This is a compilation of information from all over the web about the Flower Essences that I make and collect from the land. Special Thanks to everyone sharing information about the wonderful healing properties of the flowers!
WHAT ARE FLOWER ESSENCES AND WHAT DO THEY DO?
Flower essences bring balance and harmony to our electrical systems.
Flower essences work directly with the “Soul.” Each flower has its own unique and beautiful vibrational signature. When used in meditation, the flower essences deliver personal messages to help us in our healing journeys.
The human body has within and surrounding it an electrical network. When we experience health, this electrical network is balanced and fully connected. When something in our life or environment compromises that balance, the electrical system responds by either short-circuiting or overloading. That imbalance in the electrical system immediately impacts the central nervous system and sets up a domino effect within the body that can lead to illness.
How do I use flower essences? They can be used in so many ways! Meditation, 2-4 drops on the tongue, in drinking water, spray bottles, and bath-water. Relax with them to absorb their wonderful vibrations!

Trillium (Trillium ovatum) – Encourages effortlessly integrating your personal energy into the Matrix of the universal All-That-Is. As the essence says of itself: I AM one with the Divine Matrix of Life.??
