Alaskan Essences seeks to prepare an elixir that would blend the healing support of the mineral kingdom with the strength and purity of the Alaskan environment. Beyond the physical signatures, i.e., the crystal system or family that a particular stone belongs to, its color, hardness, chemical composition, and the geologic process by which it was formed, Alaskan Essences' primary focus has been on the subtle invisible geometry or healing pattern of the stone, which is held at the devic level of the mineral kingdom and on the elemental forces called into service during the preparation process. Each Alaskan Gem Elixir was prepared in a pristine wilderness setting that was chosen for the particular elemental qualities it embodied, qualities that would most effectively anchor the healing pattern of the stone into the water. For example, many of the elixirs were prepared next to glaciers and glacial streams, some on the shore of the largest lake in the interior of Alaska, and several in a high mountain meadow filled with wild flowers and surrounded by peaks of the Alaskan Range, including Denali, the tallest mountain in North America. Gem elixirs are liquid preparations that contain the potentized healing vibrations of a particular gem or mineral. They stabilize and balance the energy field. This includes the subtle bodies which make up the aura, and the chakras, or main energy centers of the body. Gem elixirs work by catalyzing the release of stress and tension that has been allowed to build up in the energetic structure of the body. As these dissonant energies are released, that structure comes back into alignment, and the body is able to regain its natural state of balance, stability, and resistance to stress.
