The latest volume of Judy Hall’s popular Crystal Prescriptions series covers a subject very close to my heart: crystal essences. As both a Witch and Vibrational Essence Practitioner, there was a lot of very juicy content for me here..... In Volume 7 of Crystal Prescriptions, Hall takes the reader on a journey through crystal essences — what they are, how they work, and how to make them. She gently and clearly encourages the reader to create essences themselves and walks them through that process with examples and useful tips. There is also lots of advice about how to best choose and prepare your crystal(s) when making essences, and also how to choose essences and then take them when needed. The information here is vast and detailed; Hall covers chakras, colours, auras, astrology, and astral magic as well as a number of emotional, spiritual, and practical uses for crystal essences. She also offers advice as to which crystals are best made into essences via an indirect method so as to limit their toxicity (as some crystals are naturally toxic to humans and animals, but safe to use as an essence if prepared correctly). The main section of the book is an A-Z guide matching matching specific crystal essences with specific needs or intentions — e.g. essences for emotional and mental healing, for protection, for past life work, for abundance. and so on. Hall does not shy away from more difficult subject matter, either, and includes essences for use in addiction, trauma, and other areas. The reference material and recommended reading sections are good, too. The only chapter I found difficult was the chapter on essences for physiological symptoms and conditions; at this time, the impact of essences on physiological is less well understood, and — speaking as a Flower Essence Therapist — we cannot make any claims as to their use or validity in this area. While I have personally experienced benefits from essences with regard to certain physical conditions, I have found that the essences help as mental and emotional coping strategies in relation to (say) physical pain or illness. Therefore, I would be wary about this section of the book, but I can understand where the author is coming from here, especially when I take into account the impact of crystals as a separate holistic healing modality in their own right. I am not saying this section is wrong, because advances in holistic and orthodox health are being made all the time, but — speaking at the time of reading — I would treat it cautiously. All in all, this is a valuable and useful guide to a different method of using crystals which may be new to many readers. It’s nice to see essences handled so professionally and clearly, with so much respect and understanding. Well recommended. ~ Heather K Veitch (Reviewer), NetGalley
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars. Another fantastic crystal healing book by Judy Hall. I think I've read most of them now and really enjoy each one. This one focuses on how to create your own essences from healing crystals which should enable you to fulfill your true potential. Each section tells us which crystals to use and how to care for them. Always insightful, bursting with information and I love making up the prescriptions. ~ Kirsty White (Reviewer), NetGalley
I've read other volumes by this author before, and this book is equally as informative. Charts were helpful, and even though I thought myself fairly knowledgable about a few crystals, I still learned a great deal about crystals and how they can be used. I would recommend this book for anyone trying to learn more about how they can help themselves stay balanced and healthy. ~ Carolyn McBride (Reviewer) , NetGalley
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars. This is a very thorough book leading up to making essences with crystals, even including going into detail about different ways to cleanse and charge your crystals and how to decide which to choose. She also discusses grounding yourself prior, timing of making and using them, and multiple methods that can be used to make them. There are also sections on dowsing, chakras, astrology, and various charts and lists of when to use crystals for certain conditions, disorders, moods, addictions, etc. If you’re new to crystals, I would read some beginner books first before delving into the essences. The author does a good job with explaining some basics, but it would be helpful to have somewhat of an understanding in their uses in general first as this may seem a bit much at first. It may also be helpful to get a basic understanding of chakras, grounding, and intuition as this book gets pretty in-depth with all of those plus. It’s a great book, though, for someone ready to take their crystal practice into a more advanced form to get the most they can out of them. ~ Michelle Reeves (Reviewer), NetGalley
This is a wonderful, easy to follow book. It’s beautiful to read and very informative. ~ Cennin Thomas (Reviewer), NetGalley
Really nice to see the type of charts (for crystal essences - into different categories). Other topics are also introduced. ~ Alexandra Roth (Reviewer), NetGalley
I've always been a fan of Judy Hall's work. Being an avid reader of the Crystal Bible 1 & 2. I love how easily she breaks down the working with crystals. This book does not disappoint. It was extremely informative. I eagerly read this book in one sitting. I highly recommend this book. Rating: 5 out of 5 stars ~ Christina Blake (Reviewer), NetGalley
Many readers are probably aware of flower essences and how they work, for the purposes of holistic healing. Well, this book looks at way the essence of crystals can be distilled and preserved in water, in an alcohol-based medium. Further, there are instruction on how this might be done at home, using the right products and media. Crystals here are said to allow the body to realign itself holistically, thus preventing or treating a multitude of ailments. The writer does, however, remind her readers that much also depends on the attitude of its practitioners. A lack of faith, for example won't help, though presumably those reading this will tend not to be too sceptical here. There is no doubt, however, that any budding crystal healer will have no lack of choice in choosing which crystals will be right for them to use. ~ Lynda Stevens (Reviewer), NetGalley
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars. I found this book a complete guide, very descriptive of the crystals and how can they be used. Is easy to understand and very detailed information on which steps to use from cleaning to dowsing. Definitely will buy this Book and I recommend it to everyone, from those ones who are beginners to the people who are advanced in meditation. A great book to keep close to you. ~ Anais Diak (Reviewer), NetGalley
This is a great book for the beginner and the more experienced crystal user out there. Written in plain English and sectioned off into chapters and subheadings that mean you can locate stuff easily enough when you want to just jump into a section...... a good instructional manual. ~ Tara Keating , NetGalley
Judy Hall is back with another Crystal Prescriptions volume this time delving into the world of crystal essences. Similar to flower essences, crystal essences capture the vibrational frequency of a crystal through various means, imprinting spring water with their codes. When ingested, crystal essences work on a persons astral and physical health to bring about healing of various issues, be it illness, chakra imbalances, emotional/mental rebalancing, stress release, or space clearing. All vibrational remedies assist the body in coming back to equilibrium which is what is commonly referred to as self-healing.....There isn’t anything that was left uncovered in yet another handy dandy crystal textbook by the crystal expert herself, Judy Hall. No matter where you are on your crystal journey, this volume will serve as an invaluable resource, providing you with information that cannot be found in other books. It doesn’t matter if you aren’t interested in making crystal essences or if you are an experienced crystal healer, there will be new information that will be revealed in this concise easy to follow guide. ~ Tanja Flanjak , NetGalley
I will premise this by saying that I read this book cover to cover in one sitting. Normally I feel that this is more of a book that you would dip in and out of as you needed it. I thought that I knew a lot about crystals going into this book but after reading it I realise that I didn’t know much at all. This is not just an A-Z book of crystals and how to use them like I was expecting, it goes into so much more detail than that. ~ Christina Conn, NetGalley
Judy turns the magic and mystery of crystal essences into an everyday accessible tool.

Essences can literally change your life and with this comprehensive guide and Judy’s inspiring and empowering words, you now have this knowledge and power at your fingertips. ~ Jeni Powell, Crystal Energy Master and Teacher, founder: The Crystal Balance Company
Crystal Prescriptions Vol.7 is a valuable book that will enable you to embark on the adventure of discovery of making essences from crystals yourself, a journey that may lead you beyond that which is known, into a world whose horizons have yet to be glimpsed…a journey well ‘worth the candle’. There are a few rare beings who shine like a beacon and do actually know what they are talking about, and one such rare soul is Judy Hall. ~ David Eastoe, founder of Petaltone Essences
