If you have spent any time online lately, you’ve probably seen crystal water bottles. They’ve taken Instagram by storm, and they are popular among celebs, yogis, meditation gurus, and, probably, even the moms in your neighborhood. While they have recently become trendy, must-have items, people have been using crystals for their healing and metaphysical properties since ancient times. The ancients wore them as jewelry, carried them with them, and, of course, infused them into beverages to create what is known as “crystal elixirs.”

Crystal water bottles make creating and consuming crystal elixirs super easy. Just fill up the bottle (which contains crystals, of course), and you’re good to go. Are these bottles really all they are cracked up to be? I tried one out to find out for myself. Keep reading to find out what I learned.

Just Owning One Can Give Your Spirits a Lift

Crystals contain energy and various healing properties. That’s why many people choose to wear them as jewelry or keep them in their homes. Since the water bottles contain these powerful stones, simply keeping one close by and glancing at it from time to time seems to have spirit-lifting capabilities.

Even if you don’t fully buy into the healing powers of gemstones, there’s no denying that they are beautiful. Crystal water bottles have a sparkling, mystical appearance, and it’s hard not to feel at least some bit of happiness when you own one.

 

Perspective Matters

I like crystals. I feel good having them in my home and wearing them. Somehow, though, I was still a bit skeptical of the whole crystal water bottle trend. After all, how could soaking a rock in water really have an impact on my daily life?

I quickly found out that having that type of attitude can block the benefits of crystal elixirs. If you want them to “work,” so to speak, you need to believe that the crystals will help you. Mindset plays a huge role in crystal healing, so once I became more receptive to the powers of these mysterious potions, I started noticing more of an impact from drinking them.

It’s Helping Me Live My Best Life

Whether it’s the powers of the crystals or the simple joy that comes from drinking from something so beautiful, I’ve found that drinking from my crystal water bottle is helping me live my best life.

Something about the crystals makes the water taste cleaner and purer, and every time I take a sip from the bottle, I’m reminded of my goals and intentions.

Since I’ve started using my bottle, I feel more positive and upbeat. I also feel more connected on a spiritual level.

 

 

The Bottom Line

The effectiveness of things like crystal water bottles hasn’t been scientifically proven. Speaking from personal experience, though, I think they’re pretty great.

I love mine, and I feel like it is making a real difference in my life.

If you’re curious, try one out for yourself! Worst case scenario, you’ll end up with a gorgeous water bottle. Best case, you could improve your wellness and start living a better life. What do you have to lose?
