How the Healing Properties of Metals, Gemstones, Colors, and Aromas

Ayurveda teaches that everything in existence is imbued with the energy and intelligence of Universal Consciousness. That is because all forms of matter, organic and inorganic, are simply the outer manifestations of this most subtle creative energy. Matter is the trapped light of consciousness. The vital force of life flows from the universal source, the essence of all matter, and manifests in the myriad forms and phenomena of nature.

Ayurvedic medicine makes use of almost everything in natural and in daily life, including food, breathing, exercise, meditation, relationship, yoga and massage, as well as regulated daily and seasonal routines. It also uses thousands of herbs and herbal formulas.

For medical purpose , metals are traditionally processed to be taken internally in small doses, after undergoing rigorous and extensive purification to negate any toxic effects upon the body's vital organs.The following recommendations are safe, as they do not involve ingestion of the actual metal.


Copper alleviates excess kapha and reduces fat. It is good tonic for the liver,spleen, and lymphatic system and helps in curing anemia. To treat obesity as well as liver and spleen disorders, throughly wash some copper pennies and boil them in quart of water or boil the quart of water in a copper vessel. until half the water remains. Take 2 teaspoons of this copper water 3 times a day for a month. It is also helpful to buy a copper drinking glass, fill it every night with pure water and drink the water in the morning.


Gold is strengthening to the nervous system and the heart, improves memory and intelligence, and increase stamina. It is also good for week lungs. Gold can be helpful for students' pre-exam tension, for arthritis, and for heart arrhythmia.
The energy of gold may be harnessed by preparing gold medicated water. Use pure gold(24 karat) such as a gold band. Place the gold into 2 cups of water, and boil until 1 cup evaporates. Take 1 teaspoon of this gold water 2 or 3 times a day to energize the heart, strengthen mental faculties, and awaken pure awareness.
You can also make golden rice. While cooking rice, place a piece of gold in the rice pot and cook as usual. When the rice is finished, remove the gold before serving.
NOTE:Gold has heating properties and should be used sparingly by individuals with pitta constitution.


Silver has cooling properties and is beneficial for treating excess pitta. Silver increases strength and stamina and s thus helpful for balancing vata. Emaciation, chronic fever and weakness after fever, heartburn, inflammatory conditions of the intestines, and profuse menstrual bleeding may all be helped by silver. Silver is antiseptic, antibacterial, and disinfectant. Make silver water following the above directions of r gold water, and take 1 teaspoon 2 or 3 times a day. Drink warm milk heated in a silver vessel to build up strength and stamina.


This metal is beneficial for bone marrow, bone tissue, liver and spleen. It increases the production of red blood cells and helps to cure anemia. Iron also strengthens muscle and nerve tissues and is rejuvenating. For extra iron, try cooking in cast iron in the system is harmful, so be careful about using it. Although women during their menstruating years may be iron-deficient and may benefit from additional iron, very few men in Western society need extra iron. An exception might be longtime strict vegetarians.


Gems and precious stones contain healing energies that can be activated by wearing them as ornaments, such as rings or necklaces, or by placing them in a water overnight and drinking the water the following day. Gems enliven the vital energy centers in the body(the chakra) and have a direct influence on vata, pitta, and kapha. They may be used to pacify or activate specific organs of the body, or to enhance or neutralize the effects of particular planets in the person's astrological birth chart.
Before we go into the effect of specific gems and stones, here are a few important general points.
Gems tend to absorb the qualities and energy vibrations of their owners. It is beneficial to purify any stone before using it. Soaking it for  two days in saltwater or milk should be sufficient. This will not harm the stone.
When you wear a gemstone, it should touch the skin through a small window in the setting, so that the subtle energies of the stone can interact directly with the energies of the body.
Where you wear the stone is important. Here are some recommendations.

  • diamond-ring finger
  • pearl-little finger
  • red coral-ring finger
  • emerald-little finger
  • opal-ring finger
  • yellow sapphire-index finger
  • blue sapphire-middle finger

Ayurveda generally recommends that rings be worn on the right hand, though in the West, if someone wants to wear their wedding ring on the left hand to conform with tradition, that is all right.
Processed or chemically treated stones may not have the same healing energy. It is best to get authentic, unprocessed. clean stones without a flaw or crack. When you are considering buying a stone, be sure to use a magnifying glass to examine it for cracks or imperfections.
Stones should be 3 to 5 karats if possible, but a 1-karat diamond is large enough. A stone that is too small will not produce much of an effect.

  1. I am wearing a Blue sapphire in my left hand third finger , when i wore this i haven't followed any rituals like you have mentioned in this article. it is about a week when i bought blue sapphire online ,can i do the rituals now by removing it and wear it again ?

  2. one of the things I've learned over years of being instructed by various ritualists and gem people, that focusing on physical awareness is helped by the stone you are noticing and using. Just wearing the stone calls attention to you body. The most effective thing we can do is to have a conversation with the body about the qualities of the stone we're experimenting with. You can do this in writing or just speaking. The art of communicating with the body using healing tools like stones will make you aware of what you want for yourself deep down and that is areal gift.
