Flower Essences

"Food nourishes the body but flowers heal the soul"

What are flower essences?
Flower essences are liquid extracts, generally taken orally or as a spray around the body. They are used to address issues of emotional well-being, soul development and mind body balance. They are prepared from the sun infusions of wildflowers or pristine garden blossoms in a bowl of water. They are highly dilute and in this way similar to a homeopathic medicine. Like homeopathic medicines flower essences are vibrational in nature. Because of this they are safe for babies, children, pregnant mothers and even pets. Their impact does not come from direct bio-chemical interactions with the body but from their interaction on the human energy fields which influence our mental emotional and physical feelings of wellness.

Which Flower Essences will I need?

Flower essences will be selected based on our 1 hour phone call or zoom meeting. In this session I will get a better sense of your emotional and physical state and which areas of your life need balance. I use my clinical, coaching and intuitive skills to help guide our conversation and questions. We may discover themes or repeating patterns in your and your child's life that need healing. I believe that our children are sensitive to our emotional life, this is proven through a phenomenon called "mirror neurons." This is why I prefer to work with the parent-child pair. The synergy that is created here is powerful when both the child and parent take a custom flower essence. Typically a combination of one-six flower essences are combined in an 1 ounce bottle. You will each receive your own 1 ounce bottle.

How do I take flower essences?
Flower essences are taken 4 drops 4x day in the mouth. The most important times to take these drops is before sleep and upon waking. For a baby or pet a spray can be used to spray gently around the baby/pet. The essence is preserved with organic vegetable glycerin which was a pleasant sweet taste. Children typically love the taste and come to call them "flower drops." 

What will I experience?
Flower essences work gently yet powerfully. I have found that one combination works best when used over 4-6 weeks. At this point a new formulation can be made or we decide to take a break and see how this new state of balance feels. Taking your flower essences before sleep and upon waking is the best time to take them. During sleep we process much of our waking experience both daily and accumulated through our lifetime. So taking an essence just before sleep give the subconscious a hint of what we would like to heal from our experience. The shift from taking the flower essences can be quite obvious to subtle. A shift in emotional mood and behavior may occur within days or gradually over a month. You may experience a sudden insight, more clarity, fewer intrusive thoughts, an emotional release an emotional lightness, what bothered you may just not feel as pressing or raw anymore. Many people report having a more active dream life. The experience is individual. 

My experience with flower essences?
As a child I was given flower essences by an art therapist. I always felt a sense of love and guidance when I took them. I couldn't read the label but that didn't matter. I loved the sweet taste and there was a feeling of such care. Now I understand that feeling as attunement. Someone had taken the time to listen to my experience and made it into this beautiful remedy just for me. I remember experiencing many dreams and also crying sometimes to myself which was not a sadness but a sense of relief. Later in my twenties another therapist used these with me and I fell in love with them all over again. At this time my understanding of natural healing and plants was blossoming (hah!). I understood the power of these remedies from another level.

It is with great pleasure that I offer you this healing tool which has been a lifetime in the making, for you and your child's evolution.
