Draw strength from the crystals!
First of all, you should avoid any crystals that contain lead or copper, such as malachite, azurite, chalcopyrite, galena, amazonite, mohawkite, or turquoise. Aluminum is also found in some gemstones and should be avoided. These include aquamarine, garnet, labradorite, ruby, sapphire and all other stones from the “beryl group”: bixbyite, heliodor, goshenite, emerald and morganite.
That doesn’t mean you can’t use the stones mentioned above at all, but you can’t put them directly into the water.

If you want to use a crystal that is not mentioned in the list, then you can use an indirect method of water loading. Simply place the crystal around the water bottle instead of putting it directly into the water.
A notice: It is generally accepted that most stones in the “quartz” and “citrine” families are safe to place directly in water.

Make crystal water yourself
Here are the steps to charge Crystal Water…
Take the time to rinse the crystal by placing it under running water or by gently scrubbing it with a toothbrush. It’s okay to use a little soap as long as you rinse the stone completely. You may also want to “clean” it by leaving it in the sun for a few hours. It doesn’t have to be direct sunlight. Once your crystal is clean, take the time to charge it with your intentions. What do you want to use this particular stone for? Which of its properties would you like to benefit from? It’s okay if you take full advantage of all its properties and the benefits it offers.
Charge crystals and gems in the sun
Experts recommend using glass jars with lids. For obvious reasons, it’s always better to use spring water and avoid tap water. Only use tap water if you have no alternative and cannot go to the store to buy natural or spring water. It is debatable whether distilled water should ever be used, with the answer tending to be in the negative.
You can put the charged stones in the water…
Not only do you leave the glass jug filled with spring water in the sunlight, but also leave the stones or crystals you have chosen around the jug or on the lid. You only need to put them inside after at least three or four hours in the sunlight. Stones that are unsuitable for direct water charging should not be put in at all.
…or arrange them around the glass jar
A notice: The stones you put in the bottle should not remain in the bottle permanently. Leave them inside for a while and then take them out.
Try to visualize in your mind’s eye bright lights falling from the crystals through the jar or lid into the water. It helps to meditate for a few minutes.

Some additional tips for charging water with crystals
You can also use moonlight instead of sunlight to charge the water and stones – especially on new moon or full moon nights. Ideally, wait until the new moon to charge the crystal water if you want to use it to bring something new into your life. Full moon charging is ideal when the intention is to increase something in your life, such as positive energy or happiness. If you can’t wait for a full moon or new moon, do the sunlight method.

Write down your intention and the crystals will help you with it
As you set your intention, you might find it helpful to write it on a small piece of paper, and then tape that paper to the glass.
You can drink the charged water or pour it into the bathtub and bathe with it
There are several methods of charging bath water with crystal energy. You can either pour a few drops of the charged water from the bottle into your tub and mix it with the bath water, or you can actually add the stones to the tub. If you want, you can also hold them in your hands. Sit and relax for at least 10 minutes to soak up the energy. Say your intention over and over like a mantra. Don’t forget to take out the bricks before unplugging!
Combine different crystals
You can certainly add more than one stone to your water as long as they go well together. Carnelian and clear quartz is a good combination if you want to be successful in the workplace. Carnelian will give you a boost of energy and creativity, and the clear quartz will boost your focus. Lapis Lazuli and Rose Quartz are a good combination for any crystal water elixir used to find a new love or to strengthen an existing relationship.
