There are innumerable benefits to flower essence therapy. At the simplest level essences can help us to erase some behavior, some thought pattern or some emotion that is not life-supporting - eg. Anger and fear. On another level, flower essences help us to identify some new energy that we would like to experience in our lives - joy, peace, self-confidence, abundance = an endless list of infinite possibilities to transform ourselves and how we engage in the world.
Flower essences are made by placing freshly picked flowers in a crystal bowl filled with spring water early in the morning. The bowl is placed in the sun - the sunlight acts as a catalyst to infuse the water with the energetic imprint of the plant. The water is then mixed 50% with brandy, which acts as a preservative. This is the Mother essence, or the first dilution.
