Is There a Difference Between Essense and Elixirs in Regard to Crystals?

Can you tell me the difference between an essence and an elixir? or are they one and the same? Some books refer to elixirs and the one book I am reading now talks about making an essence with crystals and water.

Dear D,

I must share the standard disclaimer that I am not a doctor and cannot give out medical advice.  Crystals for healing should be used as a compliment to other therapies and not as a replacement for regular medical care.  

Elixir and essence are often confused in regards to crystals. 

An essence is defined as the basic, real and invariable nature of a thing or its significant individual feature or features. It's that one thing or quality that defines the character of the subject matter. So, in regards to crystals and stones this would be its vibrational energy. 

An Elixir is defined as a magical or medicinal potion comprised of water, oil or alcohol or a combination there of, distilled from  the essence of chemical, mineral or plant material.  An Elixir can combine many essences. 

Basically anything  that is a derivative of Water, oil or alcohol enhanced with the vibration or essence of a crystal is an Elixir.
