Amethyst takes headaches away and swiftly eases tension headaches and migraine headaches. Applied externally, it is a sovereign remedy for spider bites, insect bites and to reduce swelling.
The Gemstone Amethyst
Amethyst is a violet quartz crystal that contains traces of iron and manganese. For our gem elixir, we use Amethyst geodes from Uruguay. The name of the gemstone is derived from the Greek word ‘amethustos’ which translates to ‘non-inebriated’: This stone’s property, the detoxification of alcohol, was know to the ancients and it is this classical medicinal application of the gemstone that Amethysts were named for.
Manufacture and Specifications of our Gem Elixir of Amethyst
We first turn the gemstone into nanometer-sized clusters. These clusters are then dissolved into a vegetable-derived solvent that has been imbued with the spiritus mundi and are extracted by circulation for six weeks in an incubator. This is the traditional method of Western Alchemy to produce elixirs as practiced by the Cathars and the Dutch School. This elixir is then pH-adjusted and treated with cold plasma technology for further enhancement, which yields our Mother Tincture. One part of this Mother Tincture is diluted with nine parts of alcohol and water and is succused (vigorously shaken) to produce the Homeopathic Potency 1X. Our formula is alcohol reduced, with only 25% alcohol by volume, and is manufactured in accordance with the Homoeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States in its current edition. Due to the high concentration of our Mother Tincture, the Homeopathic Potency 1X carries more Amethyst nano-clusters than it may hold in solution; an edible precipitate of organically bonded Amethyst nano-clusters may form over time. We suggest shaking the preparation once before taking.
Use as directed by your health care professional.
Standard Dosage recommendation for adults: Seven drops per day under the tongue or in 1 oz of water between meals for one week. Reduce to 3-4 drops per day from week two onwards. In acute cases, up to ten drops several times per day or until symptoms disappear. For external application to insect bites, stings or swellings we suggest dabbing the elixir directly on the affected area.
