Nature’s Elixirs Part 2: Flower Essences

Flower essences assist in healing all types of emotional and mental struggles. Since emotions often affect physical health, they can also aid in physical recovery. Unlike essential oils, they do not have a scent. Rather, they are the imprint of the energy of a flower. Let’s explore this healing tool! 

Flower Essences

What are they?

Aflower essenceis exactly what it sounds like—the essence of a flower. They are liquid, potentized plant preparations that impart the direct imprint of a flower. Flower essences work on the emotional and energetic body rather than the physical body. A flower essence can help you heal any emotional or mental issue. They were originally created by Dr. Edward Bach in the 1930’s. 

Flower essences are made by collecting flowers at their peak blossom and making a water infusion from them. The flower is laid in water in sunlight and the energy of the flower is transferred to the water. A mother tincture is made, diluted, and preserved with alcohol. 

Flowers in Glass Bottles

Flower essences are extremely gentle. They work on the emotional body in a subtle way. They can be used with any vitamin, herb, homeopathic remedy or prescription drug without interaction. Because they are so gentle, they are also appropriate for children. 

Using Flower Essences

I find that people are very good at choosing their own flower essences. Children are especially in tune with their emotions and are great at this. You can choose an essence by looking up a particular issue and seeing what essences fit with that issue. There may be multiple essences that resonate with you, and you can combine up to 7 essences together. There are also pre-made combinations that help with issues like grief, self-confidence, focus, and relationships. 

You can put flower essences under your tongue or put them in water and sip throughout the day. It’s important to repeat the essences at least twice each day, and to be mindful of why you are taking it. Be sure to finish the bottle when taking a flower essence. Many times, the progress on an issue is very subtle. But once a bottle is completed you should feel the effect. 

As mentioned above, there are hundreds of essences that can assist with virtually any mental or emotional issue you are dealing with. Here is a sampling: 

Buttercup—Calms feelings of low self-worth, the inability to honor your own uniqueness, and the release of the need for outer recognition or fame. 

Elm—Helps those who feel unequal to the task of personal or work obligations. Alleviates a feeling of being overwhelmed and allows you to have the faith and confidence to get through. 

Gorse—Enhances the positive qualities of conviction and hope and increases optimism. Especially helpful for those who are worried about the world and have trouble imagining positive outcomes. 

Impatiens–Alleviates impatience, irritability, intolerance, and always thinking there is not enough time. Helps us to be harmonious with daily rhythms, life events, and the pace of others. 

Pretty Face— Increases focus on radiance and inner beauty. Promotes self-acceptance in relation to personal appearance. Can also be supportive in cases where one fears the natural aging process.
