How Do I Use Flower Essences?
Flower essences are most commonly taken orally from the dropper or in drinking water. However, they can also be very effective when used on the skin, in bathwater, or in a spray mist. Generally, we recommend taking 1 or 2 drops (not dropper fulls) of an essence 2 or 3 times per day. If you know you are sensitive to essences or other energy modalities, you may want to start at a lower amount. Flower essences support our life, learning, and healing processes, and can be used with any healing modality for humans, animals, plants, land, and the larger systems of our environment.
How Do I Choose a Flower Essence?
We suggest using a method to choose flower essences that call on your body wisdom rather than picking one just by the description alone. Remember: With flower essences you are not only trying to eliminate a symptom but you are reconnecting a “blown circuit” causing the underlying imbalance. Methods to access your body wisdom could include using kinesiology (muscle testing), a pendulum, your intuition, or sensing a magnetic sensation between your hand and a bottle. We suggest using one of these body wisdom methods in addition to reading the description. By working in this way you not only rebalance yourself, but you’ll also get more information about what is creating the underlying imbalance.
