Orgone and Orgonite – A Primer
by Zen Gardner
I’ve had many requests for more information about orgone energy and orgonite. I’m going to leave it to the “experts” below to help explain the background and fundamental precepts. There is ample information available on the web that’s well worth looking at. As I’ve said before, it’s a subject best experienced once you have the general idea. To anyone sensitive to energy or intuitively inclined it’s immediately apparent that this technology has something to it.
One thing that strikes me about my forays into the orgonite community is the inherent intelligent coherence and understanding of the big picture with those involved in this wonderfully proactive field. See for yourself, but I’ve found a sense of well informed balance and clarity that’s quite refreshing.
What’s interesting to note is that while there are people who do sell orgonite and have amazing products they’ve come up with you can purchase if you choose, their passion is such that they are the first to tell you how to make it for yourself. Search and you’ll find hundreds of self help videos in addition to many articles on how to do it. It’s extremely easy and a great project for families, with all kinds of spiritual lessons built in for children as well – who seem to readily pick up on the vibrational changes and get a real kick out of making it.
I’ve included a section at the bottom on how to make your own just to make it clear and easy.
The Key Is Empowerment.
If this technology is even faintly in the right direction it’s a giant step towards a better world. If it is what it portends to be, it needs to get out there and on a massive scale. This is something for you to decide for yourself. At the very least the use of crystals and intention is powerful unto itself.
I assume since you’re reading this article this subject has intrigued you to some extent. I’m not going to push it, I don’t have all the empirical data or wealth of experience on the subject. But others have far greater experience with this and I want the below explanations to hopefully provide answers to some of the basic questions you may have.
To be honest, it surprised me how much this resonated with me when I first came across this technology. I have a scientific mind, am essentially skeptical, while at the same time I’m very inquisitive and spiritually inclined and willing to give just about anything a serious look and “feel”. I’ve been through enough hoaxes to where I’ve got one foot securely on the brake while I’m still willing to look into just about anything that has a chance of merit.
We do need all the help we can get and it ain’t gonna come from “them”, our abusive, disempowering, truth-withholding rulers.
1. What Is Orgone?
In 1948, a book entitled _The_Cancer_Biopathy_ was published with little fanfare and even less popularity. Written by Wilhelm Reich, a psychologist and scientist, the book explored his ever-expanding knowledge of chronic sexual starvation and it’s possible link to the disease of cancer. This topic caused it to be shunned in a world that would have rather not talked about orgasms and sexual deviancy. However, hidden in the pages was a profound discovery, that of orgone. While Reich’s complete work is far beyond the scope of this overview, some background information is useful in determining just what orgone is and what it can do.
In his studies, Reich had observed decomposing organic matter at very high magnification. He discovered small, blue energy vesicles which he termed bions. They held very interesting properties. They emitted mostly ultraviolet light, which hurt the eyes and caused the skin to tan if one was exposed to them in large quantities for extended periods of time. They also had the effect of delaying, if not completely stopping the infestation of decomposing organic matter by bacteria and paramecium.
Reich found that this exuded energy was not confined to the vicinity of bions, but evident everywhere. It was attracted to and absorbed by organic material. Metallic substances also absorbed the energy, but quickly reflected it again. Using these properties, Reich built “accumulators” using alternating layers of metal and organic materials. These accumulators were helpful in Reich’s treatment of sick individuals. Diseases, including cancer, often went into remission with treatment of an individual in an accumulator. Even plants, in complete darkness, would develop chlorophyll and prosper inside an accumulator. Because of the beneficial qualities of this energy in treating patients who had problems achieving an orgasm, he coined the term “orgone.”
The life-enhancing qualities of orgone energy tend to make one think of ki or chi that martial artists talk about. Orgone does have many qualities similar to ki. Eastern Medicine has long believed that diseases can be caused by a lack or blockage of ki in the body. Enabling the ki to flow correctly allows the body to heal itself. Reich wrote on breaking down barriers in the body using orgone in order to create a healing response. His cancer patients did not take medicine or have the tumors removed, they were treated with doses of orgone energy higher than normal, which then allowed the body to heal itself. From these similarities, it can be surmised that orgone energy is the same as ki life-energy.
Similar to ki, Reich found that there is both positive orgone (POR) and negative, or deadly orgone (DOR). DOR has a higher vibrational state than POR, one that is over-excited. It causes a person to feel anxious and possibly get sick if exposed too long. There is also a vibrational state of orgone that is lower than POR, which is called oranur due to its inert state. Oranur is more rare, but also detrimental to one’s health. Anything electrical produces DOR to a varying degree. High powered microwave transmitters and nuclear reactors are some of the biggest DOR producing creations.
Orgone energy so far has been described by what it does and its similarities to ki. However, at the present time, that is as far as the description can be taken. One can describe the effects of gravity or magnetism, but no one currently knows the source of these phenomenon. In a similar manner, orgone energy must wait for a more complete understanding of the universe to be completely explained.
2. A Brief History of Orgone Research
Dr. Reich determined that stacking alternating layers of fiberglass (an organic substance) and steel wool (an inorganic substance) would actually attract and collect orgone/etheric energy of both the life-beneficial positive form (which Reich called “OR” or “POR“) and harmful negative etheric energy (“deadly orgone” or “DOR“).
He constructed large boxes called orgone accumulators or “oracs” using this simple layering principle and was able to successfully heal his patients of various ailments, including various forms of cancer, by having them sit inside the box for periods of time.
In 1986, scientists at the University of Marburg, Germany published the results of a blind study1 which showed that 30-minute orgone accumulator treatments caused consistent, positive psycho-physiological effects not seen with the all-fiberglass box used for a control, stating “the results received in our investigation furnish evidence for the assumption that the physical properties of the orgone accumulator and its psychophysiological efficacy on human organisms, postulated by Reich and his associates, factually exist.”
Reich’s work was continued in earnest in the 1960′s by more open-minded Russian scientists such as Dr. Nikolai Kozyrev (1908-1983), who also scientifically proved that such unseen energies indeed exist all around us, and who’s Reich-inspired work led to the unfortunate development of practical Soviet military defense applications which utilized principles of so-called “torsion fields” (e.g., etheric energy). Kozyrev’s work, which indeed confirms both Reich’s research and our empirical experiences with orgonite, was classified until the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991.
Following in their footsteps, thousands of Ph.D.-level researchers from both sides of the Iron Curtain spanning multiple generations have continued Kozyrev and Reich’s pioneering work, slowly forcing mainstream Western science to finally, “officially recognize” the concept of a universal, unseen energy medium they call “dark matter,” “vacuum flux” or “zero-point energy,” depending on who you ask. It is commonly understood among orgonite enthusiasts that these are all essentially describing the same thing, which Reich called “orgone”.
The Advancements of Orgonite
Reich built his research lab, dubbed Orgonon, in rural Maine, USA, as this location was at the time very isolated from sources of “deadly orgone,” which his accumulators would collect indiscriminantly. Operating an orgone accumulator near sources of DOR (such as nuclear power plants, radio towers, etc.) has the potential of harming anyone receiving treatment inside it, so geographical location was and is an important factor for orgone accumulator operation.
In 2000, a couple named Don and Carol Croft discovered through some Internet research and empirical observation that mixing catalyzed organic fiberglass resin with inorganic metal shavings, poured into small molds such as paper cups and muffin pans, would produce a substance which would attract etheric energy similarly to Reich’s accumulators.
Carol Croft, gifted with a keen sense of discrete energies, realized the significance of this finding and took it a step further by adding small quartz crystals to the mixture for their ability to efficiently collect, transmute and emit etheric energy. This addition to the resin/metal matrix creates a substance which functions as a self-driven, continuously-operating, highly efficient DOR?POR (negative to positive) energy transmutation factory.
When orgonite is within range of a source of DOR/negative energy, it will efficiently and continuously transform it into POR/positive energy as it is being transmitted, which essentially creates positive energy transmitters out of any and all emitters of harmful negative energy, which are totally defenseless against the effect.
The resin in orgonite shrinks during the curing process, permanently squeezing the quartz crystal inside which creates a well-known piezoelectric effect inside the crystal, meaning its end-points become polarized electrically. It is believed this is also what causes the orgonite to function so effectively as a positive energy generator.
Thus orgonite represents a very significant improvement over Reich’s early work with orgone accumulators, since Reich’s “oracs” attract deadly orgone energy as well as positive and do nothing to transmute it into a purely beneficial form, which orgonite does inherently and continuously.
Within a year of this development, Don began publishing reports of his and his wife’s experiences in, among other things, the tactical deployment of small pieces of orgonite near any and all sources of DOR, or life-negative energy, such as cellphone towers, nuclear power plants, underground bases and natural Earth energy gridlines and vorticies. Don included in his reports the specific life-positive, cleansing, healing, confirming effects they would notice following such “gifting” activities, causing Don to strongly encourage his readers to replicate his efforts in their own communities.
Cloudbusting: Then and Now
In addition to his effective health treatments, Dr. Wilhelm Reich also utilized his advanced knowledge of discrete energies to build and successfully test a weather modification device called a “cloudbuster“, which operated on the principle that clouds are held together by orgone energy, and removing this energy causes clouds to rapidly disintegrate. Reich developed a superior weather prediction model which took into account the otherwise-ignored etheric component of our weather and produced more accurate weather predictions than the popular and incomplete “pressure system” model.
Reich’s cloudbuster consisted of a set of turret-mounted metal pipes connected by rubber tubing to a body of water for energetic grounding which would dissipate clouds by draining the orgone energy holding them together and, with careful and time-consuming effort, significantly alter overall weather patterns, in some cases intentionally causing the complete reversal of drought conditions in the desert in a matter of months.
Reich’s design was proven very effective as intended, but could also be very dangerous if mis-handled. Large amounts of DOR accumulate in the pipes during operation, and even momentary contact with bare skin has caused some operators everything from intense pain to long-term paralysis, simply from brushing past the pipes with a bare leg.
Don Croft has invented a more advanced, effective and safer version of Reich’s cloudbuster called a chembuster which combines the original cloudbuster’s basic operating principles with the advantages of orgonite.
A typical chembuster consists of 6 six-foot copper pipes embedded in a base of orgonite (typically poured in a paint bucket) with double-terminated quartz crystals in the base of each pipe to create an etheric energy vacuum effect which literally sucks the negative energy from the sky within a several mile radius into the orgonite base where it is then transmuted into harmless, beneficial positive energy. Unlike Reich’s cloudbusters, chembusters can be safely left in continuous operation where they will quickly restore and maintain atmospheric energy balance within an area. In drought-stricken regions of the globe, this always occurs in the form of rain sufficient to end the drought conditions. This has been successfully demonstrated in variuos parts of Africa, California and in many other locations around the world by various dedicated individuals.
The infallibly-beneficial nature of orgonite eliminates the need for special training, safety precautions, or rigorous effort to operate a chembuster, since it simply transmutes any negative energy it attracts from the atmosphere while the rest of the device functions as an etheric vortex generator, actively balancing the energy between sky and ground, eliminating smog/air pollution and negatively-charged artificial cloud formations called “chemtrails“, replacing their spreading blanket of poisonous DOR clouds with the deep blue skies and puffy white natural clouds we all remember from childhood.
Detailed instructions for building your own chembuster (which costs about $150 USD using all new materials) can be found in our section on How to Make Orgonite.
The Orgonite Gifting Movement
It has been the experience of many chembuster enthusiasts that the widespread deployment of digital cellular communications towers across the populated areas of the world in the last several years has created a thick blanket of DOR/negative energy which saturates our homes and communities, promotes drought, negativity, fear, etc., and significantly hinders chembuster operation (among many other detrimental effects).
However, it has been widely experienced that these negative effects can be disabled and chembusters can be made to start working properly again simply by tossing or burying small muffin-sized chunks of orgonite called TowerBusters (TB’s) near all the cellphone towers in their area, an increasingly-popular activity which has become known as “gifting”, and is conducted literally all over the world now by thousands of selfless and highly-dedicated individuals and Internet-organized groups.

3. How to Make Orgonite
Basic orgonite is simply fiberglass resin, metal shavings and a quartz crystal, cured in any mold you like. There’s no one “right” shape or size for orgonite, and its range of effect seems to scale linearly with volume, but there are specific, time-tested, widely-used and repeatedly-confirmed effective designs for both personal and field devices which have grown and continue to grow out of the steadfast work of talented and dedicated gifters from around the world. These designs comprise the basic tools of the orgonite gifter as discussed on numerous orgonite Web boards and offered pre-made by many reputable orgonite vendors.
What You’ll Need
Metal Shavings: You don’t want fine metal filings, nor do you want large pieces of metal. Quarter-inch-wide aluminum curls are very common and very effective for use in orgonite, but any kind of copper, iron, brass (including brassed aluminum), bronze, nickel or even steel shavings will work fine. Just bring a bucket and some work gloves to a local machine shop and ask them if you can fill your bucket with metal shavings. Before giving them to you for free, they will probably ask you what it’s for (typically more out of curiosity than anything), so why not tell them? If you don’t feel comfortable explaining orgonite to them, simply tell them about this site, or give them the simplest honest answer you can, such as a “public service,” “art project,” or even “science experiment”. However, you may be surprised what people will understand if you take the time to explain it meaningfully and from the heart.
Quartz Crystals: Any funky, ugly, smokey pieces of quartz will work perfectly for orgonite field devices. You can usually find this grade of quartz crystal very inexpensively at most decent gem and mineral shops, or you can buy quartz online from orgonite-aware vendors at appropriate sizes and grades.
Fiberglass/Epoxy Resin: The most expensive component of orgonite, typically retailing for US$18-$25/gallon at marine supply stores and hardware stores. Any kind of organic resin will work fine, but liquid resin (as opposed to “body fill” paste) has been found to be easiest to work with for creating orgonite. Resin requires a chemical additive called a hardener, typically included if purchased by the gallon, in order to catalyze the curing (hardening) process, which may take from mere hours in hot, arid weather to multiple days in wet, cold weather.
Molds: This depends on the specific type of orgonite device you wish to create, but any mold which can withstand boiling temperatures should work fine. Avoid plastics unless they are oven-safe, as the chemical reaction which occurs during the catalyzation process heats the resin to temperatures which can easily melt normal plastics. Generally, metal molds seem to work best for most purposes, but cheap field devices can also be made from large paper bathroom cups or paper sno-cone cups. Use your imagination!
Other Stuff: You will want a mixing container such as a bucket (preferably with a pouring lip), a wooden stirring stick, some old rags or paper towels for splashes and spills, and a large, flat surface for leaving the orgonite to cure.
Safety: Organic resins emit toxic fumes before and during the curing process, so working in a well-ventilated area such as a backyard or porch/deck is ideal. You may also want to use protective gloves and wear clothing you don’t mind getting catalyzed resin splashed on, as it will go everywhere, especially your first few times pouring. Putting down a tarp first can help tremendously with cleanup, as the hardened resin should pop right off the tarp.
