Flower Essences differ a lot from common medicine.
They simply offer a natural effective system which releases blocked energies held within our body, mind and emotions.
The Energetic Impact of Flower Essences By Rhonda PallasDowney DiHom, Herbalist
Living Flower Essences (LFE) contain a sacred plant energy which can balance human discord, re-establishing the link between body and soul, nature and spirit. These flower essences are plant helpers that teach us to live life at its fullest with greater self awareness and to connect us with our Divine nature.
Each flower or plant has a unique form, smell, color, texture, taste, and a special “sense” or gift that it will share with others. The flower or plant offers a special message or lesson which arouses a feeling and/or thought unique to the flower’s own identity and individualization. The characteristics and personalities of flowers offer a lesson or message exactly at a time when we need it most, helping us be in touch with our innermost natures.
As you use Living Flower Essences, you will soon experience the powerful yet gentle effects they offer you. Treasure the gifts of these special plants and allow your own personal growth to unfold and blossom.
To utilize the plant’s unique energy pattern, flowers are picked and placed in a clear glass bowl of purified water. This is called an infusion. The infusion containing the flower’s blossoms is set out in direct sunlight, or in some cases, moonlight.
The energy of the light – sun or moon – extracts the energy of the blossom into the water and creates a life force pattern which reflects the character of that flower or plant. The energy pattern is stored within the flower essence and can be used for physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual healing.

LFE’s repertory consists of plants chosen from natural habitats or organic gardens free from toxins.
Expectations of Flower Essences:
Flower essences can work subtly or dramatically. Usually it takes time to observe and feel the effects of flower essences and how they make changes or shifts in your life. Flower essences are one tool among many that helps us to seek greater understanding and guidance of our innermost natures.
Take 3-4 drops under your tongue 2-4 times per day, according to your needs and level of sensitivity. You may decide to take the flower essence more frequently (such as 6-8 times per day) for the first several days. This may help you to heighten your sensitivity to the flower or plant, and then you can gradually reduce the number of times taken per day according to your own needs. Continue to take the essence as long as you wish. You can also add flower essences to bath water, spray bottles, the family water crock, or to your animal’s water bowl.
A Guide to the Selection of Flower Essences:
Generally choose the essences to work with one at a time up to four or five essences. Begin focusing on a key issue that you or another need help with. Silence, prayer, meditation, conversing with others, inner processing, and awareness of patterns can offer guidance in choosing which flower essences to use. Pay close attention to the captions as well as the descriptions of the flower to see which ones you are drawn to.
