Flower essences are infusions created from the flowering part of the plant. The healing properties which these essences hold is one of the reasons for the growing popularity of their use in vibrational medicine. Here are the top 10 things you need to know about flower essences…
Many people think flower essences have a fragrance or that they are like essential oils. This simply isn’t correct. Flower Essences embody the healing energy and wisdom of a flower. Each flower has its own unique healing vibration. If you’re attracted to a certain flower, it’s because on a deep subconscious level it is speaking to you and may be beneficial at this moment in your life. It can help you move beyond any challenges that you are currently facing.
2. They Were Used in Many Ancient Practices
The Aborigines used flower essences some 50 thousand years ago to not only heal themselves and their tribe but the earth as well. The Ancient Egyptians also used flower essences… they were used in Pagan rituals too. You may have heard of Bach Flower remedies created by Dr Edward Bach in the 1930’s. These are used in much the same way as Australian bush flower essences.
3. They are Used Globally
The Australian bush flowers are known to be the most psychically clear of all the essences and that is because Australia is such an ancient civilization; the flowers are grown in relative isolation compared to the rest of the planet. Each wildflower targets a specific emotional, mental, physical or ailment so they are extremely potent indeed. People living in Australia usually resonate more with the native Australian flowers and can get better results. People living in Europe may benefit more from Bach flower remedies.
4. Flower Is Most Evolved Part Of A Plant
Flower essences are made specifically from the flower part of the plant, which is infused with purified water, leaving its imprint of the remedy. This is then preserved either in brandy, vinegar or vegetable glycerin.
5. Environmentally Sustained
Flower essence therapy is one of the most environmentally friendly industries in the world because nothing is either harvested or destroyed in the process. In Australia, it is illegal to pick wildflowers from road verges or public parks and we must gain permission from nature spirits and elders if on sacred land.
6. Non-Invasive Healing Modality
Flower essences resonate with you on a very deep level and bring about profound healing and change for the better. Flower essences will bring subconscious fears to the surface so that they can be released through the realm of the heart, improving your self-awareness, self-love, self-esteem and self-confidence. They also work on transforming emotions such as grief, guilt, anger and resentment and help to clear pathways to new positive beliefs and behaviors. They aid in the release of old traumas and ancestral patterning bring about much-needed inner peace.
Flower essences work on theories of vibration and focus on your core issues. They will either start working immediately, over a couple of days or even over weeks or months depending on the issues are dealing with.
They are safe for children as young as 6 months old and pets love them too. Although they don’t work on the physical conditions of heart disease or cancer, they will start unveiling the belief patterns that sit behind the creation of those illnesses. So, as you can see, they are exceptionally powerful and the more that you have worked on your spiritual development, the better results you will obtain.
8. Symptoms Can Initially Get Worse
If you are wanting to clear deep-rooted emotional trauma, which can play havoc when emotions rise to the surface to be released, you may feel temporarily worse before you improve. For example, the Sturt’s Desert Pea can trigger floods of tears as it helps you to release grief from the lung meridian.
9. Communication Through The Doctrine Of Signatures
To help you to understand what each flower is there to help you with, it is really important that we understand the language of the flower. This is known as ‘the doctrine of signatures’. Each flower speaks to us through its color, texture, smell, numerology, shape and size etc. For example, the Australian Bottle Brush looks just like a brush and is great for clearing out the past, making way for new beginnings and may also help with constipation.
10. Versatile Usage
You can use Flower Essences topically or orally. Most commonly you place a few drops under the tongue. You do this morning and night, depending on what’s needed and the advice of your practitioner. It’s best to do this first thing and last thing when your brainwaves are in the alpha state. You can also add to your water bottle and sip throughout the day.
Did you know, you can also put them in home care products, food, massage oils, sprays or mists to clear negative energy? I always recommend saying a positive affirmation when taking a remedy to support the healing taking place with that flower such as “I love and accept myself just as I am’.
