It’s only two days away from Valentine’s Day and we’re really feeling the love here at A&D. This week we have so many exciting events to celebrate, with the new moon only three days away and our signature Dark Night falling on Chinese New Year, we can’t think of a better excuse to surround ourselves with good energy and take the opportunity to cheers… to ourselves! That’s right, we’re embracing this Valentine’s Day with self-love! If you need a little helping hand, we have the perfect recipe for you. Whether you’re wanting to instil some good vibes for yourself or others we have a delicious way for you to do so.
We believe that crystals contain the healing vibration of the earth and all crystals and gemstones hold unique qualities. If you’re a regular at our Dark Night you will be familiar with our holistic crystal library that we offer throughout the night.  This month we will be launching our New Moon Pop Up Bar with a twist. We will be serving up some beautiful crystal infused elixirs that can really help set your intentions on the night and with the new moon fully present, is the perfect time to do so.
In light of our newest offerings, we have an easy DIY elixir that very easy to do at home. and we’ve chosen the perfect stone for the month of love, Rose Quartz Stone. This is the stone of unconditional love; it activates the heart chakra and fills your body with positive energy.
This recipe is for two people. If you would like to make a batch multiply accordingly.
Start by cleansing your crystals with warm, salted filtered water. Rinse them a few times to get any dirt or loose particles off. When using raw unpolished crystals, it’s natural for them to have some earth matter still on them.
When working with crystals, be sure to cleanse them and charge them on a regular basis. Take the time to clear them and while your clearing them, set your intention, whether it be drawing abundance into your life, creating harmony and peace for yourself or others or just strengthening your mental clarity. You could also try a couple of other techniques to cleanse; you could smudge them with white sage or you can dip them in the ocean (this can be a very purifying for your crystals.) Afterward, charge them in the sunlight, they say to leave them out in the sunlight for no longer than two hours, this is mean to clear out the negative energy and replaces it with naturals finest energy.

You’re ready to make your Elixir, we’re calling it:
