Race-worthy Gemstone Peach Julep
We’re off to the races. The Kentucky Derby takes place this month, on
May 5–6, 2017. In honor of the
event, consider serving this recipe
to clients for a truly Southern feel.
Making non-alcoholic gemstone
beverages, such as peach juleps, is
a unique and fun way to feed your
inner chakra and enhance your
spa environment. Non-alcoholic
beverages are key here because
alcohol depletes your chakras. While
traditional mint juleps contain
bourbon, this peach julep is a lighter,
spa-friendly version without alcohol.
Watch your clients light up when
you serve them this traditionally
Southern drink with a modern twist.
Quartz and agates are mostly
silicone dioxide (SiO2) and safe to
use in beverages. Select gemstones

• Rose quartz: Love
• Blue lace agate: Angels,

Gemstones must be washed
in warm, soapy water, rinsed
thoroughly and pat dried before
adding to beverages. Remove
gemstones before drinking.
Be careful not to use stones that
are water soluble, such as selenite
and mica or stones that flake and
crumble. Avoid stones with iron or
copper, such as malachite, tiger’s
eye, hematite and pyrite, as they
may be harmful.
Make your beverage and enjoy
within two to four hours.
