I’m often asked why I make flower essences. The answer is two-fold. I’m passionate about empowering people to take their health into their own hands. And I’m part fairy.
We live in a culture where stress, worry and depression are the norm. Go see your doctor and find out what you need to do for your headaches, backaches, stomachaches. Your lack of joy and enthusiasm for life. Take this pill, have that procedure because doctor knows best. Rarely do we look at what is underlying the physical, psychological or emotional symptoms we are experiencing. Our culture certainly doesn’t encourage us to take our health into our own hands. Yes, there are times when conventional medicine and pharmaceutical drugs are necessary. I am glad to have had that option when I needed it. However, I am passionate about each of us having the final word about what happens to our body. The encouragement from friends, family and health practitioners to choose resources and options that create vibrant health instead of masking symptoms.
This is why I make flower essences. Not only do they work well for most people on their own, flower essences are also compatible with and complimentary to herbs, homeopathic remedies and essentials oils. Also to energy work, naturopathic or chiropractic treatments, meditation practice, as well as exercise and a host of other modalities and healthy lifestyle choices.
Now here is the fairy part. When I started taking essences from other companies back in 1996, I felt that I had found a long lost friend. I was remembering about them instead of learning about them. Since 2000, I’ve worked closely with the Plant Spirits, my Guides on other dimensions and the Fairies here at Tree Frog Farm to imprint the specific flower essence healing property of each plant into the shiso tea/vinegar or the brandy base as we have made each of our 131 essences. This is a gift I love to share.
In keeping with the theme of taking your health into your own hands, I’m suggesting our No Worry Be Happy Essence Blend and Stress Relief Aromatherapy Flower Essence Mister as resources. Devil’s Club Flower Essence is a key essence in both. Osoberry is in the No Worry Be Happy Blend and a wonderful complement to the Stress Relief Aromatherapy Mister. These are all on special during November.
The photo is a crystal formed when the intention and quality of love was imprinted into water, and then the water was frozen. This was the groundbreaking work of Dr. Masaru Emoto that has greatly influenced my work (see book review below). I’d love to see what the crystals of our flower essences would look like!
Take your health into your own hands. Listen to your body and inner counsel, and use all of your resources, including flower essences, as they are needed.
Devil’s Club Flower Essence
Devil’s Club Flower Essence provides support and comfort when life’s experiences have drained your inspiration and joy. It transforms thorns into a healing balm and reconnects you to your spiritual roots. Devil’s Club Essence is a wonderful ally when you carry the weight of the world on your shoulders and feel drained by the press of all that is hard to be with, whether it is part of your life or the larger world arena.
Another symptom, feeling cut off from your spiritual roots, may lead to grief, dissociation, addictive tendencies, abusive behavior or lack of inspiration. Physical symptoms may include respiratory problems, blood sugar imbalances like diabetes or inflammatory conditions like arthritis.
As Devil’s Club Flower Essence says of itself:
I AM solace to those who are spiritually wounded and world-weary.

No Worry Be Happy Essence Blend
The No Worry Be Happy blend of flower and tree essences supports flowing easily through your day focused on lighthearted playful joy and gratitude instead of troubles and worries. Anxiousness and worry occur when the energies of thinking and feeling get mixed together between the cognitive brain and emotional heart functions, when there are misalignments within the mental and emotional energy fields, and when you lose touch with your higher wisdom.
The No Worry Be Happy blend brings you back to your multidimensional heart while calming your mind and reconnecting you to your inner knowing. When you feel unhappy, anxious or overwhelmed by the demands of your life, it lifts your spirits, soothes your mind and settles your body. It encourages emotional balance and feeling at ease with yourself and your experiences.

The Hidden Messages in Water by Masaru Emoto.
I had been making flower essences for several years when I discovered this book. How exciting! When Masaru Emoto came to Bellingham, I went to see him. What a remarkable and witty person. I was sad to hear that he passed away in 2014. Still his books remain, The Hidden Messages in Water being the best in my opinion. Dr. Masaru Emoto discovered when specific, concentrated thoughts are directed toward water, and then it is frozen, that crystals form revealing the quality of the energy directed into the water. He found that water from clear springs and water that has been exposed to loving words show brilliant, complex, and colorful snowflake patterns.
In contrast, polluted water, or water exposed to negative thoughts, form incomplete, asymmetrical patterns with dull colors. The implications of this research create a new awareness of how we can positively impact the earth and – since we are 80% water – our personal health. And it confirms my experience that intention and spiritually aligned thought, in connection with downloading the plant spirit’s unique frequency, can create a flower essence.
