FLOWER REMEDIES 101

 

What are Flower Remedies? 

Flower Remedies are liquid infusions of fresh flowers into water that contains the bioenergetic imprint or life force of the flowers. As the perfect encapsulation of the quality of a flower, an elixir can be taken internally or applied topically, shifting your mood within minutes. 

(Flower Remedies/Flower Essences/Flower Elixirs ~ These terms are all interchangeable!)

Different from aromatherapy, Flower Remedies don’t have a scent and they work through the acupuncture meridians. They are a liquid infusion of a flower or plant's 'chi' or life-force, whereas an essential oil is distilled or extracted from the plant into a highly aromatic oil. Essential oils also require huge amounts of plant material for distillation, but in the making of a Flower Essence, only a small amount of blooms are required -- making them is one of the most sustainable forms of natural remedies.

How do they work? 

When taken internally or applied externally, Flower Remedies work through the acupuncture meridians to shift our state of mind, often within minutes, with an exponential effect over time. Like acupuncture without the needles!

It’s all based on the premise that your body operates like a finely-tuned instrument. Sometimes, it rings with perfect pitch — everything in perfect alignment. Sometimes, it needs a little re-tuning.

Flower essences act as a natural tuning fork — bringing your body back in tune with a subtle electrical vibration.

And the best part is: you can choose your desired vibe! Maybe today it’s love, curiosity, or compassion. Maybe tomorrow it’s trust, focus, intimacy — or all of the above!

For every mood + feeling, there is a flower -- I have yet to find a mood/feeling/state of being that does not have a flower to assist!

What will I experience when I take flower essences?

Within hours or days of implementing flower elixirs into your life, you experience less irritation. Life becomes smoother. Stress begins to dissolve. You sleep more soundly. Overwhelming emotions get softer and lessen. You notice a sense of perspective and relief.

Over time, you let go of relationships that don’t work, form new ones that do, open more fulfilling career paths, and do things with joy that you used to be afraid of. Resilience is unveiled, self-limiting beliefs dissolve and your talents begin to shine. Your dreams awaken and you become the best version of you.

After 3-5 days you will start to see a shift - sometimes it's subtle, but it can be dramatic!

After 1 month of regular use you will start to notice the shifts really settling in and becoming a part of you.

The real magic starts to happen between 3-6 months! I recommend that people take before/after photos. You may notice the lines on your face softening, your eyes are more sparkly and your posture is different. 

Me personally? I am on them for LIFE. 

Don’t just take my word for it! Try for yourself & see what happens!

Which type of Flower Remedy is the best for me? There are so many ways to take them!

The answer is all of them! The key to using Flower Remedies is frequency of use!

AT LEAST 5 times a day, every day. 

Harness the full power of flowers by incorporating the elixirs, mists and oils into your whole daily routine. It will become a flower ritual you’ll look forward to! As an idea, you can add the elixir into your water bottles, then drop some into your coffee/tea during the day! When you want a refreshing petal boost, you can mist yourself as the day progresses with the aura mists. You can use the anointing oil on acupuncture point. Just wait, it will become a non-negotiable aspect to your day in no time!

 

 

What are some typical reasons people take Flower Remedies?

Seriously, the list is endless - but here are some of the biggies that I see over and over...

  • Stress + Anxiety
  • Sleep
  • Lack of self confidence + self worth 
  • Grief
  • Loneliness
  • A cluttered house + mind
  • Emotional eating
  • Negative self talk
  • Hyperactivity + behavior issues

(Flower Remedies are NEVER a replacement for medication or a trained medical professional)

Who can take Flower Remedies?

Literally anyone and everyone can take Flower Remedies. They have zero side effects, other than quite possibly changing your life!

  • Pregnancy is an amazing time to take them as the baby is getting all the benefits at the same time! 
  • For babies up to 1 year we recommend the Mists and the Serums as the Elixir does contain honey. If you are nursing then the baby will still be getting all the yummy benefits if you are taking them!
  • There are no contraindications for any medications you may be taking.

What happens when I take Flower Essences? 

When you first begin taking Flower Essences, after 3-5 days you will begin to notice a subtle shift in energy.  Suddenly, you feel less irritation. Days run smoothly with less stress and more ease. You sleep more soundly and wake up with a refreshing energy. Strong emotions get softer and lesser. What’s even more exciting is that the positive benefits of taking Flower Essences become exponential — over time, it accelerates personal growth. think: transformations in relationships, career, jobs, where you live, what you do in your free time. Flower Essences offer a perfect introduction to this magical world of positive change.

Think of Flower Essences like your life coach, but with less talking!

Can I take more than one blend/elixir at once?

Did you know that all of our blends/elixirs can be used at once? Multiple Flower Essences will work together to best benefit your state of being. If you want to pinpoint the results from a particular flower elixir, we recommend starting with only that one so you can track the specific results more easily!
