Have you ever tried flower essences? Chances are if you have, you’re obsessed. Everyone I know who has tried Flower essences has an amazing story to tell about synchronicity, magic and transformative healing. 


Flower essences are vibrational remedies created with the flowering parts of plants. The remedies don’t actually contain any botanical elements, they’re really an energetic imprint of a flower into spring water.  You can ingest flower essences that are made into a tincture/remedy or you can put a few drops of the remedy in your bathwater. Some people even spray them around their bodies to feel the effects.


A flower essence preparer takes great care to capture the energetic resonance of a plant. Preparers often make essences at special times like the full moon or the new moon- making the energetic remedies that much more potent. They then put the flower essence water into a natural preservative like brandy, grape alcohol or glycerin. 


Making a flower essence is definitely alchemical magic, but taking an essence is a whole other level. 


When you take a flower essence you’re essentially taking on the vibrational resonance of the flower in the essence. This is very healing because flowers have the ability to heal our emotions. Each flower has an emotional range, characteristic and issue that it can bring to light in our psyches. Essentially, when we take flower essence remedies we’re moving issues from our subcontious, from our auric field, emotions trapped in the body into our conscious awareness: this makes flower essence remedies stellar tools for gentle but effective healing.


Flower essences have a really nice effect on the chakras which makes them a great tool of choice for money energy workers and natural healers. 

There are seven major chakras. Five are aligned vertically along the spine and two reside in the head area. Each of these major chakras uniquely influences various physical and spiritual aspects of your life. When one of the chakras goes out of balance, it leads to a physical, emotional or mental impact on your body. Because the chakras are dependent and related to each other, it is important to understand the various aspects of these seven chakras and practice ways of maintaining them in balance.

Since all flower essences can influence the chakra centers, there are many different remedies you could take that would have a healing affect on the subtle body, however we noticed there were some specific issues related to the 7 chakras that if brought into balance, would create so much space, joy and balance for our clients. So, we decided to create 7 strong chakra remedies that would speak to the biggest and most challenging aspects that come up in our lives. 

For example, one of the 7 blends is a remedy called “Loving”. This remedy was created to balance the heart chakra. It has a special combination of the flowers Nootka Rose, Bleeding Heart, Spreading Phlox, and Borage.

This heart chakra remedy has the ability to help us attract new and more harmonious relationships. It also assists with heartbreak and releasing past relationships. Each flower has an area of expertise that relates to heart opening and healing; when all the flowers are combined into one essence blend, the healing is amplified and well rounded. 


If you feel there are emotional issues that are hard to overcome, maybe you want to heal a particular relationship, or you’re looking to create positive change in your life, flower essences may just be the answer. 

Flower essences are subtle enough to take on your own and are often safe for children, pets and pregnant women, but it doesn’t hurt to have some guidance around which remedy may be best for your particular situation. In this case, we recommend working with a holistic practitioner or flower essence practitioner. You can also find a ton of educational resource regarding a flower essence blend from the flower essence maker/distributor. At all times, simply follow your intuition and it should lead you to the right essence for you at the time.
