Using Flower Essence Remedies Can Be Habit Forming!

But I mean that as a GOOD thing! Ideally, of course, you won't need the same ones forever and ever! I HOPE NOT! But, if you're like me, once you've experienced the healing power of flower essences in your own life, there's no going back. Did my Releasing Worry and Fear or Restful Sleep formula help you feel less anxious before bed? Then maybe you'd like to experiment with what a formula for increasing your concentration or attracting a partner might be like! Did you fall in love with my Open-Hearted Loving formula? What other great feelings do you want to experience in your life?

How Dr. Edward Bach's Development as a Medical Doctor Led to the Creation of the Bach Flower Remedies

Happy Birthday to Dr. Edward Bach, inventor of the Bach Flower Remedies!

Julian Barnard, who is quite the researcher in the field of flower essence therapy himself, has a set of videos about the Bach Flower Remedies on the Healing Herbs website. The first one gives a bit of the background behind how a respected medical doctor progressed from being a researcher in immunology to exploring homeopathy, the closest precursor to flower essence therapy. It's a very long video (31 minutes) by internet small attention span theater standards. But it is interesting if you're curious about how the body responds to flower essences and why. More conjecture in this video than proof, but it does give an idea of what the thinking might have been behind this innovative approach to health and well-being.

I use Bach flower remedies made by Healing Herbs and Julian Barnard in my Mama Love flower essence formulas.

Clearing Negativity for Spiritual Growth Using Flower Essence Remedies

This formula was  originally designed both as a scented spray to act like a smokeless smudge to clear negativity from one's self and from an environment in preparation for spiritual practice. (See links below.) But at the same time I decided to experiment with using the flower essences in water with brandy in a Bach Remedy-style dosage strength dropper bottle and found that I really liked how my attitude improved!

It was during the 2016 election season. I believed my candidate was cheated so I was angry all the time and felt like I ought to meditate because I was having a hard time reaching for a more spiritually aware point of view. But I just could not get myself to do it! (And I wasn't alone--you should have seen my email!) Using this formula helped ground me, and I seemed to lose my interest in focusing on the angry upsetting things I was seeing in my Facebook newsfeed or on the evening news. The more I used it, the more I found myself choosing to focus on positive things that I could do something about. It wasn't that I felt or feel powerless in terms of the political arena— in unity, at least, there is strength—but rather than continue to sing my "I been done wrong" song, I shifted my focus to how things could go right. And I started to explore how my pessimism was affecting the choices I habitually make in my own life. I found myself reaching, without conscious continual effort, in that direction. Things changed. Things are still changing. In some respects, you might say it initiated a turning point in my life. I made significantly different choices and where that will lead is looking interesting, surprising, and is still in progress. 

One thing is true for sure: I've learned that I don't always know what's best for myself, never mind what is best for all concerned. As I said, surprising revelations have occurred. I'm finding myself more and more in a "show me the way," "demonstrate what is in my highest interest," "I allow myself to be blessed" attitude. It's sort of changing the whole game plan.

Mama Love for Clearing Negativity

Abundant Prosperity Flower Essence Formula

I am FINALLY getting around to adding conventional flower essence formulas to my shops! Don't ask why but I didn't conceive of my business model as providing traditional Bach style flower remedies. All my formulas were originally combined with essential oils to make topical flower essence oils and sprays.

But I use my formulas often enough as conventional flower remedies! So today I start adding them to my shops. The first -- because it starts with the letter "A" -- is Mama Love for Abundant Prosperity. It contains North American flower essences, the flower power of Zinnia, California Peony, Iris, and Madia. It is for releasing stuck energy in the second and first chakras and cultivating feelings of joy, safety, prosperity, and abundance while promoting the creative inspiration and disciplined focus to go after your heart's desire. I like it because it helps you lighten up, relax and manifest from a place of comfort and positive expectation.

Mystic Natural Botanical Perfume

Visions and inspirations, spiritual sustenance and support. That is what comes to mind when I think of spiritual perfume. Did you know that all perfume was at one time thought of as a spiritual salve for the spirit? My Mystic perfume is created in this vein as well.

The scent of incense in the woods… Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Angelica, and Clary Sage with flower essences especially chosen to enhance the emotional profile (so you feel as good as you smell) in a skin-soothing base of pure organic jojoba oil. This very special offering is highly concentrated (about 17%) parfum strength. 

Dance into the mystery! Feel guided by the Light. Let your dreams inspire you. Let your Spirit take flight. That’s the experience of the MYSTIC.

In my new Flower and Spirit shop on Etsy.
