Before you embark on this undertaking it's important to ensure you're using cards from a cleansed deck. Ideally, choose a deck dedicated to healing work, one that resonates with your heart and soul.

There are three methods to craft your Tarot essence:

1. Direct Water Infusion

Place a glass of pure spring water or filtered tap water directly over the chosen Tarot card for a minimum of 15 minutes. If charged by direct sunlight, 15 minutes is long enough; otherwise, let your intuition guide the duration. You can enhance this process by placing a clear quartz crystal (or a crystal matching the card's energy) in the glass for simultaneous programming.

2. Submerged Card

When creating an essence for more than one person, place the Tarot card in a glass or jar inside a bowl filled with spring or filtered tap water. Do not place the card directly in the water. It is basically a jar inside another jar. Allow the water to absorb the card's energy for at least 15 minutes before consumption.

3. Mother Tincture

To make an essence that lasts over time, creating a 'Mother tincture' is the way to go. This is a simplified version of how I make my Archetypal Tarot Essences. Begin with the first method, then transfer the essence to a dropper bottle filled halfway with vodka, brandy, or rum as a preservative. Shake well. From this mother tincture, fill 10 ml dropper bottles with about a third of your chosen preservative, two-thirds spring water, and a couple of drops from the Mother tincture. Shake well, and your essence is ready for use. Typically, a 10 ml bottle provides a two-week course if taken as two drops (in water or directly under the tongue) three times daily.


Harnessing Lunar Magic

Look at the lunar phases when crafting your remedy. The most potent essences are often created on the night of the full moon, aligning with the card's corresponding astrological sign. If possible, let the water absorb the card's essence overnight. Certain lunar energy cards, such as The Moon, The Queen of Cups, and The High Priestess, thrive under moonlight. Trust your intuition in this lunar dance.

A Word of Wisdom

All cards can be used for essences, but approach some with caution if you have a challenging relationship with particular cards, especially some of the Swords suits. While Tarot essences can aid in healing conditions associated with these energies, be prepared for a healing crisis. If working with a challenging card, consider partnering with someone so you can support each other in navigating the transformative journey.
