I was touched… it really was a beautiful bottle. But I was totally skeptical about it actually doing anything.
I mean, I’ve never been into crystals and all that.
Lydia’s encouragement led to me decide to tough it out another few weeks and see if things got better. I took the Gem Bottle with me every day, as a reminder of her support.
Here’s the crazy thing… it actually WORKED! I didn’t expect it to, but it did.
Just holding the bottle in my hands had a calming effect.
Having it near me on my desk seemed to settle my nerves, and after the first week I noticed that whenever I started to panic I’d instinctively reach for my Gem Bottle and take a drink.
On really hard days, I added herbal tea to the bottle and it felt especially soothing.
So I looked up the “healing properties” of amethyst… and here’s what it said:
“Amethyst is a natural sedative that reduces stress and tension, calms impatience, regulates mood swings, and alleviates aggression, rage, fear, and anxiety. Dissolves negativity and alleviates melancholy and despair.”
