A flower essence is a natural , vibrational remedy made from a small amount of flowers steeped in water , which is then preserved to harness the healing qualities of the flower. They contain no scent but do carry effective transformational qualities.
Like homeopathy, flower essence therapy works on an energetic level to restore the equilibrium of the body , mind and spirit. They contain no scent or perfume and should not be confused with essential oils and herbal tinctures. Essential oils are much stronger and do carry powerful scent . The art of making flower essences requires only a small amount of flowers seeped in pure crystalline water. The healing signature of the flower is infused into the water and carefully preserved, made into a flower essence, which can be taken as drops into the mouth or included in a mist for spritzing , or added to natural perfumes to be taken in through the skin. Which ever way you choose to use flower essences they have no negative side effects. A small amount of pure alcohol preserves the essence.
Flower essences have been used for healing for centuries by our Australian Indigenous people and other native cultures including those from America , Europe and Asia. They have been made know to us now largely through the work of Dr. Edward Bach of England. He practised orthodox medicine until the end of 1918 when his increasing awareness of health and disease led him to the study of homeopathy. His interest in this and in the health of the whole person led him to uncover the remarkable healing energy in making flower essences. His lifes commitment to this work has seen it flourish and grow world wide , into a widely acceptable , holistic option for re-establishing health and wellbeing.
Taking flower essences infuses our beings with their healing frequencies and can effect positive change on spiritual , emotional , mental & energetic levels, thus improving our lives, creating more balance, awareness and often helping us through lifes challenges.
Sacredflower flower essences.
Sacredflower flower essences have been created by Sienna Moon in the Byron bay region of Northern N.S.W. Australia. All the flowers used in the set have been found and created, in reverence and ritual, by her. There are 33 essences in the original Sacredflower set though Sienna has made, & continues to make, many more flower essences that are being used for healing and ceremony in various forms. The Sacredflower essence set has an accompanying pack of visual flower cards and a little book written by Sienna to assist in imparting the wisdom of the flowers and the blessings of Mother Earth to all. Simple common names are used to identify flowers in an attempt to make it easy to relate and become familiar with the healing available to us all the time from nature.
With the Sacred flower essence cards you can also spend time gazing at the image of the flower , reading its offering to you, meditating on its healing qualities, saying the flowers prayer, breathing in the wisdom and beauty it has to share.
Sacred flower natural perfumes and flower essence mists contain both flower essences and essential oils. The essential oil element, Aromatherapy, is what gives the products their scent. Essential oils carry powerful healing properties. Essential oils are concentrated extractions of flowers, plants and trees. The science of Aromatherapy is an in depth art and requires many years of study to qualify. While Sienna is an Aromatherapist, for healing purposes she works largely with flower essences, earth wisdom and vibrational healing modalities , channeling their light and love through prayer and meditation.
Using essential oils and flower essences for insight, presence, union with Spirit, balance and ceremony is one of the oldest forms of healing we know. Many cultures worldwide use plant / flower medicines for ritual and all round wellbeing; sacred herbs, oils and resins for smudging and purification; and essential oils and flower essences for all of the above. They are offerings from Earth Mother to keep us healthy and connected to her life force and beauty way.
