Blue Flag Flower Essence


30 ml (1 fl.oz)

A flower essence of fresh blue flag (iris versicolor) flowers. The flowers were ritually harvested from the wild and mindfully prayed over. A flower essence, made from a significantly diluted solar infusion of water and fresh flowers, is a gentle way to work with this beautiful but poisonous wetland iris. Blue flag contains the poisonous glycoside iridin and just touching the sap can irritate the skin.

Blue flag is used in Bach flower essence therapy to inspire creativity, to unstick what is stagnant, to dissolve boundaries that no longer serve, and to create new boundaries. As an aquatic wildflower, blue flag energy is all about the element of water and its flow and ebb. Flowers from an ever flowing stream have purposely been used to make this essence in order to draw upon the movability of water and its cleansing powers and avoid stagnancy in life and in emotions. In folk magic blue flag is traditionally used to attract financial success to yourself, your job, or your business – keep the prosperity flowing!

Flower essences embody a living tradition of magical herbalism. In use since the early 1900s, flower essences are not tinctures but diluted cold water infusions of the fresh flowers which are harvested in a mindful ceremony and prayed over. Developed by Doctor Edward Bach in the early 1900s, they are meant to be ingested in homeopathic amounts to help with emotional pain such as fear, uncertainty, loneliness, oversensitivity, burnout, sadness, and trauma. Flower essences made from poisonous plants are safe to ingest and can be used for spiritual cleansing, magical rituals, anointing, and plant spirit communion.

We sell flower essences as 30 ml stock bottles. A stock bottle is simply 50% best brandy and 50% aquifer water. Three drops of a flower’s mother essence are put into this stock bottle and we ship it to you ready for use. The mother essence is the pure cold water infusion of the fresh flowers which are harvested ritually, prayed over, and infused in the morning sun for a couple hours before straining and using to make stock bottles. The finished flower essence you receive is a diluted version of this mother essence preserved with the alcohol. There are only three drops of a mother essence in each bottle of our flower essences.


To work with blue flag flower essence, take three drops under your tongue 1-3 times a day for a period of 3, 6, or 9 days, weeks, or months depending on your situation.

To use this flower essence for magic and ritual, take three drops before performing ceremonies of working with ancestors, soul flight, plant spirits, animal spirits, or deities. Add the flower essence to ritual baths or holy water. Use it anoint candles, talismans, herbal sachets, etc. Ask the plant spirit for aid and guidance through rough times. Don’t forget to leave an offering to the plant after it has helped you and the circle of giving is complete. Fitting offerings include incense, honey, spring water, tobacco leaf, or help cleaning up a local waterway.
