Selecting and Using Flower Essences

To use flower essences, choose an issue you are dealing with in your life – relationships, lifestyle, self image, stress level, career matters, or simply general well-being.  Then select a few flower essences which most precisely describe your current situation, using the list of qualities linked below. It is best to work with no more than three to five essences at a time, so that you can focus clearly on the main issues.

Flower essences are taken a few drops four times a day, over a period of one month. During this time, become aware of changes in your responses toward the selected issue. Occasionally people experience immediate or dramatic changes when taking flower essences. Others may have difficulty perceiving any changes. The most typical pattern is to discover the gradual effect of the essences over a period of time.

Flower essences are not panaceas, but rather inner catalysts that stimulate our  ability to respond, or take responsibility for our growth. Flower essences are most effective when used as part of a wholistic program of health enhancement. They support other therapies and health practices by stimulating greater awareness of our inner life, and building a vital bridge between the realms of body, soul, and spirit.
