What Are Flower Essences?
Flower Essences Deliver the Balance of Nature to You in a Simple and Economical Way. Our flower essence concentrates come in convenient 1oz dropper bottles containing mother essence of the flower, pure vitalized water, premium vodka for preservation and a natural pear flavor. Since a single dose can be as little as one drop on the tongue, your concentrates can last for years.
Our mother essence is made from a bowlful of carefully chosen, freshly opening flowers, floating in pure water in the sun for several hours. This process allows the water to capture the energy pattern of the plant. The spent flowers are discarded and the remaining mother essence is preserved with vodka and stored in glass out of direct sunlight.
How Do Flower Essences Work? Flower essences are made from plants. Since ancient times plants have been known to hold healing patterns, and these patterns can serve us on different levels. Most of the plant medicines we are familiar with are extracted from the physical level of the plant and heal the physical level of the body. For example, the plant compounds in an herbal medicine are designed to affect your physical, bio-chemical health.
The healing properties that flower essences use come from a different level – the flower’s energy pattern. This plant energy, a subtle electrical vibration, is captured when the flowers are placed in the bowl of water on a sunny day. Water is an excellent conductor of electricity and holds the pattern well. Since the healing pattern of the flower essence is energetic, it works directly with your subtle energy body. When the essence comes into contact with your tongue or skin, it instantly delivers its balancing pattern to your energy body.
Essences are like good friends. Each one helps you in a unique way. And like friends, who are helpful in different ways with different people, flower essences are distinct for each individual and each situation. One person might take “Deep Calm” during a tense and stressful period and feel peaceful, while another might take the same essence and feel more energy to work on a relationship they’ve been avoiding. The essences all have unique effects, which depend on the makeup of each individual for their flowering.
Balance works both ways. Essences balance energy. Nature is basically a balancing force. As you walk through nature, you might notice how many different natural elements are balanced magnificently together into a whole. This is what nature does. Since flower essences are bottled nature patterns, they will always be affecting you in a balancing manner. So if you are over-active in an area (like the person above who was feeling stressed and tense), they nudge you back down toward normal. If you are under-active in an area (like the person above who needed to work on their relationship), they will balance your energy upwards. The energy pattern of a flower essence will work to bring either extreme back to normal.
Balance works on all levels. Because flower essences are energy patterns, they can affect you on all levels: physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. It all depends on what you need, what your intent is, and what you are open to.
Be sensitive to what type of healing you need. Flower essences are an energy medicine. There are times when energy medicine works best and there are times when physical, emotional and mental therapies work best. Develop your discernment so that over time you can more effectively use all your resources. Flower essences are not a replacement for necessary medical attention.
Flower essences can be used with other therapies. Many professionals use flower essence therapy to enhance their own systems of care: physicians and nurses, psychologists and marriage family therapists, acupuncturists, chiropractors, massage therapists, and more. You can use essences yourself to support work done for you by a health professional. For example, try using flower essences before and after your dental appointment.
Flower essences are safe and have no side effects. There are almost no physical components of the plant in a flower essence, so they are completely safe for your physical body. And if you use a flower essence you don’t need, there simply will be no effect mentally, emotionally or spiritually, since that energy is already balanced in you.
If you are sensitive to alcohol, you have several choices. You can add your essences to a hot beverage so the alcohol vaporizes. You can apply your essences topically or add them to a spray bottle and mist the air. You can also contact us to request essences preserved in apple cider vinegar or glycerin.
Flower essences switch on your lights. We all know what it’s like when the lights are out in our body, mind, or spirit. We are unable to move forward with gusto into the day. Our minds can’t get clear. We feel blind to our connection to spirit. Using flower essences can be like turning on your own light switch, feeling peace, clarity and vitality again. And what is that light? It’s you! It’s the feeling of coming back home and lighting up your life.
