract their energies.These include electromagnetic concerns, electronically aligned pyramidal energies, chromotherapy, lunar cycles, feng shui, geomancy and higher qi gong enhancement. In pursuit for particularly effective and potentised essences, I believe these factors are crucial.If you would like more information on this refer to the Gem essence workbook or contact us directly to discuss this further.
The Renascent Gem Essence workbook has detailed information on the manufacture of essences, not necessarily to teach you how to create your own Gem Essences, for without the correct equipment, Geological Knowledge and background you would probably, at the very least, make a weak and inefficient essence and at the worst could make a deadly solution.
In so many areas of my life I am tempted to step in and make something myself to cut costs and have the thrill of discovery, however much life experience has taught me that unless my life is dedicated to focus solely on that area then I am always better off to leave it to those people who are. I also see it as supporting the energies of those people who have spent years of their lives researching and creating a potentised wonderful product for me to use. I know this sounds a little like I am attempting to encourage you to solely make a purchase of a product from us. Nothing could be further from the truth. At the College we are delighted to honour others path and show them how to assist themselves, however in this case, I honestly believe that unless you have excellent gemmological skills, healing skills, Feng Shui, Geomancy, Pyramidal skills and high level Qi Gong, the product you are desiring may well be better off purchased if you are dedicated to utilising a quality healing product.
The following is an extract from the Renascent Gem Essence workbook (please note the material is copyright, please do not reproduce it without our direct permission - Thank you)
I received a phone call from a lady some time ago, requesting that I make her an essence from a particular item (in this case it was a Pearl). I explained that we do not make Pearl essence and asked why it was so important that she had this particular essence. It seems that she had been to a practitioner who had told her that this was what she needed to get made. I explained that we only create 40 essences (although 1 extra - Chrysoprase, has recently been added for the Blessing Oil) as these are all we find necessary for all concerns. They are what we call the “umbrella essences” meaning that all other gems and crystals healing properties will be covered by one or more of these 40 and are therefore not necessary in essence form.
Delving a little deeper, I asked for the circumstances and the emotional states that led to her needing the Pearl essence, all of the states she described would be assisted by the use of a blend of Sugilite and Moonstone essence. I suggested they could be diluted together and mailed to her if she did not have the two stock essences. However, not satisfied with this purely because a practitioner had told her that is what she needed, she continued on with her desire to obtain Pearl essence. When I again informed her it was not a standard essence we supplied, she became very agitated and started raising her voice and asking what was wrong with this company and why wouldn’t we simply make it for her.
Explaining again that we felt it was already covered and therefore unnecessary, she asked if she brought us a Pearl would we consider making a batch of that essence for her. Of course, this is possible, however on realising that with equipment costs, purification and the myriad of aspects that go into creating an essence the minimum quantity available would be 4 litres at a cost of approximately $15000 (not charging for equipment already on site) she quietened down considerably. I explained that with any process that is intensive, these sort of set up costs are incurred. If I was to take her Pearl and place it in a bowl of water, in my back yard, for a few hours or even days, I could probably make her essence for about $10 - $20. Yet as the only essences I will use are dedicated to excellence, this is not something I could possibly consider to do.
An awakening dawned over her and she realised what it was I was saying to her. If this was the way she wanted to obtain Pearl essence, she could do it herself, yet if she wanted a potentised healing, chances are it would not occur through this so called essence once it was completed.
Some time back I heard of a lady who will make Gem Essences in this manner for anyone who bring her their gems. I called this lady and told her I had a piece of Cinnabar and wondered if she would make an essence of it if I brought it to her. She eagerly decided she would and it would cost me under $20 for it. Inquiring how the essence would be made, she explained she would place the stone in a bowl of water outside for some hours or days, then remove the stone and bottle the remaining water with brandy for me. I asked her if I could drink it if I chose to and she explained that they do prefer external application, however it would be perfectly safe if anyone drank this liquid. At this point I expressed that her limited Geological knowledge was quite frightening and made the suggestion that it would be a good idea for her to go and dedicate 5 - 10 years of her life studying geology or a mineralogical course to gain some awareness. Taken aback and puzzled she asked why I would suggest such a thing. I explained that she was obviously unaware that Cinnabar had a water soluble Arsenic concentration and any such stone placed in water for a period of days would naturally leech this arsenic into the water and the water would become a toxic liquid. Taken internally, depending on its concentration, at the very least would make the patient quite ill, at the worst, kill them.
I was met with silence for quite some time as this was mulled over, followed by anger and resentment at being tricked. I explained that my object was not to “trick” anyone, yet as a health practitioner it is important that providing such a service as selling essences to therapists needs a dedicated heart and possibly some further studies. She thanked me for my input and went on her way, I have noticed that the essences from this company now have printed on them “for external use only” although I do not believe the method of creating the stock essences has been amended.
At a show I attended, a gem essence manufacturer delighted in showing me their new acquisition, a large piece of Smoky Quartz, they had used to make their last batch of Smoky Quartz essence. Unfortunately, the piece in their hands was in fact clear quartz, heat treated to change the appearance into that of Smoky Quartz. Again with a geological lack of knowledge this was not detected. At the same show I came across some vibrantly colored bottles, labelled as Gem Essences. As I picked them up I noticed they rattled. On closer inspection, I found that they were simply small bottles of water with a tiny gem placed in each one - someone’s idea of cashing in I guess and a method of sales I find sadly lacking in integrity.
There are so many different gems and minerals available and many methods of treating to alter their appearance that it is now very common for such gems to be sold or passed off as something which they are not. In some cases it is not even possible for a trained professional to tell the difference by sight alone and assaying and testing may be necessary to ensure the gem is in fact genuine and the mineral it is said to be.
Although there are health concerns involved with undedicated companies making their own essences, we believe the saddest part of this involves the general public, who take or use essences in good faith, which at worst can make them ill and at least, produce no benefits for them.
In the Renascent range of essences all of the above factors are taken greatly into consideration. We work with many people, each are experts in their chosen field to ensure that you have a beautifully pure, potentised and high quality treatment in the Renascent range of essences on all levels - vibrational healing, health, accuracy, reliability and credibility.
