What are they, how do they work?  What to expect in a flower essence healing session. 

What Are Flower Essences?


Throughout history, flowers have always been important healers from the botanical kingdom.  They are used in many traditions across the world, by shamans, healers, herbalists and anyone who feels the call.  The blossoming flowers of the plant holds life force and high frequency of that plants energy. The Awen and spark of life is in each plant being. 

Using water and sunlight, the essence of the flower is imprinted into a remedy, that can be stored and used for healing. 

This healing energy of nature holds particular qualities, depending on the which plant flower it is. By ingesting this remedy or applying it topically to the bodies energy meridians or chakras, the healing qualities of that plant work as an allies to support the human energy field into a natural healthy flow. 

They do not effect the mind, in an altering way and it is not the body of the plant you ingest. Rather flower essences work on the emotional and subtle energy , and are a catalyst for inner healing and change.

How Do they Work?

The essence remedy holds the vibration signature of the plant and this energetic pattern is then imprinted and invited into your energy field. Using essences intentionally , bringing with it the insights, supporting your shifts in consciousness and the potential of balancing your energy body to a positive vibration.

It is the combination of subtle energies, with the focused intention of your heart and mind that can create profound shifts. They often allow you to meet unconscious layers of awareness and 'unpeel' layers of conditioning, clearing your energy blocks and bringing you into a journey of discovering the 'you' underneath. Flower essences encourage you to communicate with the inner life of your thoughts, your feelings and your soul. The intention is to moving through stuck energy and into equilibrium with your natural, balanced self. 

How do you take Flower Essences?

There are no set rules on taking essences, and it is guided by your personal choice. However key recommendations are to remember that   3 - 7 drops are enough to take in a 'dose'.  Take drops in water or direct on to tongue when you feel the need.

Avoid the pipette dropper touching your mouth/ tongue. This is important to keep essence clear bacteria.

For focused healing and changes- we recommend taking the essence regularly - ideally before sleep and in the morning or up to 4 times throughout the day. Find a pattern that works for you. 

You can also add essences to the bath or body creams. 

How long you take an essence blend for depends on if you feel a shift has occurred or if you still feel the need to take it. There are many essences that you may call on now and again for specific issues. ( for example if I get nervous about an interview or specific encounter I take mimulus essence). I don't need to take it every day.

But if I am on a healing journey with clearing or shifting my life I may take a blend for many weeks, even months till I feel ready to change the blend. For example, when had long lasting fatigue, I took olive essence for over a year, I now take it now and again.

Are Flower Essences Safe?

Flower essences are very safe and can be used by anyone, even children and animals. Essences compliment other healing modalities.  Flower essences have no fragrance, dye or artificial preservatives. They are made in water with brandy added as a preservative. So they tase of brandy. There is the option to have them preserved in apple cider vinegar if preferred.  There is nothing in them you can react negatively to, or that could interfere with medicines or herbs you are taking. All pure flower essences are neutral in nature and subtle in effect. If you happen to choose an essence that is not appropriate, it will simply have no effect. So there is no risk in choosing the wrong one.

Now, as gentle as they are, flower essences can bring buried emotions to the surface. So, on rare occasions you may feel uncomfortable before you feel better. But, this does not mean the essences aren’t working. In fact, the opposite is true. Those emotions are coming up to be released and that means you are allowing yourself to heal at a deep level.

What to Expect in a Flower Essence Healing Session

Flower essences respond to core emotions. Whatever you are working with we will find a bespoke flower essence combination to support you in that journey.

Consultations can be done in person, online or over the phone.

Throughout a healing session you will be held in a safe space and have the opportunity to share how you are, you will be witnessed and supported in this journey and a bespoke flower essence blend will be created to meet your needs and support your energy. You are invited to share as much as you wish about your situation and feelings. Or it can be dowsed and you can keep the details private to yourself.

The whole session is an energy healing in itself, and will include the option of short guided meditation and grounding to help you deepen and connect. You will have the essence sent to you in the post for you to continue the work and healing daily with a bespoke blend created for your needs.   

The essence will be mixed with spring water and bandy in a dropper bottle, they have a very long shelf OR if you prefer can be mixed with vinegar and then will last 6 months.
