Did you know that Flower essences can be a personal ally?
Essences can guide you while you work through emotional challenges, make difficult decisions, manifest your desires, and for countless other endeavors you may be working on or through in your life right now.
Here's a little description of Flower Essences and how they work in case you're new to their delicate yet powerful healing properties:
What are flower essences?
Flower essences are liquid extracts, which can be utilized to help address issues of mental-emotional well-being by increasing Soul Access. They are part of the field of energetic medicine, including such modalities as homeopathy, acupuncture, reiki, and others, which work directly with the energetic systems and fields of the body.
Where did flower essences originate?
Although flowers have been used for healing for many centuries, flower essences were made popular by English physician Dr. Edward Bach in the 1930’s. He prepared 38 remedies, mostly from English wildflowers, which he experienced himself personally as able to address the range of human suffering. Since then the knowledge of flower essences and their healing applications have expanded widely.
How is a flower essence created?
Flower essences are diluted herbal infusions, which are prepared from wildflowers or garden flowers. They are traditionally made directly in nature, by floating the particular flower in water while bathing it in sunlight to gently extract its energetic imprint, its essence! After floating in water under the sun the plant matter is later removed, and then a preservative is typically added to the remaining water so that the essence can be bottled.
Why use Flower Essences?
They are completely safe to use. They won't interact with any medications you are taking and are inherently gentle in their healing application. They are a tool you can use in combination with any other therapy you are utilizing. They can only add support to your endeavors for healing and growth.They provide inspiration and guidance, an "access point" to your Soul's voice. Experiment with them and discover all the ways they make the presence of Spirit known.
