Working with flower essences for over fifteen years now, I consistently see great results with them. In fact, I make custom blends for nearly every client I see in my clinical acupuncture practice. Flower essences are subtle energetic remedies that work directly on the immaterial parts of ourselves such as our emotions, mind and soul and their effects can range from subtle to profound. Over the years, I have wondered if there was a way to enhance the effects of the flower essences to make them more effective for a greater number of people. This interest set the stage for something I feel is quite innovate and profound to emerge.
During my time working with the flowers, I have come to understand that by combining a physical component with the energetic component of a flower, the result is a multidimensional preparation that enhances the effects of both.
Our new FlorAlchemy Flower Essence Tinctures are a unique combination of flower essences, floral alcohol extracts (tincture), and floral essential oils. Together, they create a special and powerful dynamic that enables our physical bodies to assimilate the energetics of the flower essence more effectively. The bioactive flower tincture acts as an opening agent and anchor for the more ethereal energies of the flower essence. Likewise, the flower essence enhances the floral tincture and the essential oil by adding another important dimension boosting its healing qualities. The different floral preparations act as a cohesive unit of transformation working synergistically to enhance healing. In my mind, FlorAlchemy’s Flower Essence Tinctures hold a special place of bridging the ‘heavenly’ or ethereal energy of the flower into the physical body.
Another reason I feel it is important to offer a preparation that combines flower essences with flower tinctures and floral essential oils is due to their combined action of concentration. The Flower Essence Tinctures represent the full spectrum on a scale of botanical concentration from very subtle to extremely concentrated. If we are to think of botanicals on a scale of concentration, the traditionally made flower essences are on one end of the spectrum being the most subtle and refined of the botanicals (similar to homeopathic remedies). The essential oils are on the other end of the spectrum, being the most concentrated. Traditional tinctures could be considered mid-range. Our Flower Essence Tinctures combine these three major levels resulting in a versatile, full spectrum, gentle and effective new type of botanical preparation.
Flower Essence Tinctures differ from traditionally made flower essences. Because the Flower Essence Tinctures represent a wide range of bioactive floral concentrations, they are much more focused on stimulating the body directly to create physical health and well-being. On the other hand, flower essences have a more psychological function and generally they work indirectly on the physical body by addressing emotional, mental and soul components of physical imbalance. The Flower Essence Tinctures give an additional level of action. Therefore, we can think about choosing a Flower Essence Tincture when we would like to integrate the bioactive and antimicrobial action of the flowers for physical health and well-being while simultaneously addressing our emotions, mind and soul.
