Opening to Flowers
A Flower Essence Class with Sara Crow L.Ac. from 5-6pm
Flower essences are one of the most overlooked botanical preparations with profound healing implications for our world. Flower essences are an energetic preparation of flowers primarily used to address issues related to the emotions, mind and soul. They work on the various energy pathways such as the acupuncture meridians to create health and well-being on multiple levels. One of the most important aspects of flower essences is that they are a gentle, safe, efficacious and versatile remedy for the whole family at every stage of life.
Flower essences can be easily combined and integrated into every healthcare modality. In this class you will learn:
- Why flower essences are an efficacious healing modality
- How they differ from other botanicals
- Energetics of various flowers
- FlorAlchemy’s Flower Essence Tinctures
- Different methods of application
These two classes are being offered as a package and are not available separately.
