Flower essences are among the many products we offer.
Not sure what a flower essence is? Well, put simply, they are water (preserved in brandy) that has been charged and infused with the energy of specific flowers. This energetic water is then used to work on energy centers (chakras) and emotional/spiritual issues.
They are not essential oils and, when made properly, have no smell (except for a subtle brandy note).
Flower essences are a fabulous way to enlist our plant allies help. But, help with what? The depends entirely on what the various flowers can offer…
I have fabulous Purple Malllow that works wonders on grief (primarily from loss) and softening hardened hearts. We also offer a Queen Anne’s Lace that is great for spiritual emergencies and gently opening your third eye. Or there is Wild Blackberry, which helps us transform ideas into reality!
This is just to name a few. For our complete list of the essences we offer click here.
So, now that you know there is (are) a flower essence, simple or blend, with you in mind, how do you go about utilizing these amazing energies? The reality is there there is are as many ways to use a flower essence as there are flower essences!
The most traditional ways to flower essences are to add 2-3 drops to a glass of water or place 2-3 under you tongue.
What if I don’t want to take it internally? That is not a problem! You don’t have to consume flower essences for them to be effective. The key is to remember that it is a lovely bottle of energy infused water. Whatever liquid just one drop encounters will then become infused with the energy.
With that in mind, make your own essence spray bottle (any size is fine, but I prefer a smaller backpack or purse sized bottle, fill most of the way with spring water, add a splash or two of brandy (or vodka), finish with 3-7 (or what feels right to you) drops of your chosen essence or blend. Put the cap on and shake your bottle (preferably in a clockwise motion), the agitation assists the activation and infusing process, so don’t worry about messing it up, just know that it will work.
Use your spray bottle by spraying yourself (1-3 sprays) as needed, this is great on hot Summer days (use personal bubble yarrow for trips to crowded beaches, parks or fairs!). You can use aloe juice for a nice skin treat.
You can also use this same process for roller bottles , fill most of the bottle with spring water, a splash of brandy, a few drops of essence, and shake. Use this by rolling on your wrists, neck and other pulse points.
Speaking of pulse points, you can simply place a drop or two from your bottle on each wrist.
My personal favorite is adding a few drops to my bath water. Just a few drops is all it takes to infuse and transform a tub full of water!
These are just a few possibilities, there really isn’t a wrong way to use an essence, just what is right for you. The most important part, know it will work.
So get an essence, or a blend, that speaks to you and try it out.
