Flower Essence Guide

What are flower essences?

Flower Essences are the energetic imprint of flowers in water, which work to free up emotions and free you from imprinted behaviors and thought patterns. As with herbal medicine and oils, each flower ministers to a specific emotional need. Unlike essential oils, flower essences only affect emotions, but this often transfers to clearing or alleviating physical issues due to their underlying emotional root.  

Talk to me about Energy Healing and Christian faith.

Flower Essences are safe for any faith following, but I do know that energy healing can trigger concern for some Christians. As a Christian Flower Essence Practitioner, I see each flower carrying the imprint of Romans 11:36 and other scriptures that tell us from the beginning, God has been revealed through nature and that all good things come through God. “For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be the glory forever. Amen.” Romans 11:36 (NLT) Everything created carries a vibration of its origin, which we know to be our Creator God. You, me, and all of nature! Just like when hearing a single chord of music, we feel a resonance or vibration in our own being, all things carry their own unique energy. Flower essences are the gentle extraction of this vibration captured in spring water and then further diluted. Because of this, there are no flower smells and no plant allergies to contend with. All that remains is the gentle, targeted ministry of each unique flower.  

Why would a Christian need flower essences?

God gives each of us gifts, but it definitely happens in the lives of many, that events and external messages hinder our ability to recognize those gifts and use them for God’s glory. As a Flower Essence Practitioner, I’m here to help you unstuff old emotions, drop faulty armor, and grow emotionally and spiritually toward your fully integrated, beautiful self. I’m honored to provide natural remedies that support your self-healing journey in a way aligned with God’s spiritual gifts. The shop’s name Common Good is based on the following verse,

But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit [the spiritual illumination and the enabling of the Holy Spirit] for the common good.” ~ 1 Corinthians 12:7 (AMP), emphasis mine

I chose this name so that I will always be reminded that I’m using my spiritual gifts to assist you in actualizing yours!  

What if I have allergies?

Because flower essences are captured by allowing flowers to float atop spring water while sitting in the sun, only the energetic essence of the flower is captured in the water. The flowers are not steeped or submerged in the water, thus the physical properties of the flower are not transferred.  

What if I’m sensitive to alcohol?

As with many natural remedies and tinctures, flower essences are preserved using brandy alcohol. The ratio of water to brandy is a 1:3 ratio, which equates to about 4 drops of brandy over the day when taken as directed. If this amount is still concerning, we can leave the brandy out and instead use a half and half combination of spring water and apple cider vinegar. The taste will be altered and can be strong especially for kids and pets! But we’re all about choices, so let us know if this is what you prefer! We’re happy to make the swap!

**PLEASE NOTE** Because each individual essence is already bottled, there will be trace amounts of alcohol even when subbing apple cider vinegar in your individual bottle.  

How Do Flower Essences Work?

Every emotion you experience is a movement of energy in the body. This is why there are usually physical attributes felt alongside emotions! Flower essences work by a principle of resonance. This means they retune the energy left behind by emotional experiences, bringing your body to a higher vibration. Quite literally, they change the energy within you. This means they are most effective when they match the core challenges you face. When essences merely address surface symptoms & feelings, you may not notice much impact. Conversely, working to address too many root issues at once can be disruptive. This is why working with a Flower Essence Practitioner who makes you feel comfortable is an important safeguard.  

What flower essence is good for anxiety?

This is one of the most common questions about how to use flower essences. All of us experience anxiety at varying levels, so this isn’t a wild surprise. Flower essences minister to specific emotions, but there are a wide array of flowers that assist us with any given emotion. While there isn’t one answer to satisfy the question of what flower essence is good for anxiety, I do have a blend of 7 individual flower essences for anxiety that approach the issue from different angles. Blends typically include 4-7 flower essences that work together with some equipping you to release the targeted trapped emotions while the others install the desirable counterpart. So in this example, with my Inner Peace blend of flower essences for anxiety and depression, some work to release trapped anxiety, and others work to install peace and confidence.

Do I need a Custom Blend?

Usually, pre-made blends like this one are a great way to start with flower essences. Often, they offer a great starting point to clearing out surface issues. But because each life experience is highly personal, sometimes only a Custom Blend can reach the depths of your emotional roots. When the effects of a pre-made blend that worked previously seem to plateau it may be time to meet one on one and create something more targeted.
