What is a flower essence
A flower essence, also referred to as a flower remedy or floral essence, is a natural healing preparation derived from the blossoms of various flowers. This therapy is often associated with holistic and vibrational medicine, focusing on emotional and spiritual aspects to promote overall balance and well-being.
The process of creating flower essences typically involves the following steps:
Flower Selection: Practitioners carefully choose flowers at their peak bloom, often in pristine natural environments.
Infusion: These selected flowers are placed in a bowl of spring water and left to bask in direct sunlight for a specific duration, commonly referred to as the "sun method."
Preservation: Following the infusion process, a small amount of alcohol or glycerin, typically brandy or another high-proof alcohol, is added to preserve the flower essence, ensuring its shelf life.
Bottling: The resulting flower essence is then bottled and prepared for use. It is usually diluted when administered to clients or users.
Flower essences are natural gifts
Flower essences are not the same as essential oils or herbal remedies. Essential oils are concentrated plant extracts primarily used for physical health purposes, while flower essences primarily address emotional and mental well-being. One of the most well-known collections of flower essences is Dr. Bach's 38 flowers, widely available worldwide. Notably, many individuals, including high-profile figures like soccer player Lionel Messi, turn to flower essences to manage high stress and emotional challenges.
Flower essences are natural gifts, bestowed by nature to assist us in our life journeys. They are safe to use and do not carry negative side effects.
Bring the healing power of flowers into everyday life.
