Master the ancient art of vibrational stone medicine to heal and awaken.


i know you've been there

in one of those fated moments where you find a special stone.

Other times, a special stone finds you.

You feel an immediate bond and hope to deepen our relationship.

For thousands of years, ancient healers have placed stones and crystals in water, creating stone elixirs, as a way to deepen that bond.‚Äč

When you want to know a stone, elixirs open the stone inside of you.

This is a gateway to limitless possibilities.

Stone elixirs are the most potent and underutilized vibrational medicine on Earth.

You can now make them at home in small batches, safely and effectively, every time.

After almost a year of closed doors, we are reopening this course to new students again!


I absolutely love this course because it is so SIMPLE!!

All you need is a crystal, water and a holding vessel.

I feel confident about starting now because of the information you are sharing.

The rest is up to me to listen to my intuition together with your lessons, a nice balance!

~ A.A., Making Stone Elixirs & Formularies Student

This course is just amazing!

It left me feeling a sense of security on how
to safely create, store and administers elixirs.

I have always had a personal
relationship with all my stones.

This is a life changing experience for me regarding my health, healing and my personal spiritual journey of transformation.

~ S.S., Making Stone Elixirs & Formularies Student

I happily listened to this course twice!

I envision an even deeper relationship with my stones and now. I can't wait to get new ones, like watermelon tourmaline.

As a healer, I will now notice more when someone expresses patterns that are ancestral or otherwise long term and get curious about what stone I can offer to move them forward.

~ Lorin Purifoy, Owner Purifoy Spirit Remedies and Sacred Ways Apothecary


There is so much wisdom, honesty and vulnerability in the way Sarah presents this information - it's truly special.

I've been working with herbal medicines for years now and this course has opened me up to a whole new world of Earth medicine for me.

The stone and plant combinations were fascinating and really inspiring. The different methods for making elixirs all made so much sense. The guidance on how to create formularies was so helpful. It was very engaging and inspiring to see stones from these perspectives. I just hadn't connected these dots before.

Your courses are like no other courses I have ever taken. Thank you.

special course bonuses!

Bonus #1: Pearl, Sulfur and Charoite Elixirs for Healing and Higher States eBook

In this eBook, I'll share 3 elixir recipes that were game-changers for me, my family, and my patients over the past year. These are recipes you will never forget. They are outlined clearly for you with descriptions of exactly how to use them and when to make them. A friend of mine texted me after making an elixir from this book and said, "Sarah! You were not kidding about the power of those elixirs!" They work! But, truly, the whole point of sharing my own personal formulas is to give you a stepping stone (or a stepping charoite) to start writing your own.

Value - $97

Bonus #2: Full Reference Guide to the Course

I rarely give handouts because I believe that taking your own notes is an important part of learning. The process creates your very first personal connection with the knowledge. And... because this course covers thousands of years of practical knowledge, let's supplement your own notes with a thorough guide. In your reference guide, you'll find summaries of the different methods for making elixirs, guidance on length of treatment and dosages, lists of unsafe and safe stones, and more. You'll be able to easily print this out and keep it on hand for your reference for the rest of your medicine journey. 

Value - $297

Bonus #3: A 10% off coupon code for the entire Elixir Kit Collection at The Clarity Crystal Shop

To help get you started and to get your creative juices flowing, we have several elixir kits to choose from - all of which contain 3 different highly energetic natural crystals that will create potent stone elixirs. Try out the new Records of the Past Kit, which includes jet, copal and ammonite. Or, choose the Love Heals All Kit and receive watermelon tourmaline, red zircon and fluorescent ruby. We also carry the elixir-making tools that I speak about in the training. These will transform your practice, making things easier, safer, and longer lasting. There are over 300 crystals in this collection! We created our shop for our students, so you're our V.I.P. These are truly the most potent crystals in the world. Everything we carry is all completely natural.

Value - Varies

Bonus #4: How to Work with Dyed, Heat-Treated or Synthetically Altered Stones Mini Training

I've been all over the world for gems shows. I've seen mashed up blueberries used as dyes, food additive glues used as stabilizers, and even spray paint used as a color enhancer! If you've been drawn to stones for a while, you probably have some synthetically altered stones in your collection. Are they safe to work with? What do these synthetic treatments do to the spirit of the stone? What specific minerals are almost always heat treated? How can you tell if something has been treated? Can we give these stones a new beginning? This is a whole new layer to sort through that our ancient ancestors didn't have to contend with. In this bonus mini-training, you'll get some advice that will help you navigate these blueberry waters.

Value - $197

Bonus #5: An Invitation to our graduates only private social media community

Time to connect. And not only with Making Stone Elixirs and Formularies graduates like your soon-to-be self. But, with the entire Upper Clarity graduates community. You can pop in and ask questions, which is so useful. You won't feel alone with your stone school books. And, all of these graduates are stone people! Rock people! Crystal nerds. They are healers, geology people, medicine-makers and artists. Ask them anything- where to get special stones, where they went rockhounding, how they made their coconut and lapis lazuli massage salve - whatever it is, kind people will be there to connect. 

Value - Priceless!
This experience opened the doors for old friends of mine to step back into my life.

The flower devas, the trees - all wanting to be a part of my work with the stones.
My communication with the animal kingdom opened back up as well.

It's like I walked out into a big old family reunion.
Flowers, trees, rocks and animals - all of my favorite things!
The teachings and quotes Sarah shared about the true science of water were worth the entire investment in this course alone!

~ J.B., Holistic Veterinarian

Even if you intuitively feel the radiant synergy between stones and water,

you might still be wondering:

Is making stone elixirs an ancient healing art, or is this something new?

Yes, it's a very old practice mostly stemming from ancient China. The great thing about this course is that it bridges the old wisdom with the new vibrational medicine discoveries.

How do I really make these work? Aren't there energetic (magical) factors in making medicine that truly transforms people?

The beauty and poetry of Chinese Medicine and its relationship with life, qi, power and magic will all be explored. This could be your most important question.

Is this like herbal medicine? Or flower essences? Or both? How do I combine stones with what I'm already making?

Yes! This is one of the most exciting parts - when you know how stones are different, and how to make stone elixirs, you can alchemize many different Earth medicines. Witchin' in the Kitchen in full effect.

How do I figure out the right dosage? How do I create a handy apothecary? What are all the clinical tips?

These questions are all answered by a practitioner with fifteen years of real clinical experience.

How do I make these safely? Aren't there harmful metals in some stones?

Yes, there are. You do need a guide in this work. This course will guide you into complete understanding of heavy metals and how you can make any stone elixir with 100% full safety.

I'm not a professional practitioner. Is this course for me?

Yes. One of our specialties here at Upper Clarity is making stone medicine accessible to everyone. Energy healers, alchemists, herbalists, and your everyday medicine-person of the household have always studied here and have had great experiences.

I was hooked the entire course.

This was beyond anything I could have ever imagined it would be. It was not only the information being shared, it was the way that you shared it that made learning so fun and engaging.

This teaching alone will change the course of my life moving forward in how I relate and form relationships with everything in existence.

As I practice embodying this, things are beginning to slowly shift, mainly internally but externally as well.

Cultivating my relationship with stones has already brought so much joy and life-force energy into my life, I get so giddy around them. As though they are the very best friends I did not know have always been there for me until now. I honestly get emotional from that realization.

I know within my body that this connection can only deepen and strengthen as we continue to nurture our relationship with one another.

This course has also opened up potentials I had not even acknowledged prior.

I can feel ideas stewing in my creative cauldron of how I might work with the stones to be in greater service of the whole.

I am not currently a practitioner of any kind but have long felt a calling to be.

I believe there will soon come a moment where I will release my current profession of being a nanny and jump into the void of the unknown.

This resonates deep in my bones!

I've gotta go make more elixirs!

This was SO well done.

Seriously, This was so much more than I expected.
It was wonderful.

~ L. Greiner, Licensed Acupuncturist and Stone Medicine Practitioner

Looking at stones though this lens is most extraordinary!

There is an opening of my heart happening in an old, yet new, way.

I've deeply loved the stones for a while now, though it's been a long time coming for me to be with the water and stones in this new 'stepped-up' way. 

This was so heart-opening and enlivening.

The whole course spoke deeply to safety, allowing me to step forward to begin.

I'm so inspired to bring more ritual into my life.

~ N.P., Crystal Healer
