Flower essences (also known as flower remedies) work on the energetic plane, removing blocks and dissolving emotional discord to allow for balance across body mind and spirit. They are liquid drops and are taken under the tongue usually morning and night though can be taken more frequently. Alcohol is used as a preservative so may have a strong taste but you can add the drops into water and take that way.
They are not essential oils, though they do come from the plant kingdom.
There are a few ways that they can be prepared, but usually sun potency is the main form. That is where flowers are picked from the plants and placed into a glass bowl of pure water. The bowl is then left in clear sunshine for a few hours, allowing the ‘life force’ of a plant to be imprinted into the water.
From there, they are preserved in brandy to form a ‘mother essence’. And then from there, we can make up blends called dosage bottles for people to take! It’s suggested that water retains the memory of the substance dissolved in it, which is similar to the philosophy around homeopathy and how their remedies are made.
All plants will have their own frequency to help any negative experiences be moved into a more positive alignment. I’ll give an example of Oak, from the Bach flower essence range. The Oak tree gives sustenance for many other creatures, so the Oak type helps others and shoulders great burdens of work and responsibility. It will struggle to produce leaves no matter how old or decayed it has become, and the Oak type can also break down, feel exhausted or fall ill from overwork, but will still attempt to carry on. Therefore, Oak may come up as a remedy to be included for those who are over worked, over conscientious, feeling despair and exhausted, and will help to bring about flexibility and resistance to stress so they can learn to delegate and begin to use their energies in a more balanced way.
Flower essences are something that I use in all of my kinesiology sessions. They are a powerful tool to assist in making change and resolve issues from the root cause. A personalised blend is a beautiful way to support your wellness journey. They come in 25ml amber glass bottle with dropper and will last for a few weeks to assist with issue at hand.
