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.
