Flower Realm: Plantcestral Essences for Healing the Consciousness and Spirit

Working with Flower Essences, Plant Essences, and Gem Essences are my favorite realm of plantcestral medicine for healing. I incorporate them in EVERY form of medicine that I make, including the formulas in every single product line and personal custom formula I have ever shared with you all! These forms of medicine work at the vibrational rather than bio-chemical level. While tinctures and other extracts use strong concentrations of plant material to access the chemical constituents of the plants that can target the acute physical needs of our bodies, vibrational medicines work with the energetic imprint of the plant to shift and re-align our own energetic pattern.  All life is made of vibration and pattern, and so this medicine is capable of affecting the root of many health imbalances ranging from the spiritual, to the mental, to the physical, but it does so from accessing the spiritual and energetic root of where we ourselves have lost balance or gone astray from our own essential nature.  This medicine works with the more subtle energies underneath our ailments, the patterns in our consciousness that cause us to suffer, making them especially effective for working through emotional, mental, and spiritual imbalances, or physical issues that are caused or exacerbated by any of the above.  

Some things I love about Flower, Plant, & Gem Essences:

  • They require very little plant material to be used effectively, allowing us to utilize plant medicine while still preserving and honoring the integrity of plant life fully.
  • A little goes a LONG way! They are easy and abundant to share, making them more accessible and affordable.
  • They are most often water-based, and allow us to work with the powerful healing qualities of the water element in partnership with the cosmic light of the sun and/or moon and stars
  • The spirit of the medicines and of ourselves are highlighted and especially revered in these forms of medicine
  • They work very deeply and subtly
  • They are very safe and require very low dosages
  • They offer an opportunity for extra deep listening and relationship building as a medicine-maker (and a medicine taker :) )
  • They have been used traditionally by people for deep healing all over the world for thousands of years!
  • They connect us to the deepest and most magical realm of nature and the cosmos in such an intimate embodied way
  • WHO DOESN'T LOVE FLOWERS?!

There is a LOT to love about this form of medicine, and having an affinity to working with the emotional and spiritual roots of imbalance in our communities, I am especially excited to share these medicines with you all. This line of medicine has many formulas which have been revealed by my dreams, or have been inspired during times of my own personal healing needs. While most traditional flower essences are in a base of brandy and spring water, I play with different alcohols based on the energetic quality they evoke to support the theme and intention of the medicine at hand.  I also work with not only flower and gem essences, but "spirit doses", as my herbal teachers Karyn Sanders and Sarah Holmes taught me, of other plant parts extracts. A "spirit dose" is a small energetic dose of a tincture, which draws out the vibrational and spiritual qualities of the plantcestor being worked with, similarly to the way a flower or gem essence works though it may be the root or seed or leaf of the medicine that is present. It has a slightly different but similarly powerful quality to traditional essences. I also work from time to time with planetary essences or sacred site essences, which means that the water becomes medicine infused with the energy of the cosmic transits taking place or of the vibration of a sacred location or environment whose energy I would like to capture for healing.  How does this work?

WATER IS RECEPTIVE.

This is a fact which traditional people around the world have always known, and which was later scientifically studied and documented by Dr. Masaru Emoto, whose work proved the ways in which the genetic pattern and crystalline structure of water physically changed based on the energy and intention that surrounded it. These studies are significant, particularly when we consider the fact that both our bodies and the plantcestor's bodies are made largely of water! Water itself is the substance our life depends on, which nourishes and cleanses us, and which has been used and prayed on as medicine capable of healing, in and of itself.  The vibrational medicines I am sharing with you utilize this wisdom, inviting spring water to be a vessel for the vibrational wisdom and imprint of the flowers, gems, cosmic light, and sacred locations where the water is placed. They are made carefully and with clear intention in order to preserve the integrity of the medicine's intention. I also use pure spring water from sacred locations as much as I can to make all these medicines. 

Formulas in this line currently include Intuition, Sweet Hearted, Protected, Cosmic, & Uplifted. See my Medicinals page for specific details on the formulas, including more detailed descriptions, ingredients, dosage, pricing, availability, and more.
